Best meal we had in AVL. The menu is full of unusual and amazingly fresh items, and everything surprised and delighted in the best way. If you want an elevated NC meal, this is your place. Hands down.

Absolutely amazing! Food and service were incredible. Green onion hush puppies were to die for and my steak was cooked perfectly. Local IPA on draft. Couldn’t have asked for a better dinner!

We had a great experience. The food was fantastic! My husband especially loved the rabbit!! The menu was smaller, but the items they had were very well done. We started with the gnocchi and it was fantastic.

My husband especially loved that they had a decent selection from the local breweries.

Food selections are good and the selections are well prepared but they seem to lack taste - could use some more spices

We had red snapper crudo, lamb ribs, and hush puppies for dinner and the rhubarb cake and a cheese plate for desert and it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Top ten definitely. On top of that, the ambiance was so slick, the staff was super friendly and the location was great for walking around after dinner. Eat here.

We were very underwhelmed by everything. The food was average at best. Tried three appetizers and the lamb ribs were inedible(overcooked with bland sauce) and hush puppies were only okay. The steaks were cooked properly, but accompaniments bad. The fish bland. The pork tenderloin was good, presentation was uninspired. For a farm to table restaurant this was a disappointment. Not everything on drink menu was available.

I.5 hour visit limit. Felt extremely rushed as the server brought the bill out just after my last bite. I appreciate their staff for being there and working but based on the visit I had I would not go back.

The food was delicious! Our table was located by the kitchen and the temperature was very uncomfortable due to it being extremely hot, otherwise the service was exceptional as well as the food.

Went to Rhubarb for 5 year anniversary dinner visit to Asheville and it was superb. Great service, cute restaurant and out of this world food. We got the goat cheese hurrays, ricotta gnocchi, green onion hushpuppies with sorghum butter and split the sirloin (cooked perfectly) with smashed new potatoes and English peas.

We love visiting Asheville and Rhubarb is always on our list. This visit did not disappoint. I love the fact that the menu is never the same. Taylor was our server and she was great. Foo prices are simply up these days; the restaurant was not inflating prices at all, but going out to dinner is just expensive. Make a reservation and enjoy this gem. I'm THRILLED this restaurant survived the pandemic.
