    Awesome meal at Rhubarb. 5 stars all around: - great layout, ambiance and vibe - helpful, attentive service. Always available, but not intrusive - Pimento cheese hush puppies - awesome warmup course - Brussels sprouts - I’m a hard-core carnivore, and I loved these. Would return just for this dish - pork loin- fantastic. Peas were an unexpectedly good complement to the pork - trout - top notch. Great seasoning - fry bread - not my favorite, but a beet lover would probably love it - wines by the glass - all good Book this place, order the Brussels, and enjoy

    It was a great experience. Great service ! Our server appeared a little green to the service world but her energy and wonderful personality made it a great visit. Food was fresh, appeared locally sourced and every dish came out timely! Desserts were a little disappointing after such a great meal!

    We ate peanut and butter squash soup, Sweet potato and Trout filet under Full Plates. The dish looked great. Very creative, special and unique combination of lot of different ingredients for each dish, yes. That we appreciated. However, they were not tasty at all. The soup was too salty, nutty and sour. Sweet potato dish was too sweet and mushy, Trout dish did not really have any flavor. The foods that look like find dining but with no attractive flavor….

    Warm and cozy atmosphere. We felt welcomed and I credit the hostess for not calling to my attention I arrived one hour before my reservation( I thought it was 6pm and it was at 7pm). I realized this later. The table was great and our server friendly. The food was good. The best aspect, to me, was the comfortable ambiance. Perfect for a chilly weeknight. Would definitely return. Love the location too. So easy to walk to from many downtown hotels.

    This is one of our go-to places in Asheville. I think they do a great job of changing things up based on what’s in season and doing interesting things with traditional Appalachian ingredients. Good wines and beers too! And excellent staff.

    We went for my husbands birthday. Each couple had an alcoholic beverage, got an entree and a smaller plate. The waitress seemed very annoyed we didn’t want to each get large plates. Brought our food them immediately brought one check trying to get us out of there. There were 3 separate couples trying to pay. She made us feel very beneath her & their restaurant.

    Rhubarb as always delivers. The food and service was wonderful. Carrie was our server and was wonderful in helping with wine selections. We sat at the kitchen counter and enjoyed getting to watch and chat with the team. The food was all fantastic, the burrata especially was a favorite. Everything on the menu I would get again. This is a must visit restaurant for any occasion.
