    The food was so disappointing. If I had paid $10, I would have been disappointed. Just no flavor, nothing tasted good. The fact that the bill was over $100 is an absolute joke. I don’t leave reviews but this was the most ripped off I have ever felt.

    We loved everything except the two vegetarians in our group we’re not happy with their options and in the vegetable plate meal wasn’t great. However I had the chicken and my husband had the pork tenderloin—-both amazing. Overall —the food was fantastic….they could do a little work on their vegetarian options. But loved it!

    A lovely evening with yummy dishes. Don't miss the cornbread starter, heavenly. The Red Shrimp with a touch of popcorn was perfect. Amazing fresh farm to table offerings. Some unique and delicious cocktails were thoroughly enjoyed. Our server was friendly helpful and fun. Thank you Rhubarb. We'll be back.

    We enjoyed the cocktails. The servers who brought the food were lovely. The bartender unfortunately was not personable in the least. We love to sit at the bar but not this one. We liked the food but the rhubarb and berry salad was extremely tart. We will try it again to make sure this was a fluke evening.

    Extremely pleased with our experience from the personable waitress Carri to the delicious entrees. The goat cheese burrata is a must but ask for an extra slice of the delicious locally grown tomato. We sat outside on a lovely Asheville evening and found a dynamic but slightly noisy street scene. Had a very enjoyable time elevated by a fun and informative waitress Carri. Highly recommend when visiting Asheville.

    Service and Drinks were great. Our starters were both dry and over cooked with a noticeable burnt after taste. We could not finish them. The trout entree had good flavors but was cold. I feel like this restaurant might be better than the experience we had due to its success and popularity over the years. I think our experience was just a miss.

    Honestly, extremely disappointing experience. Food was overpriced and underwhelming. Hush puppies and cornbread were flavorless and significantly over cooked. Burrata came with “toast” that wasn’t crisp and fell apart. Pork loin was fatty and rice undercooked. Sat on the patio and it was very loud and rowdy. Our server was great, everything else was not.

    Restaurant space was fairly typical of current trends - fresh flowers on the table in handmade pottery bud vases was a nice touch. The restaurant smelled like woodsmoke from a BBQ pit. I loved that, but it might not be for everyone. The food was delicious. Fresh, local ingredients. The peach and tomato salad was refreshingly tart and sweet. My duck confit was tender and delicious. The grits that came with it were creamy with a nice flavor. The trout was good but the shaved vegetables that came with it were a little overwhelming. The rye and rhubarb dessert was outstanding. Wonderful flavors and textures.

    As with all restaurants post COVID, they were definitely scrambling to provide service as best as they could, with the staff they had. Our waitress was running circles and doing her job and everyone else’s job. We appreciated her effort and great attitude. The food was amazing and it was the best meal we had in Asheville.

    The first two courses we ordered were excellent and then the last two were a tragedy. Lamb ribs were black and charcoaled, overcooked. The chicken of the woods mushrooms with fingerling potatoes were dry and over cooked, inedible. It was a shame seeing an indigenous food treated that way. We had high expectations, and became disappointed by the end of our experience. Our wait staff was absolutely wonderful, though. I think his name was Christopher.
