The menu reads well so we were excited but the actual execution is pretty sloppy. Average food.

Overall, everything was delicious and service was great, but we were expecting a different menu and also the shrimp and grits had this strange tomato sauce that seemed like it was tomato paste and unseasoned. We sent it back and got a salad instead. Our waiter, Walker, was extremely accommodating and in the end we had a great meal!

Sunday brunch herb omelette was bland and the shrimp and grits were not worth bringing out of the kitchen. Large parties with poor acoustics. Long wait for a table that we had reserved. Saw no one leaving so why the long wait for our table?

Everything here was fantastic. I am gluten free and dairy free & I was able to find a lot of options. Our waitress also triple checked everything with the kitchen staff. Fresh, local ingredients. Awesome vibe. Will be back whenever I am in town.

Food is very eclectic. Not my style. I had the trout which was tasty but veggies and rice was cold. My husband had the flank steak, which he wanted med/rare and he got rare. It tasted good but.... desert was good but not great. Service was awful. The waitress Melissa couldn't care less and then complained about a 15% tip. Seriously. It's farm to table, so.its really fresh, but...... if you don't mind weird/oddd food combinations and cold side dishes, go for it. We won't go back. Too pricey for what is being offered.

Fantastic! Go, go hungry and for certain have the hush puppies. We had a range of small plates and dinners and one dessert. Everything was remarkable - fresh, delicious, wonderfully prepared and beautifully plated.

Gazpacho was excellent. We have had better hush puppies, though many other diners were ordering them. The trout was outstanding and the half chicken super tasty and generously portioned.

Our first sit-down, outside, served restaurant meal since March 2020. It was wonderful all around. Riley was delightful and took excellent care of us. Would highly recommend Rhubarb and, in particular, the mushroom cavatelli and chicken.

We went for an early dinner. Our server was Riley, and she was amazing. The food was delicious — the watermelon basil soup was absurdly good, as was my husband’s boudin sausage, the goat cheese and peach appetizer, and our main courses. I had the sirloin and he had the trout, and both were absolutely scrumptious. The wines were excellent; my first was the Riesling, perfectly chilled, and I switched to the Malbec for my main, which was good, but not as fruity as I like. I had the Semillion with my dessert — the peach sundae — and while they brought the Sauvignon Blanc, they immediately realized their mistake. We were all masked and it’s hard to hear through a mask. They immediately remedied it and brought me the correct wine, and I was one happy camper. Could not recommend Rhubarb enough!!

A bit overrated. Food was good, menu was limited. Service was below expectations (took 10 minutes and then had to remind our waitress to get a glass of wine I ordered.) She had an attitude.

Booking 2 weeks in advance allowed us to reserve a table outdoors. Beware if you think the noise level will be less than at an inside table. Directly next to the outdoor patio is a prime spot for street groups to set up and "serenade" the appreciative (read that, loud) people surrounding them. Until the night's group unhooked their amps and departed our foursome needed to shout to be heard across the table. Next time- inside table. Aside... Carrie, our server, was excellent. Knew the menu and the wines and offered suggestions on both. The entree portion of the menu is not expansive but the unusual appetizers/ small plates add just enough to the meal. Carrie checked on us often, always at hand to fill water glasses and remove used plates and wine glasses. She was a 10 at a time when good servers are sorely lacking in most restaurants.

We have been on vacation in Asheville for a week… trying different restaurants each day…. this was by far our favorite!!! Food was superb. Everything was ‘farm to table ‘ fresh and dishes were creative and excellent. Waitress very attentive. Our only down side was band outside ( not associated w Rhubarb) was a little loud.

All our food was very good..beautifully presented. Service was very good. Sitting out side was noisy because of the street musicians performing at the entrance to the restaurant which made it difficult to carry on a conversation at times.
