Great Meal. We are locals who dine out often and this was our first time at Rhubarb since the pandemic. All 4 of us we super happy with the service, the quality and taste of the food and the size of the cocktails. Smiley, our waiter, although he was serving both inside and outside was outstanding, attentive but not overbearing. We will be eating here often.

Staff was exceptional. The food was over the top!! Farm to table, everything was delicious.

We ordered all the starters/appetizers/small plates and a couple entrees. Shared between 5 of us and we were absolutely stuffed, but not feeling like you ate a buffet.

I do recommend visiting here with at least 5 people in your party so you can try everything on the menu.

Thank you to the Rhubarb staff and cooks, truly a top 5 dining experience in my book.

The drinks were very good, the oysters Benton was amazing but our entree wasn’t worth $30. The steak was good potatoes were bland pickles shallots were the best part but i only got 1.

No bread with omelet, salad hardly had any dressing, just a few strawberries and pecans. Poor quality for the price. Friendly staff, loud people on the terrace. Been here before and had a much better experience then.

The wait staff was wonderful! The bartender was the best I have ever had in my whole life. (and I've met a few) I came in so hungover and he did everything he could short of giving me an IV drip to help me feel better. I am, however, confident that if he had one he would have administered it right there and then.

The food is also amazing although I nibbled as a corner of my fried chicken biscuit. Although, my fiance convinced me to take it to go and I absolutely loved it cold and straight out of the mini-fridge in our hotel room. The sweet and spicy sauce was to die for but in this case, it brought me back to life. She was a big fan of the shrimp and grits -I say even if you are dining alone get both because from experience the fried chicken will keep.

The cocktails were some of the best I've ever had. Highly recommend the Garden Party and Bloody Mary. All of the ingredients were super fresh and serving sizes were modest.

Sadly disappointed in our experience. Food very average, portions extremely small- didn’t live up to what we had hoped for. I never give a bad review but don’t waste your $$ or time.

Service was very slow and somewhat sassy( not in a good way). For farm to table, we expected a whole lot more. Everything was bland and boring. The best thing we had was the hush puppies???? And we had a wide variety. From tenderloin to trout to duck. Disappointing at best. Too much good food in Asheville to try this again.

The food was fantastic! We loved everything about it, but although our server was helpful, she wasn’t especially friendly. No worries! I’ll consider her behavior “COVID stress” and will look forward to a return visit! Great restaurant.

Server was exceptional. Food was excellent. Rednecks gunning their coal-rolling pickup trucks near the table non stop was a mood killer. Very expensive.

We had a wonderful dinner with some shared plates and an entree. The hushpuppies are delicious - with the amazing butter, of course. The sweet potato & carrot soup is lovely and quite filling. Wonderful burrata. The steak dish looked SO GOOD (I'm not a beef eater) and my friend gave the nod that it was.

Solo diner here, came to Rhubarb for my birthday dinner. Was seated at a lovely 2-top, facing the outside dining patio. I enjoyed the shrimp and bacon toast and the seared ricotta gnocchi, with a fun flavored soda. My server was attentive but not overwhelming and I wasn't made to feel like I was in a hurry. Overall, thank you for making my dining experience enjoyable as a single person. Often we feel conspicuous or uncomfortable, but Rhubarb welcomed me and treated me kindly.

Great service. We ordered a mix of small plates and shared an entree and they timed the food out perfectly. Food was amazing. We started with the pimento cheese hush puppies, then the Apple compote burrata, and paired the trout with ricotta gnocchi which was a perfect mix for the two of us. Great drink selection as well.

Hostess was abrupt. Even though several other tables were available... She put us by the kitchen were the smoke and smells Made it uncomfortable. When we ask for a different table she simply was abrupt and said she couldn't give us anything else. We had a reservation we showed up on time and other tables were clearly empty. Food was OK but I won't go back.
