A thoughtful wine list showcasing natural and biodynamic wines, local beers, and a full bar with seasonal cocktail creations round out the beverage program. Each week at Tuesday Table, the restaurant offers a unique family-style, prix-fixe menu for a convivial community experience.

  • Tuesday Table Prix Fixe

    $50.00 per person

    Multiple dates available
    Fans of Sunday Supper, rejoice! We are bringing back our prix-fixe, family-style menu on a new day. Each week will have a new set menu with snacks, a salad, an entree (with vegetarian options) and dessert served for the whole table to pass and share. The dinner table is a universal opportunity for us to reflect on the day and on shared experiences. It is where kids learn to talk, listen, share, and become a part of a community. Families and communities harmonize naturally at the dinner table, at a restaurant or in the home. That’s how we hope everyone will experience Tuesday Table. The upcoming menu can be found on our website; please note any dietary restrictions when booking, as the a la carte menu will not be available.

    Amazing food in an unpretentious atmosphere. We did 3 starters and 2 entrees. The starters ended up being the star of the show, although the entrees were also quite good. I would definitely recommend it and would also revisit Rhubarb on my next trip.

    We sat outside...hence the "energetic" sound level & so-so ambience. Service was very good (Michael) & assistants. The food is unique & imaginative & delicious. The menu is on the short side - might take a look before reserving - but obviously carefully chosen & prepared. The reservation process seems a bit over the top, but maybe that is what they have had to do.

    Made reservations 6 weeks in advance, Rhubarb is highly rated, and advance reservations are required, so we had high expectations. Unfortunately, the service was very slow and inconsistent. First, we ordered (expensive) wine and boiled peanuts to start, when the wine arrived about 15 mins later, the wine server who also appeared to be the manager, said the peanuts would be comped due to the wait. We got the other pre-main items a while later, and then waited for 45 mins without a check-in from our waiter, and then he said there was a table of 15 guys ahead of us so their ticket was in first to the chefs. Maybe 10 mins later we got our main dishes. One dish, the highly promoted pork loin was cold. Once we got the waiter's attention about 10 mins later he offered to get it heated up. We declined. Then waited for the check when the dishes were cleared. He then said he was getting us a dessert to share between 3 adults to make up for the cold pork entree. We did not ask for the dessert - it was a pretty lame quid pro quo for a pricey cold entree delivery. After that, the check was delivered and we asked him to remove the charge for the cold entree. He resisted and told us he gave us a free dessert. We didn't ask for dessert so he went off to speak with the manager - the same person who delivered the wine. She returned with an adjusted check, and we paid and departed. The waiter had too many tables to attend to. His attention to our party was inadequate. His service and attitude were unacceptable. Overall we were quite disappointed with our Rhubarb experience and will not return.

    Arrived for a Tuesday Table dining experience, a three course delicious evening. Our starter course actually had 4 components, two salads, one with arugala, kale, delicata squash and apples, and another -- broccoli with chilies and cashews. Both delicious. I really enjoyed the slight heat of the broccoli dish. The main course --. Brisket and Biscuits --- so tender and delicious --. Served with potatoes and pickles as well as a sauce. Our finale, the grape pie, was unlike most anything I've ever had, sweet pie and the little bite of buttermilk Chantilly cream offset it perfectly. Would go back for another exploration of Ashville's farm to table dining. Attentive service, fun evening

    We were vacationing in Asheville and had seen Rhubarb recommended in various social media and articles. We ordered hush puppies, duck confit and grilled trout filet. Everything was delicious. The restaurant had a cozy ambience and the staff were all quite friendly. We very much enjoyed it here.

    The best part is use of the local farmers bounty we loved our Salumi presented on a cool ceramic tray with local cheeses and meats relishes pickles olives -Great starter with the Heron Cabernet Sav ! Our favorite was the scallop and vegetable chowder topped with a savory biscuit and fried okra the smokiness of the bacon the creaminess was outstanding ! The vegetable plate was nice and well balanced the pork loin was good but needed more punch with seasoning or better sides -The bartender and her service was good -she was very knowledgeable about the food which definitely is a plus ! Good overall

    We tried a number of top restaurants in Asheville, and Rhubarb was our favorite. We ordered 4 of the mid-sized dishes for two of us and they were fantastic. The scallops/biscuit and goat cheese barrata we're the favorites, but the melon sales was really unique and interesting and the short rib cannoli was great too. Really enjoyed the food, service and place

    Excellent food well prepared. Flavors that were surprising and wonderfully paired, often from local farms and with fresh food in season. The ambiance was not great: dark and very noisy. I should have taken a table outside but thought it a bit risky. Our server was just a bit too solicitous at first and somehow just not very connective, but that was not a real problem.

    While our server was great the management and food were well below average. Out of six of us two meals were sent back and one never arrived and that was after waiting at least 45 minutes for our food. After we called the next morning to let them know about our experience their only way of making it right was to offer us a gift certificate, knowing we were out of town guests. We will NEVER return to Rhubarb and DO NOT recommend this poorly run restaurant to anyone. This is the first time I have ever reviewed anything.

    Rhubarb was a nice surprise. We were expecting very good, and got excellent. Nicely done trout with tasty veggie remoulade. Excellent desert (the brownie plus, or whatever they call it). Sitting near the door and the kitchen made it harder to hear for me. Our wait staff were very good.
