Rhubarb serves seasonal, regional American fare, sourced from nearby farms and dairies. Acclaimed chef John Fleer, formerly of Blackberry Farm, and his team craft a daily-changing menu including wood-fired dishes, plates made for sharing, house-baked breads, and other rustic creations. A thoughtful wine list showcasing natural and biodynamic wines and a full bar round out the offerings. Rhubarb asks that parties of 6 or more please contact the restaurant directly. We are closed every Tuesday.

We were not enthralled. The ingredients are all excellent, and the quality is great, but the cuisine was rather uninspired, in our opinion. Nothing interesting, and what we ordered was well prepared, but nothing that truly jumped out at us.

Another excellent meal here! The food and the service are top notch and the innovation and attention to detail are exquisite. Such a Great Neck's of fine dining elements in a casual relaxed unpretentious restaurant.

Rhubarb was recommended by a friend, and she was right. It was a great place to eat while we were visiting Asheville. Our waitress Brandy was very nice, and the food was delicious. The Burrata appetizer and the lamb ribs were delicious. We will return if we're back in the area again.

Everything on the menu is so creative and complex, I couldn’t choose! We ordered 8 different shareable plates and every single bite of everything was an explosion of flavor and perfection! The chef Derek is a genius with food. It is a farm to table restaurant with an ever changing menu which is awesome! The staff is very friendly and attentive. I can’t recommend this enough!

My wife and I eat (mostly) vegetarian and found enough very well thought out options to keep us satisfied and happy...not feeling like the poor-relations who drop in unexpectedly. Pickled vegetables and desserts are especially good, the latter are not cloyingly sweet. We were especially impressed with the parsnip in one of our desserts and fig in the other.

The food at Rhubarb is delicious. Everything from the barbecue lamb ribs, to the shrimp and grits with a twist, to the baked chicken. We haven't had a bad meal there yet.

My husband and I were in AShville for our 20 year anniversary and Rhubarb was perfect. All of the food was fantastic. The butter with the bread basket was totally worth trying. Our entrees and soup were amazing!

A massive homeless community is permanently camped out in front of this place. Constant cigarette smoking and loud crude conversation can be overheard. Also unwelcome interaction with street people.

As it always is the food and service ant Rhubarb is incredible. We did the "special" dinner of the night and each step was served perfectly and tasted wonderful. This menu changes daily and is worth as stop.

Came highly recommended via Hotel and Food and Wine. We had the meatball appetizers which was good when mixed with hominy but not flavorful, main course was the pork which was also good over the black eyed peas though honestly it was something I could have made myself. Desert was the chocolate brownie batter which was the best thing by far. Our waiter was spot on. Overall average

GG Potatoes with pork chop were greasy and way undercooked. A Berkshire 1" chop would have been tastier. Loved tarragon. Fewer fries on delicious burger would be better. Add grilled fruit???

We were very underwhelmed with the food. We had the cheese plate and pickled veggies. Nothing stood out as being great. We then had the tuna which was ok then the lam ribs which were very gamey. Lastly we ordered the malt dessert and received the wrong dessert 2x. Not impressed

Despite a very pleasant ambiance, Rhubarb was a severe disappointment. Though I am an omnivore, my friend and I both ordered vegetarian dishes. A confirmed vegetarian, he reported the California breakfast to be utterly undistinguished and I found the so-called mxostic mushroom cassoulet to be a grave overstatement. There couldn’t have been more than five shitake and similar mushrooms in what was basically a mound of navy beans. A true cassoulet is a glory; this was not. To be fair, the side of breakfast sausage, however, was excellent, tasty, perfectly crisped. A final note, the server was astonishingly unprofessional and inexperienced. I’d not likely return.

Amazing that a restaurant purported to be highly rated could be so be so average. The portions were small, the food cold and the attitude just as cool. Don't waste your money.. There are other better restaurants in Asheville!
