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.

Dinner was absolutely wonderful. We love restaurants with small plate options, which allow us to try more! I loved the hushpuppies, duck wing confit and steak. We will be back

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.

It was very good. We were sad that they changed the menu to not include our fave item but otherwise it was ok. A little chilly outside so dress warm if on patio. Server was excellent.

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.

We sat outside and the ambience was excellent. Enjoyed the live music from sidewalk performer during dinner. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing even with our specific window of dining time due to covid capacity restrictions/reservations. Every dish was DELICIOUS and our specialty cocktails from the bar hit the spot. I wish we lived closer to go back and taste more of the menu asap.

This is a quaint restaurant with excellent food. The waitress excitedly tell us there is an on-site bakery but when we asked for bread with our meal, she told us that bread could only be served if we ate three particular entrees. Since we eat a plant base foods, we couldn’t have their wonderful bakery bread. Very disappointing.

Although the food was wonderful, we had a pretty negative experience with our server. After we left a generous tip and signed our check (which she was there for) she very rudely didn't say anything (not thank you for coming in or have a nice night) and just walked away from our table rolling her eyes and with a glare on her face. It was a really negative, odd experience at the end of a lovely (and expensive) night. We'd like to think we were ideal guests and didn't do anything to upset her so it was really off putting to be treated so rudely.

We understand everyone has bad days, but it wasn't a great way to wrap up our anniversary celebration.

The food was outstanding! Our plan was to order a couple small plates and a couple large plates. We ended up order several small plate before the main course because everything was so amazingly delicious! It didn’t hurt that our server was pretty great too : )

Another great brunch at Rhubarb. 3 of the 4 of us had the Shrimp and Grits - always a winner; the 4th had the burger - also always a winner. It is so nice to be back to in-house dining and we are looking forward to more Rhubarb.

Loved this restaurant. The service was amazing. The food was good. My only issue was the biscuit part of the fried chicken biscuit was dry and hard. The flavors were still good though. My husband had the potato hash and liked it. Overall a great experience. I would return but would probably not order the fried chicken biscuit again.
