During our "Girls Trip" in Asheville this weekend to celebrate several of our birthdays, we found this restaurant Saturday night through Open Table. It was a last minute pick after we all arrived in town from our various departure points: Philadelphia; Washington, DC. area; Savannah and Loris, SC.
Since it was in a hotel, we were a little skeptical about the quality of the food and service. But starting with the appetizers, we knew we were in for a treat. From the garlic mussels, to the calamari, the trout, roasted vegetables, sauteed mushrooms, and all of the other dishes we ordered, the food burst with flavor. We were so impressed with the freshness and perfectly seasoned meals, we asked to meet the chef -- who by the way was also very pleasant!
Our waitress was also a delight. Not only was she friendly and engaging, she lit up the room with a radiant smile and wonderful energy!
For five African American women who were dining for the first time together in Asheville, Roux was a hidden jewel worth discovering!
We loved our dinner at Roux. Food was cooked perfectly and the service was awesome.
We LOVE Roux; You should try it! Then YOU will to ...
The banana pancakes were AMAZING! I’ll definitely be visiting again next time I’m in town.
The food was excellent from the appetizer to the dessert. I had a pork tenderloin dish with a ginger sauce, crispy Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. My husband had the filet. Everything was cooked perfectly. He had homemade ice cream (Chocolate Peanut) for dessert. A fruit bread was included with dinner which was amazing.
Our waiter couldn't have been better.
The restaurant is in the lobby of a hotel. A turnoff for some, but we like it because it is convenient to the movie theater and great shops. The décor, is actually quite pleasant and surprisingly quiet. But the food makes this place. Outstanding! Have never had anything we didn't like. They have a cream of mushroom soup that is to die for, and their salmon and steaks are always cooked perfectly, and they have a wide variety of perfectly cooked veggies as well.
We had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner at Roux. It was a little noisy. Food was very good.
Great food and service. Gave roses to the ladies. Steak was cooked perfectly.
Good food and excellent service. Located in hotel lounge area. Great for a bite before or after a movie at Regal.
We went for Resaurant week. Good food, good service, half price wine on Wednesday. What's not to like?
