Contemporary American
Table is a small, seasonal, New American restaurant in the heart of downtown Asheville. Always inventive and at times whimsical, chef Jacob Sessoms’ daily changing menu is inspired by a wealth of American culinary traditions, paying particular homage to the South. Upon opening the doors in 2005, Table committed to supporting, celebrating, and showcasing regional and sustainable agriculture. Jacob and his team foster long-standing relationships with farmers and purveyors in Western NC and throughout the Southeast.

Complimenting the critically acclaimed cuisine is an equally intelligent and imaginative wine and craft cocktail list, represented both in the dining room and upstairs at The Imperial Life cocktail and charcuterie lounge.

Please contact the restaurant with any questions, or better yet, stop in to say hello!

Greeted by the waitress who did not offer up her name. Seemed rushed & often impersonal at times. As far the food, the gluten free bread was amazing as well as the pork belly. Also the carrots were great. The only veg entry option was a butternut squash crostini which was underwhelming. Gordon Ramsay would have chewed & spit it out. It looked like a 7 year old made it.
No one asked how we liked it & took it away with only a few bites being eaten. Not good.
Overall, would not go back or recommend.

Great service, good food which changes daily so don’t mind the online menu! The restaurant was pretty empty on a rainy Sunday night so I can’t really judge the ambience but it is a cute place.

The “Tastes” and Appetizers were outstanding. The tile fish was very good. The $110 bone in Ribeye was very tough and chewy. Crispy potatoes were undercooked.

Food overall was good. The chicken was the hit of the night. Skin was very crispy and the meat was perfectly cooked. Juicy and moist, highly recommended. The tile fish was good but nothing special. Under seasoned and slightly over cooked. Overall a good meal that will bring us back.

They're trying too hard to be cutting edge. Menu items have one-word descriptions of the tasty but obscure ingredients, which you're expected to know or be subjected to condescension from the wait staff. Example: "Wreckfish, Dashi, [some vegetable], Delicates." You'll need to come with culinary school training, thick skin, or willingness to suspend your rules about using a phone at the table.

Unfortunately I would not recommend this restaurant to others. My family & I consider ourselves "foodies" from the "Triangle" area visiting the area of graduation. I will begin with the very limited menu. Language used on the menu that even slipped by our table of educated consumers. EVERYTHING on the menu is a la carte. Prices are steep! Dishes were "okay", nothing to rave about or leaving any of us wanting more. Entree ranged from $25 - $110! Really! :( So many other great places in Asheville to eat without walking away feeling remorse & regretful. Dine at your own risk, but make sure you are carrying plenty of cash -

Poor experience based on kitchen, waiting time for food, and horrible food. We were greeted warmly, and our server was wonderful. When food arrived everything was burnt or over cooked. The “side salad” was huge pieces of Bibb lettuce accompanied by dirt, bugs, and was wilting. We were so amazingly disappointed. We told the manager and left without eating or paying.

Have been here three times. Had two good meals before last night. Last night was TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTING. The four of us shared the 32 oz ribeye​, the Fried Chicken, Whole Snapper and bread plates. Dinner came to just under $300. It just was so NOT worth it!

Both the fried chicken (supposedly brined) and the whole snapper were incredibly​​ dry. Clearly overcooked. The prime rib was not memorable and not worth $110. The best parts of the dinner were the sides of cauliflower and smashed-fried yukon potatoes w/chimichurri.

My brother ordered a "Black Russian" (Kalua and Vodka). Turns out they were out of Kalua and offered up Frangelica???? (Not sure how they thought to sub hazelnut for coffee) My drink was so unbalanced I had to send it back.

Hate to say we will not be returning.

Interesting different ingredients and preparations, all cooked perfectly. Service by teams was quite effective. However, it is a small (tiny) restaurant and had two big parties filling the place with far too much noise and activity. One portly gentleman was backed up to our table with no room for servers to get around. Will not be back.

Ten guys . . . all "foodies" . . . all impressed with the food, service and ambiance.

Having great staff is such a luxury - and Table has got that covered.

I look forward to my third visit!
