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!

Simple delicious and beautiful in all ways. Service were very considerate. We had allergy issues and the server checked with the chef on several items and offered creative options. The presentation was beautiful on the plate and delicious to eat. I loved being connected to the farm—- the source of the food. Will come again next time we are in town.

Excited about the menu. Had reservations. Walked into venue and immediately to our right was two cooks discussing when their shift was going to end. We were then greeted by “Do you have a reservations?” 3 of the 10 tables were seated and we were told to wait. I went to the bathroom and came back, my guest went to the bathroom and came back and we were still not seated. I was enjoying a great wine list and was excited about my food order to receive a raw egg and 3 ingredients missing from the dish that the server told me were part of the ingredients of the dish. I was starving so I asked for a cooked egg rather than a whole new dish. While removing the raw egg, I uncovered 4 tbsps of vinegar and oil pooled in the bowl. My friend ordered crispy fries and got greasy limp saturated fries which were inedible. The worst part about the experience was that 3 of 3 servers did not acknowledge the discarded oil, soggy fries or the service return to the extent of service avoidance. On our way out, we observered another patron sending food back bc her shrimp was uncooked and she opted not to have another dish. I would not recommend this place due to food quality and lack of customer service.

We enjoyed our brunch at Table

The Devils on Horseback was absolutely delicious and left us wanting more. And everything we ordered was so satisfying and tasty— the Israeli breakfast, shrimp and grits and steak and eggs.
And our server was friendly and attentive.

In my humble opinion the kitchen is staffed by zealous black belt cooks who blend art and science successfully. Simply splendid food and wine served by truly lovely people. I make it a point to dine at Table every time I visit AVL. Go. Eat. Be happy!

The actual execution of our dishes wasn’t great. The tuna was overcooked and didn’t have a dead on it. The rib-eyes were also not cooked well. It almost seemed like the pan they used wasn’t hot enough. The acoustics and noise level made it almost impossible to hear the server, let alone have a dinner conversation.
I had high expectations for the food but wouldn’t go back or recommend it.

As always, the food was delicious. The service this time was a little off. Little things like not bringing enough ketchup for French Fry's and when asking for some, it never arrived. Also asked for sweetener for my coffee and by the time it arrived, the coffee was no longer hot. While the food was generally good, I specifically asked for my French Fry's to be cooked well done and delivered hot. My opinion, is that the Fry's at this point should not have been delivered cold and soggy. Nice try, but swing and a miss.

Food was not quite what we were expecting. Several of the dishes were OK just not great. The steamed fish was also over cooked slightly and did not have much flavor. The wines by the glass were also ok and we expected a little more. We thoroughly enjoyed the fig pot de creme at the end.

Table is always a new and exciting adventure. There’s always something new and delicious on the menu. The service is excellent, the wine list is unique (and the help with the choice of wine is greatly appreciated), and the ambiance is wonderful. Can’t wait to go back!

Because the menu changes often, what I was hoping to order was no longer available. The selection they did offer was too limited. This was the first time I was ever at a restaurant where they didn't offer some kind of poultry. While the service was fantastic, I don't think we'll be back.

While the server, service and Ambience were all terrific, our bone in Steak was full of fat. Not the good kind of delicious fat. Fat that you could not cut through or chew. The small parts of the steak that were edible were delicious. There was a LOT of steak for the meal so if the steak was less fatty and more edible, it would have been a good price for what we got. But, the steak was not so, the $110 for two was not a good price for what we had. Sorry...

Visited here with a few girlfriends on Sunday night. We enjoyed the mushroom crab appetizer although it was small for the price. I got the wreck fish for my meal, and it was fresh - well prepared and tasty. Others got the squid ink pasta which was great and the fried chicken which was good but nothing special. Very quiet on Sunday night but have heard it’s more lively on weekend nights. Bar upstairs was cool and people were friendly :)

Wonderful Menu & Staff. Would not have known about this location if we didn’t take a wrong turn. Lucky us, we went in for drinks and apps after a night of eating. Had two apps and shared one main dish. Chicken Liver & Beef Heart were cooked to perfection. The Wreck Fish was seared perfectly and was amazing. Sauces and plating were on point. So much, that we returned the next night for the Bone-In Ribeye for two with sides. Wonderful experience, lots of reviews on drinks, but food is just as epic. Will definitely return. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Food was hit or miss. Some dishes were really good and others were disappointing. 3 of us ordered the same thing, got them at different times, and each looked different and tasted different. One was even cold and when we got it remade it was STILL not good. I think the food may have been forgivable if it wasn’t for the horrible attitude from the servers. From the VERY beginning he told us what he would NOT do for us, like splitting the check or helping us find the right drink. And when we told him one of the dishes was cold he just said, “Ok and....what do you want me to do?” We were there for a special occasion and I was horrified and so embarrassed.

I have lived here for 4 months and Table has become my go to restaurant. The constantly rotating fresh menu has me sold. Not sure what I am hungry for? They will always have something on the menu to intrigue me.

So many outstanding restaurants in Asheville that are farm to table! There was 10 of us so overall it was a great experience. Portions were smaller. 3 people at our table tried to order a burger and they only had 2 available .

I’m sorry to have to do this to table but my experience there was really very poor. First of all it’s unbearably hot and the air conditioning cannot accommodate the space or the body heat. The menu lacks basic staples I’m goes perhaps too far out on the limb trying to be unique. The seven or eight dishes we ordered were so so at best and for the price I would expect more from them.

The food was generally good, but we paid handsomely for it. It is a good place to eat, but not an excellent choice. I will go back, but it will not be a regular destination.

There were four of us: my wife, my son, his girlfriend, and me. My wife and I each had trout. The fish was very good, but the topping was just ok. That was not a disaster because the fish filled us up. My son had some other type of fish. I cannot recall what it was, but he said it was delicious. His girlfriend had something called crab spaghetti. She said it was good, but it looked pretty skimpy to me. She did not complain.

The bar is upstairs above the restaurant and it is excellent.
