    It was amazing how many servers stopped by our table just to check on us. Our main server, Kareem, was super, but the support from the rest of the team was outstanding. Dessert was wonderful. Pasta with rabbit sauce was excellent.

    The roasted chicken and pasta with rabbit were amazing. Did not disappoint. The bread in individual small loaf was a nice touch. I read reviews before deciding what and where to eat. Definitely a must for discerning individuals. Well done!

    The food was excellent, my friend and I split 3 small plates and the bread. The burrata dish was my favorite. Every dish had unique and wonderful flavors. For 2 people with an appetite, 3 small plates might be too light, just fyi. The only negative was the ambience. Very noisy and very crammed. When I think of unique chef experiences at this price level, I want an enjoyable and comfortable experience where I can enjoy conversation with friends. It was so noisy that we could hardly hear each other. And also rows of tables were jammed so close that a party next to us joked about it being like a big family dinner. I would return for food, but not in the winter when flu and covid are risks to be considered when jammed together with strangers. I would have given a higher rating except for the ambience. It wasn’t “energetic” noise, it was annoying noise.

    The service was excellent, friendly and the food was served promptly. Its a very small restaurant so the tables are quite close together. Not ideal for an intimate “date night” but not so loud we could not hear each other. I was a little put off by the price of a salad which consisted of lettuce and salad dressing only. Our meal which the waiter said was a fan favorite was quite good (pasta with duck) but very spicy. I wish I had known that as I would have ordered something different. My husband loved it (he likes spicy). The rum pudding with caramel and a spoonful of ice cream was not good. My husband ate it but he said only because he paid for it. I tasted it twice and put my spoon down. I think this is a locals restaurant who have discovered menu items they love and find value in. I’m glad we went but probably will not return given the many other options in town.

    Table is a nice venue in a good location. My waiter was Stuart. He made excellent recommendations & was very professional as a server. I thought the cocktails were very unique & I found the prices at Table to be very reasonable. I recommend this venue if you’re looking for a good farm to table restaurant.

    Table is a crown jewel dining experience in downtown Asheville! The atmosphere, decor and wonderful menu provided us a New York dining experience in North Carolina. The food was excellent, the staff welcoming and very knowledgeable. We will definitely dine at Table again in our visits to Asheville! And, if you like trout, you have to try the sunburst trout for 2, it was outstanding! Rick W

    Very tasty dishes. Each with unique sauces & dressings that are savoy and satisfying. The buratta app might need to be adjusted for the size of the dinner party. I t can be quartered for a party of 4, but a party of 5 or more? It should really be 2 burattas in the app. Wonderful wine selection!

    My wife and I ate here for our anniversary so it was a bit of an event for us as we typically don’t eat high-priced meals. With our reservation we got sat immediately. That has been a struggle in the past with a couple restaurants in Asheville. The staff was somehow both very professional and casual. The food was pricey but it’s all from an upscale menu so that was expected. Despite the price, the food was dope. Between my wife and I, we had Heidi’s Bread as an app, Rigatoni and Apple Brandy Butcher’s Steak and Potatoes as entrees, and the Appalachian Sour and Previously, On Lost as cocktails. What made all this food and drink such a knockout is simply the taste. The flavors were punchy and full. They did not do the fancy food thing where the portions are small and the food was “presentation over quality”. It looked fantastic and tasted thusly. Overall, very happy with experience and plan to stop by for the next special occasion.
