    We have lived in Asheville for the last couple of years, but have never been to Table. Our experience last night made us wonder, why did we wait so long to come here? The food was absolutely delicious. Love the small plates. We had the meatballs served in a local squash, that could’ve been a meal in itself.. all squash. We also had the broccoli which was delicious and the Japanese eggplant - all amazing. We did order the chicken, which was good, but this evening the small plates were the standout. Our dining companion ordered the steak tartar and the shrimp toast which he said were OMG delicious. Can’t wait to come back again soon to try more things on the menu!

    The experience from entering the restaurant until we left was amazing. The hostess was extremely welcoming and are our waiter Matt so knowledgeable and accommodating. He had this manner that was genuine. We started with Heidi’s bread (my namesake) and then had the gem salad which so light and dressing added to lightness of dish which I was looking for. For main course for my first time ever had trigger fish. Just a bowl of many flavors and textures. Just brilliant.

    Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu items, specials, food sources, and wine. We had several small plates and all were flavorful and true to description. Stand outs; the bread, steak tartare, cappacola (special) meatballs, rabbit cavetelli, and mushrooms. Wish we lived closer and could enjoy this spot regularly!

    Always a good meal at Table. Staff and service is exceptional. Had their heirloom tomato salad on this last visit and it was delicious. In addition, my wife had the smoked trout salad and this was also exceptional. In fairness, the trout was forgotten somehow for which the waitress apologized emphatically. They took it off our bill at our protest as the salad was still exceptional without the trout. This was a tribute to how the restaurant functions in looking out for their customers.

    Such a perfect evening for al fresco dining. Stewart our waiter was very attentive and his recommendations were spot on, which resulted in the most amazing combinations. We ordered 3 apps and one small pasta and all were fabulous. Shrimp toast was the surprise- shrimp salad on a croissant toast. Steak tartar came on a shiso leaf wrap. Mushroom ragout on a corn cake. Lastly housemade pasta with tender braised rabbit. We started with two cocktails based on Stewart's recommendation, and then enjoyed a wine. Perfect evening!

    Pricey, and yet the food was not exceptional. Romano and polebeans so undercooked as to be essentially raw. A bit tough for our tastes. Waiter was helpful in explaining menu but overbearing and presumptuous when communicating with us otherwise. The space was too noisy for a pleasant dining experience. No plates were given to us on which to divide each new course between us. We had to use the same tiny bread plates for each of the first 3 courses. The chocolate boudini was served in a half pint canning jar, two spoons sticking out the top, no saucer underneath on which to place our spoons between bites. Upon entering the restaurant, one has a direct view into the dishwashing station in the kitchen. Not what one would expect for a high priced eatery.

    Coming to the Table is always our favorite in Asheville. Food, service, everything is always on point and a little bit extra. Getting to Asheville is a 4 hour drive for us, so when staying the weekend we plan in advance to get a seat at Table. Never a disappointment, always unique.

    We ordered several dishes, and everything we had was fantastic. My favorite was the pasta dish with the foraged mushrooms (can't remember what it was called now). Also, it seems silly to say the fries were amazing in the context of all of the great food we had, but the fries were amazing.
