About Table Asheville

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!

There were 11 of us with an 8:15 friday night reservation. We ended up being seated in the bar. Noise level as very high, food was good, service was excellent. Based on all this, I would give 3 1/2 stars. We would go back but would request being seated in the restaurant area and would probably go earlier in the evening.

Table’s location is convenient, the food was good, service excellent, but the prices are really too high! I probably won’t be back, strictly related to the menu prices. Ribeye steak for 2, with no sides is $99- that is outrageous! Sorry guys, I won’t be back.

Warm ambience and fun menu, with artfully conceived and presented food, but it was the cassoulet that won our hearts -- succulent and bursting with flavor! It is fun to preview the dishes as you walk by the busy cooks on your way to the dining room.

Ordered 32-oz ribeye steak (for 2) medium rare, came out bloody/rare, asked for it to be warmed to medium rare as requested. Came back inedible. Very poor cut of meat with significant amounts of thick gristle—chewed and chewed and couldn’t swallow. Hunted all over for better quality slice and could find none. Disgrace to charge $99 for one of the worst steaks I have ever attempted to eat. Server removed two appetizers from the bill and apologized but meal was ruined. Too bad—nice ambience, great location and interesting menu/wine list, and server was mostly very helpful and attentive.

Service was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. My food was very tasty, but a bit overseasoned. Oddly enough, I felt my pork crepinette was more oily than the roasted bone marrow.

I needed a quiet dining experience for my elderly Mother. OpenTable had this restaurant #1 on the list using their filters in the desktop UI. It's not quiet, nor a good place to take your elderly Mom with hearing challenges. Actually, I wouldn't take a date there and my girlfriend was with me. Secondly, the service is pretentious. Ok so good for you, there is a whole trout on the menu. But really? Can't a customer ask for the head to be removed before it comes to the table? How dare I? Snooty. It's not that great of a place. Come down a couple of notches and have some fun. There's way too much energy in this place to be that serious.

Mixed experience! We were a family group of 7. Service was quite good, but food was uneven. Several of us had a lamb ragu that was quite good, but others found their pork to be overwhelmed by beets. The hanger steak came out quite red for medium-well & was overly salted, but the local trout was excellent. So not an unequivocal recommendation.

Its eclectic menu raised expectations, only to exceed them with exceptional service and food. An example - the roasted bone marrow was to die for. While clearly where you would want to go for a special occasion, it would serve well for a business or casual lunch. Close to the Civic Center, hotels and shopping, its location puts it at the center of downtown Asheville; its excellence, at the center of the downtown restaurant scene.

Wonderful dinner at Table! The upstairs bar was fun, and the entire staff were helpful and friendly. We made a wine selection on tasting several unopened bottles, a feature that I seriously wish other restaurants would adopt, at least for lower-end priced wines (less then $60) Charred Octopus and grilled chicory salad, then a huge steak platter for two. Divine! We will be back.

Wonderful experience as always in terms of food and service. Unfortunately a noisy, buzzed, vulgar bachelor party descended on the center of the space mid way through the meal with my date. I don't know where those a$$ clowns were visiting from but Table is a fine establishment and everyone else in there does not need to hear some middle aged over the hill with a gut bro (they looked to ranger from 35 to 45) drop the F bomb or say "Nice P&$$y" to the Bachelorette party at the table behind them that was, by the way not loud or obnoxious and had little cat ear hair bands on, but dressed quite nicely. At any rate, I guess what I want to say is if you are a large group doing some sort of celebration at table, sure, do it, but try to show up somewhat sober and save all the annoying behavior for Lexington Avenue Brewing or Packs Tavern. OR just go to vegas or something.

Service kind of killed it for us, although the food was nicely prepared. Server was not friendly, welcoming or helpful on the menu. She made us feel uncomfortable so we ended up just kind of rushing to get out of there. 3 trigger fish entrees and a trout. The trout is not deboned nor will they debone it for you, another service error in my opinion. The Triggerfish was really nice and had a great sauce. We couldnt justify $50+ on an average bottle of wine so we ordered by the glass. I wanted to love it but I won't be back.

We arrived on time at 7pm, and were seated. We ordered and received drinks , and in about 10-12 minutes we were ready to order, but our waitress did not come. She was back and forth by our table numerous times but did not acknowledge us and we never really caught her eye.

After about 30 min we left - walked to another nearby Restuarant, ordered and received our food all in under the nearly 30 minutes we waited at Table.

This is the reason for the poor rating. I would say that Restaurants that have high standards for their offerings also need to have high standards for customer service.

We made a reservation weeks in advance for our Asheville trip after this game highly recommended—we were placed at a small table near the bathroom in the corner with two other small tables on either side so waiters kept crawling all over and around us to get to the other tables. Very overpriced meal for the quality of food and experience that we had.

We were more than a few minutes late on a busy night, but they had held our table for us and sat us promptly... so a big thank you for that. Our waiter was spot on for service and knew the menu well with helpful recommendations. I like nearly everything, but my wife who has a much more discerning palate was also satisfied with her meal.

Fish in lovely broth which we sopped up with the excellent bread. The baked ricotta dessert would have been five stars had it not been for the unripe pear placed in the middle. Hard to eat and unnecessary.

Thought the entry and decor do not stand out among Asheville's many gems, I would recommend this restaurant as much as many of its peers. The menu was short and the unusual mix of flavors represented made choosing a safe entree challenging, yet all the seated skeptics were pleasantly surprised no matter what they had chosen, from the mundane hamburger to the pomegranate ice cream in the autumn soup.

Had an early-ish réservation so it was quiet when we arrived. It quickly became busy. I understand why. The food is excellent and original. We shared everything and did not feel like anyone had an issue with that. The butternut squash soup was savory and delicious. The use of za’atar and an almond milk ice cream garnish on top of it were perfect. The lamb ragout was fabulous and we finished with a divine flourless chocolate cake. Our server, Christine was attentive and friendly. In all, a way needful evening. We will return!
