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!

Had small plates. Bone marrow -- bland, not enough flavor; pork dumplings, nothing unique but expensive; shiso sausage with fennel and halloumi was the best of the three. Flavors in the dishes weren't balanced, didn't complement, didn't quite work.

We had been on a food tour where the guide had suggested us try this place out. For tastes we had the chicken liver pate and fried cauliflower. Now we've all been to good, pricey restaurants but $10 for five pieces of fried cauliflower? No, thank you. The chicken liver pate was good and I would get that again. For appetizers, we ordered the steak tartare and Carolina yellowfin tuna. I can't not order steak tartare whenever I see it on the menu and this one was pretty good. Definitely worth ordering! The tuna was very fresh (only five pieces) but the pickled peach was overwhelming. It crushed the delicate taste of the raw tuna. Not a repeat. My cousin and I shared the trout which was served whole. It was a nice surprise and quite good. My husband had the pork crepinette, which he enjoyed. It was overall a good meal, although I doubt we would ever go back since Asheville has so many good restaurants to try.

The experience was magical. The atmosphere made us feel as if we had descended upon modern day Eden. The food was so fresh and seasonal; sensational! If I could have one last meal on this Earth, it would be this.

I am local and never write reviews but I am today because our meal was so deserving of praise. Simply extraordinary. This restaurant is a gem. We ordered a number of small plates and each dish wowed us with flavor— both from the fresh ingredients and chef’s craft. Highly recommend.

The creativity at Table always amazes me. They take care to curate some of the finest local ingredients and come up with some very special plates. This was my 5th meal there and I always find something new when I come back.

There is a distinct high-end vibe and the friendliness you'd expect from a staff of informed caring server's. You can tell that from the time you walk in that you're going to be treated well.

Word of advice if you go on Friday/Saturday night they may get hit with a bar rush around 9 pm or so for the cocktails and beer. It gets noisy around the bar so if that isn't your scene be wary of your time.

Fantastic for everything else.

The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great.

Started with perfectly prepared martinis. Requested blue stuffed olives and onions. They had neither, which was fine. Then on to the tuna crudo and mushroom brioche. The tuna was small, but outstanding, the mushroom appetizer was huge. We liked both appetizers, but sure wished the tuna @ $16 was larger. Shared the curry. They forgot the crab, but brought some to our table when we pointed out the missing crab in the curry dish. Also had a side of kale which was very good. The food was overall very good.

Wonderful apps, including deviled eggs and best pimento cheese we have ever tasted! The cauliflower with yogurt was delish as well. Wait staff on point, fried chicken with corn bread and peas and onions was amazing.

This was by far the worst dining experience we have ever had in Asheville. We had given Table a try several years ago for brunch and had a bad experience then but we decided to give it another try hoping dinner would be better. The food was horrific. The server didn’t notice when both women at the table changed dishes with our dates. I ordered the pork which I thought was a pork chop based on the description but ended up paying $30 for fatty pulled pork mush in some kind of casing. I just couldn’t get past the texture. The steak was no better. We ended up going to Posana afterwards because we were all still hungry. Also, there was no walkway for the restroom. Tables were so poorly placed towards the back of the restaurant that I overheard the man behind us complain that he couldn’t enjoy his meal because he had to move every time some one walked by. My date also jolted into our table due to the same issue, almost spilling all our drinks every time someone walked by. The server was inattentive. Overall none of us will return. There are so many other good food options in Asheville. I would skip Table.

Table's cuisine is consistently excellent. One of our faves, and we live here. Often, as in this meal, they push the envelope and have us eating something new. Delectables for this meal included spring pea and crab appetizer and pork crepinette. Creative wine selection adds to the experience.

Our party of 6 went for brunch. The food was nothing to write home about. It was fussy, almost pretentious, but not really that great. The servers seemed a bit overwhelmed. They were kind and attentive but our entrees all came out at different times (that could be a kitchen issue though). We were pretty disappointed and won’t be back.

We ordered the milk bread to start...absolutely delicious, and the Spaghetti Al Nero and Bavette Steak for entrees. Excellent choices...the flavors were exquisite!

Bone in Rib Eye Steak to share with Sides ? We're in. I knew my carnivorous husband would swoon when he saw the menu and I was not disappointed. You may think $100 for this dish is steep but when you taste the delicious sides that accompany, and cut into that ( at least 35 oz ? ) piece of rib eye, you will realize the value. One of the best tasting steaks we've had in quite some time. I grew up on a cattle farm in rural Minnesota and basic steaks at the grocery store just don't have flavor - so had given up eating much red meat. This steak took me back. So delicious. We also shared the milk bread and the polenta to start - so good. Our service was excellent from the moment we arrived - staff was definitely engaged in ensuring a great experience for their guests. The restaurant is cozy and comfortable, great wine and drink list. It was the perfect anniversary dinner and we thank you so much for your wonderful food and hospitality.
