    Ate here on a recent vacation to the area. The service was simply outstanding. Very attentive wait staff with wonderful suggestions. We tried a couple of the apps which were delicious. My girlfriend and I had the steak which was very flavorful, but a bit tough. Our friends had the trout and a pasta dish which they were very happy. Overall, we loved the restaurant and would definitely eat here again.

    Absolutely totally fine cuisine. We were in Asheville for a week and enjoyed the Market Place so much that we ate there twice. In fact we both had the crispy skin trout both times! But everything was incredibly well composed in flavors and also textures. The posset desert was amazing and so was the pavlova. Also very knowledgeable and friendly service. Highly, highly recommended.

    Seems the people working here are not happy to be there. They acted a bit stressed, frustrated, and somewhat confused. We were seated for a fixed menu, so maybe that had something to do with it.

    Totally overpriced and underwhelming!! We paid 40.00 for a dry, tasteless piece of chuck steak, mushrooms overcooked, onions oily crunchy canned strips zero sauce and overcooked! Apps overpriced and not worth eating. Drinks ok, severely overpriced. Only thing we enjoyed was the waiter. Don’t waste your money, Asheville has so many other restaurants not lucky enough to “pay” to get reviewed, that are worth of every penny. Ruined my husband’s special Birthday celebration!! Beyond disappointed.

    We had not been to this restaurant, although we come into Asheville fairly regularly. The food was really well done. The steak was perfectly prepared, the mussels were melt in your mouth good, truffle fries were loved by our teens, and the tagliatelle was fresh and excellent. No complaints and we will be back.

    My wife and I went for Valentine's day dinner. The pre-fixe menu was VERY expensive, so we had pretty high expectations. The "filet" my wife received was tough, stringy, and dry. Service was middling. When we received our check, we noticed an error in how the bill was calculated which they immediately remedied. Overall a massive disappointment. The dinner cost $250 and I could've gotten a comparable meal elsewhere in town for <$100.

    Wonderful attentive service by Christen set a wonderful tone for the evening. The carrot ginger soup was exquisite. The other appetizer was a wonderful combination of classically prepared scallops with a modern twist of savory spices and vegetables. The steak was prepared as ordered, the fries although nicely spiced were way over salted. The chocolate torte was delicious, the vanilla cheesecake was overly sweet for our taste.
