Went to Vue 1913 to celebrate our anniversary, and we were given a table with a wonderful view of the mountains. The service was impeccable; everyone from the person who seated us, to our waitress and her assistant, was friendly, professional, and attentive. The menu is imaginative, with half devoted to vegetarian dishes. We split the artisanal cheeses and the sorghum and blueberry salad. For our entrees, my husband had the elk tenderloin, and I chose the lobster and grits. All were well-prepared and delicious. As a nice finishing touch, our waitress brought a red rose, along with chocolate hazelnut truffles and an edible anniversary "card" of dark chocolate. I would definitely recommend Vue 1913 for a special occasion.
My wife and I highly value creativity and distinctiveness in restaurants. If you want standard American faire with a small degree of distinctiveness, this is great. If your taste range is a little more conservative and a little less adventurous, then this is great. If you are unconcerned about cost, this is great. But it is a high priced meal that is definitely of good quality but only somewhat original. There are numerous restaurants in Asheville which cost considerably less but whose meals can be genuinely memorable for more creative and adventurous eaters. Our costs for this meal were about $65 per person, and it was a "good" meal, but the night before, we went to a restaurant in Asheville and paid about $45 per person and it was highly memorable and distinctive.
Very small food portions for the prices and left us still hungry after dinner, but overall enjoyed our experience!
Dan our waiter was outstanding! The food and wine were superb
Chose Vue 1913 for fiftieth wedding anniversary and was disappointed. Small portions can be expected but male salad was a let down and the scallops with gnocchis was mediocre at best. My wife had lamb and left the majority of it as it was mostly fat. Her eggplant appetizer was good. We each had two mixed drinks-nothing special. Total bill, including $15 valet parking for perhaps an hour was $250. Overall disappointment and will return to Ruth's Chris for other special occasions.
Thank you for joining us for this special occasion, and may we congratulate you both on 50 happy years of marriage. We have shared your comments with the Executive Chef and apologize that the food was not to your liking. Should you choose to dine with us again, the menu at Vue 1913 does change seasonally, and we hope you will one day return for a meal more appealing to your palates.
Greeted by s very friendly ldy.
The meals were Amazing. Our waitress Sarah was exceptional, very friendly and helpful. My family and I were on vacation in Asheville seeing Vue1913 had a 4star rating in AAA tour book we had to try it , was well worth the price for the whole experience
With so many fine dining establishments in Asheville, why go here? You receive terrible value for your dollar/ultra small portions. Great views, Craftsman furnishings, and comfortable seating do not overcome the house's shortcomings since going corporate. We won't return.
Thank you for your feedback. We will share your comments with the Food & Beverage management team.
Of course first, this restaurant is located in arguably the historic and most beautiful building in North Carolina. The view from our window table gave us opportunity after opportunity to look at the Asheville skyline and the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains and the sunset. The menu was extensive and explained well, the food was beyond good and the server attentive, courteous and knowledgeable. Excellent all around!
STARTER WAS THE CHEESE PLATE. LARGEST CHEESE WAS VERY, VERY HOT. OUR SERVER SHOULD OF WARNED US BEFORE WE ORDERED. AT $24 IT WAS NOT VALUE FOR THE MONEY AS WE COULD NOT EAT THE VERY HOT CHEESE. MY WIFE AND I HAD THE BASS ($48 EACH). PORTIONS WERE NOT GENEROUS BUT THE FISH WAS COOKED TO PERFECTION. THE RISOTTO WAS ALSO EXCELLENT. CREME BRULEE WAS ALSO EXCELLENT ($10). WE BOTH HAD 1 GLASS OF WINE. TOTAL WITH TIP $200. NICE EVENING BUT NOT VALUE FOR THE MONEY.
Beautiful view at the Grove Park Inn! Perfect spot for an awesome dinner with friends. We had great service and the food was phenomenal.
Great dinner at Vue 1913. Staff was very attentive and the meal was impeccable. Very creative chef. We had dumplings for appetizer, radish salad, Chilean bass, and Adirondack bowl. All choices were inventive and wonderful. Pricey but worth it!
Not impressed with the price and quality. My pasta dish gnocchi dish was just ok and dripping in butter. Favorite part was the bread and great views. Lamb was supposed to be cooked medium and was extremely rare even though my husband explained that he didn't want it rare or bright pink. Best part was the view.
A date after a 42 year gap and Vue913 was memorable for the food on a very memorable evening overall. Many thanks. Long story on that gap but maybe another time
The food was just OK considering the high prices. The serving staff were friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was pleasant. The drinks were a short pour. Overall disappointing evening considering we dined there a year ago when prices for the meal were a good value. Service a year ago was still very good.
We have gone here in the past but decided that this would be our last visit. Simply put, we have had much better meals for less money—and we are not averse to dining at some pretty pricey places. Compared to other restaurants we've been to, the service and quality simply doesn't match up.
One or two examples might suffice:
* The temperature was all wrong in the lamb dish, necessitating a hasty do-over, which threw off the balance of the entire meal because one spouse was left eating while the other twiddled her thumbs.
* The temperature of the foie gras should have been warmer.
* The temperature of the mashed potatoes with the filet mignon dish was also bad, and the flavor boring.
We were astonished that after the entree had to be sent back that they didn't comp a single thing or offer to comp dessert. Total tab for two was near $500, which was high for a resort of this kind. Again, we have stayed at similar resorts and had better meals under $250. This was not worth twice the money. Won't return.
Thank you for being a patron of the resort, and we genuinely apologize that your meal did not meet expectations. We have shared your comments with the Executive Chef and hope we have not lost you as a loyal customer.
We live locally and love visiting on a regular basis. The food and service are impeccable! We usually begin our evening in the Presidential Lounge with Brad as our superb mixologist and move to Vue 1913 for fabulous food and wine. Karen has been our server on several occasions and she is always at the top of her game!
Went for 4th of July, ambiance is lovely!
This place is ridiculous for the amount of money they charge for the food. It is not creative, nor well-executed. We couldn't even get a steak cooked to the proper temperature. The food was just very bland and unimaginitive, which is unacceptable for the final bill you'll receive. Do yourself a favor and visit the lodge for a cocktail and the view, then go to downtown Asheville where there are several James Beard-level restaurants all over the city.
Thank you for your feedback. We apologize that the food was not to your liking. Should you choose to dine with us again, we have shared your comments with the Executive Chef and look forward to the opportunity of creating a meal more pleasing to your palate.
My boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary and had a great experience. The service was perfect, the food was amazing and the view of the mountains was even better. I suggest trying the braised short rib, it was to die for!
Much improved since 2018 visit and pleased that we gave Vue 1913 another chance.
The staff was wonderful! The view was spectacular! The food was delicious!
One of several restaurants in the historic Grove Park Inn, Vue 1913 offers a continental-style dining experience. It provides wonderful vistas of downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge. Our server, Ben, gave us detailed explanations of all the menu items and engaged us in witty conversation while offering guidance on what to order. The wine list, while not as extensive as we had expected, gave a variety of choices suitable for any selection of appetizers, salads, and entrees. It's not cheap, but it's well worth the money we spent to enjoy a memorable dining experience.
Absolutely incredible dinner. Food was perfectly prepared and presented. Great wine list. Kim was an excellent waitress! Would highly recommend.
Cheri our server was fantastic! She recommended a vegetarian dish for me that was incredible! Morels in a yummy sauce with potatoes. Delish!
The service was outstanding! The food was equally amazing. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and they spoiled us with complimentary champagne, chocolates and a red rose. Just lovely. And the final amazing moment....the sunset view over the mountains....great evening!!
My wife has significant allergies, and the chef met with us in person to accommodate and modify the menu to meet her needs. Outstanding service!
For a restaurant with extremely expensive food (there is a $95 filet mignon on the menu), I felt that the service and ambiance didn't really live up to the hype. First, we were seated at a table not at the window - that part is okay, but the tables that aren't at windows are really in a black hole. Second, our service was extremely slow. Third, when I ordered an extremely dry and extremely cold martini I received one which was neither. Fourth, they were out of the wine that I ordered, and when we agreed on a replacement and it was opened, the waitress refused to leave the cork on the table, even though I told her that I would be needing it so I could take the bottle with me. Result: a different cork was placed in my bottle. (This seems to be a problem for the Grove Park Inn - the next night at Blue Ridge, when I ordered a bottle with a screw cap, that was apparently thrown away, and the bottle had to be corked - just leave it on the table, please!) The food was very good - but with the service missteps, it just wasn't worth the price. I thought this would be the highlight of our stay, but frankly, dinner at Edison the night before was a better experience.
Thank you for sharing. This is not the guest experience we aim to deliver and apologize for the lack of promptness and poor presentation of the wine corks. The General Manager of Vue 1913 has addressed your concerns with the server in question, and this will not be an issue moving forward. We hope you will give us the opportunity to show you the true standard of hospitality for which we are known sometime in the future.
KIM WAS SIMPLY AWESOME. WHAT A VERY NICE HUMAN BEING. MADE OUR DINNER AND STAY ENJOYABLE. WOULD COME THERE AGAIN!!! FOOD WAS GREAT!!!
Ben was an excellent server and made our dining experience really fun.
We went for my wife's birthday and they made it special. The service and food are exceptional; we had the smoked rib, boiled peanut hummus, radish salad and the filet mignon. The bottle of Jordan Cabernet complimented all of the foods. Of course the view is one of the best.
Wonderful restaurant! Great friendly knowledgeable staff!
Great, enjoyable meal! The food, service and surroundings were wonderful. We would recommend Vue for any occasion.
The food, service, and view were great! We had the lamb and sea bass and both were as good as we have ever had. The view of the mountains and Asheville's skyline were spectacular and added to the ambiance.
Excellent meal and excellent service. Highly recommend it
The view was awesome at The Vue. Our server, Amy, was informative, friendly, and responsive to our requests. The food was delicious. It was a perfect spot to celebrate 15 years of marriage bliss.
My wife and I were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary at the Grove Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at the hotel and the dinner we had at the Vue 1913 was exquisite and delightful. The menu offering met expectations, portions satisfying and the service made the night pleasant. I had the filet with scallops and my wife selected the sea bass. Excellent savory flavors. Our desert selection included the crème brulee and the Vue surprised us with white chocolate truffles and a congratulations note made of dark chocolate. Both were masterfully prepared and left us talking about the next time we would visit. Thank you Vue 1993 for the great experience!
