Great food in small amounts; not a place for large appetites unless you want to fill up on bread, which you might because it is also very good. The setting is beautiful, perhaps the best view of any western North Carolina restaurant not located on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The price makes it a special occasion only option for us and we view it as an experience not just a meal. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Western NC's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
I come from New Orleans where the food is wonderful and restaurants endless. Newman’s at the Orchard Inn was, hands down, perhaps the best meal my husband and I have had ever, period. The service and ambiance were exquisite, perhaps near perfect. Thank you, Mark and Maryann MoreOpenTable Diner -

Some of the area chefs in Asheville have nicknamed their town "Foodtopia" because of the area's well-known creative passion for great cuisine. Culinary experts throughout the entire western portion of North Carolina appear to have adopted this sentiment. Elegant fine dining establishments can be found alongside mid-priced luncheonettes. You can find a creative local deli for sandwiches, soups, and salads. Your hotel's dining area may turn out to be a five-star restaurant. Whether you're in Asheville or another Western North Carolina hub, there is no shortage of high-quality food choices. European flavors are popular; German schnitzel with spaetzle shows up on menus around town. Mexican fare is another plentiful option, and Caribbean spices have found a place in the Asheville area too. Many local menus provide vegetarian and vegan choices as well as gluten-free options.
