Always Top Notch

Cannot wait to eat at this restaurant which will be changing its address shortly --remaining in Black Mountain, NC.

A Johnson and Wales Chef who knows his stuff. Everything prepared in true gourmet tradition. I suggest looking a the the Chalk Board for daily specials - they are always terrific. If you crave a steak, a big buttered Filet Mignon is the ticket. Best restaurant in Black Mountain.

We had a great flounder stuffed with crabmeat. The service was friendly and good. We found it on trip advisor and enjoyed our evening.

Celebrated my guy's birthday here, had the soft shelled crab special and he had the redfish. We LOVED it! Our waiter, Eric, was extremely helpful with suggestions and answered all of our questions with absolute ease. This is a very popular restaurant so reservations are a MUST! They're always packed! Highly recommend for an adult evening out. We will definitely... More

Never judge a book by its cover! This restaurant from the outside looks like an old strip center that has fallen on bad times but the restaurant inside is so unique and excellent. Everything we tried was fantastic. Can't wait to go back next time we are in Asheville area.

I was more than pleasantly surprised on how good the food was at Que Sera. The service was excellent as well. The menu is scrumptious and daily specials are wonderful as well. They were very accommodating on my dietary restrictions. The street view /curb appeal had me going by it for afew weeks but after checking them out online, I... More

My family just ate here once again and were pleased once again. I had the squash blossoms stuffed with cheese for an appetizer and they were a treat. They were drizzled with a sweet and pungent pepper jelly.....just incredible. This place looks very unassuming but do not let that fool you....this is a must stop place if you want a... More

I have passed by this unassuming restaurant for years without stopping. Tonight was a blessing; my wife and I had dinner there. With a cabin in the area, we are usually content providing for ourselves but that has now changed! The menu choices are exciting and our dinners were fantastic (well seasoned, fresh, flavorful and extremely creative). The staff was... More

Every time my wife & I visit the Asheville/Black Mountain area we eat at Que Sera. This small (14-16 tables) restaurant always delivers a great meal. They have a fixed menu but always have 3 -4 specials. Service is great. The owners always come around to make sure everything is O.K. You will love this place.

Que Sera is one of the only places in town for fine dining. The chef is friendly and comes out of speak to the customers. The food is nice, especially the rockfish dishes. The ambiance is intimate, and it's nice to sit outside if the weather is nice.
