Yum!

This local gem was a few blocks from our Airbnb in the Montford section of Asheville. We were seated right away by the friendly and helpful staff, although the restaurant looked very busy. The menu is very eclectic, with veggie, vegan, seafood and gluten free options. Portions were large and... read more

And the flies were inside, not at one of the four outside dining tables. Ordered their signature dish, Grilled Jerk Chicken (good) on basmati rice (bland), side salad with a salad dressing (unmemorable) and an iced green tea with mint (strange). My wife got the Livity salad with tofu and an orange balsamic dressing (also unmemorable). Noise level from the... More

I recently ate at Nine Mile for lunch. It was really good. Since I had never been there, I looked at the reviews on Trip Advisor first. While most reviews were positive,there were negative comments about slow service and bland food. The service was a little slow but that was not a problem for me. The staff with whom I... More

i've eaten here three times in the last year, while visiting asheville for work and to visit friends. the food is good, and the prices reasonable. the portions very generous. however, the service is mediocre and the worst is how slow the kitchen is. i'm talking painfully, watch the grass grow or paint dry slow. an hour is about how...

Started out with the mango salsa. It was chunky umami. My husband had the Concrete Jungle, which had perfectly cooked mussels and scallops, and no sand! I had a coconut curry shrimp dish (forgot the name, had the number 12 in it) and the fish was cooked perfectly in my dish as well. Both dinners were well prepared and had... More

Had dinner here with my husband and was extremely impressed with the service and the food. We had a little bit of a wait but I can see why, the food was worth the wait!!

My favorite restaurant in Asheville. The food is creative Jamaican, upscale. The ambiance is more casual. Think Rasta Chefs. If you are a foodie, you will appreciate this place.

We had great service, got seated immediately, and ended up sharing our dinners as we could not decide which dish was more divine!
