Go to Curate for a great night out for Tapas and Sangria. We worked through many Tapas and a pitcher of sangria. Quite tasty and enjoyable. The only Tapas that was average was the asparagus but the many others were top notch. A fun experience to try many dishes, drink a little wine and have fun. Even vegetarians can get... More

Had a nice lunch here on a rainy Spring day on our first trip to Asheville. This was recommended to us by a nearby restaurant on a day our first choice was closed. Tapas makes a great light lunch and every small plate we had was excellent.....a salad with potatoes and hard boiled egg, Iberico lardo (this was a terrific... More

Small delisios plates - taste like tapas in Madrid! Thank you again for another lovely lunch in Asheville! We came with three kids - and they could all behave because of the tasty food. We will come back!

I'm a local and have enjoyed numerous meals at Curate, including hosting my birthday dinner here, which they made incredibly special. While I often have some of the same dishes when I return, I always try something new. I have yet to try something that I didn't absolutely love. From the amazing food, to the impeccable service, it just doesn't... More

I am originally from Barcelona, Spain, so I know well tapas and Spanish food. We live in Florida, however we are in the process of building a mountain cabin in Asheville after we felt in love with the city in part because of the amazing restaurants. One of the main reasons we love Asheville so much is because of Curate... More

It's always nice not to have to make a decision on a big menu, but rather get to choose a little of it all! Our server was wonderful, the restaurant was very lively, and the food was delicious! It is a little out of our price range, so it makes a nice every once in a while restaurant option.

The tapas were delicious, some I liked more than others, the wild mushroom sauté was devine but the cost adds up quickly. I did enjoy the tapas but find the servings tiny for the price and the bill adds up quickly, so just keep that in mind.
