We were told that we must experience Curate. Dinner reservations were booked for a week ahead so we opted for lunch. My wife and I enjoyed tasting a variety of cheese, ham, lamb, and shrimp. Add one vegetable, tea, and a tip; and it cost us $60 for lunch. Never again for us, we will go for two good lunches... More

I visited with a group of friends on a long weekend and Curate lived up to the hype - and more! Excellent chef - the attention to detail, the precision, and most importantly, the flavors, were terrific. Enjoyed the wine list is and the recommendations from our server were spot-on with our order. Fun atmosphere and a very lively place... More

Decided to take a chance on getting in for a late lunch without reservations. It was not too busy, so we were able to get in right away. The server was wonderful and everything came out with perfect timing. As it was a very chilly day we started with two cafe con leche. Excellent! First we had the tabla de... More

We enjoyed our early Sunday night Dinner at Curate (pronounced - "Coo Rah Tay"). As we had plans for later in the evening, we opted for a 6pm reservation at this establishment. When we arrived, 15 minutes early, we were greeted by a gracious hostess, who informed us that our table was just finishing and that we should definitely be... More

We decided to leave the comfort of the Inn at Biltmore and ventured into the city for dinner - and boy were we glad we did! Take your time and pick as many as you can handle - remember you don't have to eat everything. We had Sangria and Olives as we tried to digest the huge menu. In the... More

We went to Curate for an early dinner and were pleased by the variety of tapas. They were all delicious! We had an orange cranberry bread pudding for dessert, which was a wonderful way to end our meal. We'll be back!

This was our second time to Curate... with the same waiter and table we had almost 3 years ago. Incredible drinks, food and service. Get a reservation early.

We (party of 5) had dinner with reservations and had to wait 45 min for our table. Not a problem; they seated us at the bar where we began our fabulous meal, sharing with each other and even a couple we did not know. It's such a friendly and festive atmosphere, and the staff were very nice and very apologetic.... More

What a fun and flavorful night! You MUST have reservations since it's so popular. The waiter was informative and attentive and the food was outstanding. I went with my 3 sisters and we shared 8 tapas plates and left filling full, but not stuffed. Lively and energetic, fun atmosphere. This was my favorite meal during this trip to Asheville. (And...
