BEST cocktails in Asheville...I dare you to try the Spanish martini! I am a BIG foodie and travel all over the world to visit different chefs and I think I could just curl up and eat here the rest of my life.

We go once or twice a month. It is divine. We are foodies and don't like to spend money on food unless it's really good. This does not disappoint. Favorites: setas, eggplant with honey, patatas bravas, esparagus blanco, lamb skewers, white sangria, and really....everything. Hard to get reservations so plan ahead or go at an off time like 3:30pm for... More

First thing I have to mention is that I'm from a very small town in Spain, so trying "Spanish food" in an other country is not my thing, because I'm usually disappointed. But since Cúrate was listed as the best restaurant in Asheville, I had to try it and also because of my boyfriend is american, so I wanted to... More

We have been to Curate several times and they were all delicious! We love the bocadillo catalan and sangria pitchers! Service has always been good on our visits. Dining space is a bit cramped but the food makes it well worth it!

Curaté is a tapas restaurant in downtown Asheville. The chef Katie Button, is an award winning chef. In my visiting nephew's words, his next trip to Asheville will revolve around being certain to have reservations at Curaté. The best system is to get a lot and share. Do not miss the jamon medley, sourced from different breeds, fed special diets.... More

We decide to stop for lunch and enjoy some tapas and wine. We share few items from the menu as follows: Gambas al ajillo, shrimp in a garlic broth with bread for dipping. Very fresh and tasty. Pulpo a la Gallega, sliced Galicia style octopus with olive oil, paprika, sea salt and potatoes puree. For me was the best dish!... More

I visited Curate with some friends tonight and it was absolutely delicious. We ordered about eight plates of food and shared everything and there was not one thing about the meal that wasn't outstanding. Cider Apple foam cocktail was perfect. Service was great - really outgoing, knowledgeable server (wish I could remember her name). If you visit here make sure... More

We stopped in on a Tuesday night with no reservations and gladly waited an hour for seats. The choice of small plates is a tad overwhelming but the menu helpfully sorts things out a bit. The waitstaff is also a great help. Food was excellent and I'd say on a par with tapas we had in Spain. Noisy and fun.... More

This place is never disappointing. Another great meal. Can't wait till summer time, when they will bring back amazing gazpacho soup. Well worth the $. Did you make your reservation yet? :)
