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.

Sharing is a must. Order a variety of small plates and enjoy the amazing tapas. Don't be afraid to be a novice and ask the server for suggestions. They won't steer your wrong. But then again, it's hard to go wrong since virtually every selection is a taste treat.

A very popular restaurant since it opened a couple of years ago. Some consider it one of Asheville's best. But I think it's a little overrated and overpriced. It's always crowded and noisy and you might have to wait awhile to get a table.

Not very familiar with Tapas Dining so we gave Curate a try. Sat at the Bar and it was fun to watch the creative dishes being prepared. Enjoyed everything we ordered. Food is very good. Although our server was very informative and helped us first timers to make selections, I was surprised he never shared the specials of the night.... More

Every single plate we had was delicious. We had six plates of pure culinary perfection. Knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff. Don't miss it.

Absolutely perfect Spanish-style tapas. Can't recommend this enough. The artisan cocktails are not to be missed as well!

It's very good. Cured ham and cheese was excellent. Lamb skewers were outstanding. But, save room for the raspberry sorbet and chocolate mousse. The most intense raspberry flavor I have had. Paired with the chocolate, it was just unforgettable. While not cheap, it was definitely worth it. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Ate here during the day versus evening, for the first time. Actually enjoy the ambiance better during the day...very European feel with the sun up...LOVE. The food is simply beyond description...always. The white asparagus? The lamb skewers? The eggplant? There is NOT a bad dish served in this lovely restaurant. Portions are perfect. Sit at the bar...it's worth it.
