Description: Discover Roux and you just may become addicted. Our patrons tell us...
Discover Roux and you just may become addicted. Our patrons tell us they’re mad about Roux. We knew when we opened we were creating something special, but our patron’s love of Roux is our best affirmation. Our Executive Chef Randy Dunn has created an innovative menu incorporating small plates and comfort food finished with a creative twist. Roux fuses southern comfort with modern sophistication, dishes inspired by our Chef’s grandmother’s kitchen then spiced with locally farmed ingredients that are all Asheville. Our menu features small plates that allow sharing as well as more traditional large plates. A diverse wine list, full service bar and select desserts created in the Roux kitchen complete your experience. At Roux you’ll also enjoy the best service and an inviting atmosphere. Join us for breakfast, lunch and dinner and become mad about Roux.

Fresh salads at lunch

Just this week met a friend for lunch at Roux. While we caught up, we shared an appetizer, the fries with truffle oil. They arrived a bit limp and not very flavorful. Still, they were a fun indulgence for two women sticking to salads for the main course. Our salads were very good - the... read more

We often stay at the Asheville Hilton our way to Florida. The hotel is the best but the breakfast can't be beat. Local cheeses, fruits... omelettes made to order... fresh muffins... all served by an excellent staff.

Being "locals" we made reservations through Open Table for 11:00 on Father's Day. We were greeted and seated promptly which is a necessity when you have two ladies in their eighties with you. Our server, Safra, was awesome! Although tempted by the buffet we all chose to order from the menu. My Spinach and Portobello Eggs Benedict was heavenly. My... More

We were staying at the Hilton (the restaurant is located inside) and had both dinner and breakfast at the hotel. We decided that we would dine at the hotel for dinner rather than eat somewhere in Biltmore Park due to time constraints. The atmosphere is very nice and the relatively new. The waiter that we had was somewhat unsure of... More

A friend lives in a condo a block away and met at Roux for breakfast. The omelet was good, but expensive for what it was. I don't know if the staff was a bit slow or if the kitchen was. Parking was in an adjacent deck and I'm not comfortable in parking decks. I learned that valet service was available.

We went for Easter Brunch. The staff was very organized and we did not have to wait for seating. Jay was our server. He was excellent and very personable with a sense of humor. Food was outstanding. Service equally outstanding. The only thing we could find was cantaloupe was a bit tart. The cost for brunch at Easter was 26.50... More

This place has a great breakfast bar...made to order omelets, made from scratch biscuits, and wonderful waffles. The location inside the Hilton is great for any meeting.

We had the breakfast buffet... We loved it, but $36 for 2 people for breakfast was a bit much. It was a busy morning, and the service was a tad slow, but in all, wasn't bad.
