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.

Great Breakfast Bar

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.

Stopped in with elderly mother for dinner after a long day of holiday shopping. We were the only table in the restaurant. Bread and wine arrived and were great & we placed our dinner order. Both ordered filet, the most expensive item on the menu. We sat and talked, next thing we know it had been 45 minutes! Waiter came... More

We were there with family and the first Morning Jay was our server. Fantastic!!! Super service. The food was good and the service made it better. We were... More

I wanted to have a nice salad and thought on short notice this place would offer a great one looking at the menu. I was wrong. The salad was wilted on the bottom and and covered with nice greens on top. Very little of anything else in the salad but greens. I didn't go back during my four day stay... More

Had dinner here the other night. Roux is located in the Hilton Hotel in Biltmore Park, and in our experience hotel restaurants are usually not very good, but we had no expectations going in, positive or negative. The restaurant is small, and on a Saturday night at 6 there were only a few patrons, so we were seated immediately. The... More

I think this restaurant at The Hilton Hotel is a great place to go for Breakfast. I am there every week. Omelettes cooked by the Omelette extraordinaire are delicious; he wears an actual name tag that reads that. Lovely staff, friendly service. Its a buffet, at least on the weekends. Great Belgian waffles, assortment of local cheese/meats, fresh fruit, oatmeal,... More
