Wow!

Once in a while you have a dining experience that knocks you off your feet. That was our reaction to dinner here.

We arrived without a reservation and were lucky to secure two seats at the bar counter. It was Saturday evening around 6. The place was full so next time we will make a reservation. We started off with the cheese plate, followed by entrees. The cheeses, served with apples and light lovely sauces and grilled foccacia, were a delightful start.... More

We ordered very good cocktails, an average salad, standard fare for entrees, and two good glasses of wine. We went here because it's rated #6 on TripAdvisor, which should mean an outstanding restaurant in this foodie town. I can only think a vegan bias exaggerates Plant's comparative rating in a town with so many more excellent restaurants. When you add... More

Plant is a small, intimate dining space. The food AND presentation .... impeccable. Each small plate is a work of art. I suggest that you begin with appetizers and go all the way through dessert and share so you can experience a variety of dishes that the chefs labor to make the most adventurous as well as delicious.

We go here for our romantic dinners. The food is amazing, wait staff the best and I love the atmosphere. My partner is a meat lover. He always finds an amazing ontray he loves. Try their cheese tray and of course their amazing vegan ice cream.

No matter what your diet preferences, Plant serves delicious and creatively prepared meals that any food lover will enjoy and appreciate. Have never had a meal that was not amazingly delicious here. Feel very fortunate to have this wonderful restaurant in Asheville! Wish they would offer brunch also!

We liked the food so much we ate 2 of our three dinners in Asheville here and, we're not even vegans. Every dish was simply delicious and beautifully presented with a tasty variety of ingredients and spices. Portions are generous and easily shared. The beet salad was outstanding as were the Brussel sprouts, but all is delicious.

We had the good fortune of being in Asheville for the weekend and having dinner at this restaurant. What a great menu. All items we had from the amazing beet salad with a horseradish sauce to the desserts were delicious and creatively presented. It compares to another favorite restaurant of ours, Candle 79, in New York City, which is also... More

Delicious! New Menu, as it changes seasonal it seems, and the beet horseradish appetizer was amazing, amazing. The presentation is , well just plain, "SEXY". Have eaten here since its inception and ALWAYS good. This IS my favorite place to bring people that have never been. Probably one of the best in the COUNTRY!

The Malbec was a great start followed by artichokes and plantains that had such complex flavor and the Wild Oyster Adobo. We had to top it off with the ice cream sampler (coffee, peanut butter and dark chocolate raspberry). Everything including the service was wonderful even for the non vegetarian!
