Definitely community minded!

We liked this restaurant because of it's good food and vegan/gluten free options. We also liked that they provide food to homeless and needy individuals based on their ability to pay.

I returned three times in the one week I was in Asheville! Beautiful menu, especially the special drinks downstairs. Tempeh reuben sandwich with sweet potato fries. Definitely going back.

Yum! Traveling vegans often end up very limited choices so finding this gem was very exciting. Even better was that Rosetta's delivered on their promise of great food. The kombucha was quite good, too. We know our non vegan friends would enjoy this as a great option, too.

We went here after a long day of hiking and were HUNGRY. Rosetta's did not disappoint our huge appetites. The food is just like your mom would make were she vegetarian. Yummy, comforting and satisfying. We had amongst us the Nacho Platter loaded with vegan queso and pico de gallo, the Family Favorite (peanut butter tofu with gravied mashed potatoes... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Rosetta's. While the names of the different dishes are what one would expect at a standard vegetarian/vegan restaurant, they are prepared in creative ways which brings out the flavors in the food. The ambiance is "early college" which makes the experience fun. Also, there is plenty to read while you eat from all the... More

While we were in Asheville our daughters said we had to try Rosetta's Kitchen. I checked out their menu on line so I could have an idea of the food they had. I'm glad I did because they have very different options than we are used to. My husband & I are both meat eaters, our daughters are vegan. What... More

When we saw Rosetta's among the choices on the A.I.R. Passport (Asheville Independent Restaurant owners' association coupons) we though we'd give it a try; otherwise we might never have discovered it. Very happy choice! My pad thai had a nice variety of ingredients and a very flavorful sauce, along with ingredients many pad thai chefs have left out - which... More

Great food, especially the vegan queso! The service as quick and friendly. The website said the restaurant opened at 11 but it didn't open until 12, which disappointing because we had skipped breakfast and were really hungry.

Great natural food pub! We went specifically for Kombucha on tap and had a fruit bar snack while there. We perused their menu but weren't there at a meal time. Would definitely go back to check out their selections.

The restaurant has 2 levels, with the bar downstairs, but still offering the full menu. Plenty of eating space is available, but my wife and I prefer the intimacy of the space downstairs. The food here is really good. The Pad Thai is some of the best I've had, and the peanut butter baked tofu meal is scrumptious. The service... More
