Good Vegetarian & Vegan Eating Here

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... read more

After searching for a restaurant on our list and finally finding it closed, we pushed ahead and discovered Rosetta's. Being a planner and reading reviews before entering an establishment, I shocked our group and entered spontaneously! To be honest, I was not sure we would feel comfortable there as we went in downstairs, not in their upstairs counter service location.... More

The food was great! It's my favorite restaurant in downtown Asheville. I love that they have kombucha on tap. Friendly servers! Can't wait to eat there again!!

I've gone to this restaurant more than once. It has been consistently disappointing. They always get something wrong or overcook things. The last time I received a piece of tempeh that was so burned 1/4 inch was black and hard. It was so burned, I took a picture. I called for a refund. On my next trip to the restaurant... More

Let's be honest, pure vegetarian restaurants are few and fare between in our great country, often our vegetarian choices are limited to veggie burger, burritos or salad.When I get the chance to dine at a restaurant that is dedicated to a vegetarian diet, of course I'm gonna give it 5 stars. I discovered Rosetta a couple of years ago and... More

This interesting restaurant sits in a busy neighborhood off of I-240 in Asheville. Great food, interesting staff and patrons make this a great hangout. They offer, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free items, all made on site. It is worth a trip to check this restaurant out! Indoor dining and a back upper porch that is open air in season.

After a long day of enjoying Asheville, followed by late night music and drinks, we needed a late night vegan restaurant for some much needed sustenance! Rosetta's filled the ticket, with delicious curries and vegan options.

We enjoyed the Ruben, tacos, and veggie burger. Can't believe it is all vegetarian. Good food but know what to order.

Had one of the best "veggie burgers" EVER at Rosetta's Kitchen! This restaurant had been highly recommended to me, and I can see why. Nice menu with tons of really delicious-sounding vegan options. The restaurant itself is small and almost "nondescript" when you walk in. But I was impressed with the food and plan to revisit Rosetta's the next time... More
