"Very good meatless lunch"

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... read 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

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

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.
