This was our second dinner here and it was just as wonderful as the first. The service is attentive and friendly. The special menu items have tended to be our favorites. This time it was a mushroom risotto. We also love the bacon small plate...delicious.

Very much enjoyed the food, drinks and entertainment here. The service is great! The goat cheese ravioli is to die for, and the lamb pappardelle is also very good - although the broth was a little too salty. Excellent entertainment!

An excellent small restaurant. All the food is very interesting, delicious and beautifully served. Loved the scallop appetizers I ordered as a main course and the Brussels sprout appetizer that we shared. We all loved our meals.

I've been here twice recently. When there with a large group, the staff was accommodating and the food was excellent by all accounts. The drinks took a little while to come in the beginning, but that was when the restaurant was very full. All in all, it is worth every penny.

Delicious brunch last Easter Sunday! The dishes were creative and beautifully presented. The service was excellent. And the location is great! The Steak and Eggs was well presented, and delicious. My daughter had the Spinach omelet, perfect portion, and amazing presentation. Is like a 5 start restaurant. Hidden jewel in downtown Asheville. If you are in the area, you have... More

My friends and I had a delicious dinner at this lovely restaurant. The dishes (small plates and entrees and dessert) were creative and beautifully presented. The service was excellent. And the location is great: very close to the Haywood Park Hotel in downtown. The roasted spicy cauliflower on black quinoa was a great combination with a small plate of maple... More

Hey folks, this is not your ordinary run of the mill restaurant. You have to realize that Chef Dissen has put together a place where when you sit down you can call home. As a Chef, we look to be inviting and have the food make you feel wonderful. Food is to bring memories, memories that go from your head... More

I used to think I like salty food. My boyfriend and I ordered several dishes, by the second dish I was spitting the food back on the plate it was so salty. I left with a headache, heart palpitations,and swollen face. WARNING. IF YOU HAVE A HEART CONDITION, DO NOT CONSUME

Travelled into an old section of Asheville and walked into a chic restaurant right out of a posh and modern restaurant from NYC. The interior was very modern. The food was tapas style and beautifully plated. the wine selection was excellent. The chef is graduate from the American Culinary Institute. Every bite was special.
