“A very nice bar, a great restaurant, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Storm is one of the few places in Asheville that does late night dining. The reason they stay late is so they can give the large waiting staff of Asheville a dining option when they get off of work. I think that's pretty cool. Ok, very good drinks, attentive bartenders, friendly wait staff, and excellent food. The selection isn't huge but it hits the spot.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We really enjoyed this place a lot. Casual. Nice ambience. Really good food. Excellent service. The brussel sprouts made converts of those who swore that they were not fans of the little cabbages. This was our favorite place for dinner during our stay. Only one complaint...the chairs were NOT comfortable.

“quiet, intimate restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This would be a great place for a date night; it's very quiet and intimate. Not a good place for a large group of friends. The service was great and the food was amazing! I had the three cheese macaroni and grilled hangar steak :)

“Go, go, go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We were lucky enough to get in on Saturday night. Loved the place. Had the salmon. Others had the short rib and shrimp and grits, pimento cheese, and kale salad. Everything was very good and included a few different sides that were unique and flavorful. Portion sizes are not huge, but just enough. Innovative drinks that were delicious, but perhaps a little slow to get to the table. We would definitely go again.

“great local spot with very creative vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Found this place on our first night in town just blocks away from busy downtown area. Sat at bar and loved it so much we went back two days later. Staff and bartendars were all very friendly. Decor is really cool. Low lighting but custom fixtures add cool vibe. Food was very creative. Enjoyed the shrimp and grits and duck entrees and yummy salads. Decided to go back our last night in town. Couldn't resist the reviews about how good the burgers were. They were right! Cocktail menu was big draw. Definitely try one of the specialty drinks.
