Our dinner was spectacular! It's a little outside of the main downtown area of Asheville, but fellow travelers, it is worth the few extra minutes to get there. It has an eclectic atmosphere which was fun. The service was fantastic. For our meal, we ended...up sharing several appetizers and it was delicious.More

Amazing meal, ambiance, and service!! I’m a foodie and have tried numerous prestigious restaurants, and this is the top of my list!! Everything I tried, including the dessert, was an explosive pleasurable experience that engaged all my senses to the fullest!! I highly recommend it!

Best dinner ever! Everything was fantastic. Started with potato leek soup and brussel sprouts appetizers, and they were awesome. Dinner followed with NY strip and the fresh fish (Corvino). Simply perfect. I never had steak so tender. Falling snow on the outdoor patio made the...evening perfect. You must try this place.More

We happened upon this restaurant via a website through “visit Asheville.” We were pleasantly greeted by the owner. Escorted to the outdoor section adequately heated with tall gas heaters. From the drinks to the food we experienced a culinary delight. Only negative was the bread...basket which seemed a bit on the stale side. Our waiter Stephen was a bit disconnected and on the bland side, with his timing off on the alcohol service and without engaging which did not enhance our experience. Excusing that, the owner made up for it in triplicate with his jovial personality and attention and accommodations to make it an experience we would definitely repeat. Hopefully by that time Stephen will be a bit more connected to the guests.More

My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience at this gym. I had the Duck Confit. My husband had the grilled Octopus with Butternut Squash Burrata salad. All were outstanding. Anything you choose will be incredible.

Fist time visitors to Jargon. The Brussel sprouts were absolutely amazing. I also ordered the pork belly and scallops. The plate contained the perfect combination of flavors. We also had to have dessert. The brown butter bourbon cake was like heaven in your mouth. Would...it be frowned upon to lick the plate?? Asking for a friend ;)More

Had dinner at Jargon last night. The food and service (Thomas was our waiter) was incredible. We had a party of 8...had 4 different entrees and every one of them were over the top. Highly recommend this place!

Fantastic. The outdoor patio is awesome and creates a very romantic/enjoyable atmosphere. The heaters and full canopy cover creates plenty of warmth. The wait staff was great - very attentive and helpful but not overbearing - perfect balance. Great wine and awesome flavors in the...dishes. Everything ordered was excellent. The favors and the combinations were top notch. Highly recommend the pork belly and scallops dish. Only recommendation would be one additional main entrée menu item, which I understand the menu changes frequently which is awesome but the addition of one chicken-based plate would have been appreciated as the menu when we dined seemed a little skewed towards seafood. Overall, highly recommend! Easily 5/5 stars. If the main dining room is booked don't shy away from the patio!More

I was impressed that when we checked in for our reservation we were thanked for cooperating with covid protocols and for supporting them by coming --FIRST time that happened anywhere. Food was fantastic(do NOT bypass brussels sprouts) and we had a blast at the "chef's...counter". It was our favorite experience of those we ventured off Biltmore for and would definitely go back. Hope the kitchen enjoyed the 6 pack!More

Would not bring children. Probably not teens either unless they have a very sophisticated palate.

Casual dress is just fine. Everything and everyone in Asheville is pretty informal and a lot of fun.
