Went for drinks recent Saturday afternoon. The cocktails are delicious (esp. the Birds of Lacandon), but VERY small- like i thought they were handing us a tasting glass.... maybe 1/3 full rocks glass, including the giant ice cube. This was the case for 3 different...cocktails ordered. At $13 a pop, we may not do this again. The pretty photos on their FB page show the same cocktail with almost-full glass... so maybe bartender had a problem with us? Having said that the drinks were very innovative, pretty, and tasty, just wish we could have had more to savor for the price.More

Service was great and the scenery or ambiance was gorgeous. There was plenty of seating inside and out and the food was good - although perhaps a little too fancy for my teenagers.

Always the perfect vibe - outdoor, quiet but not too quiet. I continually wonder why more people aren’t here. Love the atmosphere, drink choices for everyone, menu always changing

One of six tap rooms we visited over three days on either sidebof Easter. This one was my favorite. I favored their beer and the atmosphere of the place.

Wow! What a place! Great location, great atmosphere, great beer and the best food! We sat downstairs and the entire experience was superb! We had the whole smoked chicken, salad, sweet potato and trout dauphines and a charcuterie board. Way too much, but had to...try all of the many chef created dishes! Kodos to the kitchen and the chef! A must go when in Asheville!More

The food was good. It’s a unique location which is the real selling point. The portion size was small for the price. Likely will not go back.

We ate here during a vacation to Asheville. The buildings and environment are very cool. The good was very unique and interesting. I didn’t love how once our server got a 4 top we were basically ignored. I had to ask someone else for a...fork and knife so I could eat my dinner. The food is quite expensive, so I didn’t appreciate how the server was just chasing a nicer tip.More

My husband and I spent our last afternoon in Asheville before heading to the airport at Forestry Camp. The best brewery we tried all week, that had some of the greatest beer we've ever had, is affiliated with Forestry Camp so we had to try...it. We had lunch on a Saturday afternoon, when the outdoor/informal restaurant is open and we loved it. We had the trout croquettes, house made hot dog, ham sandwich and cheesecake. All dishes were excellent and the Burial beer on tap was amazing. The staff was friendly and prompt. Go there!!More

We were a large, hungry group. It is a little more difficult when gathering multiple orders and placing them at the bar. Yet, the service was friendly and very good. We started with the Charcuterie & Cheese Board and drinks. We certainly had enough food...and shared bites all around. We had Tile Fish, Chorizio, garlic fries, salads, Beef Skewers and more. All was delicious. Yes, it is pricey but I think it is on par with the value. My char grilled beef skewers were excellent and served with a mild thin sauce (perhaps a brothy nuoc mam) and blue cheese. No one left hungry!More

If I could I would give this restaurant a ZERO RATE!! So I would absolutely not recommend this restaurant to anyone look for good customer service or good quality food! We ate at this restaurant on Valentine’s Day, after we called that morning and confirmed...that they were able to accommodate us at their heated out door seating area. When we came into the place we were told that we had to order our food at the bar and pay which included a tip before we could be seated. We also were handed our own plates and drinks that we had to carry outdoors without any help. At first I thought this was the standard way they ran the restaurant because of Covid but we found out later that their were guest eating upstairs at the restaurant who were waited on like regular guests. I think it was very unprofessional and lazy of the workers not to bring these things to the table outside because I had heels on and the ground was very moist because it was raining that day. Where is gets worst at is the area at which they had us and three other couples seated at. We were outside in a tent that was completely open so the heat that they claimed was on was never felt. I walked back into the restaurant twice to ask our waiter if they could turn up the heat because it was freezing cold. I was told by the manager Emily who was also our waiter that the heat was turned up already. I could tell the manager didn’t care that we were cold by the comments that she made when she came outside to our table. After I told the manager that myself and the other people in the tent couldn’t didn’t feel the heat and she stated “well you guys are sitting outside”. This was said in front of me and the other guests in a demeaning manner. When I originally booked the restaurant I wasn’t aware the outdoor seating wasn’t actually going to be warm inside. I explained to Emily that we never expected to be outdoors were we couldn’t feel the heat. We have been to numerous outdoor places where the heat was able to be felt to keep the guest comfortable. Emily keep lying and saying the heat (which we could view) was at the highest she could put it but in reality she didn’t want to turn it up. We sat outside for exactly one hour before we receive our main meals which was ridiculous in my eyes. Our waiter/manager didn’t offer us any condiments for our food, we didn’t even have salt or paper at the tables (picnic tables)that we were sitting on and our food was over $150 for two people. After we received our main meal we left the restaurant because we were completely disgusted with the staff and the food was completely nasty! The restaurant didn’t even have the Courtesy to offer us water. I called back a week later to speak with a manager to explain our experience there and evened asked to speak with the manager. The same person who waited on us became very hostile and confrontational. After speaking with her I requested to speak with a supervisor. She stated her supervisor (Luke) would give me a call that Thursday or Friday. Today is Sunday and I have yet to receive a call from the restaurant. I never intended to leave a review I just wanted the supervisor to know what we experienced but I think at this point I have no other option but to warn people not to come to this restaurant!More

Found this new spot in early February 2021. What a great find "off the beaten path."! Menu was very creative and delicious - go with the tasting menu. Each dish was unique and wonderful. Wine list was good and not full of the "usual suspects."...Service was excellent as well, our waiter knew a lot about the wine and food. The atmosphere here is also nice. I'd love to see it in the spring or summer, but it was nice and cozy in winter. Highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back!More

The good part was that the service was fine and the great historical building had ambiance. They have a nice wine and beer selection. Unfortunately each couple ended up spending well over $100 on very, laughably tiny portions and we all left the restaurant hungry....When we were seated, the waitress asked is she could bring bread. Four very small pieces for four of us arrived which we thought was rediculous, later finding out that they charged us $8.00 for what typically a "fine" restaurant would normally provide. We ordered 6 of the small plates as hor'edorves to share and there was not enough on any one of them for us all to get a taste except the smoked trout croquettes! My husband ordered the Ricotta Gnocchi and he said it was tasty, but it was a "large plate" selection and was an appetizer size meal with no sides. I ordered chicken salad sandwich-all bread, basically nothing on it. Very poor quality. We thought we were going to have a much different experience there after reading the reviews and were very disappointed. They lost our business and do not recommend this restaurant.More
