The tastiest and tenderest octopus ever . . . and the richest tasting mushrooms, too. It's crowded and high energy, but we had a blast chatting with the folks next to us at the bar and with the waiter - and trying all those new flavors. We had an awesome sangria, too, - and not too sweet the way manyt... More

As usual, this place is very busy with a wait... unless you skip the table and sit at the counter. It's fun to watch the food prep and try to match to the menu selection. Cocktails led to appetizers which led to sharing an entree. I almost gave up on eating there until I spotted a few seats at the... More

Wow! This place was amazing. Amazing food, amazing food presentation and amazing service. Family visiting from Chicago heard of Curate from friends and set up a reservation for a Sunday lunch. Our server, Jesse, was very well versed with the menu items and guided us through the various selections that are grouped from light starters to more filling grilled choices.... More

I sometimes forget about the joys of ordering a number of small plates to share with a dining partner. My wife and I stopped by here today after a two year hiatus from this tapas restaurant. We shared six dishes from toasted bread with tomatoes and manchego cheese, a plate of three, Spanish hams (loved the Serrano), patatas bravas, grilled... More

Very creative and very delicious tapas dishes. Don't miss the jamón ibérico fermín, if you like cured ham. And the fried eggplant with honey is out of this world. As long as you like the ingredients listed for each dish, you can't go wrong with anything you order. The wait staff is very knowledge so trust your server's recommendations. it's... More

My wife and I joined another couple here in July 2016. Overall, the meal was excellent, including the service. The room was only slightly noisy, compared to other full restaurants. (I prefer to avoid places where conversation becomes difficult). Of the roughly 12 dishes, all were very good or better. The pork skirt steak was excellent - maybe the best... More

I would highly suggest this place to be where you chose to have your fancy dinner night! We had reservations at the bar and really enjoyed watching the preparation of the food and getting great recommendations from the knowledgable server. Highly recommend making reservations at the bar!

We were looking to try something unique/different in Asheville. We've gone to so many restaurants here over the years, but read that that Curate was one of the best in Asheville. We made reservations and ended up going late Saturday night. Let me start by saying that the food is pretty good. It's unique and the menu has a wide... More
