Had a dinner with 5 additional guest. Menu was quite extensive and offered everything imaginable. Would highly recommend a visit there if you are in town. Moderately priced.

This is a very good tapas restaurant for those who want Spanish cuisine served with locally produced meat and produce. They are well done and often creative and the price is reasonable.

Try any of the tapas, most of them are great. We love their soups and salads. The bread, jamon, and cheese appetizers are all terrific. Watch out for the "heavy" stuff like lamb or stuffed canelone, they'll be greasy. Our favorite is the calamari sandwich. The service is top notch. Don't splurge on wine -- their cheapest glasses are more... More

This spot is not to be missed when you're in Asheville. Even if you don't have any experience in tapas (we didn't) staff is very helpful. Plus if you sit at the bar all of the cooking action is right in front of you. Special experience.

My husband and I visited our daughter who. lives in Asheville and we always love to dine at Curate. While reservations are extremely difficult to secure and deservedly so; I snagged three bar stools - we ordered octopus, Brussels sprouts, sautéed spinach, lamb skewers, Iberian ham sampler, salad with oranges and roasted beets - every dish was delicious and artfully...

We're locals. There are so many ways to enjoy Curate'. For a quick intro, try to get lucky and check if a space is available at the bar. Get a starter and watch the chefs at work. Then just point at whatever excites you. This time it was a family bash on New Year's Eve. So we went for chef's... More

Omg, this is one of the truly wonderful restaurants in Asheville. Great for lunch or dinner. I'm lucky to have dined here a number of times. Consider booking a table well in advance of your visit. The wait staff are tuned in professionals who seem passionate about the offerings. Not as many offerings for vegetarians as some places in amazing... More

My husband and I stopped in for an early dinner. I had been there before but he had not. It is restaurant week but we were early and got a nice bistro table in the front. We ordered a bottle of Spanish red that was delicious and three plates plus the dessert that is like flan, but lighter. Everything was... More

I'm an Asheville native born and bred. I've watched a lot of restaurants come and go in this tourist town but Curate isn't going anywhere! I've lost count of how many times I have eaten here. The food is insane. The sangria is always a good decision and I love that the restaurant has been so successful because it is... More
