After reading all of the excellent reviews, I was excited when we were able to get in for dinner without a reservation. Unfortunately, that excitement was quickly diminished when we were unfortunate enough to be seated in Kaitlyn's section at the bar. I've been in the service industry for over 20 years, so I wouldn't normally call someone out by... More

Have been stopping by CURATE every time we visit Asheville. Tapas are varied and every single one is excellent. Service is courteous and helpful recommending all alternatives. Wine list is very complete. Curate is a genuine Spanish restaurant. CURATE is a must when visiting Asheville.

The server helped us with menu explanations and suggestions. The food was served at a pleasant pace (not one dish on top of another). All he dishes were excellent and truly creative. I can't remember a meal that was so extraordinarily good and well served

Our second visit to Curate and we loved it as much as the first time. Food is amazing, with a great variety. Portion sizes are perfect to try lots of different dishes. Service was great too. Insist on seats at the bar. In fact, make sure you request bar seats when you make your reservation.

Excellent lunch of shrimp and garlic and lardon on toasts. Pure entertainment sitting at the bar and watching the staff chef it up.

There is a reason they suggest reservations 3-4 weeks in advance. We made reservations for two on a Wednesday night at 9:15pm. We made it there early and walked by around 8:50 to see if maybe they had our table ready, but we didn't even have to go in and ask. It was PACKED. When we did go in on... More

While visiting with friends in the area, they suggested we give Curate a try and we are very glad we did. From the opening of the door, the staff was friendly and accommodating. Our waiter was very helpful in recommending items for us to try and we enjoyed food that we would not have tried without his input. The sample... More

We saw this was rated #1, so we got on the list and went elsewhere for a cocktail. They texted us when our table was ready. The staff is extremely attentive and very knowledgeable. The menu is very involved, but we chose a few different items (thanks to a nice couple next to us!) and we were NOT disappointed!!! Wow.... More

The food is great and the atmosphere is too. Better have reservations, it is hard to get in otherwise. You will enjoy this one.

Great, great, great! Our return visit was even more fantastic than our first experience. Having friends with us afforded the opportunity to enjoy many more fabulous tapas. The eggplant with honey was a favorite and the unbelievably tender octopus was outstanding. Every plate exceeded our expectations.
