What terrific food! We came for dinner, and loved it so much we came back the next day for lunch ( same menu and prices but didn't need a reservation). Excellent, unpretentious service, delicious tapas. Highly recommend!

Been several times now with great friends and cannot find enough superlatives to describe the food here. Outstanding shareable plates, everything was delicious. The grilled octopus was my favorite, but everything rocked. Well done!

We dined here for lunch prior to a college tour. We enjoy small plates and have visited Spain and sampled delicious tapas there. That being said, we found the offerings here to be carefully and deliberately selected to offer Americans an honest taste of Spanish tapas. We enjoyed everything we ate: pulpo, a ham platter, sausage sandwich and calamari sandwich.... More

Incredibly delicious! My wife and I tried several menu items and picked winners all! We sat at the bar and enjoyed the conversation with, and the bird's-eye-view of the staff in action. Almost as impressive as the food! We will definitely be back!

Curate is nationally recognized for its creatively interpreted Spanish cuisine. We eat there every time we visit Asheville, and we've never been disappointed. The charcuterie is especially good, and the wine list is impressive. They also offer a wide array of gluten free menu items. The wait staff is excellent, too.

Dined at the bar last week and had a top notch experience. The bartender was extremely knowledgable and helpful in picking wine and after dinner drinks as well as helping us make good food selections. Can't wait to go back.

Disclaimer: we DO like Spanish tapas restaurants. We enjoy the small serving, many plates eating style. Given that, this place is FUN! The food is delicious, the offerings are varied, and the presentation is VERY well thought out. Service, even on a Sunday afternoon during brunch, was attentive and well-paced. The menu is also very dietary-need conscious, with options listed... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Asheville. I eat there at least 4 times a year. But I can only justify 3 stars because of the service. The food is excellent, but they are falling down on training their young service personnel. Is it so difficult to hire a competent, motivated server in Asheville? I think not. The service is...

Wow, flavor sensation. Every dish was amazing, plus make sure you don't miss their sangria. Once you finish your sangria, say yes to having them return the fruit. Most knowledgeable staff of any restaurant in North Carolina. Bit loud and busy feeling, but food second to absolutely none!

Thank trenttome
