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!

We had planned this as our "splurge" meal in Asheville and we were not disappointed. Our waiter made sure that our food arrived at an appropriate pace - not all at once. He made sure to warn us about the kitchen closing for savory at the end of the evening, which was appreciated! The "ultimate" gin & tonic was a... More

I have been to Spain and this is about as close as you can get to authentic Spanish tapas! The place was full when we arrived, but we booked a few weeks before our visit to Asheville, so reservations are strongly suggested. A table in the rear away from the noise from the bar area is ideal. It's a good... More

Likely the best food you will ever taste, and I'm not exaggerating. Our server (B. Bost) was on point with his recommendations of different food pairings. We chose about 7 different plates at the beginning and he brought them out in a certain order. Usually 2 plates at a time -- such as peppers stuffed with Spanish goat cheese +... More

Wow! This was a great experience! Michael, our server, was great. We went for lunch on Sunday and it was packed shortly after opening. We enjoyed all of our selections, but especially loved the lamb skewers and the Miel y Mato dessert was AMAZING! Curate has a really cool atmosphere and it was interesting to watch the kitchen at work.... More

Had a special anniversary family dinner here a week ago and it was outstanding in every way. Even the kids, 8 and 10, were interested enough by the food (especially the chicken croquettes) to make it through two hours of noshing. The variety and quality of the menu items is impressive, it is difficult to pick favorites but I particularly... More

We couldn't get dinner reservations at Curate so we opted, very last minute, for a late lunch there instead. Best decision of our trip to Asheville!! At 2:30 they were able to seat us at a very nice, quiet table. Our server, ERIC, was amazing. He guided us thru the extensive menu, made right-on suggestions, including the also extensive wine...

What a treat! Some local friends took me to Curate for an early dinner. The place was packed, but the were able to accommodate us because my friends dine there frequently. We had a wide variety of tapa-like dishes that were absolutely wonderful. My favorite was a watermelon salad. I look forward to eating there again next time I visit... More

Excellent food. It was a birthday dinner and everything was fabulous. The small plates gave us a chance to experiment.
