Not the friendliest veggie fare in town...A bit pretentious and food can be inconsistent. Are there new owners or something? Seems a bit schizophrenic - buchi bar is a cool update but upstairs seems grimy and run-down. Too bad, used to be a great place.

This was my second time visiting and I was wowed once again. The Earth kombuccha recommended by my awesome server Rain was delightful. I was able to sit with my canine travel buddy and enjoyed vegan queso and chips while I waited for my food to go. Surrounded with beautiful plants and decor the vibe is laid back and welcoming....

Rosetta's was highly recommended to us when we visited Asheville this month. It's a casual little restaurant with a buchi bar. My husband sampled a local brew while I tried the buchi flight, 6 samples of local kombucha flavors. They were so original and flavorful. My husband is not vegan but he really enjoyed the spicy black bean chili. The... More

This was heaven for vegetarians!!! I ordered three hard tacos -- been finding it difficult to find good vegetarian hard tacos -- and cornbread with kale. Everything was super delicious and very satisfying! My chef boyfriend couldn't get over the gravy they put on the cornbread -- pretty amazing. Highly recommend!!!

If comfort food is your thing, Rosetta's is the place for you. I gave it average stars because I'm not big on comfort food but the food quality is really good. All vegetarian/vegan restaurant with a hippie/grungy atmosphere. Even if comfort food isn't your thing and you're a veggie in the Asheville area, Rosetta's is definitely a place to check... More

Loved this place! Great healthy food! Had the rice and pinto beans with avocado and a salsa that had a lot more heat on it that expected. I shared the cornbread (lightly sweetened) with was a generous large skillet slice. One person in my party had the Portabella sandwich. Decor is very simple and appreciated the indoor/outdoor feel of the... More

We came here for dinner one night while visiting Asheville and were very impressed with the food. We ordered a lot of food; the tacos, a sandwich with a side salad and chili cheese fries. It was all very good. If we lived here, we would definitely be regulars.

My husband had the veggie burger, and I had the Buddha Bowl. Both were excellent. Service was great.
