“Delicioso!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We were so happy to have Curate recommended to us...food was delicious, and we loved the pretty atmosphere and attentive service. The best part was to enjoy a more sophisticated dining experience than hitherto seen in Asheville. Curate offers hospitality in an appropriate balance of warmth and reserve...it's a genuine, personal care for the guest experience without over-familiarity. We will be back, for certain.

“Fabulous experience for the taste buds!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Wonderful selection and variety. We were five women sharing 8 dishes. Everyone had a favorite, but all dishes were flavorful. Our server was excellent. I plan to return soon.

“Bravo!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Curate exceeds its reputation. All five dishes were unique, balanced and complimentary. Each dish was a carefully crafted work of art, harmonizing flavor & texture. The services was fantastic. Our server made an excellent wine suggestion that worked well with our pallets and the food. Truly outstanding experience!

“Lived up to the hype”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

There were numerous dishes here that I would hold up to any tapas that I've had in Spain or let alone the US. Their croquettas are perfect. The skirt steak was mind-blowing. An octopus dish was the best octopus I've had. A white asparagus dish was an airy delight. The only miss for me was a red pepper and eggplant dish. But, that was easily forgiven as everything else was top notch. The wine list is great, packed with lots of interesting Spanish wines, including some obscure ones, all for very reasonable prices.
