We love good food and in two short visits we have eaten here 3 times. Very high quality tapas. Chef has been written up in multiple magazines. Every item we have tried has been excellent. Favorites include peppers stuffed with goat cheese, potato salad with tuna ( better than it may sound). Have the
fried marcona almonds with drinks while you mull over the menu.Reservations a must at dinner but you may slide in at lunch if you're lucky.

Very good atmosphere, the tapas was fresh, tastey and varied. Had 5 orders which was plenty for wo people, left you feeling good and not full to the brim. Service was prompt, courteous and informative - made the dinner that much more enjoyable - definitely worth going back to

Tripadvisor steered us right again. We arrived early with no reservation, just before the placed filled up, sat at the bar and had a very good time. We had the eggplant and a few other things I don't remember. A neighbor at the bar recommended the serrano ham sandwich. That doesn't sound like much, but it was the best thing we had. We also ordered a jug of sangria, which was OK but not up to the quality of the rest of the meal.

One of the finest dining experiences that we have experienced occurred last night (Sunday 8/11) at Curate in Asheville. First suggestion - make a reservation in advance to get away from the noisy bar scene. Jade was an extraordinary server who had knowledge of the menu and wines. For first timers at this restaurant, we were in good hands.

Carol and I had a variety of taps dishes including lamb, white asparagus, Spanish cheeses and olives. Our wine selection, thanks to Jade, was the perfect compliment to our dishes.

It was a great evening of dining, we will definitely return!!!!

FIVE STARS!!!!!! Cannot say enough about our experience!!
