This was our first visit to Curate and will not be our last. The food was exceptional and the service was good despite a very busy day for the restaurant over the Thanksgiving weekend. Some of the best tapas since our last visit a couple of years go to Barcelona!!

The food here is simple fantastic. Spanish tapas style and an extensive menu, everything is amazing. Always busy so reservations are a must. Sangria is mixed at table side and is also very good. Considering the quality of the food the prices although not cheap are reasonable.

This is a lively place! Our 6 PM reservation was promptly honored, and we were seated toward the back of the long room at a table for four. Across the way was the long tapas bar which overlooks the grill and food prep where 6 or more chefs were busy preparing small plate features. We chose 2 servings of soup, 2 salads (ensalada de otono!) and 4 plates of meats/shrimp and then enjoyed 2 desserts. Our waitress was extremely helpful and checked on our progress without interfering. The ladies enjoyed one of the many tempranillo wines on the list. We came away with the feeling of a memorable experience and felt satiated but not stuffed. The quality of the items was top-notch.

Great food, decent decor, very friendly and helpful staff. We actually attended a private event in the downstairs dining room and liked it so much we went back the next day for a late afternoon snack and a glass of wine at the bar. Don't miss Curate when in Ashville.

We were looking for a different restaurant experience in Asheville and along with MANY other people found it at Curate. The tappas selections covered a wide variety to meet varying tastes; an excellent selection of wines are available; the service was attentive and responsive. If you plan to go, call for a reservation as the place gets very busy- continual groups of people arrive. The facility is in the heart of downtown Asheville; on street parking can be had, but parking garages are in convenient nearby locations.
