This cafe is a hidden gem right next to the Grovewood Gallery, the best fine craft gallery we have ever visited. So make a reservation ,even walk in that day and then visit the gallery while you wait for your table. Beautiful outdoor seating in terraced garden when weather is good; small indoor seating with views if you need shelter or air conditioning. The food is excellent and prepared by order. So relax with a glass of wine and visit while the chef makes a wonderful meal for you. Very attentive,professional service. The soups are especially good but everything we have had was great ( in two visits). Perfect lunch place.

We ate here as a special family event. Food was unexceptional. No salad. No frills and seemingly no extra effort. Service was average at best and all around a disappointing and unspecial event.

Very good and interesting food in a gracious room. Good wine selection, different menu, very good service, not cheap but good value for reasonable prices. Park there and walk up the hill to look over the Grove Park Inn.

Went here for lunch. They had a $14 crab cake salad which sounded good...what it really was ... three petite crab balls and some lettuce. Asheville this time of year should have some great fresh veggies and any place worth its salt should have an abundance of those in a "salad". My associate had a chicken breast salad....same thing...small portion of meat and some tron lettuce and a couple of pieces of onions.....no carrots, no cukes, no tomatoes. It was the sort of side salad that you expect at a meat and 3 kind of place. Not a restaurant right next door to the Grove Park Inn.
I had heard good things about this restaurant so I am glad I tried it for lunch and it only cost me $14 for "saladette" and did not waste money exploring it for dinner...Very disappointing!
