Three of us - didn't have a reservation, so sat at the bar and started with drinks and some tapas and then moved to a table. Pomegranate martini good! Fun to share plates and eat as they come out. Chickpeas a little too lemony, arugula salad great, pea risotto stuffed quail unusual and good. The beef was excellent. Some not enough to share amongst 3, so ask what the quantity is.

The food was great. The atmosphere was wonderful. Very good service. Our first time here and the experience was wonderful. We will go back next time we are in Asheville. Love the small batch bourbon they have here. Highly recommend this place.

For a tapas place, they need to work on the pacing and sequencing of the food ordered. Also, having food warmer than lukewarm would be nice.

We enjoyed a nice 2 hour meal with friends - the tempo was great and selections interesting. The vegetable dishes were particularly good including the watercress and tomatoes - the braised tofu was very good as well. On the downside the lighting is terrible for 50+ year old eyes - a few more watts would be nice. Also the music started about 8:30 - wish it was peeled back a bit earlier .
