My friend and I recently dined at Table in Asheville. We wisely made a reservation for our Saturday evening visit. As you enter the restaurant you travel by the open kitchen to access the dining room. For a moment I thought I had entered through the wrong door! It's a bit disarming at first. The dining room is fairly small but functionally situated. The glass brick wall adds an illusion of space. We were grateful to be seated against the wall, affording a chance to converse without screaming across the table. The server was warm, attentive and very knowledgeable of the menu. The menu is pretty meat centric. The charcuterie platter offers cured meats and cheeses. The sweet and pickled accompanyments nicely complimented the main attractions here. Pig tail taster, pork belly and crispy fried pork ear get the carnivore's attention! The pork belly was a bit dry but tasty none the less. My friend ordered the scallop entree. It was accompanied by roasted fingerling potatoes. It was fairly disappointing. The scallops were visibly seared by lacked the delightful contrast usually found with such a dish. We really didn't understand the pairing with potatoes. Not a fan. The beef brisket was well seasoned and cooked to perfection. It was paired with creamy white beans and fried kale. The kale was delightfully seasoned and made the dish which would have been boring otherwise. Overall it was a good meal, but with so many restauranteurs going for this type of vibe these days it better be super soulful to stand out.....

Table in downtown Asheville serves up an excellent Americana menu that is farm-to-table style. The atmosphere is intimate and far from pretentious. The waitstaff did everything a waitstaff should and even helped us out with finding other restaurants in town.

Our dinner was the best dinner we had during our stay in Asheville. I had the rib eye and my wife had the scallops. Both were perfectly prepared, delicious, and best of all filling. The menu changes daily (I believe) with the availability of the farm-sourced ingredients.

Table also has plenty of beer and wine choices to make it worthy of a great Asheville dinning experience. We simply loved it!

We found the food at Table to be thoughtfully prepared with fresh ingredients with lots of flavors. We arrived around two and there was no wait. Our waitress was pleasant and answered all of our questions about the menu and made some great recommendations.
Great place to visit if you're looking for delicious, comfort food.

The restaurant is situated on College Street, a short walk from downtown hotels.

We started with the lamb carpaccio appetizer, then the wife had scallops while I had the beef rib. While the carpaccio was excellent, the entrees were tired and boring. We both felt that we had ordered off the senior citizens low salt menu. In addition, the portions are skimpy ($24 for 4 scallops), though considering what we thought of the food, this was not a real hardship.

We've read good reviews of this restaurant, so this may have been an off night, but in a city with as many restaurant choices as Asheville has, we'd try a number of other restaurants before we'd return here.
