This place is awesome! My wife is gluten free and we were expecting her to have a couple of gluten free options to choose from. Little did we know the entire menu was gluten free and everything was amazing! It did not seem limiting at all with lot's of delicious items to choose from including fish, steak ,and vegetarian options. We both had the trout which was locally raised perfectly prepared and the kale salad was yummy as well. The atmosphere was really nice and felt like a very high end restaurant although prices were moderate. We liked it so much we went back two days later for brunch and were equally pleased. I'd say this is our favorite place in Asheville.

Food was excellent particularly dessert. But we were seriously disappointed with the lack of complementary bread with meal. After requesting we were served two small pieces of bread, for which we were charged $3.50. After expressing our dismay the server provided two more (free) pieces

Food and service was very good. The drinks are way overpriced for what you get. I did order a whiskey that was not on the menu and it was $24 for a single pour. I should have been notified about the price before they served it.

Recently visited Asheville from Idaho. Made reservations at Posano's because of the rating on Open Table. So pleased with the food and service that we are there twice during our stay. It is rare to find such quality food that is all gluten free. Would deforest recommend to anyone want great food!!!

As always, a memorable meal with great service! We particularly enjoy our table by the front window where we can view the downtown Asheville scene passing by. Having everything on the menu be gluten-free is delightful so that we don't have to pick and choose and ask seemingly endless questions of the server who then has to consult with the chef, etc.

Great spot in the middle of the downtown hub. The food was excellent. We had a variety of entrees, starters and desert and all were superb. All in all a very good restaurant with a good feel. Great service as well.

Absolutely delicious! We were in Asheville for the day and picked this place for brunch with another couple. I got the Tostada Breakfast bowl and it was so yummy, literally ate every bite. My husband isn't a big breakfast fan, so he got the Fried Chicken sandwich which he said was amazing. The space feels very fancy/funky inside, really cool lighting and decor, but the prices were so reasonable it made it a great value. I definitely recommend making a reservation, they were on a 45 min - 1 hour wait when we got there at 11am on a Saturday. We were 10 mins late for our reservation and got seated immediately. Great service, great food, will be back for sure.

My favorite restaurant of all time hands down! Creative cuisine and amazing gluten free options. This restaurant is a dream for those of us with celiac and for regular diners as well. I wish one would come to the Charleston area!!

The service was exceptional - possibly the best my wife and I have ever had. Emily, our waitress, was extremely knowledgeable and and exceedingly personable. The food was outstanding. The fried green tomatoes were the best I have ever had in the great state of North Carolina, and the scallops were also delicious! My wife and I loved how the entire place is dedicated to being completely gluten free, and it we will definitely be going there again whenever we are visiting Asheville!

Our meal was the best we had in Ashville! We went for our Anniversary! The service was outstanding. Annie was friendly and her recommendations on food and drink were spot on. We had the duck appetizer which was cooked perfect. The soup was fresh and had great flavor! The pear, goat cheese, walnut and brussel sprout salad was out of this world! For our entree we split the large scallop entree. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the flavor was incredible. The scallops had a chili jam, jasmine rice, and mushrooms the flavors and spiced complimented each other wonderfully. The pear bomb dessert was a delicious end to our meal! Highly recommended this restaurant.

We cannot get enough of this restaurant. The fact that it is gluten free is icing on a very delicious cake. We have never had a bad experience, and we come often. The wait staff is knowledgeable and amazing. The food is SO good! You know how other restaurants do chicken half-assed because they think it's boring? This is the best chicken ever!

Downtown Asheville was packed as full as it could get this October Saturday evening. Art shows, live theater, music. Posada was packed at 6 PM. Waiter staff was clearly running, and we had a concert to get to. Amazingly they delivered their usual intelligent affable prompt service along with a perfectly prepared meal (Brussels salad shared, Local Sautéed Trout, and some glorious Scallops). Our favorite Asheville restaurant in a beautiful historic building on Pack Square.

Brunch options excellent, and GF as always which is wonderful. Tried the beet spritzer and was pleasantly surprised by the refreshing taste. The restaurant was packed, plus there was a large private party so service was a little slow compared to usual.

Our favorite restaurant in Asheville. That in itself says a lot. Inventive menu, perfectly prepared food and great service- we're always happy when Sue is our server. She knows the menu and adds her own flavor in the form of her witty personality and upbeat presentation.

We had an absolutely lovely time and a delicious meal. Service was top notch, they weren't even rude to us when we stayed 45 mins past close.. Sorry about that! IT was my last meal as a resident of asheville and I'm so grateful <3

Posana is my new favorite restaurant! Being able to choose anything on the menu and no worries because it is all gluten free - a blessing! Their drinks have always been top notch and the food never a let down. I recommend Posana to all my friends, telling them it is worth the trip to Asheville. I will be back for sure, as I cannot wait to try some more item on the menu.
