Red Stag Grill-Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville Ratings and Reviews
We could not have been more disappointed in our experience. Despite having an Open Table reservation, the front office staff was disorganized and confused. We waited 10 minutes to be seated and another 15 to even have a waitress. Then another 10 for water and another 10 for coffee which was lukewarm and had to sent back. No refills on coffee or water unless prompted. Our bloody Mary's would have come at the END of our meal, had the meal arrived within 30 mins (which it didn't). The food was ok but not great. We were there for a happy reunion-type occasion so really wanted to enjoy it. Such a disappointment.
Red Stag Grill never disappoints. With family in Tennessee and NC, this has earned its spot as our fave spot to meet halfway. They have perhaps the most gracious staff east of the Mississippi. The local trout entree was superb. The chef cheerfully accommodated dietary restrictions, and the server never batted an eye. Desserts were creative and delicious. Can't wait till it's time to meet here again.
We keep returning to the Red Stag because....the ambiance is perfection....the waitstaff is outstanding....the menu has choices to please everyone's pallet....the food is delicious....we have always had a wonderful, relaxing meal! Special requests....just ASK....chef could not be more accommodating. The Grand Bohemian Hotel is a gem - guaranteed to please even the pickiest perfectionist!
Food: Hunt Board, Lamb & Trout.
Lamb chop was fantastic and overshadowed the lamb shank. The Trout was good as was the hunt board. Mushroom & farro was superb.
Ambience and service.
For around $30 a plate, you expect a certain level of service that we didn't receive. The bar area had a great live pianist and wonderful ambience but, walking back into the main dining area it was a lot less lively and a lot more quiet.
Based on the ratings & reviews, I was very hopeful but left underwhelmed. Maybe we caught it on an off night?
A lovely but expensive restaurant in the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville, NC. It is very dim in the restaurant but they do have lighted menus so that was a big help. Our dinners of rib-eye steak and halibut were excellent. When we had a little mishap at our table, the immediate efficiency and concern of Andrea, the restaurant manager, was nothing short of wonderful. She took care of everything in a quick and low-key manner. We would return to any restaurant where someone of her caliber was in charge. Our waiter's service was fine; a little slow but we weren't in a hurry. We both thoroughly enjoyed the Red Stag Grill and will stay at the Grand Bohemian Hotel on our to Asheville.
there was a grandmother playing a continuous stuffed toy birthday song at the next table
the child was not the problem as she was well behaved but the repetitive song ruined our dining experience for a quiet romantic outing. they drank and became louder with raucous laughter as the nite progressed
I usually don't review restaurants but I was so upset by my experience at Red Stag Grille that I felt compelled to say something...
My husband and I made a reservation here for our first wedding anniversary. They lost our reservation and then told us that they had given our table away. They then sat us at a table with a view of McDonalds, complete with street lights blaring in our faces.
Our server was miserable--he was serving maybe 3-4 tables but it took him a VERY LONG time to assist us with simple things like refilling our water. At the end of the meal, we actually looked around for him to bring us the check because we hadn't seen him in so long.
The food was mediocre. Absolutely NOT worth the price paid. We both ordered the filet and they both came out really charred (not like a good sear charred, but like burnt charred).
In addition, the photos with the red mood lighting are a farce--while the atmosphere was nice, it was certainly not as romantic as depicted.
Overall, it was a negative experience and I definitely would not recommend it.
This was our 5th visit to The Red Stag and it continues to be one of the top restaurants we've ever encountered. The food is always excellent. The service is outstanding. Always just the right amount of formality mixed with Southern hospitality. The decor is comforting and very mountain lodge style with a little modern flair mixed in. We cant speak highly enough and recommend The Red Stag to everyone we know making the trip to Asheville. We will come back again and again in the years to come, I'm sure.
We were celebrating a birthday weekend and staying at the Grand Bohemian. It was a pleasure to be able to relax and not have to drive anywhere different for dinner. The four course, wine paired dinner was excellent from the salad to the carrot cake! The scallops were excellent and the elk never disappoints! All of the wine pairings were spot on. We'll be back!
We celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and it was stunning. From the old-world entry way with a rustic burly fireplace and warm leather chairs, we could tell attention to detail was their strong point. Low lighting, live piano music, and beautiful craftsmanship took us away to another world even before we dined! I was met at the table with 13 fresh roses as our romantic center piece, placed there at the request of my husband. Our waitress was perfectly attentive and sincerely congratulated us on our anniversary. We chose the chef's tasting menu and we were not disappointed! Each entree was carefully crafted and wonderfully balanced, paired with delightfully complimentary wines. The star of the show, in my opinion, was the elk...a subtle masterpiece on a beautifully thoughtful plate. Although, each course had a shining element that deserved praise all its own. Ours was a complete dining experience, one that we will not soon forget. Our highest praise to the chef, the wait staff, and the interior designer! Thank you all for a very special evening!!!
Beautiful dining room, it transports you to a lodge far far away. Hostess tried, was okay. Server was vibrant and very helpful. Food was delicious! Duck dish was over salted but otherwise flavors were outstanding! Benedict was also delicious with crispy potatoes.
Would recommend for brunch, date night and midweek lunch specials.
We did dinner here for my husband's birthday on a recent trip to Asheville. I had made a reservation (highly recommended), we were greeted and seated right away. We were checked on by the waiter almost immediately for our drink order and if we had any questions. The waiter was very attentive throughout the meal, without being intrusive. The food was fabulous! My husband had the short ribs that were very flavorful and really tender. I had the filet mignon that was cooked perfectly and very tender. The entire dinner was fabulous and the atmosphere was very nice Lastly the hotel will do complimentary valet parking when you dine at the restaurant as well. We will definitely be back when we are in Asheville again.
We went with a friend who has enjoyed the Red Stag very much for weekday lunch several times, so he had assumed that brunch on Sunday, which was the only menu available although we had a reservation for 2:15, would be very good, too. It wasn't. We all ordered what was billed as a roasted duck and wild boar hash with caremlized onions. The onions were not carmelized; they were merely sautéed and limp. The dish comprised a little bit of duck; somewhat more boar in the form of a mild, tough sausage with little flavor; and copious amounts of the cheap ingredient, roasted potatoes. For $18 we all thought it was a total rip-off.
The wait staff seemed poorly trained. Our waiter, a young man, started by saying his name and telling us he would "be taking care of" us, and he called me (aged 67) "My dear." That's not the sort of behavior we expected in a restaurant in a hotel of its purported calibre. My husband had to flag him down later to get more water; the first glass itself was cracked so he had to send it back. We were one of three tables in the place so the staff could not have been busy.
We were near a sideboard where there were pitchers of water, napkins, silverware, and so on. One waitress pouring water into glasses spilled a puddle of it on the floor, just to the right of our friend, who is in his 80s, and who might have slipped and fell had we not seen the spill. She just looked at it and left it on the floor until another patron, who passed by our table on his way out, said something to my husband about the water. Then the man said to waitress, "That's $500 million waiting to happen." At that point she got rag and wiped it up.
Most disappointing. Our friend says the Thursday lunch menu is good.
We often meet at Red Stag for Sunday Brunch. The wait staff is personable and professional. The chef is top notch and all of the food is fabulous. The atmosphere is relaxing and elegant. It is one of our favorite spots in Asheville. And...if you HATE trying to find a parking spot downtown, there is complimentary valet parking for dining guests.
We had reservations for brunch Sunday 2-19 and arrived about 5 minutes early. We were told by the hostess that she “had been told not to seat anyone for a while because the kitchen was backed up”. It was suggested that we wait at the bar so we did even though we could see that there were lots of empty tables and would have preferred to be seated in the dining room to sip our wine and mimosas while we waited for our food.
The bartender told us that they were busier than they had expected to be. We ordered drinks and sat at bar for 15 minutes. Then someone came and told us he could seat us after we “closed out” at the bar. In my experience, most upscale restaurants will transfer your bar tab to your dining check so that you only have one receipt to deal with. So, the service person waited while we settled up at the bar. He did not offer to transport our carafe of mimosas or wine glasses to the dining room, again something that usually happens at an upscale place.
After we were seated in the dining room (still lots of empty tables), we waited another 15 minutes before anyone took our order and were told that there was some confusion about who was supposed to wait on us.
Good news is, my entrée – salmon tartine- was very good (my husband was less enthused about his). Bad news is, we probably won’t be back. Too many other choices in Asheville.
I have been here several times over the past several years and never been disappointed. I had a birthday dinner here with family and we all loved our food from the scallops to the elk . The salads were good too. I only eat a little seafood ...otherwise vegetarian and don't like heavy or spicy foods. I enjoyed my meal. The others in my party eat anything and loved theirs too. We ate here again for Sunday brunch . Their grits are the best ever....all 9 of us agreed! We know grits too. My omelet was filling and tasty. My son had a hash with duck and ? other meat and he loved it! The others also enjoyed their meals...coffee good too. We were very pleased with our meals. The 6 layer chocolate cake for my birthday was also good...waiter was very good.
Great experience at the red stag. Food was on point. Service to match. Look and feel of the dining room was awesome. We sat across from the kitchen, was an amazing experience to watch the crew at work. My only complaint was the table. This place was packed when we visited, for our anniversary. Our table for 2,could have been for 4. With the busy chatter, it made it hard to converse with my wife. But that is nit picking. We will be back. A lot.
