Red Stag Grill-Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Ambiance is initial attraction as you walk in the Grand Bohemian lobby, and especially so on a very cold, windy evening and pull up a chair beside a roaring fire. This was a day after Valentine's dinner date with our four year old granddaughter. My reservation request for a booth was honored, they were prepared with child's menu, crayons, and chocolate milk. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Chicken tenders met with granddaughter's approval as did the halibut and short rib for my husband and me. Lovely experience and would definitely recommend for special occasions or just when you feel like a cozy spot to dine.
My husband and I enjoyed a romantic Valentine's day dinner at the Red Stag. The ambiance was lovely, the service was impeccable, and the menu, ah the menu. We had elk. It was cooked to perfection. The meal was well timed, the pairing of vegetable, sauce and meat was perfect. The red velvet cake was sublime. We were guests at the hotel and enjoyed several really good breakfasts there as well, but that Valentine's Day meal was "the bomb".
We thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday brunch. The red stag potatoes that are offered with most of the entrees are really exceptional. I particularly enjoyed the sausage omelette with cheese grits.
Those who had the bloody marys were especially impressed. Very tasty.
The service was prompt and efficient. Very professional staff and a unique atmosphere. One- of- a- kind place.
All in all a very pleasant experience. Highly recommended.
My husband and I decided to have a rare date night out without our daughter to The Red Stag. It was our first time there and it truly impressed us. From the valet to the entire dining experience, the night was amazing! The food was absolutely outstanding! Our Server, Paul was the best in that he was extremely attentive and so respectful of our conversation and time together. The restaurant is beautiful and the décor is just stunning. Super romantic restaurant that knows how to give people the best dining experience possible!
My first time in Asheville, and I must say I was impressed. Especially with Red Stag. This place was beautiful and the service was impeccable. Our server Jeanie (sp?) was tentative, but gave us enough space to enjoy our date. We were celebrating my birthday, and I have to say this place is perfect for a special occasion. The front desk, the bartender, and all of the servers were amazing. We ordered the crab cake, filet, and bison hanger steak. All were delicious. We would have ordered dessert as well but a lovely couple offered us a piece of their anniversary cake as a tradition, so we couldn't turn down free cake! It was made by the pastry chef there, so complements to them. We will be back!!
We were here for a romantic weekend and staying in the hotel for dinner was well worth it. We also had two breakfasts here. The service and ambiance were fabulous. The food was very good, but not outstanding. The combinations were terrific, but the duck breast was not very tender and was very salty. The drinks were great and had a great variety, including new twists on old favorites. The flourless chocolate black forest cake was to die for! The breakfasts were very tasty, esp the housemade sauasge omelette with carmelized onions!!
I took my wife here while on our honeymoon. The restaurant itself was beautiful and very romantic. The staff was incredibly nice and attentive. We both ordered the 4 course tasting menu and everything was phenomenal! Easily one of the best meals I've ever had. Perfect for a special occasion or date night!
I took my parents to the Red Stag for their anniversary and called ahead to see if they could make the experience extra special for us. The staff was very kind in accommodating me. They seated us in a private area, they had a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us at the table when we arrived, and treated us to dessert. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very unique. The waiter was kind and sociable. My parents enjoyed the dinner immensely and I will definitely come back to this restaurant!
Gourment cuisine with great atmosphere. Eating at Red Stag Grill is an experience. The menu provide lots of amazing choices, the wine list is extensive and the service and feel is five star but cozy not stuffy. We had the tasting menu and were please with the choices and tastes. The wine pairings complimented the food and were plentiful. The server was happy to make small modifications to accommodate preferences and the kitchen delivered exceptionally. Highly recommend for special occasion or 5 star experience.
Lovely atmosphere, you know you are in the mountains. Service was spot. The food was delicious, I had the Elk and it was tender, rich and melted in your mouth. We ended the meal with the best carrot cake I have ever had. Portions very generous. I recommend sharing. Wonderful evening.
Asked for a booth with the reservation, got a table in the far back. Waiter was so-so.. Seemed uninterested and seems we always needed a refill. Duck was perfect.. My cowboy ribeye was overly spicy, but was peppercorn. However had specifically asked when ordering about the taste and uninterested waiter assured that it was very light.. Not really. Ordered medium rare.. Was more medium to mid-well but wasn't worth sending back. Waiter wasn't attentative enough to have been practical. Half way through our meal a table was sat next to ours and he was far more alternative.. Noticeably so! Overall, was a pleasant experience if a bit loud and if you discount the waiter. Duck was perfect, should have gone next door to Ruth Chris for the steak. I'd say in the future we will choose elsewhere.
Took advantage of Restaurant Week to enjoy a fabulous meal of duck confit (oops, ate it all) with my husband ordering and loving the trout. Every meal we've had here has a great blend of tastes, service is always good and the physical menus are always a delight.
Our party of 4 dined at the Red Stag on Sunday evening to celebrate a birthday. None of us had ever been but had high hopes for a fun dining experience. Absolutely lovely! The decor is dark and Bohemian with much attention to detail. Embracing the history of the time it was built but with a nod to current lighting, etc. We all loved the LED back-lit menus! Why don't all restaurants do this? We really liked everything we ordered -fresh green salad, pumpkin soup, shrimp and grits got raves from both guys, for entrees we had trout, pork tenderloin and duck confit. All prepared with excellent sides and an eye for presentation. The carrot cake was enough all by itself to recommend this place. Try it- you will like it!
I really enjoyed my experience at Red Stag during restaurant week. Normally, I would eat at a place with this price point once/twice a year. But for restaurant week this is a great value. The shrimp and grits were really good, the Duck Confit was amazing, all topped with the Smores Pot de Creme. I will go to this place for special occasions, and every year for restaurant week.
