Red Stag Grill-Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville Ratings and Reviews
The food was excellent but our experience was less than savory due to a very non-attentive server. We had gotten engaged hours before or dinner and were very much looking forward to celebrating and left upset after the experience. From what we gathered, this was not true to the majority of the establishment as other wait staff seemed to be very friendly and engaging. It's a shame we got unlucky on our special night.
We enjoy the Red Stag every time we are in town. Consistently good and one of the best restaurant/bar ambiances in town. Our bartender went out of his way to make our pre-dining experience a pleasure even setting up our table in advance for us with having our decanted wine prepared and ready when we sat down to eat. Our server was not as attentive and knowing it was our anniversary it disappointed us a little that we received not the standard quality service we have come to expect from this wonderful restaurant. All told, the food was great (except the asparagus resotto) and the carrot cake was one of the best we've had.
Everything was wonderful. The food in particular was fabulous: presentation, tastes, the whole experience. With such fine food, I expected a more extensive wine list. What we found was very, very fine. We simply had a limited range. The experience was bordering on A+.
It was supposed to be our anniversary dinner, but was a significantly frustrating experience. Drink I ordered was very odd tasting and being a bartender in the past I don't think it was measured correctly as it lacked the proper amount of whiskey. I instead sent back the drink nearly full and asked for a glass of wine (which the server couldn't describe other than everyone likes it). Also when we placed our order for an appetizer, our waiter returned about 7 minutes later and asked if we wanted to order an appetizer even though we had just told him. Our waiter was odd and described the items in a very confusing way. He mentioned he was new at it, but did not know the menu well enough. I ordered the elk medium rare and wife ordered the trout. Waiter also mentioned multiple times he would return with bread but never did. Steak came out sliced in 3 pieces for presentation and was obviously well done. Asked it to be remade and had to wait for over 10 minutes while my wife ate dinner. During the time of our experience here I saw the food and beverage manager horsing around with staff in plain view of all the customers loud enough for me to hear across the restaurant. She finally brought the elk out and I asked why she had sent the well done one originally and she just brushed off the question and told me to try the elk and she would come right back; she never returned. No manager ever came to our table. Food was bland at best. It should have been a sign that the restaurant was dead for Mother's Day. Wife wasn't happy with her fish since it was described oddly and wasn't what she wanted as well as tasting off. Was surprised to notice they went ahead and charged me for my drink I sent back. All in all one of the worst dining experiences I've had. Andrea the food and beverage manager should not be in her position if she is going to mess around with staff making inappropriate noises and not paying attention to the food being prepared. We will Never return.
Sumptuous environment. Restaurant manager graciously accommodated our request to reduce the totally unpleasant "happening" music that was reverberating throughout the dining room and competing, as well, with the live musician in the bar area (who was using far too much electronic amplification). We were there, after all, to enjoy our repast as we conversed with each other; one should not have to speak in an overly loud voice for the person across the table to hear you. If I wanted to go to a nightclub, I would have done that, but I wanted a meal. The server's wine r commendation was good. My quail appetizer was awesome. The elk loin might have awesome as well had it, the vegetables, and the potatoes even approached room temperature. The server was not to be found at this point. The reduction served with the elk was exquisitely done, albeit somewhat tepid. I suspect that my plate sat around for a while while waiting for my guest's meal to be plated. There's a great deal of potential at this restaurant, but it just was not realized that night.
We were staying at the hotel for two nights and had reservations the second night for a restaurant in the village. We had been in town five weeks earlier and had stayed at the Omni and loved the restaurants there but not the room. We decided to eat at the Red Stag to compare. The Red Stag was a nice restaurant. The antlers everywhere were fun. Service was fine. We were seated back in a corner but that wasn't a problem. I had the halibut and my husband had the whole trout. I had a salad and my husband had chowder. I had two glasses of wine and my husband had two local beers. Our bill was $174. Not out of line and very comparable to our meal at the Sunset Terrace but the view and service level were not at the same level. My husband's trout looked very interesting and he really liked his. My halibut was a bit dried out but not a problem. My salad must have been okay but I really don't remember it.
We ate breakfast in the Red Stag both mornings as part of a package I bought. $41 would have been excessive if not part of the package. Again...service was adequate but not great. We were stuck in the far back corner the second day again! She would have moved us but just seemed weird since it wasn't busy at all in the mornings.
The rest of the services at the hotel were OUTSTANDING.
Outstanding food and service. A very nice, quiet atmosphere perfect for dining and conversation. A true Asheville gem that hasn't really been discovered yet. We have had lunch, brunch, and dinner here and all have been wonderful experiences. And extra benefits are being able to stroll through the art gallery before or after your meal and then cross the street and be in Biltnore village.
I was very disappointed in this fancy expensive restaurant. If you like stuffed animal heads EVERYWHERE this place is for you.
But more importantly, the food was pedestrian. I had a Caesar salad that bore no resemblance to any Caesar I've had before. Romaine with an unremarkable vinaigrette. Not worth finishing. I had a $34 ribeye steak that was served warm. It was nothing more than a common supermarket steak. My wife's Elk loin was better but also served warm. The vegetables were fine.
Overall, simply nothing special; fancy place with mediocre food; good service.
We were in Asheville to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the Red Stag had been recommended to us from a friend at home. It is a very cozy restaurant. We each had a Caeser salad that was very good. My husband ordered the bison, which he found to be acceptable. I ordered the filet, medium rare and was terribly disappointed. The filet was quite tough...we are accustomed to steak that literally melts in your mouth. For the amount that we paid for this meal, I was quite displeased, and would not visit this restaurant again.
We celebrated a 24th wedding anniversary there, no comparison to other establishments that in the past would provide a card or complimentary desert, nothing and nothing special. Not likely to go back for a special occasion, but if staying at the hotel again and didn't feel like going out, may go back for that reason.
My hotel guest recommended the restaurant. The décor was a bit heavy and dark and I would recommend changing the window dressings and the napkin color. If you like a sporting lodge look use white or a plaid with red and gray.The bar area was more upbeat and the bar menu was very good, particularly the salads and the fried green tomatoes. Cocktails were generous, visually appealing and well-made. The home-made vermouth needs more zing. Breakfasts in the main restaurant were especially well presented and tasty, particularly the Eggs Benedict, which we ordered two days in a row and which came each day on different plates, which we thought was a nice touch. An all-around winner, a real "10" was the grits - perfectly seasoned and textured. For our main dinner I ordered the duck which was a large portion configured with equally generous amounts of vegetables. While cooked perfectly, I recommend you use a breast with more fat. Our server suggested I pair with a zinfandel and it was a good match. Also the choice of blueberry port as a dessert drink complemented the dinner. Overall very good dining experiences at this restaurant.
On the recommendation of friends, we tried the Red Stag Grill for our 38th anniversary. They did not let us down. Everyone was very friendly (not always true at high end restaurants). A novel feature I had not seen before was that the menus were back-lit, which was perfect for a dark room. Since we were on the road and had no way to deal with leftovers, we split a salad and the meal. There were no complaints and no split fee. They have a good wine list with some very good wines available by the glass. We had the Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc, which went very well with our scallops. The food was well prepared and presented. Saving the best for last, they comp'd our dessert in honor of our anniversary. The carrot cake was excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Red Stag Grill, and may dine there again when we return to Asheville.
I took my sitser in law and her husband to Easter Brunch. Brian was our waiter and he was very attentive and friendly. The Bluepoint oysters appetizer were to die for, however our entree the "ultimate eggs benedict was very rare for the tenderloin cut and both my sister in law and I sent it back to be cooked more, (we both ordered medium for the meat) The dessert was again a smash hit with generous portions! The dining room was superb! Regards, BRS
One of the best meals we've had since moving to the Asheville area some 4 years ago!
From the moment we walked into the Bar/Restaurant we were not disappointed. The way we were treated at the bar to the gastronomic delight at dinner it was a sublime experience. Our cocktails were perfect, the roasted pear salad's flavor was a delightful mix of buttered pecans, raspberries, corn bread croutons, blue cheese crumbles and a sherry fig vinaigrette dressing was just about perfect! Our entrees of the mountain trout and the elk loin were expertly prepared, presented and enjoyed to the very last bite. If you've never experienced elk loin, this is the place to do it! Our complements to Chef Scott and his wonderful staff! Well done guys!! Looking forward to dining with you again, soon.
The food was outstanding. The ambience was spectacular. The service was great. Server was extremely helpful and accommodating to whatever we requested. We never felt rushed even when we were the last people in the restaurant. We also met the Chef who was very personable and experienced. We will definitely be back.
We visited the restaurant for an anniversary dinner. Our experience was mixed. The diners beside us were speaking normally, but we could clearly hear their conversation. Some of the tables were very close together. Our waiter was attentive, so the service was good. My husband and I both had the she-crab soup, which was delicious. My husband's elk was prepared perfectly. I can not say the same for my scallops, however. They were not seared well and had a "fishy" taste. There were three medium scallops on the plate surrounded by a lot of vegetables. I do not mind spending money on excellent food, and we have dined in more expensive restaurants, but this dish did not seem worth the price of the entree.
