Staff so wonderful. Saved a quite corner table for my birthday dinner. We ate there during the Biltmore restaurant week so they had a special set menu. choices were great, price was good value. Fun and friendly staff. Décor reflected their name.

The food was good bit give this place a good review because we were mischarged. The menu said $35 for three course meal. We were charged an $16 for desert. When we asked to see the menu we were told to check online. So we checked after leaving and found that we were indeed mischarged. When we called em out they refunded us the $16 but no consideration to tax or tip value. In retrospect should of made them refund full amount and re-calculated the tip.

We visited during "Biltmore Week" so the menu was somewhat limited. However; the choices were varied and we found things we liked very much. The octopus salad was outstanding. The service was good, the ambiance was good. A very pleasant evening at one of our favorite spots.

They explained that it was biltmore week, thus a limited menu. I'm of greek heritage and am quite familiar with the cuisine. I ordered their chicken dish, my escort the brisket. The chicken
dish was a very small portion, quite greasy, and far from what I would consider good value. The brisket was tough. No I would not go back for the meal that they served.

Since discovering this place on our first visit to Asheville, we have returned on every visit. The food and service have been great. It keeps us from discovering other eating establishments in the area. Unfortunately, on this trip, we had a bad experience with the server. If he was new, he should have had a mentor taking him through the evening. Errors were so bad that, if the food wasn't so magnificent, we would not return. Note that on five previous visits, the service and servers were great. We will continue to be patrons and cheerleaders of this establishment.

Our favorite special occasion restaurant for years slipped a couple of notches tonight. Romaine salad full of grit like it was not properly washed. Chewy brisket; I've had better in a good deli sandwich. Forgettable baklava dessert. Overly solicitous server who was so loud, we stopped our conversation each time he recited tonight's specials to nearby tables. Our tablemates wrote a terse review of disappointment on their credit card receipt. Restaurants have off nights (half-empty on a Saturday night - uh oh), so we'll give them another chance in the future. But, not anytime soon.

The food could have been great but wasn't. My wife had what we assumed would be a light ravioli in a mascarpone. I was swimming in liquid. It was just heavy handed. The right idea but I think they thought more is better.
I had lamb shank that was a little dry. It tasted like the end of the night, and it was. I still think food should be as edible at the end of the evening as it is at the start.
All said I'd still go again to see if it was a one time deal. I liked the place and the food was made with the right ingredients. The execution was a miss.

We recommended Rezaz’s to our business associate and he decided to accept our advice. Not only did he come but he invited another couple. The evening was splendid. Everything from greetingin, table service all the way to dessert was exceptional.

Always fun to eat at Rezaz! Loved the lamb appetizer built for two and found the trout to be very good-and I rarely order trout. Solid, dependable and run well, this one never disappoints. The effort made in the kitchen carries over to very fresh, flavorful food.

Rezaz's did it again. But I have come to expect no less. We have been coming to this restaurant for years. Always outstanding. Know it has changed hands - but experience was flawless. Food is simply delicious and inventive. Service was outstanding.

Visiting Asheville for the weekend and decided to not eat at the "big inn" where we were staying and try something in town. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food preparations and the overall atmosphere.

Amazing meal-We decided to eat tapas style so we could try more dishes. For appetizers we tried the lamb plater, octopus, rezaz meza plater and a special of heirloom tomatoes with a burrata cheese. The octopus was so amazing we ordered a second plate. All the dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. We also tried a side of roasted mushroom that were superb, and a kale fettosh salad that was very good. In addition we split a special of cod that was complex and perfectly presented as well as the trout. We had a lovely bottle of Cote Rhone and felt that we had dined at a 5 star French restaurant serving mediterranean food. Service was superb. No room for desert as we relished the last bite of this feast. The price was very fair for the complexity and abundance of food.

Everything was great! Exceptional service and unique flavor combinations! You must leave room for dessert! The pastry chef / co-owner is a genius! If the Belgian pot de crème is on the menu, GET IT! We even ordered two to go a few nights later after dining at a restaurant with limited dessert options.

Excellent authentic Middle-Eastern food. New owners are doing a wonderful job of blending ingredients and spices (not hot) to produce unique flavors and textures in the dishes. Began with a special combining southern and the Middle East - Spiced and Cornmeal Crusted fried whole okra with a yogurt based remolaude. Outstanding. The service is always professional, friendly and knowledgeable.

Nice atmosphere but food was below average. Definitely would not go back. This restaurant was recommended to us by a person that has not been there in 7 years. We talked with some locals the following day and they informed us that restaurant has went down hill over the years. Oh well, we gave it try!! Our server was below average which did not help with the lousy food. Too many good restaurants in Asheville, so we do not recommend Rezaz.

I was treated to lunch by my son's SO and it was delightful. The bento box lunch was delicious and we had excellent service. The salmon was moist, tender, and perfectly seasoned. The chocolate torte was melted in our mouths and the cherry sorbet was divine. Couldn't ask for a better lunch date.

We had a great dinner at Rezaz with friends visiting Asheville for the first time.
Our waitress was the key to helping us successfully select a series of plates to share
and pacing their arrival perfectly.
We especially enjoyed the Calamari & Shrimp, the Lamb and the grilled Roman Caesar
Per my request in booking on Open Table, we were seated in a private alcove where
we could enjoy a conversation.
Revaz is my first choice for lunch or dinner whenever we visit Asheville.

I have been to a lot of good Mediterranean restaurants in the U.S. and Europe. Rezaz stands out in upscale decor at reasonable prices, very good service, and interesting and inventive menu, and great ambience. I was very pleasantly surprised.

Rezaz consistently serves gourmet food in a sophisticated environment. Our waiter was knowledgeable and efficient. The mixed drinks were not watered down and the duck my wife ordered and the scallops I ordered were cooked to perfection. A very good restaurant.

The octopus app was really good (I'm not a huge creamy slaw fan, but I just ate around it). Hubby had the smoked duck and it was great. I had Paella, and loved it. Wine was a good price and great. We had great service from Doc (or its was Joe/George depending when we asked lol). Overall great food, great service, great experience.
