Rhubarb, at the heart of Asheville on Pack Square, is a comfortable place for friends, families and strangers to simply lean in and enjoy the company-a place where food and drink is at its uncomplicated best. Chef John Fleer, a three time James Beard nominee for Best Chef Southeast has created a menu inspired by seasonal, local ingredients and pays homage to the bounty of regional and American cooking. A wood-fired oven and grill complement the rustic creations. Wine selections are entirely ecological and sustainable. The bar pays tribute to the early 20th century cocktail culture.
Sunday Supper, a three-course meal served at the Rhubarb family tables, is served each Sunday at 6:30. The Sunday Supper menu will be different from the regular restaurant menu and will reflect the bounty of the weekend markets presented family style. A local guest farmer will host our weekly convivial community tables. For Sunday Supper Reservations please call at 828-785-1503.

we read great reviews about Rhubarb before booking, and unfortunately we had a suboptimal experience. our waiter was not attentive and it felt as though he was at the end of his shift. moreover, we were all excited to try to campfire grille (their version of S'more's). this was, without a doubt, the worst desert any of us have tried. It is almost impossible to ruin a marshmallow, but the pastry chef managed to do just that! it tasted like butane (yes, butane). the chocolate was not tasty and we end up getting credits on our desserts because they were just not good. anyway. a lot of other places to go to in Ashville!

Truly wonderful food, drink and service. My husband, seven year-old son and I dined here while on vacation. The food was inventive enough for adults and still tasty and approachable for kids. We never needed to use the (happily offered) kid's menu! A great night from start to finish, we will return next time we are in Asheville.

This was the third time I have dined at Rhubarb, and I've been increasingly disappointed. The food is just not that good. The desserts we tried this time (s'mores & salted peanut butter ice cream) were actually inedible -- overly salty, rubbery chocolate, bitter burnt taste. You name it. The confit of duck is consistently good, else my marks for food would have been even lower. It makes me sad because the space and atmosphere are great, but I don't see eating here again.

Disappointing. We loved John Fleer at Blackberry Farm and were looking forward to another wonderful culinary experience. Rhubarb is noisy and the distressed look was depressing. The chicken was tasty but the vegetables were over salted. Scallops were ordinary. Oysters had too much breading. The bread was delicious but they charge $3 additional. The steak was good. Asheville's other restaurants were better overall.

Asheville in the summer is a really hot little city. The night we were at Rhubarb the air conditioning was not up to the task. When we complained we learned this is an on-going problem for the restaurant. Hot and LOUD did not make for a great evening.

We celebrated my wife's birthday with a weekend in Asheville and Rhubarb was certainly part of the celebration! The service was friendly and easy, the food was out of this world - truly unique dishes, often featuring locally sourced ingredients. Oh and the drinks were amazing! We dined on the outdoor terrace and enjoyed live music nearby on the street as well.

Highly rated ...didn't disappoint. Very interesting menu...food was outstanding. Service impeccable. We sat inside but at the closest table to the patio - quick a busy scene on a Friday night in Asheville. The best of both worlds ~ the nice cool air conditioned dining with the feel of the energetic Friday night buzz in Asheville. Highly recommend.

Excellent food but the service tends to wander when it gets busy. Both couples this night each shared a Goat Cheese Buratta plate, and good thing - the rich delicious cheese was two pieces each the size of a baseball - accompanied by wonderfully picked seasonal fruit and beets. The Bavette steak was tender and flavorful, and scallops and oysters a hit. They forgot our side of chanterelles until the steak was devoured, so we refused them. The open kitchen and large room gets quite frenetic as it gets busier late in the evening.

A visit to Rhubarb is always one of the highlights of our visits to Asheville. We are never disappointed. John Fleer’s creative layering of flavors and the use of seasonal ingredients take the dishes to a new level. The restaurant’s atmosphere is casual and relaxed; the wait staff friendly and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to make reservations again soon.

Our second time here. First time was a couple of years ago for brunch and we were not impressed. However, decided to try dinner and we were not disappointed. Food was delicious, service great. I am glad we were not in the main dining room which was very loud. We were inside but around corner from large dining room which was quiet and cool. Every course was amazing, such a lovely mix of flavors, cannot wait to go back.

We had one night in Ashville and my daughter found the restaurant. We picked it for the name (my mother-in-law was with us and is the only person I know who loves rubarb) and the good reviews. We really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. The cheese plate was a terrific start and the duck was really a "wow". Highly recommend if you are in the area.

Our waitress was well versed on everything on the menu. They change there menu frequently as they use items local sourced and in season. Everything we had was outstanding. We shared a 5 Cheese course, then the lightest Buckwheat flatbread and pickled vegetables, and last shared a main course of gnudi which was outstanding. Wish we lived closer to be able to go more frequently.
