Last minute dinner, and chose the supper menu. Lovely food, with wines to match. ONly one of the three starters was a bit bland - rest excellent. And main course and desert excellent. Great service. Would recommend.
It was fabulous! Finished our meal and didn’t feel any pressure to leave the table. The lemon bar ice cream is awesome!
A little disappointed in the Trout. Very expensive with very little flavor. Would not recommend the trout here.
This place is great. We had reservations for four for 8:30 and one of us was running late. They accommodated us and moved the reservation for later and then when we can early they sat us. So They were very flexible with us for a Friday night and we appreciated that. The food was fantastic. It was late so we ordered tapas mostly. The salad was divine with super fresh local lettuce. The pork belly and the brisket was amazing. We also ordered the salted hot pecans and a cheese plate. Everything was to our liking and our server was attentive but not overly visible which is nice. He checked on us often and was patient with us. It’s was 420 after all. I did order one of the cocktails which was a gin martini that celebrated prince. It was outstanding. Tart, fresh with just a hint of sweetness. When I. Asheville, we will definitely be back. Thanks Rhubarb.
Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The
Great food and great service. Tile floor and hard walls reflect sound so the noise level inside is high.
Everything about our Rhubarb experience was perfect. The cocktails were phenomenal (and gorgeous), and I wanted to slowly savor every bite of every dish. The weather was nice enough to enjoy the outside seating which is uniquely positioned to take in some street performances while you dine. The wait staff was nice, accommodating, and prompt. I have Celiac, and they clearly marked the menu for me with gf options and where substitutions could be made, and were incredibly accommodating when I asked if a particular dessert could be made to be gf.
This is a must stop for anyone visiting the area.
Our waiter was exceptional! I liked the vegetarian options.
We picked Rhubarb for dinner on a girls trip to Asheville as it as highly rated on TA. The place IS really, really cool - an old building with a cool ambiance AND the service was fantastic! The food was just average - we found most places in Asheville are trying to be "foodies" and "farm to table" and miss the boat on good food. Also, the wine list was VERY limited - as it is much more of a beer town.
Wonderful restaurant! great and unique food, service staff were wonderful. Indoor has lots of ambiance...patio would be great if the stinky transients didn't gather...but the cops come and make them move
This was our second visit, and we brought special out of town visitors for a dinner reunion. Service was very good and the decor is fun, but we had forgotten how limited the menu is, and how expensive. Salads and smaller plates did well, but the two entrees we shared (chicken and bass) were both underwhelming and high priced. Probably not going back any time soon.
We had a great time sharing several of the “passing time” plates. The waiter did a great job of explaining the different options and helping us come up with a good grouping of different items. And everything was fantastic!
Love everything about Ruhbarb, from the wooden floors, walls and the open kitchen. Great atmosphere, reasonably price. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
Brunch burger is incredible.
Local farm to table menu with a variety of cocktails, wines, & beer. I had the cauliflower soup which was very tasty and we also tried the Korean spiced fish with kimchi. For dessert, we had the lemon parfait and Irish coffee. Irish coffee was lovely! We sat inside but they did have a lovely outdoor sitting area.
A fantastic taste of local flavors in the hands of master chefs. Our family had an amazing meal. Definitely leave room for dessert- they were stand outs! Asheville is full of top notch, creative restaurants & Rhubarb was one of our favorites!
The wine list need to have more red wine selections between $36 $46...
the Bread was great, however, you shouldn’t be charged for it when you order btl $50 plus on wine regardless if it is homemade. Not very customer service oriented I understand we are in the South & people abuse on it but as I said when you spend money.... judgment call/common sense should take place.
It isn’t about pricing but principal. As you well know 95% or more don’t charge for bread.
Creative combinations adjusted daily from local ingredients—well done!
Outstanding! Unpretentious. Sublime. World class. The best in town. Ingredients with integrity. Imaginative, creative and refined cooking - yet casual and true to itself and the the area. The food, service and ambience know no equal. Highly recommend!
The food was excellent. The server did not ask about saving our leftovers, which was very surprising. I had planned on the leftovers for another meal. When I inquired, she said they had been tossed & there was no offer to replace. My meal was the cassoulet so it was not like I wanted them to replace an expensive cut of meat.
Amazing food and experience. Definitely recommend it!
Very good food and ambiance. Service was excellent. Pimiento pups and half chicken were by far our favorites. Lamb ribs, oysters and pork meatballs were right behind those. Pork belly was mostly fat, hardly any substance to it, but very good if you can get over the pure fat melting in your mouth. I could but my wife could not. Duck confit was disappointing based on the portion size. I got a small leg and thigh, very tasty, just not a lot there. Great atmosphere and the cocktails were very good. Left wanting more but unfortunately still wanted more! So we walked across the street and got dessert!
The gluten-free bread at Rhubarb is the best I've ever had. The Goat Cheese appetizer was AMAZING and everything else we ate was equally as good. Our server was awesome - she was very attentive and kind. What a wonderful experience!
Amazing! World class. Could proudly sit amongst the finest restaurants in any major city around the globe! Asheville’s best!!
The pickles were too vinegar based. The sweet potato kale bowl was tasty but not worth $12. The soup was too salty. I wouldn't come here again.
Always a great experience. Welcoming staff and friendly service, followed by fantastic food and great ambiance. We enjoyed everything. The food is always bursting with flavors, fresh and local. Our wine was right on point, thanks to our servers recommendation. We will be back!
The tables are way too close to each other. Despite not being a full night we were seated at a table in the corner. The tight seating really detracted from the food.
Very creative menu. Unusual flavors. Excellent. Mice ambiance. Great service.
Great farm to table food. Wonderful wine list with interesting wines. Server was very knowledgeable and gave perfect service. Would recommend to friends.
Excellent meal, enjoyed sitting at the chef’s table, best pork loin and lamb ribs we’ve ever eaten. Duck confit and oysters were very good, but not best ever. Would absolutely go back next time we visit Asheville.
Nice dining room but the food looked much better than it tasted. There was a forty-five minute wait between courses, much too long in my opinion. The waitstaff grabbed dishes and glasses (still containing wine) off the table abruptly as they walked by and without asking first. The waiter who served us was very good though. No plans to return.
Best food I had in a long long time...What a great experience! The menu is original, the flavors are exploding and the restaurant has a great vibe. I wish I could take the restaurant back home with me. Loved the goat burrata with bread and onions and jam, loved the mackerel (not fishy at all, really well prepared), loved the walnut cake dessert. Jade our waiter was great as well, attentive and enthusiastic about the food. Only downside was the rest of the staff (not very friendly, when they sat us down and when we asked for another half glass of wine because there were residues from the bottle- yes, we know it's normal and you should straight away offer to replace it). But the overall experience was a success and the food just won all the stars. Thank you Chef.
Great atmosphere and very nice, eclectic fare. Prices were very reasonable and the service excellent. I would come back in a minute!
Visited Rhubarb for Easter brunch. The hostess was very friendly and sat us early. The food and environment was a positive one! Will definitely be back!
We had Easter brunch on the patio. Our server was delightful and didn’t rush us. She answered all our questions. The food arrived almost too fast. Everyone loved their meal. The hearty beans with confit meats, the sweet potato brioche French toast were all enjoyed. The ragout of mushrooms on flageolets was very good but just too salty for my taste. We are planning on going again for the Sunday family dinner
Our first time here. we we were there for brunch. We enjoyed the space, and the food very much. We felt it was good value as well.
The table for 2 was very small, stuck in a very small spot by the front that I normally wouldn’t accept at a restaurant of this caliber. In fact others had turned it down. We had made the reservation a week earlier., and I expected better.
But the food was excellent, and our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere wasn’t stuffy, and the overall scene was enjoyable.
Food was tasty, but way too salty.
Interesting sort of "high end rustic" decor with eclectic menu. Lots of space between tables, rare in Asheville. Food is innovative and enjoyable. The house specialty half chicken is some of the best I have ever had. Also whole trout is great. Both cooked in the wood fired oven. Appetizers are also good although some are on the small side. Outstanding service too.
The food was delish and the service great!! We loved everything ... the Burrata cheese was my favorite. Needed to order extra bread. Oh, so good!!
