Rhubarb Ratings and Reviews
We were here for restaurant week. It was clear the chef was overwhelmed. The first course was a shrimp dish which was ok. I had gnocchi for my main which was nothing great. My husband had a dish that was supposed to be chicken but was flavorless and looked awful. The chocolate dessert was alright and they brought us champagne because the wait for the food was extremely long. I would never go back because the food was awful. Great ambience though.
Recently went to this highly reviewed restaurant in Asheville. Loved it!!!
Food fresh and expertly prepared with much care. Wait staff knowledgeable and very competent. Loved the farm to table---TRUE farm to table food. You can taste the difference.
Will definitely go back here on next trip to Asheville.
Loved Rhubarb's - worth every dime! We have been here twice and find it wonderful every time. The staff is very good, friendly without being too involved in our conversation. The food is different and interesting - we always find a new flavor or something to experience, but also offers the comfort foods.
Server was very knowledgeable wreckfish was chewy. Oyster Benton was over powered by cornbread, menu was very creative. Most expensive meal ever at $300 for 5 plus tip. That included apps, drinks bottle wine and 5 deserts. With all the restaurants in town would try another next time.
My husband and I have eaten at Rhubarb many times before when visiting Asheville and enjoyed the fresh choices of meat and veggies on the menu. On this visit there where several things that happened to make it less enjoyable. We arrived on time for an early dinner reservation. We were seated near the hostess station at an 8 top table split into two four tops adjacent to the kitchen traffic. The bustling traffic from the servers and loud conversations from our table partners were a definite distraction from the food experience. Our server was attentive and efficient, but I felt like I was being rushed to make decisions on my food and drinks the entire time. We had cocktails and two appetizers which were good followed by our main dishes. I chose the pork tenderloin served over peas for my entre. The pork had been brined overly much and the sauce meant to complement the meat was too sweet. Rhubarb on this recent night was a less than stellar dining experience. Despite the issues I would give it another try if visiting Asheville again. Advance reservations are highly recommended for night.
First the good news: This is a classic Asheville fine dining location, with an eclectic menu, a slightly Bohemian vibe and the food is excellent. The trout was actually the whole fish, you don't see that much anymore. The duck was falling off the bone and meaty. Great white wine selection. Unfortunately, the wait staff was overwhelmed by the large crowd and our wine bottle disappeared for a time. Now, I don't like to jump to conclusions, but we paid cash for the meal and our change was short by $20.00. The reaction of the wait person and the way she seemed to know exactly how much it was short led me to believe this may not have been an accident. So if you pay cash here, count your change.
Delicious, seasonal ingredients are expertly and thoughtfully prepared here. This is farm-to-table dining at its best, and the knowledgeable staff rounded out an excellent experience that was, in short, a foodie's paradise. The impressive variety of local cheeses was a great starter, and the pastry chef offered up some exquisite seasonal delights as well. We hope to return soon!
We went here as guests to the city, and picked it based on reviews.
The ambience was so cute. Could be good for cocktails!
Our server was wonderful, she was patient with us and gave great advice. She was very sweet to my parents.
Speed of food from order to the table was great, too. We appreciated that.
The bad part was the food itself. Three of us ordered the trout - I love trout! - but it was incredibly salty. One person got the pork collar, and she recommends that if you're up for it!
We all got dessert to try to remedy the trout, but that was lackluster as well. The apple dessert was underwhelming and bland. So bland. It was a huge disappointment.
Again, I'd love to come back for a cocktail! I'll just be sure to eat beforehand.
Probably the best service I'v ever had. Food options were great and everything was unique and very good. The noise level was perfect, quite enough to have a conversation at a normal volume but loud for other to not hear your conversation (if that makes sense). I would certainly recommend trying this place if want unique high quality food and great service.
Had the chicken dish. Meat was decent, but didn't like sauce or sides. Friend had the steak that was covered in an overbearing seasoning. Service was not great at the table. Bar service was good. Overall, I was not impressed. Posana stays at the top of my Asheville list.
My friend and I were celebrating my recent graduation from graduate school, and a late birthday for me as well. I've recently moved to Seattle, WA, and this was my first time back in Asheville since the move. We selected Rhubarb for brunch on this particular day, because we wanted somewhere the two of us hadn't yet been together in Asheville. The service was great, our food was great, and we really enjoyed our experience. I know she'll definitely eat there again in future visits to Asheville, and I hope to be back to try some of the other delicious sounding items in the future as well.
I loved Rhubarb! It was by far the best dinner we had while we were in Asheville! I HIGHLY recommend it. We got all kinds of the small plates to share between two people so we could try all different things. I felt that was a great way to taste a lot of what Rhubarb has to offer since so much of their menu looks impeccable. Their cocktails were amazing also! Everything was so well done and attention to detail was very apparent and I really appreciated that!
