The Bull and Beggar Ratings and Reviews

The B&B makes itself out to be an electic dining lodge experience, but falls short in only one cruticial way. Set inside the River Arts District, the building sets the tone for a magnificent meal. The menu is widly imaginative and begs the newcomer to induldge in it's horrific a la carte options. Simply stated, so much like a begger might advise, the flavor isn't good. The palate is dull and while it may seem like a neighborhood farm to table restaurant, the unique food items seemed prescribed. I have no issue paying upwards of $30-$40 for a steak, and will gladly pay $15 for a proper cocktail. The Bull and Begger glamorizes itself as an upscale local hangout. Please folks, don't waste your time at this akwardly pretentious over priced restaurant.

The menu was very interesting in that most dishes either had a non-standard interpretation of standard items or were not-so-standard items. All were presented beautifully and those that we sampled were well prepared and very tasty. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient making for a very enjoyable experience overall.

Went there for the Monday night hamburger. I don't know what they do, but the hamburger is like no other. Soft, yummy, perfect. They also have my favorite cocktail, the High Five. You better make reservations on Monday nights. Great atmosphere with fast, professional service. Can't wait to go back.

I guess you guys are going for a fine dining type of vibe but I ended up paying over $100 for a very minute serving of food for two. The food was pretty good but not $100 good. I think that's the first time in my life I have paid that much for dinner. I'm just a simple working man so I guess I'm not in your demographic. The point is, I would like to see larger servings for that kind of money.

A gem of a restaurant. Great craft cocktails as well as an interesting wine and beer selection. Food was epic. If we lived in Asheville, this would be a regular spot for us. If you want to experience what the Asheville food scene is about, this is the spot.

Super spot. We reserved a table for dinner on a Monday night which we did not realize was the special hamburger night. Almost everyone dining was having the burger which we ordered along with a lobster roll. The burger and fries were awesome. The lobster roll had an abundance of lobster and was served with super (but salty) home made potato chips. Recommend a visit. It was a little hard to find. Service was perfect.

We always really enjoy the Bull and Beggar. The food is excellent and very artfully prepared. Our one complaint is that the liquor and wine in overpriced and under poured as compared to just about everywhere else in the Asheville area.

Wow! Food was miraculous, just so lovely in every detail. The menu may seem intimidating, but never fear, you will find the food to be familiar and comfortable and absolutely fresh and thoughtful; we all wanted to take our time to taste everything slowly, the flavors and presentation were just so luxurious. The service was perfect, too--just present enough when you needed something; knowledgable, passionate about the food, but not at all obtrusive.
The wine list is stunning. I think one should dine there every night to try something new on the food menu and work one's way through the wines. Could be a great way to spend the summer months!
Atmosphere, service, wine, everything--even down to the lighting and the spacing of the tables--was perfect. Thanks for a great evening!

Unique menu but then again, I haven't had much French cuisine. My wife and I tried several different small bites, salads so we could try a lot. As a result, we didn't order an entrée which all looked wonderful on nearby tables. Treat yourself. Give this restaurant a try. You'll be glad you did.

Our meal, from appetizer to salad to main entree.....was WAY over salted. The filet, while done to requested temperature, was so salted it was close to non-edible.
I would not recommend this venue. We are Asheville residents.

Delightful as usual...from seating to service , drinks amazing...topped off by the food. If you can WOW my former chef/restaurant owner b-in-law, that's saying a lot. Loved everything about it and recommend highly.

It had been a while since we had been at Bull and Beggar. The menu was fresh, the rest remained the same. This is on the top of our Asheville list. Service was great. We tried new and favorite small plates and entrees, all was prepared to perfection.
It won't be as long before we are back. Love this place.
Bull and Beggar is just consistently exc ...
Bull and Beggar is just consistently excellent. Medium sized plates to split are a great way to try the variety of unusual dishes they put together. But...that being said, their steaks are beyond great. Thanks to all the staff, they are excellent at what they do and so friendly.

That beef tartar! The filet! The cocktails! Best Negroni I've ever had, hands down. The croutons in the leaf lettuce salad were made to order and were surprisingly amazing, highlight of the salad. My only regret was not having a few more stomachs so we could've tried the charred octopus, the pork rinds, or dessert...
Overall disappointed, I'd give it a 2 out of 5
Everything was so salty I could hardly eat it. Had the filet mignon and it was overcooked and a tad on the tough side. This restaurant is owned and operated by the same people that run the Admiral here in Asheville so my expectations were high and needless to say I was let down. There was three of us dining and the bill including tip was $180 I doubt we will return to this establishment.

The experience was incredible. We had charred octopus, swordfish and filet. All delicious and cooked to perfection. Neat location in the River Arts District. Already telling our friends they have to try it.

Excellent food, great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. Our only objection was that we showed up for a 7:30 reservation, but weren't seated until a little after 8. Not a big deal, but a little frustrating.
Not Worth the Money
4 person dinner (2 younger teenagers). Nothing on menu for younger folk. Too many "chef's choices" (waiter had no idea what could be included). Highly overpriced. Waiter seemed put out whenever a request was made. Would not recommend, and certainly would not recommend for anyone younger than 20. 4 people, 1 appetizer, 2 glasses of wine: $200
