The new owners now do only private events, which is too bad, as having been there long ago, it was and remains a charming place and provided excellent food and a quite bar area.

Intimate dining in a cozy setting! Boasts personable service and a diverse menu. Refreshing cocktails and good wine selection. Sadly, the 3d Ave. Bistro is (presently) only open for catered events and private parties!

I ordered Turkey Rubin. Got a Rubin with corned beef. I ate it any way and was sorry I did not say, russian on the side. It was swimming. My friends salad said spring greens and it looked like mostly iceberg.

But as we were wrapping up the evening, we were advised that was their las night in business. So sad, hate to lose a nice spot like this from our restaurant scene. Our best... More

My wife and I always stay in tune with the restaurants in our area because we own a BnB. Our perpetual favorite is this one. The service (Jennifer) and the food is sensational. She had rabbit. I had lamb. We shared dessert and we are smiling. You must eat here in Hendersonville NC.

"Farm-To-Table" done right! Chefs Partin & Salkiewicz are a blockbuster culinary team that never fail to "Wow"! Their creativity, in concept and execution is second to none in this part of the country - every plate is a visual delight; the eye-candy is second only to the flavor. The "Rabbit Spring Rolls" , listed and priced as an appetizer are... More

People had been raving about this restaurant but I didn't want the drive (a big 15 miles). I was missing out! The food was excellent and the presentation worthy of photos! Six raw oysters coupled with 6 tempura oysters accompanied by 3 delicious sauces and not one with catsup. Next was a two part lamb series with braised along side... More

We live in Hendersonville, which has numerous very good restaurants. We have eaten only a few times since the fire and new ownership. Each time we were very pleased with everything, but our recent visit topped them all: wonderful, interesting, well-prepared, delicious food; efficient, helpful wait person (with a sense of humor, on less), and the usual pleasant ambience.
