Best Spanish restaurant I've been to this side of the Atlantic. I know my Spanish food, too. Service was great. Atmosphere perfect. My only regret was not getting a chance to compliment the owners/chefs. We can't wait to return to Asheville and try more of their tapa selection, maybe before our trip to Spain in the fall to visit my... More

Wow I couldn't tell you what we ate but the food was Amazing! Ok, the pasta with squid and squid ink were fantastic. I did realize I do like octopus, I've just never had it prepared properly until I ate at Curate. We had 11 plates shared with 4 people, the food was really really really good. Our waiter seemed...

2/14/2017 - Tuesday 2:00 P M - My wife and I stop by Curate while in downtown Asheville for a nice lunch. Our waiter was very helpful and we were clueless about what to order. We ended up with the following - Brandada de Bacalao $10, taste was good but a little to salty for us, Enalsada de Invierno $12,... More

Was not familiar with the extensive menu and deferred to my waiter for selections has a fabulous array of dishes, very busy, suggest you make reservations if you don't want to wait, poor guy had 7 women to deal with did not envy his situation. Make sure you check your receipt they are so busy it can get mixed up,... More

Curate never disappoints. Consistency is the key. Their menu pretty much stays the same except for a few seasonal changes. So if you are a person who has favorite things you always like to order, this is your place. Nice atmosphere with an extended dining room in process. Love to sit at the counter and watch the chefs prepare the... More

Curate is by far one of the finest restaurants I’ve ever had the pleasure of dining at and in a bragging kind of way, I will add I’ve travelled extensively around the world. A testament to that is the waiting time to get a reservation…. not a bad thing, just something to be aware of in your planning. I’ve had... More

Great place for small plate eating. The garlic shrimp are fantastic, ham, fried zucchini all were top notch. The food is very good the atmosphere is laid back but more upscale. Peak time you need reservations it is small and gets crowded quickly.

Curate is an excellent restaurant located in downtown Asheville. My reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is not due to the food or service. Both were excellent. I wish they were more supportive of different initiatives in the area. For such a successful restaurant, they need to dig in and support the area that has really supported them. So... More

Dear Guest, I was dumbfounded when I read your review of Curate, as were many who know of all the community service work we do! I'm not sure how you got this impression of us. It's true we don't support every charitable organization, it would be impossible for us to do so. This week alone I have responded to no... More

Took the girlfriend here for Valentine's dinner. I can see what all the hype is about. Everything we had was incredible. The lamb skewers melt in your mouth. The fried eggplant with honey is unbelievable. And we really liked the trout dish the most... so much flavor in every dish! Hope to come again soon!

Wonderful Tapas . Fine wine.....Unusual menu, can't wait to get the cookbook. Great atmosphere for friends and family's evening out. Reservations difficult to get for last minute. We've been successful for later times , which is really perfect for us but not always convienient for out of town guest. Still , we love it. '
