Delicious! I love the warehouse, loft style feel of this underrated restaurant in the arts district. We were 5 people and after tasting everyone's dishes I can honestly say "yum". Everyone loved their filets the best. The salads can be shared by 2 if you...More

Had the best oysters for an appetizer. Really cool place in Asheville to have some really great food. We shared the filet and it was cooked to perfection. Definitely coming back to this place!

The chef must have fallen asleep at the grill. That's the only way to 'splain the fact that my "Burger Monday" cheeseburger (for which I paid $150 for two including oysters on the half shell, charred octopus, drinks, beers and dessert) came out with a...More

Made reservations for Monday night and arrive a little early. Was seated right away. Had decent beverage menu. Monday night is burger night. Fresh cut fries and the burgers were amazing. Beignets were fabulous. Turkish espresso cream topping excellent. Definitely on our routine list now.

Everything from the food to the drinks to the dessert was absolutely scrumptious. I especially recommend the charred octopus. Beautifully prepared and out of this world in terms of flavor.

I am a patron not the owner. In my opinion this probably is not the best place to take young children. The menu is geared to those looking for something out of the ordinary. For burgers try Farm Burger. They are more family... More
