                                          We were driving in to Asheville and chose The Overlook as it was in the hotel where were staying. The main problem is that the restaurant was entirely closed at the time that I made reservations. We ended up eating at the bar and it was fine, but the business should be more consistent with the accuracy of their hours.

                                          This place had a low sanitation grade service and food were all bad. This place was NOT a high end restaurant as advertised. Don't waste your time.

                                          Breakfast was excellent. Wait staff was very attentive. The made-to-order omelet was very good. The view of the snow on golf course was spectacular. Great place for families. We really enjoyed our stay...

                                          Rate as top best of best. Stayed during 8-10 inch snow storm. Excellent food. Outstanding service at resort bar. Very attentive and courteous dining room service. Perfect rooms to stay in. View out of room was spectacular.

                                          The evening was great. The restaurant is away from all the noise and bustle, which is what we wanted. The only complaint I would voice is the lighting was a bit bright for evening dining. I’m an interior designer so I notice these things. Evening dining should be toned down abs cozy feeling. The lights themselves were beautiful but just put a dimmer on! Our server, manager, and food were wonderful. So I give 5 stars because those things are what matters in the end.

                                          Food was great. Not many people there. Wish waiter had sat us away from the three other tables where customers were just to have more privacy. With a big room and just a few customers, I felt I could overhear what everyone was saying because they put us all so close to one another. Other than that, it was a great time and great food and drinks.

                                          The photo on Open Table showing beautiful mountains IS NOT a photo taken from this restaurant or hotel. If you’re looking for that view it is not to be found around this hotel. Our server was wonderful and fun and the food was good.

                                          Food was horrid. Choices were minimal. It took the waiter three trips to get my order correct. My wife’s order was tasteless. This was an awlful experience.

                                          Not as scenic as we expected. Food was ok but it was a long drive that wasn’t worth it. We expected to get a Mountain View but it was just a big grassy field.

                                          The food was served in large portions and absolutely delicious. The service was excellent. Would recommend and plan to visit again in the near future.

                                          Even though a reservation with note of a special occasion and seat preference we were asked to wait in bar. It was very chaotic. The waiter was not friendly and the manager was unorganized and quite unfriendly. The food was reasonably priced. But I would NOT recommend this place for anything besides a quick bite to eat.

                                          We arrived for our breakfast reservations only to find the restaurant is closed and they are just serving breakfast from the bar in the hotel lobby. We were very disappointment and left to go somewhere else - but this is the only way I could leave a comment.

                                          Taste like simple hotel food, was nothing to get excited about. Had to send a drink back to the bar, however, service was great.

                                          My husband and I made our first visit to Asheville for Valentine's weekend and had a dinner reservation here on February 13th. The hotel itself seemed nice (we stayed somewhere else), but the restaurant was chaotic. The staff was running around as if they weren't expecting a crowd and lots of people were trying to get in. Fortunately we were seated quickly with our reservation but were dissatisfied with our service and food. We had water spilled on our table, which happens, but it took the server three visits to our table before it was finally cleaned up (we had no napkins on the table to get ourself). The menu was very limited, which I had already read. The Valentine's weekend special was surf and turf (shrimp and 4 oz fillet mignon). The shrimp was just cocktail shrimp smothered in sauce and the steak was undercooked, not worth the $30. My husband said his NY strip was too salty and the worst he's ever had. To top it off, I ordered a $7 glass of house wine and that is what I received, but I was charged $13 on the receipt. We were so ready to get out, we just paid it- not worth sticking around for $6. I will likely not return, even if I stay in the hotel.

                                          Overall good dinner, but service was slow & food was overpriced. Our drinks (ordered before appetizer) came as we were eating dinner due to a glitch in the machine(??). The French onion soup was good but I wasn’t expecting a slice of Swiss cheese on it - not how it’s traditionally made. I got the surf & turf special - the steak was delicious. My husband got the chicken plate - the potatoes & green beans were good but the chicken was clearly a frozen then heated meat. Kind of a standard overpriced hotel restaurant. Would recommend if you’re in a bind or other options are lacking.

                                          It was Christmas. The restaurant did not have enough servers. I think also they didn't did not have enough cooks. We waited over an hour to get our food. This was not the fault of the servers. The servers were working really really hard. The food was very mediocre.

                                          It was Christmas evening. we had reservations. When we arrived we were greeted and seated immedi, but was told.they were short staffed and to please be patient. the waitress came by about 15 minutes in, took our drink order and a small plate entree (to eat as an appetizer. it NEVER came. One hour later we are still waiting on our food. i went to complain to the host, he said he would mention it to the server. She came.toward our table, looked me in the eye and stopped at the table bezside of us (who had been seated after us and already had their drinks ) We left w/o eating. the host did not charge us for the two beers, and he was very professional I will say that she could have have handed our table off to the other waitress who only had 3 tables. needless to say, I won't go back, even for the view

                                          Restaurant is only serving indoors in hotel lobby. It’s completely empty. You have to ring a bell for someone to come help you. I only found this out after asking front desk staff even though they’d seen me wandering around looking lost. Don’t bother going here. We left.

                                          We set up reservation and when we got there the nice big overlook restaurant was closed for cleaning and we had to sit out by bar area. Very dissatisfied with this. Food was good and service was very good for the value.

                                          We had a large party and were having difficulty finding somewhere to accommodate 13 people. Overlook set up 2 tables side by side- 7 and 6. It was perfect. Food was delicious and service was great.

                                          Overlook is a joke. There is no view. Food was average. Dining area reminded me of a state park.

                                          The waitress was not knowledgeable about the menu. She told us that the pork chop came with an apple chutney; however, it came out with Dijon “gravy.” When I asked about the chutney, she said “oh, I was wrong.” The collards were extremely dry. I asked for pepper vinegar. She brought malt vinegar instead. It was a terrible eating experience, but gave our groups a lot of good laughs. I would never recommend this place!

                                          To begin with we had no reservation because the restaurant was CLOSED by the time we got there. It is inside a hotel and the person there served us a couple of sandwiches and was very nice and mentioned this is was not the only time OPEN TABLE sent people there on a wild goose chase. We ended up having a mediocre hotel, even though the view was nice within the hotel compound. Please check your recommendations next time.

                                          Staff wore gloves they didn’t change out. Our server pulled down her mask every time she had to speak to us. Food: gross cafeteria food. Kid’s Mac n cheese definitely comes from a box. “Roasted chicken” dish was two dried out chicken cutlets, not the rotisserie it implies.
