                                                              Food was yummy and service was on point. But paying over $20 for 2 leafs of lettuce, 3 pieces of small shrimp and some strawberries was a deal breaker. I am native to Asheville, I’ve been here 26 years, and went with my mom who has lived here since 1980. We both will not be recommending the salads at Table to anyone.

Great cocktails. The wine list is extensive. The wines by the glass are numerous and varied. Several of the main courses could be ordered in smaller portions. The service was attentive. Hope to go back soon.

We had a nice table right in front of the windows. Our wine was great, the food delicious and our server was adorable. We look forward to visiting again when we come up from Atlanta to visit our granddaughter and our new grandson! Thank you for a lovely evening!

                                                              FIRST TIME AND IT'S ON MY TOP 10! I'm a local and a "foodie" and thoroughly enjoyed this little gem of a restaurant. I would definitely return! It's a bit pricey but the quality of the food and uniqueness of the ingredients were worth the price. 2 glasses of wine, 2 appetizers and 1 dinner - $120. I am a small eater and got 2 appetizer/small plates, which were plentiful for me. My friend got a dinner and she grabbed a "to go" box. Every bite was delicious. We split the asparagus with French-style potato salad with roasted garlic. This dish was done to perfection. I had Steak Tartare as my main and felt that the portion was just right. The wonderful roasted bread was a bit salty (but I like salt). The egg was done to perfection. My friend had the roasted chicken with dumplings. It had beautiful broccoli rabe and the chicken was done to perfection as well. Wait staff was friendly, didn't rush you and knew the ingredients, making objective recommendations. Don't pass this one up!

The Osso Bucco was prepared with a variety of unusual veggies and was full of flavor. I also had a interesting bourbon cocktail which was also unique. A little bit loud.

                                                              I am not sure why this restaurant is not at the top of every list of best restaurants in Asheville. We ate at several highly rated places during our visit the week of April 28, and while other places were good, Table was the best. The service, food, ambience, and wine list were all top notch. Locals recommended Table to us and we are so glad we opted to go in place of one of the more touristy spots.

                                                              Best bread I’ve ever eaten! Really fantastic food. We did send one dish back because it was incredibly salty (and I love salt!), and they were incredibly gracious about it. Service was great and picked up the pace after a slow start (about 20 min from time of seating to first cocktail). I would absolutely make this a top spot, and I’ve been to many of the best in AVL.

So glad we all ordered dishes with the understanding that we would all be sharing family style. And don't forget desserts. Very very happy with our dining experience. Note: Save this for a group. The noise level is not conducive to intimate conversations.

There is a selection of unique cocktails to start your meal. We didn't have an appetizer or salad, but there were great choices that tempted us. The chicken and dumplings are not traditional, but oh so delicious - maybe the best roasted chicken I have ever had. My husband had a sea bass dish that he raved about. We ended with a creative strawberry shortcake inspired dessert that was like nothing we had ever had before. If you are looking for an inspired take on dining and great quality local ingredients, this is the place.

                                                              Honestly, had such high hopes based on the reviews but not impressed. Ambiance not pleasant (crowded and unattractive). Was expecting rustic but pretty, not so much. Waiter not very welcoming or friendly, a bit indifferent. Selection limited. Food was very over priced for the amount received (left hungry and ordered full entrees for over $30 each) and the taste was nothing spectacular. Won't try again.
