We had an early dinner at Curate. It was amazing! We took our waiters recommendation to order three dishes per person and get a variety of food. It was just the right amount. The white asparagus with light air-like mayonnaise melted in your mouth, the crispy eggplant with local honey drizzled over it was irresistible, and the potato salad with... More

Stumbled upon this place while walking around downtown Asheville. I'm sure glad I did! Reasonable priced, fair portion sizes and excellent service. Don't let the menu scare you! A lot of items on the menu I was unfamiliar with, but was guided through the menu and every dish received was perfect! The piquillo stuffed peppers, shrimp, and tuna sandwich were... More

We loved our first experience with Curates. While the restaurant has been highly recommended by a local, the quality of the food along with exceptional service exceeded our expectations.

My first time here and I was very impressed. The atmosphere is great, our server Mike was informative, friendly, attentive and just an overall great addition to our experience. We ordered the fried cod, which was truly amazing, the squid, which was not in the traditional presentation, but turned out to be the best prepared squid we have ever had.... More

Truly one of the best meals I've had in a long time (and I'm from New Orleans!!). We started the meal with tomato bread and jamon. SO simple, SO delicious!! Continued on with the lamb with Moorish spices and the albondigas...to die for (especially the albondigas! Ask for bread! You'll want to sop up EVERY bit of that sauce)! And... More

What a delightful experience creating a memorable event. The event staff was so professional. She stayed in touch and made useful suggestions. We were able to substitute dishes. Exceptional food was served family style one dish at a time very unobtrusively and efficiently. The room was comfortable, sounds muted, and there was space to move around to visit. I had... More

It was hard to decide what to order. Everything sounded so good. But we made some interesting selections and washed them down with excellent sangria. People sitting near us made it even nicer as we all conversed. Reserve well in advance!

Food is fantastic! The experience is wonderful! My husband and I have been here twice.... the first time was for our honeymoon last year ( my daughter-in-law gave us a gift card to eat here). Neither one of us had ever had Spanish food before this experience. We fell in love with it! So on our first anniversary, last weekend,... More

My wife has allergies to gluten, soy, milk and eggs. Every time that we have come here the waiter has gone through and circled all the items that she can eat (side note they have no soy in anything on the menu). The food is always excellent and they have recently expanded so waiting is as much of an issue.... More
