Visited Curate on our first night in Asheville. We did not have a reservation so we got there early, before the dinner crowd. We still had a 30 minute wait and ended up with a couple seats at the bar. Turns out- we wouldn't have preferred it any other way. We had a great view of the food preparation! The... More

The atmosphere was really nice. Dimmed lighting, upbeat friendly servers, the food was amazing, it was worth the price! The Iberico acorn fed pigs used for their bacon literally tastes like acorns! The small plates of food are shareable and by the time you get to dessert you are full because while it doesn't look like much, they add up,... More

I give very few "Excellent" ratings and I've reviewed a lot of restaurants. This one is exceptional. It's a tapas place so expect very small portions and order generously. I can recommend anything on the menu -- we ordered I think nine or 10 dishes for the five of us and every single thing was spot-on. Now a lot of... More

Every year my wife and I gather with a couple we have been friends with for over twenty years. We either meet in Boone or Asheville. This year it was Asheville. Now we have come a long way in twenty years and we have moved past beer and hamburgers therefore we always find a great restaurant to celebrate our friendship.... More

I've eaten in a lot of cities and countries, and this is one of my very favorites anywhere. My husband and I eat here all the time and there is nothing like it. The seasonal salads (believe it or not) are some of my favorite dishes here. They are always amazing and worth getting. Our other favorites are the bocadillo... More

Curate is one reason Asheville is known for unique and delicious cuisine. I've eaten here multiple times, and have never had the same thing twice. I'm not going to start repeating until I've tasted it all. We drive a couple of hours to get to Asheville, and Curate is one of our favorites!

My husband and I live in Asheville and have eaten at Curate three times. We usually save Curate for special occasions because it is in the expensive range of our budget. Curate is a topas restaurant and offer a large variety of delicious selections. We have never had a dish that wasn't delicious and unique. My husband and I have... More

This place is awesome. My city is packed with restaurants. Good ones. Some really, really good. And new ones are popping up all the time. But if Curate was one of them, I can honestly say that I'd skip over almost all of these places until I was done sampling each item on the menu. Twice. Everything we tried was... More

Reserved a table for 2 for a Friday night over the Christmas holidays. Seems all of Asheville is massively busy that time of year, so we were glad we had reservations. The restaurant is relatively small, but in line with many others in the area downtown. We were seated at a nice table in the back, away from much of... More
