This was a pleasant surprise and the people at Curate knew their stuff and provided an excellent range of Spanish Tapa's in a very good atmosphere.Unlike most American restaurants this really had flair.

As a local I love this place but the tourist make it a little hard to slip into. I go outside the rush hours and tell the waiter "bring me whatever is good". I don't like a few things so I let them know that and then sit back and feast. However you do it, do youself a favor and... More

Great Tapas place. Good food and wine selections. We arrived about 130p on a Friday, busy but we were able to get a table.

We were unable to get a reservation but lucked out when we took a chance and stopped in to see if any tables were available. There was a 45 minute wait, but we were able to walk around in some of the shops and were texted when our table was ready. We were seated at the bar which we really... More

So, this is a restaurant with great reviews, so why do I even bother? With no reservations, spouse and I decided to stop in at 4 pm for a taste and a beverage. Without reservations we were designated to one of the three bistro tables. Not a problem despite it's mini tabletop. A robust wine list and delectable tapas offerings... More

Went to this restaurant totally on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! Seated in the back which was nice, felt more private but it filled up fast. Looked at the menu that is your placement and we were unsure of what to start with so the waiter suggested that the chef would pick for us! Perfect!... More

This is A restaurant that could excel in NYC or any other major cullinary capital but happily exists right in Ashville. Have dined here five or six times. It is a cullinary destination onto itself. Esqueixada de Montaña with locally sourced raw trout on a bed of finely diced tomato is to die for. The squash soup is truly unique... More
