We went to this place specifically for the free bluegrass jam on Tuesday night when we arrived in Asheville. We weren't sure we could get a table to have dinner, but were pleasantly surprised when we learned there were a couple tables for us to...More

We had a great night at this restaurant. Great service. The food was good too. We really enjoyed how small the venue was and we really enjoyed the performance. (Sultans of Swing) Nice place.

Isis is a "throwback" to times when people took time to prepare excellent food and to provide great music. In the "artsy" West Asheville neighborhood, Isis is like a "happy surprise." Tuna was seared just right and served over wonderful crisp noodles. Dessert was amazing....warm...More

Isis is located in a converted movie theater serving up a wide-ranging full dinner and desert menu. Music varies throughout the week. We saw a group called Sassagrass who served up some outstanding Bluegrass music. Well worth multiple visits!More

We had Sunday Brunch. It took a while to get seated because it was very busy but the service and food were very good once we sat. Very accommodating staff for our large group. Food well prepared and tasty. Definitely recommend

We went for the 7-9pm performance which is in a more intimate, nightclub-like setting and we had dinner before the performance. Enjoyed the fried chicken very much and they were flexible about the side dishes. The band (Roamin' Jasmine) was terrific! A wonderful way to...More

In planning a trip to check out what Asheville is all about, I did some homework and found this interesting venue. I was delighted to find a Friday night show in the lounge and a Sunday night show on the Main Stage that sounded interesting...More

My family of 6 wanted to hear live music and found the Isis Restaurant and Music close to where we were staying. We attended the Blue Grass Session and had a table up close and the food was amazing! Loved it all!

Not tons of GF choices but enough to have a good meal. The zoodles veg dish is about the only thing I have tried at Isis that I don't care for. It is woefully under-seasoned and flavorless. Everything else has been... More
