The wait staff was welcoming and sweet. Wine was great. Dinner itself was delicious. My husband had the rabbit and loved it. I had the gnocchi and it was to die for. We’ve never had vegetables cooked so expertly before! Dessert didn’t disappoint, either! Apple...More

We visited back in September. Happened upon it on a Sunday afternoon. We loved every bite and the service is outstanding. Met the chef and he took the time to explain the layers of flavor in a broth that accompianed a fresh trout dish. Returned...More

Thank you Tripadvisor for steering me to Spruce Pine for a surprisingly fun and delicious meal. The Hubby (meat guy) and I (vegan) showed up on Sunday for brunch. Brunch is three courses but the menu changes based upon what vegetables are in season and...More

A change in reservation from 3 to 4 people (including myself) was accommodated graciously by the staff in October for an evening meal. It was a little odd for the dining experience to have a diner feel (the kitchen open to the dining area), but...More

We were visiting friends in the area and they had heard from locals about this restaurant. Small but quaint restaurant. Local favorite so I recommend reservations. We got there early, without reservations, and luckily they could seat us. All meals are made with local vegetables....More

Good food, trendy, chef's table. That day there were two choices chicken or fish. We got the chicken with grits. It was enjoyable, but a little costly. You need reservations, at least we did for Sunday Brunch.

This was our favorite restaurant three years ago, tucked into a cozy spot with charm. Now they’ve moved onto an adjacent space that can only be described as a cellar. While I commend them for serving only what is locally available, the menu is very...More
