Went there for a birthday. Food was good but the portions were small. Waiter was very attentive. Atmosphere was nice but average.

We were in town for a quick trip and became familiar with the chain through the Destin, Fl location. We grabbed a quick spot at the bar for an early dinner. Had the zucchini app, cocktails, and then a flatbread (margherita) and the filet as our entrees. Food was great and the service was good. We arrived before the crowd... More

Thanks for the kind words about our food and service. These are the things we like to hear. We will work with the bar staff to improve on that initial start up and see if we can have them overwhelming our guests more than the other way around. Come back and visit us soon! More

We had pine nut crusted salmon and Brussels sprouts! This is the only restaurant where I would ever order Brussels spouts!!!! They are delicious!!! Sangria is delightful! Our server, Casey, was way above average. She made excellent suggestions and made certain our water glasses were refilled! It was a wonderful experience!!!!

One of the two best meals we had in Asheville. If you like Italian food and good wine and good service, this place is a winner. It is located right across the street from the Hilton.

Trivinia was a wonderful dinning experience. We went for lunch. There were 3 adults and 2 children. Not only was the food outstanding but the service was amazing. The chef was kind enough to make a grilled cheese sandwich for my 2 year old granddaughter and then even cut up fruit for her that was just perfect for her little... More

We have been there 3 times and 2 out of the 3 times there were empty tables galore but were told that there would be a 20 to 30 minute wait for a table! Why? Because they are busy with "large" parties. With a push we got seated and even waited on and served both times. The thing is that... More

As we strive to give a great experience to all of our guests, we do have to start a waiting list. This ensures that each and every guests get the experience the desire. On the occasional evenings we must make a guest wait, it is never just because of a "large party". Our hostess staff will be informed that this... More

Excellent food, excellent atmosphere, drinks, service, etc. Mr. Happy hour special was obviously too cheap to enjoy everything else that was soooo wonderful. Shame on him for discouraging anyone from experiencing this awesome place!
