My husband and I visited our daughter who. lives in Asheville and we always love to dine at Curate. While reservations are extremely difficult to secure and deservedly so; I snagged three bar stools - we ordered octopus, Brussels sprouts, sautéed spinach, lamb skewers, Iberian ham sampler, salad with oranges and roasted beets - every dish was delicious and artfully...

We're locals. There are so many ways to enjoy Curate'. For a quick intro, try to get lucky and check if a space is available at the bar. Get a starter and watch the chefs at work. Then just point at whatever excites you. This time it was a family bash on New Year's Eve. So we went for chef's... More

Omg, this is one of the truly wonderful restaurants in Asheville. Great for lunch or dinner. I'm lucky to have dined here a number of times. Consider booking a table well in advance of your visit. The wait staff are tuned in professionals who seem passionate about the offerings. Not as many offerings for vegetarians as some places in amazing... More

My husband and I stopped in for an early dinner. I had been there before but he had not. It is restaurant week but we were early and got a nice bistro table in the front. We ordered a bottle of Spanish red that was delicious and three plates plus the dessert that is like flan, but lighter. Everything was... More

I'm an Asheville native born and bred. I've watched a lot of restaurants come and go in this tourist town but Curate isn't going anywhere! I've lost count of how many times I have eaten here. The food is insane. The sangria is always a good decision and I love that the restaurant has been so successful because it is... More

they take no reservations but it is a great tapas joint. All dishes we have had were excellent and the ambience is mighty fine (if that is important to you)

I cannot use enough superlative's to help you understand this. Just go try it. Ask for recommendations, try new things, enjoy yourself… The food is absolutely impeccable.

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
