Excellent wine choices! We love to sit at the window bar and people watch. The meat cheese board always very nice. We go every time we are in town.

Went here to listen to live music, played by a group I have heard before. The whole evening was delightful.. A perfect late-spring evening. Good bevs and good music. Wonderfully relaxed. The staff actually kicked us out, nicely!

We always have a great time at 5 Walnut. There's a great mix of locals and travelers. Excellent service and well-selected wines. Each day they have 5 dollar specials--two white and two reds--usually French, Italian, or Spanish. Great live music, too.

This was my first visit to a wine bar, and the woman behind the counter recommended an excellent dry white wine which was only $5 a glass. I loved the atmosphere of the place which fronted one of downtown Asheville's lovely streets. It didn't seem...More
