Bartender was very busy, yet as nice and calm as could be. Food was well prepared. Because he was delayed in serving us at the bar, he gave us a free app.

We loved this restaurant. The service was excellent and not being in the mood for a huge dinner, the small plate options were perfect. Everything was so good!

I went here for a late lunch and was very pleased. Had some sort of autumn inspired cocktail that was wonderful and a beet salad that was creative and beautifully presented. Super fresh and delicious. Nice atmosphere, excellent service. Would love to return for dinner.

Chestnut is an American restaurant. We are in a 1920s era building in downtown Asheville, right across for the Aloft hotel and the double decker coffee bus. Parking is plentiful (and cheap) at the public deck under the Aloft Hotel.
