We started with a small charcuterie plate. My wife and daughter had raw roasted beets and seasonal salads (I sampled both). We finished with the petite filet medium plate and fried green tomatoes. All of the food was excellent!!! Also, we shared a bottle of the NV Proa Brut Cava Vilobi. We will definitely return to Chestnut on our next... More

We had a fair meal at Chestnut, but based on the ratings in Asheville, we expected a better dining experience. We had selected Chestnut as one of our picks for Asheville's restaurant week based on the high ratings it had at the time. Being new to the area we wanted to get to know the best restaurants in town. Nothing... More

Asheville in the evening is not for the hungry! Crowds abound! We perused the restaurants looking for non-Mexican, vegan friendly dinners. While not vegan, this vegetarian friendly establishment had 3 delicious options! I selected the Risotto. I was in gastric heaven from the first bite! My husband had the pork chops. He liked them, but was still hungry when we... More

One of the nicer restaurants in downtown with prices to match. Enjoyed a great lunch with a little more reasonable prices. Service is excellent. Great for celebrating special events.

Had a really good meal with excellent service at Chestnut. We both decided to have the Alaskan Halibut. It was excellent. Cooked perfect with mushrooms and beets on the plate. It was served hot and we were not rushed. Had "down the rabbit hole" cocktail. Excellent. Had lobster bisque soup. It was great. We splurged and had the soufflé (u... More

I had eaten here a year ago, so was eager to visit again. My entree was just so-so, unfortunately. It was scallops served on polenta with mushrooms and truffles. Well, if there were truffles on the dish, I surely didn't taste them. The scallops were good perfectly, but there was too much bland polenta which overwhelmed it. My starter was... More

My boyfriend chose this place on a whim, wanting to make our first Valentines day special. After a great day at the Biltmore, Chestnut was a short drive away. The food was amazing as well as the service. We arrived early for our reservation but that wasn't a problem. The staff was more than happy to accommodate us. Everything we... More

We came as a walk in group of 6. Everyone one from the hostess to the waiters were very accommodating to our groups. We had to sit at two separate table which was fine with us. Food was to die for. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back the next time we're in town.

Thank Michelle M

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.
