    Food was good. The service was not great. Server was not attentive and slow- he didn’t seem happy at all to be doing the job. The restaurant was very warm which made the dining experience less than comfortable. Overall an ok experience but probably will not go back-so many other choices in Asheville.

    We've dined at Tupelo Honey Downtown on many occasions over the years. We recently entertained out of town guests expecting to enjoy a wonderful dinner once again, but were very sadly disappointed. We arrived on time for our 8:45 reservation. We ordered cocktails, which took 15-20 minutes to arrive, ordered dinners and proceeded to wait almost a hour before being served, as the restaurant became almost empty of customers. I complained to a head waiter about the delay as was told the kitchen had 30 plus orders to prepare and were understaffed on a Saturday night. I suggest the restaurant not accept reservations if then can not provide normal service. Cancel reservations in advance, if that appears to be the case. BTW - the food when it finally arrived was mediocre at best and not up to previous standards . Sadly, I doubt we'll ever return. There are now too many other better options in Asheville

    We went there for my birthday dinner. There were no tables available, so we sat at the bar. I had filet mignon, and my wife has blackened Mahi mahi. Both were excellent. We finished up with banana pudding. We've dined here several times and have never been disappointed.

    We definitely recommend this place as a modern take on southern cuisine. I had the chicken and waffles, and my wife had the cast iron pork, both of which were excellent. My only wish is that the owners would open up a Tupelo Honey in the MD/DC area. The next time we're in Asheville, we are definitely visiting again.

    It’s very consistent however why they removed customer favorites from the lunch menu makes no sense. They need to adjust the menu and I would give 5 stars
