This place is amazing! The owner's wife has celiac, so he has created a completely gluten free kitchen and menu. And the food is amazing. We went for dinner and were so impressed that we came back for brunch the next day. Four years after my own celiac diagnosis, having eaten all over the USA and Europe, this is the best gluten free restaurant I have found. Absolutely outstanding. Outstanding GF Quiche with light, flaky pastry. Outstanding fried chicken and gravy. Outstanding scones. Outstanding roasted carrots, cauliflower, fingerling potatoes and chicken.
Holy moly yes go! Entire GF kitchen. Worth every penny! Menu constantly changing since food is locally sourced. We enjoyed every course. I wish I lived in Asheville so I could eat here regularly.
This is my favorite place and we drive a couple of hours to eat there. Everything is gluten free!!! The food is awesome and I really appreciate how they make everything from scratch.
I will drive 500 miles to eat here! Best food and as a Celiac, I felt like a normal person! You can eat anything on the menu!!
Absolutely amazing food! And, the entire menu is gluten free! Donut holes, French toast, all breads and fried items galore...plus healthy options, too! So good, and reasonably priced for farm-to-table! My husband and I both enjoyed our meal & considered it to be one of our best GF dining experiences!
Absolutely amazing! I am a chef and enjoy fine dining and well prepared, beautifully presented foods. Both my husband (not GF) and I had the hardest time deciding what to eat because everything sounded amazing. It is truly a gem- a high end, farm to table restaurant that just happens to be gluten free. I highly recommend you check this restaurant out if you are looking for a wonderful meal in a gorgeous downtown, foodie city!
Absolutely wonderful to have a full service dedicated upscale GF dining experience. Our 3rd time there. My non celiac family loves it as well. The lobster mac and cheese is to die for. Wish we lived closer!
Felt overwhelmed with joy at having a place where I could order anything on the menu! Amazing selection and incredible desserts! Highly recommend!! Don't pass up if you are in the area! Oh we are going back for the weekend brunch! Made reservation before we left tonight!
We went here for brunch and it was fantastic! Everything is gluten free. French toast, grits, and breakfast potatoes were delicious! My husband loved the cardamom latte with GF biscotti. We also had donut holes to go which were amazing. Gluten free or not, everything is good here!
100% gf kitchen. The food was delicious, but a little pricey and the portions were on the smaller side.
We love Posana and eat there as often as we can. Delicious local food! Great prices especially considering the quality and the ease of mind--no cross contamination worries at all as they're completely gluten free. Awesome kale salad. Desserts to die for! Frequently changing menu albeit some keepers. Executive chef Peter is a gem!!
Amazing gluten free food!
An amazing experience. Literally everything is gluten free. Pricey but the food and service is amazing and worth it for a special occasion. I had striped bass and my boyfriend had the lamb. Rosemary breadsticks are fantastic and the chocolate cake is to die for (just in the figure of speech sense- not in the gluten reaction literal sense)
While it was pretty special to see a completely gluten free menu, we went there for dinner and the food itself was disappointing. The entrée was so small (& over priced) that I was still hungry afterwards. We had a $100 gift card and it was spent after 2 entrées, 2 (small and mostly ice) drinks, and 1 dessert. The chocolate cake was heavenly; the best part of the meal. Would I eat dinner there again? Probably not. Maybe brunch would be better…
If you are looking for an outstanding brunch spot, try this award winning 100% gluten-free restaurant. All of the items are made from scratch with the best local ingredients. It is well wor th the trip to Asheville. Try the everything bagels, cinnamon buns, scones and egg's benedict. It's impossible to pick one favorite!
great donut holes!!!!
Absolutely everything in their restaurant is 100% gluten free! It was so nice to be able to eat anything off of the menu. We ordered the buttermilk fried chicken which was wonderful. I also had one of their biscuits and the pecan sticky roll. All were fabulous! My non gluten free husband enjoyed it as much as I did.
Posana's offers fabulously crafted food in a well appointed and relaxing environment. I savor every bite. The pastries are delicious. Top grade ingredients, home made, local, deliciousness. I am looking forward to dining there again soon. Try the quiche!
Best biscuit I have ever had!
Imagine eating at a fine restaurant where everything, including the bread sticks and biscotti served with your coffee, is gluten free. This was our experience at Posana Cafe. The meal was delicious and my non-celiac husband enjoyed it as much as I did.
I don't normally write reviews, but Posana is phenomenal. Everything on the menu is GF. Having celiac disease and knowing I could order ANYTHING off the menu was so nice. I consider myself a foodie and this restaurant is on my top 5 restaurant list. Next time I'm in Asheville, I'm eating here for every meal possible!!!
Excellent dinner, particularly the trout and the chocolate cake for dessert. I am both GF and dairy free, and although this limited my options (as always), they skillfully accommodated it. I was most amazed at how many times the chef appeared on the floor, both to meet people and to pitch in even with setting up tables. Very hands on.
Wonderful gf food! Just wish they had non dairy yogurt and more dairy free items like their pastries should be dairy free!
I came to eat breakfast there today and the service was awful, food was cold. I came last year and had amazing food and service! It was my first stop coming from Florida. I don't think I will ever go back.
Excellent restaurant! All gluten free menu. You won't find any reference to being gluten free on their menus or on signs at the restaurant, but you will on their website. They have delicious food, friendly staff, great atmosphere, terrific outdoor seating and great location. Great place for a relaxing, don't worry about what you're eating dinner! Saturday and Sunday brunch offer excellent options, including assorted baked goods.
Possibly my favorite restaurant anywhere. The entire restaurant is GF and the owner is fantastic. We go out of our way to eat here once a year. Creative menu with fresh, local offerings, homemade pasta. Recommend the kale salad, and I don't care for kale. Local meats, cheese, and a great bar. Save room for dessert. Please, Posana, open one in Dallas.
Great food. Knowledgable staff. Whole restaurant is GF.
We were in Ashville on a Monday. I was Sooooo disappointed. They are closed on Mondays. Wish I would have had the opportunity to eat here. Maybe some day I'll get back that way to try it.
I felt so safe and happy! I could eat anything I wanted, it was a great experience! I recommend Posana to anyone, GF or not.
Everything that comes out of the kitchen is GF. The waiter even told us that there are no outside snacks allowed in the kitchen as they take CC very seriously. Our dinner was excellent and I only wish this place would open shop in Charlotte!
Awesome food and all gluten free! The hamburger and fries are great. Although I'm disappointed they no longer have tempura.
best gf ever!!! heaven for those who need gluten free and for those who are don't, they won't even know the difference...it's that good!!!
We were there for brunch. We split the eggs Benedict and the pulled pork sandwich. The biscuit was burned but good tasting. The chai latte and homemade biscotti was delicious. Pulled pork needed something to add to its tender flavor.
One of the best meals I have ever eaten...dedicated gluten-free facility.
My favorite restaurant in Asheville, and the best gluten-free restaurant in Asheville. Go here!
If there was an option for a sixth star I would've given it. Posana Cafe is absolutely incredible. Everything was perfect. My girlfriend has Celiac's and we were so excited to try for dinner. All of the food was perfectly cooked, presented beautifully and tasted out of this world. It was remarkable that they are entirely gluten free. We liked it so much that we went back for brunch the next day. I did not think dinner/dessert could be topped but the brunch was equally as impressive. The pancakes, biscuit and every else were delicious and even the coffee was special. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Asheville, GF or not. This was our absolute favorite spot.
The food here is amazing! Make sure you try everything you can - the focaccia is fantastic, the bread pudding was amazing, the fettuccine is spectacular. Try it all!
I eat here almost weekly for brunch and even have some of my initially wary friends join me most weekends because the food is delicious. I have never gotten sick, except when I overindulge in there amazing scones, muffins, and sticky buns!!!
Everything is GF!! I had the dinner special last night (fish stuffed with lobster and wrapped in bacon) it was amazing! Everything was perfectly cooked. I had southern style eggs Benedict for brunch today, amazing as well. Eating there tomorrow night because both our experiences have been excellent. Taylor is the best waitress as well
Everything I've had on their menu is great! But my favorite of all is their berry lime cheesecake! It melts in your mouth!
Amazing place. Good menu selection and everything is GF by default. No need to negotiate or worry. And they have delicious Brunehaut GF beer! Very happy, will definitely be back.
The food was not great. The confit was dry, the biscuits overcooked. The soup was under seasoned. The sweetbreads were well done. The burger was plain and tasteless. The cheesecake was deconstructed but not advertised as such I wouldn't have ordered had I known. I still give it three stars since I was able to eat there safely.
This is the perfect place for Celiac diners! My husband, who is not gluten free, loved it as well. Will definitely come back if I'm ever out this way!
A must if you are in the area. Very friendly staff.
Great food, great service! All gluten free so you don't even have to explain or apologize. The lobster mac n cheese made with fresh gnocchi was excellent! The pork shoulder was also a fave!
This restaurant is incredible!! So many items to choose from. The creme brûlée is amazing!! Can't wait to try some of the pastries...
Found this place on a whim when I was visiting Asheville with my grandparents (I go to WCU). It was like magic to someone who has Celiac disease. I asked the hostess about the gluten free menu only to discover that the entire place is gluten free! Had the tomato bisque with lobster Mac n cheese (gnocchi). Their desserts are to die for. My favorite restaurant ever!
Food was so good we ate here two nights in a row. Didn't have a reservation so sat down at the bar. Talking to the bartender found out we could order dinner from her it was amazing. Had mussels app with gf bread. Shared a salad with locally made goat cheese out if this world. My husband had a special entree snapper I had pork over homemade fettuccine we finished with cheese cake worth every penny.
It was so nice to not have to worry about cross contamination since all food is gluten free. Everything I have tried here is delicious, and you would never guess its gluten free!
Wonderful dinner!!!!! Delicious meal options even my non-GF husband liked. Server was knowledgeable and nice. Loved the lettuce wraps, gazpacho, quail, pork shoulder, and cheesecake with the crunchy hazelnut/coconut crust. Beautiful presentations and perfectly sized portions. Very celiac friendly place. LOVED IT.
My favorite restaurant! Ever! They have a dessert chef... and she is a true artist. Everything they make in house is gluten free, and it's the same quality of those wonderful gourmet restaurants that I can't afford to go to anymore! We can all get different dishes, and we can actually share tastes with each other! (I miss sharing the experience of wonderful food!) Every time I pass thru Asheville, we stop here for food...and a few desserts to go! We've even made the 4 hour drive for special occasions, just to eat here.
We had a fantastic dinner there, even those that are not gluten free. The food was interesting, presented well and most importantly, delicious. There was a good mix of normal food (chicken and mashed potatoes/ hamburger) plus some with more creativity for the foodies in the group.
My favorite gf restaurant ever! Everything was amazing.
Drive 3 hours just to eat at Posana and have Chef Peters food! Amazing meal! We had the fried green tomatoes, kale salad, potato soup, pork shoulder over pasta and cheesecake! Everything was fantastic! Worth the drive. 100% Gluten Freel
Absolutely the best meal I've had since being diagnosed with Celiacs. It was fresh, delicious and unlike anything I've had before. The fried green tomatoes and the lobster mac and cheese are a must try. My husband is not GF and said he couldn't tell the difference! Great selection of GF beers. Wonderful!
Amazing!!!! We ate the lobster Mac-n-cheese for an app. I had the Caesar salad and fettucini w/ shrimp, corn Nd garlic butter sauce. My daughter had the burger ( on a GF bun) and Parmesan, white truffle fries! She also had the strawberry sorbet for dessert! Loved! Awesome! Will return!!!! Great, great job! Oh... And the wait staff were so nice and helpful!!!!)
Off the hook! 100 percent gf, Great staff, lobster Mac and cheese is quite possibly the best gluten free food I have ever eaten! Great selection of gf beers, more than I have ever seen on any menu! Desserts are insanely good as well
Great breakfast and even better bakery items! It is all gluten free and amazing!
A great experience........make a reservation.
So dang good!
One place I can go without fear. even with reservations we waited PC over 30 minutes. Their menu is less veggie friendly than in the past.
Loves the Kale salad!!! Trout dish was fabulous!!! Also the fact that it is a dedicated GF restaurant!!! I've never heard of place like that before. Excellent food...will come again:-)
So wonderful! It was absolutely delicious for me and my non gluten free boyfriend. The pimento cheese with focaccia was AMAZING. Such a treat.
Great GF menu and beers! Chef is great about modifying any menu item for other food allergies. I highly recommend to everyone not just folks with food allergies.
Amazing! Could not compliment this establishment enough! I'm gluten, dairy, oat, and corn free and I had no problems being accommodated on everything! Nice, quiet establishment with superior service. I ate lunch and carried dinner out :)
Food was really good, want extra healthy, don't miss out on the kale salad. Was nice to know that everything on the menu was GF, no possible way of an cross contamination. Although my waiter was very good, seems like they only take care of their sections only.
This is what every gluten sensitive person wishes for: everything on the menu is GF! And DELICIOUS! Let me repeat that... Everything on the menu is gluten free! I still cant believe it. There's also an extensive GF beer list and many divine desserts. Plus the wait staff is incredibly nice and knowledgable. Wish we lived here and could go all the time!
Fantastic! Entire menu is gf!
great food! love this place. totally gluten free menu.
This is G-Free heaven! Great food and great service!
Excellent! Yummy & so nice to be able to eat anything on the menu...everything was gluten free!!! Had a bagel sandwich & my husband who does not it gf loved it too!!!!
Terrific GF Menu, service & atmosphere.
