    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
