Wonderful experience here! They knew just how to make a Celiac feel comfortable without compromising taste. We ordered the charcuterie board and they served it with warm GF bread. The menu changes monthly because it’s seasonal but they were super accommodating!
My family visited for brunch. There are only 2 entrees and 2 salads marked as GF but other dishes can be adapted. Omelettes weren’t marked GF just because they come with toast. You can get them without or sub GF toast. They don’t put GF bread in the toaster, they do it separately in the oven. They usually have a dedicated fryer but in the day I was there, someone had messed up and so the chef said I shouldn’t eat anything fried. The waiter was knowledgeable, patient, and very helpful. They had some GF desserts on the menu but were out of the GF cake. The food was great - I had shrimp and grits.
The staff was awful... sold us on a chip app saying it was gluten free and then delivered it and said the dip isn’t safe it has gluten in it. You can just have the plain chips. Our server also told us they had no gluten free salad dressing options and the steak was my safest option . Wish I would have just stuck with my fav restaurants and not tried something new. Too many good choices in Asheville to just go with a place where I can just have the old standby meat and veggies
Great downtown location. Hip vibe. Excellent friendly attentive server, very knowledgable about GF options. Had lunch at the bar. Enjoyed the tomato soup, grilled shrimp skewers with a side of asian slaw. The food was fresh made. The sauce for the shrimp was delicious. The soup and the asian slaw were both ok but bland. Would return for drinks, lunch or dinner.
I can't say enough about Chestnut. We get there at least once every time we are in Asheville. Exceptionally aware staff--we never worry once we tell them my husband is celiac! We just love the food and the whole atmosphere. Love their medium plates--they have a 3 oz filet that they prepare amazing well. Menu changes often, but they always have a delicious lemon bar with lavender ice cream --Yum!
My family and I ate here before the Thanksgiving holiday. Since the menu is printed every day, there is no physical gluten-free menu but the entire staff is extremely aware and the manager preps the staff about allergies. The kitchen goes the extra mile to keep food prep areas clear of cross-contamination. How was the food? Amazing. I picked the Thai curry mussels off the main menu and had a lemon bar with lavender mint ice cream dessert. All I had to say was I couldn't have gluten and our server, Colleen, handled the rest.The food and service quality was better than you'd expect.
