    I ate there twice during my stay in Asheville and did not get sick. Except for beer, the restaurant is GF. My waitress had celiac and said she eats there all the time. Service was great and accommodating. Food was delicious. Kids menu is a bit limited

    Fantastic food, beautiful atmosphere & attentive staff. We accidentally discovered this gem & found it to be a GF kitchen! 💥 The pancakes at brunch were fluffy, fresh and delicious ... we came back for appetizers and cocktails in the evening and enjoyed the beautiful patio.

    The entire restaurant is gluten free and is fresh farm to table. I had the best food of my life and didn’t have to worry at all about getting sick. The waiters were also friendly and brought the food out fairly quick. Overall a fantastic experience!

    The best meal I have ever had! It was amazing. Entire kitchen is gluten free so there is no chance of cross contamination. The food is absolutely incredible. We want to travel back to Asheville just for this restaurant.

    We LOVE this place and eat here every time we’re in town. The food is delicious and it’s wonderful to be able to tell my Celiac daughter she can have whatever she wants!

    We really wanted to love this place! My 7 year old celiac was so excited to eat here but within 2 hours of her dinner (GF grilled cheese and fries) she was very sick. Disappointing as we drove 2 hours on our vacation so she could eat here. I contacted the manager after and he reassured me that what she had was GF but we strongly feel she was somehow glutened here.

    A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. They were able to accommodate us being dairy (casein) intolerant, too. Everything was to die for- we got the trout, pork shoulder, soup, and bread sticks.

    What a wonderful experience! As others have mentioned, this is a completely dedicated gluten free restaurant. On top of having celiac I have many other food allergies that do not allow me to eat outside of my own kitchen very often. They were above and beyond accommodating and put together an entree specifically tailored to my allergies. It was delicious and truly a treat to our rare dinner date night. The staff was amazing and the environment was fantastic! Wish we could give more than 5 stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Shhh... we'll keep your secret. This place is amazing. Everything we ordered was delicious. The ambience and service was exceptional. The entire menu and kitchen is gluten free, which is a wonderful surprise for those, like us, with celiac and gluten sensitivity. We could order everything off the menu. I would eat here if I could eat all the gluten I wanted. I'm glad they don't advertise that way as people may avoid without knowing what they were missing. We will eat here everytime we come to Asheville.

    Best restaurant - exactly what every Celiac wants - real food that just happens to be gluten free. Fresh, local ingredients. They don't advertise the restaurant as gluten free as to not dissuade the average customer but it is in fact dedicated gluten free and everything we ordered was fantastic.

    I felt like I was in heaven. One of the best dedicated gluten free restaurants I’ve ever been to. So many options of things I never get to eat!!! And I didn’t have to worry about anything or google ingredients! I tried the donut holes, fried chicken sandwich (omg!!!!), and sticky bun. Everything was divine. I haven’t had a sticky bun since I was a gluten eating child and it tasted exactly as I remembered. This is my number one go to in Asheville from now on.

    We absolutely loved it here. We ordered an appetizer, a side, two entrees, and dessert. They were all exceptionally delicious and all totally gluten free! Fiancé, who is not celiac/gf (I am), said “that was a religious experience...” this place is definitely a must-go.

    At this point I don't know as my adding my review is even worthwhile, but because I can't tolerate dairy either, I suppose it's worth it! A gluten-free kitchen!!!!! To say our experience was phenomenal would be an understatement. Never have I felt so safe eating out, and I wish I lived closer! To top it all off, the restaurant doesn't set out salt and pepper because the food is perfectly seasoned! I will definitely be returning in the future when I'm in town! The food was lick-your-plate good (I fought the urge very hard)!!

    Glutard-tastic. It is good to be a Celiac with restaurants like Posana. From the gnocchi, to the sunchokes, kale salad, breadsticks, duck, pork belly, and take home chocolate Grenache cake, it was worth every bite (and the belly bulge). highly recommend splitting all plates for more taste. Amazing and will return!

    Oh my God talk about amazing! This restaurant is a very upscale restaurant that does require reservation or you can free sit at the bar. It is extremely modern and hip and offers a wide variety of food. The best part is everything on the menu is gluten-free it is a completely gluten-free restaurant. None of the food tasted gluten-free you would not have known had you not been told. It is definitely chef-inspired and prepared with Precision. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and the bread was some of the best I have ever tasted. They also make your own homemade sodas there for you fresh. Love it ,it's a gotta try!

    I would give this a million stars if I could!! Started the night in this completely gf restaurant (minus a few local brews on tap) with the breadsticks. Moved onto the NY Strip and finished the night with the macaroon cheesecake. It. Was. Amazing. My husband (who is not gf) loved the snapper. Great food. Great staff. Great all around! If you are in Asheville, go!

    The best meal I've had since diagnosis! Partly because the food was absolutely delicious and wonderfully presented, and partly because I could relax and enjoy the meal with no worries about getting sick. The staff was kind and the environment was fun. A must for Celiacs!

    My husband and I have come to Asheville that past two years for our anniversary. We eat at Posano at least twice while here! I have celiac and am highly sensitive. The food is unbelievable, the atmosphere is beautiful and warm, and the service is exceptional. It never disappoints!

    We travel a lot, and my wife has a serious gluten allergy as well as other allergies. By far, this is the best restaurant we have ever been to. We've been four times. The chef who owns it has a wife with celiac. The whole restaurant is dedicated gluten free. Our experience: - No allergic reaction. - The food is fabulous! - The service is superior to most places. Brit and Patrick are our favorites. - Nice environment. We highly recommend and plan to come back again.

    absolutely amazing food in a vibrant atmosphere. I had steak and fried green tomatoes. I honestly could have made a meal of those tomatoes, they were so good. but then I would have missed out on my steak, which was sublime.

    An all-GF restaurant with a seasonal menu. Stylish atmosphere that isn't stuffy. Bartenders also know what they're doing. Every meal I've had there has been amazing. I've had several friends (who aren't gluten-allergic) go in thinking that the food is going to be lacking somehow because it's all GF, and they come out raving that it's one of the best meals they've had in Asheville. Make reservations if you plan on going for dinner. Waits can be long if you just pop in off the street.
