    Had a fantastic meal for Valentines! Everything on the menu was gluten free, even the hot breadsticks. Annie, our waitress was wonderful!

    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)!!

    Our experience was absolutely wonderful and our server, Seth, was very helpful and answered all our questions with confidence. We will definitely be back on our next trip.

    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!

    It is very rare I can go into a restaurant and eat anything on the menu. Not only that but I was able to try share meals with others. Everything was delicious!

    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!

    They got a lot of things wrong on our order and food was super inconsistent, but what came out good was VERY good, and it was very relaxing not to worry!

    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.

    First time my daughter with celiac disease has eaten fried chicken, biscuits, & donuts since her diagnosis 3-years ago. "Heavenly" she said and asked to visit again next year (we live in San Diego). One of the few meals that have been delicious & safe since her diagnosis without the worry of cc!

    Was a delight to come and try this place over thanksgiving weekend. After reading reviews on here for places around Ashville to go, I decided this was a must stop. And I wasnt disapointed. Cute little shop with a lovely atmosphere and decore. The food was fantastic. We were there for Sunday Brunch and the Waffle with chocolate butter and brittle was amazing. Just wish it were a little closer to Raleigh, I would go here all the time.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!!
