It tops my personal list for sure! Start with Pan Con Tomate. Such a simple Catalan tapa, yet it's perfection. Where you go from there is up to you. Everything I had was fabulous. The servers are extremely attentive and knowledgeable, as if they were also chefs. Sit at the bar if you have 3 or less. Maybe 4 if... More

Went to Curate late on a Friday evening and had excellent service, food, atmosphere and sparkling sangria. Loved it so much that we went back the following night for more sangria. I highly recommend this establishment for people watching, a nice night out and an interactive environment...not to be missed.

I don't usually write restaurant reviews on TripAdvisor unless I see something that really irritates me. Like the recent silly review where someone brags about having lived in Spain and how tasteless the food was. I have also spent a lot of time eating in Spain and the tapas here great! Both authentic and creative. Many of the dishes reflect... More

Having lived for 2 years in Madrid and Toledo, Curate left me flat. I had no issue with the service, but the prices for food and drinks were way beyond value. And the flavors were just not there.Just shows that most Americans have no idea of the real thing. Sorry, too much hype and not enough substance.

My daughter and I stopped here for a European lunch experience - wine, cheese, and other tapas and were happy we did - even the siesta that followed. The chocolate desert was delectable. Never had it in Spain though.

My second time around at the Doubletree and I am a local, and it always feels like home, as it should since my parents lived up the road in Biltmore Forest.for many years. I have excess family visiting right now, and what a joy to stay here. Quiet, near everything, southern hospitality. I recommend the trolley stop which will show... More

I live in Charleston SC so let's be clear My cup over flows with choices and the bar is set high. So when I saw Curate I was excited as I love Tapas but nervous because let's face it tapas can be oversold. Get inline make the effort do what you need to because I haven't enjoyed a meal as... More

Quickly seated, but after 10 min we left; a server never presented themselves. What a shame! 10 year anniversary lunch re-routed!

I was for late lunch after I flew in to Asheville. I friend had recommended and he was right. We got Spanish wine, and shared plates to try many choices. I think this place is one of best Spanish food restaurants.
