I went in for dinner on Sunday evening with two friends. It is unassuming from the outside but the food was absolutely delicious. We had mussels in a sweet garlic carmalized onion sauce, a zesty italian wedding soup, catfish, halibut with capers over tagliatelle pasta with a fresh tomato sauce and the food was WELL worth the price. We had deconstructed Krispy Kreme bread pudding with a coffee/cinnamon sauce and a sweet potato creme brulee. They change their menu often apparently but i would absolutely recommend going because I haven't eaten that well in a very long time!!!

My husband and I got a babysitter and chose this place for our night out. We walked in, and we were ignored for a good ten minutes. I finally asked if they would take our name, and the hostess looked confused. We waited over an hour for over priced food that was not that good. They were also out of half the menu! We won't go back.

FANTASTIC! I had the "best ever" Frogs Legs. I have searched every cookbook I own and every internet site and cannot find a comparable recipe. Would the chef ever share this recipe??? Everything was fabulous and - at the risk of not being able to get a table (!!) - we've told ALL our friends to go!Thanks so much (and PLEASE tell me how to do Frogs Legs like that!!!) JD

I'm not a food reviewer-type, but I've had such good food at the Admiral recently that I am compelled to share. I'm a wedding cake baker, I work on the weekends, I wake up early, forget to eat, and finish late. So when I'm done dropping off the last wedding cake of the weekend, I'm hungry. I'm getting older, so I'm more picky than I used to be. So pulling over and getting a burrito just don't cut it anymore (which is what I did yesterday, at Trout Lily, in Fairview, the bean wrap I got was NASTY and the rice was CRUNCHY. I was pissed.) So today, when I finished with work and was ravenous and exhausted, I went to the Admiral, as has been my habit lately. And I've yet to be disappointed. Yum. Yum, Yum, Yum. I had the catfish sandwich. It was awesome, on lovely ciabatta w/ some randomly spiced aoli and tender/crunchy roasted potatoes. Then the chef, Eliot, (Elliott?) gave me some catfish chowder that was leftover from the night before. Hot, peppery, tasty, well-prepared catfish all around. In an unpretentious, yet styley atmosphere. Thanks guys. that was awesome.

The Admiral is actually more Continental than American, but that wasn't on the list of categories. The atmosphere and the food don't seem quite to fit with one another, as it feels more like a bar than a restaurant, while the food feels more like heaven. It is pretty small and usually crowded, but if all that is fine with you (I like cozy), then you will be treated to incredible food. The menu changes regularly, but I had a portabello mushroom dish that was out of this world. My partner had a hunter's stew with rabbit, venison, and assorted other animals that he could not stop raving about. This is the best restaurant food in Asheville.
