Hello and Happy Holidays!

First and foremost, we want to say that we care deeply about our staff, patrons, and community. Which is why, after much discussion and consideration, The Blackbird has decided to suspend operations, from January 2nd at 8am through February 3rd. As much as we enjoy serving our delicious food to our wonderful customers, we have weighed the options, and feel that it is best for everyone. We want to keep our staff and community, as safe as possible, and we feel that this is our best option to do so. In the meantime, we will keep a close eye on current events, and decide whether we need to extend past our February 3rd restart.

We do anticipate having a significant amount of perishables, on the 2nd, so these will all be donated to MANNA food bank.

** Please keep in mind that we will still be open, and honoring all reservations, until January 1st. **

We sincerely wish everyone a Happy and Safe Holiday Season!

The Blackbird loves YOU!!

  • Lovely lunch at the Blackbird, I was with my husband and another couple for lunch. The menu was filled with a variety of wonderful selections. We all ordered something different and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. It was medium priced and the portions were generous. If I were to visit Asheville again, I would definitely want to dine there again.

  • Can't wait to return. The food was exquisite. The staff member who served us was expert and so well informed on the food preparation and subtleties of the meal. We will return often whenever we are in   Asheville. Recommend to one and all!

  • I came here for a wholesome, nourishing meal... found that and more! The service was exceptional and attentive. I ordered the truffle mushroom risotto, and the chef even stopped by to say thank you. I also received a ton of useful information about where to go (shopping, sightseeing etc.) for the weekend. The menu is awesome and extensive! You’re bound to have a good time here.

  • Best food in Asheville and our favorite restaurant in Asheville! We ate at the bar Sat. night. The food, drinks and service could not have been better. Will definitely be going there again soon.

  • We had an excellent dinner at Blackbird. Our service was incredible and the flavors in our dishes were perfect. I had lamb that was as tender as a filet, and so yummy. Our desert was incredible and the wine selection is outstanding! Do yourself a favor and eat at Blackbird while you're in Asheville!
