Vincenzo's: "I Beg to Differ (the Oysters Rockefeller were Hmm)" Asheville Restaurant Tip by MrsClayA

Asheville Restaurants: 86 reviews and 84 photos

After waiting YEARS to find a home-style, non-chain restaurant in the area that served Oysters Rockefeller, then waiting 'til they opened at 5:30 (after browsing Asheville all day) my oysters came to the table in under 8 min. Were they possibly nuked? FUGGETABOUTIT ! Too much shredded parm, not cooked enough. Real bummer, as it was supposed to be the Crowning Jewel on my birthday........we were downstairs in the "bistro" or whatever, and the atmosphere was a Lesbian show/CW that was bashing men on the TV at the bar! No thanks. I'll just go to the corner dive if I want to watch TV, or stay home.

Favorite Dish: Husband had the lump crabmeat with rice and veggies. Pretty good, but I wouldn't go back.
