Average. Decided to give this place a try on our trip to Asheville, after reading the top restaurants from online. The decor was mediocre. Quaint, but nice. The hostess was friendly and greeted us warmly. There were two other couples in the restaruant on the Wednesday night we arrived, and rightfully so we were seated immediately. The server approached our table to greet us, and then stated she was going to grab menus and silverware (remember, only two other couples in the restaurant) which took well over five minutes because we noticed her having an informal conversation with the hostess...what ever could they have been talking about? The beer and wine selection were both adequate and to our liking. We started with the Calamria for an appetizer, and I would have to agree with the previous persons review about over-breading and lack of taste. Our entrees, (pollo piccatta alla veneziana , pollo saltimbocca, capelli d'angelo pasta) were reasonably priced, but lacked flavor and were served luke warm. None of the entrees were anything that we hadn't experienced elsewhere and with better results. We did not stay for dessert. The best part of the evening was the guitar player, "Mark", who did a great job of setting the mood with nice renditions of James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Jim Croce, and others. Again, an average night, but umfortunately not one that we will repeat.

If you are in need of a professional hair stylist who uses only botanical products, this is the place for you. I returned to the Asheville area after being in another state for 8 years. During my stay, I had the good fortune of being in the care of a stylist who uses the Farouk styling system, Chi products and my hair has never been in such good shape. Coming back here, I wanted the same experience but was misled by a local stylist. I did my research and found this salon. I am so happy to say that not only is this salon professional and quality, but I found the prices are actually cheaper than the salon I went to where I was misled. Woody is the owner and also my stylist. Her dedication to her clients and salon is obvious and she is very willing to accommodate her clients, to the best of her ability. The salon itself is clean and welcoming and I felt good from the moment I entered. If you are at all interested in products that do not contain Ammonia, are good for the hair and head, and colors that are true and long lasting, opt for this salon. If you want to be treated well and spend your money wisely, opt for this salon. You will not be sorry.
WOW!!!!! All I have to say is WOW!!! This salon is the best in WNC. I recently started going to Tyler and he has done my hair 3 times now; and each time, I tell him something new to do and he does it PERFECTLY!!!!! However, this time he suggested that we try something new and modern, "ombre" ...HE DID AN AMAZING JOB!!! The placement was perfect and he was so particular about his work. I left there feeling like royalty, I felt so pretty and had several compliments on my hair all day!!! Thank you Tyler, you are the best!!!I also see Kim for my nails. She is fabulous! She ACTUALLY cares about my nails and wants me to have the best. I love her and I am so glad I found her! Rachel does my eyebrows and I have never felt so pampered while just getting my eyebrows done. I went on my lunch break to get them waxed and left without one welt or red spot on my face! AMAZING!!!I LOVE THIS SALON AND I WILL NEVER GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!!! Everyone there treats me like family and I feel at home everytime I go!!! I actually enjoy going to get my hair, nails and eyebrows done!!! Thank you AVARI family!!! Brandi and Kim you have done a fabulous job!!!!!
Bella Dona is located in a small shopping center, right off Hendersonville Road, making it easy to get to. I had a 4pm facial on a Saturday, the only time open that day. I arrived a few minutes late but the girl who greeted me (and did my massage) was not upset. I had a European facial through Groupon; I filled out a form with my contact info and a few questions on my skin regimen. She was good about telling me what kind of facial she would do based on my answers. The massage room was peaceful and had soothing music playing. In addition to the facial (which was fantastic), she gave a hand and shoulder massage that were great. She used Dermalogica, well stocked in the retail section. At a glance, there's a pretty good selection of beauty items you can buy in the store. No pushy sales pitch, which was nice. Perfect ending to a Saturday afternoon.
Walking in to Lola you are immediately transported to a by gone era of glamor and unpretentious hi-end customer service. You feel welcomed and special and that is just from being greeted with a sparkling beverage! I leave my cares behind and know I am in good hands with the staff of Lola! Rebecca is who I see and my sister sees Liz. We like to make our appointments together and make a girls day of it, ready to get spoiled! You never feel more girlie or well taken care of than when you are at Lola. My friend called to get in with Liz or Rebecca, when they were booked they got a great cut & color from another stylist and were just as happy! I am not the type to write reviews but... I just had to write a glowing review!
ask for becky. she is one of the top stylists, colorists in asheville. she uses the latest products like the INOA (sp?) hair color that is ammonia-free and actually feels good in your hair instead of the smelly, irritated kind. you can book with her direct, too: 551-5712. the shop is not hippest place in the world but becky is :). besdies, who wants to pay an extra $100 to listen to "indie" music in one of those places. becky gives the same or better hair service for a reasonable price...oh, she did my cousin's wedding party too so she does the special occasion stuff...
"You must go to Laura's Canvas to get your hair done!" Run, don't walk. Laura's been my hair stylist for 5+ years and I keep coming back for more. It's such a lovely salon with good energy and talented people. I love it when my calendar says I have a hair appointment with Laura! I always receive the best compliments about my hair where ever I go. And I quickly tell them to head to Canvas. Oh, BTW the current (Jan 2013) location is under Nevada Bob's Golf Store on Hendersonville Rd. Many thanks Laura!!!
Wow was delivery fast and the food was surprising good. I've had Domino's in the past and never been too fond of it, but their prices were better than the others in the area, so I decided to try them again. They definitely updated their recipes so that they pizza is more tasty and they have a really cool feature if you place your order online - you track it each step of the way. They delivered in under 30 mins to the Days Inn and our order was correct and the food was good.
I am not a hateful person, however I was very disappointed . The food was VERY visually appealing but just lacked in the flavor dept. The Italian dressing was weaker than soggy white bread. I had to add salt to it to make it palatable. :(. Also the large " house salad " had two slices of cucumber and NO tomatoes or olives or cheese? The entree again was poor in he flavor department. Frank... The devil is in the details!!
Relocated and always hesitant to begin with new stylist for highlights as my hair takes color oddly, I have natural curly hair and meds effects my hair too. Amanda just did an amazing job on my hairlights ... I'm elated with her expertise and the atmosphere and service was impeccable!! I highly recommend Full Circle Salon as well as Amanda. Very happy and will absolutely be a steady repeat client.
