Biltmore Brunch Ratings and Reviews
The Biltmore is a beautiful, historic hotel in Coral Gables. We heard great things about the Sunday Champagne brunch and it really was special, but pricey at $100/person.
The food was amazing- well prepared, great variety of breakfast, lunch & dessert. We had "bottomless" mimosas.
The only concern was service. When we arrived, they were incredibly attentive. After our first cup of coffee & mimosa, it was a struggle to find or get our servers attention. Which, for a place like the Biltmore, was disappointing.
This is a great thing to do once, or for a special occasion- we saw many family parties, wedding events, bachelorette party, etc.
We took our 9 year old twins there for their birthday brunch. They thought it was great because there were so many options to choose from but they are 9 and don't realize that the food was very average to below average. The service was okay, however, we had to flag someone down several times for coffee and mimosa refills. Finally, when the bill came they charged us for 5 adults even though we had three kids with us. The difference there is significant since it's $90 for adults and $42 for kids. We were notified that our13 year old counts as an adult which is okay but not a good value for a kid who doesn't eat nearly what an adult might and certainly isn't drinking champagne! It wasn't a big deal to get the bill corrected, however, it felt like they do that to everyone unless you say something....maybe they don't care since many of their guests are on vacation but we happen to be local here is Coral Gables and unfortunately we won't be rushing back. Sad, we previously had a better experience and expected more for the price.
Absolutely spectacular, as always!! The caviar and seafood bar is my favorite. I must say, the pastry chef has outdone him/herself. Tiny floating islands and perfect, little discs of caramelized sugar on the tiny flan, a fountain of flowing chocolate; I could go on for days. Be sure to make a reservation as they disappear quickly.
There is a reason we go to the Sunday brunch almost every week when we are in Miami(4-6 months a year)! And there are reasons we think this Sunday buffet is the BEST we have been to: variety and taste of food; friendliness yet professionalism of staff and servers; live music inside and outside. We love the calimari that isn't fried, the juicy salmon that isn't overcooked, and the fresh succulent crab with horseradish, cocktail sauce, lemons and limes. We could write much more about the pasta station, the omelette station and the dessert ROOM....but suffice it to say: we have eaten at Sunday buffets at 5 star resorts in US and Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, Australia, and other countries, and this is our NUMBER ONE BUFFET in terms of what and how much is offered and how it is offered! Thank you, Biltmore!!!
I must say that the food is exquisite. Unfortunately, the service was nothing to write home about. We were seated indoors, as I had previously requested, and it was fairly empty. The setting was very lovely, however, our sever was not attentive at all. He forgot our drinks, he NEVER came by to ask if we needed anything and I would call him over and he wouldn't respond or he was too busy talking to other servers to hear me. I literally got up and went to a beverage station were he was hanging out with three other servers chatting away. I hate to say anything negative about anyone and he was a nice guy but, really, for $90/person you'd think the service would be at least as good as the food. What is even more sad is that the table right next to us were guests that seem to be regulars because they knew their server. Well, that table was constantly surrounded by different servers tending to their needs but not a single server ever asked us if everything was ok. Look, I don't expect special treatment, it just felt like we were not important. It's a shame too because we were celebrating my uncle's 82nd birthday. He is visiting from out of state and I wanted him to experience a nice time. I had been to the Biltmore's Brunch before and bragged about it. I wanted my uncle to have that experience. Unfortunately, none of us did. By the way, we were only a party of 3
Beautiful place, however the service was horrible they dirty plates were never being picked up! We had to ask for champagne all the time and basically we were being ignored by untrained staff!
After complaining to the manager, he gave us a 20% discount on the bill but added 18% gratuity!
Won't go back, much prefer the Breakers brunch!
Went to brunch at the Biltmore in Miami, great food and service. It was a little cold when we got there (around 60 degrees for outside dining), but once the sun came out it warmed up the entire place. It's a bit pricey ($90 a person), but the food is a treat and there's so many choices. I will probably wait a couple of years before I go back, but it was wonderful.
The selection of food is outstanding. I always enjoy the complimentary champagne which is of a good quality. I do think the pricing of the brunch is over the top for children aged 12 at $85 +--they do not indulge in the champagne or cocktails and do not (if my grandchildren are any indication) go for the more expensive items on offer.
The place is good and different, but overall I would say it is not outstanding. Service is excellent, food is average, ambiance is nice. However, the place needs a renovation immediately if they want to continue charging $$$$ prices for their brunch. Doors are dirty and show a lot of damage by overtime use; many walls everywhere had cracks, holes or faded paint, ceramic floors are old and kind of damaged or moldy in some areas. Long walks from dinning terrace/porch to food tables areas, but I guess that is unavoidable given the layout and architecture of the building is a neo-colonial style with the central patio and rooms around. In general I believe it is not a bad choice but its not upscaled either as people says and it is also over-rated and over-priced.
Everything was amazing, I really wanted to go. I wouldn't recommend it for a pregnant woman. I had a lot of difficulties picking my food, and I would suggest to have more organic and grass fed items, also almond milk.. may be it's just me i Would go back after my baby is born. thank you for the anniversary desert it was really nice :)
Friend who lives within area told us about this place. Very nice place for brunch. There's two sides, breakfast food and regular food. I started off with the breakfast side. The food was cold. My French toast was so hard from sitting out so long I couldn't even bit into it. We then had to keep searching for our waiter when we needed more water or drinks. He was not attentive at all. I tried the other side. The mac and cheese was also cold. I was very disappointed. The plus said was that the dessert were amazing. The only thing I had that wasn't cold. I'm not quit sure if I would ever recommend this restaurant to anyone until I give it a second try maybe my experience would be better. However, paying $400 for cold food at brunch and bad service definitely not worth it.
