Cedric's Tavern - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
Great place for dinner while staying at Biltmore, with upscale Pub Grub, and plenty of atmosphere! Ate there with a couple of my friends...I had the Steak And Tots, which was perfectly cooked . They had the Fish and Chips, and the chicken dish, all of which were delicious! Loved that you could choose a wine flight and sample 3 different Biltmore wines with dinner!
We made reservations for the outdoor seating but when we got there they told us that there is no reservations for the outdoor that it is first come first serve. We had 5 and elderly couple so we wanted to sit along the wall. So she said she could sit us indoors. I asked her if they could put 2 tables together and she seemed a little bit annoyed by that and so did the server. She said we would have to wait 10 minutes so that the server had time for us. But there was only 1 other table out there so I was confused by that. But they did, it was a very nice lunch and the food was wonderful. We have enjoyed the atmosphere there and the food is always good!!
Had reservations and checked in early (10 minutes) and given a pager and were told we had to wait for a table to be cleaned. Ten minutes AFTER our reservation time I had to go ask the hostess when we would be seated. They asked again for my name and I told her and showed her the pager. So 20 minutes after arriving and 10 minutes past the reservation time we were finally seated without any concern or apologies for the wait. Plus we observed several two top tables open during our wait which made this even more frustrating. Food was good, server was very attentive and prices were a little high (bison burger and fries $22)...
Would have been a great evening to dine outdoors. We were seated and then asked to be moved inside because the band on the green was so loud and music so bad it wasn't tolerable. Cedric's has gotten more expensive. Menu has become quite limited. Still nice for a glass of wine in the afternoon.
We had made a reservation but still needed to wait about 30 minutes for outside seating. The inside seating was a small table in a dark area of the restaurant. This was disappointing. Once we were seated, however, albeit at a table much larger than what was needed, the service and food were very good.
We went to dinner to celebrate my mom's bday and the food and service was not great. The fish and chips was good however the risotto was horrible. The server was not really happy and at the end they didn't acknowledge my mom's bday like I ask when i book the reservation and at the restaurant. Next time we are at the Biltmore we will try another one of their restaurants. We don't recommend this restaurant.
The tavern was very well decorated and was comfortable. The service was excellent and the beer was delicious, The tomato soup was out of this world. My salmon tartar dish was delicious!!! My husband's wings were just OK. They did not have a lot of meat on them and the skin was chewy. The flavor was very good.
The ambience and staff were very friendly. They have some of the best Bloody Marys around. However, the pork chops and salmon had great flavor but were very fatty. Considering the edible parts of the meat the overall value is questionable. I would consider eating there again and ordering something different.
Fish and chips were spot on. I would not recommend steak & tots - although beef was at the right temperature, the choice of cut was tough and the tots overcooked. Appetizer of Buffalo calamari was excellent. Dessert Blondie Brownie, a deconstructed version, was not ideal and won't be ordered again. Atmosphere was great with outside dining. Service outstanding.
My daughter and I had supper at Cedric's after a long day of diving and sightseeing. Our waitress was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Our food was delicious but a little pricey which was expected since we were steps away from the Village Hotel that is located on the Biltmore Estate. I thought the live music would be a little loud but it did not interfere with our conversation. We will definitely go again when the rest of the family can join us.
Although the food was good it was overpriced for the portions and ambiance. Our server was unenthusiastic, never smiled and really made the dining experience awkward. It was nice to have children's menu options but the price of entrees was far beyond what you get. I would recommend visiting the bar and having a quick bite...didn't live up to the rest of our Biltmore experience.
Overall disappointing visit. Positives: ambience was nice, outside seating definitely a plus. Walking proximity to Biltmore Village Hotel was convenient. Local beer, and wine choice( produced on premises), was excellent. Negatives; service was good, not at the level expected for a moderately high-priced establishment. Food was extremely disappointing. Specifically: Pretzel
Rolls, ( bread), were extremely dry, and almost stale. Mustard/butter dip for them
had good flavor however. Shepherds Pie', was very, 'watery', somewhat bland, and small, almost cup-sized portion for moderate/ high price. 'Sunday roast', (chicken, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding), was very overdone. Yorkshire Pudding was actually black/burnt, roast chicken overdone to the point of dry and inedible, and was sent back. The manager was accommodating however, and did offer us one free dessert, which we declined, and subsequently took the overdone meal off our bill. We we so disappointed, we cancelled our subsequent evenings'dinner reservations there. We had anticipated a bit higher standard from an establishment on the Biltmore Estate.
On the grounds in Biltmore Village in Biltmore Estates, Cedric's Tavern is one of three very nice restaurants located here along with the winery. The view of mountains surrounding the area here in Asheville is beautiful this time of the year. Cedric name comes from the dog owned by the Vanderbilt s the built Biltmore. The food was just right for a early lunch and there is a wide selection to choose from. I had a Rubin sandwich with all local and in-house ingredients served on house baked rye bread along with home baked potato chips. Local beer was very good and the wife had her Chin Bach Biltmore wine the went with her ham burger and potato fries. We will be returning to Cedric's soon.
