Cedric's Tavern - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
Arrived on time, gave my name and reservation time. I was told it would be a few minutes. I watched as walk in patrons were seated. After wairing patiently for 15 minuts I went to the hostess again. Clearly I was forgotten. After being seated we started with drinks and appetizer, roasted olives and Welch Rarebit. Neither was memorable.
For our main course, my wife ordered bison burger rare and it was delivered well done. She sent it back and requested the replacement as rare. She is not overly picky as this is only the second time she has ever sent a meal back and I she is 59! The replacement burger came medium well. I ordered the fish and chips which was overcooked and dry. Sadly I told my wide Captain D'S or Long John Silvers was as good, but much less expendive.
The Galic Ale and cider were really excelent. They tried to make things right and comped a drink and the burger which, was a nice gesture.
All in all the experience was disappointing and I would not return nor recommend Cedric's to friends or family.
The staff was friendly and our waiter attentive, but he was evidently rushed because he didn't remember that I told him twice that I can't eat raw onions and the salad arrive - you guessed it -- with onions on top!
Felt that the prices were very high - the entrees were very pricey and didn't even include a side salad - just the entree and a vegetable. The gluten-free options were uninspired and mainly just the regular options with the bread or croutons left off. All-in-all I doubt we'll go back. Our past experiences with restaurants at the Biltmore Estate have been similar - overpriced and the food unexceptional.
we ate at the tavern prior to the Biltmore concert and had a great experience. The waiter suggested the special entree of the night and it was one of the best meals we have had. He even suggested we split the meal since it was a hearty portion and he was absolutely correct. We definitely will return...jp
Our Server, Chris, was outstanding! My mother is disabled, and when we go out often the staff does ot talk to my mom, I guess they think because she is disabled she is dumb. The entire staff treated her with respect the entire time. I wish highly recommend Cedrics for this reason alone. However the food is amazing and the ambiance is second to none.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordabl
Service was excellent, but food not so much. Cedric's Salad was a disappointment. Pretty unremarkable for $13 - felt like a $3 side salad with a $10 Scottish egg on it, though the egg was rather unique. Fish and chips were very good, as usual, though I prefer my chips (fries) a little less limp and a touch more crispy.
My friends and I enjoyed lunch mainly because we had not seen each other in some time. We were, however, quite disappointed in the expensive food. The two entrees were "ok" and the calamari appetizer was "good" but none of it was worth the price. The "side salad" which I ordered along with the appetizer was the biggest disappointment---just torn iceberg lettuce with a few grated carrots, a cherry tomato, and a couple of onion slivers---not at all the "local, farm-to-table" we expect in a Biltmore restaurant! The staff was receptive to my criticism and offered another salad as well as "no charge" for the side salad.
We do realize that Cedric's Tavern is a "tavern" but as long-time Biltmore annual passholders we expect high quality in all areas and restaurants on the Estate. We did not get that during this lunch!
Food was excellent, but the noise level was a little too high to have good conversation with the couple with whom we dined. In all fairness to the restaurant, they were very busy that evening to which that noise level could be attributed. We liked the food and thought we had good service. We will return.
We were staying at the INN at The Biltmore and had and early dinner there. We were seated in a booth under the photo of Cedric, the dog. Our server was ADAM. I can not say enough positive things about Adam. He was knowledgeable, professional, personable.... and excellent seasoned waiter. He added to our experience. The food was DELICIOUS. We had several appetizers, wine and the steak special. Our dinner concluded with a surprise complimentary Bithday dessert. It was outstanding and a true surprise. We chose this restaurant due to the extensive variety of food options. Overall, a most wonderful dinner. Live music was playing in the bar. Great voice, singing 70 tunes. Expensive, but you will pay more for everything while in the Biltmore property.
My family and I are recurring visitors to Cedric's Tavern and they are always wonderful. The fish and chips was perfect - a HUGE portion of beautifully thick white fish which was not greasy and breaded just right. My husband had the Steak & Mac and said the steak was so tender he could cut it with a fork! Definitely try one of their handcrafted cocktails - we recommend the Moscow Mule and the Silver Anniversary Champagne Cocktail, both were delicious. Quinn is a wonderful server - very attentive and personable and we've been lucky enough to have him wait on us a few times. It's definitely worth making a stop at Cedrics when you visit the beautiful Biltmore Estate.
My daughter's mac and cheese had a bunch of liquid and oil in the bottom of it. She could not eat it. Food was just ok - expected more from the Biltmore. We sat outside and could not hear the live music. It would be nice if they added outdoor speakers. Location was a great way to end the day.
I live in Asheville but had never been to this restaurant before. Service and food were very good. I had the vegetable soup, which had great flavor and was very satisfying. The chicken breast in gravy was also very good. Overall very positive. No brainer if you're staying at the Biltmore Estate.
