Although my turkey sandwich was good, I wish there had been more healthy options. I left off the cheese and aioli sauce but would have preferred something else. Maybe some fruit options vs. chips for a side. My husband's barbeque sandwich was good and as always the atmosphere is unique and enjoyable. Service was excellent! thank you

I was quite disappointed with our trip to the Stable Cafe. The food was pretty bad and the service was worse. Also, the table where we were seated was literally falling apart. I don't think we'll be going he.re again

We recently dined at the Stable Cafe while visiting Biltmore Estate. The food was great for the occasion and the service was excellent. Our waitress accommodated our time constraints graciously and effectively. The food quality was wonderful and the atmosphere was terrific too. This is a spot you should dine at while visiting Biltmore.

Place is like an open Bier Hall so that's one strike against it. Also, server was w-a-y too open with why they were out of this or that (like elk), that they took to deep-frying the roasted chicken to keep up with the (unexpected) demands, and so on. Also didn't know the menu (e.g., if you had the wine pairings you should get a full glass of dinner wine), and had too many "don't recommends". I do not recommend this place to anyone.

Very disappointed! The food was very expensive and was not good at all. I don't mind paying high prices if the food is good. Our steaks were extremely thin and overcooked. The service was terrible and very slow. Our waiter seemed overworked and was not friendly. We will not return.

Had dinner at Stables after the Biltmore Candlelight tour. It is a large restaurant, if looking for something intimate, this is not the place. I suggest you make reservation, they were very busy and people without reservations were told to come back after 8 pm. We arrived early for our reservation and only place to sit prior to your reservation is in hall way around shops. There is not a bar / lounge to sit in. Check out menu online, adult meals are all 3 course meals (appetizer, entrée and dessert). You cannot just order smaller meals. It is expensive. The staff is friendly and efficient. It is worth eating at once, but will probably not try again.

My family took me here for my birthday. I chose this restaurant because my daughter is an avid horse rider and I knew she would love the ambiance. We asked for a booth so we could eat in one of the stalls and we were accommodated immediately. Having been in the food and beverage industry as a manager for years, the service and timeliness of the food was impeccable. I was very impressed by our server Christine. Although the restaurant was full, she made us feel like we were the only ones there with light conversation and making sure I celebrated my day with a delightfully decorakted dessert.
We will definitely be back in the Spring.

We had a nice lunch after our Biltmore tours. We had reservations and they got us right in. We had the hamburgers and they were great! Our server was very attentive and gave us awesome service! We will definitely recommend this restaurant to others!

Veggies were so mushy it was almost baby food consistency. Of the four dishes my family ordered, two were "unavailable" and we had to pick something else from the limited menu. Fish was overcooked. The kids meal ended up being the best and my whole family ended up picking from my son's plate.

I ordered a salad with grilled chicken added. The cicken was entirely dark meat. While l don't mind mixed chicken in casseroles, etc., I DID not like the taste of it mixed with greens and veggies. The waiter did remove it and did not charge me for it. The only grilled chicken I have ever been served, anywhere, on a salad has been breast meat. I was surprised to see it was all dark meat. Everything else we had was delicious. That is the best Pimento Cheese spread I have ever tasted. I would love to have that recipe!

One of our favorite lunch places when we visit the Biltmore House. This time my go to lunch - chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies weren't as yummy as usual. The chicken wasn't its usual moist self, rather it was dry and the fabulous buttermilk mashed potatoes were gluey. I didn't share this with our server as my husband was thoroughly enjoying his hamburger and perfectly done fries and I didn't want to spoil that. We each had a glass of Biltmore Estate Sangiovese which was a good accompaniment. We will return on our next visit.

We love Biltmore. We are Passholders and have been for several years. We typically eat at Cedric's which is our favorite. Cedric's was booked so we choose the Stable. We kept our reservations. The restaurant was decorated beautifully. We were seated and told that the evening menu was a set menu (pre fixe). There was no information prior to our reservation, in our confirmation email or at the door to let us know prior to being seated. It was very disappointing as we would not have chosen this type of meal for our family. We left a nice tip for the waiter who was very nice and polite and took our leave. I'm sure we will at some point return to the Stable but we will be certain to ask ahead of time about the menu.

Overall, Stable Cafe was a disappointing experience. My expectations were high given that we were dining at the Biltmore a few days before Christmas. It was, at best, an overpriced menu designed for high volume. I will not return. There are many other places in Asheville that are exceptional.

This is very convenient after a tour of the Biltmore estate - the food was pretty good - generous portions. It is a bit expensive for lunch - I fed 6 people and it was over $100. It is a large venue, so seating was no wait and the service was very good - our server was very friendly and appropriately attentive.

We had reservations, however the hostess said if you made the reservations after 9AM then I don't have you on my list? Thanks goodness there was not a wait. I guess you should make reservations early or not expect them to have you on the reservation list.
