Unique dining experience. Food good, service good.
We did have a reservation but had to wait 30 min like all walk ups. We were placed on same list as walk ups and hostess did not care that we had a reservation or give us priority.

Made reservation to avoid waiting for a table. Was escorted directly to a table. Waiter came soon for our drink orders and selection. Waiter was very personable. The chicken dish was a good homecooked meal. My wife and I enjoyed our meal in the stables of the Biltmore.

We were there for lunch and it was very busy. Ordered the bbq plate for 2. It was much more than we expected. You should have a hearty appetite if you order this. The ribs and roasted chicken were done to perfection but we couldn't fit the pulled pork.

Ambiance is very good dining in a restored stall. Dining partner thought the chicken salad was excellent. My turkey reuben was cold and the cheese wasn't melted. Seemed like the marble rye bread was toasted and the turkey pastrami, cheese and arugula placed inside the toasted bread. We also felt like we were rushed even though we ate lunch early when restaurant was nearly empty.

Very nice restaurant for lunch at Biltmore Estate. I had the buffalo burger - it was cooked perfectly and the taste was great. My wife had the chicken salad sandwich which was a bit dry. The taste was fine, but she did not like the overall texture of the sandwich. We were with friends and were seated in a stall which added to the experience. Overall, we were pleased with the restaurant, the food and the wait staff. I recommend the Stable Café for anyone visiting Biltmore Estate.
A good time was had by all
We eat at the Stable Cafe each time we visit Biltmore, telling ourselves we will try another location on the estate... but never do. Now that we are passholders and can return as often as we like, maybe we will but for now, the Cafe still remains a favorite lunch place when visiting Biltmore.
Delicious food in a wonderful atmosphere!
Thankful we had a reservation as the wait was getting longer quickly. We were able to walk right in and get seated. Service was incredible. The food was brought out in a timely manner. Absolutely delicious food plus they had vegetarian options(one of my children) and a children's menu(the other one). I would definitely eat there again!
Try the sampler!
You have to try the sampler! It has rotisserie chicken, bar b-q and ribs. All were absolutely delicious. Even though we were there on Easter Sunday and it was really busy, we were seated right away and the service was exceptional. I would highly recommend The Stables, but from what I experienced at Biltmore...you can't go wrong with anything on the Estate.
Great ambiance. Fast service.
This was a surprise. The venue is the old stables attached to the Biltmore estate. The stalls and still visible and add great ambiance. For a restaurants this large, the service was surprisingly quick and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Not as cheap as the self-serve options close by but worth it.

The Stable is an extension of one's visit to the Biltmore Estate and serves very good food. It is cool how the actual stables were converted into an eating space. We were seated immediately on arrival despite a crowded dining room. A reservation is highly recommended.
Expensive, But Good and Convenient to the Estate
I had the Fontina Grilled Cheese with the White Bean Soup and my husband had the Classic Burger with fries. We were still full 7 hours later, even after walking the grounds of the estate and Antler Hill. Granted, those two items were about $40 with tip, but it was worth the experience. The food there is nothing to play with. It will fill you up most definitely. However, if you are going to come here on the weekend, I suggest you get a reservation. You will wait if you don't.
Candlelight Dinner at the Stable Cafe/Biltmore
We had dinner at the Stable Café before our Candlelight Tour of the Biltmore House, and it was a wonderful evening. The novelty of dining in the former stable was such fun, and our server Faye took great care of us. She conveyed special dietary needs to the Chef and the food was perfect.
Hard to beat the distinctive appearance of the place. I didn't experience it enough to evaluate all the aspects listed in the section above. I thought the prices were a bit high for the quality of the food. My filet mignon was a bit tough and chewy. The side dishes were ordinary. The chocolate cheesecake, however, was divine. Waitstaff was attentive but rather remote and business-like. If I am able to return to Biltmore, I may try it again for lunch since it is right there adjacent to the house, but I doubt I would return there for dinner.
Good food & service; bad table location
Even with a reservation, (and tables downstairs we watched stay vacant our entire meal) we were seated in the worst table upstairs in the loft. The table was right at the hostess stand and across from the door. We were constantly having people standing next to our table (hello hostess--put them somewhere else) staring at us or just generally in our space. The frequently opening door also caused a draft.
Overpriced and mediocre
We had dined at the Stable several years ago and loved it, so we made reservations again for this visit. Online the description was as we remembered it, southern comfort food. There was no indication that this was not the dinner menu, nor could I access the menu online. So we were very surprised and disappointed when we arrived to find a pre-fix menu with the least expensive entree being $38 dry roasted chicken. There was not a single item my children would have been interested in, and our server was not pleased to give us a children's menu because they are 11 and 13. The entire menu was overpriced for mediocre food. We would not recommend, specifically if you are dining with your children.
This restaurant was so unique and fun! The food was great and we sat in one of the converted stalls! It was great! I would recommend for families or couples and we had some of the Biltmore wine which was fabulous! Our kids ages 13, 16 and 20 were in love with the idea it used to be a true horse stable.
We loved eating lunch at the Stable Cafe. It was neat to see the old stables. Food was excellent. I had the Quinoa and Arugula Salad which was very tasty. Service was great thanks to our very attentive server, Paula! Recommend reservations to ensure you have a table.
Stables Cafe a Big Disappointment
Great ambiance, great service! However, the food was just ok and the portions were small. I had the filet and I could have done better at a chain. Considering that I paid $49--it was very disappointing. It was their Candlelight Christmas menu. I feel like they took advantage of those eating there. Word to the wise, you are much better off eating at a local restaurant!
Great Gathering Place
Family gathered for lunch before tour. Very nice waitress named Susie. She was right on the ball and took care of all 11 of us in a timely manner. The one and only disappointment was the pulled pork. Bland and tough. Other than that everything else was super!
Husband collects pens so Susie treated him and others at the table to pens from Biltmore. Even mentioned a military discount could be used and my husband is a disabled cancer survivor from the Vietnam war. This is our second family visit in 16 yrs. and it will be a beautiful memory for all. Thank you!
Stable Cafe, 12/14/15
While we booked a reservation though Open Table, when we arrived and checked on the reservation, one could not be found. However, we were told that there would not be a problem in getting seated at the reserved time, 5 PM.
As it turned out, we were fine, dinner was great.
