Stable Cafe -Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
This is the third time eating at the stable cafe We made reservations for 8 people at 8:00 because that was the max amount of people you could reserve a table for. By the way they were busy. I had a party of 16 and we were done early on our Biltmore tour at 7:15. The staff at cafe said give us a few minutes and by 7:25 they had pulled tables together so all 16 of us could sit together and sat us early. Food was excellent!!! Service was excellent!! A lady at a table next to us asked their server " can you do me a favor? " and before she told the server what the favor was the server replied "absolutely". That is customer service. There are a lot of great restaurants around the Asheville area But, if you want an excellent dining experience, great food, and a staff that is in the " yes " business please dine at The Stable Cafe.
We ordered the rotisserie chicken. What they brought us was more the size of a cornish hen. I ordered the leg quarter and my FIL ordered the breast, for the money they should be embarassed what they served us. My MIL ordered the chicken salad, portion was ok, but would've liked a choice of dressing for the salad and my husband had the burger. The bread could have been a little fresher. All in all, it was high prices and the food was of average quality and below average portions. It's a place you go for the experience, but not the food.
I've eaten at The Stable Cafe for many different occasions and my latest visit was on a girl's weekend outing. The food is delicious and we were lucky enough to reserve one of the two window tables in the upstairs dining room. The view of The Biltmore Estate was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Highlights included the Holiday Sangria and Warm Pimento Cheese Dip.
Our visit was very pleasant. They had no record of our reservation but there was no problem to be seated and served immediately. Our food was delicious and generous portions. Our server was courteous and did a good job. She was not as friendly as some other servers but she took care of us without any problems. We left the restaurant for the Candlelight Tour and it was the perfect place to dine.
Great service/prompt seating. Food was good but nothing outstanding. Biggest plus is that it is part of the BILTMORE HOUSE complex so it was very convenient to have dinner there before touring the house for a Christmas Candlelight tour. A bit overpriced but how do you measure convenience and the setting?
The Stable Cafe at Biltmore Estate is conveniently located adjacent to the estate. We visited after our Candlelight Christmas tour. The website indicated that we could select lighter fare rather than the three course prix fixe menu offered at other Biltmore restaurants. That is why we selected The Stable Cafe in the first place. However, we were unhappy to find that The Stable Cafe offered the same menu as the other restaurants--the website was incorrect. We decided to stay, even though three courses were more than we wanted to eat. My ravioli was very good, but my husband's roast chicken was tough without much flavor. The price was fairly high, but not surprising considering where we were.
The best part of the evening was our server. She was outstanding in every way--she knew the menu well and was attentive without being obtrusive.
The decor of the converted stable was well done. Many parts of the original stable were left as is, which gave the restaurant great character. The atmosphere and location are quite a draw.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable visit. I must say the food was excellent. The service was prompt and friendly. The overall experience was very delightful. I would recommend the Stable Cafe to all. The dining experience was a perfect addition to the Biltmore experience.
My favorite restaurant on the Biltmore Estate. Used Open Table for reservation, had 5 min wait before being seated. Excellent, prompt service. Menu offers plenty of choice, and meals are heavier, comfort food, which I prefer during the fall/winter season. 3 people in our party, all satisfied with experience.
We were visiting Asheville for a seminar and I need to eat gluten free for medical reasons. There were several options, including dessert. The food was expensive but the quality made it well worth it. Service was exceptional and I will eat there again next time I'm in town. Veterans receive a 10% discount if you ask and have ID.
We had Donna as our waitress, she was amazing. Donna made our lunch a wonderful experience. My friend & I came for passholder shopping day and came to the Stable Cafe for lunch and was greeted by Donna who was the greatest waitress. I hope I will get Donna as my waitress again. Thanks so much!
Booth was too cramped. Food overpriced for what was received . menu items not available were not advised prior to ordering. Staff not very attentive or informative.
The pimento cheese dip was very good. Would suggest having some soft bread slices as well as the crisps.
Restaurant is a part of the Biltmore House, in the old stable, and is absolutely the best place to eat lunch on the grounds if you are in the middle of touring the Biltmore House. Food is good, ambience is good, although if crowded the noise level can get a bit high. Service was excellent.
The Stable Cafe at the Biltmore is truly a cozy and tasty find. The fact that it was previously a stable just adds to the charm! The food is amazing and the decorations during the holiday season are beautiful! The menu has a great range from easy and quick sandwiches to hearty and robust meals. Everything was delicious and the staff were friendly and engaging.
I reserved a party of six and needed a high chair. The staff was wonderful and had a table available when we arrived 30 minutes early. Our waiter was pleasant and checked on us several times during our meal to make sure we did not need drink refills, other needs. Our family had a memorable lunch, food was served warm and delicious!
Had a reservation but given a beeper when we arrived. Waited a half hour and saw people show up with reservations seated right away. When I questioned what was happening were seated right away. We were offered an free appetizer and then the waitress took 10% more off our bill. The service was great and this was definitely a great Service recovery by the staff at the Stable. We would recommend and go back.
