The Dining Room - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
The dining room at the Inn on Biltmore is one of the true elegant dining rooms in the Asheville area. We love having dinner there as the food is wonderful, the ambiance is outstanding, and the service is excellent. Our thanks to all the staff, especially our waiter, Hank, for another outstanding anniversary dinner. It was truly a memorable occasion!!!! We look forward to future dinners in that lovely setting.
Food is delicious. They offer a three or a five course menu with great choices in each category. We chose the 5 course meal. We both enjoyed each of our courses. The atmosphere is perfect for a romantic evening. I really enjoyed being able to look over the mountain range. Definitely recommend!
Elegant setting with spectacular views best describe this romantic dining room that almost seems like a past era. The service is professional and attentive but not obtrusive. We started the evening with martinis that were generous and very reasonably priced for a resort setting. We chose the 3 course menu and it was more than sufficient. Our choices for appetizers were foi grass and risotto. We selected filet and rack of lamb for the main course. We selected the cheese tray followed by the salted caramel cheesecake and shared both. Everything was truly excellent, perfectly prepared and wonderfully presented. Loved it for our special night. We are local and will return often. Only drawback is that you must be a season pass holder or pay the admission fee to the Estate. It didn't used to be that way and I feel it is unfair to such an outstanding restaurant to make it impossible for locals to dine without being members...especially in low season.
My husband I celebrated our Anniversary. We have have eaten many times in the Library but this was the first time in the "Dining Room". The service was top notch and our servers were attentive and answered the questions. I had the Lamb, it was to die for. Cooked the way i ordered and very flavorful.
The chef wrote Happy Anniversary in chocolate on my dessert plate, very special.
I do like the fixed menu. This way you had no surprises when the bill came.

My husband and I enjoyed the ambience and delicious food. The wait staff were very professional. We had a lovely relaxing 3 course meal which was superb. The setting in the hills was beautiful. We watched the sunset while sipping a delightful sauvignon blanc from the on sight winery.
The staff was very attentive and polite from the ones who greeted and seated us to the servers. I liked that they discribed each dish in each course as they delivered it. Staff graciously offered to get a picture of us together so we can save the memory. A very relaxing enjoyable meal. Everything was cooked to perfection. Will definitely recommend it to friends as a one in a lifetime dining experience.
One of our most favorite restaurants in Asheville to celebrate a special occasion. We were a little disappointed at first because our request for a window table was not accommodated even though we had an early dinner reservation and made a special request days in advance. The server we had was impeccable, however. Truly high class, friendly, informative and very accommodating with wine recommendations and tastings.
The price fixe menu was superb with the exception of dessert. My husband's lamb and my salmon was amazing. The appetizer course was likewise noteworthy with plenty of options. Both of our desserts though, a chocolate/peanut butter cake and carrot cake tasted like carrots in my case and peanuts in my husbands. Just note extraordinary at all and rather bland. Hmm. But I still rate this restaurant as on of my favorites when in town.
Disappointed. The first courses were very good. I ordered the steak and it was overcooked and dry, almost like an inexperienced cook pressed down on it and purged the juices. The carrot cake dessert is a very very thin piece of cake, a traditional carrot cake with icing would have been better. Our drink order got messed up, they did compensate for it.
We enjoyed our dinner so much. The staff went above and beyond for us. They did not have any desserts that I liked on the menu but the upstairs lounge did and they went out of their way to go upstairs and get me the dessert I wanted. They were so very kind to us. The filet and mashed potatoes was outstanding.
Service was excellent!! Appetizers, risotto and onion soup, were spectacular. Generous entree portions. My wife's monkfish was perfect. I ordered my filet on the rare side of medium rare. Was medium at best. Deserts were a C+. Ambiance and views were great.
We have dined here in the past and will continue to do so in the future. A very comfortable dining room, impeccable service, and wonderful food. Our waiter, Hank, made us feel so very welcome, as if we were guest in his own home. Thank You for the fabulous evening.
Beautiful setting, perfect service, and fabulous food combine to make this a memorable dining experience! We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Every aspect of the evening is equal to the great restaurants of Europe. The presentation of each dish is artistic in addition to being delicious. Highly recommended.
This was an anniversary dinner and we were quite disappointed with the food quality. The lamb crust was very salty and both appetizers were also disappointing. My steak was fine. This is our second dinner at the inn, the first last year was excellent in all ways. We will not be as anxious to return, especially after spending a large amount to stay the night in your beautiful hotel.
We have wonderful memories made in this hotel and resturant. Spectacular views and the service is impeccable. Ambiance, service, and wine list alone....is cream of the cream. The young man, who escorted us to the table, was genuine and a joy. Can't remember his name, but he was 1 of 9 children!! Elizabeth (Liz) was our server and was simply the BEST. She knows the menu and choices and was easy to work with. Desmond was the ideal gentleman and never missed a beat.
We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. The hostess was kind enough to make certain we had a nice private table with ideal view of the Biltmore grounds. All of our food was perfect temperature and beautifully presented. The black forest dessert was absolutley delicious. The only glitch in our dinner was my salmon dish was a bit salty. So much so that I did mention to Liz. She was gracious and remedied the issue quickly. We will return on our next anniversary, Lord willing.
First, I am not a huge fine-dining fan, so take this all in context. I did like the way they charged for their dinners, based on a choice of either a 3 or 5 course meal. Also, the prices were reasonable. I was disappointed that I couldn't get a steak - they did have filet mignon, but no steak. I ordered the salmon and was abhorred to see if served with a covering of what looked exactly like dishwater suds. I was told it was a smoked foam, but I brushed it off as well as I could and proceeded from there.
Monday evening is not the ideal time to eat at any restaurant, and this is no exception. We tried to get a 7:00 reservation but were told that they could only seat us at 8:30. Hmmm, the Inn was not very full. Anyway, when we arrived, there were approximately 4 other tables in the entire restaurant where people were seated. We were seated at a table right next to the elevators and welcome desk. We asked to be seated elsewhere and were taken to another table. After that, the service here was excellent. They were out of several items on the menu (Monday ?) but had substitutions. The appetizers and salads were absolutely wonderful. The combination of flavors were worth going to this restaurant. The entrees, however, left much to be desired. I ordered a chicken dish that we horrible! It was dried out and very salty. I could not eat it. The items accompanying the dish were, however, superb. I would try eating here on a different night, but overall we were disappointed.
