The Dining Room - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
We were entertaining a friend, and this was the perfect spot for excellent ambiance and a delicious meal. We all chose the 3 course option, and our entrees (salmon and fillet) were perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The appetizers were fabulous and our ice cream trio desserts were the perfect way to end our dinner. The service was, as always elegant.
This was an excellent location for a romantic dinner. We celebrated our 23 year anniversary. The meal was excellent. The service was amazing. They even provided small bites as complements from the chef to cleanse the pallet. Their food was so refined and the taste was excellent. For dessert they even wrote happy anniversary on the rim of the plate. The whole night was a food experience to remember.
Food was great, dry pricey, felt rushed, had a waiter who had too many tables, was not attentive. Asked for an ice tea and my husband got A $20 glass of wine, never got my wine, drank water, asked for the bread 4 times until we got some then he brought our bill, laid 2 tiny dessert treats on table in plate after we ate dessert, other waiters were giving people small boxes and these were treats for later. That's the way we always got them, this was our 7th time there, was my husbands 79th birthday, wanted it to be special, was average, a lot of money for average, always a pleasant experience in past, disappointed
We had very high expectations for the 3-course dinner, and although it was very good, we were somewhat disappointed. In large measure this was because the pinot noir recommended to us by the waiter did not pair well with our scallops sauteed in duck fat. The desserts were creative but not altogether successful (beet sorbet with one dessert and corn ice cream with another). The setting was perfect, however.
Waiter was courteous and said the right things, but didn't know how to pour wine, letting it dribble down the side of the bottle both at the beginning of pouring and at the end. Too much wine on the tabled cloth and his towel at all four places. No respect for $120 wine.
Everything was exquisite. The views toward Pisgah were stunning. Questions were expertly answered. We (two couples) were celebrating 49th anniversaries and had looked forward to the special evening, and it was just that. Lots of unique touches to make us feel valued. The varied menu allowed us to try things that we had never had before--all delicious. The chef sent out "tastes" for us to try. Our server, Luke, was attentive and ever ready to respond without hovering. Kamor was just as attentive. A memorable evening.
Enjoyed a great evening to celebrate 34 years of marriage. Luke did a great job recommending and directing us through our choices and providing excellent service. The food we felt was well portioned, had the 3 course option. We always appreciate when we are recognized as "locals" and get the local treatment. We will definitely return at another time, likely with good friends in tow.
My husband and I have eaten at a great deal of fine dining establishments. We travelled to the Biltmore for a romantic weekend getaway and decided to treat ourselves to a decadent meal at The Dining Room. We each ordered the five course meal. The food was mediocre at best. The service was slow, and somewhat discombobulated. The overall experience was absolutely lousy, making it the worst restaurant experience we've ever had. I don't mind paying $300 for an amazing meal and remarkable service, but paying $300 for food that was barely pedestrian and service was that inexcusably sloppy is just nauseating.
We always enjoy the dining room at the Biltmore Inn. This time took friends. Had a prix fixe meal with risotto, tomato bisque, lamp chops, scallops amongst 4 of us. Plus dessert is always delicious. Best of all is our long-time waiter and friend, Hank. He always takes the best care of us.
My wife and I dined her for her birthday. We've been fortunate to have dined in some of the finest restaurants in the world, and our experience at the Dining Room was comparable to some of those fine experiences. The service was outstanding, and our primary server, Brandon, did a fantastic job. The food was excellent. My wife is gluten sensitive and they were very knowledgeable about the accommodations that the chef could make on each menu item. Also, they brought here some of the best gluten free breads that she's had anywhere.
This was a great fine dining experience. Each course was excellent. Portions were just adequate. Dessert was big. I had the steak. It was delicious. My wife had lamb chops. All three course were on a gourmet level. One of the best restaurants I had eaten at.
Absolutely outstanding 5-star restaurant by any standard! The food, the service, the ambience all were fantastic. We dined for our 50th anniversary - a very special occasion and I was nervous that it might be less than perfect. I was not disappointed, however. It was one of the outstanding meals of my lifetime and my wife was overwhelmed. I'd recommend it highly for any special event or just an evening of very fine dining.
I was very disappointed in our dining experience. The dining room is beautiful but it was one of the worst meals I had in a long time. We had a group of four celebrating my parents 60th anniversary and I really wanted to do something special for them. The food was so bad I was embarrassed. The hot dish appetizer was pork cheek over cornbread. Both were very over cooked and dry but edible. For the meal, three of us got the filet, and one the scallops. The first problem was the main meal came over an hour after the appetizer was cleared. I enjoy a paced meal but it seemed a bit too long. When the meals came, they were all at room temperature. Totally unacceptable. After such a long wait, none of us decided to send it back. It got worse from there. It was one of the worst cuts of filet I have had in many years. I do not think it would be possible for me to purchase such poor quality in any public market. Additionally, it was totally bland. It seemed like they forgot to season the steak with any salt or pepper and of course, there was not any on the table. The steak was served over mashed potatoes, but I guess they think they are such a fine dining experience that a teaspoon of it smeared on the plate would be fine. There were also green beans with mushrooms that were adequate but slightly over cooked with very little taste. I wont go into details but dessert was no better. The server was apologetic and did comp us our wine which was a nice gesture. Overall, we left hungry and disappointed. I will not go back and would not recommend.
For a fine dining experience the food was subpar. The dishes were overly complex with too many distinct flavors that did not work well together. I ordered the risotto, steak and peach dessert. Risotto was good, but was topped with peppers that did not go well with the rest of the dish. Steak was excellent. The peach dessert was bizarre in its construction, texture and flavors. It was the first time in my life that I chose not to finish my dessert. My wife had the tuna, chicken and ice cream. The tuna was presented in a bowl with several other items that did not go well with the fish. The fish also tasted and smelled as though it were turning bad. Her chicken was cold in the middle and the portion was very small. Smaller portions are to be expected when dining in this kind of restaurant but the chicken portion was meat equivalent of three or four chicken nuggets. Her desert was good. I would not recommend the restaurant despite the wonderful service and mood because the food. My wife, a chef on her own, felt as though the chef was trying much too hard to create unique dishes and present them in unusual ways that the chef forgot that above everything else, the food must first taste good.
My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary getaway at the Inn at Biltmore. The Dining Room was exquisitely decorated. The food was phenomenal and the service outstanding. They made us feel welcome, important and special. We highly recommend The Dining Room at The Inn at Biltmore and look forward to returning.
We made reservations for an early dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The wait staff was phenomenal and food superb. We agreed that we couldn't have had a better experience. We would recommend this dining experience whole-heartedly. Thank you for making our anniversary special.
Food was great, nice presentations. Service okay: appropriate demeanor, sometimes less attentive than expected at this level. Had to ask for more bread when plates empty, left wine menu on table nearly half way through dinner. Oddly only wife got Happy Anniversary plate for dessert.
Wine menu by glass very low end, disappointing.
Kudos to kitchen for having sugar free dessert available other than a fruit plate, and waiter for knowing that was available upon asking. That is something sadly missing from nearly every restaurant we go to, even though 10% of Americans are diabetic.
Value, despite price point! Had the three course dinner and we were plenty full and more than satisfied.
The Biltmore Inn has several places to dine. Wish I had chosen a different restaurant. Our food was mediocre, my s'mores dessert looked repulsive, the service was poor. Our choice was steak accompanied by broccolini and mashed potatoes. A tablespoon of potatoes painted on the plate and three strings of broccolini? The only good thing was a very good Trefthen Cabernet I ordered. We won't be back.
