The Dining Room - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
Five course tasting menu was inspired. Soup was exceptional as we're two of the fish dishes. The cheese first dish was bland and the lamb, while a delicious sauce was tough. The highlight of the meal was the awesome ice cream dessert. Our waiter, Hank, was extraordinary and made the whole experience a delight.
Most enchanting views I've ever experienced in a restaurant. Food is locally/regionally sourced and prepared expertly. Presentation is impressive--food is an art (not a science) here and this is evident in all that comes out of the kitchen. Three kinds of bread were offered, focaccia, cheese puff, and wheat roll--I especially loved the roll--and all paired well with the butter from a local farm. The spring carrot w/ ginger soup was the perfect appetizer after getting caught in a downpour in the village. The filet mignon was lovely, though it did not quite melt in my mouth. That is the only reason for my 4-star rating. The Dining Room does not specialize in steaks, so I was not disappointed, but I have had better. For dessert, I chose the chocolate cheesecake with blueberries and an orange drizzle. Topped with pieces of dark and white chocolate and a scoop of sherbet, the pastry chef easily earns all 5 stars. I could only eat half of it--very generous serving. Not too rich either, the cake had a regular graham cracker crust (not chocolate graham). I enjoyed coffee with dessert, and this was an extra treat, as the coffee was delightfully strong--do not leave the Estate without having a cup (it is the Biltmore's own roast). Well done, and thanks to The Dining Room for a meal that was worthy of the setting.
The restaurant was elegantly decorated and very nice. We chose the 3 course meal and the server was helpful in picking out the specialties. We took her advice and the first course of melon was outstanding. We chose the filet and garlic potatoes for second course and the steak was very good, good presentation of the potatoes but skimpy serving. The peach dessert was also very good and recommended by the server. Prepare to spend a couple of hours but worth the time.
The food was very well presented, with tasty, imaginative ingredients. Hats off to the chef for creativity. The food was well presented, with excellent table settings. The Service was timely and expertly attended. In summary, the meal was an excellent example of the difference between eating and "fine dining". The final touch was when our dessert plate came with a special "Happy Anniversary" wish written in chocolate!
Totally enjoyed the experience. The staff was efficient, professional and quite helpful in describing the wines, and the various courses of the meal. The ambience was of the elegant dining of the 1930s.
Food was first rate; reminiscent of a meal one might see on any Iron Chef competition.
I mentioned to some of the staff ( in the afternoon) that this occasion was an anniversary. The wait staff used our names and remembered the occasion throughout the dinner that evening.
Thought the quality of the food for the price was very low. Have had much higher quality meals for less than one-half the cost. I new what the price was going to be in advance and expected more. Definitely would not return or recommend.
Fortunately the rest of our stay at Biltmore , including the other meals in Antler Village was very good and we enjoyed it.
The Dining Room at The Inn on Biltmore Estate always delivers on quality and service. We continue to visit Biltmore year after year. Sometimes for special events, sometimes to be pampered. In this case, we chose to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary at The Inn dining room. Cocktails were perfectly mixed and the three course dinner was amazing. The filet was expertly prepared and presented. The salmon entree was equally impressive. Elizabeth and staff executed perfectly right down to the wine pairings. Cannot wait to return.
The Dining Room at the Biltmore really made our 43rd wedding anniversary special. The food and service far exceeded our expectations, and it was the highlight of our trip to Asheville. Thank you to everyone who played a part in making our anniversary dinner an experience we will never forget. Amazing!
While it was a rainy day, there is no better view than sitting by the windows at The Inn at Biltmore. It's a special place for sure. Our server was knowledgeable about the wines and menu items. The food was very good but I can't say it was especially unique or imaginative. We enjoyed it very much, especially the cheese plate for dessert.
It's worth the trip to come for something special to celebrate. I think there were 3 birthdays and 1 anniversary being celebrated there tonight
Staff was pleasant. Food was good, but on the pricey side. 3 courses for $65. Ambience would have been better if we were seated at a table by a window. The appeal of the restaurant is the views. In addition a waiter was speaking to his table for some time & we could hear his entire conversation. A little disconcerting for a private romantic dinner.
We enjoyed the food and the service very much. The venue certainly compares with other fine dining sites such as the Greenbrier Resort on WV. The staff members were very professional, the presentation appealing, and the additions of complimentary sparking wine and an after dinner treat were welcomed. We were somewhat disappointed with the seating as we were at the least favorable table, and the base of the staircase in the middle of all traffic when there were several other table selections available. Other than that, the experience was vary favorable. Thank you for the evening.
The service at the Inn is by far the best I have ever received at any restaurant in Asheville. The view and surroundings is the nicest I have ever seen in Asheville. It was a wonderful experience and it is obvious they strive for perfection.
The one thing I was not impressed with was the menu provided for vegetarians. The selection was minimal and surprising for a five star restaurant..
This was our first visit to the Biltmore Estate. We chose to experience this restaurant, even though a bit pricey, as a special one-time treat. The setting was elegant, with a beautiful view, the service was professional, yet friendly, well timed for each course. Definitely recommend! Each course was a lovely display, such as I have never seen before! The staff made us feel special, as if we were their only concern for the evening.
My husband and I dined here for our 4th Wedding Anniversary. It has become our favorite restaurant and we try to dine here during each visit to The Biltmore Estate. We love it so much that we held our wedding dinner in the private dining room 4 years ago. The service is second to none and each and every person you encounter aim to make this a truly one of a kind experience. Our server Elizabeth was phenomenal and made our night very special. Hank has always been a mainstay for us from the first time we dined, our wedding and this night. The food was extraordinary from the amuse bouche to the creative appetizers, to the melt in your mouth filet to the delicious desserts, I dare you to have a better all encompassing meal! We cannot wait to schedule our next visit to the Inn and our reservation at the Dining Room.
The ambiance and service are wonderful. We started with the risotto which was good, but not outstanding. The choices of apps was not ver good. My husband could not find anything so he settled for risotto. He doesn't like foie gras or raw meats or fish so the choices were limited. My entree, salmon, was incredible, one of the best I have had - very salty and delicious herbs. He had the chicken breast which was dry like chicken breasts are. I could not eat dessert I was so full. My husband had the chocolate ice cream and loved it. Overall, it was really good. My husband is a picky eater so he had a little trouble with the menu, but I thought it was very good.
