The Dining Room - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
Exceeded expectations, despite high end ...
Exceeded expectations, despite high end prices. Food quality and prep is comparable to high end restaurants in major cities, much food sourced locally. Ordered carbonara appetizer, filet and lobster main courses. Deserts also excellent. Very slow day in restaurant, service outstanding but not overbearing. Traditional, formal space for quiet, intimate dining.

We've stayed at the Inn and eaten in the dining room nearly every year for our anniversary, and we've never been disappointed. The service is always impeccable, with thoughtful touches, and the food is always top-notch. My wife is a vegetarian, and she is well-accommodated, even on a five-course tasting menu.
My only gripe about the place is that they inflate the price of drinks compared to Biltmore's own establishments just down the hill. For example, a glass of 18-year Macallan and a bottle of Biltmore's California-made "The Hunt" red wine are both $10 more expensive at the Inn compared to The Bistro or Cedric's Pub.
We got a wine flight matched to our 5-course meal this time, and while it doesn't include any top-shelf stuff, it was thoughtfully paired and very tasty.
Will be back again next year!

I was emailed prior to arrival of the dress code for dinner for both men and women. I wore jacket and tie (tie optional). They sat a couple at the table to our right plaid shirt and jeans and to my left in jeans and a long sleeve T shirt. 4 star restaurant I think not

We had a very enjoyable evening at The Dining Room at Biltmore Inn. The staff was very accomodating, friendly and concerned with meeting our needs. The food was well prepared and the presentation quite attractive as well as delicious. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

impeccable service and a limited but interesting prix-fix menu (winter). absolutely a place to dress up for and be a mature, sophisticated grown-up.
The wine list and cocktail choices range from Biltmore varietals, to a broad inventory of high-end liquors. Beer is also available.
Plan on spending at least $80 per person for food and more depending upon libations.
If you are a season pass holder (recommend) you may bring guests after 5, Reservations needed on season.

While I thought the Inn at Biltmore was decent, I don't think the food was worth the money spent. Entree selection left a little to be desired, but I typically don't mind that if the food is good. Service was excellent, and presentation was top notch as well. Portions were small but the big issue to us was that the food taste was a little bland. Wine selection was solid, but any non-Biltmore wines were expensive, almost as if they were trying to force you to drink their wine (which typically are not very good). Our waiter was very knowledgeable about wine, and that really impressed us. Overall our feeling was that the restaurant was trying to APPEAR to be extraordinary rather than to BE extraordinary, but we did enjoy our visit and feel that with a few small improvements that they can achieve the restaurant quality they are obviously seeking.

Appetizers were excellent as were the desserts. Three out of four entrees were good. One was fairly bad, bronzini was over salted and over cooked. No one came to our table to check on any issues until we were all done. Finally got the attention of someone to summon our waitress who offered the person a new dinner (the rest of us were finished). She then offered a free glass of wine. Cannot recommend this restaurant

Lovely dining room,as you enter ,when we arrived we were gong to be seated in a hall way away from the main dining room,I objected so we waited for a table although the restaurant was not full.
There was a fixed menu for the evening ,We both enjoyed our selections.

Exceptional view. Elegant surroundings. Attentive service. Food quality and food preparation was unsatisfying for an establishment of such a high reputation and price: specifically, sea bass over prepared. Filet quality was disappointing.

This was our second visit to the Dining Room at the Inn on Biltmore Estate. First trip we had the full 5-course option, but this time the 3-course option was plenty. Excellent service and wine list. One of our party could not eat dairy, and his courses were all tailored to that requirement without extensive discussion. I recommend valet parking. It's $8 (plus tip, so $10) and they'll give everyone in the car little bottles of water when you leave. Nice.

Sophisticated cuisine. The dining room decor, relative to the excellent food and service, is not notable. We dined at Christmastime, in the evening. At that hour, the outside is dark, so there is no view. There were minimal holiday decorations in the dining room.

We were well pleased with our dining experience at The Inn Dining Room. The service was impeccable and very accommodating to our need for a later reservation time. The reservations staff and the servers were courteous, very professional and just what we expected. We chose the fixed price menu, and were pleased with the variety as well as the price. The food was very nicely presented and very good. The wine list was quite extensive. The ambiance was wonderful with lovely views along the outer walls and seating in front of the lovely fireplace where we dined. The noise level was very comfortable for conversation. We look forward to staying at the Inn and dining there again.

Our second annual family dinner here, and always a special event to dine at the Inn. Tremendous value for the quality, taste, and presentation of food, and the service is impeccable. No trip to the Biltmore is complete without dinner in the Dining Room at the Inn!

The food and service is superior. The waitstaff is extremely attentive and accommodating. The fixed price menu is a bargain for the quality and quantity of food served. There is a 3 or 5 course option. The 3 course was so much food that I cannot imagine eating the 5 course. When the check was presented a complimentary box of assorted sweet treats accompanied the bill. Nice touch.

Notables: Food was delicious, service was attentive without being overbearing, venue was dressy, setting was formal, I would recommend.
Room for improvement: dinner rolls or sticky and flavorless. Waiter was overly effusive. Restaurant was hard to find in the dark. Owners of the park should consider better signing and lighting.

The Dining Room was our choice for my wife's birthday, and for the most part we were not disappointed. Of course be ready to pay top dollar for the name and location if not necessarily for the quality of service.
Food was excellent, with the she crab soup and black forest cake especially well-done. The latter was served on a plate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate...a nice touch, except it was given to me rather than my wife who was actually having the birthday. A "miss" from the service perspective, especially since our server had wished my wife a happy birthday earlier in the meal! Since this server seemed a bit less than genuine in his interest in service (including no updates on the very slow meal service) it wasn't a particular surprise.

The menu is extremely limited. VERY disappointed that the dining room was not decorated more for Christmas. The entrance (lobby) of the hotel/restaurant was decorated nicely, but certainly nothing "over the top". We drove 6 hours for this whole experience and it was nice, but not what we expected. Don't need to do it again.

Food and service was very good. There was a table of 6 in the middle of the main dining room. I could here them more than the lovely person I was there with. I am afraid they don't really enforce any kind of real decorum or dress code. I literally had to sit and listen to a group of people yell across the table at each other. They should have gone to Cendricks. Perhaps the estate needs to invest in some mall rooms where larger groups can partake or you will have to start to bring in live music and make it louder.

Three of us enjoyed a leisurely cocktail and visit while we considered the menu. I had the salmon--delicious. We each chose the 3 course menu. It worked out well. We were there from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m.--a very relaxing and enjoyable time!!!

We had an early seating after the restaurant had just opened and were taken far away from the fireplace which is where we wanted to be seated for the ambiance . Our hostess did not give us a reason for seating us where she did. The food was delicious, everyone in our party was very pleased. The one thing we would have liked was more rolls without having to ask again. The service was outstanding! Overall, a good experience!

The atmosphere was wonderful. We had a great table with a window view of the mountains as well as the fireplace. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. We splurged on a mini vacation to the Biltmore House for the weekend and enjoyed every minute there.

A fabulous venue for special celebrations. Christmas time at the Biltmore is very special. The food was superb and the service impeccable. The ambiance couldn't have been better with our table fronting a warm glowing fireplace. Our 45th anniversary dinner at The Dining room was memorable indeed. We would definitely return for another special occasion.
