The Dining Room - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
Overall experience was not as what we expected. Service was very poor, we had to ask for our server several times at the host desk (It took about 30 minutes to place a desert order). Dinner plates didn’t came up right: steak was burned on outside and rare on inside ( we ordered it med-well for my child). Server was surprised we sent it back. Other staff was very friendly and helpful as usual.
Wanted something special for our 25th wedding anniversary.
Made reservations at the Biltmore Inn to stay overnight and decided to eat in the dining room.
We chose the 3 course fixed price meal with the wine paring option. The food was extremely fresh and well prepared, the wines that were paired with each course were excellent matches. The atmosphere was fantastic - we were seated at a table where we could see the mountains in the distance as the sun set and after the sun set, we were also able to watch the fireplace - many of the other tables provided one view or the other - which would have been fine also. Wait staff were very friendly and provided excellent service.
Was also impressed with the cleanliness of the dining room. Quite often large stone fireplaces like the one in the dining room have small cob webs in them - they appear overnight and require constant cleaning to keep clean - I had the impression that a white glove test would have been passed.
As is the case with all of the amenities at the Inn, attention to detail was outstanding. Our servers were professional and attentive. Mention was made of my request for gluten-free options, the warm bread being really yummy. My daughter said the salmon was very good; my filet was good. My dessert, a smore delicacy, was good until I tasted the chocolate. My advice would be to leave out the smoke flavor. As they say, if it isn't broken, then don't fix it. Overall we had a terrific dining experience and our thanks to the chef and staff!
One of the best meals my wife and I have ever had. Our server, Danielle, was exceptionally knowledgable and helpful. The amuse bouche offerings were delectable. My wife and I both ordered the Filet and literally ate every bit of everything on the plate. The prix fixe menu caught us a little by surprise (limited choices), but everything we chose was fantastic and the portions were just right. A fine dining experience for certain.
And the view! If you can get a window table, you must.
Our Friday evening experience was marred by jarring music from a live band coming down the grand staircase into the dining room competing with the restaurant's classical music. The service however was attentive and prompt and the presentations were attractive and original. The dishes however didn't measure up to the $85/p.p. tab. ($65 prix fixe for our 3 course meal + $20 entry ticket to enter the Biltmore grounds)
Our romantic get away for our 47th anniversary was a wonderful experience overall and staying at the Inn added so much to our visit. The ambience and facilities gave you the feeling of actually being entertained and seeing what the Vanderbilt's experienced. The staff throughout the Inn and total property were very helpful, cordial and friendly. My dinner experience on Oct. 3 was good with the "pork belly" starter and "lamb chops" as my entree. Your ice cream for dessert is wonderful. My wife had the "filet" both nights and added the "crab meat" on Oct 3rd and was very pleased with her choices as well as desserts. The breakfast both days was great and the food at the Biltmore Garden Cafe and Bakery was also excellent. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would come again. Thanks for asking.
We had a delightful evening with out of town guests. Some of the food was unusual but what I tried was very tasty . Being hard of hearing I appreciated the low noise level, something I have problems with in most restaurants. Prices struck me as a bit high overall, but we thought the 3 course prix fixe meal was good value. The location, being able to look out to the mountains, contributed significantly to the experience.
We had an incredible dining experience at the Inn! We were both a little apprehensive because of the menu however, everything we had was excellent. My husband's filet was the best we have ever had (and we live in a city with many excellent steak restaurants)! Tender and oh so delicious! Must visit if you are seeing the Biltmore!
I have been going to the Dining Room for a number of years. You used to be the #1 restaurant in Asheville. Now what??? You are number 24 or whatever. Have you wondered about this? Do you even check it out? Service was not that great. Food was mediocre. You know what? Call me if you even know who I am. Also, your prices are outrageous.
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.
