The Dining Room - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews

The entire staff was too chatty and obsequious, even the bread server was full of questions and comments, and the main waiter for our table just ran off at the mouth whenever he spoke. Maybe some people like the attention but it was just too much interaction, from the hostess to the coat check, to the server, to the waiter and on down the line. Economy of speech might be practiced a bit more here. The food was not that good. I couldn't discern any crab in the she-crab soup, the lobster with sun chokes and persimmon just did not work (and it carried a $10.00 surcharge), and the "Autumn Apple" dessert was weird with the apples in what seemed like a wonton wrapper. I was very disappointed, as this was a special dinner for me and my husband prior to touring Biltmore House for a Candlelight Tour, and it just wasn't worth the money, nor anticipation.

We have yearly pass and love getting in the holiday spirit at the Biltmore House. We weren't disappointed. The Christmas trees and large fireplace in the dining room were lovely. The waiter(Luke) calling me by my last name, which isn't easy was a nice touch. Everything was exceptional. The she crab soup was wonderful.
The filet didn't even need a knife. Desserts were a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.

The dining room is elegant and sophisticated. The service is personal and very attentative. The one drawback is the that there is only a set menu but no al' a carte. The set menu has several good choices but does not allow for personal configuration of the meal. We have dined at the Inn dining room each Christmas season for many years and until this year have been able to chose each course of our meal. The new format does not have the selection offered in prior years and consists of the basic beef, pork, chicken and fish dishes which do not have the excitement and flair of past menus. We will continue to dine here each year but would like to see the return of the wide variety, al' a carte menu.

We celebrated a wedding anniversary at the Biltmore. The staff was incredibly accommodating, concerned that our choices met the dietary restrictions (food allergy) that we outlined prior to our visit. We chose three course meals, and the amount of food was more than adequate. I wish I had made a different choice for my entree; it was a bit heavy, but my husband was happy with his filet. I should have asked more questions about my choice, which was an entree featuring sea bass.
The staff made our experience very special. The chef wrote a Happy Anniversary message on my dessert plate in chocolate!
I would highly recommend the dining room at the Inn at the Biltmore Estate.

Everyone rolled out the red carpet for every step of our meal! It made all the difference! We eat out regularly and have never had service quite like this! Unbelievable! If you want to feel like a king and queen, dine here! We will book every meal here next time we are in Asheville! Spectacular!

This dinner was a special occasion and did not disappoint. The entire experience was perfection from the ambiance and service to the amuse bouche to the meal and superbly finished off with dessert. Highly recommend for a special treat. It's expensive but you get what you pay for!

As Passholders , this was not our first dining experience here. This visit was quite disappointing! We enjoyed wonderful cocktails upstairs by he fireplace before our dinner reservation. Our waitstaff at the table was excellent, no complaints there! The first course and wine was very nice, but after that, things went downhill! We waited 45 minutes for our entree to arrive and apparently others did also. I looked around the room and only one or two tables had any food! When the entree finally arrived, my fish was so highly salted that it was practically inedible. They offered to replace it, but by that time I was so frustrated, hungry etc that I just wanted to eat whatever else was served as the side dishes! My husbands's dinner was ok, although not really stellar.
This venue should do better than this. The holidays attract huge volumes of customers; I understand that, but they should plan better and provide a "fine dining" experience, which includes, above all, the FOOD,

Loved Loved dinner at the Inn! Such a special memory!
From the greeting til we left, the hospitality was amazing!
The steak was great and the salad was unique but I loved it!
We felt the service was very good- The attention to every detail was great!

Our starters were great. The gluten free breads were 5 stars. However the surf and turf was a disappointment. The surf was good, but the steak was charred (obviously cooked on a dirty grill) and dry. Neither one of us were able to finish it. We were discounted $28 off our bill which was kind, but not enough considering the cost of the meal.

Food was very good and artistically presented. Service impeccable. Dessert highlight of the meal and the gift box of after dinner candies exceptional.
Only complaint is that like everything else associated with the Biltmore property, a good bit overpriced.

The Dining Room at the Biltmore Inn was wonderful. Our server, Hank, treated us like we were royalty. The food was excellent and the servings were of nice size to leave you able to enjoy all courses. We love the Biltmore. It is another world when you are there!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and we were treated like royalty. The sommelier was wonderful answering all our questions and our pairings were perfect for our tastes. The food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The ambiance was warm and relaxing.
We will definiatly dine here again.

The 3 course dinner was very good. The presentation on each entree was beautiful. We sat next to the fireplace with the lit Christmas tree. It was very relaxing. The sesame crusted tuna, lobster & perssimons and pumpkin spice cheesecake was delicious. All the servers were extremely cordial. The staff looked happy and willing to make our experience wonderful.

Dining out is difficult when you have a hypersensitivity to soy. The Dining Room has a scratch kitchen and the executive chef even came out and talked with us to assure me that my meal would be soy free. The meal was delicious and the service wonderful. Would highly recommend and hope to go there again.

Not quite what we expected. We had 3 couples and since the menu was either 3 or 5 courses, if one ordered 2 starters, the rest of the table needed to wait for the first course to be finished before the second was brought out. The only course that came out at the same time was the entree. As a result, it took about 2.5 hours for dinner (about 30 minutes per course) even though we all had the 3 course dinner. In addition, the entrees we had were nothing special. Our server was attentive and pleasant.

The dining experience was exceptional. All the personnel were very attentive, knowledgeable and helpful explaining items on the menu. The atmosphere was superb. The dining room was decorated for the Christmas holidays. Greatly enjoyed our dinner there and had a table by the window so that we could enjoy the beautiful view.
