    This restaurant makes its money by being on the Viltmore grounds. The staff was friendly. The food was not particularly notable.

    This was a very pleasant place to stop for lunch while touring the Biltmore Estate. We had a nice meal of shepherd's pie and salad in a lovely outdoor setting. There are other places to eat on the estate, some more elaborate and some less formal. But this was just right. We found it convenient to tour the gardens first, stop for lunch, and then tour the house itself. We may have avoided some of the crowds this way.

    Enjoyed a table on the patio - inside restaurant very noisy, but pleasant on patio. Rain caused Friday evening music to stop early, but we enjoyed a great meal on the dry patio. Nice evening. Although Cedric's will not reserve patio tables, by checking in earlier than our reservation time, we were able to be seated on the patio at our desired time!

    Had dinner with some friends after enjoying the music on the green on a Friday night. The food was very good, but what really made the experience was our server Tony. He was funny, engaging and a real asset to this restaurant! We would recommend it (and ask for Tony)

    We had a great experience at Cedric's Tavern. The fondue appetizer was fantastic! The steak was ok but had too many peppercorns. The waiter was great, even went back to the kitchen to make the blue cheese stuffed olives. This is a reasonably priced Biltmore restaurant and worth a try.

    Our expectations were high since the restaurant is at Biltmore and Cedric's exceeded them! 5 of us celebrated my wife's birthday and we all had different menu items. Each was perfectly prepared with wonderful presentation. Our waiter Tony made the experience even better with terrific suggestions from both the menu and the bar. Eric's is a Pub so the noise level was a bit loud but enhanced the Pub atmosphere and experience. We'll definitely eat there again when we return to Biltmore. And of course, like everywhere on the property, each and every person is cheerful, helpful, and professional.

    Average, average, average. Front desk staff was not organized and didn't handle seating well. After switching seats, we were told we'd have a "complimentary round of appetizers". Got charged for them. Didn't press the issue as we just wanted to be done with it. Food served in wrong order. Manager took over and things improved. I'd have to describe the food as average. I wouldn't plan to return.

    Decided to dine at Cedric's at the last minute and was able to get a reservation evening with all of the events going on at the Estate. There was music playing in Antler Village and the one man show inside. Service was quick, staff friendly, and the food was delicious. I always enjoy the unusual pairings of meats and vegetables as well as the presentation.

    Overall Cedric's is one of our favorite Asheville restaurants, and we will go back, but the service for this last visit was such that it left us embarrassed as we happened to have taken a guest. Service was slow to the point that we didn't get refill offers for our drinks until we had finished the meal, and the bill was presented before we were asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. This is most unusual for Cedric's and I just hope that the day of our visit was the waiter's first day.

    Our waiter never returned to our table to refill our water, seemed annoyed when we were not sure what beer to order right away, and once he gave us the bill, he never returned to collect my card for payment. I had to flag down other employees to tend to my needs. With the price of the food, which was nothing special, especially the hamburger, one would expect better service. I had a much better experience at the Bistro three months ago.

    My wife and I went to Cedrics' while visiting the Biltmore House. The service set this restaurant apart from most. The server was quite nice and knowledgeable and the host seated us quickly. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. We split the calamari and I had the Cornish pastie. Both items were excellent. I recommend this restaurant for a quick bite while visiting the Biltmore!

    We have eaten at Cedric's numerous times and have been very satisfied until this time. The room we were seated in was very humid upon arrival. This was mentioned and there was no offer to move us to another table even though there were other tables available. The food was only average. My trout was dry and the shepherds pie very runny. Guess it was a bad nite for the chef. We have had good meals there before but will think twice about going again. Last time we ate at the Bistro it was wonderful. It will be our choice when dining in the future at the estate.

    The restaurant must have had a bad day. We waited approximately 45 minutes for our food to arrive. The food was average and overpriced. The manager explained the delay because my wife had ordered her Bison burger "well done" and that took more time. That explanation was not plausible. He should have just apologized for the delay and moved on.

    I have taken my parents out to eat here on the Biltmore Estate two other times this year alone. We are not wealthy, so these dinners are special to us. Previously, we received excellent, upbeat, positive service from every employee we met, the food was beyond compare, and the atmosphere was quiet, upscale, calm, & very pleasant. July 10th was completely different. The hosting staff exhibited the usual great service, but the server seemed a bit...well, callous. Perhaps he was expecting us to order alcohol & three dinners at $30-$40 each, & when we did not, he lost interest in us completely. The food was decent, but the portion size was halved & the price had been increased by $3. The atmosphere was chaotic & loud, & live act was terrible.

    Nice Irish Pub, but lacked basic comforts. Foe example, They serve pretzel rolls that are extremely salty and regular butter and tarter sauce were unavailable. So if you like tartar sauce with your fish & chips - forget about it. Despite that, there is something for everyone at a reasonable price point. The service was good and the wait staff very pleasant. Live music was nice as well. So give it a try. My points are minor so if you like Irish Pubs you will enjoy Cedric's.
