Diner Reviews
  • "The Biltmore is such an icon, and somewhat romantic, that I booked Smeraldi's for Valentine's dinner. We were seated in the upstairs area, which is more like a diner than the downstairs which has a slightly romantic atmosphere. Was a surprise that it was a set menu. Dinner came with free Champagne which they eventually poured, but was cheap Champagne. The carrot soup was so sweet it should have been served for desert. The steak and lobster were merely pedestrian with some kind of bottled brown sauce on the side. Dessert was just cheap bakery fare. The whole event with parking ran $175 and for that price we could have had a much much better meal almost anywhere else. In a better atmosphere as well. We will never go back."

  • "We went for the seafood buffet – it was very tasty- the fish was very moist not dry as you might expect from a buffet. The servers very polite and they stood close by to keep an eye on you if you needed anything. Very clean! Great picture painted on the wall, relaxing atmosphere. Very reasonable price too!"

  • "We came for the BCS Championship game Jan 2014. Stayed at the Millenium Biltmore. We were getting in from Florida about 4 pm and wanted to get checked in and get some rest. Did not feel like going anywhere so ate in the hotel restaurant. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection(medium rare) and was excellent. The service was great. Not very busy because I guess the reputation some hotel restaurants have as being overpriced and not very good. We found this not to be the case especially with the filet mignon( two times) and we also had some other items that were very good. We found the prices to be very comparable to nice restaurants here in the Pensacola Florida area. The historic detail preserved in this hotel is awesome."

  • "We really enjoyed our evening at Smeraldi's restaurant in downtown Los Angeles. We had a window-side table so we could people watch. The staff were very friendly, attentive and helped make our birthday celebration for two very delightful. The food selection included a nice variety, modestly priced, fresh, delicious served hot with a nice presentation. Despite the drive from San Pedro up into downtown, I felt it was worth every effort. We toured the beautiful Milennium Biltmore common spaces, hall of history and such. Afterwards we strolled over to Pershing Square where they had ice skating set up for the season. I would have missed it all - if not for Smeraldi's. Thank You."
