    A dinner for five to celebrate a special birthday for a member of our party (in the Open Table reservation I indicated that this was the 65th birthday dinner for a member of our party). We were seated at a table just off the main dining room and overlooking the dining room. We were able to enjoy this architectural gem (influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright), had delicious food, and impeccable and friendly service. There was no snobbiness and each member of the staff that served us thanked us for choosing Wright's for our special occasion.

    Wanting to do something special for our close friend and out of town guest, choosing Wright's at the Biltmore certainly fit the bill. The food selections at the brunch were pleasantly varied, plentiful and delicious. Our server was very courteous and observant. We enjoyed our window seat table and having the small garden view was an added bonus. The entire staff was very amenable and accommodating. Overall, our experience at Wright's exceeded our expectations making for a very memorable meal and enhancing our guest's stay.

    We attended the New Year dinner. The first three courses were rather bland although adequate and unfortunately the fish course was late coming out. The fish was just barely overcooked. It's unlikely most diners noticed but a foodie would have been disappointed. The service was top quality and we had a comfortable evening.

The food presentation is as appetizing to look at as it is to eat! I treat myself and my family to brunch at the Biltmore for special occasions. It is a real delight.

    A little disappointing compared to a year ago -- little in the way of fresh fruit, and the staff was a bit slow in clearing away plates between trips to the buffet. However, the waiter himself was great, and the selections (of which there were plenty) ranged from fine to outstanding. The desserts were great too, with a special call out for the gingerbread panna cotta.

    The waiter made the difference. James made us feel comfortable and gave us some history of the resort. The assistants that brought small dishes and cleared the table were efficient. Without knowing about "OpenTable" to start my reservation, I tried calling the restaurant directly. I was put on hold with constant commercials for over 15 minutes only to find that they did not man the phones until about 4pm. In frustration I went to the net and found that I could make reservations. The followup of my reservation was great. The phone deal is my only complaint. The prices are a little expensive but for a special evening I would go again.

    I haven't been at the Wright's for some time now. The dining room has been remodeled and is much more cozier and not as formal as it was prior. And, the food and service was fantastic. The holiday decorations (the train model in the lobby, decorated tree and outdoor lighting) makes the place enchanting as well.

    The Biltmore is a special place for us spending numerous wedding anniversaries here. We normally would leave the premises and try another restaurant in the area but for the last two years we've chosen Wright's. It's a first class experience. They welcomed us with a "happy anniversary" and the rest of the evening was fabulous. Even though it is a resort style restaurant which can often mean very expensive and overrated, the Wright does a wonderful job making it a destination experience. We will be back again and again.

    Fine dinning goes beyond ambience and food presentation both of which Wright's excells in. As a pricy upscale venue a patron should not have to remind the servers of required utensils and request addtinal servings of bread and butter. Found some dishes to be lackiing in size. An encellent tasting lobster/shrimp bisque was more a tasting exercise then a full bowl. The ceaser salad wih kahl was far from the traditional fare with the portion again undersized and overall tastless with a massive singular anchove dominating the plate - when was the last time this amazing dish was made tableside with all the right ingrediants properly chopped up and mixed? Overall a bit disappointing.

    The setting and service are very good, but the food is, for what is charged, mediocre. Filet was dry and overcooked and the pork bellies were also somewhat overdone. The service is attentive, but not as polished as one would expect, again given the prices. For example plates that were finished were left overlong on the table, but the servers were cordial without being stuffy and were very accommodating.

    Visiting Phoenix, my wife wanted to go someplace special. We tried Wright's at the AZ Biltmore. Dinner started with a complementary and cold cucumber and chili soup. Small and tasty. Followed by Lobster Bisque, elegantly served at the table. The soup had a good amount of meat, but we were disappointed by the use of tomato in the broth that nearly overwhelmed the lobster flavor. I then had Filet Wellington (Outstanding) and my wife ordered the Fall Risotto (excellent). For dessert we had "Spumoni," pistachio ice cream, chocolate cake, brandied cherries, gold flake with a ring of dark chocolate, outstanding. We also had "Pumpkin Pie" a layered dish of pumpkin mousse, various creams and ganache. Both Outstanding. Very good wine pairings too
