Not a fan of the new "board" format and hope they go back to the original brunch stations when guidelines find it appropriate. Example: Ceviche board contains 3 bowls of ceviche but no toast/chips to eat it with. Also, Breakfast board does not include toast/english muffin with your eggs and serves a fondue type dish again, without anything to eat it with. Waiter advised only mini bagels available. Would like to see a "build your own" board with an extended list of options to choose from. On a positive note, atmosphere and ambiance are amazing and it was a beautiful day!

The Biltmore Brunch is deservedly legendary. The service is impeccable. We had Edwin again assisting us through our hours long eating extravaganza! Bottomless mimosas that never every run dry, caviar boards, carnivore boards, breakfast favorites, seafood boards. It just goes on and on. It isn’t inexpensive but it’s so incredibly worth it. The surroundings are beautiful and you truly feel special dining here.

VERY confusing menu layout. Slow table service. All kinds of egg options but no omlettes .vailable for brunch? Customers allowed in with greasy sportwear, shower sandals. UGH!

No era el brunch que esperábamos, quizá por tema Covid haya cambiado el concepto pero definitivamente ya no vale la experiencia lo que cuesta.

I miss when this was a buffet. For the price now the boards (i ordered four of them) were insanely lack luster. Wheres the paella? The unlimited crab legs? Two legs for the seafood board. Absurd. Also the server was away for long periods although our side of the patio was empty. Just horrible experience and we had so many wonderful ones previously

Not worth the time or money. There are better places in Miami to enjoy a nice meal on a Sunday morning. Service was poor. Did not have enough staff to tend to all of the tables.
The food is lacking and the prices not commensurate with the overall experience.

Are you kidding? Overpriced, small portions, no substitutions (shrimp not kosher - more fish ceviche instead? Nope!) poor service, slow drink refills...Nice setting and live guitar.

The now defunct buffet used to be great. If they don’t reinstate it, avoid at all -huge- costs!!!

expected more. nothing was fresh. everything was at least made the day before and had this 'fridge taste' to it. Parfait was like butter - salmon like when you eat something you served for guest the day before. bagels was uneatable.

Bid sad because the ambiance was worldclass.

Biltmore brunch post-covid is simply not worth the money. It ends up being about the same price, but you get 1/4 of the amount of food, and you have to pay extra for the main reason you go to Biltmore Brunch - the fresh seafood and quality meats. The service was super slow, and the menu is like a foreign language that you have to decipher for like 20 minutes before deciding what to order. They put board offerings together, with different types of food selections. Your breakfast and salad boards will run you 30$, whereas the seafood and meat boards will run you 65$ a board. It is a minimum of 1 board per person, and you really need about 3 boards to fill up. The quality of the food was really disappointing. I almost asked for management to complain, but I didn't want to ruin a nice afternoon with my family. None of us felt well after the meal, and but for the gorgeous ambiance of the Biltmore Hotel's courtyard, it was a pretty awful culinary experience. Save your money and go elsewhere.

My boyfriend wanted to do brunch at the Biltmore after reading about it. The menu looked great, but I was worried that we'd be paying more for the ambiance than the food - boy was I wrong. The food, service and atmosphere were top notch. I definitely recommend getting the $90 brunch which includes two breakfast boards unlimited mimosa/belinis and a dessert board. Our server, Eduardo, was fantastic. So personable, always bringing us refills and never rushing us once. The other servers who helped out were great too. We sat in their gorgeous courtyard near the fountain and they even had a guitar player adding to the overall ambiance. I wouldn't go for brunch every weekend, but I would absolutely go again next time I'm back in town.

I had responded to your advertisement that you “Famous Brunch” was back open again. This was in no way the brunch you had before, selections were limited. Restricted to the food Groupings you had set up. I was disappointed from the minute I walked through the door. I drove 2 hrs round trip for a brunch I didn’t get. Over priced for what we got. Almost walked out before ordering but was hungry, so we stayed. Will not drive 2 hrs for that again.

Not a good experience. We went there for my wife's birthday, and except from the place that is really beautiful, the food didn't worth the price and the service was awfull...
Not a smile even a hello by the hostess, plates in the wrong order, long long wait before be served, asks several time to get coffee....

I won't recommend that place at all for the brunch.

I stayed at the Biltmore for my first time and absolutely love the property. I'm in the hospitality business so understand, respect and have compassion for the hit the service industry has taken over the past year. I'm sure staffing has been cut back a bit and certainly with a large property, occupancy has also been slowed down.

I enjoyed 3 meals prior to the famous Sunday brunch and had great service the first three times with Eduardo and Hilda taking amazing care of it, both seasoned veterans with 15+ years working at Fontana. The setting is one of my favorites in the United States by far. The courtyard is magical.

I wasn't thrilled with the service for Sunday brunch, however. My drink arrived 5-7 minutes after my meal. In the service industry, we all know the importance of getting a drink out immediately to buy time. This wasn't the case. I heard from the servers how they do 500 covers for a normal non-Covid brunch so I couldn't see how that could be handled without the wheels falling off or level of service faltering, which I feel I experienced. I ordered the $65 seasfood platter, which was fairly tasty and fresh. I didn't receive things like an extra bowl to put all the shells in so for me being dressed up and wanting a nice meal, it was a sloppy want to enjoy my meal having all the shells stay on the board. No one checked in on my during the meal otherwise I would have asked for a bowl earlier. I did suggest to Hilda next time, or for anyone else who orders this dish, a small seafood fork and bowl for shells would be wise and certainly parts of the service for a high end establishment. I will continue to go back and enjoy the property because it's a gem and one of the most beautifil and classic properties I've experienced in the US. Hopefully when Covid is gone the level of service goes back to what one would expect from such a fine establishment.

Brunch was beyond overpriced for the food quality that was served. I understand that due to Covid and social distancing guidelines, the "normal" buffet style brunch the Biltmore previously served was no longer available. Yet, the flavor and style of food suffered. My expectations of "The Biltmore Brunch" quickly diminished when the typical choice in egg serving went down to the standard Denny's choice. The exquisite Eggs Benedict that I remember fondly of the Biltmore left me asking, "why am I here?" The ambience was pleasant, but as a Florida Native I could have had the same atmosphere in Wynwood and not be disappointing in the food quality.

Well, this isn’t the famous brunch that it was pre pandemic. The food is mediocre, the service was shy (bottomless mimosas that weren’t attended to and the champagne/orange juice ratio was not considerate of the price), and you’re paying top dollar for an all you can eat buffet that obviously you’re not getting. What you ARE paying for is the lovely seating and location. Parrots flying all around. The ambiance is truly magical. So go once and enjoy (because you won’t be back).

The Biltmore, albeit absolutely beautiful, has unfortunately caved in light of it's coronavirus changes.

The once renowned Biltmore buffet has been replaced by a basic a la carte menu. Service was OK, taking very long to take our order and return our food.

I won't be going back until this returns to its old spread.

Considering my wife and I drove 55 miles one way for this brunch and that I paid $250 for 2 people it was pathetic. The BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT was the food. It’s simply horrible, even Flannigans or any other sea food grill serves better food and drinks at 1/4th the price.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON THIS SUNDAY BRUNCH.

I’ve done the Biltmore brunch before and it’s amazing! Unfortunately with Covid, they cannot do the buffet style brunch. You can choose from two “boards” and it’s $90pp. Although it’s still filling, it’s more enjoyable when you get to fill your own plate with anything and everything you want. You definitely don’t get the same experience or your money’s worth like you do when it was the buffet style. Either way, it was still a good experience and the atmosphere outside is just beautiful.

The meatballs were terrible, super bland. The ceviche had the fishy aftertaste and needed to marinade longer. The sausage was terrible too, rubbery. The deserts were ok, nothing to rave about aside from the assortment. The short rib bite was great, the pork bucco bite was good too. The waffles and house potatoes were good. Overall $250 for a two person brunch for two good bites, coffee and mimosas was not worth my time. Won’t be going again or recommending it and it’s a shame bc it’s a beautiful place and the ambiance is lovely. Service was good but slow.

We had a wonderful time having Brunch here at The Biltmore. What an historic site for sure. We spent almost two hours there as it was so interesting to people watch and truly take our time enjoying ourselves. Because it wasn't the true traditional "self-serve" brunch, we enjoyed how the Brunch menu items were presented. Hilda, our server, was on top of her game and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her.

So nice to be back! The new Covid-conscious brunch offering is a bit unique. Rather than displaying all the food out in the open, now you can select “boards” a la carte. Get a few and share them with the table. We ordered the Continental Breakfast Board and the Specialty Board with Polenta and Pork Osso Bucco. All delicious and the two of us left stuffed. Fresh squeezed orange juice, tea, and a guava mojito later, the bill came in at just over $100. Not bad at all for the experience.

The menu is not executed well. The ceviche wasn’t fresh at all and lacked flavor. The garden board was absolutely not worth it. The drinks were great, as was the short rib dish. I understand changes are necessary but it was just overall disappointing, especially having had brunch there in the past. Same price for less food
