It was a great experience overall. The food wasn’t decent, and the service was excellent. We had a very good waiter! The noise level was very high though, so that was the only downfall.

We always eat at Cedric's when at the Biltmore. I understand they have a new chef and was disappointed with the buffalo calamari. This is our favorite and they ha e changed the portion size and it is not cooked the same way. Besides that, our meal was very good and the service was wonderful as always.

Had open table reservation and after we decided we did not want to sit outside in sun, we were then moved to a high top bar table and the restaurant was almost empty. We asked to be moved again to a normal table. It was almost like we were being punished.

We had a delicious late supper at Cedric's Tavern. The food was wonderful, and the service timely and friendly. I highly recommend the calamari appetizer. Our entrees were delicious too, I can't remember the exact name but it was a thinly sliced steak served with mac and cheese. We will definitely be back!

 (San Francisco)·Dined on December 9, 2017

Late dinner so we decided to focus on multiple appetizers. Deviled eggs - good; Deep Fried Pimento Cheese - excellent; Meatballs - OK; and Welsh Rarebit - disappointing - no flavor of cheese. Desert sealed the deal, a generous serving of carrot cake, wonderful.

Yes, we would recommend.

We arrived ahead of our reservation but we found the food and service at the end of the service day to be excellent, well prepared, well presented and the server was a little behind but the food was hot when served. Overall, a very good experience.

We spent the evening dining with my son and his girlfriend. She had never visited the Biltmore Estate and was very happy to have this opportunity. The minute we entered we were greeted by great live music - male singer with guitar - excellent song list and performer. My husband and I often take family and friends to Cedric's we really enjoy the atmosphere, service, and menu. We will be sure to return!

Initially seated in back room. Very loud and no ambiance while seating available in front section. Based on a comment made a manager came to table and offered move.
Move really saved the night and service and food worked out well after a biltmore house visit.

Service was impeccable. The food was tasty and plentiful. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the historical Biltmore Estate with a bit of whimsy throw in since the restaurant is an homage to Vanderbilt’s St. Bernard.

Cedric's was great! Instead of bread our waitress brought us house made pickles which were to die for. I felt so strongly about them I bought a jar before we left. Great local beer and wine selections. I had the Noble Cider which was delicious. I also had the best grilled cheese of my life there. The bean and beef soup left something to be desired, but overall a fantastic end to our day on the Biltmore Estate.

We make a point of visiting Cedric's every time we are staying on property. We especially enjoy sitting at the bar and talking with all the bartenders...especially, Katrina, Mike and Chris. The food is very skillfully prepared and served at the appropriate temperature. Quinn waited on us when the bar was full and we sat at a table. His knowledge of the menu was extensive and he gave us detailed information about the food options and how the food was prepared. It wouldn't be a wonderful trip to Biltmore without visiting Cedric's!

Creative menu for lunches. We drive into Asheville from far Western NC to enjoy dinner for lunch. Asheville is loaded with great places to eat and Cedric’s has made our rotation. Top service and atmosphere. The Biltmore does it right with their staff.
