We have been to sunday brunch many times. Well, this should not be announced with "sunday brunch", since it is only having lunch in one part of the restaurant, the staff were 2 people. The menu the same for more than a year. Food always good. It was a disappointment.
I would always recommend it and I do, but during this pandemic, no.

The service and food were very good, and we will most definitely be back. The only issue we had were the fans that were running and were quite loud. I'm sure that there was a reason for them running. The only other issue was OpenTable as they emailed me to cancel our reservation, and we still don't know why. We spoke with Ernesto with The Biltmore and he took care of it for us right away.

We loved our experience at Fontana. Court yard seating was wonderful and very comfortable. The service was on spot and waiter Orlyn was excellent and took very good care of us for our daughters birthday. The food quality was excellent and every dish was prepared perfectly . We will returning soon.

La Fontana courtyard is very charming and that is one of the reasons we picket La Fontana to celebrate our anniversary since indoors dining is not a choice now due to the pandemia. In spite of the very hot weather, it was not hot at all, it was bearable for me. They had fans and that helped. We had risotto with seafood and it was good, it had plenty of seafood. It took more that 40 mins. to be served but some types of rice need more tine than others and that may be the reason for the delay.

Horrendous experience. there's really no way to describe just how bad a job they did.The waiter didn't even come to the table to take our order for an hour and it took another hour for our appetizers. Finally, after a very long wait, we canceled our main course order because it was so late we weren't even hungry anymore and wanted to go for a walk. They really couldn't have dropped the ball more. it was more than just an off night. Horrendous service, defensive when we kindly asked them to help us have a better experience and management was nowhere to be found. Never going back

Very nice for our anniversary lunch. We had to choose a restaurant with outdoor dining because indoor dining has been closed again due to the pandemic.
We were outdoors, but fortunately under an overhang because it was pouring rain when we arrived. The occupied tables were very socially distant.
The express lunch was very good. Our dessert even included a candle!
Our order was taken very quickly, but it seemed like a long wait to get our food.
We would definitely do this again for special occasions as long as our dining choices are still limited.

It was our first time there. It was good but being the hotel so classy we expected it to be way better. They have a good wine selection and the architecture and decoration specially in the courtyard is gorgeous, we seated inside because outside temperature was around 85. The service is good, we asked for a plate that wasn’t on the menu and they had the courtesy to make it for us, however the restaurant’s ambiance and decoration in the inside is kinda wore off and doesn’t reflect the environment of the rest of the hotel or even the courtyard. Food was fine but as stated before could have been much better.

I love this restaurant and we've eaten here almost every time we have stayed at the hotel. It's such a lovely place and it really transports you to a little slice of Italy. Always thought this would be a great place to propose to someone. I was staying at the hotel with my daughter who had just graduated from college (which was a total bust this year...thanks Covid) and I had really hyped up this restaurant to her all day. The staff couldn't have been nicer, but when our meals arrived at the table, hers was wrong. She ordered the seafood pasta but regular spaghetti with tomato sauce arrived. At this point I think it's rude to eat in front of someone (even if she is my daughter) so I waited till her second plate to arrive. The food was good but my entree had cooled while waiting for hers. I really thought they would have taken just a bit off the check for the inconvenience or at least comp-ed our (1) one dessert that we took togo. I totally understand that the hotel and restaurant business has changed due to the virus which is why I didn't make a big issue of it and probably wouldn't have even written a review, but it was a just another misstep in our whole stay at the hotel. I will of course go again as we live locally and stay at the hotel 4 or 5 times a year and bring company when we have visitors in town.
