Fontana at the Biltmore Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Everything was amazing. Service was good but just as previous visits... servers are hard to find at times and management it’s absent, like not even there. Regardless the food and ambience it’s always on point and for that I give this place an overall outstanding rating.
A great experience. Loved the place. Service was amazing, final minutes there I was surprised that the waiter disappeared after having provided such great service. He forgot to bring a cup of coffee I had ordered, nonetheless still a great meal, great service and amazing views of an iconic property.
The courtyard setting is always perfect at Fontana. Sitting on the patio or under an umbrella is delightful. But the food is also extremely good. The special grilled seafood plate on this particualr day was wonderful Each type of fish (black cod, shrimp, scallop, mahi mahi) were all perfectly cooked. DElicious.
The venue is absolutely stunning! I chose this place for my 40th birthday celebration because I really wanted to be someplace special with my closest friends. The food was just "okay" and our server, though nice, was a bit absent minded. I was fine with all of that however because my pictures were amazing... that is until they brought me my birthday cake and it had the WRONG NAME on it! Apparently one of my friends ordered the cake and asked that they add it to my reservation. Whoever took they order added HER name instead of mine. Luckily I bake and decorate cakes so I fixed it myself but I was clearly annoyed. It got better, though. We cut the cake back at our hotel only to discover that it was Vanilla instead of Red Velvet. Nice Job, Guys!
Service was not up to Standars! We waited 15 minutes for our Server, took wrong order for my 3 year old, had to change it.
Manager never stop by to do a Quality check on guest, I had better service in Privately Own Restaurants.
VERY LOUD due to a Wedding in Ballroom, could not enjoy a conversation with Wife!
The Place itself is very nice but then again everything falls apart with Service and Noise.
For a $400 rate per night Hotel the Service Is NOT there.
More like Ocean Drive type of Service.(SoBe)
Its a Shame!
On our most recent visit we went for the courtyard experience but because of threatened rain we were moved to a table under the eaves next to the entryway. Doors were constantly opening with gusts of wind and banging shut. Otherwise this is a grey place most of the time and the venue is truly stunning.
I have eaten at this restaurant several times because we are staying at the Biltmore Hotel. The food is great; unfortunately, the service is very inconsistent during holidays. Christmas Eve service was a disaster - it took over 30 minutes after being seated just to order drinks and another 15 minutes after that to order our food. The restaurant seemed overwhelmed with the Christmas Eve crowd that was dining. The delays continued after ordering and the manager did not seem to care about the disappointing situation. We went back for an early seating Christmas Day brunch and had an amazing experience with great food and fantastic service from a team of wait staff assigned to the table.
This was our second time at the Fontana. OUr first visit was spectacular and I would give everything 5 stars which is why we returned. This time, it wasn't as favorable as the first time, but it was Christmas Eve, so we are hoping the less than great experience we had was just due to the busy time and maybe being short-staffed on Christmas Eve (although you would expect a restaurant such as the Fontana to be appropriately staffed for a big night). Would probably give it one more try, but for a special occasion.
Usually great service. There were a few holiday parties on grounds and suspect restaurant was under staffed. We had a pseudo server who couldn’t get us water in 20 minutes or other drink in 30. Didn’t know specials. After about 1/2 hr experienced server took over. Food was very good.
Don’t go for a intimate and peaceful meal on a Friday or Saturday night if there is a wedding or other event happening. An otherwise wonderful experience was completely ruined by obscenely loud music (bass thumping) from upstairs. Staff just dismissed it as a “regular” complaint. One of the most beautiful courtyard dining settings around, but lost to the noise.
Relaxing. The ambience is one of a kind. Sit "outside" under the stars in the atrium dining room when weather permits as we did when we were there. The staff is very professional and the food was wonderful. Have dinner then just walk a few feet to GableStage for great theatre. It will be a night to remember.
We ate in the court yard which is really nice. The hotel was built in 1925 and the architecture is truly a treat to see. Not many places like this are left. Our food was really good and they always have nice Sancerre wines available. One great thing about eating outside is that noise level is minimal which as a hearing challenged person is very much appreciated. We go to the Gable Stage plays, eat at Fontana and stay overnight at the hotel. Makes for a superb weekend getaway for folks from Ft. Lauderdale.
Thanksgiving dinner at Fontana. The food was incredible: old school, high end Italian with a turkey and pumpkin orientation, in a romantic setting. Service, as usual, didn’t quite match the food quality ... friendly but just a little off given the price point and the food quality (“who had the risotto? Ah, yes”). But the food was superb. Best Thanksgiving meal ever.
A great choice for treating family, without having to clean up afterwards.
