Excellent meal, we had the Smoked sampler and the Pan fried Trout. Both were excellent and the quantity of both dishes was perfect. We also shared a bottle of wine and I unfortunately spilled my glass and it shattered. But the positive side was that they gave us two entire glasses to replace the small amount I spilled!

We ordered the BBQ Brisket and it was so sweet and the brisket was over done and dry. We couldn’t eat it, took it home to our dogs. Paid over $25 each for our dogs to have our meals.
We have eating here before and the food was wonderful, but this time it was a big disappointment. We only had 1 drink each because the waiter was too busy to really pay attention to us. The only good thing about the dinner was dessert.

What a wonderful Mother's Day meal. We were seating immediately. The server was outstanding. She gave us just enough attention so that we could enjoy our meal, but we still felt pampered. The meal was the best we have had at the Stables. Our meal is always very good, but the brisket with blueberry bar-b-que sauces was outstanding. We of course enjoyed are glass of The Hunt. The Stables is one of our favorite restaurants in Asheville. We can't wait to go back.

I had the chicken leg quarter with bbq beans and carrots. It also can with Alabama white sauce for the chicken and a roll. It was very good. My daughter had the Buffalo chicken sandwich and her meal was mediocre. She didn’t enjoy it. The stables are really nice and it does get very noisy in there. I would recommend getting a meal rather than a sandwich here.

This review is not so much about the Stable Cafe as it is about the Deerpark. PLEASE reopen the Deerpark. I never go to the Stable Cafe. I feel it is full of tourists. I am a pass holder and do not want to be rushed.
I had a reservation and I knew I was a little late so I called ahead and arrived at 12:05pm for a 12pm. My son and I were parked at a table in the middle of the floor and the servers had to turn sideways to get by us. As soon as the appetizer came, our entree soon arrived. It was rushed and not pleasant.
The servers were EXCELLENT and the food was fine. I would recommend the Stable Cafe for a regular meal, not a yesterday.
I will not do this again. PLEASE REOPEN THE DEERPARK!

Our server was great! We had a vegetarian, diabetic and a teen with gluten sensitivity in our party. The menu accommodated is all! Our server took our order and remembered all of the specific dietary restrictions when the food came. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was truly unique.

Reservation was honored without delay. We had a nice lunch and the wait staff was very friendly and took care of my wife's allergy concerns. There are also restaurants at the winery to choose from. The adjacent gift shops are open with capacity restraints.

As a Biltmore Season passholder, I've eaten at the stable cafe numerous times. Pre-pandemic, I would have given it 5 stars across the board. However, the last two times I've been there, it has been sub-par. I will give the waitress 5 stars. She was great. However, the food was meh. I'm not sure why they call their chips "housemade" because they definitely came from a Lay's bag. They were "fine", but don't advertise as a housemade when they clearly aren't. The rotisserie chicken was really good, however, I miss the mashed potatoes and broccolini that I used to be able to get with it. They don't have those options anymore. My husband's burger and fries were good, he said. However, the whole meal wasn't worth the price we paid. Until they go back to their previous stellar menu, we won't be back.

Would return, the food was good, but we requested the upper level on our reservation and they would not seat us up there. Said it was a private party . Went up to check it out after we ate and the place was empty.

Just wasn’t what I expected. Food was subpar and expensive. It was loud. Waitress was nice and attentive just wasn’t worth it in my opinion.
