We visited the Biltmore for my husband’s birthday and could only get a reservation here for lunch. It was so good! The deviled eggs were not something I would normally think of as good but they were delicious. The burger was too!

I always enjoy eating there when everyone I visit the Biltmore. This time I splurged and preferred you pumpkin creme brûlée. I was a little disappointed at how dry the pumpkin consistency was- not really pudding like.

The food at Stable was amazing. The shrimp and grits is quite possibly the best I have ever had. The pumpkin bisque appetizer was so delicious as well. This was just a fantastic experience all the way around before a quick walk to Candlelight Christmas at the house!

Our server Carlos was awesome. Friendly and never kept us waiting. The place is neat. The food was okay. My filet was cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth. The sides weren't anything special. I really did not enjoy the greens at all. We also didn't love the deviled eggs. Very salty. It was our first time here though and I think we would still eat here again. The service was great.

I always eat at Stable Cafe when I am at Biltmore. My favorite place. Their desserts are great, and no one cooks collards like you get at Stable Cafe. They are delicious. The servers are all fantastic.

It’s great they offer gluten free buns, but it was served cold. Even when sent back, the 2nd bun which had grill marks was still cold on top. Pumpkin bisque was amazing!

Scott was excellent taking our order and fulfilling our requests. The pear salad was fabulous. Springer chicken very flavorful. If there was a negative, it was the choice of desserts; and the two we chose, dark chocolate mousse and remoulade, were very ordinary tasting.

Food taste and apperance was that of a low grade hotel at prices of $47+... Ridiculous!

Food was ok, main dish was tasteful and nicely set however sides were not as good. Also table was at the back of the place, secluded and unbalanced. It moved while cutting your meal. Our server was very friendly and helpful.

We were surprised that the dinner menu was a candlelight dinner experience - lunch is simpler fare and that was what we expected as we arrived with our 3yo granddaughter. The staff was very accommodating and the food (three course meal priced between $40-70) was excellent. The "children's menu" was Real Food - also delicious. As our granddaughter is yet at the "only chicken tenders" stage, she ate the rolls and we will eat her meal a different day - it's big enough to share! lol

It is a beautiful setting for a restaurant. The lighting was relaxing, the decor was unique, clean and gorgeous. The service was what would expect of the definition for southern hospitality. From the hostess greeting us and seating us at our appointed time to Paul making sure we had everything we needed without overdoing it.

As for the food, it was good but it wasn't perfect or what would expect from being on the property of a grand estate as the Biltmore. Our dishes reminded me more of what one would get at large amusements parks like Disney. Dishes are based on what is easily prepared in advance in large batches and easily prepped up to serve. So if your expecting signature dishes delicately and proffessionally prepared for each individuals, this is not the place for a special night.

Despite minor issues with our plates (rice was way to al dente, braised beef could use some gravy and smoked chicken was a little dry) we don't regret coming and believe everyone should experience eating here once when visiting the Biltmore.

This is our favorite restaurant on the Biltmore estate. The food is superb-fresh, perfectly prepared, and delicious. The steak was almost fork-tender, and the desserts are outstanding. My favorite, however, is the Champagne Shrimp Salad which I had two evenings in a row!

Absolutely terrible. Our server was extremely weird and awkward. We were texted 30 minutes early. The hostess was rude. The food was terrible. Burger burnt, salmon was disgusting. We will not be dining here ever again
