Great food. Great service. My wife had the pork chop and I had the seafood special as part of the Candlelight dinner (appetizer, entree and dessert). All courses were excellent. It is literally a stable, so not an intimate facility, but, we always enjoy it.

Awesome being seated in one of the Horse Stalls. Atmosphere was excellent. We ate at 3:00 on a Tuesday so not very busy which helped keep the noise level down.
Recommend eating there when visiting the Biltmore, just remember you are there for the atmosphere #1, food #2.

Stable Cafe was delightful. The food was perfectly prepared. We would've liked to have seen a few more options, but were pleased with what was served. The food was wonderful, the culture of the restaurant inviting, and over all a wonderful experience.

The service was great but the food was a disappointment. Three of us dined on meatloaf and bbq sampler plates. The menu has shifted to be more expensive , the quality was fair to good, but the portions have been significantly reduced. The old bbq sampler plate is 2x expensive than in March and 1/2 the portion size of everything. The meatloaf was not as enjoyable…too sweet for some reason the same for the potato’s and on top of that 40% more expensive and again much smaller portion of meatloaf and sides than in March 2021. Will seriously have to look elsewhere for dining on the Estate. Paying 2x for less quality is not appealing to us.

Food and ambiance are good, but very overpriced for why you actually get. A 4oz filet, soup and a desert the size of a silver dollar for the not so bargain price of $67. Other than for the experience of eating at the Biltmore estate, not sure you’re paying for.

The food we ended up receiving was very good but the waitress took our order and had to come back twice stating they didn’t have what we ordered. Also, the waitress was very brash. It was not our favorite time but we will come back.

We have ate at the Deerpark restaurant for many years when visiting Biltmore during the holidays. Deerpark was always 5 stars. Unfortunately Deerpark was still closed this year due to COVID so we decided to try the Stables Cafe. Service was amazing. Food not so great. Cornbread and chicken were dry and overcooked. Filet was burnt on the outside. Rice was crunchy and not fully cooked. Very disappointed given the high cost for these meals. Hopefully Deerpark will be open again soon as it’s a much better experience.

Great meal in a historic setting at the Biltmore Estate Stable Cafe, looking out over the house lit for the holiday. I thought the quality outstanding for the volume of people being served - great service and of course a nice Rhone style wine from the estate.

Great evening. Thought the candle light would have been better than a couple of tea lights. Lower lighting would have set the mood for candlelight dinner. Once again for the second time that day we had the exact table and Josh as our server. He was amazing and very helpful. Really enjoyed the evening. Would have liked to sit in the loft since it was candlelight dinner, but then we would not have had the pleasure of Josh.

Went to the candlelight Christmas dinner. Wonderful food. I had the chicken with collards and wild rice ( my least favorite ) and chocolate peppermint mousse for dessert , it was delicious. We had 7:00 reservations but got there at 6:00 and they seated us immediately. Great service.

Great dining choice if you’re going to visit the Biltmore! Was not aware that their dinner menu changes. The options were very limited and on the higher scale of pricing. Would love to have seen more options on the three course menu. Great atmosphere and great service.
