Please be aware that you must have a valid paid estate admission ticket, be staying at Inn on Biltmore Estate or Village Hotel, or be a Biltmore Annual Passholder to dine on property.

The Bistro features contemporary American fare. Fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients are the focus on the dinner menu, which features premium steaks, impeccable mountain trout and seafood, poultry and lamb.

Quite frankly, this was our first dining out at a restaurant since the covid-19 pandemic.
Food was awesome as always, and our server Bobby, was awesome as usual.
We did feel quite safe as clearly the restaurant was abiding by North Carolina law with covid-19 safety practices certainly in place, and being carried out.
It certainly was a welcomed time.

Despite all the COVID requirements making the restaurant feel half full, the experience was great. The food was incredible with quality fresh ingredients cooked perfectly. Our server was very friendly and informative. Definitely recommend the duck which was wonderful.

Dined in while staying at the Village with my eight-year-old daughter. Great food and atmosphere! A little on the pricey side, but well worth it. We left with full bellies and a great mother / daughter memory.

This place was so busy but service was not lacking. This place is great. The food was phenomenal!!! They made sure to let the one gluten-free person in our group know that they did have gluten-free options. The wine and wine service was fantastic. This place was the best choice for us to enjoy the Biltmore. Thank you!!!

We enjoyed excellent service and delicious meals. When the plates came out without the vegetables being switched out (as the waiter said they could do), they took the plates back and replaced the meals. As if that wasn't enough, the chef told us to select a dessert on him due to the mixup. The filet mignon with bordelaise sauce was tender and cooked to perfection. The trout delighted my mother. It was a special night, enhanced by our dining experience.

We have eaten at the Bistro many times, but this time we were disappointed in the food. The calamari was in a pool of oil, the steak was tough, and the dressing on the Caesar salad was very bland. Hopefully things were amiss due to the recent re-opening and the place will get back to it’s A game.

Very nice menu and wait staff. Mixed drink wasn't thoroughly incorporated but, man, that's about all I can find at fault. Wine list is limited to Biltmore wines so you can consider that on its own terms as to how that is either part of the estate experience or a limited list. Food is very well done. Bobby was a great waiter. Very keen on health protocols as well.

Nice experience!

It was a charming restaurant at Biltmore. The food was really good but compared to a couple other places I ate in Asheville it wasn’t quite as good. They were very efficient and the service was outstanding. If you are wanting to dine at the Biltmore I would definitely recommend it!

Ordered the ribeye steak well done. Came out burnt. Manager was very nice and willing to prepare another steak. I opted to eat the burnt steak because I hate wasting food. Got comped for the steak which was as it should have been, it was a $50 steak. The waitress was nice, but not knowledgeable. This was our last meal of our Asheville weekend. Last and least. Do not recommend.

Dinner w my mom. The chicken was dry but the succotash was excellent and the glaze was great. The peaches in the salad had no flavor and barely any goat cheese.
Overall dissatisfied with how little of the menu is from biltmore or even neighboring locales.

My mom and I had a lovely time. We both said that it was the best meal we have had all year. I got out of my comfort zone and ordered the cucumber peach salad. It was delicious. The filet was so tender and cooked perfectly. Service was outstanding. We wanted a nice splurge meal to end our trip, and it was everything we had hoped it would be.

We had a late reservation, and staff was understandably tired, but polite. We enjoyed the calamari and French onion soup; however, there was nothing remarkable about them. Husband had Steak Frites, which were subpar in execution. The steak was not seasoned very well, and it was adorned with a frozen pat of butter which did not melt at any point in the evening. I had the bouillabaisse pasta. The shrimp were the only item in the dish that were (remarkably) not overcooked. The sauce had potential, but again, lack of seasoning failed to deliver any flavor.
