    Everything at the Bistro was fabulous - the food, the service and the surroundings. The only thing that caught us unaware was that we almost couldn’t even get on the Biltmore property to get there.

    Everything was delicious. The artisan breads with honey butter were excellent. The savory beignets were so creative and unique, the best appetizer I've had in a long time! My ribeye was perfect, and my mom loved her halibut. Wish we were able to try dessert, but we were beyond stuffed.

    Our food was really really good. My husband had the ribeye...very tender and cooked to perfection. I had the halibut...the best I've ever had. Our salads were very fresh. Bobby was our server and he couldn't have been any better. He answered all our questions patiently. He was magically there when we needed him, but didn't hover. He seemed happy in his occupation.

    The savory beignets were very good and the perfect amount of salty. The halibut was phenomenal- I could eat it every day. Price-wise, was fish and rice a $52 plate? Unless I'm unaware of a drastic shortage in halibut, then, no. I was suprised it cost more than the duck breast. I was excited for the coconut cream pie but it was more of a plain cream pie with a coconut crust. I tried to make the perfect bite but it was lacking. The noise level was a little high at times, the chairs seemed more like fancy patio chairs (indoors). The service was excellent.

    Great experience at the Bistro. I had the ribeye which did not disappoint. Wife had the halibut which was delicious also. (She granted me a small taste) Tip of the hat to our server Bobby who provided top notch service and gave us an insightful history of the village’s history.

    My rib eye supper was really great. The beef was very tender and tasty. I asked for medium+ and that is exactly what I got. The veggies with it were wonderful and were the perfect complement to the beef. The coconut cream pie was a brilliant variation on the usual cream pie, and was very light. It was the best meal I have eaten in a long while.

    This was hands down the most amazing dining experience we have ever had. Every aspect was incredible from the extremely attentive service provided by Nataly to the melt in your mouth filet and delicious sides. There was not one part of this experience that disappointed either myself or my husband. This has become our new favorite restaurant and we will be returning in the future.

    The four of us had an excellent meal at The Bistro. The food was exceptional especially the Pork Tenderloin. We also had the halibut, duck and rib eye. The rib eye was ok for a restaurant that is not a steakhouse. Our server was attentive and we would definitely eat here again.

    A vegetable and/or starch would have been nice with the filet entree. The price fixe menu did not offer a vegetable or potato with the entree- a bit skimpy for $200

    A Valentines special 3 course meal. The 3 courses were excellent. From the arugula salad to the house made burrata. Main course halibut and lamb loin. Great fresh flavors and very good portions. Service was excellent. I was very disappointed that Valentine was not anywhere. No flowers no special plating or anything to show the celebration.
