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.

Wonderful meal. The only let down was the salad. I ordered the Ceasar salad it it was rather bland. The rest of my meal was excellent. Service was perfect.

We are always pleased by our dining experience at The Bistro. We go there for special occasions. The service is always great and the food is very good. I like the hearty nature of the menu, and we particularly like the French onion soup, the excellent beef filets, and the duck.
Our choice of table (front booth) was made available to us which made our anniversary more special.

After an unexpected long wait for our food, one dish came out cold. Manager and server were very apologetic. The second dish was excellent, bread basket great, best cheesecake I've had in a long time. Server Jill was excellent. If ever have occasion to return would eat there again.

Grossly overpriced. Trout was very oily and salty. Salad was drenched in dressing. Cornish game hen had hardly 2oz of meat along with some carrot and potato side. Roasted pepper soup was good. Service was good as well. No drinks. No dessert. Bill came to over 100 bucks. Save your time and money and pass on this place.

Very disappointing. Poor service. Blaming COVID for their lack of urgency. Waited over an hour for meal.
Not what I expected for a restaurant inside the Biltmore. I’ve had reservations for weeks and looked forward to it.

The location is spectacular; the hotel the restaurant is attached to is above average. But, The Bistro was a real disappointment. We will not be making reservations there again.

Clean, very friendly and attentive. Practicing social distancing with 50% of tables removed. My duck was delicious but a little fattier than I like it.
You must have a reservation during this time.

The food was delicious, we went with the fried almond brie, french onion soup, scallops and steak frites. We also enjoyed their take on a dirty martini (with blue cheese stuffed olives) and some Biltmore brut. As much as I could go on and on about the food the best part of the experience was our server, Elania. She was SO friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our evening because of her amazing customer service and smile. We will be back!

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.

The ribeye was the star of the show - a good cut cooked to perfection. It seemed to be a popular choice across the restaurant as you could hear the orders being called in the kitchen. A good place for a special evening.

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!!!
