Everything was wonderful. Our waitress was very friendly and great! It was our anniversary so she brought out a beautiful tray with four delicious handmade truffles with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate that one of pastry chefs wrote -- exquisite and delicious. Our meals were divine. We went for lunch. The only complaint that we had was the noise level but it's that way in almost every restaurant we go to. The food was outstanding. Celebrating our anniversary there was a beautiful way to spend it.
What fun! The food was exquisite, the service charming, the ambiance appropriately casual almost rustic, and the total experience was exceptional. Biltmore wines are much better than 30 years ago. The fresh local produce was a delight. We will be back!
Wonderful setting. Meal and service were top notch.
An enjoyable meal. Excellent service.
I had an amazing trout dish and a fantastic squash soup! My mom's chicken dish was bland and our server took it off the bill. While the bathroom was in the basement, I was grateful that there was a handicapped bathroom on the main floor for my mom to use.
Great, casual restaurant, great for lunch after visiting the Biltmore House & Gardens. It's right across from the winery which is convenient if you are looking to stop in and do some wine tasting. We had butternut squash soup, turkey sandwiches, & creme brulee - yum! We also sampled a few glasses of Biltmore Wine, also lovely!
Food was excellent! The ambiance was not- no table cloths, metal chairs and tables outside, dark and brown inside. Waiter was hard to get attention from. But can not complain about the food at all- very good.
$42 lamb should have been $12. The atmosphere was nice. The wait staff was terrific. But, my roast lamb loin meal left much to be desired. It tasted average and was really chewy. At that price point, I expected it to melt in my mouth and have more flavor. My Mother's broccoli had more flavor than anything on my plate. I basically left a full plate behind cause my jaws couldn't take the chewing anymore.
Ordered the octopus & squid which came burnt & inedible. Sent the meal back and was never approached by management concerning the issue with the meal. Service was mediocre, definitely not worth the high price tag. This is the third poor meal I have had here, and I will not be going back. I have been to many of the restaurants on the grounds and been very satisfied, but the Bistro has been consistently not worth the money. Pick another restaurant on property for a better experience.
The ribeye was outstanding... Highly recommended..
Very nice Biltmore atmosphere. Food was good but very expensive for what you get. It is impressive to take friends/family.
What an excellent lunch! It takes a little drive to arrive from the Biltmore House but the relaxing atmosphere with truly outstanding food and service was a welcomed retreat from the Biltmore experience. Tops my list of available options.
We are local and frequently go to the Biltmore House. It’s been awhile since we ate at the Bistro and the last time we were disappointed. I’m glad to say this time was MUCH improved. The menu had just changed the day we had dinner there and the food was excellent. I had the poached halibut which was well cooked and delicious. My husband had the filet which he said was cooked to perfection. It was my birthday so we shared a bottle of Biltmore champagne and that was excellent as well. Our server was very good, there when needed and not obtrusive. He shared the menu changes with us and brought some chocolates for us to enjoy with coffee. All in all, I would say the Bistro is back to its former excellence and I would definitely recommend it.
We came for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. The staff was exceptionally courteous and friendly. Our toast to each other occurred exactly at the time we were pronounced husband and wife. Not planned that way but felt wonderful for it to happen that way. The food was very good i.e., we had happy plates.
We enjoyed the great food and excellent service. Even more impressive- fresh ingredients grown and raised on the estate.
They are very understanding, i was late for my reservation and they gave me a later time. The food and service was outstanding. I plan to go there again sometime.
Last stop at the Biltmore house. Wife had fish of the day (stripped bass) and I had the lamb. Both dishes were spectacular, both in taste and presentation. Perfect way to end a vacation.
Great food and fresh
Wonderful experience. Our server, Julie, was an absolute delight and her service was some of the finest my wife and I have ever experienced. The food, steak and trout were cooked to perfection and was thoroughly enjoyed.
Wonderful place for Easter dinner! The food was wonderful and great value!
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone! It was very pleasant. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable. All of the food was perfect!
Been going there for 18 years, probably 4 or 5 times every year. And only one substandard meal. Love the place !
We had the Prix fixe lunch on Easter Sunday. Calamari was excellent. Turkey sandwiches with cranberry were delicious. Rhubarb creme brûlée was fabulous. The Cedric’s Brown Ale is unique. Service was excellent!
We both ordered the trout and it was very good. They cook it with pork bellies and it picks up the salty flavor of the pork. We also had French onion soup to start. The cheese was melted over the sides of the bowl and was crunchy. It was really more food than I could eat. All the restaurants at Biltmore are very good. This one happens to be very good and reasonably priced. I would recommend it.
The Bistro is a very nice restaurant for special occasions or a nice Sunday lunch. The atmosphere is casual to little dressy. The food is very good with special chef selections and of course there is the Biltmore wine list also.
Excellent capstone to day at Biltmore Estate.
Chicken entree was perfectly cooked and pickled butternut squash was tasty and unique. Red snapper was great too. Nice atmosphere and service was wonderful.
One of the best 6 oz filet I have ever experienced. Perfectly cooked medium, juicy, flavorful. Better than big name steak specialty restaurants.
Table companions raved about the trout.
Overall, a wonderful experience, despite lackluster wait staff.
Food is good but is getting pricey for what it is and not quit as good as it was in the past.
If you are staying at the Biltmore it is a good choice. Lunch is a little better value but still a bit pricey. We used to go fairly often, but not as much anymore.
Excellent dining experience. Food and service where excellent
Enjoy all of Biltmore, never had a bad time food or drinks
Wonderful meal and great service! We enjoyed our evening.
I have lost count how many times we have eaten at the Bistro. It's the only restaurant on the Biltmore Estate we dine at for dinner. Service is always impeccable; food is typically outstanding. Ambiance is warm and inviting, with classic Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Billie Holiday, etc. tunes playing low in background. Love this place!
Arrived at 6:00pm and tables about half full thus it was a low noise level. Had the Dry Creek Cab, a Cesar salad, and thick grilled pork chop which was excellent flavor and taste. Might be the best pork chop ever and I am a pork lover.
Okay experience don’t think I would go back. Charge a $2 upgrade for fries and was burnt. Waiter was good.
Great menu and food, enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Parking was convenient and nearby.
My steak was tough and the flavor was OK but not good. The general consensus of our party was that the food was not bad but certainly not memorable. It was overpriced for the value. The service was good but not great. I would not recommend this restaurant and we will not be patronizing bistro again.
I had possibly the best pan-sauted trout fillets ever. The service is helpful and attentive and works to make the customer happy.
Excellent! Recommend it to all my friends. It is my favorite restaurant at Biltmore Estates.
The ambiance was wonderful, the food was delicious and the service great.
Great food and atmosphere. Bree was a great server
We'll be back soon.
