    Our party of four had another outstanding dinner here. Appetizers were excellent from the spinach salad to the she crab soup. The lobster and asparagus appetizer was both light and full of flavor. The filet mignon was among the best we have ever had. Our server was Mario who was highly professional and attentive, gave great descriptions of the dishes, and was absolutely charming. A lovely dining experience all around.

    The chef is creative and masterful at combining flavors and textures that are both well presented and delicious. Our service from Scott was properly attentive. He knows the menu well and did a great job pairing three courses with three different wines. This was done in a warm and welcoming atmosphere that made my birthday dinner unforgettable. We are addicted and will return tomorrow.

    I never write reviews. We enjoyed the food and the view. Our waitress was good. Our negative was the hostess. When we arrived at 5:30 there was only one other couple in the entire restaurant. Our table of 5 were dressed in sport coats, khakis and dresses. Maybe a bit nicer than the dress of the other couple and the rest of the patrons who came in afterwards. The hostess sat us directly in front of the entrance to the kitchen which was very noisy. The entire restaurant was empty. We asked to move and she tried to sit us directly in front of the entrance near the hostess stand and bathrooms. . We asked to move to the nice table out of the way in the main dining. She told me it was not available. Again the entire restaurant was empty. My husband asked her if there were special reservations levels that we didn’t know of? She then said we could have the table but had to wait!!! It was already set. She made us stand to the side for 5 minutes and then came back and sat us. The restaurant was still empty except for the other couple. She kept saying some people would prefer the other tables. Who likes to sit in front of the kitchen or bathrooms?Is this surprising to hostesses? It kind of ruined the entire meal for us. My teens were mortified and asked if there was something wrong in their appearance to be sat in obviously an undesirable location. Such a horrible way to start off our special meal that we were all looking forward to during our trip.

    Perfection. Service was exceptional, attentive, knowledgeable but never intrusive. Food was excellent. We especially enjoyed the filet mignon, she crab soup, and the creative, unusual foie gras presentation. An elegant evening out to celebrate a major birthday. One unusual feature of the dining room is that if you choose mountain views, the table is in a hallway along the side of the room. If you want to be in the main room, the exterior views are not as prime, although the room itself is lovely. The mountain view hallway tables are quieter which might also be a good thing. We had a wonderful evening and look forward to returning.

    I know the food is pricey but I left feeling like my mouth had the time of its life! Totally worth it. If your not a foodie you won’t think so but if you are looking for a one of a kind experience for your mouth during each course this is the place to eat. I will be trying to relive this experience again every time I fine dine. Thank you!

    The food at the Biltmore Inn dining room was over the top and and the service was fantastic, albeit the food was a little slow coming out of the kitchen between courses, but our waitress Danielle made up for it! Danielle was exceptional, the rack of lamb was the best I’ve ever had and the wine pairings as chosen by Danielle were exceptional....

    Everything from the bread to the wine was outstanding. I love mushrooms and the recommended filet was the best one I've ever eaten. The other two in my party got the scallops and chicken and said both were delicious. The cranberry rolls with the zesty butter were so good. Definitely recommend dining here when visiting the estate.

    We had an elegant dinner at The Dining Room. The facility is beautiful with expansive views in multiple directions. The food was of very high quality and presented artistically. The chef expertly accommodated two allergies. The server, Harley was top notch, classy and experienced. If you are looking for a low price point, this will not be a recommended venue. One complaint, the restaurant shouldn’t charge for parking if you’re dining at the property. Not even the Ritz does that! Cheers.

    Cheeseburger was bland and not cooked to order. Fries were soggy and oily, and had no salt at all. Price was way too high ($20). Tasteless meal. Being a more elegant restaurant (one would assume), when I asked for ketchup, I received ketchup bags, like the ones they throw at you in a diner or on a plane.
