Host staff not as friendly as our wait staff. Andrew & Scott were phenomenal. Seafood melange was outstanding but all of our desserts were underwhelming.

Every thing about our dining experience seems to be in keeping with the style of those that lived on the estate in its prime. The staff is extremely attentive, the food delicious and well prepared. We could not have been more pleased.

Great high-end restaurant with great food and service. Excellent waiter with great suggestions and always on top of everything. Great food and wine list. Scenery is beautiful. It was our anniversary so the chef sent out a great little dessert, which was very thoughtful. We would certainly return when visiting again.

We experienced the 3 course menu with a nice bottle of wine. Found the Braised Lamb which I ordered to be quite salty thinking it might have been the celery root that was in the dish. When I mentioned this to the waitress she had extra carrots brought out, but they were not cooked properly, so I passed on those.
They brought out the desserts while we were still enjoying our wine?!? Felt rushed as we didn't see why... it was only 9:15pm. Had better meals..

We really enjoyed our experience at The Dining Room. It was our 45th Anniversary celebration, and the staff did numerous things to make us feel special, including seating us at a table near the fireplace. The food and service were both outstanding.

We had an enjoyable evening experience.
Celebrating my wife’s birthday.
We had memories of visiting there over 35 years ago with our young children. It was quite enjoyable then and the Christmas atmosphere was incredible. Changing times made it special however the olden age was quite nice!

My husband and I were so excited to spend the evening at the Biltmore and we had left the Atlanta area in more than enough time to be able to check in at 4 p.m. and get ready for our 5:30 dinner reservations which I made on line days in advance and I I also requested to sit next to the fire place as we did for our 10th anniversary. See, this weekend we were celebrating our 25th anniversary. Well, traffic was crazy! We'd move along at posted speed or greater and then come to a halt for no reason. This continued like a pattern of some sort all the was to Asheville. We called the restaurant in advance of our reservation to let them know we'd more than likely be late. Turns out they didn't have a reservation for us but would do everything they could to seat us when we arrived. Now could you imagine driving four plus hours and finding out you didn't have a reservation? They took care of us beautifully! Stuart was our server and he and his crew were amazing to say the least! I have multiple food allergies and he was almost excited about what he could create for me. It was awesome! His knowledge of the menu and food preparation was impeccable! Our meal was delicious and then my husband and I enjoyed the rest of our evening at the estate listening to carolers and a beautiful harpist. Stuart said we could return to the restaurant after closing to take a picture in front of the fire place just as we did at our 10th anniversary. Thanks again Biltmore for a wonderful evening! Merry Christmas! Love, the Giffin's

We had an amazing dinner! Scott was our main server and he went over and above to make our daughter’s 21st birthday dinner an incredible experience. My husband and I have eaten here many times and The Dining Room never disappoints! The food is expertly prepared and is delicious! Service is impeccable.

Outstanding! What a gorgeous place with fantastic service. The food was sensational. My dining companion has an actual food allergy and the chef could not have been more accommodating. We loved our waitress Danielle. She is a true asset to their staff! I highly recommend the Dining Room for a special night out.

Celebrating a birthday- this was much more than I expected. First off the staff were amazing from the host to the waiter and other staff- always taking care of us! The food was incredible- we did the five course meal- every course was impeccably plated and every bite was amazing! A must go to experience! I want to go back and try more of the menu! Many thanks for the wonderful experience!!

My filet was cut in half horizontally and splayed on my plate! What a shame to serve a beef filet that way. I’m from Texas, that’s a crime there!

7:45 reservation after a long day touring the Biltmore Estate. My husband and I ordered the three course fixed price dinner @ $70.00 each. I ordered the beet salad, pork tenderloin and cheese plate for dessert. The Beet and goat cheese appetizer was quite small and very tasty. The pork tenderloin was some of the best I’ve eaten, anywhere! I did not care for the broccolini as it was quite tough but the risotto was delicious. Dessert cheese plate was so generous with grapes, almonds, variety of cheese and a few crisps that the waiter was kind enough to box up and we took it back to our room. My husband had the she crab soup, seafood melange and a pumpkin brittle “Tart type” dessert that was delicious. All in all, a lovely evening with a great wait staff.
We also had Thanksgiving dinner there, Turkey for my husband and I had a filet that was like butter.....yum!
Spend the money and enjoy the food and dining experience!

The evening’s experience achieved perfection in every way. Be warned that there is much competition for reservations and you may not dine at your first preferred time. Despite the near full house, conversation was possible at a normal tone. The wait staff was attentive, helpful and let the diner set the pace for the table. This is a special occasion dining experience that will have you looking for reasons to return. I plan to return in February for my birthday. I recommend that you find the time to dine here.

The Dining Room exceeded our expectations. We went here following our engagement to celebrate and the servers and staff were very accommodating and provided a few “extras” to help us celebrate such as a tasting plate of desserts with “congratulations” on the plate. The servers were very attentive without hovering during our romantic evening. Will absolutely return next time we are in the area.

Excellent food and attentive service but an overly bright dining room that lacks atmosphere and poor table situated at the bottom of the stairs in the draught was not great. A shame because it’s a lovely dining room dressed for the holidays with a great fire.

We enjoyed the service and atmosphere, both outstanding. We chose the classic European/french 5 course meals, but they offer a 3 course or a la carte format as well. The food was amazing. Sea food, Meat, Salads, and vegetarian (although we did not get to try one vegetable dish due to it being gone already by the time we ordered). The service team was superbly led by our waiter and everything timed for a leisurely paced meal. This is not the place to get a quick snack. We were amazed by each dish as it arrived and enjoyed the whole meal thoroughly. The Wine list is also amazing.

We had such a great experience eating at the Inn at Biltmore Estates. You never know what you are going to get at hotel, even a really nice one. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised. The service was exceptional and the food was even more exceptional. Our appetizers and entrees were fantastic and the service staff made us feel special all evening. We can't wait to eat here again.
