    Service, friendliness of staff, and food were excellent. We went there for a birthday celebration. Very disappointed in that, even though they recognized that was the case and said Happy Birthday to the individual, nothing else was done to make it special. In the past, the restaurant had provided some dessert for the person. For the expensive prices, they could have done something. We would recommend the restaurant, not as a weekly visit - too expensive - but special occasion or just a nice dinner. Just expect to pay alot for your meal.

    This was truly an experience I was not expecting. Because of work and other engagements, I routinely eat in upscale restaurants, and yet The Dining Room at the Biltmore Inn was a very pleasant surprise that surpassed my expectations. The attentiveness, professionalism and indeed charm of servers, the food itself including presentation and taste, and the delightfulness of our drink choices all combined for a memorable and wonderful experience

    My husband and I dined here for our 2 year anniversary and among all the fine-dining places we’ve been to, this place was by far the best all around! Everything was absolutely incredible and we plan on coming back again! Highly recommend dining here if you want high expectations met! Bravo to The Dining Room! Our waiter, Jonathan, had great recommendations for drinks, the main course, along with meeting our expectations for creating the dessert we wanted! Kudos for a wonderful night as they helped us celebrate our anniversary!!

    Great ambiance. House Cabernet was a very good pour. Non alcoholic cocktail was good and a welcome addition to the drink menu. Food was very good. Crabcake appetizer was tasty but a little cold. Grouper entree was excellent and the veal osso bucco was tasty. Limited dessert options. A solid four stars.

    If you are looking for the white table cloth dinner with a dress code then there is no better place in Asheville. Food is incredible, service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is dining at it's finest. If you are worried about menu prices then this is not the place for you. If you want a memorable experience for a special occasion then you are in for a treat.

    Needing to pay $100 for my wife and I to enter the Biltmore grounds at 5:45 for a 6:00 reservation was a near no starter. However even after that the experience was more than worth it. A fantastic experience in fine dining that is hard to find in these days. We wholeheartedly recommend this.

    Ensure that you are NOT seated in the right-side dining room. The room affords zero-ambience. Which is especially disappointing, to the point of appalling, when you factor that this venue is billed as the most romantic restaurant in Asheville. The right-side room feels like you are sitting in any generic banquet room in any less than desirable convention center. This is accentuated by the bright lights, lack of any decor, music, or any redeeming qualities whatsoever. Basically, the room is a hallway for emergency egress with an adjacent service way for the kitchen. It is overflow seating at best. However, the room is so bad that anyone relegated to sitting in that area should be fully comped. At a minimum, offered a very, very significant discount. Given you will not be afforded any discount, if they attempt to seat you in the right-side dining room FLATLY REFUSE. Unless you are sat in the main or left side dining area, this venue offers no reward. And, when you are dropping $500 for dinner for two... just, DO BETTER BILTMORE.

    The elegance of the Inn is beautifully reflected in the food and service in the Dining Room. The tables are nicely spaced for comfort and the menu superb. We had lovely cocktails before, then enjoyed She crab soup, fresh green salad, then entrees of filet mignon and lamb loin…The lamb (locally sourced) was the best I have ever tasted. The meal was thoughtfully paced along with amuse busche/pallet cleanser. The Biltmore Estate Cabernet paired perfectly with the entrees. It just had to breathe and warm up for a few minutes. Enjoy!

    I really loved the service and almost all of the food - the dessert for me was lacking. What was advertised as a yeast donut came out as 4 small, dense fried medallions - not the airy donut I was expecting. But that was the only problem for me. Honestly everything else was wonderful. Even the butter that comes with the bread, I found myself eating just the butter off my knife. My waiter also recommended the perfect wine to pair with my meal when I mentioned there were two I was considering - he wasn't wrong. My cocktail was also top notch. Also the Biltmore has a relationship with French Broad Chocolate (they use FBC for their wine pairing experience at the winery) which I think is terrible chocolate (why I will never do the chocolate wine pairing at the winery) and the pretty gold-dusted chocolate coin they give you with the bill is French Broad's chocolate (I went to FBC and spent $68 on a handful of chocolate bars and hated them all - one of those bar flavors is what they use the coins for. I wound up giving them away to a friend. FBC's drinking chocolate is amazing, though). They didn't say it but as soon as I bit into it, I knew/remembered it was FBC. It was the only thing I left uneaten.

    It was our 20th Wedding Anniversary and an exceptional experience. The great experience was felt from the moment we checked into the dinning room. Our server was Elijah and he made the evening fantastic. Experienced, knowledgeable, and outgoing. Guided us through the menu, laughed and celebrated with us. To our surprise he brought us an ice cream tray which was home made in the property. Upon returning to our room we were surprised to find a plate of home made treats and a beautiful note which was much appreciated. During breakfast this morning Jermaine continued the exceptional hospitality along with the chef. We are local and whenever possible we will make this our destination for our wedding anniversary. After breakfast we walked the property and enjoyed our time meeting folks and enjoying the deck and coffee. Highly recommend the Biltmore! Thank you to everyone involved.

    It is a place that mkes you feel special. Food is $$$$ but the quality is AA, the service is perfect, never less than half a glass of water or 1/4 glass wine. Atmosphere, not crowded, elegant. Only downer was a new client came in with uber amounts of perfume. Luckily we had just completed our dessert. Otherwise, we would have had to ask to be moved, the perfume way over powered your smell sene. And I know they would have moved us. The experience waas totally worth it.
