Very attentive waitstaff in a beautiful location with a wonderful view of the mountains. All of our party enjoyed the filet mignonette which was cooked as desired. Crab cake appetizer was great and each couple shared the 4oz cake with each other. Very extensive wine list for choices by the glass or bottle.

The food here is unmatched. Such excellent flavor combinations and beautiful presentation. The dining room itself is just nice enough to feel like fine dining, but not so done up that it feels pretentious. Our dinner server, Mario, was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered us great, friendly service. It's a highlight whenever we visit Asheville.

Overall disappointed. I was very excited to have lunch at The Dining Room. I very much loved the atmosphere, including the awesome views of the grounds of the Biltmore. The service was mediocre, probably less than mediocre considering the "fine dining" experience I think they are going for. The server was very nice, but may have just had too many tables to give good service. He didn't even ask if I wanted another glass of wine, if I wanted dessert or a cup of coffee. I thought that was a huge miss.

The food. Very disappointing. I ordered the French Onion soup and the Harvest salad. The soup was actually pretty good. That is until I found the piece of red plastic in it. They were very nice about it and did take the soup off my bill. The salad-well, hmm. There were literally two leaves of Kale in the "salad". But they certainly made up for it with the goat cheese and onions. Based on the particular dish I had perhaps a more fit name would be the "Goat Cheese and Onion" salad. Now I absolutely LOVE goat cheese, and it was indeed very good goat cheese, but the ratio of cheese to "salad" was way off in my opinion. And onions- same as the goat cheese. I love them and they were over represented in the dish.

Overall, I was quite disappointed in my experience at The Dining Room. While the atmosphere and views are top notch, the service and the food seem to have plenty of room for improvement.

We love this venue. It is one of the main reasons that we keep returning to the Inn at Biltmore. There is enough variety for us dine here three nights in row. The portions are generous but the best part is the engaging staff.

First time at Dining Room and Biltmore. We had an excellent experience. Top notch service. Friendly, classy and first rate. Great view of mountains and sunset. Food was excellent (we had filet and scallops). We also went to terrace lounge prior to dinner and great service there as well. Will be back and recommend it.

The whole experience exceeded our expectations. The service staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The frequently inquired about our satisfaction with our dining experience and made adjustments as needed. The food quality was superb. Our entrees of steak and fish were equivalent to 5 star restaurants we’ve enjoyed in major cities. We look forward to a return visit soon.

A wonderful experience. We were socially distanced and we had an exquisite view of the sun setting on the mountains from the big windows throughout the dining room. I enjoyed the salmon which was perfectly cooked. We enjoyed a bottle of wine. The maitre d visited our table. Our waitress was attentive and polite. This was an A+ evening.

This is a must experience restaurant. Staffing first and foremost provided such attentive and amazing service. Waited on by Harlee as we celebrated a bride to be and it was a highlight of our weekend celebrating. The salmon and chicken dish along with She Crab soup were favorites at our table. The butter, even the butter, was incredible with a sweet citrus taste. The view from the back patio is amazing at the dinner hour. The only reason I marked atmosphere as quiet is because we love the Biltmore Radio App tunes and it would have been great background music but that might just be a matter of personal taste. I won't miss this experience in future visits!

The service at the Dining Room is impeccable. You feel very well taken care of from the moment you arrive. **Make reservations in advance!

The appetizer and dessert course were the best parts of the meal. While the main was delicious, portion sizes were nearly overwhelming, leaving little room to continue or finish.

Overall, I highly recommend a visit but be conscious of meal size and be ready to enjoy!

(The bread is absolutely phenomenal!)

Our waiter, Scott, was amazing. He was attentive, but not overly, could answer all of our questions and gave perfect advice on the options available . The food was first class from beginning to end. We began with the lobster and asparagus first course, followed by the Ceasar salad. For the main course I had the filet mignon and my husband had the Cobia. Everything we ate was so delicious and perfectly cooked and seasoned. I would recommend the Biltomre dining room to anyone visiting here. My husband and I both felt this was definitely one of our top 5 dining experiences! Well done!
