    I was disappointed: 1. This is supposed to be a top tier restaurant. It even has a statement on the website about Dress to Impress. I was expecting something quite special. Yet, in the dining room I was in only one table had a male with a sports jacket. I was looking forward to a special occasion not a diner that looked like all others.It took away from the specialness that I was expecting.either don't allow the wrong dress or offer spare sports jacket 2. It was my wife's birthday and the staff knew it. Yet, nothing special was done. Quite surprised 3. we ordered wine by the glass. My glass was empty and never was asked for a refill This was not the very special experience I was looking forward to

    Service was great but had to send my $65 dollar steak back and didn’t want another because my husband’s food was served and I would have eaten alone. Disappointing 50th anniversary celebration to say the least.

    Service and ambience were excellent. I love the fact that they had hand stuffed blue cheese olives for my martini. She crab soup was the best ever. Rabbit was a solid entree. I was disappointed with the cheese plate though. Too many enhancements (jellies) and the cheese selection just didn’t wow me. But overall, I recommend the venue and I will return.

    We hoped for a great dining experience and they hit it out of the park! Price was appropriate for the entire experience and we would definitely do it again. The only question I had was dress code. We followed the rules and was expecting male members to have a least a sports jacket and that was not the case.

    Having Dinner at the Biltmore Dining Room was very special. The staff, our waiter and assistants provided us with impeccable service including giving us a table by a window which was very nice. Our waiter was able to provide us with excellent information and suggestions on menu items. In turn our meals were wonderfully prepared and were most enjoyable! The evening was truly a memorable one!

    Location, atmosphere and service stand out. This restaurant makes you feel special and focuses on every detail to make your experience wonderful. Definitely, recommend dining here, especially for special occasions. My wife has an egg allergy and they asked about allergies and then catered to make sure there was no exposure, even making a special vegan desert that was not on the menu. Praise this dining experience!

    Service was terrific, as was the view. The halibut was delicious, but the 'deconstructed' cassoulet was not a cassoulet says my husband, a lover of true cassoulet like the ones found in San Francisco. Otherwise, it was lovely.

    Pros: The restaurant has a great view. The crab soup was good. The main waitress was pleasant. Cons: why bother posting a dress code when many individuals are allowed to dine not only casually but in athleisure. One lady walked around to check out the establishment with no shoes on! The steaks were overdone. The desserts were lackluster. I have no idea how this place got the reviews it has. Perhaps these are paid reviews. Would not recommend.

    I was looking forward to having a 5 star experience but expected more from the Biltmore. Firstly, a $28 for margarita is pretty ridiculous. It was spicy with passion fruit but lacked sweetness and it was mostly ice. In fact, all of the cocktails were $18-40 each including the sprtitzer! I had the lamb and the quality was good. My husband had the salmon cooked medium and it was overcooked, dry and lacked flavor. The cesar salad was teeny tiny and looked incomplete on the plate. The ambiance was very stuffy and antiquated. The menus had light boxes in them so they lit up when you opened them. I think that was cool 40 years ago. The music was classical which is fine but they need to liven up the vibe. It was a bit of a snooze fest overall.

    The dining room is quiet and elegant. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with she crab soup, tuna tartare and filet mignons (perfectly cooked). For dessert, we indulged in a lemon lavender cake with ice cream. Our server was a lovely combination of formality with warmth. Highly recommend!

    If you are visiting the Biltmore estate and you love fine food, you MUST dine here. Set in a beautiful room with impressive views of the surrounding mountains. Service is superb. Wine list is very good and fairly priced. The food is simply outstanding. We dine out a lot and this makes our top 5 for the last 12 months, easily.
