Amazing cocktails and she-crab soup (as always), excellent osso buco and lamb entrees, and outstanding service from Elijah. Thanks for a wonderful evening! We dine here when we want to splurge a bit, and it is always worth every penny!

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!

Let me say for starters that I guess we need to do more research next time. We were advised by friends to book lunch at the stables. When I went to do that, the stables were full. So, when I saw The Dining Room at the Biltmore Estate pop up, I thought, "Oh how fancy, we will eat lunch at the Biltmore. I did not realize that this was a 20 minute drive from the estate and we were late for our reservation. No worries, because this hotel dining room was pretty empty. My children ordered cheeseburgers plain, with just cheese. Both of them came out wrong with the bacon jam on them. One of them came out at first as just an order of fries. The server was very apologetic an they were supposedly rushing through the re-cook of the burger, but it took just as long as the first order and her food arrived when we were all finished eating.

We went for a late lunch at The Dining Room and it was delicious! The portions are absolutely huge and easily shareable. The French onion soup was incredible and so were the truffle fries. We also enjoyed a grilled chicken Caesar wrap which was lovely. We will absolutely be back.

Outstanding steak done to perfection (medium rare) and scallop dinner was also excellent. We had no expectation that the dinner would be a "value" given the resort setting so with that as a set up the portions were larger than we expected, so you could split salad and dinner and splurge with a dessert and drinks

This one was pretty much a home run. Our server, Scott, was excellent. Attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful about the locale, immediately come to mind. The food was delicious from salad through dessert. I had an Osso Buco that was absolutely great. My wife had a chicken dish that she loved and of course I forgot the name. To me, this is a prime example of what fine dining should be.

We ate lunch at the Biltmore Inn after touring the Biltmore House. It was lovely. Beautiful servings and the cocktails were just perfect! After lunch, we went to our wine tasting at Antler Hill Winery. A perfect ending to a perfect day.

Ordered the steak medium rare but it was cooked medium well. I didn't send it back because I didn't want the negativity for my wife. It was very dry and I didn't finish it.

We got there at 8 pm and didn’t get our food delivered until 9:30. We were so hungry when we got there but after such a long wait, we really just wanted to leave. They delivered some food around 9, but it was the wrong food and we had to wait another 30 minutes. It kind of spoiled our evening.

We enjoyed our dinner very much! And the service was superb! We weren't very pleased with where our table was located. It felt as if they put a table in a hallway between two dining areas. A brick wall on one side and a brick wall with a large plant on the other, leaving about 3 foot walk space between our table and the plant. But overall we had a nice dinner.

Our first trip to the Biltmore and it was Fantastic. We had dinner in the Dining Room celebrating a birthday and a weekend getaway. The service was top notch and the food was superb. We both had the beef tenderloin and it was outstanding (cooked perfectly). The desert was outstanding as well. I can’t say enough good things about the Dining Room, we plan on coming back again for sure. It was nice to be able to “dress” up after not really being able to enjoy this level of dining in almost a year due to COVID. The entire staff did a fantastic job. Thanks for the great memories and EXCELLENT food.

I haven't eaten at the Inn in a couple of years. The surroundings are just as beautiful as I remember. We had impeccable, friendly service from Scarlet and her colleagues. The lunch menu is a relatively small one, but the food was delicious. The bacon jam on the burger is the perfect addition! Our son enjoyed the friend chicken sandwich, and our daughter-in-law the Blue Ridge club. I've eaten everywhere on the Biltmore Estate, but the Inn is a special favorite.

My daughter has a dairy/gluten/egg allergy and was able to eat out and eat “normal” food without feeling miserable within hours for the first time in years.
I called ahead and let someone at the Dining Room know days ahead of our visit and they had a wonderful Df/gf/eg focaccia bread and were able to accommodate her first and second course meals to her needs-and the food was wonderful.
They also had an allergy friendly dessert (her birthday) that was delicious. The attention to detail and courtesy and effort put forth in making her feel at ease with several special requests was appreciated.

Did not return vm requesting reservation. Biltmore customer care told me to make reservation online. Did so. Had confirmed reservation from Opentable. Arrived at The Diningroom and was told restaurant was closed at my reservation time. Total waste of our time, and staff member was rude and condescending. Didn’t care that The Diningroom hadn’t put an accurate schedule on Opentable. I will never eat at The Diningroom where they clearly do not care about their customers. They don’t care enough to return phone messages, nor do they care enough to put accurate information on Opentable.

One word summary -- superb. No "smashed potatoes (i.e., they still peel them) here! Melt in your mouth beef; simple a la carte pricing without a plethora of "optional up charges", great menu variety, multiple' specially-baked bread dish delights. . . Truly magnificent dining and décor as befits a place whose mission is to recreate the gilded age for the general public.
