Excellent in every way. Great anniversary.
If as much attention were paid to preparing a meal with flavor and taste as is paid to the pretension, it would be a great experience. However, bland, disappointing food accompanied by a most pretentious manner.
Dinning room was freezing cold. Service was slow. Food was overpriced and of the five courses only one was edible. Charged a higher price on bill from what was on our original menu. Will not go back and would not recommend this restaurant.
We we're celebrating my wife's birthday and we had the best experience anyone could ask for. The food was fantastic and the service made us feel like royalty. We decided on the five course option and, although it was a lot of food, we were happy we made that choice. I'm sure the three course option would've been plenty of food, but we are foodies and there were so many yummy options, we wanted to try as many different offerings as possible. I would highly recommend it, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. Worth every penny!
Great food and ambiance. Perfect place for that special night out.
Birthday visit for the wife
An amazing experience with impeccable service and exquisite food! Our service and experience was also elevated by our server, Hank! He was so kind and made us feel so special!
Very upscale dining place. It was more formal than I was expecting. Should have checked our bill before we left as we were charged for the wrong drink. But all in all, service was good and food was very good.
Another fabulous dining experience! Scott is simply the best server we've ever had. Be prepared to feel like a modern day guest of the Vanderbilts!
We were 4 people for dinner. Scott our waiter was outstanding. There are two options for dinner. Three or Five courses. We all had the 3 course meal with wine pairings. It was outstanding. The She Crab soup was a highlight. The Dining Room is a traditional southern ambiance. The waitstaff could not have been more accommodating.
We went the week after Christmas. A PERFECT time to go. All the holiday decorations are still up. The crowds are gone.
Wonderful atmosphere, warm and attentive staff. Food was delicious, with a big enough
selection to satisfy all. The room was elegant without being stuffy. Would definitely
recommend and will definitely be back!
Food was good. Waiter was attentive. Only negative was the hostess. The two of us were to be seated at a table set for two at the very edge of the dining room. I requested a vacant table in the center of the room but my request was denied due to the "table was set for 3". Apparently it could not be reset. The table remained vacant the whole time we were there.
My cousin and I had a beautiful day at Biltmore and this was a perfect end to the day! Highly recommend!
Service and ambiance were excellent. The menu was very creative with some interesting combinations that you might expect to see on The Food Network. The food was very good.
The food and service at The Dining Room is impeccable. One of the finest dining experiences we’ve ever had - highly recommend!
The food selections were varied. I liked the option of three or four courses. The sizes were great and just enough so that you could eat it all without feeling like you were going to waste food. Our server was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about the selections and made great suggestions when we asked. They also had gluten free food and bread options which was very nice for those of us who need that option.
Service was good. Could have been better.
Excellent 3-course dinner in a romantic, elegant atmosphere! Beautifully decorated for the holidays. We were able to relax, take our time and enjoy a memorable anniversary dinner.
My fiancé and I took our moms here for their birthdays - I think they were even more delighted than we were! Our third time here and still not a single disappointment. The service and food are both top notch.
Such a wonderful experience. The staff were all fabulous. Tay was our server - she treated us so well and made us feel so special celebrating our 33rd anniversary. The food was outstanding and the cream brûlée was the best we’ve ever had - thank you!
Excellent service, food, ambience...
My favorite place to dine..
As always, our dinner at the Dining Room on the Biltmore Estate was outstanding! Our server Stuart and his assistant Desmond made our evening so special with their attentive service. We love coming here for special occasions and can’t wait for the next opportunity to visit!
wonderful menu, extensive wine list. we had excellent service. We had a late evening reservation and the second to the last couple to leave that night. We never once felt rushed to leave.
A very exquisite restaurant to share with your better half.
The food was much better when we ate there 2 years ago (we couldnt stop talking about it). Not sure what has changed, but for the price, we expected much better. I am not sure we will go back.
Wonderful evening, and holiday experience. Plan to go for milestone birthdays.
Everyone was amazing. Great staff!!!
This was the best meal we have ever enjoyed! The meal was pricey, but perfect for our special occasion. I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant
The Dining Room is ultimate elegance. Our server, Scott, was excellent. The food was very good and the wine he recommended superb. The price is high but so is everything Biltmore which we expected.
What a beautiful setting for a romantic dinner to celebrate our birthdays - and a Christmas time visit to the Biltmore. Everything about the evening was just perfect - from the beautiful fireplace and comfortable seats to the exceptional food. It was expensive but so worth every dollar we spent.
My husband and I were visiting Biltmore and stayed on property at the Village Hotel. Since this was our Christmas present to each other, we decided to have a nice meal at the Dining Room at the Inn at Biltmore. While the food was really good, the cost outweighs the food. Our bill including tip was around $300. I had 2 glasses of champagne, and a 2 course meal, with 2 supplemental charges, and a chamomile tea at the end, while my husband had 4 mich ultras, 3 course meal with 1 supplemental charge. While my steak tartar was absolutely amazing, and my lobster fantastic, the escargot were a little on the earthy side for me. (BTW, I love escargot, so this was not my first experience) My husband had the short rib and his comment was when you are spending the money we are, we should not be able to make better short ribs at home. (side note, we are not chefs, just like to cook). He also said that he had the Chili Rubbed Ribeye, and said it was one of his top 5 steaks of all time, but the question is was it worth the $300 price tag? For dessert, they made special concessions for us since we are on a low carb diet and allowed us a dessert of a cheese plate and a berry plate. While my lobster and steak tartar were amazing, and the steak fantastic, not sure we can justify the price tag again. Service was impeccable of course, and the ambiance was really nice as well. If you have the expendable cash, feel free as the food was really good. But if you are on a budget, choose another estate restaurant. We spent half as much the day before at the bistro and liked it just as much.
Amazing dining experience! Food is great and service was awesome.
Portions of many dishes insultingly small, I began laughing when my husband's two dots of venison arrived. Worst part is, my husband, who eats all over the world, had gastric issues after eating there. Restaurant was good enough to credy hotel bill for meal, hopefully this gets resolved soon as the rest of the Biltmore experience was stellar
Four of us ate dinner and all four of us came out with similar thoughts. I also have to add that I am not a picky eater. Service was very good, Appetizer (soup) and dinner (filet) was very good although the sides were almost non existent, desert was not good (three out of four barely touched it). I also don't like my filet and vegetables/potatoes layered on top of one another. You have this huge plate and yet you only use 1/10th of it for the food ... why? I think you try to make it art instead of concentrating on taste and portions. My main meal is dinner, and for your prices, I don't think people should come out not being satisfied. I do have to say that the coffee was very good. It would have been nice to serve it in a bigger coffee cup or put a pot of it on the table so we didn't have to get the attention of someone for more. I also have to add that we had the buffet breakfast the next morning and that was very good! Wishing you a Happy New Year!
It was spectacular! The food was amazing, the service was impeccable, and an extensive wine menu. It was an extremely relaxing and enjoyable evening! Well worth it!
A menu with delightful options- and each dish was superb. Waitstaff highly trained- made us feel like royalty. A memorable evening.
I went here for my wife's birthday and it was the most magical present I could have given her!
Worth the time and the money. Sit in the window or by the fire. Don't skimp... get all 5 courses instead of 3. The portions are smaller, but the flavors are worth every bite. Ask for Frank and have him pair your wines, he is a master. We will be back again very soon.
We had superb service from Hank and we had the best seats in the house - right by the fireplace. The room was very nicely decorated for Christmas. Portion sizes were perfect (we had the 3 course, could not have finished the 5 course).
This was an incredible experience that I have and will continue to recommend to everyone I know. My Fiancé and I were celebrating our recent engagement with a nice trip out. As with many people we don’t often go out for a multi-course meal, and as a result were lost from the beginning, however, Stuart and Andrew guided us through the entire experience excellently. Our meals were all delicious and I can not recommend Stuart or Andrew enough as they were friendly, knowledgeable and made our entire night. Thank you for the wonderful advice Stuart, I look forward to returning and catching up next time!
