We had really hi expectations and in the end none of them were met. It was our first visit to the Biltmore and the dining room. The service was just OK. We each had a tomato salad that was composed of stale and mealy tomatoes. I had the filet for an entrée first it took over 30 minutes to get served and then it was over cooked. They brought another it was cooked to the right temperature but I believe they must have done it in the microwave it certainly had that taste. Then greens under the filet were very good. Desert was the coconut rice pudding. It was certainly not what I expected more of a hockey puck of dehydrate rice something with smuckers type jelly on top. This was our 18th anniversary celebration so we were more than a little disappointed. The vibe in the restaurant is kind of a dated feel not old enough to be cool and not new enough to be either.

We were ready to pack up and leave the Biltmore as we love good food and service and that was key to our weekend. Fortunately we tried the café at the house and it was fabulous and then dined at the bistro and it was another fantastic experience. In my view the dining room is over priced and overrated you will be much happier at any of the other establishments on the property.

Service was absolutely great! Both my husband and I enjoyed our meal very much. Lovely view until sunset. I had a lamb dish and husband had pork tenderloin. Both meals were prepared well and plating was lovely. I had rather high expectations and was not disappointed. Would eat there again if in the area.

We were celebrating our 20th anniversary at Biltmore Estate and wanted to experience the fine dining that was available. The food was remarkable and the service was phenomenal. Brian and Chris made sure that all of our questions were answered and that our celebratory dinner was something to remember! I HIGHLY recommend The Dining Room!!!

Food, wine, and service were all excellent—we had an enjoyable relaxed night—with very attentive and accommodating service. The night was a bit spoiled at the very end when the front desk refused to validate our valet parking ( the only parking we saw upon arrival)—after dropping $650+ on dinner it just seemed very petty and spoiled our mood on an otherwise pleasant experience

The restaurant is located inside the Inn on the beautiful Biltmore Estate. The restaurant has great views of the Estate but we didn’t get to enjoy those because we were seated in a tucked away corner across from a serving station. The food was extremely disappointing. We ordered from the 3 course meal selection but everything from the appetizer, entree, and dessert was disappointing. I would recommend visitors to go to some of the other restaurants on the Estate which are much better.

Service was attentive and friendly. Food was underwhelming. Seasoning was either too little or too much. Much of the meal was reminiscent of microwaved leftovers.

It was a lovely room, with the greatest staff, so I feel bad dissing them! But, the food just didn't live up to the vibe they were going for. Way too pricey for the quality and variety of choice.

It was a peaceful dining experience. The service was excellent, and the food quite good. (The custard desert was the only part of the meal that did not meet my expectation. I think it was the solid frozen 'disc' of the custard that was not very appealing.)

The meal was paced well and the three course menu just the right amount of food. The wine pairings provided several unique wines that were surprisingly perfect with each course. Our anniversary dinner was definitely a highlight of our Biltmore trip.

The service was superb and welcoming. Our server took the time to discuss options for each course and to recommend the perfect wine pairing. Each course was a perfectly prepared, taking mostly local ingredients and creating appetizer, entree, and desert that were each a delight to the eye and the palate. We were not rushed but neither did we have to wait for each course. From the time we were seated to the time we left, we were treated as long-time guests and warmly welcomed.

View and ambiance was great but the steaks first were not cooked as ordered and the second steaks they brought out were cooked better but had absolutely no flavor. Overpriced for what we received!!! Disappointing experience for my wife’s special birthday celebration!!!

The food was amazing and special.

The services was decent. The waiter was nervous acting.

BIG PROBLEM: The hostess was rude. Made us wait for the absolutely worse table in the restaurant; even though we had reservations, arrived early and she acknowledged we were celebrating an anniversary. There were plenty of empty table is the restaurant for both two and four tops.

It was a disappointing way to start at big celebration. We did eventually get a better table. The hostess reason for the bad table; “we are filling up!” The restaurant never fill up. I guess the guess that might come are more important than those present.

My meal here was wonderful. The view and room were fabulous, the service folks kind and knowledgable. The chef, devoted and artistic. The herb-crusted salmon was lovely, done to perfection and beautifully presented. The appetizer and dessert were also creative and complex flavors. A lovely experience for a special occasion or a treat while on vacation.

The Dining Room is an incredible and lovely experience. BUT, the waiter made our visit memorable. We've had the best waiter ever, Hank. He is very attentive focused an makes sure all your needs are met. As always, He went above and beyond this past weekend even though he wasn't our waiter at our last meal. We requested him but he already had a large party, but he still made our visit very special and most memorable. I have never had a better waiter at any dining experience before at any dining experience.
