Perfect portions of delicious food and impeccable service (thank you, Laura and Desmond). She-crab soup was delicious (and contained sherry gel, so no need for added sherry unless you are a big sherry fan), flavors of spring was beautiful and delicious. Filet's were generously portioned and perfectly cooked and seasoned. Creative take on creme brûlée for dessert. Overall, pricey, but perhaps the best fine-dining experience in Asheville.

Another outstanding meal at The Dining Room. I took my wife there for a 1st anniversary dinner and we were greeted by a friendly staff, fantastic food, and impeccable service from our wait staff. They always have a wide-ranging selection of seasonal items as well as some things you probably have not eaten but should try. This will not be our last meal here. Always a 5-star experience...

Excellent food and service. Again it's menu is interesting and the dishes are presented beautifully. Wine list could be a little more diversified with also wines at a more reasonable price without reducing the quality. It is always a pleasure.

Beautiful and quiet dining room with a view. I have a mixed review on the food. Loved the carrot soup in demi tase - the highlight of the meal. Appetizers were salty - both the romaine salad and lamb; entrees were sparse on the vegetable sides so the filet looked tiny on the big plate - 3 tiny asparagus tips and 1/4 cup mashed potatoes so that was a bit surprising. Desserts were great. Friendly, talkative waiters and attentive water fillers. Cost was comparative to Ruth Chris but their food was better.

We have dined in many fine places, but The Dining Room at the Inn at Biltmore Estate is one of the very best. Our server was knowledgeable and professional. It was my wife's birthday celebration and the entire staff wished her a happy birthday as they encountered her. The prices are surprisingly affordable and the quality and presentation were superb.

We were celebrating our 7th Anniversary & felt the value we received was very poor. My wife chose 3 courses while I had 5 courses. My meal started off fine thru my cold appetizer but went downhill starting with my hot app ( Charred Octopus) that was 1 small tenacle; this was followed up with one Diver Scallop as an entree & 1 piece of Duck breast as my other entree.
Overall, my food tasted good & so did my wife's dinner. However, the person sitting next to us also had Duck as her entree but received 3 pieces of Duck Breast to my one piece. That person had 3 courses not 5 and paid $30 less for her meal. If I had 3 courses would I still receive 1 scallop?
This is a very nice dinning room with very good service but value received for price paid was very poor. We will not recommend the Dining Room at The Inn & will not be returning the next time we visit Biltmore.

This is our single favorite go-to restaurant in Asheville for special occasions. (It is actually the only white tablecloth restaurant in the area.) Every aspect of dining is exceptional. Pricey but worth it. We are locals, dine out frequently, and this is truly an exceptional dining experience in the area.

Having been a passholder for several years and a diner at this restaurant on several past occassions, we were disappointed in this visit. Despite indicating on the initial reservation request, and again in the verbal confirmation two days before, that we wished a window/view seat and that this was a special occassion with two of the party being hotel guests and two being long term pass holders, we were initially given a middle of the room table. Three tables had been seated at windows just before our arrival and none had made advance requests. The service was good but spaced and not as attentive as on prior occassions. The first courses were very good in all four cases, but the duck was overly salty, and its plating unappealing. We all laughed at the attempt to make five sad little wilted carrot ends look elegant. The chocolate desert was way too rich and none of us was able to eat more than a 1/3 of the serving. All of us at this table enjoy fine dining and do so globally and frequently each year. This was not up to prior standards. Most attentive hotels and good restaurants know who their dinner are and use every bit of information at their finger tips to make the evening special. This was more akin to a high priced tourist attraction. Hopefully, not the new standard

Impeccable service, wonderful atmosphere. Food was excellent, except the filet mignon was overcooked. My husband said his salmon was the best he had ever had. Lovely presentation of the dishes. The three course option left us well satisfied. Very enjoyable date night.

This entire dining experience was one of the most delightful we have ever had. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and the Happy Birthday written on her dessert plate was a very special touch. The ambiance and cuisine was excellent as was the wait staff but our waiter, Hank, was beyond excellent...he was 6 stars!! It was a lovely evening.

My husband and I have eaten in many fine restaurants in many cities. I would have to rate our experience at The Biltmore Inn as one of the best. It was a true fine dining experience in every sense---from the service, to the wine, to the beautiful setting, and the incredibly prepared food. I've never eaten a filet that was as delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary meal and can't wait to return.

The atmosphere was lovely and the service very good, but neither my husband nor I were blown away by the food. The portions were fairly small, particularly the supporting sides.

At times the food was overshadowed by the presentation. For example, we both chose crème brûlée as dessert. Turns out it consisted of a narrow strip of (yummy) crème brûlée set atop a rather tasteless cookie and ringed with various decorative flourishes. We would have preferred the standard ramekin filled with crème and a crackling caramelized sugar top.
