Thanksgiving Dinner. The food was outstanding! Traditional thanksgiving turkey, mashed potatoes/gravy, cornbread stuffing, green beans. Excellent. Their breakfast is awesome too!

We were there for Thanksgiving dinner. We had a long wait for service, but once they figured out who had our table, service improved. Turkey was just ok, salty and a little dry. Mashed potatoes and green beans were good. Stuffing was terrible. It would be great to have had a better dinner on Thanksgiving, but it was just ok.

We enjoyed our dining experience. Our service was slow. Our server was not as attentive as we would have hoped for.

Over priced (which is expected) but no real breakfast options or a kid menu. Strange for a family resort area.

The menu is extremely limited. They only offered one steak which was a Ribeye, which surprised me since that’s a very specific steak.

Service was ok, drinks were often empty and then had to ask for refills. Food was good but not great.

I think it would be great for lunch, but look elsewhere if you’re wanting a nice dinner.

We had a reservation so we were seated quickly. The menu was limited for someone who has allergies and can’t eat red meat, seafood or pork, but I chose a Caesar salad and chicken with ranch dressing instead of caesar dressing - the dressing was homemade and a bit of an unusually heavy taste but good. My friend had the shrimp & grits with the sauce on the side - the sauce was tasty and a good compliment for the cheesy grits.
The Brussel sprouts are delicious - the malt vinaigrette gave the salty Parmesan Brussel sprouts a bit of a tangy taste. We wished we’d ordered 2 orders instead of the herb fries. The mint chocolate chip cookie was super delicious - warm and gooey chocolate heaven on a plate. The vanilla ice cream tasted like vanilla cream instead of ice milk like we experienced at Cedric’s Tavern.
Overall, the staff was friendly and the food came out quick and hot. Highly recommend.

We made advanced reservations for this restaurant. We ate outside and that was nice. Our waitress was attentive as well. The food we had was good but a little pricey. We did expect this since it was the Biltmore. My only issue is there was no kids menu so you do end up paying $14 for chicken tenders and fries that my child didn’t even enjoy. They were dry and he didn’t like the seasonings.

Overall it was a great experience. I had the rib eye and my wife has cheeseburger. The one downside was that I ordered the sangria, noticing that it was a little pricey. I thought that since it was Biltmore I would slurge. I was expecting it in a wine glass and it came to them table in a champagne glass. Too expensive for the amount.

The Village Social at Biltmore Estate was a great experience. I highly recommend making a reservation to avoid a long wait. Great portion sizes and flavor, with excellent recommendations from the staff. All of the staff were pleasant and friendly, making it an enjoyable end to the weekend.

We had the most wonderful dinner at Village Social. We stopped in earlier in the day to let them know we would be a few minutes late and the host was extremely accommodating and pushed our reservation back 15 minutes. Then our waiter, Daniel, was absolutely wonderful. My husband raved about his cocktail and Daniel brought out the recipe for him. He also gave us local recommendations of where to watch a few games that evening. We were on our honeymoon and Daniel brought out a special dessert just for us! The entire experience was so wonderful and really made our trip to the Biltmore even better.

Very troubling. Poor enforcement of mask wearing and social distancing.
15+ people singing around a table without masks.

Food was exceptional and reasonable priced. Menu has been scaled back because of the pandemic, but everything we ordered was thoughtfully prepared. The crab cake is largely crab—no fillers—and tasted very fresh. Don’t miss the house made chips and beer battered Brussels sprouts! I preferred ranch dressing with the sprouts, requested and promptly provided. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. Nice experience!

The appetizers and dessert were delicious, but both of our entrees were overcooked. We didn’t complain because it wasn’t that huge of a deal, but that’s why we gave it four stars.

Absolute sham! This restaurant should NOT be on open table for the general public to make reservations. This is inside the Biltmore grounds so they charge by the person to enter the gate just to drive to the restaurant. We spent $250 to enter at 5pm to go have a $200+ subpar dinner (grits were gross and the desert was horrible). It's also not in the village - it's directly behind the hotel. So, for someone who is disabled it's horrific to get to.

The meal & the service were outstanding. My steak was cooked perfectly & the brussel sprouts were delicious. The wine & beer lists were good but my key lime martini was a highlight of the meal. Highly recommend!!! I gave a 3 star for ambiance because the retaurant opens up in to the hotel lobby & I felt like we were right on top of neighboring tables. Overall, a great experience & will return.
