It was so nice after a day on the estate grounds to spend the evening in the village & dinner @ Village Social was a fabulous end to the evening.

Food was just OK for the price. Dining room was too noisey. Felt more like a diner than an expensive restaurant.

Fish tacos were fresh and tasty. Steak was cooked perfectly. Staff was friendly. It was not crowded when we were there so we we able to change our reservation to an earlier time. Very beautiful inside.

Great spot near the winery to relax with efficient and friendly service. A great spot to relax away from the crowds at the Biltmore house.

We love Village Social. The food is great, service wonderful and accommodating too. We enjoyed dinner here Saturday night with our daughter and her family. The children's menu is very good. We sat at a large dining room table - there were 7 of us. We have eaten at Village Social several times, my husband and I, eating both inside and outside. We'll be return customers.

The Village Social will NOT disappoint! The food is excellent, the atmosphere is great with wonderful music, and the service is terrific! Our server, when I asked, had some great input on our seafood choice. The ribeye was cooked exactly as ordered. My husband and I often split two dishes and the kitchen is so kind as to split them for us. This is our favorite restaurant!

We had the rib eye which was very good. My favorite was the apple pecan cheesecake. Everything at the Biltmore Estates is overpriced food.

Burger was good. However, pork chop was extremely tough but if you could cut it the taste was good. Served on hors douevres type plate which
Made it more difficult to cut and crowded on plate. Expensive 36.00 pork chop and would never order again.
Very disappointed

Food was overcooked...particularly the fresh fish of the day. Service was inattentive at best. Fans were left on in the dining patio, and not only were they very noisy but they were very very windy.

Wrong place for a decent relaxing meal....

Great setting, food was very, very good. A bit pricey, but not terrible. I was surprised that bread does not come with the meal. I find that incredibly chinsey, but overall it was delicious food and a very nice experience. Would definitely go again.

We came for a birthday celebration. We were sat at a table outside in the corner. No umbrella and the marks from a dirty wet rag were visible on the table. I had asked for a "wedge" to keep our table from rocking, but never received it. We used something we had to put under the leg of the table. We were served drinks right away, but it took a very long time to get our appetizer. After that was delivered, we did not see our server for quite a while. He stayed inside most of the time. We wanted to order wine with dinner, but could not do that because we did not see him again until the food was delivered. Did not want to wait for dessert, we had already been there so very long. I anticipated this would be a great dining experience, but no. I may at some point stop in to the bar for a beverage, but won't dine there again.

Fantastic waiter and excellent food. We had a party of 6 and everyone loved everything! We couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience. Oh, and when we had issues getting through the main Biltmore gates they helped us solve it super quick! Highly recommended!

Love the Biltmore and generally enjoy eating here, but had a disappointing evening. Food was ok, ambiance was poor, even with a singer playing. Wasn't worth the cost that evening

Food was delicious. Menu was not huge but a good selection. Service was very good. Enjoyed the bar. Ambiance could be a little better. It feels like a hotel restaurant which it is, but they could make it a little more appealing. Bar area was better that dining area.

Fabulous meal at Village Social. I had the NC Fish (Snapper) and my husband had Frogmore Stew and we shared a side of asparagus. Both dishes were exceptional. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Definitely recommend if you are in the area.

Our party of 7 had dinner on a Monday. Plenty of room. Seated promptly. Waiter was excellent- he anticipated our needs and timing very well. The 7 of us ordered 5 different entrees- when they came there was none of the "who ordered what"- each plate went directly to the right person (delivered by a team so all food came out at the same time). Entrees chosen included salmon, scallops, snapper, chicken, and steak. Everyone was very happy with their choice. Excellent veggies and sauces came along with each entree. All 7 of us agreed it was a place worth revisiting.
I had called on a Saturday for a Monday reservation and was a little worried about noise level (based on background noise on the phone), so I'd try to avoid weekends. When we were there Monday, noise was not an issue.
This is on the Biltmore grounds so - like everything else "Biltmore", it isn't cheap, but the high quality and excellent service were worth it. CAUTION: if you aren't familiar with Biltmore- you must have a paid admission (about $60/person) or an annual pass to get on the grounds to go to the restaurants. Pass holders can bring in guests (in the same car) after 5 for dining without an admission fee.

We had reservations and we were seated very quickly. It was extremely noisy and we could hardly have a conversation.
We ordered the hamburger and when it came the bottom of the bun was soaked. We couldn't eat it.
The waitress reached across us, spilled wine on the table and didn't clean it up and was very short with us.
We were very disappointed in our experience and would not eat there again.

My daughter and I were attending the Amy Grant concert and were really looking forward to trying this restaurant. Unfortunately, our experience left a lot to be desired. My daughter's steak was "ok", but my summer orzo entree was mushy and bland. It was quite inedible. I didn't get a chance to tell our server because she never came back to check on us. My daughter checked in with the front desk staff about my entree and they offered to make me something else, but we had already waited 30 minutes to get our entrees and were ready to leave. The only pleasant thing I can say about this restaurant is they didn't charge me for the food I couldn't eat. Very disappointed and definitely won't be returning. I expected a LOT more from Biltmore!

Excellent service and food - cocktails were different and delicious, crab cake so full of crab vs filler, the raw oysters were amazing, salmon dish was really flavorful, and the desserts were loved by all! I have a dairy intolerance, and they were super helpful and knowledgeable in regards to accommodating that (I even had dessert - that doesn’t happen out often because of the dairy intolerance!). Our server was wonderful, too. One of our best dining experiences at Biltmore.

Everything was perfect. It was a concert night so the restaurant was packed. The noise level was really high and it would be nice if you could install noise absorption panels throughout your establishment. It was very hard to hear the waiter and the other couple we were dining with that evening. All four of us are in our early 50’s and have good hearing but it was quite a distraction for the space to be that noisy. Our waiter was wonderful as was the nice lady that delivered our food. Ty
