Food was terrible. Menu has changed and not for the better. Burger was entirely overcooked.

At the price point and menu selections offered I thought the restaurant would have upscale atmosphere. It’s literally in a hotel lobby type environment. While it is on the second level of the hotel, it’s still in the corridor. There is no noise control so it’s loud, crowded, and non-diners (those staying there) are walking through. The food and service were excellent, but a divider is needed to separate the space from the hotel. Overall it’s overpriced casual fair. Next time I will opt to eat off property.

Our server Jenna was great. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and attentive throughout our meal.
My daughter had the salmon and I had the ribeye, both were excellent!!! Very ample servings.
We would dine here again.

$ 9.00 corkage fee for their own Biltmore wine seems a bit over the top. This fee is for pass holders and wine members as well as any guests.
Village social also serves their glass of wine in the small glasses unlike Cedricks and The Bistro. They claim they follow the standards the same for all restaurants on the property. The manager need to go have a glass of wine at the other restaurants on site.
As I regular -weekly customer I feel this is a reason “not to have a glass of wine with them” or “bring a bottle of your own.” Learn to like water with dinner

This restaurant is wonderful. Stephanie took great care of us. The appetizers were amazing. The fried brussels sprouts were the best I’ve ever had! I would imagine you cannot go wrong with an entrée as we all loved the salmon, the pot roast and the pork chop.

If you enjoy screaming children, sticky tables, inedible food and inefficient waitstaff this is the place for you! We are staying in a lovely suite at the Inn at Biltmore. Everything so far has been lovely, that is until we made the mistake of trying Village Social. Do not waste your money!! This is the weak link in the Biltmore chain. It was disgusting! Scramming toddlers, millennial parents with no idea how to. control their children, sticky tables from these children that I guess the wait staff hasn’t the ability to clean properly. The food was awful! We made our reservation three months ago when we booked our whole Biltmore package. When we arrived on time they did not have a table for us. We stood by the front door and waited more than 15 minutes. Why bother with a reservation!? The host acted like he was doing us a favor to seat us!! It was an awful experience and I hope you will heed this warning and never go there! Biltmore, you are a class act, get rid of this horrible place. A stain on your beautiful place!

Nicely spaced seating. Fast, efficient, & friendly service. The menu was well rounded with enough variety for a diverse dining party. The food preparation was EXCELLENT, especially the PEI Mussels. The shrimp & grits offered an interesting & delicious spin on a Southern classic. I thought it fabulous but It may be too much for those who dislike spicey, slightly hot dishes. The jerk shrimp Caribbean Tacos are highly recommended too. Wonderful presentation. And of course the Ice Cream is always a delight.
Diners should enjoy this menu and the diverse wine/beverage selection.

The food and service were very good. One thing had me puzzled, though. When I made the reservation I was asked if we were celebrating anything, so I put anniversary. It was our 50th! Other than the wait staff wishing us Happy Anniversary, nothing special happened. Why even bother asking?

I’d never been to the Biltmore Estate before, so this was not only my first time at this particular restaurant, but at the grounds at all! Let me start by saying the food was delicious and fresh, our server was incredibly friendly and kind (I’d lost my voice so she was exceptionally patient with me), and the ambiance was really charming. I had the crab bisque and a salad, and my boyfriend had the burger, all of which was made with local produce where possible. Delicious!

I will warn any potential Biltmore newbies though— it’s VERY easy to get lost trying to find your way around! The Biltmore House is easily over an hour with the self-guided tour, and Village Social is over in the Antler Hill town area. They’re about 20-30 minutes apart by car, and there’s no shuttle between these locations. The walk from the parking lot to the actual restaurant was about 5-10 minutes depending on your mobility.

All in all, would definitely visit again!

Had a delicious lunch and the service was outstanding! Our waiter, Sam, was knowledgeable and attentive, and very friendly. We had the mussels which were excellent, chicken salad and the tacos. Oh, and the she-crab soup was so good we almost licked the bowl! Very fun lunch before we toured the amazing Biltmore House. This restaurant really added to our day!!

We were there for my wife’s birthday. The server took forever to come and then we had to wait an extremely long time to come check on us and ask if wanted a dessert menu. Then She took another long length of time to come back. We then declined dessert and decided to go elsewhere.
A different server brought us our ticket and we never saw our original server again.

Also they never brought any bread to the table which we would have asked for if the server came back.

The perfect closure to a day we’ll spent at Biltmore. The hamburgers, with Estate raised beef are perfection. Out Triple Berry Mousse dessert was exquisite! Service was perfection! Wish we could return without a pass to visit the castle!!

Our overall stay at the Biltmore was wonderful but the service we received at the Village Social was very disappointing. It started with our server not allowing me to order my teenage son the chicken fingers from the kids menu. I understand this is the policy but my son has eating issues and there was nothing else on the menu he would eat. Then once our food came out the server did not return to check on us for about 30 min. I had to flag down another server to bring us an item we did not receive that was ordered. Also the soft drinks that were ordered were never refilled. Then when it was time for the check I had to ask our server twice for her to bring it to us. The restaurant was not that busy. If I ever return to the Biltmore I will think twice before I make reservations here again.

We stopped into the Biltmore Estates specifically to dine in one of their wonderful restaurants. The Village Social just happened to have a reservation time that worked into our schedule. We were seated as soon as we arrived (a few minutes early). The wait staff was excellent and the food was very good. She recommended an appetizer we had not tried before. It was a great choice that we were not disappointed with. We will be dining here again soon.
