    Our server Alex made the meal SO enjoyable! She was friendly, helpful and laughing with us. It is incredibly obvious she loves her job and the Biltmore property. Great people like Alex will keep us coming back again and again!

    The food was good but not terrific. The service was also good but not great. The ambience was a little generic. If my wife and I spend $100 on a meal in Asheville we expect to eat really delicious food in a great atmosphere with cool people preparing and serving it. The waitress was extremely busy and rather impersonal. The $10 brownie for dessert was not nearly as good as my grandmothers and the decor looked like it was purchased at Target. We had an enjoyable experience but for the money we could have done much better elsewhere. I can think of dozens of other restaurants in Asheville where the experience would have been far superior for half the cost. Biltmore can and should do better.

    The menu is relatively limited and not really geared toward juveniles overall. They try and put their own take on food which is unnecessary. For example, their chicken salad has corn in it rather than a traditional cranberry or grape. It wasnt bad, just average. The food is very expensive overall for what you get as well as the quality of items. It isnt Outback but it isnt a high end restaurant either which is what you are paying. It is at an attraction so like Disney so I expected to pay high prices.

    Loved the shrimp tacos, and our waitress was very attentive. She helped us clean up a massive water spill from our 3 year old quickly and made me feel much better about it. We've also enjoyed the ease of this spot for breakfast at the hotel!

    Tonya is the best waitress! I try to sit at her station whenever I come. She’s very attentive but not overly, and is so friendly and pleasant. The food is always delicious, this is my favorite restaurant on the estate. The vegan bowls and cocktails are divine 💕

    We have always been huge fans of the Biltmore but it is really going downhill especially for locals. We went to the Village Social, having been there many times before. There was a problem with the exhaust fan in the kitchen so then menu was mostly sandwiches, salads and pan made entrees. There were no burgers. The food was fair as was the service. Very, very disappointing. We told the waiter that we weren't happy with one of the entrees, which we had two of and were $35 each. He said, sorry to hear it but they didn't do anything about it. Nobody even came over to see why they weren't good. We don't go to the Bistro anymore as our last few experiences there weren't good. Looks like it's time to cross the Village Social off the list too. I'm really hoping that the Biltmore starts to realize they have an issue soon.

    We had some really good food here…the shrimp and grits and the pot roast in particular, but the prices…way to high for what’s supposed to be a mid-range restaurant. Be prepared…it was $128 (without tip) for 2 of us with a starter, entree and 2 cocktails. Breakfast was $50 and the food for breakfast could be described as limited and adequate. Nothing great.

    Very disappointed. We had eaten in this restaurant for breakfast, which was fine. Dinner was loud, and the waiter certainly had too many tables. Food was just ok. the waiter even brought us the check from the table behind us. Not as good an experience as the other restaurant next door, the Bistro...

    The menu is limited, but the service is good and the food ok. My wife had a problem with an overcooked burger, but they took it back and met her specifications - she said it was delicious. They took 20% off the check so it was a fair deal I had the shrimp tacos. They were good.

    Ate outside with warm weather moderated by umbrellas and fans. Both had salads and added crab cakes/salmon which were both excellent. SheCrab bisque is worth the price also. Only negative was the draft beer was not available for some equipment reason. Our wait person was wonderful-unfortunately did not get her name.

    The Village social always has great food and great service. They cater well to my dietary restrictions and always have something new and yummy on the menu. They always manage to have a vegan gluten-free dessert on the menu as well which makes me a very happy customer. I have come to know Tonya over the last few years and it’s always a pleasure to be served by her. Village Social never disappoints!

    Make your dinner reservations early, with limited options and available days - plan well ahead. My wife's salmon was excellent, my veggie quinoa bowl was good but a bit pricey. The restaurant serves a number of different types of diners of all ages so the menu and atmosphere is quite eclectic.

    The food here was as good as the more expensive Bistro next door. The service was great. It is a good place for families or a relaxed dinner. It opens directly to floors of the hotel, so it's less intimate and more noisy. Weekday early dinner would have been no problem with no reservation, although we had one. Recommend the pot roast and salmon. Yum! Great desserts, too.

    We had a great dinner on the patio. Service was excellent, location is convenient and food was delicious. There are limited vegetarian options. The beyond burger was fantastic. The vegan bowl was good, but way over priced. $26 for a scoop of quinoa with a few veggies was way over priced. Would recommend the patio after a nice long bike ride!

    Brought my husband here for Father's Day. Great service. Menu is not extensive but there is something for everyone. My kids even found something they liked. The food was really well done (Mommy this pot roast tastes like yours but better-ha!) We loved the pickles and cheese appetizer, pot roast, and burger.

    The food was pretty good and Daphne was great. Sooooooo we were here for our 34th anniversary and made reservations in advance. This was the only option we had for this date, every other restaurant was full- supposedly. First of all the Bistro next door had soooooooo many open tables we were shocked!!!! They clearly had openings. When we showed up at our time at the Social, we were made to wait even though the restaurant was nearly empty. We were so dissappointed in the limited menu. While pot roast was a meat option it was literally the only meat option. After wine tasting and a full day at the home- we needed protein and having a fish/shellfish allergy there wasn't much for me to eat. It was all a bit dissappointing for our 34th anniversary.
