    Appetizer: the beet dish was actually great. Best part of the meal was the beets- lol. Entrees: for the price, I was expecting great quality meat that was cooked professionally. Just didn’t happen. Ribeye had some very hard and very chewy pieces, it was not a tender cut typical for a good ribeye. Red snapper was overcooked and very overseasoned and too salty. Dessert: blood orange tart was absolutely horrible. The presentation was poor and the consistency was soupy and runny. It was a very boring dish. Was the worst dessert I’ve ever had actually. Drinks: overall great. The sangria was advertised to have fruit in it. It did not. Only a couple of small cranberries. Service: waitress was nice and attentive. So, $200 meal for 2- I would hope for a great high quality experience, but was very disappointed.

    Service was very slow. Drinks took way too long to be served. We got appetizers before our first drink. Main course was very late. The staff recognized the problem and comp the desert for each couple. Ok but not up to the Biltmore standards. Not likely to go back to this restaurant.

    Casual dining. Very busy. Didn’t enjoy this restaurant as the other restaurants on the property. The trout dip was great but the portion was rather on the smaller size. The shrimp and grits were good. I don’t think the other items were as tasty as other patrons ordered other items but didn’t really seem to enjoy it finish. Pricing was lot for what you received. It should be a little less at this establishment since it is casual dining and the pass through environment to the village inn—- $18 for a regular martini and 29 for an old fashioned at this restaurant is over the top and not worth it. Positives- we did get to see the football game. We will pass next time or maybe sit at the bar for beer. We wanted like it. We still love the estate property.

    The food was fantastic, but the desserts were over the top! We had the Cranberry Cheesecake and the Espresso Sponge cake. And while the hint of orange in the whipped cream on top of the cheesecake was decadent, the melt in your mouth texture of the sponge cake was DIVINE!

    Why do they put the OpenTable customers in the worst seating place they possibly could put us they put me right next to the door. It was 30° outside. My second alternative was going to a high top in the bar which is more or less the same as not having a reservation that has to change I’m either not going to go to the restaurant again or I’m not gonna use OpenTable but somethings hast to change. This is not the first restaurant that’s done it it’s been a lot of them lately and I don’t see the value in OpenTable if I’m not having a decent meal in decent location of the restaurant. I’m a really good chef. I can eat at home. Don’t disrespect the customer they will not coming back. And for this restaurant, I’m a passholder also. My waitress was the most efficient waitress I’ve had in a while. I hope she has a great New Year’s

    We bought into the tourist trap of eating on the Biltmore Estate while visiting. Unfortunately, we were not overwhelmed by our over $125 meal. I had both of the fish dishes because the collards accompanying the mountain trout included pork which was not listed. When I informed the waiter that I didn't eat pork he replied that collards are always cooked with pork. I responded that the collards I cook are not. He later apologized and said that they should make a notation on the menu. He returned with the snapper dish but I waited and waited and waited to receive silverware. Hubby had the soup and roasted chicken entree. Now about the taste, there was not much. The trout was fresh but bland. The snapper was so rubbery that I had to use my knife/fork to saw back and forth. I told my husband that it was fish cooked like a steak that tasted like chicken. I did not taste the cajun spices or any seasoning. Maybe they rushed it getting out to me but it was tasteless as were the side grits. I'll tell you what was delicious... the smoked trout dip with crackers. If I returned, I would simply order the dip and maybe chicken wings. Lastly, it is attached to the hotel so there are lots of families with kids.

    The Village Social for dinner was great. For some reason the service was very slow during our entire visit. The only time we didn’t wait more than 10 minutes for drink or food orders were our last day. Our waitress, Christina, was great. We had breakfast each morning as part of our package. Breakfast is VERY good! The homemade biscuits and pancakes are AMAZING! The turkey bacon, on the other hand, was the absolute worst bacon I’ve ever eaten. But there were more choices. Overall, I would say eat breakfast, lunch, & dinner there, just don’t expect too much at lunch and dinner.

    We've been to the Biltmore many times being annual passholders. We have eaten in every venue on the estate. We have never had a bad experience in any of them The Village Social is very casual and laid back. The food is excellent. The service is professional and cordial. There is nothing negative I can say as I have only praise for the hard work the staff does to make our dining experience pleasurable.

    The wait staff and other folks were amazing and the atmosphere was lovely. The salad and dessert were delicious. I was surprised that the $48 ribeye I got was chewy and had a lot of gristle. I expected it to be tender. It took us longer than expected to find the Biltmore Village Social as there wasn’t adequate signage and the gps took us in every direction but the right one. I love the mission and vision of the Biltmore and am giving this feedback to help improve people’s experience when they visit so it can be even more successful. Thank you!

    Appetizer & entrees delish. Dessert- one of us ordered cranberry cheesecake. Yuck. Afterwards- server (Tabitha?) said it was an odd consistency & that people either love it or hate it. Wish she would have told us that up front. Brownie was wonderful. Service on drinks including non-bar drinks very slow. Chalk it up to the Christmas season.
