Our main complaint was that it was very cold which meant that we were uncomfortable and the food cooled off quickly. The shrimp and grits were very good!

Village Social is a run-of-the-mill hotel gastropub. It excels at being on Biltmore property and is a much better experience than trying to eat at the Carriage House tourist cafés. Good bar.

The mussels were amazing! Monkfish was the catch of the day and was excellent. Substitutions for dietary restrictions were not any issue.

We were here for Valentine’s Day. The food was amazing. Would highly recommend. The service was also phenomenal. Would definitely recommend for a romantic/nice dinner. The room is quite a bit open and a little louder than expected.

The service and atmosphere was amazing. The food was good and tasty. We had dinner twice the weekend we stayed at the Biltmore. The more expensive items were underwhelming, the cheaper items were the best. Try the crusted chicken or shrimp & grits these dishes were perfect. The pot roast and lobster was an odd combination, the lobster prices were different. Really they would have done better setting a lobster tall on top of the pot roast. The ribeye was a large piece of meat, but way too fatty even for ribeye. Hope this helps and Bon Appétit!

The food and cocktails were excellent. As was our waitress MK. My only complaint was the noise level with one little loud boy standing on his chair and crying.

The service was outstanding! The Valentines Day dinner for two was a little heavy on the fat/carb side. Scallops were excellent and steak well prepared. Lobster Mac/cheese pn the heavy side. We would have preferred a salad or vegetable if a substitute had been available. Also choice of appetizer was VERY limited! BUT WHAT MADE THE EXPERIENCE OUTSTANDING WAS THE SERVICE!

My daughter and I were there for Valentine’s Day. The food and the service was exceptional. The ambiance / atmosphere is ok. We wanted to go to the Bistro for some reason it has been closed and has yet to re-open.

Beautiful setting outside on the rare warm day. Tables were spaced 20 feet apart. Perfect timely service. Food very tasty and nicely presented. Only disappointment was one of the two bowls of soup was hot and the other barely warm. Otherwise a lovely lunch.

We had a reservation but we were first told we had to wait for low table. We were also told if we wanted a low table we had to put it in our reservation. Who was to know? The food was good but not spectacular. Had 2 pork chop orders - 1 was nice and tender but the other one was dry. Limited children's menu - verbal not written. Hambuger was good and cooked to specification. Finally had pecan crusted chicken - some parts just crust but most parts chicken was cooked well. Brownie dessert was shared and loved by all. Just only vanilla ice cream.

Shrimp and grits were amazing. Service was perfect and nice drink choices. Wine is overpriced considering it comes from 10ft away where you can buy it for half the price

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.

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.

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.
