My husband and I enjoyed our dining experience at the Village Social. The atmosphere, service and food were excellent. Our server Tonya was delightful and accommodating to our special needs. We will return and recommend to our visiting friends and family.

We were a party of 6. Four out of six didn’t care for their meal. Specifically my 87 year old mother told the waitress she didn’t like her meal of shrimp and grits. Most of it was uneaten. The waitress neither offered to comp or substitute the item.

Arrived at dinner time so decided to eat at the Village Inn at the Biltmore Estate. There are several options but the menu at Village Social looked really good. Food and service were exceptional. Food and wine was very expensive but we throughly enjoyed our meal.

Nice, casual date night spot. They have decent selection of wine and food options, would have liked to see a few more local wines to try but would recommend the cheese plate to start with. Great spot for a nice night out in Asheville

This was a very nice restaurant overall!! Ambience not so much. The service was great. Appetizers delicious! I had the Black Grouper special which was delicious but 3 others had the chicken and puff pastry said chicken was dry. I had asked for a table not in a noisy area which they did accommodate us which was really appreciated. I'd recommend it. If your not looking for ambience this is a great place.

Friend Green Tomatoes, Shrimp Cocktail, and Crab Bisque were all great. I didn’t enjoy the Frogmore Stew. Service was great. We will return.

Food was fantastic as was the service. My only problem was finishing it. Everything I had just said at Antler Hill Village. We didn’t realize that meant inside of the Inn. Now that I know I’m sure we’ll be back the next time we visit.

First time out since COVID. The restaurant layout was laid out with lots of space between tables. Social was able to accommodate and modify the fish entree to meet my husband’s low sodium restrictions and yet make a flavor-full meal.

The dessert was fun and enough for two.

We were there to celebrate my friend's birthday. We did make reservations, which I strongly suggest. Our waitress was amazing - checking on us frequently but not overbearing. We declined dessert, but she brought a birthday celebration plate of fruit and a couple truffles. The food was delicious. The Beer Battered Brussel Sprouts were amazing, and I'm not really a fan of Brussel sprouts. We shared the Crab Cake Sandwich with a side of Cauliflower Ginger Slaw. Our waitress split the sandwiches on two different plates - a really nice addition. The cocktails were tasty - Tequila Mockingbird and Barrel Aged Manhattan.
Highly recommended for the delicious food and ambience.

We arrived 15 minutes early, and were told our table would not ready for about 20 minutes. After waiting 35 minutes, I went back to the desk. I was chided for being late. They simply forgot us.

The place is so loud, conversation is impossible.

Our server, Rebekah, was exceptional...thank you! Food came as ordered and was brought out fairly quickly in spite of a fairly busy lunch crowd. Food was pretty good...a bit on the pricey side, but that's part of the Biltmore experience I guess.

Conveniently located next to the wine shop, we enjoyed a tasting before lunch. It was a cool day and the She Crab Bisque was very good. The crab cake sandwich was okay but could have used more flavor. The staff was delightful and informing. We enjoyed our experience and would return.

Service was bad. We were seated right away but a waitress did not come by for at least 10 minutes after we sat down. Drink order took longer than normal to be delivered. Ordered she crab soup that was thick and coagulated. Burrata was dried out. Saffron orzo was bland. Cheesecake was terrible. No flavor.

Our service was not good and it seemed they were way understaffed. Host that seated me got me very excited about the scallops pasta dish and said I should order right away as sometimes they run out. Our server took at least 10 minutes to show up at our table and promptly told us they were out of scallops. Everything from there seemed downhill. Grilled oysters were the highlight of our food. She crab bisque was so thick it was almost like a gravy (We lived in Charleston for 18 years so we know what it should taste and look like!) My fish had more skin than fish and the "lemon buerre blanc" had no flavor at all. What was supposed to be "herb potatoes" had no herbs and I had to ask for a salt shaker. There was one medium sized whole potato with a little crust on it and a couple of "potato skins". For $38 I was truly disappointed. Only ate about 1/3 of it and all server asked was if I wanted a box, which I declined. Other entree was my husband's "Chef's Estate Cut", which was just okay. We turned down dessert based on experience to that point. The shining star of the evening was my husband's cocktail expertly made by bartender Eric - something called "George's Smoked Old Fashioned"! I have never written a review like this and I'm sad to say I will not return here or recommend to friends.

Took my wife there for her birthday and had a great time. The young lady that took care of us (she’s working on her Master Degree in Social Work), was fantastic, pleasant, professional, and took time just to socialize with us. There was a manager on duty that was like the best manager I’ve seen in ages, she was everywhere, assisting her staff and the customers and was as nice as anyone I’ve ever met. The food, believe it or not, topped the level of service we received, I mean the flavor was outrageously good and the food was cooked and prepared to perfection, I plan on visiting again next month with my daughters...
