We came on a Tuesday afternoon during our day trip to Biltmore and loved everything about it.
I started with the arugula salad, and it was so delicious. My husband got the she crab soup. Then we split a lobster roll and fries.
He also got the Honeymooner cocktail and it was so delicious! I could have stolen all of his drink even though my wine was good.
We will not hesitate to come back on future visits.
Service was excellent!! Rebekah our server was a doll! Food and drinks where great! Really enjoyed the fried green tomatoes!
The starters, fried green tomatoes and Brussels sprouts, were very good, but the steak was tough and overcooked, although the potatoes and asparagus were very good. Our waitress was great and offered to get another meal, but the place was closing, which probably was the reason the steak was poor. Oh well.
Nothing special, which was surprising giving the notion of spectacular service Biltmore advertises and prides itself on. Our waitress disappeared for long durations. The food was good but less than I would expect for the high price. The atmosphere was superb!
Difficult to reserve, service was poor, food was bad and prices were high.
The food was delicious (especially the shrimp and grits!), and the staff was very careful to take my husband's food allergies into consideration, making sure they special made his food accordingly.
The service was too notch and the food was really good. We had fried green tomatoes with lobster salad and then we split the scallops and pasta.
I had a sazarac cocktail and she had a dirty chai cocktail. Both were excellent and lasted us the meal.
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!
Food average, service acceptable, social distancing B
A fun lunch place with interesting pictures of Biltmore history throughout.
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!
Great little place! Food and service was excellent. I recommend it, and will be going back.
Our server was great and the food was great, but I was a little disappointed it wasn’t decorated for Valentine’s Day. Not as romantic as we’d hoped.
It was all good. Server and food was all excellent.
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.
My cousin had his first Biltmore experience. We had lunch first at the Village Social, he had shrimp and grits..LOVED IT! My classic burger was delicious 😋! Always a great experience..staff was wonderful and attentive. Everyone was wearing masks and social distancing. Very nice lunch!
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.
Overall we had a good experience. The best part was our server. She was professional, friendly and made us feel right at home!
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.
The food was delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly. The portions were just right. The Service...I simply cannot say enough good things about our server! She was hands down the BEST we have ever had!! We had our children with us-teens and preteen and the environment was friendly for them as well!!We will he back!!
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
My favorite restaurant on the estate! Looking forward to returning.
Thanksgiving Dinner. The food was outstanding! Traditional thanksgiving turkey, mashed potatoes/gravy, cornbread stuffing, green beans. Excellent. Their breakfast is awesome too!
Thanksgiving was amazing!
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.
We enjoyed our dining experience. Our service was slow. Our server was not as attentive as we would have hoped for.
Over priced (which is expected) but no real breakfast options or a kid menu. Strange for a family resort area.
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.
Only complaint was very loud ! The food was amazing
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.
A very good place for casual dining food and service were also very good noise level was a little excessive
Amazing time KT was fantastic and on the ball about everything :)
