Village Social-Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
This was my third time eating here. The waitress was great but that’s the best thing I can say. The food is way over-priced compared to the other restaurants on the estate. The ambiance is lacking. Don’t bother even making a reservation because you will still have to wait at least thirty minutes to be seated at the bar or community table instead of what you reserved. Wrong place for a birthday dinner. It was so loud I couldn’t even hear my daughter speak.
Our experience here started off very disjunctive because of the server, SUMMER - others had to fill in for her because she is too intrusive and talkative. However because of Macenzie, a young server/asst to SUMMER things went well. The food was wonderful. My husband had the grilled oysters and I, the on the raw half shell oysters - loved both. We both had the Frogmere Stew - a delicious broth with lobster tail, clams and shrimp . Avoid being served by SUMMER
We visit Biltmore Estate often. We are Passholders as well as Wine Club members. The server was a little overly friendly in the beginning but rushed through taking our order. When my meal came out it was not cooked how I had requested and she immediately said maybe next time I should order it differently.
Not used to receiving this kind of service there.
We dined at the Village Social for Valentine’s Day. It was good, but not memorable. I had the chicken and there were only 4 little pieces of potato on my plate with a crispy piece of ham on top. For $24, the portion was very small. My husband had the $18 cheeseburger. Yes, it was $18. The fries were really good, and the burger was tasty. But for $18? We were expecting a lot more. The service was beyond slow. We were never offered water or checked on after our food was brought to us. The dining room is in what seems to be a hotel lobby which is a very unusual set up. For these prices, Biltmore needs to offer more options on the menu.
We had a truly horrible experience at the restaurant. My brother-in-law ordered a pork chop but they did not have a sharp knife to cut it with. Finally, the manager brought out a kitchen knife. My wife and I ordered a sea food dish that had a portion of a small lobster tail, but it was almost impossible to dig the meat out of the shell. We ended up scraping it out with our fingers. Finally, service was poor dhri g a not very busy time. They brought the main course before we were done with our salads and the waitress was so slow in bringing a second glass of wine that I gave up on it. I complained to the manager and he did not charge us for the meal. None the less, the evening was ruined. Stay away from this place!
My wife and I spent the day at Biltmore and then had dinner here before leaving the grounds. The meal was outstanding! The salmon and lump crab risotto was the best meal I've tasted lately. The burger and grilled oysters were also excellent. We will definitely make a point to came back when in Asheville the nest time.
Our server was wonderful and easily took care of our group of 8 adults. I had the she crab bisque with grilled bread and was SO impressed - the flavor was perfect and the grilled bread was such a great accompaniment, I'm not sure I'll be able to have crab bisque without it anymore! I also had the chicken salad sandwich with roasted red peppers on the croissant bun and absolutely loved it. I thought about it later in the day, it was that good! The Village Social had a delightful menu with a casual flair and it was perfect for the chilly day we were experiencing. Thanks for a delicious meal!
My wife and I went for a special occasion while visiting the Biltmore at Christmas. We had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We enjoyed the live music and the overall feel of the venue. Our waitress was very attentive and her service was excellent. The food came out promptly and was delicious. The prosciutto wrapped scallops are a must have along with the triple chocolate mousse. The restaurant is a bit pricey but you leave satisfyingly full and there are still options for even those on a budget.
Tonya was our server, and she made this an especially enjoyable meal. She was engaging and on top of things, even seeing to it that an entree was properly split for us. Our table for 2, unfortunately, was in a corner which is blocked in by dinners at adjacent tables for 2. This made it awkward to serve and pick up. Again, ask for Tonya and she'll see to it it's good evening.
I felt that our food was overpriced for what we got. To be a restaurant on the grounds of the Biltmore I was expecting a lot. We are from Charleston, SC where the restaurant scene is killer. This place just didn't live up to our standards. The food was okay, but I wish we had gone somewhere else for what we paid here. The fried brussels and biscuits were awesome though!
Very disappointed. Pricey for quality and quantity of food. The room just looked like a restaurant off of a hotel lobby. The Biltmore website advertises this place as if it is a stand alone restaurant in Antler Village, but that is not the case. The server acted as if she could care less that we were there. She recited the beer list so quickly that we had no clue what the beers were. She didn’t really seem to know anything about the food.
We had a great meal at Village Social. We shared a few appetizers and plates, and everything was delicious! Our waitress was great about coming by often to check on us, and all the staff were very polite and friendly the entire time. Dessert was amazing and very different! We'd definitely like to come back more often and eat whenever we visit Biltmore.
My family thoroughly enjoyed both our dinner and our breakfast at the Village Social. The Frogmore Stew and she-crab soup were amazing as were the mule cocktail and desserts. The next morning we were spoiled once again with pesto scrambled eggs with generous amounts of crabmeat while my daughter loved the blueberry pancakes. Highly recommend!
This is our 2nd visit this year to the Biltmore Estate. Village Social was just as delicious as the first visit. Breakfast and dinner were tasty and filling each time. The salmon was cooked to perfectly medium and my $18 burger was just as tasty. Be prepared to spend just a lil more but its the perfect wrap up for afull day at the Estate.
