Me and my fiance go to the Biltmore almost everyday and usually go to either cedrick or bistro. We wanted to try village social. The food didn't taste good enough for the money. Between the 3 restaurants bistro, social and cedrick , village social needs to work on the food quality. Loved the ambience and the service though.

The service was great. Had both breakfast and dinner at this restaurant while staying at the Biltmore Hotel. Breakfast was delicious, great coffee, and for bacon lovers like me, fantastic bacon.
Dinner...…. I had the Ribeye with a crab cake. The steak was perfect, the crab cake, not so much. The She Crab soup was very good as well. My wife had the pork chop, she enjoyed it. and again, the service was great. I would skip the crab cakes...…. everything else, go for it.

Wonderful meal after a long afternoon at the Biltmore. The crab salad was amazing and a huge portion. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail was cooked perfectly. The cheese and pickle board is a must. Our server was energetic and attentive. The food arrived quickly.

Have only eaten breakfast here before this trip (which was very good) but was disappointed in my dinner. We had a lovely salad but the entree was a bit disappointing. We ordered the ribeye. It was cooked perfectly had some strange connective tissue and was napped with a fairly insipid sauce. The asparagus that accompanied it were also not good. Since asparagus is out of season, they would have been better served with something else. For a $34 entree, it was Disappointing.

We've been there many times and enjoyed it. We like their seafood and the bar ambience. We had to send a hamburger order back twice because it was seared on the outside and raw on the inside. We finally gave up on the order.

Food was cold. 3 meals were too salty to eat. One was OK. This is the second time we've tried this restaurant. It was horrible both times. You need to find someone who can cook and not over salt things. We told the waiter about the food...since 3 meals were not touched. They comped ONE free dessert. Frankly, it was the worst food we have eaten in years. We won't be returning to this restaurant ever again. Two times with a horrible experience is enough for us. You really need a new chef.

Once again, the service and cuisine at any restaurant on the Biltmore Estate is over the top. This is my 2nd dining experience at the Village Social and both times have been absolutely outstanding - friendly, knowledgeable servers, unbelievable food that is impossible to describe in words, wonderful outdoor ambiance next to the Winery and comfortable chairs with cushions! I felt as if I were in a small Parisian cafe, but fortunately, everyone spoke English!

Server completely inattentive to table . No management in sight. Restaurant at maybe 1/3 capacity during 12:50-2:15pm.

Our server Didn’t drop or check in on either course which were served by her coworker and then she disappeared when we needed our check due to timely tours on property at the Biltmore Winery.

Gave check and cc to process to another female server who proceeded to do nothing with it but hold it and ask me who my server was because she couldn’t stop to figure it out .
Server then resurfaced and had to chase down other server w my card to process. A clown show.
Then as icing on the cake we checked in by name at the host stand 10 min early , ate/paid only to receive a no show notification on open table and had to call over to restaurant to reinstate credit for my reservation as attended.
Unacceptable service
Food though was delicious .

We were greeted by a pre-occupied hostess. We had requested patio seating and informed them on our reservation it was my wife's birthday. While most of the tables on the patio were empty, we were rushed to an inside table, handed a menu, and before being able to speak, left alone. When I mentioned to the otherwise attentive and efficient server it was my wife's birthday, he said "happy birthday"...and that was it. The food was very good though pricy. There are better choices at Biltmore.

This was the first time I have ever been here and the staff was rude. It took ny wife and I 40 minutes to be seated while arriving 15 minutes before or reservations. While waiting the waiter took another 15 minutes to come say hello and ask if we wanted drinks. I ordered a bottle or wine for us and the waiter ask if I was sure then just brought us a glass of wine. I paid for the wine and left this was the best 10th anniversary we ever had seeing we only get one. Village Social-Biltmore Estate needs to do better at service and show respect to all customers not just the white ones

Table beside us had a dog (did not appear to be a service dog) sitting in the booth eating FROM THE TABLE. Hostess asked them to set the dog in the floor but they did not comply. I love dogs myself, but I will not be going back to a restaurant that allows them to sit in the booth and pant over the table. Even though our food was delicious and the service was outstanding.

My husband and I enjoyed our outdoor lunch on the patio. The fish tacos were delicious. The grouper was fresh and made a light lunch. Sides were grilled asparagus and cauliflower slaw. Service was wonderful. I would recommend the village social for anyone looking for a nice lunch or dinner at Biltmore.
