When we stay at Biltmore we usually eat at Cedrick's Tavern or at the Biltmore Inn dining room. We chose The Village Social for its varied menu options, and it did not disappoint. Our server was fantastic and the food was delicious. We will definitely return!

Sat. night very noisy with many families and loud guitar music. Difficult to have a conversation with a person sitting across from you.

Five friends and I were here for dinner. I had the grouper (market fish of the day). Everyone loved their food; all was perfectly prepared and served hot. Staff was friendly and attentive (not overly). We dined outside on a beautiful night; passing through the inside restaurant seemed a little noisy. I highly recommend the Village Social.

Seating was poor (mostly empty restaurant and everyone crowed into one corner).
Noted our anniversary on reservation and no mention. Food was very pricey and mediocre.

We had a mini family reunion, and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal selections and drink choices. Because I wasn't all that hungry, I had the bacon wrapped scallops as my lunch. They were perfection! Huge scallops perfectly cooked, and the bacon had a nice crisp to it. I started out with a gin martini which was really good, but my cousin's husband ordered a blackberry jalapeno mule with tequila, and it was fantastic! I gave my husband the rest of my martini and ordered the mule. Then my husband ordered the blackberry mule, and then my brother in law's wife. It was that good! The service was impeccable. The only drawback was that my brother-in-law and his wife were only coming for lunch, and they still had to buy full freight tickets to the Biltmore ($160), which made for a very expensive meal for them. If and when I go back to the Biltmore, I would definitely go to this restaurant again. Superb!

Reviews were good for Village Social, so we booked it for a birthday dinner, just the two of us. It was very hard to find, so call ahead if you go to get a good description of where it is on the Biltmore property. It shares a large parking lot with other venues, and there's no valet parking, so be prepared to walk a bit. Our reservations were for 5:15PM, and we were seated right away, but we had very slow service throughout the evening. We had a burger and shrimp and grits which were both good, but not fantastic. As the evening went on, it became very loud which was annoying, even though we were in a quiet corner. Adding that to the difficult location and mediocre service, we weren't very impressed. It would probably have been better if we were guests in the hotel instead.

Enjoyable lunch, prime rib sandwich and fish tacos. Fantastic dessert- upside down pineapple cheesecake.

Not our first visit, great wait staff and service, we prefer their menu to Cedric’s for lunch. Interesting menu selection and less rustic. The wait staff went out of their way to get information for our visit to the Chihuly glass sculpture event at the Estate.

What was presented as a seafood place turned out to be a bar serving as a main pass thru to the hotel. Ambiance none, music loud and unforgiving! A digitally looped bass line does not constitute music. Overall a disappointing experience.

Actually, we were seated earlier than our reservation. Service was prompt. Started with a glass of wine from the Biltmore Estate Winery. We ordered the shrimp & grits and the pork chop with collard. Both entrees came out in a timely fashion. Both entrees were very good. We would recommend this venue as a convenient place for lunch or dinner when visiting the Biltmore Estate.

We had the baked Oyster appetizer, they were quite small, but very tasty. The waiter brought us out 2 more, totaling 8 to make up for the size. We also had the Pork Chop dinner with broccoli and grits. It was delicious. We asked for a table tucked away slightly to enjoy some quiet date time, and were easily accommodated. The wine list was very nice as well. We had a very enjoyable evening at Biltmore and Village Social.

The Village Social, located in the Village Hotel at Biltmore, is not as good as other restaurants on the estate. Advertising seafood and some grilled items, the service was hectic and the food was not polished ie - the scallops, although cooked correctly, were too salty because of the prosciutto wrapping. The shrimp and grits was OK, but they had not stirred the grits in some time, and there were lumps,

Dinner before Chihuly Exhibit. Flavorful, locally sourced pork chop. Fabulous Manhattan the recipe for which the bartender shared. Service was impeccable. Noise level not consistent with ongoing conversation, however. Banjo playing very loud; I thought dulcimer would have been more consistent with the locale and ambiance and would have allowed conversation

Loud. Food was OK, barely! Seemed like a good menu, but let us down. Definitely disappointing. The noise was intolerable. Had a reservation. Made us wait significant time to be seated. Some excuse about people coming in and seating themselves, so we had to wait.

There was a VERY large group that arrived just after we were seated. We were moved to a table for 2 in the corner but the noise level was still high. We did not complain but now we know that this is a place that caters to large groups who are visiting the grounds and perhaps staying at the Inn. Our server was great but failed to tell the kitchen to serve the potatoes without salt. The salt was very visible and therefore were uneaten. The fish tacos were good.

We had gone to the Village Social last year on the day after our daughter got married and I decided that it would be a perfect spot for our son's graduation party from The University of North Carolina, Asheville. I was right! We had a party of 8. The Village Social had an awesome table ready for us with 2 people at either end so it was a bit more cozy. The live music created a party atmosphere without being too loud. The Village Social accommodated a variety of food allergy needs that some of us had. They happily hid our gluten free cake until the end and then brought it out to the graduate. He was surprised and happy.
