Incredible experience! We had a beautiful dinner and experience at Canyon Kitchen for a long-awaited weekend in the mountains and our 16th Anniversary. Our server was excellent, attentive, the ambiance was incredible. A gorgeous chilly October day, fires on, doors open and just beautiful. We can’t wait to come back next season! Very highly recommend. More

Another great meal, another great experience. The owners should be proud of their staff handling every detail while they were on vacation. We were so excited to see Andrew even if only for a short stand in. Nevell our server NEVER DISAPPOINTS! The black bass was cooked to perfection along with everything else.

Contemporary American | Asheville, Asheville

Enjoy a delicious offering from our menu while relaxing with a book or just taking in the breathtaking view of the estate. We serve an all-day menu and a late–night dinner menu. A working farm has been part of Biltmore Estate since our beginning in 1895. That legacy continues today. Biltmore operates its farm and field-to-table program with estate-grown greens, berries, eggs, beef, and lamb, and partnerships with farmers in Western North Carolina for locally-sourced trout, cheese, beef, and pork for our restaurants.More

Discover Asheville

Some of the area chefs in Asheville have nicknamed their town "Foodtopia" because of the area's well-known creative passion for great cuisine. Culinary experts throughout the entire western portion of North Carolina appear to have adopted this sentiment. Elegant fine dining establishments can be found alongside mid-priced luncheonettes. You can find a creative local deli for sandwiches, soups, and salads. Your hotel's dining area may turn out to be a five-star restaurant. Whether you're in Asheville or another Western North Carolina hub, there is no shortage of high-quality food choices. European flavors are popular; German schnitzel with spaetzle shows up on menus around town. Mexican fare is another plentiful option, and Caribbean spices have found a place in the Asheville area too. Many local menus provide vegetarian and vegan choices as well as gluten-free options.
