Made reservations on OpenTable for a Friday night in August to try out the Miami Spice menu. Hostess seated us immediately with our choice of indoors or outdoors, we chose indoors. Although had the weather outside been less humid, it would have been a real treat to sit out and see the beautiful architecture and feel the cozy energy from... More

Nice place, good food; to be completely honest the POLPETTINE DI AGNELLO CON CARCIOFI SU CROSTONI DI PANE ALL'AGLIO (braised lamb meat balls, artichokes, garlic toasted tuscan bread) were amazing; but the fact that our waitress wasted a glass of our bottle of wine, pouring wine IN the water glass (with water) and NEVER did anything to compensate the mistake;...

Great Italian restaurant at the Biltmore Hotel. Traditional Italian fare cooked in an open kitchen directed by a chef from Bologna. How much more authentic can you get!

Our group chose to seat inside in the air-conditioned area. The Champagne Sunday brunch was classy. All the food stations had a very good selection; the seafood station had a great choice of shrimp, oysters, crab leg, salmon, caviar and more. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived until we left.

Stayed at the hotel and had breakfast here 3 times. Had to try different things. All were fantastic. The service was great. Atmosphere....well who wouldn't love that atrium. Food is just as good as it looks. Fresh fruits, cheeses, ham and delicious croissants. Worth every penny. Not to mention the Lavazza coffee. Some May claim its pricey but you really... More

If the weather is sunny and fine you must dine in Fontana Ristorante's gorgeous courtyard with its ornate central fountain and views of the Biltmore’s stunning Mediterranean architecture. Fontana is both charming and sophisticated. Chef Beppe Galazzi uses local and farm fresh organic ingredients throughout the menu and there's plenty of choice

Breakfast at Fontana is such a relaxing & enjoyable experience. It's expensive, but I expect that of hotel dining. Our meal was delicious: particularly the hash browns.
