We were 8 people at the biltmore for 4 nights. We did hope the Christmas diner would be great, but it has been disappointing ! First, the ambiance was very cold : except a wonderful Christmas tree nothing was made to transform this evening in a party evening. The food was good. But the service was awful : 1. We... More

The Fontana inside the Biltmore Hotel makes fresh pasta every morning and has excellent Italian fare. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and provides very good casual dining with great service, good food and a good wine list.

I went there for my anniversary. The atmosphere is beautiful, the service is great and the variety and price of wines is good. But the food is not as good as I expected. I ordered The Gnocchis Gorgonzola, because I looove the taste. But I was very disappointed. Maybe bad luck, but it´s a nice and romantic place to celebrate... More

The atmosphere is lovely with a fountain and tropical setting. I enjoy the Italian dishes available. Excellent Salads and soups. The brunch has a large variety and shouldn't be missed if you are a guest. The architecture is old Florida, love it!!

This restaurant is inside The Biltmore, one of the best hotels in Miami. It is the cheaper of the two restaurants and the food is excellent, to match with the atmosphere.

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
