Delicious

I would highly recommend this restaurant. We had House Cured Meats and Cheese Board for appetizer and Stable Café Sampler as a main dish. It was very good, especially smoked ribs.

My family and I ate at the Stable Cafe after seeing Biltmore and before our flight out. My husband and I shared the barbecue sampler. I'm giving it five stars for what it is. It is not a five star upscale restaurant. But I could not find fault in any part of our meal. It was reasonably priced, great meal... More

Wonderful food and setting! Sampler for two is perfect for lunch! So much to see on the interior. You can almost hear the horse hoofs on the old brick pavers. Perfect!

I've eaten here several times, and always enjoy the food and attentive service. We chose this for dinner prior to a concert and found it convenient and relaxing. Plenty of time to enjoy a prix fixe 3-course meal and walk to the other side of Biltmore House for the concert. Toy Box Tomato Panzanella Salad, Crab Cakes and Coconut Panna... More

We enjoyed a leisurely meal here while waiting for the Chris Tomlin & Mercy Me concert and everything we had was superb! A little pricey but what do you expect at The Biltmore? Service; outstanding, food; delicious and well presented. A delightful compliment to any visit to the Biltmore Estate.

What a great idea for a restaurant. They turned what was an amazing stable into a very nice place to eat. Some tables are actually located in the former horse stalls. What a gorgeous stable this must have been. Now lets turn to the food. There was 4 of us here for lunch, we had a variety of food. We... More

Love this place, how fun to eat in a stable, and it's beautiful. We got the dinner for 2, so much food that 3 of us couldn't finish it. Our waiter was great. It's busy but they get people in pretty fast.

We went there with a couple of friends during our visit of the Biltmore estate. The restaurant is in a very wide horse stable. Everything is well design and we can see it the way it was a century ago. Less the horses of course... The meal was just perfect. I recommend the "tasting plate" to have a chance to... More

Well, at least I could pretend to be in presence of the famous Biltmore Estate residents. After all this was their stable, but now is a gleaming restaurant with booths where the stalls once serviced their horses. The menu had lots to offer, and several were called "favorites" of the Vanderbilts. I selected the herb roasted chicken, and was not... More

7 of us visited the Stable Café for lunch before touring the Biltmore house. All 7 of us were happy with our food. I had the macaroni and cheese of the day and it was delicious, made with several different cheeses, scallions, and chicken. It came with a side salad with the honey Dijon house dressing. My friends had the... More
