Description: One of the few remaining Miami locales offering traditional English afternoon tea, the Biltmore is arguably the most elegant venue, with its soaring vaulted ceiling, magnificent lobby and majestically mantled fireplace. The refreshing repast is served daily and is complemented with and elegant harp weekdays and music of an accomplished classical guitarist on the weekends. During the holiday season guests can expect themed pastries.Reservations are recommended.

“a pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Service excellent and food was perfect. Great choice of wine.
Walking into the restaurant via the front door, does not work.
You have to go to the center hallway and asked to be seated.

I think this restaurant is nice, but very pricey for what we ordered. I was not that impressed with ambiance although food and service were very good
