This is our third time at the Fontana and we continue to be pleased with the atmosphere, the food, and certainly the service. We chose the pre-theater dinner as we were going to Gable Stage later in the evening. The choices were pleasing with enough variety too accommodate both our tastes and the price was very good. The service was... More

Ate at 8pm with my 11 year old daughter. The setting is delightful, if the weather is good sit outside on the fairy lit and candlelit terrace by the fountain. Our service was good - almost too quick. From ordering starters to them being on the table was around 5 minutes (I am always slightly worried by that kind of... More

We've lived in Coral Gables for a number of years, belong to the Biltmore and have been to Fontana a number of times. Four of us had a table outside by the fountain and the music was so loud that we literally vibrated. While the food was wonderful and the service excellent it was, overall, not a memorable experience, except... More

This was my third stay at the Biltmore, and we dined at Fontana each time. Service is professional, warm and attentive. Food is delicious; interesting menu, plenty of variety and well prepared. Great wine list, as well!

We were very pleased to find that some of the best Italian in Coral Gables was at the Biltmore. The courtyard transforms into a modern restaurant at night with an excellent atmosphere and great energy.

The courtyard area is stunning, with a beautiful fountain and outdoor seating. The menu for breakfast was very basic, but the food was good. The lunch and dinner menus look like good Italian fare. Only complaint was that the person at the table next to us had her dog sitting on her lap. This is an expensive hotel....I love pets,... More

Great choice of food, huge dishes (don't order too much!), very nice service - efficiency depends on who is on duty though - good food, italian/american touch.

Must do when visiting Coral Gables. A huge deal, fantastic food, drinks, and setting! If you like historic hotels, the Biltmore is a must see.

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.
