We stayed at the Biltmore for 2 nights. The first night we had such a fabulous dinner at their Palme d'Or that we decided to try Fontana on our last night. What a big mistake! The service was TERRIBLE. We had a plane to catch so we told our waiter that we had to leave no later than 8:30pm. We... More

We had lunch here at part of the Miami Spice promotion. The food and atmosphere were very good. The fries were amazing. Service was ok. There were a few awkward moments. They also made a mistake in the bill, but it was handled within our party. I also thought the Miami Spice menu choices were a bit limited. Parking at... More

We sat outside for our breakfast even though it was August. The setting is so beautiful in a spanish-style courtyard. Hector was our waiter both mornings and he was so cheerful and friendly. You can do their buffet or order a la carte. Either way the food was fresh and well-prepared. I understand their Sunday brunch is spectacular. We didn't... More

Promotional and discounted limited menu meals. We dined with friends; five for lunch. The food was "nothing to write home about." We just returned from a Caribbean cruise and the complimentary dining was far superior. The service was nothing special.... The server removed my bread plate, but left the bread basket, when the entree was served.... is there a new... More

Great experience overall. The restaurant is located inside the Biltmore Hotel. Incredible curb appeal and a gorgeous setting. Service could not have been better. We were looked after quite nicely. Everyone had a can-do attitude. An excellent menu. We were there during Miami Spice, which is a promotion that had an incredible value packed lunch menu. We went with the... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Miami, although technically it is Coral Gables. Lavish food, great attentive service all in an incredible internal patio around a beautiful fountain. They economize on nothing for their guests, you can feel that the food is always of fresh ingredients and they try to make you comfortable and relaxed at all times. Better prebook,... More

We had breakfast there twice and were charmed by the staff. The menu needs to be expanded to include vegan options, however. If the staff hadn't been so great, we would NOT have given it this high a rating because there was very little we could eat and not a single vegan protein option. The staff made up for it... More

The food, the Courtyard, the fountain and the entire venue is absolutely beautiful. Great place to propose or celebrate an anniversary. The food is excellent, the presentation is beautiful, the service is excellent. I have also been here over two dozen times and it is a must whenever in the Gables. Even if you are rained in, the inside dining... More

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.
