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.

Went with my family for Christmas Eve dinner and all I can say is amazing! The food was so thoughtfully prepared and the service was spectacular!

This review pertains to our two breakfast experiences only. The restaurant is in a posh hotel, The Biltmore, so we had proportionate expectations for breakfast there. Day one: My wife ordered a cheese omelette from the menu and it was quite good and fluffy. I had one from the omelette station, made in frittata style with mushrooms, tomato and spinach,... More

The greeting from the hostess was a little cold, not sure why...Food was only ok, I had the lobster and squid ink ravioli, hubby had the special with veal meatballs. Service was good and attentive, venue was lovely.

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.
