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

Fontana is the less formal Italian restaurant at the Biltmore, as compared to the gastronomic La Palme d'Or. Particularly beautiful setting in the patio.

One of the most scenic locations for dining in all of Miami. That's the bonus. They have terrific service, and a full menu. We had an incredible start to the day with a breakfast fit for royalty. Their menu is extensive, and then there was the option for a buffet. If you are looking to make an impression, this is... More

We were seated outside as inside was 'full'. Normally not a problem for us, but when the fan above you is 'broken', the wheel-in outdoor ac unit is ineffective and they don't keep any bug spray for those evenings when the bugs WERE biting, it doesn't make for the greatest dining experience. We found our server to be inattentive, often... More

For Italian pasta, it was on the expensive side. Pasta should not be expensive (take a walk down your supermarket aisles). The food was hot and there was a good variety to choose from.

The atmosphere of the atrium like restaurant is unique. The food we got last time (we are customers since many years) has extremely improved.

This is a lovely.intimate place to dine. The food was superb. My husband and I both ordered the same entree which was the special that night. It was fettuccine with mussels and clams and shrimp and lobster and other yummy things. He managed to finish his and I made it about half way through. oh,and we started with their bruschetta...

I had heard great things about the brunch at the Biltmore, so we decided to bring our friend to celebrate her birthday and it did not disappoint. The setting is beautiful with a very lively and warm ambience. We sat outside by the fountain and staff quickly rearranged umbrellas to keep us in the shade, and later escorted us to... More

Am a local and have dined here over the years but not recently until this week when for various reasons I found myself sitting down at Fontana two nights in a row. The restaurant is as attractive as ever with a lovely court yard option. The food was the issue. On night one my entre of grilled octopus was the... More

This is our second time eating at the Fontana as a couple. We love dining on the patio although it was a little buggy until the sun went down – some sort of flying insect had clearly just hatched. We love the bread they serve with the meal. My husband had the buffalo mozzarella & tomato and we split bruschetta.... 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.
