This restaurant has some of the most delicious Italian fare in all of Florida. All of the pasta is homemade and, if you are fortunate enough to have the real Italian chef there the night you dine, go for the wonderful Bolognese sauce he makes. We started with Frito Misto which is the best we have had outside of the... More

Very well could be the most beautiful spot in all of South Florida. Definitely in the top 5! Fontana is located at The Biltmore Hotel. Built in 1929, and simply gorgeous. They have seating inside and outside. We sat right next to the fountain (Fontana), and it could not have been a better lunch. The menu is excellent. My lunch... More

Fontana is located at the Biltmore Hotel, Nice ambience but the food it's not at the level this place deserves. Service was excellent and whether it's not a complaint, the house could do a little bit better on the taste of the different plates, that looks good when you read it in the menu, but doesn't taste as good.

If you want a fancy plce with fancy lunch at a decent price.....this is it. Panini prosciutto sandwich was a large portion. Fries are skinny and nicely salted. Price was great.

I went for lunch with a friend today and chose the Miami Spice menu. It was really delicious and the portion size was excellent. I chose the French bean, fennel, walnuts,mint and blood orange salad which was very refreshing. Then branzino fillet topped with duchesse potato and sautéed beets was excellent. And finally a yummy strawberry pannacotta ! We had... More

You are unlikely to find better Italian in Miami, or almost anywhere else (outside of Italy). The Biltmore has this right. The homemade pasta is excellent - there were 3 of us, we had 3 different pasta dishes, and we all had the same opinion. It is possible to eat outside, al-fresco, next to their fountain, but the inside is... More

Italian cuisine with an extensive wine list. Service is always on point and the food consistent and delicious. Helpful hint: Sit outside the ambiance is the best part of the experience.

Although we have a home in Coral Gables, this is the first time we have dined at The Biltmore. We chose Fontana on a whim. It was our 6th anniversary, and we wanted to go someplace special. This met the criteria in every way. From the time we arrived until we left, we felt like valued customers. Not something that... More

Sitting in the evening outside by the fountain and sounds of the water, and the muted lighting was a delight. The Italian food cocked to perfection. The wine suggestions we honest and we had the time of our lives.

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.
