We had Sunday brunch at the Biltmore Bar & Grill in Newton Upper Falls. The interior evokes the ambiance of an earlier time. However, the menu promised more than it delivered. Our food took a long time in coming and was cold to lukewarm when it arrived. The flavors were good but they would have been enhanced it our food... More

Biltmore is well known for its extensive beer selection but they also have an interesting selection of food that is just slightly twisted from the norm. It is all good stuff and makes it a popular place to go for lunch or dinner. I especially like their pulled pork as well as their flat bread pizzas.

Table service was excellent. Sunday brunch offers interesting and tasty selections. Beer selection is second to none and the options for a Bloody Mary completed a wonderful experience.

They always have an amazing selection of craft beer. The food is incredible, very well prepared. You have to try the Biltmore burger and the popcorn chicken they are the best! The bar staff is really nice, they will remember your order the next time they see you! It's also an awesome place to watch Patriots / Celtics, sports games.

Used to be one of our favorites, was good to come early with kiddos or later with friends/date. Have not found the updated menu items to be as good and the service absolutely declined. Too close to Dunn Gaherins not be great.

The Biltmore bar and grill is an exciting neighborhood restaurant / bar. Looks very nostalgic inside with their paintings and photos . Great assortment of drinks . Food is excellent.parking a little tight out back.

Good cold brew and a nice selection on draft. The onion soup was a bit different with cheese filled croutons instead of the cheese melted on top. I had the London Broil pile up and it was melt in your mouth delicious. Service was very good

Just had a wonderful al fresco dinner with the kids. They've changed the menu and have added a variety of excellent selections. Had the Arizona burger---delectable! Kids had the breaded---but not fried---chicken tenders. They looked so good I snagged one! We had ms. Jenny as our server. She was superb!!! Really enjoyable evening under the stars. Will definitely be back.

This bar was great for our late evening get together. It was within walking distance from the Biltmore hotel we were staying at. Good service and nice staff.

The place was packed, and yes, the service was painfully slow.. I have to give an excellent rating as I believe their end product proved more valuable than the wait. The food was to die for, prepared with their standard, and a very apologetic waiter put things in perspective. We heard the kitchen was "swamped", yet, under pressure, still delivered... More 

Thank honest reviewer
