This restaurant was located inside the Hilton Hotel and very convenient for us. Breakfast is great, burgers/sandwiches for lunch were good and although the menu is very limited we enjoyed the Spicy Salmon. The wait staff was friendly & courteous.....thank you all!

We enjoyed a few cocktails here. Range apx $10 each. Normal for this type of establishment. Food looked delicious. Limited menu but we didn't eat here. Just kicked back and relaxed. Bartender friendly.

We met here for book club - a group of 4. While the food was good, our server was quite inexperienced and slow. I was served hot tea in a carafe with no mug. We were served champagne in wine glasses. Waited 40 minutes for...our entrees. Had to flag down our waitress almost every time we needed something.More

A friend and I met for dinner here recently and had a great experience. When we learned the restaurant was in the lobby of the hotel we nearly chose somewhere else to eat but boy were we glad we didn’t. What a fabulous meal!! I...ordered the brussel spouts appetizer —perhaps the best brussel sprouts I have ever had! Also had the filet mignon and two sides. It was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!More

This restaurant is located in the lobby of the Hilton Biltmore in Town Square. It is a quiet little intimate place, even though it is in the lobby. We started with the beef and barley soup that was amazing. We also started with the black...bean hummus with home made corn chips... Very good... Since t was lunch we opted for burgers... Both came out as requested and we're very good .. we have subsequently eaten here every day of ur vacay... Service was amazing both with Michael and Andrew. We would highly recommend this place if you are in the area!More

The food served at this restaurant is really, really really good. The rainbow trout is from Rainbow Farms which cares for and feeds these fish premium food. The salmon is cooked to perfection and the sauces are unbeatable. The trout comes with pickled mushrooms? Hello?...SOOOO good! Busy for breakfast and sometimes quiet for late lunch or early dinner- but fills up quickly. The Bar is beyond awesome too. It helps that Virginia Beach or Jay are there, and can make you something creative or classic- I recommend the Blue Ghost or something green in a martini glass garnished with lemon balm:)More
