The Dining Room at the Inn on Biltmore Estate is our top destination for special occasions, and has by far the best food and service in the region, and perhaps in the entire state. Many ingredients are locally sourced or even site-grown, so dishes are not just tasty but wonderfully fresh-tasting. Ambience: The restaurant occupies the lower floor of the... More

The food is very good. The atmosphere is very formal. We felt more comfortable at the Bistro with my food allergies but we were still accommodated. The Bistro is the best restaurant on the Estate.

Once we got past the reservation time mix up and the odd attitude of the receptionist, the evening dinning was very nice. Window table with beautiful view. Attentive waitstaff. Food presentation was good and taste was excellent. All and all, once in the dinning room, it was a wonderful experience.

The breakfast buffet was outstanding with a good selection and the freshest of foods. And, dinner was one of the best I have had. The meat was cooked to perfection, the vegetables fresh from the garden and the wine from the Estate. A fantastic experience!

The Dining Room on the Biltmore Estate is an excellent choice for a special occasion. (I am actually planning on taking my husband here for a Christmas treat). The food, of course, is wonderful. Everything is fresh and delicious. The service is fantastic...they treat each guest as if they are the most important person in the room. My favorite time... More

If you want/need to kick back just a bit but don't want to splurge on a night at The Inn, take in a meal on the terrace overlooking the valley of the French Broad river and the majestic Blue Ridge beyond. They have a lighter-faire menu (and drinks) available and the ambiance is fantastic.

We chose the three course menu and we were very pleased with our meal. The service was outstanding and our table was at a window with beautiful views of the grounds. We were treated by a lightning show during the dessert course. We were celebrating my birthday and the chef wrote "happy birthday" on my plate--a nice touch!

The Dining Room is a beautiful space with large windows overlooking the North Carolina mountains. The service was top notch and the menu was modern and interesting - not just a meat and potatoes place to say the least. The waiter offered a substantial wine list but we selected one of the Biltmore Estate wines, and after a taste of... More
