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.

“Pricey but excellent!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Brunch: their brunch on Sundays is the best and the most expensive I have ever been to. It cost $85 per person. This price includes as many mimosas, champagne, bloody Mary's you can drink and they were very good quality and our waitr kept refilling them constantly! They have an amazing food selection that includes, several types of caviar, lobster ceviche, sushi, crablegs...they have several stations with pasta, prime rib, pork roast, breakfast station....they also have an entire room with desserts. It's open until 4 pm and you should make a reservation, don't think that because it's expensive you will find a table at the last minute. American coffee and tea are also included it.

“Elegant Hotel”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The Biltmore is a beautiful place. You stand on the sidewalk and you can't help, but stare at this beautiful building in the middle of a neighborhood. It is amazing. The pool is magnificent and the restaurants expensive, but good.

“Worth it”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

It's on the expensive side (as is almost everything at The Biltmore) but it is worth it. The food is good but the service is outstanding. The service staff is very well trained and it shows. If you get to sit outside on a mild evening, all the better. How can you not admire the beauty of this property?
