“Wow! Great Location - Excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

What a great place for a meal after a long day of trekking around the Biltmore. We ate in the Dining Room and chose ordering from the menu rather than the buffet and we're glad we did. Service was outstanding as was the food. All while overlooking the Pisgah National Forest mountains. Magnifique

“Nice ambiance, wonderful food and a perfect setting.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We had lunch at "The Library" on the outside deck. It was lovely and the service and food quality was just a good. Very elegant surroundings with a courteous and friendly staff, most of whom are impeccable dressed. This is a first class restaurant deserving of many accolades. The food was just delicious. I would never hesitate coming back and may come back here to stay at the hotel, just to dine.

“Worth the cost”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Are there other restaurants in Asheville that serve similar dishes, yes. Are there other restaurants in Asheville that have the level of service and ambiance as the Inn, no in my opinion. Visited for the first time last week and the service was outstanding. Our server Brian, as well as the rest of the wait staff clearly set this restaurant apart from the rest. Is it expensive? Yes, however the service is second to none in the Asheville area. I have lived here 12 plus years and have eaten at many excellent restaurants (Rezzas , Table, Cucina 24, The Grove Park and many others and this restaurant stands out for the service and ambiance.

“Breakfast Delight”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Our stay included the breakfast buffet which was extensive and delicious, from the chef cooked omelet to the magnificent views from the restaurant. Service was unassuming and timely. Total enjoyment!

“Overall Pretty Good, but not quite as advertised”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Dined for my birthday last night here ... I was expecting to be wowed ... got wooed, not wowed.
Firstly a word about the kids menu, hopeless .... peanut butter and jelly, pizza ... are you kidding me??? Couldn't they come up with simple tasty upscale variants on the kids menu? How about kid size pork chops or kid size roast beef dinners?
The adults at the table all chose the bison main course at $40 per plate .... in my books bison is supposed to be lean .... we got big chunks of fat and grissle to deal with .... at $40 per plate!!! Really?!?!
Presentation was beautiful and service standards were also good (except our waiter brought us the dessert menu to chose from even though my husband had special ordered a birthday cake - which was a little careless of our waiter)
Dessert won the prize ... the special birthday cake my husband ordered ... WAS DELICIOUS, not too sweet, light and visually beautiful ... bakery department gets a A+
Would we eat here again ... most probably, as we stay at The Biltmore a couple of times a year .... could they do better? Definitely ... the dining room needs to step it up a notch or two!
A few by the side comments, request either a window table or fireside table.
The pre-dinner cocktail are delicious.
