I stayed at Fontana Village Resort for the first time last weekend. I was very surprised at how nice it is and this restaurant is excellent!!! I was here with a large group of friends so service was a little slow but there were a lot of us. I had the Smoked Trout Risotto and it was excellent. I also... More

On arrival, the restaurant has a really nice ambience, with windows overlooking the mountains and nice low lighting. There was a stone wall at one end. The tables were huge, almost too big. No table cloths. The food was excellent, nuanced, well prepared. My wife had braised beef spare rib and mashed potatoes. I had shrimp and grits which were... More

The Service was fantastic! Dinner was very good but a bit over priced for what you get. The shrimp and grits was a big hit but not worth $22. The breakfast buffet is not good at all, unless you like paying $12 for powdered eggs and room temperature sausage and bacon.

The food was amazing. The steak dinner was big enough for my husband and I to share. Plus a wedge salad and Cream brulee cheesecake

The Bistro was a nice surprise at the resort. We did not go specifically for the restaurants, but this one provided a wonderful evening. The food was amazing, they worked very hard to provide a super nice dinner to my wife who has several food allergies and made her feel welcome.

Having never been to this area in the North Carolina mountains my husband and I decided on Fontana Village because it offered several options for eating. We did not want to be driving around the mountains after sunset. We never imagined that the food and the staff would be so amazing! The staff made us feel welcomed and all were... More

Visited the Bistro with business associate and enjoyed lunch. I had the dam burger which was cooked to perfection. My associate had the French dip. Along with a great lunch we enjoyed an awesome view.
