Truly a fine dining experience. We arrived about 15 minutes early and were seated right away at an intimate table that had an excellent view of the estate. The service was impeccable, from the wine selection to recommendations and the specials. You can choose from a 3 course prix fixe menu or a 5 course prix fixe menu. We did... More

We decided on The Dining Room during our weekend stay at the Inn knowing that it would be expensive (though it really wasn't) and formal. What a treat to do so. The food---filet mignon--salad and dessert were wonderful. Splurge and do this while visiting Biltmore. You won't regret it.

We were there for lunch and everything was very, very good (and my husband is quite picky). A nice variety of selections - the chicken salad was excellent as were the fish entrees. Our server was delightful and had a wonderful sense of humor! Prices were equal to the quality.

The entire dining experience was just excellent. The hostess, the waiter and the servers could not have been more pleasant and attentive. The atmosphere is fantastic. Great ambiance and they do not stack the tables too close together. The food was excellent. It is a prix fixe menu with your choice of either 3 or 5 courses. We had the... More

We stayed overnight at the Inn, so we went down to The Dining Room for breakfast. It was a wonderful buffet (oh the cheese grits!!!) with an omelet bar. The Dining Room itself is beautiful and we got a table next to a large window overlooking the property. Breakfast was peaceful, relaxing, and delicious. It was not inexpensive however the... More

DINNER: I want to review our dinner at The Dining Room restaurant first. We had reservations from way back and were seated at a very special table for two in front of the fireplace. It felt definitely festive and the manager send over a bottle of Biltmore champagne for our celebratory dinner. We ordered the three courses dinner and enjoyed... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant evening in the nice settings of the Dining room at the Inn on the Biltmore Estate. Our waiter Elijah, was very good. His wine recommendations and attention to his service contributed to making this night out a very pleasant experience. The menu was varied, with a very good seasonal soft shell crab appetizer, and it... More

We sat right in front of fireplace. Chris our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. We did 3 course which was more than enough. It was very formal but not uncomfortable. I got the filet, good but a bit over cooked. Try the Black Forest dessert...unbelievable! We would go back. Not to overpriced.
