    Our reservation was at 2:15 P.M. We checked in at 1:30 p.m. and were told it would be about 20 minutes. Less than 10 minutes later, we received the text that our table was ready! The food was wonderful, and we especially enjoyed the Blackberry Lemonade! The restaurant was a bit on the warm side, but we still enjoyed our meal very much! We will be back soon!

    The Stable Cafe was very nice and food was good. Being set in the Biltmore Stables gives it an unparalleled charm. The only negative is that there is no air conditioning and on a June day it was warmer than we would have liked it to be. I would have welcomed more fans throughout the restaurant.

    We found that during our dining that the power went out and we could only order no-cooked food, My wife and I ordered a sandwich, a lemonade, and a dessert for each of us. The bill, including tip (20%), came to $86. I found the price to be exorbitant for such a small meal. We are both retired so this can be a financial strain for those of us who are retired. Talking with a staff member, she told us the Bitlmore employees approx 2800 people. I know there are expenses on your end but please reconsider the pricing of meals and other items. thank you.

    Wished the menu would have had a section on the history of the stable and how each area was used.. larger bs smaller stalls/ upstairs, etc. Our server was helpful but she was busy so we did feel a bit disappointed in the “information and history” of the very large room.

    Had lunch at the Stable Cafe after our tour. The restaurant is cool because it’s in the old stables. It was moderately noisy because the tables are very close to each other but still very enjoyable. I had the chicken salad (salad, not sandwich) and it was very good, perfect after a hot tour of the garden. My daughter had the Cobb salad and the ranch dressing was delicious. My husband had the burger and said it was okay.

    Fantastic service! Fantastic food! Very romantic setting! It was crowded yet still somewhat private in one of the “stalls” aka booths. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Prii oh manly the best shrimp and grits I’ve ever eaten :)

    Nice and busy place - great service. Rather dry (rare, as ordered) black and bleu burger. Fries were cold. On another order, dry turkey sandwich. But, we'd go back - this was just a hiccup, last time was 4-5 stars. :)

    We were lucky enough to go to lunch at the Stable Cafe the other day. It was so much fun sitting in the one of the horse stalls! I had the brie and fig burger, and my husband had meatloaf. He said it was wonderful, and mine was too. We also had a Blueberry Cosmo to drink. It was wonderful. Thanks for a great experience!!
