    Very disappointed after reading all the great reviews Pulled pork sandwich...pork, dry not much taste. Bun..not fresh and fries were dry too. Maybe another selection would have fared better.

    Lovely meal at the Biltmore House. We enjoyed the relaxing time in the horse stall booth. Service was excellent, food good. I would recommend making a reservation in advance it makes for a nice sit down meal in AC.

    Atmosphere was nice but it was loud and that made it difficult to talk to people at the other end of the table. The beans in my chili were undercooked and crunchy. Food was good but overpriced but I expected that.

    The visit was ok. I did however expected to be thrilled. My expectations were too high, I ordered a salad. The fruit in the salad was fresh and tasty, the lettuce not cut up well with no spinach in the mix. The melody my spouse ordered was major disappointment.

    The reception at the front desk and the server were gracious and knowledgeable. The manager stopped by our table to greet us. Peach sangria was delicious! And our meal was great as well. We left our credit card, and they promptly called me and had arranged to keep it safe in the office. Great experience!

    We have been going to Biltmore for several years now. We always eat at the Stables. The food and service are outstanding. I have never had a single bad experience there. The prices are very reasonable, too. Everyone who works there is enthusiastic and goes out of their way. The menu has great variety, as well. I highly recommend eating there.

    We were seated at an obviously dirty table and had to ask for it to be cleaned. When our meals were delivered, one was correct, one was completely incorrect. When the "correct" meal was delivered ten minutes later, the entree was missing several components that were listed in the menu. These were brought to the table upon request. We were compensated for the inconveniences without having to ask. Service was friendly in spite of the snafus. My ratings reflect this. This is my second visit - my first was terrific - so I think this was just a bad day.

    The Stable Cafe was a nice change from our typical selection of Cedric’s Tavern. The hostess was very gruff but the rest of the meal was great. They let my daughter sample something prior to her ordering it to make sure she would eat it. The food was amazing and the portion sizes were huge. Highly recommend!

    It was disappointing. This menu had so much more potential, but the food was very average -could have gotten better at a large chain such as Cheedar's or Applebee's. The service was great, the venue was awesome - menu and kitchen need a revamp.
