    From the moment we arrived our experience was delightful. We were celebrating my son's 60th birthday and the food, drinks and service was excellent. I enjoy lunch at the 19th hole as well as Fontana often and look forward to enjoying dinner more often.

    Worst Italian food we've ever had. Both my husband and I were disappointed. And our whole visit there was a dog barking frequently somewhere in the courtyard. I don't mind a restaurant allowing WELL BEHAVED dogs but barking dogs are very disturbing.

    Yesterday we had a family birthday dinner. We had an eggplant and meatball as an antipasti. It was ok, not excellent, also a little bit oversalted. Then we ordered zucca ravioli, seafood risotto, bistecca and lobster ravioli. The zucca ravioly was oversalted.and tasteless. Bistecca was ok, but it didn’t look like 14oz, portion could be bigger and with less fat. The positive- seafood risotto and lobster ravioli were delicious. Desserts also were very good. Service was great and the staff was super nice.

    The Biltmore is a beautiful historic building, however, we were on time for our reservation but the hostess (who was not too friendly) took more than ten minutes to finally seat us. The restaurant was not busy on a Wednesday evening. We felt that the indoor seating was more like a hotel breakfast setting. It took a while for a server to come to our table and she was not terribly attentive throughout our dinner. The food was mediocre for the value.

    the hotel is beautiful, really nice but the breakfast buffet was not as expected. The room was SO DARK and ugly, the food variety was practically nil, no yogurts, no variety of potatoes, cold cuts looked cheap. YOU HAVE SO LIMITED OPTIONS! never seen something like that on a 5stars hotel breakfast buffet, I was expecting like Ritz Carlton, JW ambiance.. NO WAY! Cheap, cheap cheap.. no egg benedicts on buffet, no quality options.. THAT DOESN'T COST WHAT THEY CHARGE. NEVER AGAIN

    The patio area around fountain has been cleaned up. Everything looked clean and crisp. Awesome 70 degree night. I had delmonico steak (slightly thinner ribeye ) but 14 oz over mashed and spinach. My wife had salmon over lemon risotto with chives. Sounds weird but great with fish. Free plentiful parking in spite of huge gables charity event at same time.

    Average buffet breakfast but neither dairy products nor fresh bread. No smoked salmon,Scramble eggs as an omelette…No fresh cakes. Price with tax / and 18% gratuities is 90 dollars for2,seems to be excessive. Suggestion: improve quality (plenty of room) or decrease price (plenty of room as well).

    Couldn’t get 630 reservation. So settled for 6. Place was 80% empty when I left after 7. Food is very good. Lobster fettuccini and Caesar salad. Staff is spread thin but great when attending. Chef asked how is my pasta. Portion of pasta increased since last review. Parking is free and abundant. Can eat inside, under patio overhang, or when it’s not flooded actual patio. Usually quiet but a party of 8 everybody has to hear what we’re saying was placed at next table.

    This has been a go to place for us. So i am sorry about this review. We sat outside in patio. Two greeters discussed which table we would get for about 5 minutes. And it was empty. The server forgot the anchovies on my salad. The person who brings food to table offered us another tables entrees. The pasta with lobster was awesome! But the fettuccini just covered the bottom of the bowl. For $49 you could serve a generous portion of pasta. i can make a great meal home. A restaurant needs to be about more than no cooking and no dishes to wash. Don't carry entrees around till you find the correct table. Don't skimp on pasta. Train your staff. There are lots of great restaurants in the gables. PS Your chef can really cook! the Miami spice pasta with shrimp was amazing.

    Delicious eggplant and homemade pasta. The calamari was a little chewy and the zucchini in the dish was very soggy and greasy. Our server Michael was amazing! She was very attentive and clearly enjoyed making our evening wonderful.

    Met a friend for lunch. It was such a pleasant experience. Hostess was gracious. Service as impeccable. The waiter was able to thoroughly answer our questions about the menu as well as the wine list. We both ordered pasta and was not disappointed. It was absolutely delicious. And the dessert (chocolate cake) was sinfully good. Looking forward visiting again but with my husband who loves pasta. I have also shared my pleasant experience with some of my other friends. It you are interested in sharing a delightful time with friends or family and enjoy a delicious meal, service and ambience, this is the place.

    The place is beautiful, and the service is great. We took the buffet for breakfast and it was nice but I would have preferred more variety. The hotel is really an experience my only comment is that when the birthday cake was delivered it had a little hair on it and it was disappointing
