    Service was not terrific. It was very difficult to get a server's attention to refill my coffee cup. There was only one croissant on the display tray and the server said he would get more but they never appeared. I would recommend the Fontana for convenience and ambience.

    I have been dining at La Fontana for many years but the last 2 years it has been a disappointment. I keep going because it is a nice hotel and it has that old Mediterranean charm but I doubt that I will return for anniversaries and birthdays. My husband asked for a salad and Lasagna and he said it was good even though he would have preferred a larger portion for the price My niece asked for Ravioli Di Aragosta with crab and lobster. She said it was very good. I asked for DENTICE DALLA CODA GIALLA, supposedly yellow tail, roasted mashed potatoes, sautéed asparagus, lemon caper sauce. I said supposedly because it was either an imitation of yellow tail or that fish was very old. Totally tasteless. I didn't return it because I wanted to keep a happy spirit for my birthday and I decided to dip the pieces in the lemon sauce so I could swallow it. The mashed potatoes and the asparagus were bland. I thought that for $46 I was going to have a good fish but it was not the case. It is a shame because they used to serve really good fish. On a positive note, I was given a choice of a complementary dessert for my birthday and I chose the ricotta cheesecake and I liked it a lot. The waiter was very pleasant.

    The hostess station had 3 people at it but they all ignored us and it seemed completely disorganized. When we got our dishes we had to send back the lobster because it was so dry.

    The food was expensive but I expected that. You would expect an expensive restaurant to have several daily off menu specials. Other than a soup of the day (chicken noodle) there were none. The dinner options were limited. The lobster was dry and tasteless. Spaghetti and meatballs was good but I’ve had much better and much less expensive restaurants. Ask for butter for your bread and instead of whipped butter you get margarine in little packets. This is a 5* destination hotel. The food has to be better. The ambiance was okay but nothing special.

    Very dissatisfied with the response from the restaurant staff specially the manager, who didn’t care about the noise of a worker drilling some plywood, right next to our table! In many occasions we brought the attention to the staff but they didn’t care. We had to asked for the check and leave sooner than expected. The owner was having lunch at the same time, inside the restaurant and didn’t seem to care for his customers dinning outside in the patio with such an annoying and disturbing noise that we could not even hear ourselves talking. Very bad experience. Will not go back ever again.

    Don’t fall for the description they use that includes the word “sophisticated” because it’s anything but that… Extensive wine list… Not that either. Lower your expectations so you’re not disappointed.

    The meal was great, the waiter looked a bit distracted even though it wasn’t that busy. The atmosphere was nice and inviting. We ordered the yellow tail and the salmon, both very delicious. However the mellanzane was a bit over cooked and tasted like it was heated up in a microwave. Not what we expected at the Biltmore. Overall nice place to visit.

    We spent a pleasant evening dining outdoor. They did not have the German Riesling we ordered from the wine list, but we were satisfied with the substitution. The soup of the day (always the same soup offered in previous visits), pasta and risotto dishes we ordered were all very good. Portions were generous.

    I love La Fontana at the Biltmore. It has a nice indoor dining space, but what I like most is the open air of the courtyard. I like it's timeless Mediterranean ambiance. I usually order the salmon, but yesterday I had the snapper, served over perfectly cooked asparagus spears with a tangy lemon sauce and garlic mashed potatoes. For steak lovers, if you order the filet Mignon, the portion is huge. Our waiter yesterday was very friendly and provided great service. We topped off the meal with decaf coffee, but a month ago I shared a slice of the plain cheesecake with my friend, and it was excellent.

    Breakfast only. Lovely venue. Great coffee. Something about the pancakes was “off.” Sour. Eggs oily. Server in a hurry. Careless attention. Was warned that we’d be under a ceiling - as if it was inferior. It was fine, but lots of open space in the courtyard. Nevertheless, this is a spectacular historic venue. Bummer the food was pretty far under “wow.”
