    We dined on the outside patio on a beautiful evening …service was outstanding and the food was exceptional…highly recommend the trio of artisanal bread as well as the tomato soup. Caesar salads were fresh and crisp and our party ordered a mix of entrees including the filet mignon, lamb loin and duck breast. Every meal was cooked to the temperature requested, after dinner coffees,espressos and cappuccinos were delicious. Only one dessert was consumed which was the crème brûlée and it was shared. A wonderful experience all around…highly recommend !

    Great place to dine when on the Biltmore Estate. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. One of our entrees came with vegetables that were pickled, which was a little bit of a surprise. The strong vinegar taste took away from the main entree, red snapper. The snapper and the ribeye steak (on our other entree were really tasty.

    Another great experience at Biltmore's bistro for our wedding anniversary. Went to the Wine Club for a drink beforehand. Lemar was our server and he did a great job. I had the Steak Frittes special and the meat was perfectly done medium rare. My wonderful wife had the Braised Lamb and it was equally good. We had the Tempranillo which has always been a good go-to at Bistro. no dessert due to Lent. Used the passholder discount for 10% off. Very affordable for the service, meal, and ambiance. We'll definitely be back.

    Isabella was a wonderful, friendly and attentive waitress. We are both vegetarian and wish there was a better entree option. The cheese plate was excellent and we both really like the French onion soup. But the vegan Pot Au Fue was not great, just ok. Some of the carrots were still raw. Dessert was great, Financier Cake. We Highly recommend this restaurant.

    Our visit was the evening of my husband's 75th birthday. The food was beyond delicious...duck and ribeye...presentation was delightful and the portions were not overwhelming. Three different slices of cake to share, with the Oreo cheesecake being the favorite. Wines, of course, were excellent, adding their special touch to our dinner. However, the highlight of the evening was our server, Bobby! Attentive, awesome, friendly and ready with encouraging information regarding the menu. We had requested a server with personality, who would make our evening even more special. The lady at the front desk certainly complied by seating us in Bobby's area. Absolutely, a FIVE star evening at The Bistro. Thank you, Bobby.
