Contemporary American
The Bistro is located on the grounds of the Biltmore Estate, right next door to Biltmore's award-winning winery. Please be aware that you must have a valid paid estate admission ticket, be staying at Inn on Biltmore Estate or Village Hotel, or be a Biltmore Annual Passholder to dine on property. Please note that due to limited seating availability we are unable to accept reservations for our patio. All patio seating is assigned on a first come first served basis.

The Bistro features contemporary American fare. Fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients are the focus on the dinner menu, which features premium steaks, impeccable mountain trout and seafood, poultry and lamb. Chef Daniel Polk creates contemporary bistro-inspired recipes featuring estate–raised products and locally grown produce. Gardens on the estate produce a wide array of vegetables and fruits throughout the seasons, and our extensive pasture lands provide all-natural, hormone-free Black Angus beef and lamb.

We enjoyed our dinner. It was a little chilly next to the window and was a little too loud for us sitting across from one another to enjoy a leisurely evening with conversation. However, the service was great and the food was excellent.

The dinner menu was limited and very expensive. Waitress wasn’t honest about portion size this causing us to over order and bring the cost up. Very disappointed as we could only afford soup and appetizer/ salad.

Great service and the filet mignon on was one of the best I’ve ever had. Also loved the creme brûlée and toffee coffee. I dined by myself and enjoyed every minute of it!

Although everything was very nice and the food was delicious, we were hoping to have one of the famous Bistro pizzas. They are only on the lunch menu. It’s a wonderful place to have a meal after going to the winery and we would definitely eat there again!

Trout really had no taste and was very greasy. I believe our waitress was having a bad day. The hostess acted bothered by my asking if there was a ladies room on the main floor. Overall not a great experience. I was disappointed.

Everything was great - only complaint was that the dining area we were in was packed a bit tight. Had to do some chair Tetris at times to maneuver. Waitstaff was excellent, food was delicious and timely.

As a retired hospitality professional who worked and consulted in the restaurant industry for many years, this restaurant was outstanding. Not only was all the food excellently prepared and presented, but also the staff was professional, friendly, and engaging. There have been very few times in my nearly 50 years in business and traveling that I have encountered such excellence. My hat is off to The Bistro and to the Biltmore Estate in its entirety.

The food was delicious from appetizer to dessert. The staff was friendly and attentive. Our server answered questions and made great suggestions. She ambiance was really nice and we had a late dinner reservation and didn’t realize they were already closed. We never felt rushed at all. We will be back!

The food was amazing and our waiter and the manager took the time to make sure my steak frites was cooked just the way I like it. The brie appetizer is melt in your mouth good. Perfect dinner to end a wonderful day at Biltmore.

Our waiter and the staff went way out of their way to make our experience a good one. Extremely good service and very nice atmosphere. The only drawback was that it was a special valentines menu and we were limited on our choices. I was unaware of the menu options when I made the reservation but the staff called me to confirm the reservation and did inform me of the menu. They did everything right. I have had lunch there on one other occasion and it was excellent. I will definitely go there again.

Food prices high, quality low. Serve pleasant. Four course menu had poor choices and lobster was cold and mushy.
