    I guess in one word I would say "Meh". The food is just not anything memorable. I had the fish and chips and it was one thick piece of fish. Malt vinegar was not provided - should have asked for it. Catsup is rationed in ramekins so if you want more, you have to ask for it. My wife got the shrimp toast and said it wasn't very good. The Tavern Cake seemed like anything but scratch. Prices are high as well. There are way better dining options at The Biltmore Estate.

    We sat on the patio, perfect weather and the service was great. Loved the ambiance since there was a band playing nearby. Biltmore wines are great, food was good, not with writing home about :). Great if you’re staying on the property, not worth the drive if you’re not.

    Waitress was nice but slow . Food quality was poor to fair and not worth having to make a reservation for when you can walk in most places and get better quality food prepared properly. The drinks were also extremely weak and we are not drinkers . Kind of disappointed!

    Cedric's has an atmosphere conducive to relaxation, especially after the rigorous, and often hot, tour of Biltmore Estate. It was wonderful to sit down and cool off, and with a limited menu and high prices, one would expect well executed fare. However, it was not. For drinks, I had a mule, refreshing, but quite small for the price. We then split what turned out to be a terrible roast beef sandwich, though very similar to the over cooked "steak-umm" my mother made years ago. The roll was of poor quality, and the overall result was clearly not what the menu promised - and for $21.00. We think it's not complicated to use high-quality roast beef, and baguette, as well as fresh vegetables. Being a part of the Biltmore experience should ensure value. Our service was excellent - but a limited menu should be as well.

    $38 steak dinner served cold. Another server was more attentive and helpful than our server. The restaurant was uncomfortably cold. We were there for 1 1/2 hrs and the restaurant wasn’t busy. Very disappointing!!

    We had lunch reservations at 12:30 during our very busy day at the Biltmore estate. We received a couple of text reminders about our reservation which was nice although we had it clearly in mind. We were seated as soon as we arrived and our waiter, Chris, was very friendly, professional and efficient. We were served quite quickly (but not rushed) which allowed us to get back on our way to our next stop, the Monet experience, with a few extra minutes to check out the shops.

    As Biltmore passholders, we requested a particular table. We arrived for our reservation. There were three parties seated in the entire restaurant, and one of them was in the table we asked for. Then, we were actively eating when the server asked if we wanted a box. So rude. We felt rushed and unappreciated. Again, the restaurant was mostly empty!

    Have eaten here many times over the years. this was the first really bad meal I have had here. But it was truly awful. Dry and tough roast beef, no taste and could hardly eat it. Not much on the sandwich. Perhaps it was last week's and that's all they had. Can't believe a chef cooked this??

    I would not go back and would not recommend it to others visiting or staying at biltmore. I ordered the shepherds pie and it was underseasoned and oily. My husband had the fish and chips and it was very very greasy. I got the sangria and it was probably the worst sangria I have had. My husband ordered the seasonal old fashion - it was good but also $25. They were very very busy. Despite our reservation made weeks in advance, it was over an hour wait to sit outside. They take reservations until 815 but close at 830pm. It was very odd. The servers were pleasant but obviously overwhelmed.

    Great fish & Chips. Chef’s special of Beet Cavatapi with Goat Cheese and Chicken was to die for. Be sure to get the onion dip with chips. The dip is spectacular and you will run out of chips before dip. Just ask for more chips and you will have some to take home. Good service and on Friday nights there is live music across from the patio. Visit the amazing railway exhibit just across from the restaurant; it’s great for kiddos and adults alike.

    I’m not sure I can give an accurate review because the night we had dinner at Cedric’s it was pouring down rain. Also, I didn’t have a clear picture of what type of restaurant Cedric’s was before booking. I was very overdressed for this very casual establishment. We would have been much better off having dinner at the restaurant at the Inn. I’ll know next time.

    Cedric's was OK, not great but good. Like most any tourist dining experience you would find at Disney or the like, overpriced for good, not great food. The food came out fast and the server was polite. The drinks were not refilled until the end of the meal. If you are going to be on the property and need a quick bite then this will do.
