We had the courtyard to ourselves, the perfect spot to celebrate our 10th anniversary in covid-safe style. Our service was impeccable and food and beverage delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Overall a nice dinner. A little loud although tables were spaced well over 6 feet apart. Food was fine, nothing exceptional. Service was okay - had to find persons for water several times, wrong meal delivered to table and wine selected not available, chose alternative, however served at wrong temperature.

The courtyard is an amazing place to have lunch. The water fountain makes it very relaxing. Food and service are great. Highly recommend the express lunch. For $25 you get a three meal course!

We have been to sunday brunch many times. Well, this should not be announced with "sunday brunch", since it is only having lunch in one part of the restaurant, the staff were 2 people. The menu the same for more than a year. Food always good. It was a disappointment.
I would always recommend it and I do, but during this pandemic, no.

The service and food were very good, and we will most definitely be back. The only issue we had were the fans that were running and were quite loud. I'm sure that there was a reason for them running. The only other issue was OpenTable as they emailed me to cancel our reservation, and we still don't know why. We spoke with Ernesto with The Biltmore and he took care of it for us right away.

We booked the Biltmore Hotel for one night on our way to Antigua to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We made our reservation for dinner at Fontana and made sure they new we were celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We were seated on the Patio. It took 10-12 minutes for even the server to come to our table (it wasn't busy). The Eggplant starter was more of an entree than a starter. The coloring of the sauce was orange which did not look appetizing. It was ok, but would not recommend. Balsamic Vinegar and Olive oil was served with what they called Foccacia Bread which was not freshly made. It has lost is fluffiness somewhere and the Olive Oil was rancid having a bitter tasting finish. My wife's Veal Marsala dish was good with a large portion of veal. I ordered the Porchetta which was ok, I've had much better. For dessert we had gelato which was on the house. It was very difficult to get our Server's attention and he never came bay to refill our wine glasses. We ordered 2 bottles of wine which was self serve apparently. For a 5 star Hotel and the grandeur of the Biltmore we expected much more.

La Fontana courtyard is very charming and that is one of the reasons we picket La Fontana to celebrate our anniversary since indoors dining is not a choice now due to the pandemia. In spite of the very hot weather, it was not hot at all, it was bearable for me. They had fans and that helped. We had risotto with seafood and it was good, it had plenty of seafood. It took more that 40 mins. to be served but some types of rice need more tine than others and that may be the reason for the delay.

Food was very good, staff were friendly, and a Beautiful setting. We were celebrating our anniversary and had brought a special bottle of wine from the year we got married. The corkage fee and valet parking fee were more than we were expecting.

Horrendous experience. there's really no way to describe just how bad a job they did.The waiter didn't even come to the table to take our order for an hour and it took another hour for our appetizers. Finally, after a very long wait, we canceled our main course order because it was so late we weren't even hungry anymore and wanted to go for a walk. They really couldn't have dropped the ball more. it was more than just an off night. Horrendous service, defensive when we kindly asked them to help us have a better experience and management was nowhere to be found. Never going back
