This restaurant is really beautiful but don't hope to sit at the prettiest seat in the restaurant because it is reserved for the general manager/owner of the hotel even if he is not in the restaurant for the day. Imagine the arrogance of the man...More

Yes, you can use multiple vouchers. . . The reservation goes on one name/credit card just to hold the reservation but once you are there, just tell them you have 2 vouchers. Enjoy! It's great!

Description
One of the few remaining Miami locales offering traditional English afternoon tea, the Biltmore is arguably the most elegant venue, with its soaring vaulted ceiling, magnificent lobby and majestically mantled fireplace. The refreshing repast is served daily and is complemented with and elegant harp weekdays and music of an accomplished classical guitarist on the weekends. During the holiday season guests can expect themed pastries.Reservations are recommended.
