Perfect service and a wonderful tasteful menu. Tables are beautifully serviced and set up for lovely views of the center fountain and surrounding decor. The chefs choices were delicious. Every meal was presented with great care and attention to detail.

Fontana is a wonderful spot for pre-theatre dining. It is located in a beautiful outdoor courtyard centered around a fountain in the Biltmore Hotel. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. We particularly enjoyed the grilled octopus and seafood salad.

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.
