"This was my first time at Food Wine and Co. I found the hostess that sat me not too friendly and businesslike and the server preoccupied with something else (could not figure out what). The food was good. Beet salad, and fried chicken sandwich. Both were good. Beet salad is a small portion but tasty. This is a good lunch spot but would like the staff to be friendlier and at least appear to be happy I am spending my money there."

"The waiter pushed the buffet over and over. The buffet is good if you are hungry or want variety, but I had a burger and a side salad. Both were standard Marriott quality. Overall, the food was good. The service was decent (besides the "you want the buffet" over and over). Also, note the hotel makes a local ketchup that tastes sweet like cocktail sauce."

Famed Napa Valley restaurateur Donna Scala has created one of Orlando’s hottest new restaurants with La Luce®, serving Italian favorites -- including homemade pasta, flatbread pizzas and dreamy regional specialties -- all inspired by traditional family recipes that have been perfected through the generations. <br /><br><br><br />Orlando magazine food critic Joseph Hayes said La Luce (pronounced lah-looch-ay) has placed the hotel on “Orlando’s culinary map,” proclaiming it one of the city’s best new restaurants. And his enthusiasm didn’t center solely on its “tasty and quirky” (his words) regional Italian fare, either. He was equally impressed with the service: “it’s as crisp as the bed linens in the hotel upstairs,” he raved.

"I was a bit surprised by the prices and quality at La Luce at the Hilton Bonnet Creek. The service was good, food was good and prices were ok. They also have a good wine list with decent prices also.
I ordered a dessert off the menu (chocolate ice cream) and the server went and found some at 1030pm. Not a compliant or a hesitation. Great experience."

A commitment to fresh, flavorful, seasonal American with a unique concept of time-honored Regional seafood specialties. Chef Gray's culinary focus will be on the coastal regions from Maine to Florida.

"As hotel restaurants go, I like Todd's. The menu is simple, the prices are ok and the service is good. I had the rib and grits. Very good. My only issue is that the ice cream selection is limited to vanilla and chocolate. For a restaurant that portrays itself as edgy, that is pretty bland. My friends had the chicken. Both were pleased with it. Decent chicken portion and lots of veggies.
Also, watch out for the bar noise. The bar, next to the restaurant, has a vibrant happy hour crowd. Until 630 or 7p, do not expect to have a conversation in the restaurant."

"Buca is a chain that provides consistent Italian food at decent prices. I had the lasagna which was ok. Good service and a friendly crowd. I also had a glass of Greystone wine which cost more than the lasagna dinner entrée so watch out for the drink prices. Overall, it was a decent $26 meal (one entrée and one glass of wine), no app or dessert."

The Derby is more than a restaurant. Established in 1922, it has been family owned and operated since 1951. It is a grand museum showcasing some of horse racing's greatest moments. Diners are invited to take a break from the rush of modern life and travel back to the time of George Woolf, Seabiscuit and relive the excitement of <u>The Race of the Century</u>. We excel in offering the best grades of meat and extremely fresh seafood prepared by our longtime executive chef that would delight even the most discriminating of taste. Some of the menu highlights include the Bacon Wrap Filet, Delmonico New York, Prime Rib and Shrimp Scampi. We offer a wide selection of wines by the bottle and by the glass. Relax and enjoy a fine cognac or single malt scotch on our patio, or take in a sporting event on one of our three new plasma screen television sets. Dining at The Derby can only be compared to the feeling of holding the winning ticket when you smile and know that you made the right bet.

"Had lunch with friends at The Derby. It was restaurant week and the Derby specials for this week were great. I had the crab cakes, cobb salad and crab cakes. All were very good. Service was good and professional. I enjoy The Derby and it is great for special occasions and times when you want a really good meal."

This is American Regional Cuisine at its classic, pub-inspired best. The food is fun and what we like to call “approachable”. You’ll also enjoy some twists on the classics with taste-inspired ideas like our Dirty Caesar Salad and Greek Turkey Burger. At the American Tap Room we believe in using local ingredients as much as possible and, yes, everything we serve goes well with beer.<br /><br />Ranging from weekend brunch, to a casual lunch outing or an after-work gathering in our bar, each dining experience is uniquely enjoyable.<br /><br />Enjoy your time with us on our outdoor patio, inside by the fireplace, or by booking a private event.

"Had dinner at Paladar on Friday night. The food was good with lots of different choices and options. The drinks were smallish but good. The issue was the service. It started off good with the server getting drink orders and appetizers relatively quickly. The seafood ceviche is very good. A small portion, but good. The next hour our server was missing in action. The drinks were done, the appetizers finished, and no server to order entrees. Every once in a while, she would glide by and apologize but still not take the order. The restaurant was pretty full, but there is no excuse for almost an hour of no attention. So, overall a good experience but not if you are in a hurry."

"First time at MHBC. The service was not good (trying not to say terrible). Waited 20 minutes for water, another 15 for menus, and another 15 or so for drinks. Was there almost an hour before ordering food. Three waiters walked by us, waved at us, asked how we were but provided no service (eg. they would ask how we were, would respond that we would like drinks, the server would walk away and not return). Very odd.
The menu is very interesting with lots of different sausages (made on site), beers and pizzas. Had the lamb appetizer, "fig and pig" pizza, kielbasa, and chocolate cake dessert. All were very good.
