The wait staff makes the food come to life with their descriptions. Great food from local sources and good drinks to accompany the food.

Amazing food, great wait-staff, and the atmosphere was fantastic. Our large group of almost 30 was well tended to, and the service was friendly and prompt.

The dishes are unique and well worth the experience to try something outside the box! I had a Rabbit Ragu with Cavatelli...so fresh and the broth unlike anything I have tasted in the past. The cocktails where a wonderful addition to our meal & the service was spot on. Definitely going for another visit!

My waiter was amazing, he anticipated our needs and was very professional in his interaction with us. We were visiting Orlando when we stumbled upon Rusty Spoon. I was pleasantly surprised that the food tasted so fresh and flavorful. We ate there on two consecutive nights because the quality of the food was better than other restaurants that we've tried...

Had two meals here whilst at a meeting in Orlando. Both food and service excellent, good to have service which was at a measured pace rather than rushed, all too typical in US. Party sizes were 3 and 26 and both accommodated well. Highly recommended if in downtown Orlando.

Dined alone tonight so I sat at the bar. Great service, excellent specials. Had a beet salad and the sheepshead fish based on the bartender's recommendation. Both were excellent. Fresh ingredients and great flavors!

The rusty spoon is a great place to enjoy wonderfully prepared in season dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. The food was super, the waiter Brandon was polite and informative and the drinks and dessert to die for! The cost was a bit higher than expected but well worth it. Located a on Church Street in a cool area of downtown... More

We had a number of meals at various Disney restaurants and they were fine.... but it was nice to get out of the resort area and into downtown Orlando! Right now there is a great prix fixe menu as well as a nicely-rounded menu. Two of our party enjoyed the oysters, one a prix fixe and one a fresh and... More

Looked for spots near my hotel and wondered down popular Church Street in downtown Orlando to The Rusty Spoon after checking out their website. Focus is on seasonal, locally procured ingredients and was lucky that my visit aligned with Orlando's version of restaurant week (called Magical Dining?) with a 3-course prie fixes menu. Ordered one of their signature cocktails, the... More
