This is a good find in Orlando! The dining room is beautiful, the service is wonderful, the food is different and delicious. We chose the tasting menu. Portions were beautifull served, and generous portions. The conch chowder is different from others I have had. It is beautiful when served, and the broth is a slightly sweet and delicious treat. The shrimp ceviche is made/served tableside. It is absolutely the best ceviche I have ever eaten. This is a non-Disney treat to be appreciated.

My boyfriend and I went here for an anniversary dinner. My goal is to eventually try every fine dining- steak & seafood restaurant in the Orlando and surrounding areas. Out of every fine dining experience I have had in Orlando, this restaurant was by far the best. I'd consider myself reasonable, but hard to impress. Everything about this restaurant was perfection: from service, to food, to drinks, to ambience. This is an amazing choice for a special occasion. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for kids, as it's upscale and more romantic. Because I reserved the table and told them it was our anniversary, they brought us champagne, a personalized menu to take home to remember the night, and dessert with a chocolate piece that had "Happy Anniversary" in script. Amazing, I would go back in a heart beat. It was not inexpensive, but definitely not overpriced, worth every penny!

One of the best restaurants in Orlando! Very small menu which is a huge plus to a restaurant and no matter what you choose will be a perfect dish! Service is excellent! Must try a cheese cart! Highly recommended!

My meal last evening can only be described as outstanding.

I chose the fried green tomatoes for a starter and the filet for my main course. The steak was cooked to perfection.

They also offer a broad selection of wines.

You must eat here during your stay at the Ritz-Carleton.

Located at the Ritz Carlton we expected a good restaurant. This was superb. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. The food, service and attendance was excellent. A great experience
