Very good service. Food was OK, nothing special. Maybe my expectations were too high as I lived on the FL gulf coast for many years.

SO glad our group chose this as our last Restaurant for our 2014 trip. The wine selection is good, as is the beer (which includes many local breweries). Fresh "French" bread is served before meal - and more can be asked for. The atmosphere is nicer than casual, but does not require a suit or tie. There is outdoor seating.... More

Were staying in a condo in Winter Park and a previous guest had written in the guest book that the happy hour at Fontenot's should not be missed. So we had to try it and are glad that we did. It is a very attractive restaurant and a romantic place to have a cocktail and an appetizer. The $4 Bloody... More

This restaurant sure isn't what you'd expect to find in the Rockies, but here it is! It's decor is definitely New Orleans/Mardi Gras themed & so is (at least some) of the food. I had a shrimp po boy sandwich which was very good but could have used some more shrimp. On the small sandwich ($9) you get 4 pieces... More

My husband had the Surf and Turf and I had the Lafayette Pasta, they were both delicious! His steak was cooked exactly how he asked. The pasta was light and wonderful. Our server was great as well. We will definitely be back.

Doesn't look like much outside but you walk in and your in French quarter in n,olreans. Quite a selection of cajun inspired dishes that taste very similar to the south. The pork ribs fall off the bone. the crawfish was really tasty too. Little pricy 2 entrees with a drink and app was 66 bucks

Thanks for sharing your review, Robert! It's great to hear you were a fan of our fun decor -- we love to bring the lively New Orleans flavor to Winter Park. I'm sorry to hear that you found our prices a bit high, though -- each of our entrees also comes with a salad or soup included, so there's no... More

Fontenot's is a one of those restaurant's that does not look like much from the oustide, but has great interior atmosphere, food quality and service on the inside for the semi-casual dining excursion. Located in an old shopping center within Winter Park, Fontenot's Seafood and Grill has much to offer for everyone's taste. From the Cajun platter sampler appetizer, its... More

Wow, thank you for sharing your kind words! It was a pleasure to read your review. It sounds like the mahi mahi special knocked it out of the park, which is great.
