Dined with friends at this restaurant in the Marriott Hotel, and was very disappointed. Restaurant probably adequate for the business traveller who prefers dining in. Better restaurants within easy walking distance. My rack of lamb was overpriced and merely adequate. Would admit that other members of our party did seem to enjoy their selections from a very limited menu. Service,... More

We have eaten at this restaurant quite often. The food is excellent and the service is excellent. In addition the ambience is superb.

Arriving at Orlando Marriott Lake Mary a day early for the annual Florida Writers Association conference, FWA’s Celebrity Author and I enjoyed an evening meal on October 16. I chose sautéed Chicken Medallions, rice pilaf, with goat cheese and sundried tomato cream sauce, for $18. Though pricey, the cost is considerably less than area restaurants, Shula’s, and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.... More

Reservations recommended for this delicious Sunday brunch. We were seated promptly and offered champagne or mimosa's. Omlette and beef carving stations were a highlite of the terrific food choices. I thought the price was in line considering the included beverage. Our server couldn't have been nicer. The decor is fantastic with Dale Chilhuly glass decorating the walls & ceiling.

This restaurant has great decor and great lunch meals to choose from. The choices fit every appetite and the cost is reasonable. I recently had my daughter-in-laws baby shower here and the staff was excellent! The food was tasty and the portions were enough. The atmosphere was pleasant and modern. If you're in the lake Mary area do stop by.

For those with an expense account and expandable waistlines, pig out at Bistro 1501's Sunday brunch, which has a carving station, and enough food for a small nation. All this is under megalithic Chihuly glass-art chandeliers. The Marriott's entire common area is adorned with museum quality Chihuly art.
