We had a girls' weekend this weekend at the Ritz Carlton Orlando. Dinner here was the highlight. We had the June tasting menu with wine pairings. Every course was unforgettable and the wine pairings were perfect. The service was amazing. Fernando took great care of us and explained every course. Mustafa assisted him perfectly. The evening flowed well and the... More

The title says it all. From the onset, our waiter Paul had an attitude. He was patronizing, did not get the orders correct, our host told him to put all the first order of drinks on his bill. Paul failed to do that. His attitude bordered on surly. Someone in our party made the comment " I think he hates... More

Norman's is a very good restaurant. The menu is interesting and the food very good. Service is outstanding. We had fried green tomatoes, a great conch chowder, Grouper and Snapper. A keylime cheesecake was terrific and there are some reasonably priced wines on the list. That said, for some reason, unless I was staying in the hotel, I am not... More

Everything was superb. The room was lovely, the service outstanding and the food luscious. The lamb chops were outstanding and the heirloom tomato salad was hard to beat but the corn chowder(an odd choice for me but intriguing) simply delicious. Followed by a wonderful creme brulee made for a perfect meal. Our server, Paul, is a true professional and added... More

This was our 2nd visit to Normans. The first visit left us feeling somewhat indifferent. An interesting menu but an uncanny number of items were over seasoned which gave us the lingering thought of being over-priced for the quality. On our first visit - as well as the 2nd visit - service was exceptional, but the dining room seemed a... More

Lots of fish options, a pork option was really good, and the night I was there they had a filet option that was very very tender. Very pricey, but to be expected, I guess

This is best restaurant in the Orlando area. The food is amazing and such a wide variety of menu items. Try the tasting menu and sit on the terrace and watch the sunset over the water and gold course. The service from the all is flawless and they have amazing attention to detail. The entire staff from the General Manager... More
