“Very slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2010

This place could be a goldmine except for the very slow and lack of good service. The food and atmosphere are very nice, We went on a Friday night when they have live music playing. The music was nice, the food was good and nicely presented on the plate but our server was absent most of our dinner. She never came by to see if there was anything we needed other than to put the plates on the table.
When we complained to the owner that our food took too long ( we were there 2 hours before the main meal arrived) he said that everything is made to order from scratch and it all takes time.
If we go back again, we will be sure to order the second we get there so it doesn't take so long, and we will ask for a different waiter.

“Food was good! Service was terrible.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2010

Upon arriving we were seated in a corner, after 20 minutes I had to find the waitress to place our drink order. Then waited 15-20 minutes for her return! Waited 50 minutes for salad, then had to request silverware to eat it. Another 35 minutes for the meals to arrive. Manager did respond to my wifes call, was all about excuses why the service was so poor. This was a special occasion, and was my wifes selection for her and my 75 yr old mother's birthday dinner. Beware!!!!!!!!!!

“Fresh and delicious, varied menu items hand crafted!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2009

The Coconut Mahi is outstanding! The Lasagna served beautifully on a bed of rose sauce, delicious, too! Delano on the Park is a wonderful restaurant to enjoy with family and friends, the pace is leisurely so you can enjoy your conversation, too. The live music is very enjoyable and a great mix of songs including some seasonal which was very nice, too. Delano has a side room for private party reservation which we have used and works well with large groups. The outdoor park frontage seating is lovely and off street. You may bring your dog and enjoy an outdoor meal.

“A RESTAURANT THAT HAS IT ALL" EVEN A VIEW OVERLOOKING THE PARK"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2009

Found this charming restaurant at the beginning of my vacation and became a regular visitor, friendly staff excellent food, The menu choices were a pleasant change from all the usual foods served in Orlando, The Lasagne was to die for , and the mahi mahi was the best Ever. would certainly recommend this Restaurant whatever the occassion.
Also had plenty of outside seating.
