Fantastic service!

My husband and I went with my cousin and her husband and our grandparents last night. Marco was our server and he was fantastic. Our grandpa moves at a much slower pace now and Marco was so patient and attentive to him. The food was delicious. All of the ladies ordered the filet and it... read more

One of the best steak's I've had in my life! Try the Top Sirloin, you will not be disappointed! The baked potato is delicious as well! Can't wait to come again.

We visited Linda's at the very strong recommendation of a business associate. We were not disappointed. My wife and I arrived at 5:30 with a reservation. The Orlando traffic was brutally horrible at that hour. Service was prompt and our table was waiting. I chose their french onion soup. It was quite good, piping hot. My wife has the Filet... More

I travel for work every week, I have eaten at the best steak houses in New York, and Chicago. If your looking for great steaks, you are a fool not to eat here. The sides and the atmosphere are average at best, however the steaks are unbeatable for the price. This place is an institution in Orlando,make sure to give... More

La Cantina is an Orlando fixture since the 1950's. The reason they are still in business and still recommend reservations is due the delicious way they have of pan searing their steaks - OUTSTANDING!

I have been coming here for decades as is true of many of it's patrons. It is very busy and can be crowded and noisy. It is so good, however, that it is still worth going to even if you have to wait. Reservations are very well advised. The steaks and Italian food are especially good. The marinated T-bone is... More

The service is always great and our server Jesse is the greatest. Food is fresh and always consistently good. Sitting around the fire coming out of the water from the fountain in the lounge area is special.

They never advertise so only locals know of this oldest restaurant in Orlando. Their steaks are wonderful, salad fresh and herb dressing just right. Chocolate cake for dessert. Keep it simple, not a cluttered menu. Steaks are the important item here and you have several sizes and types to select from. Our go-to restaurant for out of town guests and... More

I have hundreds of steaks in hundreds of restaurants and this takes first place. The top sirloin is my favorite, 18 oz just hits the spot. AND the spaghetti, steak fries and house salad dressing are all amazing. Karen is the perfect hostess,makes me feel right at home and Steve is maybe the best waiter in Orlando. This my safe... More
