Great sangria

Both the service and the food was great here, however the best part of the night was the homemade sangria the waitress suggested. We went on a Sunday evening at 6pm and had reservations however I don't think we needed them since the restaurant was pretty empty.

Recently visited. Lovely decor in bustling Pointe Orlando. They validate fully for valet parking, which is a nice touch. All of the dishes were tasty. Salads are not that large. Coconut shrimp was an excellent appetizer. Macadamia crusted snapper was to die for. Service on the other hand could be improved. Wine was served with floating cork, water service was... More

Thank you for your comments, much appreciated and I will use them to make our staff better. I am glad that you enjoyed the food but we should have been sharper on the service side and I apologize for that. Please contact me and I will make it up to you. Thanks, Bryan More

Supper for my husband and I. The shrimp and scallop plate was perfect. The fish tacos were plentiful. The fried green tomatoes and crab cake appetizers hit the spot. The artichoke appetizer was a disappointment for which the waiter took it off the bill and offered an appetizer coupon for the next time. This was more than fair, as the... More

Suggestions: Crab Cake Appetizer, Fish Tacos Price: $20-$25 entree (price can easily climb depending on drinks etc) Pros: The quality of ingredients is always top of the line, the service is impeccable, the combinations of ingredients are both unique and wonderful, they have outside seating. Cons: A little on the expensive side but the quality really is worth it 100%... More

We had a great team dinner here! 10 - teenagers and their parents, our reservation had to get moved up by 1/2 hour and they were so accommodating! We ate in a private room that was perfect. Our two servers: Julie and Keith were excellent! So many times servers get overwhelmed with a large group and separate check- not with... More

I hosted a business dinner at Tommy Bahamas while in Orlando for a convention. We were looking for an upscale dinning option that was also casual and not stuffy...Tommy Bahamas delivered! Everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was great - attentive, but not overbearing. I would definitely recommend this location.

We stopped here for an early Happy Hour and were not disappointed! Tommy Bahama's food and service is consistently great. One of my favorite appetizers is the Scallop Sliders. They are to die for! We also had the pulled pork quesadillas and they too were delicious - very flavorful. Our cocktails were equally wonderful - I had a Pommegrante Martini... More

During a business trip some of my colleagues suggested me to pay a visit to Tommy Bahama's. I was at the Orlando convention center for a meeting so I decided to visit the restaurant during my lunch break. The staff is super friendly and welcomed me and offered me a table in their patio. All the appetizers are great, specially... More

This place was a great surprise. Who knew that Tommy Bahama not only had great clothing but an awesome restaurant. The food was great, the service was impeccable and the waiter explained everything. We loved this place and will be sure to visit again on our next trip to Orlando.
