Description: The vibrant colors of Bistro 1501 are cleverly disguised in the lobby of the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary. The contemporary room with its jazzy decor and art accents is the perfect place to relax while enjoying tempting delicacies from Chef William Young. The discriminating palate will be treated to rich and vivid flavors. Our dinner menu features fresh seafood, steaks grilled to perfection and desserts to satisfy any palette. Bistro 1501 is the perfect place for a quiet lunch meeting in our private dining room or the casual luncheon with friends. Join us for the most important meal of day, the power breakfast. We serve everything from Starbucks lattes to made order omelets. On Sunday's you can enjoy our award winning Sunday Buffet Brunch, voted four years in a row best brunch in Seminole County. Brunch is every Sunday 11am-2pm. Bistro 1501 provides the perfect opportunity to temp the taste buds and linger over a sumptuous dinning experience.

I never feel good about the in-house restaurant and I only ate here because I got in late. I had an arugula salad and then this tall bacon, leek, and cheddar tart that was part quiche, part souffle. It was soooo good. I tried to get the recipe from them - no success. I tried to have it again on Sunday for lunch, but they only serve brunch. So I am still hoping that I can make the tart, but can't figure out how they did it. If you're there, try this tart. The arugula salad that comes with it (I didn't know) is too sweet. The appetizer arugula salad is totally worth it. I picky so a 5-star from me is like a 7-star from others.

This area of town already has it's own "Restaurant Row" starting, but that doesn't stop this Bistro from standing out. Quiet on a Friday night unlike the nearby chain restaurants, which makes for an intimate setting with a very attentive and kind wait staff as well as really, really good food. My only regret is that we had no room for dessert.

We'll be going there again.

We went to Bistro 1501 for Valentines day. The food was above average and a bit more fancy than chain restaurants. They have great desserts. They are very polite there and the service is great! It is a small setting with dim lights. It is inside the Marriot Hotel, so not many people know about it. I would definately would recommend this place.
