We were staying at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort from July 2 - July 7. We decided to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary at The Land Remembered on Sunday, July 6. We shared the chateaubriand. steak dinner for two. We also ordered a bottle of wine. The service was excellent, and the food was delectable. We truly enjoyed our anniversary dinner. We will be back!

It looks like the kind of place where the people would be snooty, but they are not. We dined on a Friday evening with two small children. They were very busy but the staff was accommodating and very friendly. Food was all delicious.

For about 13 years, as Florida residents, we have been searching for what we consider a true five star restaurant in Central Florida. One that really knows how to prepare Pittsburgh style rare filet mignon as well as Maryland style jumbo lump, crab cakes, fried oysters, and lobster tails. In fact, every entrée on their menu was extraordinary. We have dined at the Land Remembered restaurant several times in the last couple of months and we were never disappointed. In particular, Joseph Thomas, manager, is a most gracious host and his entire staff is very accommodating. Every dining detail was a pleasure. We have always been very pleased.

We chose this restaurant for a special occasion dinner after reading many reviews and a couple of personal recommendations. While very good, we felt that considering the cost, a few things might have been a bit better. We chose the Chateaubriand for the main entre and lobster mac & cheese as a side.

Initially we were sat at a table within full few and hearing range of the TV in the bar. For a special occasion, we were not into a sports bar scene (World cup futbol was playing). We requested and were given a more quiet table. We recommend that a soundproof partition be installed between the dining area and the bar to protect the ambiance of the dining experience.

The quality of the food was excellent. We have never had a more tender steak! However, the presentation could be improved for a high class (price) restaurant.

The lobster mac & cheese was ordered because we had recently experienced an excellent version at a nearby competitor. The competitor's version was better.

The Chateaubriand was served tableside as it should be, but without any fanfare or special effects. We suggest that the meat be flambed with cognac or similar tableside before serving. The garlic mashed potatoes were excellent, but were just sort of dumped on the plate like, well, potatoes. There are numerous more innovative ways to serve such a simple food in order to make it special.

We were treated to an excellent and complimentary, but very rich chocolate cake desert to finish the meal. A nice touch.

In summary, we were not disappointed with our meal, but feel that for the price it might have been just a little bit more inventive and innovative, with more effort put into the presentation. Management should not be satisfied with what they are doing. It can be improved with a little more effort.
