“Management needs a wake up call”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

This was across from our hotel, and we had a large group getting together so we hoped this would be a nice option. There were only us and one other table - and we still had terrible service. The food was fine, nothing to write home again or want you to forgive the service. Now we know why we were the only ones there.....

“Great Beer, and 2 for 1 until 10pm”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

So I was in Orlando for a Conference at the OCCC, and staying at the Rosen Centre. One night getting off at the Trolley Stop, in front of the hotel, there was a kid with a sign advertising 2 for 1 drinks from 5pm - 10pm at Elegante, I ignored this that night as I was tired.

The next and my final night, I was looking through the Trolley Map book and saw a coupon for a free drink at Elegante and decided to try it. So before dinner I popped over and wasn't quite sure if the place was even open as it was deserted. Then a staff member came out and told me to grab a seat and brought me a menu.

After looking at the menu, I decided I didn't want Mediterrain Food, but would have a few drinks. i handed him my free drink coupon expecting some sort of issue, since I wasn't buying food. It was no problem and they even honored the happy hour special with my coupon, so 2 free beer!!. I then ordered another drink, at the time the bar manager was in, and she was friendly and talkative, saying that the place had been open around a year and was trying to figure out how to get the word out about the restraunt. I did tell her I saw the add in the Trolley Map and the kid with the sign.

So when it came time for my bill, the total for my 4 beers (2 free) and then a 2 for 1 for happy hour and was surprised at how cheap the beer was $4 for a pint of Blue Moon, compared to $9 at the Rosen for the same pint.

I would recommend this place for some before dinner or after dinner drinks.

They do offer Hookah for $10, but I have never tried this and didn't feel like it.
