Description: Built on the foundation of fresh, locally sourced ingredients, Crimson Tavern appeals to the inner foodie in all of us. The menu, which changes seasonally, showcases a combination of small-plates along with high-quality hand crafted entrees, craft beers, and "garden to glass" cocktails. Chef Hull's team offers unique daily specials that utilize all his Lakeside Garden has to offer. Located at the Orlando Airport Marriott Lakeside, Crimson Tavern also offers a casual private dining area which seats up to 20 people. Crimson Private Dining is perfect for a corporate meeting or a casual dinner party. Parking will be validated in the Tavern.

Arrived at the Sheraton Orlando Airport around 6 pm and assumed we were in for a chain restaurant dining experience. It was getting late, so instead of taking the shuttle to a restaurant, we walked over to the Marriott next door. Dinner at the Crimson Tavern was an unbelieveable surprise. Our server, Mike, was absolutely fantastic. His enthusiasm rubbed off, but we were still leary. This only lasted until our pork empanadas arrived - great appetizer. The four of us were so happy with our meals. Order the blue cheese wedge and steak!!!! I asked for Pittsburgh style. It was delivered crisy and black on the outside and pink on the inside. It was awesome. Thank you Mike for your recommendations and telling the truth.....Crimson has great food!!!!!!

Recently remodeled at the Marriott, Crimson Tavern excels in delivering fresh, flavorful and inventive cuisine. A major reason is the sizeable chef’s garden, which we toured after dinner. Far more than herbs and chives many restaurants maintain, they rotate crops seasonally to have the freshest vegetables available for the changing menu. Eggplant, tomatoes, squash, lettuce, a full produce market just outside the door. From tapas and small plates to seafood and steaks, they blend these fresh ingredients to present truly impressive flavors. The one drawback is the very limited menu, but several daily specials offer a broader variety than the standard menu suggests.

It is a bit pricy, especially the wine, but not outrageous and certainly worth the flavor. Service was outstanding, attentive and knowledgeable. The ambiance is a little odd; servers in plaid shirts and jeans reminiscent of a saloon, the décor modern and sleek, and nothing matches the name “Tavern”, but it is comfortable and relaxed.
