Description: Hemisphere offers an active, upbeat environment that engages guests' senses. Executive Chef Jeffrey Powell's seasonal menus feature hand-crafted dishes that infuse fresh, local ingredients with modern world flavors. Hemisphere also features an incredible wine selection and cuvees. We are located on the ninth floor of the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport with convenient access to downtown Orlando, the Interstate 4 business and tourism corridor, as well as the neighboring Lake Nona community. Hemisphere will be open for breakfast, dinner and special events. A great place to dine or relax before/after your flight or with complimentary valet parking, it's an unexpected but excellent option for Orlando & Lake Nona area residents!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hyatt Regency OIA and had both breakfast and dinner at Hemisphere. Breakfast was solidly good, and prices were about what I expected for a convention hotel. My husband was pleasantly impressed with the Eggs Benedict. I had the buffet and for $15 the selection was better than average. The scrambled eggs were above average and the creme brûlée French toast filled my sweets craving. Since the buffet includes coffee and juice it really is a pretty good deal. For the dinner service they switch out the linens to black and light some candles but don't expect a lot of romantic ambiance. I don't know if the staff was having an off night or if the kitchen was slow but we experienced a long wait between courses even though the restaurant wasn't overly crowded. I felt the prices were a bit on the high side overall. Everything is a la carte, the server did tell us sides are big enough to be shared - that includes the large baked potato. We both had the petit filet and scallops - a good value. The 2 scallops were excellently prepared and the filet was tender and juicy. For dessert we split the chocolate walnut caramel tiramisu which would have been much better if there had been more tiramisu and less than a full 1/2 inch of chocolate ganache on top. I wouldn't necessarily make a special trip here if you are an Orlando resident, but if you need a nice place for a meal at the airport.

We stayed at the Hyatt at Orlando International Airport on Monday evening and ate at McCoy's for dinner on Monday. We then had breakfast at Hemisphere for a terrific breakfast that was included in our room rate. The food quality and service at the Hemisphere restaurants was excellent! The food quality and quantity on the buffet were very good. Hemisphere is nice & bright place to eat with comfortable and roomy tables. The food is very well prepared and was fresh/hot. I would definitely return here for a meal - either dinner or breakfast as this place just seemed very well run.

Had the Black Grouper which was done perfectly however the portion was modest in size. Enjoyed two bottles of wine with the group of 9 and the selection was good, but marked up a bit more than other places. Service was good.
