Our waiter was not friendly and we felt rushed and like he didn’t care if we had a good experience or not. We were a party of 13 and he knew too was included is why we thought he didn’t care. Service was HORRIBLE

Excellent cuisine!! Great wait staff! We tried this place last September and decided to make the Chophouse a permanent part of our visits to Orlando (8-10 times per year).

Nice enough place. Steak was over cooked. Music was too loud and service while adequate wasn’t superior. It overall was good, but I wouldn’t rush back anytime soon.

Xmas Dinner. Food Excellent, Service very good BUT not all the people providing it wore Facial masks which was uncomfortable and dangerous due to the pandemic, they should improve it or delete the comment in the open table information to avoid surprising the guests attending tonthe restaurant.

The ambience is lovely. The staff are extremely kind and efficient. The bread was fair being both cold and dry. We ordered the escargot, which was ok. I ordered the wedge salad, which did not get eaten as it was subpar. My husband dined on the filet and it proved to be the star of the meal. It was a memorable night with the Christmas atmosphere and elegance.

We paid $400 for four of us to each their special Thanksgiving dinner. The entrees were very underwhelming. The fish and the turkey were very dry and overcooked, like they had been prepared hours before and sat in a chaffing dish. The fish was rubbery and had to be cut with a knife. The creme brûlée dessert wasn’t really creme brûlée at all, just a creme brûlée top on a baked apple that was hard to cut through. The pecan pie dessert was also tough and had to be cut with a knife. Not impressed for a very expensive meal. Wouldn’t do that again for sure. On a positive note, our waiter was very friendly and attentive!

We ate at the Venetian Chop House for Thanksgiving dinner. The meal was just outstanding for both quality and selection. You usually don't rave over salads but the two salad options - one with bibb lettuce, roquefort, etc and the second with beets and goat cheese were just outstanding. We were given 3 meat dishes plus all the accompaniments. I would have been happy with just the turkey as it was tender and moist. Best dressing I think I have ever eaten including my mom's old fashioned corn bread dressing. And the pecan tart as just one of 3 desserts provided each person would have been more than enough on its' own. Hopefully we can make the trip from Wisconsin to Orlando in time fo Thanksgiving next year!

Must begin by saying it was Thanksgiving Day. Welcome and service by Mario and his group were outstanding. Our table was outside and perfect! BUT except for the soup and salad the food was "meh". Was not hot, fish was dry, turkey was dry, veggies cold, etc - one good dessert (out of 3) was pumpkin. Don't mind paying $$$$ for a good dinner, but this was not one of them. Definitely not worth a return trip!

What a let down! It was our 14th wedding anniversary and the service was absolutely terrible. We made reservations and they still sat people without reservations first. We sat for 20 minutes and nobody spoke to us. The food was just okay, not worth the $200 we spent on dinner for sure. Our server talked loudly to a neighboring table for the entirety of our meal to the point other servers brought out our food because he was steadily talking and not steadily serving. I had nothing to drink for most of my meal. The resort is so magical that I had very high expectations but I wish we had gone to Calypso’s for shrimp tacos instead of this train wreck pretending to be 5 star dining.

The setting was romantic and inviting. The noise level was great at first and then was turned up so loud that we began shouting at each other. Our waiter, Ishmael, was very amiable and great at the beginning. However later he tried to convince me that I did not know how to cut a chop that was very tough and obviously overcooked. Finally after several requests of him even having trouble cutting it, they finally cooked another one that was very good. The manager, Giovanni, was aware of it but only said they were cooking another one. He offered no apology, explanation, comp dinner or even a dessert while I waited for them to correct the overcooked chop. The onion soup was delicious. The waiter said the stroganoff was a lot, enough for two people, but it was a small portion instead. In addition this stroganoff had way too much cognac poured over it after it was cooked. The alcohol was not burned off. The apple bread dessert had few apples. The seared shrimp and scallop had only one each and had to be sent back to be reheated because it was served cold. My wife grilled salmon with sweet potato were excellent. My blackened was dry needing me get extra sauce. Key lime mango tart outstanding. The Creme Brulee had a good flavor, but know that it is served cold instead of warm like most restaurants. Finally the waiter forgot to charge us for 1 of our 4 dinners. When I was honest and brought it to his attention he began to argue and say that he had charged the correct amount. Finally after I said okay he rechecked and agreed that he made an error and went back and added the charge and made a new bill. The kicker was he had the audacity to say that he had corrected it for me, although it was in his and the restaurant best interest and not mine. Even though it was a Friday night, there was only about a 50% customer occupancy. As a result I still tipped the waiter 20%. If I go back I will have the French onion soup, grill salmon,key lime mango tart.

Prior to going I read many favorable reviews, and I was looking forward to our first time visit. Our server, Ishmael , was excellent and made us feel like we were his only table. He was extremely informative, very polite, attentive and really added so much to our dining experience. The food was very pleasing to the eye as well as to the palate. The portions were larger than expected, and we were delighted to be able to take our leftovers home. The evening could not have been more enjoyable, and we have their staff to thank for showing their guests what it means to dine in a very well run restaurant that has it all. We chose to visit this restaurant during the Orlando Magical Dining because of the wonderful reviews and the choices offered on their menu, but my husband and I both agree that we will revisit at other times during the year. It was one of the most memorable dining experiences we have had from the time we arrived until we left almost two hours later. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion, and I am sure you will not be disappointed.
