Instead, venture into the realm of exquisite dining experiences offered by the best hotel restaurants in Orlando. These establishments combine delectable cuisine, impeccable service, and enchanting atmospheres, providing guests with unforgettable culinary journeys. Join us as we explore some of the top hotel restaurants that are sure to satisfy even the most discerning palates.

Hamilton’s Kitchen (The Alfond Inn)

300 East New England Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789
Website: hamiltons-kitchen

Located within the elegant confines of The Alfond Inn in Winter Park, Hamilton’s Kitchen is a culinary gem that delivers a delightful dining experience. The menu at Hamilton’s features modern Southern cuisine. Chef Stephen Doyle focuses on natural and organic products that shine a spotlight on Florida. If the weather is moderate, get a table in the courtyard for Sunday brunch. Must-eats here include the octopus as an appetizer, shrimp and grits for the main, and – for brunch – the breakfast potatoes are a gem.

Four Flamingos (Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress)

Television’s “Top Chef” champion Richard Blais is winning fans fast with his Florida-inspired eatery at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. It helps that the menu pays homage to Hemingways, the restaurant that operated in the same space for 30 years. Start with the ice-cold oysters and pearls but save room for the “Bread and Butter” coconut media noche with sea-salt butter. For a main, the whole lobster with citrus beurre blanc beckons. Try the cauliflower roast with jerk glaze and coconut spinach mustard caviar if you prefer plants to seafood.

Victoria & Albert’s (Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa)

Prepare to be astounded by the epitome of fine dining at Victoria & Albert’s. This AAA Five Diamond award-winning restaurant boasts an opulent ambiance, personalized service, and a rotating menu of exquisite contemporary American cuisine. (Definitely choose the king crab with caviar if it’s available.) The chef’s table experience and the impressive wine list add to the grandeur. Plan to spend several hours to fully appreciate the multi-course meals, which also suggests it’s not the best kid option despite its resort location.

Capa Steakhouse & Bar (Four Seasons Resort Orlando)

10100 Dream Tree Blvd, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32836
Website: Capa

Perched atop the Four Seasons Resort Orlando, Capa provides breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding area. This Spanish-influenced steakhouse specializes in prime cuts of meat and fresh seafood, prepared with a contemporary twist. Take the plunge and order the Creekstone 32-ounce porterhouse, but be prepared to glare with jealousy if your dining mate chooses the New Zealand rack of lamb. Pair your meal with a selection from the extensive wine list and savor the culinary artistry against the backdrop of the stunning Orlando skyline. Wine fans won’t be disappointed; Capa was named to the “Wine Enthusiast” magazine list of Best 100 Wine Restaurants in the U.S in 2016.

The Boheme (Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando)

Cocktails get equal billing with the entrees at The Boheme. Start with an Ocean Old-Fashioned, smoked table side with Jefferson’s Ocean Rye. A curated selection of Florida craft beer awaits others. The grilled octopus, frenzied up with pickled Fresno peppers, beckons from the appetizer menu. For the main, we struggle to choose between the beef tenderloin (with wild mushroom ragout and a red wine sauce) and the Chilean sea bass (with roasted butternut and andouille hash). If you’re downtown on a Sunday, try the jazz brunch menu.

Fiorenzo Italian Steakhouse (Hyatt Regency Orlando)

9801 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819
Menu: Fiorenzo

Fiorenzo Italian Steakhouse at the Hyatt Regency Orlando on International Drive blends Italian cuisine with the art of fine steak. Flatbreads here (available gluten-free on request) make for impressive appetizers, particularly Bistecca Balsamico with American Wagyu beef and a gorgonzola fontina béchamel sauce. A dry-aged glazed pork chop will catch your eye but study up on the beef options or you’ll miss the 48-ounce prime porterhouse for two.

Bull & Bear (Waldorf Astoria Orlando)

The inspiration for the Bull & Bear comes from the original location in New York City, an institution since the 1930s that has since closed. Thankfully, we have this steak paradise in Orlando. All the classic dishes are represented including Oysters Rockefeller, foie gras, and even an impressive veal Oscar. But save room for the 38-ounce tomahawk steak for you and a side of creamed spinach for the ultimate experience.

The Palm (Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando)

5800 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL 32819
Website: the-palm

The original Palm opened in New York City in 1926 and became famous for its celebrity-caricature walls (due to its location near the cartoonist’s district of the town). The Orlando location honors the artwork and the Italian-influenced menu of the original. Steaks and lobsters can feel cartoonishly large here as well. If you’re feeling more old school, linguine with white clam sauce awaits along with a crazy-good veal chop margherita. Can’t decide? Go with the Palm Duo, a center-cut filet paired with a lobster tail. It’s just the kind of excess one should expect from an eatery in the Hard Rock Hotel.

Knife & Spoon (The Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes)

4012 Central Florida Pkwy, Orlando, FL 32837

Knife & Spoon at The Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes in Orlando is celebrated by Michelin for its culinary expertise, upscale ambiance, and commitment to delivering a memorable dining experience. The restaurant is helmed by John Tesar, a chef celebrated (some say vilified) on TV’s “Top Chef” but also well-regarded for his classic European techniques. Dry-aged steaks seduce diners along with a selection of seafood that would make Neptune jealous. Try the uni cacio e Pepe if you prefer something a little more unique. It’s all housed in a room that’s as beautiful as the food.

Bacán (Lake Nona Wave Hotel)

If you find yourself closer to Orlando International Airport, Bacán is the must-try restaurant to indulge in. There’s an energy in the dining room that you won’t find in most upscale restaurants so lean into it. It’s on the Michelin list of recommended restaurants in town as well. “Diners may sample small plates like pork belly and lobster tacos; or larger, signature dishes like the market fish with a grapefruit mojo,” Michelin says. The smoked pork belly “al pastor” with compressed pineapple is also a star. And don’t pass on the house Parker rolls with chipolte-agave butter.
