Hamilton's Kitchen at the Alfond Inn Ratings and Reviews

We decided to have our weekly family dinner here and take advantage of Magical Dining month. I'm not sure why we hadn't come here before! The restaurant and lobby of the hotel are just stunning. The service was top notch...keeping all glasses full, replacing flatware for different courses, knowledgeable about menu. 5 of us ordered from the MD menu and were very pleased with it. Chef prepared a kid-size pappardelle bolognese portion for our 10 yr old (excellent!). We were pleasantly surprised to receive an amuse bouche of one of the items on their regular menu (salmon) - even our young daughter loved it! It was delicious! The Biscoff creme brûlée MUST be added to the regular menu, please! It was presented in a small mason jar with a raspberry and cream dollop on top, the bottom of the creme brûlée had a caramel-like biscoff cookie layer - absolute perfection! The decor and ambiance are lovely. We will definitely be back!

Had Sunday Brunch with a friend. Asked for table on the patio which we got, they are very accommodating. It was lovely except a bit hot, there are NO ceiling fans on the porch and it would be so easy to add them, that would extend season for the use of the porch for alfreso dining
I had the salmon open-face sandwich with a salad, very healthy, very good, decent portion. Service is still a little 'spotty' and they don't seem to retain the service staff as, mostly, you see new faces when you come back.
Has improved a lot since they first opened! Keep it up!

My wife and I had been to Hamiton's for lunch a number of times but this was our first dinner. My bloody mary was excellent and the complimentary pork belly appetizer was a nice touch. We shared a flatbread starter that waa excellent and its softer, tasty bread was a nice change from the usual charred cracker consistency. My wife had the rack of lamb and I had the pork chop and both were excellent in taste and presentation. A complimentary creme brulee to share for desert was a pleasant surprise. The ambiance is very upscale and not at all like a hotel restaurant. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The overall experience was well beyond expectation and we will return soon.

Another great dinner! I've always enjoyed Hamilton's and I invited 3 friends to join me for dinner there as a start to our evening. We had a wonderful time. Such a pretty atmosphere and the food is delicious and very nicely presented. Our waitstaff was very attentive and actually recognized an issue before we did and quickly removed the item (liquid-y Creme brûlée). The restaurant manager returned with the replacement and waited to be sure the dessert was as good as usual. Everyone felt special! And it was a great start to our evening out.

Went to Hamilton's for a late night dinner and to check out their magical dining menu and it was amazing. From appetizer to dessert, every dish was incredibly well balanced and full of flavor. I would recommend the chicken confit that rests atop a pea puree that is to die for and the chocolate tower to end your meal. Will certainly be back to try dishes on the regular menu.

The four of us had no complaints . The atmosphere was happy. Coffee on the patio after our meal was great. The Magical dining menu was very good. This was our fourth time there (lunch and dinner). Feels like we had a mini vacation.

I was hoping for a more intimate setting. It was a beautiful restaurant, and the food was delicious, but I was placed at a for 2, and I had to sit across from my spouse. This is fine usually, but the distance between ourselves took away from the overall experience I was hoping for at this place.

The food was mostly good but a few of the dishes lacked flavor (chicken confit needed salt, pappardelle needed pepper, stead was excellent!). We asked for pepper and instead of fresh ground pepper for our $100+ meal, we got regular salt and pepper out of a glass shaker. The waitress had trouble articulating an explanation for some of the menu items that we asked about. She did the bare minimum. Our courses were paired with wine and she would bring the wine 5+ minutes after delivering the food. Overall, the food was good but we will not be returning based on the value of the meal relative to the very mediocre service.

The beet ravioli appetizer was disappointing. Imagine two eighth inch slices of beet, blanched (closer to raw) with a thimble full of (they said) crab salad in between. Now put two of those on a plate with a couple leafs of decorative lettuce. Devoid of flavor.
The 3 Oz filet ordered medium was rare- barely charred on the top and bottom, no char on the sides.
The dessert was a creme Brule with 2 raspberries - one was clearly moldy. I told the waiter and he apologized. End of story.
We took advantage of Orlando's magical dining and it seems the wait staff was over it. Sorry that our bill was $112 instead of several hundred dollars, but we will not be returning. There are several other high end restaurants within several blocks that are heads and tails above this.

Hamilton's Kitchen is a dining gem we have enjoyed on multiple occasions. Food is exceptional. Service from the gentlemen waiters is always good. Unfortunately the two women who served us on this particular night needed to "up their game". We like Hamilton's because you can enjoy the company of friends and not compete with the bar scene because it is in a separate room. Open and airy surroundings.

We chose Hamilton's Kitchen as a restaurant to celebrate a special birthday. When we arrived, we were seated at a lovely round table which made conversation very easy. The honored guest was greeted with a hand signed Birthday note and complementary champagne was offered for a birthday toast. The restaurant is beautifully appointed but not stuffy. I would call it casual elegance. The greeters and wait staff all went out of their way to make our evening special. Several different entrees were ordered and everyone was pleased with their meal. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an enjoyable evening out.

Food was delicious! Appetizer portions were minuscule (presume that's Magical Dining) and the service was very slow, but we were in absolutely no hurry, so it was not an issue. The entrees and desserts were some of the best we've had at Hamilton's. Definitely worth that $33 MDM price.

We got married at the Alfond Inn and had our wedding dinner at Hamilton's Kitchen, so we are partial to this restaurant and hotel. And this was an anniversary brunch we attended on Sept. 11th. That being said, the service was below what we have typically experienced on this occasion. I believe that I had to personally get up to get our server on 2-3 occasions during our meal. Again, this has not been our typical experience, but it happened too frequently during this visit.

Ambiance and service were fantastic. Loved the vibe. Overall the food was good. A bit salty on some things, on other items the flavors were not developed enough. I appreciate creativity, but only if it results in the best choice. Too many flavors in the same dish do not necessarily support a strong outcome. I would opt for appetizers and skip dessert if you are choosing. Excellent wine selection.

Great place -out of the ordinary place to sit and have an enjoyable evening. Nice dinner pace, delicious food. Went for magical dining, butternut squash bisque was outstanding, great filet, cooked perfect medium rare, chocolate tower was light finish. Definitely coming back

Eduardo is an excellent waiter! Highly recommend asking for him. We ate 3 meals there while staying at the Alfond inn asked for him every time. He knows the menu well, makes great recommendations on food and wine. Even came and found us later in the night while we were at the bar and spoke. Great guy!

We stayed at the Inn and ate in the restaurant twice (breakfast and lunch). Both were very good and great service. Very attentive, nice atmoshpere, and delicious. We will return, for sure. Looking forward to our next visit.

I've dined at Hamilton's Kitchen over 4 times within the past year and every time I visit this restaurant, they've always impressed myself and the good company of close friends and family. This particular reservation had no special requests, just simply taking my mom and husband out for a nice dinner during the Labor day holiday weekend. The staff - friendly as could be! If you had a question or request, they answered. The Chef/Food - Unbelievable, fantastic! The chef even surprised our table with a special pork belly and quail egg appetizer (not even on the menu) - The presentation of the dish was "magical". This small, but delicious gesture is the reason why I always recommend Hamilton's Kitchen over most "Park Ave" restaurants around the area. The service is always goes above and beyond. I highly recommend this restaurant. Farm to table dishes, fresh ingredients, satisfying portions and a great atmosphere.

We went for our 1 year Anniversary and magical dining experience. Some of the food was ok, while other plates were fantastic. Overall, we enjoyed the meal, wait staff and ambiance. Very romantic and homey feeling.

My wife and I went there for our anniversary. I put a comment in the reservation that it was our anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make sure we felt special to include recognizing the occasion, a preferred table, complimentary champagne and appetizer. The entire meal was fantastic and the service was exceptional.

This was my second time dining at The Hamilton. Food was just as good as it was the first time, but Server was not attentive at all and I was entertaining clients, so it was a bit embarrassing. Once we addressed with management, they immediately addressed, but unfortunately it was toward the end of our meal. With that said, I would still recommend The Hamilton.

I have had breakfast at the Alfond Inn on more than one occasion and it has been very good with an assortment of foods. Our experience at dinner on a Wednesday evening was disappointing for more than one reason. The noise level in the restaurant is very loud and not conducive to a quiet conversation or a romantic evening. I was surprised that there were no "unoaked" chardonnay wine choices given that many people have reactions to oaked chardonnay. The snapper and salmon entrees were delicious. When I requested dinner rolls instead of seeded crackers with what seemed to be a pimento cheese spread (an no other choice of spread was offered) I was told that bread and/or rolls were not available. Our wait staff was attentive-almost too much so-but they were available frequently and that was appreciated. Our waiter was friendly and courteous.
Nonetheless, we wanted to quickly eat and leave because the noise level was obnoxious. I have had breakfasts at the Alfond Inn which have been wonderful but I doubt I will return again for dinner.

We went to dine for magical dining. We had never been so wanted to try a new place. We order the beet ravioli which was HORRIBLE, not good at all. It tastes like salty dirt. Entree was pretty good, blue cheese corvina. And the Biscoff creme brûlée was delicious. I probably wouldn't recommend, although I do give restaurants a second or third chance. From first experience I would say it was just ok. I was with my closest girlfriends so we had fun no matter what. I just think the flavors need to be stepped up a notch. Heard their brunch is delicious, so might try that.

As usual, we enjoyed our food and the atmosphere is just great. Service was great as well, our server was attentive but didn't interrupt too much. I would totally recommend Hamilton's for a business dinner, for a group of friends, a date, or just a nice dinner out with a friend.

The staff is AMAZING and works very well together. However, the bad manager of this establishment is a train wreck. He is rude and abrasive. He delivered the food to the table but never took the time to see who got which entree - fail. He NEVER came to see if everyone was happy - at any table. When we left, he was hanging out at the hostess stand - just hanging out. He did not say a word - not good night, not we hope to see you again, how was everything - NOTHING. This guy we have had issues with in the past. He is rude and arrogant. We would go more often but he is there and just don't wish to deal with his negativity. Too bad because the chef and the staff are AMAZING! And should be complimented at the wonderful work they do. Everything is flawless and exceeds expectations. The manager would be better suited for a bad burger joint. Would have given my rating a 5 but, they keep a bad manager and that is a minus 1 star (should be more but the staff and chef keep the loss to only 1).
