Hamilton's Kitchen at the Alfond Inn Ratings and Reviews
Valet and food outstanding, hotel is amazing, poor service at the restaurant. Everyone was being waited on except our table. The waiter in my area didn't bother to come over and at least ask if we were being helped. Ignored us as we watched everybody else get served. Couldn't understand since there were 4 tables in his area and he was attentive to all but our table. Finally gave an excuse about miscommunication but he could have at least asked after seeing us sitting for a while with not even being served water. We noticed him laughing and chatting at the table next to us while we got ignored. May give it another try since the food was awesome.
Kind of disappointing. Birthday celebration for my wife. Meatball appetizers were lukewarm and had a gritty texture. I can make better. Fish portion was tiny. Tasty, but tiny. I helped my wife with her humongous double cut pork chop. Pork chop was rather bland. More like a pork loin. Server never did come back and ask us how things were. Complimentary birthday cake was delicious and generous.
Our food was very good and delicious, but we found the menu a bit limiting - especially if you wanted low calorie food. Our waitress was good when she was present, but she was handling another table (or maybe 2 or 3) that was in another part of the restaurant, and we had to summon her on more than one occasion. This was irritating as there were plenty of other help standing around near the kitchen. The one guy pouring water was very attentive, but he was running around the whole restaurant - filling everyone's glasses. The place was NOT crowded (several tables open) so there was no excuse for such a lack of attention.
WE live local and have eaten here on multiple occasions.WE have given them the benefit of the doubt numerous times>>.One thing for certain, they are consistently inconsistent!!!! The Food is good however our last 2 times only fair.. portion size can vary also!
The service is alway below standards....
Joined a friend for brunch at Hamilton's Kitchen on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The 'Savannah Salmon' dish that I ordered for was fab; So fresh and prepared perfectly with a tasty blue crab sauce atop fresh veggies. There was a good crowd and an acoustical guitarist playing. Since we wanted to chat, we decided to relocate to the terrace. Then we were too hot and moved again. The waiter and the hostess could not have been nicer with the 'musical tables'.
I would recommend that they purchase additional umbrellas for the outdoor tables. The outdoor courtyard and fountain is such a charming venue. It would be a shame to waste the space for lack of sun cover.
The food was very good, if rather pricey. The problem was a limited menue, which would not have been a problem, except they were "out" of the first two choices of food, and didn't have the ingredients for one of their signature cocktails. In fact, the first three things we attempted to order, were not available for one reason or another. For a resteraunt which fashons itself as exclusive, this left a bad impression.
It was pretty good. They must have a problem with little bugs (gnats). They were on our food plates. I mentioned it to the server, and he didn't even ask if I wanted another dish. Then I told the upfront person as well while waiting for my girlfriend while she was at the restroom. She didn't say anything either. I know things happen, but a little acknowledgment would have been nice. Spent $200 with tip and probably wont be going there again.
We had a 6pm reservation for a party of 3 people. We ordered 2 appetizers, one of which was the meatballs which were quite delicious. We then had a salad a split one entree. We each had one glass of wine and were there for over 2 hours!! The amount of time we waited between appetizers and entree was absurd! No apologies, no one checking on us. The food was ok, but the service is in need of some serious work.
Overall pleasant experience. The kitchen unfortunately did not have the meatball appetizer or the other red meat offered on the menu, so the steak was the only option. One of us was wanting something other than fish after 10 days of lovely winter weather in South Florida. We did order the smoked fish spread appetizer since we had not had an opportunity to enjoy some on this trip-sounds odd but it's a s FL specialty we love. Presented in a wide mouthed mason type jar with lid locked down to contain cloud of smoke inside. Our server unlocked & opened it, releasing the wood smoke to whet our appetites. Very nice! The depth of the jar did make it difficult to access the spread with knives, however. It was worth the extra work required as the spread was delicious.
There were three of us; two were very happy and one was not. The unhappy one did not find her meal seasoned as she expected (spicy hot as she told the waiter) - felt it was bland. While the waiter offered to have her meal redone, the offer was rejected as the other two were almost through eating by the time the waiter checked on us. The music was wonderful and appropriate.
We went to Hamilton's Kitchen for our anniversary. The food was excellent. The weather was nice so we dined outside. Once a rather loud-talking table nearby vacated 5-10 minutes after we arrived it was just beautiful. Our server was attentive and pleasant. The restaurant gave us each a complimentary glass of champagne & a small but excellent salmon appetizer. My bride had the veal and a greens salad. I had the filet mignon. Everything was excellent. Just note: this is gourmet food but the atmosphere is very nice but fairly casual.
Had a great reunion with my college roommate. Only issue we had was being next to a large birthday group, which made listening to each other a little difficult.
However, this was a great place to celebrate our friendship and growing up in Maitland and Winter Park.
