Hamilton's Kitchen at the Alfond Inn Ratings and Reviews
Top flight fine cuisine restaurant; delightful, great for foodies, special occassions and delicious.
We, my husband and I can not wait to return. He had the filet mignon and I had the Chilean Sea Bass. Both had beautiful presentations and equally delicious. Timing of our courses--apetizer, main entree', and desert were spaced relaxingly and our server Dan was a pleasure. Tell them Deb G. sent you.
Management should look into everything to cut down the noise in the restaurant because we continually had to yell and repeat ourselves to carry on a conversation. And others were yelling to be heard, it was ridiculously noisy. Close off the kitchen, clashing of things in the kitchen and even the yelling the kitchen help was making was too much. Close it off, it is not providing anything positive to the dining experience just a huge negative. It is no Hard Rock Cafe.
I went here for my birthday. First of all- parking was great. Second- the minute you walk in to the hotel- all I can say was WOW!! Our server- Tony was spectacular. He was very patient, explained everything and was very attentive. We started off with the calamari which was crispy and tasty. My husband tried 2 great beers and I just had water. For our entree we had the Creekstone Filet Mignon- medium rare. It was perfect. Only thing I would change is to have mashed potatoes. I had the Prime New York Strip Loin and it was delicious. It was cooked to perfection. For dessert we had the Macallan 12 yr butterscotch pudding and it was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Tony was the best server. Thank you for great service.
I had a Groupon, which is such a great way to try new places! I took my adult son to brunch for his birthday. It is always great to spend a little alone time with him ...... especially celebrating such a wonderful, life changing event for a Mom. :)
My son had the chicken and waffles and I ordered the shrimp and grits. He very much enjoyed his and mine was fantastic! One of the best that I've ever had.
Our waitress (Lila) was a pleasure as well.
We will be returning.
Had the worst service of my life here. Our waiter was rude and demeaning and the manager even worse than him when we hoped he would fix the situation. The medium rare steak I ordered came out medium well, our wine order was forgotten til after our appetizer had been finished. The creme brulee was fantastic and the carpaccio was very good. The main course was mediocre.
It is clear the manager has distilled an attitude of being better than their diners and to do nothing to make them feel welcomed. I would recommend spending your money anywhere else.
My husband and I dined in the early evening after attending a concert at the Almond. It's a beautiful dining room with very comfortable seating and a view of the garden. We had nicely prepared seafood entrees and shared a delicious Butterscotch pudding for dessert. What a treat! The staff was very professional and pleasant. We love the bar also and had a pre-dinner drink seated in comfortable living-room style chairs. One of our favorite restaurants.
Been here a few times and the food is consistently great. Nice presentation and good portions. Live music in the Hotel bar on weekends is cool for after dinner drinks. Typical Winter Park High end crowd but refreshing nevertheless. Highly recommend to anyone for a nice dinner date or special occasion.
The Calamari Frites appetizer was excellent. My husband had the steak, which was under seasoned. I had the pork shank which was a bit sweet, and really could have used some acid to balance the sweetness. Unfortunately, the Dining Room was so warm and humid that we could not enjoy our food - we left and took most of it home. The lobby and bar area was cool - much cooler than the Dining Room.
Great food, but serious over-pricing for the portions you get. The service staff take too long. The first I went, it was great service from management and employees alike. The second, the service was quite the opposite. Watched another table get their food before ours. Waters's Kimberly looked like she should be working at a local diner. She didn't look very professional and had an excuse for everything. It's better to have management handle your table instead. I hate to say this, but thank God I had a Groupon because with 2 beers, coffee, an appetizer, two entrees, and a dessert came to $132!
It was just ok, expected more given price point and fancy restaurant in winter park. I didn't dislike it just less than I expected. Bread pudding was a warmed up banana muffin with drizzle, most bread pudding I've eaten was better. Wage beef appetizer, while never meaty, was so insignifcsnt was hard to taste. Sea bass was pretty good, not the best I e had but I did like it.
It was Fathers Day and my husband and I were looking forwa4d to trying this restaurant.
Overall the experience was kust average and we would not recommend it to others.
The wine was Rose wine was not chilled. The callamara appetizer was much too salty and had to be returned. It was substituted with another another appetizer that we did not care for. The steak was done PERFECTLY but was not hot when served. The dessert was delicious.
We felt sorry for our server. He tried his best to make up for the wine and appetizer.
We had high expectations and the restaurant did not measure up.
Used a GroupOn. A little pricey, but sometimes you want that, right? Would go back when wanting a better than usual lunch. Very serene environment. That also have valet parking so you don't have to do that Winter Park parking thing. I loved everything I ordered: crème brûlée grapefruit (and I normally don't even like grapefruit!), the shrimp & grits (best ever!), old-fashioned cocktail (just sweet enough with square ice cube & dark cherries), and 12-year Scotch butterscotch pudding in a mason jar (are you making reservations yet)? Took half home and finished it later that night! Husband had hamburger.
Kitchen was overwhelmed by unexpected numbers. Appetizer was served quickly, but entrees were served nearly an hour later. Server brought champagne in the interim and packed an extra dessert with our leftovers. Food was superb, especially crab encrusted sea scallops.
This is one of our favorite spots for Sunday brunch. On this occasion we dined earlier that morning so it was a little quieter since there were less guests. We ordered a couple of Bloody Mary's and they were good, but we do miss the create your own Bloody Mary station you used to have. Our out-of-town friends loved their chicken and waffles! Afterward, we gave them a little tour of the property and they were very impressed with the beauty of it all.
Hamilton's Kitchen at The Alfond Inn has improved dramatically since it first opened. I've had the opportunity to dine here a number of times over the past few years and can attest that it has become one of Winter Park's best dinning options. Whether you're looking for quality ingredients, creativity or presentation, you won't be disappointed!
