Hamilton's Kitchen at the Alfond Inn Ratings and Reviews
Fabulous cuisine! Attentive waitstaff. Really enjoyed the hash brown crusted halibut. My daughter ordered a chefs special of lamb that was very well prepared. I would definitely return and try more menu items even though I am still thinking about that halibut 2 days later!
Went for brunch. Waffle was supposed to have berries on top. It came with 4 pieces, as in, 2 blueberries and 2 half strawberries. No one seemed to care so when we saw waiter, we asked for some actual berries which were brought to us. They ran out of scones so instead they brought us a blueberry muffin and 2 pieces of bacon. Not sure if we were charged for that as I was not the person who paid the bill. Hot chocolate was just okay. Truffle fries had way too much truffle oil and hardly any parmesean cheese. Salmon was good, huevos rancheros eggs were good, and our waiter, Ian, was very nice and friendly. Not sure if experience had to do with going 45 min prior to closing but thought the food would be a tad bit tastier. Ambience was nice but don't sit close to kitchen as constant waiters and waitresses walking back and forth. Would probably eat at lounge next time as their menu seemed better than the brunch menu.
This hotel & restaurant were both stunning. We sat outside and had a lovely view of the courtyard. Sitting near the fountain was relaxing. Service was incredible. We had reservations for an anniversary lunch and the staff was well informed, wrote us a card and celebrated with us. We felt like we were family there! We will return.
Lovely dining room, adajacent to attractive outdoor seating. Our breakfast was well prepared and delicious. The server was friendly, professional and attentive. No issues, except that it was very cold in the dining room. Loved the menu offerings and the pleasant ambiance. Will be back!
The waitress was excellent, and I noticed the hostess did a great job of handling a guest who did not have a reservation and tried to bully her to get a table. My son's hamburger was good, but my fish taco was not good. I will look forward to returning but will not order the fish taco!
We enjoyed seeing all the artwork!
Our waiter was amazing! I believe his name was Andrew. However, we had a 12:15 pm reservation and was told we would be seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time. Finally at 12:35, we inquired about our table. The girl at the check in stand was very rude and unpleasant. She did not offer an apology but snarkily responded, “Well, you wanted to sit inside”. We were finally sat at 12:45. This was Christmas day and we were treating my parents to brunch. We had another commitment at 2 pm so we had to rush. I am disappointed in her attitude but the food and atmosphere was lovely.
What a wonderful evening at Hamilton’s. This is our 3rd time dining with them and it was nothing but perfect. Service is always friendly and attentive, the food is wonderful, and the atmosphere regardless of your inside or outside is relaxing. A must try if you are in the area!
We went on Christmas Eve and were very disappointed. There was no atmosphere. The food was awful. Luke warm soup, bloody rack of lamb, even after sending it back once it came back even bloodier! We felt rushed and got the impression that our waitress just wanted to get home even tho it was only 830 which was the only time available when we booked. We have been before to Magical Dining which was good but it will be a while before we return if ever!
I've heard so many good things about Hamilton's that I was excited to take my parents there while they were visiting for Christmas. I made a reservation for 7:30. When we arrived, we were told it would be a few minutes wait for our table, so we stood near the hostess counter and waited. At 7:45 my husband went over and asked when our table would be ready and was told it would be soon. At 8:00 I went over to ask again. They told us the previous party was still sitting at our table, so they were going to put together a table outside. Just when that table was ready, the party left and we could sit at our table. I have never waited 30 minutes for a reservation before! They never suggested we sit down, or order a drink. They just watched us standing there waiting and waiting! The manager came to our table to apologize but never offered anything to make up for it. Then we sat at the table to another 10 minutes with nothing but water waiting for our waiter. When he finally did show up, he made us feel like he wasn't really interested in serving us. The food was very good, but at the price of this restaurant, the service should have been considerably better!
I met my mom there for a Christmas brunch (the Saturday before Christmas). I was very pleased with the menu options, and the prices did not seem out of line for what you get for the money. The biggest problem was deciding which to order among all the things that sounded great. My mom had the salmon and loved it. I had the hamburger--not the bison, but the regular one, the Rollins burger. To be honest, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great, either. The brioche was nice, but otherwise it was pretty humdrum. The meat was obviously of good quality, but was kind of drab...there was no sear, really, so it lacked that flavor, and it was not juicy. It wasn't bad enough to complain about, but I was sorry I didn't order something else.
hamilton's was busy, more than I have previously seen. It was too loud for 4 of us to have a reasonable conversation.
My huevos rancheros was simply 2 eggs on three tortillas with sauce, my wifes eggs benedict was a better choice.
get the scones...........always great.
I'll try again this was not my usual experience.
I ordered the crab crusted scallops as an entree, this dish looked pretty but it didn’t translate to flavorful- the scallops sat on top of a small sliced potato that tasted undercooked and hard (by the way you got 3 scallops and green beans with this meal) my green beans were drenched in olive oil - I couldn’t eat them, I could’ve squeezed out a liter of olive oil off the green beans - just way too much, the restaurant itself was nice, not many people there night I visited - service was ok, the server didn’t come to the table that much so at times ran out of water - the drinks from the bar weren’t all that great either - not a place I will return to eat - went with a group of friends(most ordered steaks, which were not very good either, next time we will go to Christner’s for great steaks) and they all felt same way the food was just ok, service was ok overall experience was just ok
I had a great octopus appetizer. Generous serving and could not have been more tender. Pork shank entree almost inedible. Pork shank with significant fat contact should be pretty forgiving. To be as dry as this one was is unforgivable at a restaurant like this.
Took my wife her for our anniversary and to try a new place. We were greeted very warmly and was wished by all the staff a happy anniversary. Waitress served us a glass of champagne on the house and welcomed us for choosing their restaurant to mark our special occasion. Food was very excellent and the atmosphere was just what we needed. Very relaxed and quiet but not so much to lull you to sleep. We had a great time and enjoyed the time away. Looking forward to when the hotel adds a spa to enable a little stay and play in the Winter Park area.
Our second visit was not a charm. We enjoyed our first visit to this same hotel a few months ago, which was actually on a much busier high season Saturday night, instead o f this lower season Friday night. The restaurant was literally empty, strange, since when we made our OpenTable reservation, we preferred 7 or 7:30, but found the only option to be an awkward 6:45 pm. The menu is actually very diversified, something for everyone. Except this time, the food seemed average. My wife had her same chicken and I had my same filet, to the tune of $40 for the steak and considering we were literally the only people in our section of the restaurant, the food seemed almost cold. We have also not been to any high quality restaurant in a long time which does not serve bread, this restaurant gives you some type of salted and seeded crackers instead. The 2 desserts were as underwhelming as the entrees. The wait staff was very professional, friendly and provided great service, but it could not make up for the shortfalls in food taste, quantity or quality. The decor in the restaurant is very pleasant and relaxing and the Alfond Inn hotel very upscale. All in all, I doubt we will return soon, hoping that things get back to the way they were the first time we dined there.
