Hamilton's Kitchen at the Alfond Inn Ratings and Reviews

It was our first visit during magical dining and we were really looking forward to it. The service is what really detracted from the experience. We were expecting more knowledge and engagement from our server but were left unsatisfied. In addition, the dessert dish was dirty on the outside. Also, the executive chef was not there, which was disappointing. The restaurant left us with no reason to return.

We brought friends for their first visit to Alfond Inn and Hamiltons. We were promptly seated but our server was certainly less than friendly and quite frankly rushed our evening dinner, returning to the table several times, "are you ready to order" without even taking time to ensure we had ordered a cocktail/wine. When asked about substitutions to magical dining, very rude "NO', we make no exceptions. Quite frankly, he could have offered that we could include other dishes, just at the price listed. Lastly, no return to the table to check on our meal, did not include the condiment I asked for, simply pushing us to eat and pay the tab. Not at all what I would have expected from an elegant, evening dinner.

This was my second time dining at Hamilton's Kitchen and it was equally as amazing as the first time. We went for Magical Dining and it was magical for sure. Everything was so delicious. Chef Jason's menu does not disappoint. Our party had the entire Magical Dining menu (and then some) and each dish was beautiful and amazingly delicious. You definitely need to check out Hamilton's Kitchen.

Magical Dining lead us to try Hamilton's Kitchen at Alfond Inn. I will definitely go back. The food was fresh, attractive and innovative. My husband had the butternut squash soup (delish). I tried the beet raviole with crab but it actually wasn't that great. Everything else was superior.

Wonderfully composed food, quality ingredients and an inventive chef that knows how to let the ingredients come together for an outstanding culinary experience. We had the filet with a great gratin from white and sweet potato and my wife had the fish dish. The creme brulee was to die for. We went there again with some friends the same week.

This is the second time over the last month that we have gone to Hamilton's Kitchen and have had a less than desirable experience. We love the Alfond Inn (we were married there a year ago and have eaten at Hamilton's Kitchen on numerous occasions). When we ate there recently for our anniversary, the food was marginal and the service was poor. I thought it might have just been an off night for Hamilton's Kitchen. Unfortunately our bad experience a few weeks ago was surpassed by our most recent visit. The service was extremely slow (again), the server did not understand English very well, the soup was cold, and the filet mignon tasted rancid. I suspect we will be making alternative choices for our optional dining going forward. I am very disappointed because we love the location and the atmosphere.

My husband and I took advantage of the Magical Dining Month and had dinner at Hamilton's Kitchen at The Alfond Inn. The new executive chef, Jason Klingensmith is a true artist. His artistically prepared modern-American dishes were a double treat...not just for the presentation but also for the creative ingredients. The sous vide filet with a persilliade of herbs and red wine syrup was a hit...and his version of Creme Brulee with a Biscoff twist was one of the best desserts I have ever had. Ian our server was also great...very personable and knowledgeable who is passionate about the talents of chef Jason. We also took advantage of the wine pairings offered with the special menu which was a nice addition. Great "Night at the Museum".

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 disappoin ...
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!
