    This is only our second visit to K Restaurant. We live on the other side of Orlando, so it is a bit of a drive to get there, but definitely worth it. The ambience is delightful - small quiet dining rooms in an old restored house on Edgewater Drive in College Park. Enough noise and activity that is invigorating, but not so loud that you cannot have a quiet conversation with your dining companion(s). Service was excellent - accommodating, friendly and professional without being intrusive. The food was excellent - interesting preparations with locally sourced fresh ingredients. I had the fish and my partner had the duck. Both dishes were delicious. We shared the chocolate mousse for dessert - chocolatey without being too sweet or rich.

    This local gem features and ever changing menu with delectable treats like duck and lamb as well as a seafood treat. We went and sampled the magical dining menu, choosing the seafood minestrone, Florida seafood (the daily fish special) and the smores dish. The seafood "minestrone" was a nicely blended seafood medley with an oyster, shrimp, clams as well as some fresh vegetables - nice light dish, perfect for starter. The Florida seafood was a fish dish we all chose and delicious to the last bite. For desert, we all ordered different items, including the smores, the key lime cheesecake and the French toast bread pudding. By far the table favorite was the French toast bread pudding. Definitely make a reservation!

    We experienced the magical dining menu at K Restaurant, and it was very delicious! We looked at the regular menu as well, and there were certainly some items we would be willing to go back for and try. While everything we tasted was quite good, the portions seemed a little small, but maybe that's due to the magical dining menu? Service was very good--friendly and fairly quick--and we liked the charm of the restaurant being a converted home. We would recommend this restaurant as a great special occasion spot, but it may be a little pricey for your average weekend dining.

    We have been to K MANY times. Each time the menu is fresh and delicious. This place is truly a neighborhood gem. However, the service was horrible this visit. We were rushed and did not appreciate it. In about an hour time frame we had 4 appetizers, 2 salads, and 4 entrees. This was not the evening I envisioned.

    This is the second time we have been there. Food outstanding as the first time. Only disappointment was there was no cheese cake on the regular dinner menu. It was on the taste of Orlando menu. From what I saw the portion were smaller than the one we had on the last visit. Service was good but not nearly as good as the first visit. Forgot to offer bread, made no attempt to try to offer the cheese cake as desert as neither one of us like pecans or heavy chocolate. Will return

    Monday night is typically a slow time for restaurants and it was not as busy as usual. The food was still excellent and the service was excellent too. They offered the Magical Dining menu without being asked, which was a pleasant surprise. We ordered the fried green tomato starter and it did not disappoint. That may be may favorite! Hubby also had the deviled eggs and I had a delicious seafood soup with a broth base. Hubby ate the Elk which was a new dining experience for him and he said it was delicious, tender and very well prepared. The presentation was lovely. I chose the Magical Dining menu and ordered the fish. A great choice. The dessert was s'mores. It was very, very sweet, too much graham cracker for me and I left it.

    e tried K restaurant during magical dining month based on good reviews, and we were very happy with the food. The bruschetta, pork tenderloin and bread pudding were all exceptional. The gnocchi and gazpacho were good, but nothing special. The atmosphere felt like a neighborhood restaurant were customers are family. For the price, I expected the decor to be a bit fancier, but it was still nice. Only real complaint was small portions. It was enough food for me to feel satisfied, but there wasn't much to share and my husband left feeling hungry. For the price, I would have expected larger portions (based on the regular menu price). Despite that, it was great tasting and quality food, which is unique to the many chain restaurants in Orlando.

    The restaurant is very loud. I had the gazpacho crab salad- which the tomato was very zesty, the avocados were nice, but no crab anything in my dish. My dinner mate's entree was cold. My husband accidentally ordered off the regular menu and the oysters didn't quite make the mark. And, he received ice cream with his bread pudding and we didn't ( guess that's why the $33). We were excited to be coming here and they missed the mark. The trout was very good, the Caesar salad was wilted - sad that this visit didn't pan out.

    K is one of a growing number of neighborhood restaurants that do things their way, not the industry way. First of all, make sure you make a reservation. They are very busy on weekends (we slipped in on a Tuesday with a reservation after being turned away on a Friday night). The food was great, the ambience was delightful (not a big crowd on a weeknight), and the service was outstanding (thanks Stephen with a "ph"). A lot of their items are locally sourced and the menu changes everyday. Definitely check it out - do it during the five weeks of Magical Dining Month for a prix-fixe bargain of three courses for $33!

    We had absolutely no complaint about the service, which was friendly and efficient. However, although the restaurant was fairly busy on a Friday night, we don't believe it is worth a special trip. The food was so so and we would find it hard to recommend this restaurant on the merits of its food.

    The food at K lived up to the hype. We started with the deviled eggs which were really good. We ordered the filet and duck breast as main courses. Both were excellent. Filet had a nice crust and was cooked perfect. The potato gratin served underneath was addictive! It was in an old house which wasn't what I was expecting. However for low ceilings and small space, the noise level wasn't bothersome at all. All in all, really good!

    We couldn't decided what we wanted from the many tempting options on this ever changing menu, so we opted for a number of small plates. Each was well thought out and beautifully presented. The oysters, fig, and goat dishes stood out. The GM was excellent and made sure I had wine(s) that complimented my food. The one minor kitchen error we encountered was immediately addressed generously and apologetically (I got the impression such errors are rare) and didn't detract from an excellent dining experience. Great food, great service - we will be back!

    We had been wanting to come to here for a while and finally had the chance. The food was great- the "problem" with a menu that changes daily is that you kind of only have one shot to try a dish- however, the fact that there are dates printed on the menu and the ingredients change daily with availability is awesome- it was difficult to choose but the grilled peach salad and triggerfish I had were great as was my dining companion's f'waffle (foie gras + waffle) duck. The service was a little disappointing- we weren't regulars and that was evident in the service we received. The only annoyance of the night was another table of diners who decided to watch a video on their phone- loudly. We both agreed that we would come back though.
