    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.

    Dined on 9/5/2014
    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.

    We had the pleasure of finding this place last minute on a short trip to. Orlando. Being from Chicago, we had no idea where to eat but we love food! This place was incredible! Chicken livers were so good--crispy with a wonderful blackberry jam. We adored the fried green tomatoes and our cheesecake in a glass dessert with dragon fruit was such a treat and a nice taste of the area. Much of what is served here comes straight from the chefs garden and it shows! I hope we have reason to be back in Orlando just so we can eat there again! We adored our waiter who was knowledgeable, attentive and funny! Don't miss this place!

    We sat on the front porch and were able to bring our dog which was great. You don't find restaurants of this caliber who allow dogs so this was a real find for us. The service was excellent. The deviled eggs were tasty, salads clean and fresh, and the ricotta gnocchi delicious (large portion). We enjoyed our dining experience very much.

    Enjoyed a wonderful dinner on a quiet evening. We were very fortunate to have Rocky as our server. He had excellent suggestions regarding menu selections and offered an amazing substitution for my request for Pomme Frites (which they do not or would not make) Instead he brought out house made chips with blue cheese, which were delicious. I had the mussels in a curry sauce. Amazing. My husband had the Seafood Bouillabaisse, which was also top notch. Enjoyed the extensive wine list from which we ordered a Ladera Howell Mountain Cab! Yummy. Most of all we had fun fun fun due to Rocky's "entertainment" style of table service. A refreshing change from the mostly good yet uninterested service one receives at most restaurants these days.

    Such a great restaurant. This was our second time at K, but our first at new location. The food both times was memorable and delicious, but I liked this location better because it feels like you're dining in an old house (which I think technically you are). If you like new hip decor this is not for you... It's all about the service and food here. Had the shrimp and grits which was spectacular. Also tried the bacon & ricotta gnocchi which was sooo light and airy yet rich with flavor. It was a quiet night so service was fast and fun. Definitely will go again and again.

    I have been wanting to dine a K for a long while; had heard of the great food being served there. I was not disappointed with the food but unfortunately our server did not give us the kind of service you would expect at an upscale restaurant like K's. The short rib my husband had was super tender and tasty. My gnocchi was also excellent. We did a 3 course special for the month of June and everything we had was great. But the service did detract from our dining experience. We were never asked if we wanted more wine or if we wanted coffee with dessert. I don't know if I would return.
