    Three of us dined before the concert, and the staff is very accommodating about our schedule. We had the fried green tomatoes with crab as a starter and it was perfect! Just enough kick in the crab to prepare you for your entrée. Two of us had the drum fish, and it was delicious. The third had the roasted chicken and said it was moist and full of flavor. Dessert was the chocolate selection and not a morsel was left. K's chef is consistent, creative and continues to be a favorite.

    When K first opened they seemed like they were going to be the new "hot" restaurant, but that didn't last. The food was OK- "new American locally sourced" mostly well prepared but some odd combinations, a little too trendy for their own good. Now they seem to hit the mark-better and more thoughtfully prepared food- still trendy but in a good way- occasionally adventurous and delicious. Worth a try, esp of you live close. Small wine list. One criticism- ambience: I think the interior is drab and not as cozy and welcoming as the food and wait staff aspire to be.

    Great restaurant with incredible food, really nice neighborhood feel and doesn't seem intimidating at all, yet the menu can stand up to any fine dining restaurant in town. They don't have a liquor license but don't worry, the beers are great and they have "kocktails" that are delicious drinks with fortified wines as the alcohol source. A great restaurant with an even better future.

    My wife and I were in Orlando for a conference and we wanted to get away from the typical Disney and universal crowd. We found K on open table and made a 7:00 reservation. When we arrived they were running late but offered us to wait at the bar. This definitely wasn't a negative. The manager took care of us at the bar until a table was available then he served us all night. The food was amazing, you have to try the fried green tomatoes stack. We had a wonderful evening of fine food and wine and highly recommend "K". If you get a chance go!!!

    I have been coming to this restaurant every time I get a chance for years. The menu changes, but that much. However, what they do is always first class. I go for the favors and food. However the wine choices are well selected to pair with what they serve. Their Fried Green Tomatoes are GREAT!! The prices are consistent with the food/wine quality and service. It is not cheap, but not over the top.

    If you love food, this place is worth every penny and then some. They spare no expense, everything is fresh with flavor built from the ground up, and the service is fantastic. To those who say portions are small, I have to disagree. My husband and I were extremely satisfied with the helpings, and he is 6'2" with an equally large appetite. :) K restaurant is going up on my pedestal next to the Seven Glaciers Restaurant, which I was fortunate enough to dine at 8 years ago. I have been telling everyone I know about this place and would recommend it to anyone with a passion for good food.

    My review could be bias because I am surrounded by different cultures of food around me back in San Francisco. I found this restaurant mainly used tomatoes as a "fresh" ingredient and solely based their dishes around it. The plate was very well put together, but the food itself does not justify how much the restaurant was charging per dish. Overall, this place is ok.

    K specializes in local food and serves specials based on the season. The seafood minestrone soup was tasty albeit a bit salty. The house made gnocchi were the best although there was little chicken shredded into the dish. My spouse enjoyed fresh seafood excellently cooked. The serving team concept provided excellent friendly and quick service. I look forward to going back again.

    We did Magical Dining. Gazpacho was fine, a tiny amount of crab in the center and some little strips of a hard bread. Pork tenderloin with a reduction sauce was perfectly cooked and tasted wonderful. I had a chicken dish with several small potato noodles, a nice mixture of sauce and items from the garden. Portion size is small but ok. Dessert was a cheesecake and french toast bread pudding both good. There were no sides and no bread. They seated folks in shorts and torn jeans on the porch outside. Regular menu looked interesting but for the price I will probably go elsewhere. Service did the job but other staff seemed more fun.

    In planning for my business trip to Orlando, I searched the web for hidden gems to dine at. K Restaurant caught my attention because of its unassuming "home" appeal and the fact that the chef is a James Beard award nominee, didn't hurt either. I thoroughly enjoyed the poached pear salad and my Eggplant Parmesan was delicious but the French Toast Bread Pudding was to die for!!! 😍 This Orlando restaurant is a MUST eat!

    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.
