Diner Reviews
  • "Food was terrific and was only topped by terrific service. To top it off, being a Monday, it was jazz night and the live music was terrific"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "4 of us came for brunch. 2 got the buffet and 2 of us didn't. The food was very good, but those that got the buffet both agreed that it wasn't worth the money spent on it. Next time they will do the ala carte."

  • "the staff is very friendly and accommodating! the food was good and fresh. There are many selections including a pasta station, omlette station, fresh Belgian waffles made to order and delivered to your table. Carved strip loin of beef! we shall return"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The cheese & meat roll ups, along with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage & home fries, were nothing special. The salmon was accompanied only by bagels, cc & capers. I would have liked sliced tomato & onion. The 3 salads were difficult to get at. The carved beef looked good but no sides so I never tried it. The sweet & sour soup was good, as were the choc cake pops! They also had an omelet station & a pancake/waffle station. I was surprised that they specialize in seafood yet there was none (besides the salmon) offered at brunch. The large party (staff outing from other property) seated next to us got very noisy/obnoxious while chugging champagne directly from the bottles on their table. The mgr did offer us a gift card to return, thank you!"

  • "We were there early Friday evening and the place was nearly empty. I had read reviews and thought it would be great but it was just OK. Had the Sea Bass which was decent size but did not have a lot of flavor. Other meals in the group were rather bland as well. Not bad, just not as good as the reviews indicated."

  • "Was looking for a Sunday Brunch with friends from out of town on yelp, what a great find. Convenient location, valet parking, outstanding brunch & service. Diverse choice of tasty food & mimosas!!! A great find. "

  • "For five 60+ ladies on their Girls Night Out it was a fantastic experience. We are interested in great wine, food and service. Mingos did not disappoint!!!!!!!"
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Food was fantastic. Elegantly prepared - natural ingredients. The service was impeccable. That alone is enough to return. I sat in a very quite dining room to begin my dinner, until I was served my entree - when a table of 18 very loud 35-60 yr old adults arrived without a reservation. They yelled across the table & had no regard for others in the dining area. Very annoying. So much so, that I needed to be moved to another room - which was unfortunately the bar area. The bar had some drunk elderly clients - 55+ yr olds who again yelled across the bar to each other. The staff apologized profusely for the noise & tried their best to keep me comfortable, but it didn't do too much good. The room has no soft ceilings/walls to absorb sound."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "My entire experience was superb! The staff was professional and very nice. I was acknowledged by staff as they walked by and that was a personable touch that many fine dinings need to embrace. AJ was absolutely Fantastic! He was Classy and paid attention to the details. I was celebrating my husband's birthday and AJ's serenade was simply Angelic. He really made the entire experience more enjoyable. I have been raving about this place every since. Oh and the food..Exquisite! Will definitely return:) "

  • "Can't say enough. The management is fantastic. The service goes above and beyond and are very attentive. For instance, our server saw us sitting without food for a period and brought over a sampling of the soup du jour. Also, our water glasses were always full and our mimosas were replenished without asking. Never felt rushed. The omelet, pasta, meat carving stations are staffed with very friendly, attentive chefs. The dessert table is full of bite size desserts, perfect for an ending. We went there for Easter Brunch and returned the following Sunday with my inlaws from out of state..the food is delicious......"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "The service at Mingos was top notch. Very attentive and well versed on their menu. The restaurant emphasizes fresh ingredients. The food my husband and I ordered was good but we were not wowed. My husband had a shrimp "scampi" style pasta that tasted nothing like shrimp scampi. It was lacking in flavor. I ordered a grilled shrimp and chorizo salad that was suppose to have a watermelon jalepeno dressing on it, but again, the dressing lacked flavor. I would like to give Mingos a second chance. The list of fresh fish and steaks sound wonderful and maybe a second visit might be better."

  • "2 friends and I wanted a nice meal prior to the show at the Bob Carr so we narrowed it down between Citrus and Mingo's. Have had fantastic meals at Citrus so we decided to give Mingo's a try since the menu looked appetizing. Big mistake. All 3 of us ordered steaks, 1 FILET-MED WELL, 1 NY Strip-MED and the BIG Tomahawk Ribeye-RARE (black & blue). 45 minutes later we received our steaks... 1Hockey puck Filet, 1 WELL DONE NY Strip and 1 MED WELL Tomahawk Ribeye. There was no time to re-order so we ended up leaving only eating our sides. The manager was genuinely upset that this happened and did comp our meals. Only 2 other tables were occupied at the same time we were there which should have been a clue on the popularity of the restaurant."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Beautiful restaurant, great service, well appointed breakfast buffet, Omelette station, Belgian waffle pancake station,pasta station and carving stations...plus a nice seafood section with large shrimp, crab legs, and oysters..lots of yummy desserts. I will definitely go back for other brunches and try dinner there as well. "

  • "Its one of my favorite places to eat and its only been open 9 months, all I can say we love everything about it.The atmosphere, the service, the food the staff everyone there is very gracious and they take care of you like you were the only ones there."

  • "Went for Sunday brunch. Mingo's team is very accommodating and made us feel at home immediately. The variety of food was good, and the service was very good. I simply could not have a conversation with my guest ; too noisy! This is a great spot to bring a group of friends and family who want to celebrate an event (b-day celebration when we were there), watch game, hang out. Make their own noise! Buffet line was too long; I gave up on pasta made to order & chose veggie omelet (shorter line). The omelet was delicious and prepared as requested. There were some options for my guest who was vegetarian. I would go back for a group event, not a date "a deux". Complimentary valet parking is a big plus in this area; especially during events season."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Brunch was wonderful, food was great, service was on pointe and the mimosa's were flowing! Sometimes with "unlimited mimosa's" you get juice with a splash of champagne...not at Mingo's! AND they have many different flavors, orange, pomegranate, pineapple, the list goes on! The food was superb, omelet station, waffle station, carving station, meat's & cheese, and the traditional eggs, potatoes, bacon...it's WORTH IT!!!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The brunch experience was great! I would go back for the a la carte menu as well. If you get seated in a high top near the bar for brunch, ask to move. The flow around the brunch lines are congested and it sometimes felt like the people in line were right on top of us."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Our table of 4 was overlooked by a loud, large group celebrating a birthday. Our entree took 40 minutes to arrive, obviously because most of the staff's attention was on the party. We ate here on Saturday and loved it, then again on Wednesday, and had a much different impression, not all positive...."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "I went last Sunday (3/23/14) with my boyfriend and another couple, we had an amazing brunch experience (unlimited Mimosas), service was astonishing, food delicious and the ambience was really nice, we sat at the patio while enjoying the beautiful weather. I’ll highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "The food was outstanding and they accommodated my special dietary needs. We decided to make this our once a week go to place. Friday they had an outstanding singer and the service was top notch. I had swordfish and my date had bass. Delightful"

  • "This is my new favorite restaurant. I've already made plans to return."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Loved the interior/atmosphere. The food was excellent but we had a challenging experience getting it! 40 minutes waiting for appetizers and one flatbread was cold when it finally arrived. Manager comped them. Our entrees were slow coming out as well. But the sea bass was one of the best we have ever had. Then the wine charge on the bill was almost double the wine list price. The manager more than made up for it. Our service person was very attentive. So, the food experiece was exceptional and we really want this place to succeed. We will definitely be back for another try. I hope we had an exceptional experience - things just weren't working smoothly in the kitchen that night. Management did attend to us and were more than fair."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Again, excellent service, excellent management. Thank you for making my friends birthday so special. The personal touch with the birthday singing was awesome!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We were there on a Monday night so it was pretty quiet. Our service was excellent -attentive and very knowledgable about the menu. Our food was delicious. I definitely recommend the scallops, but everything we oredered was was great. We will go back for sure."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Loved the ambience of the style of Mingo's - beautiful decor and lighting.. The Jazz on the first Monday of the month is a great reason to go to Mingo's. The Butternut squash Ravioli was cold when first served, so they brought us a new dish. It was bland and not very special. The Ceasar's salad was quite tasty. Looking forward to tasting the entre's when I return for dinner at an earlier time of the evening. The server was fabulous - she was really a delight!"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Great for birthdays!! From the champagne to the desert and the fabulous singing by one of the servers- Mingo's get a score of A+++ all the way around. My girlfriends and I really enjoyed it! Thank you!"

  • "We had a terrific Valentine's Day dinner at Mingo's. We both had the 4 course fixed-price special. Everything was very good and well cooked and seasoned. Our server did a wonderful job. The ambiance was very nice and there entertainment was appropriate. My only complaint was that my New York strip was not the best cut of meat I've had. But overall, was had a great experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I booked a table for six on Valentine's Day at 5:30. The ambiance was upscale, chic and inviting. Our server, A.J. was perfect. Knowledgeable, attentive, funny and smooth. The food was outstanding. Rarely in this group do we find all of us happy with our meals but Mingos delivered. As an appetizer, the Marlin Tacos were a hit. For entrees, the crab cakes were the favorite followed closely by the filet. A very talented singer playing keyboard added to the great vibe. We returned for cocktails after seeing a play at the Abbey to find a vibrant bar scene that was awesome. The hostess even called a cab for us when we were ready to leave. All in our group agreed that Mingos not only made the platform but should be awarded the gold medal!"

  • "The Groupon prompted me to try this place out and I was glad I did. Food was good and the service provided by our server AJ was excellent - always made sure our drinks were full! Sitting outside on a beautiful Sunday was an added bonus. I do think that without the Groupon this place may be a bit pricey considering it is close in price to The Bohemian, however the selection is no where near as expansive."

  • "I went here on a business trip to the Orlando area. I arrived around 5:45pm on a Thursday. The restaurant was mostly empty, as was the bar. It was recently renovated, the staff said. The music in the restaurant was mainly pop hits from the 1980s, and played at a volume that was much too loud. It was inconsistent with the otherwise tasteful and more or less elegant style the restaurant was trying to impart. Our server was chatty and nervous - as was most of the staff. I think they know that the restaurant does not quite cut it. The bread, warm and tastefully seasoned was very good. The wine selection was adequate. The food was fair to good. Dessert was served right off a showing platter and tasted like it. Disappointing!"
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Lets keep our fingers crossed that Mingo's finds success in a spot that has seen several notable failures over the last few years. Our experience was quite good, the service was great and the steaks - NY Strip and Ribeye - were excellent and cooked precisely to order. Perhaps our 7 pm reservation on a Friday night was too early for any crowd to develop but we were one of only three tables occupied. The live music was a real treat, great songs well sung, and not too loud or invasive to interfere with the meal and conversation. Scott, the Manager, made a point of checking in with us and we were happy to let him know how pleased we were with the whole experience. We will certainly return soon and hope it becomes a standard "go-to" place."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Live music initially was great, but was way too loud. We couldn't hear each other. Service issues: don't know how to properly serve wine, when to clear (and more importantly when not to clear), manager response terrible. Kitchen is where Mingos needs serious help. It is true, that our standards will be different than some, but we are frequent diners at Orlando's best restaurants (K, Cask & Ladder, Ravenous Pig, Rusty Spoon, Luma, etc) and we can get a meal light years better, for the same amount. I have sent food back in a restaurant twice in my life. I sent two entrees back here in one sitting. They did comp my entrees and gave the table dessert for free, also very mediocre and if we had paid for it would have been upset."
