Diner Reviews
  • "Food was awesome and reasonably priced. Service was great. Would highly recommend."

  • "Went here for son's 13th bday on our trip to Orlando. Hostess set a poor tone right off the bat by being dismissive and unattentive. We were seated away from any interesting ambience related to basketball, which is why we went here. The TVs weren't even on in our section. Food was overpriced for so-so quality. Took longer than average to get our food. Did nithing special to recognize the birthday occasion. Wouldn't go here again and will suggest others give it a pass as well."

  • "We came during March Madness- tv quality terrible, waiter refused to write our order down and then got it wrong, twice!- not bringing my starving son's food until the adults were done with their meal. Food was luke warm, getting a refill on water seemed to be akin to mounting a broadway show, and the picture on the tvs were blurry and not in HD. (Like they took a cable connection meant for one tv and split it 97 ways...) Manager came out to "assist us" which seemed to delay bringing the screwed up order. Skip this place and just hit the store for your sports fans."

  • "Good fun place for nba fans. Needs to get updated. The arcade area was lacking in technical issues. The score keeper on the machines wee broken. Kinda defeats purpose of paying 4 tokens for that. The screens were nice and large but lacked hd quality. The quality in today's market should be top notch. The food was good but come on no free chocolate milk refills for kids. Seemed to be stuck in 2005."

  • "Since I was on vacation, I had never been to this restaurant before. I made reservations online for two. When I arrived (on time) I was seated in the bar area-with people who did not make reservations. I was sat in a corner in weird chairs low to the ground .We were sat right near the bar and neither of us drink. It wasn't the experience I wanted on my couples vacation. I ordered a garden salad. It must have been sitting for a while because the shredded cheese had melted and the lettuce was warm;such a bummer . My tomato and mozzarella app was yummy . On the plus side our waiter...who was super busy because of random people walking in and ordering in the bar area...was very friendly and attentive. Overall, the experience was just okay."

  • "I have been to NBA City two times now and both times I enjoyed the food. I was disappointed with the hostesses both times; the first time they made no attempt to honor my request to sit by the large screen; the second time I made the reservation thru Open Table and they apparently did not make the proper acknowledgement thru Open Table so that it appeared that I was a no show. They also refused to seat me at a booth; stating that they were "reserved" yet booths remained open while I was there."

  • "Food was less then average. Service was good as we had a trainee and a trainer taking care of us. French fries where luke warm. Wouldn't recommend it as there are so many other choices within walking distance."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Everything was great other than our host. When he went to seat us and we asked for a booth he said that he had to ask first and had an attitude about asking if we could change tables. There were several open booths in the restaurant. Out of the entire restaurant there were only four tables taken. When he went to check and see if it was okay he left us in the middle of the dining room wondering where he went and what he was doing. Just a policy that might be best if changed. If a customer would prefer a booth instead of a table and the restaurant is empty it would be a good idea not to make them feel as if they are inconveniencing you. The waiter was very good and our food was amazing. My boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed his birthday lunch."

  • "Walking back and forth between the 2 Universal Parks, we found the NBA City restaurant and of course my two boys HAD to eat there…the food and service were both great. Kids totally enjoyed it and our server really accommodated them. We were there at lunchtime and the restaurant was not that busy -- surprising for a weekday in August. Would highly recommend to anyone not wanting to eat inside the parks..."

  • "The servive was poor, my family was sat down and virtually forgotten. The restaraunt was not even at half capacity. Things just seemed out of order. The food was also lackluster. The manager did offer his appology and discount."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I had chicken which was very very dry. The restaurant reminds you of an Applebees but not as nice. They have basketball hoops but you have to purchse coins, seems this should be free, they also have a very expensive, way over priced NBA store. We will not go again."

  • "We had a horrible experience, we where not asked how to have burgers cooked. We were not asked for extras on burgers, they cam out wrong then we where brought cheese on a plate cold to put on burger. Server never came back to check table for refills, only stopped when we where hollering for the manager. He stated we should of flagged him down for drink refills."

  • "We had a 10 pm reservation as our children were still enjoying the fun in Universal Parks. The server was very friendly & he was exceptional as he took care of our orders even though it was very near closing time when they arrived. Food was very good & it wasn't over priced comparing the other themed establishments. Also had a good time with our kids shooting hoops in the arcade room. Had a great time!!"

  • "Overall our experience was good. The menu had a lot of choices. Food service was fast. The inside was smaller and less impressive than the outside of the restaurant makes it appear."

  • "Food is good, service prompt and solicitous. The staff is all invested in assuring you have a positive experience. Great way to take a break from the theme park and rest your feet. Still has lots of themed entertainment for the family."

  • "This was our vacation trip to Disney World and my son (12) wanted to go eat at NBA city. The food was very good and we were glad to see it was not crowded at the time we were there to eat, which was at 8pm. The service was good and my son loved all the basketball memorabilia. It was a good experience."

  • "We ate here since my son loves bball. We were hoping he could do some shooting for fun but only had the arcade games for shooting. We were disappointed since football was on the tTVs. We would have liked to watch some classic clips or highlights reels of the greats. Ribs were badly burnt but they brought replacements promptly. Overall decent food, but basketball atmosphere was a bit disappointing."

  • "We recently moved to Orlando and have annual passes to Universal, so we are wanting to try all the different restaurant options at CityWalk. NBA City was our least favorite so far. The service was soooo slow. The food was just mediocre, at best, and the only kind of atmosphere was in the form of a few tvs playing. We will not return and will not recommend to family/friends visiting."
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "The food was okay and not anything special. Main reason why I came here was because of basketball. There are two giant screens and multiples televisions spread out in the restaurant. They play ESPN and NBA TV. The place is full of basketball related decorations, like pictures of NBA players and a mural. If you like basketball, check out the place. It was a nice and interesting experience. I would probably go back to see how vibrant the restaurant may get when actual basketball games are on."

We had perfect timing, we got a great booth with a personal tv on espn, my younger brother was in heaven. And our server, Angel, was great! So very hospitable, and friendly. Without a doubt he was the friendliest person I met while at universal. Very attentive without being overbearing. Overall great server, great experience!"
