    The quality of food was amazing. We made a reservation so we were seated right away. I kept having to wait for refills on drinks even though there weren't a lot of people, not a lot of staff.

    This is a very nice location, reasonably priced, nice decor and the food was pretty good. However the service was very poor and the restaurant was uncomfortably cold. The wait staff must have been overwhelmed even though they were not at capacity. We had to track down a waitress whenever we needed anything including water or bread. It took over two hours to get through our meal and most of the time was waiting for something.

    Went for a New Year's Eve dinner. The service was good and the hotel beautiful. The food was subpar. An ordinary buffet and 2 glasses of wine and 2 sodas were over $400. Probably the lowest value received per dollar spent ever. They charged 18% gratuity for a party of 4 (for a self service buffet !). The parking ticket is not validated, they give you a partial discount. Will never go back, nor recommend this place.

    Service was dreadful not worth the 18% gratuity fee. If we had the choice the tip would of been 5% this is what the service was truly worth. We ordered a second glass of wine with our main hot plate. We waited so long for the wine that our food was cold. Wine arrived after we finished our cold plate. Cheese, bread, carved meats, and salad bar were better than than the vegetables. Oh yes, he deserts we're good. The service staff were not attentive to the buffet tables by cleaning then up, replenishing food - overall just making then look attractive. Total bill for 4 with 4 glasses of wine, 4coffees, 1 bottle of water was $396.00 Would never go back and would never recommend this buffet for a holiday dinner.

    Went for a Thanksgiving buffett dinner. Overall the food was good with a great cheese and dessert table. However, they initially sat us near an outside door on a cold night. We asked to be moved and were. However, it was still somewhat could. They had carving stations however, the turkey and prime rib were precut and placed onto a plate under a warming light. The meats cooled off quickly and there was no stuffing to be found!

    The Orlando Waldort Astoria hotel is beautiful , however, the 2013 Thanksgiving buffet at Oscar's was small, set up more like a college cafeteria and did not look festive at all. The first seating at 5pm was already busy and the food had spilled over the serving dishes in the front of the buffet, making it look very messy. I expected more of the stuffing, maybe two or three different kinds, which is, for some people, the best part of the meal. The dishes were marked, but you could not really see what belonged to what. It was confusing for my guest who came from abroad to experience this Holiday for the first time. The martinis had to be returned by two people at the table, who said they tasted terrible!

    The restaurant itself was not very intimate and the noise level was surprisingly loud. The food quality was ok but not what we expected for a high end hotel. The selection of items on the buffet were ordinary - nothing stood out as spectacular: the usual omelet station, basic scrambled eggs, basic bacon and sausage, ordinary potatoes. The fruit and pastry selections were good. The better choices were the fresh squeezed juice bar and the crepe station - but with just one person working this station, the wait was long. Service was great - very friendly staff. To see one child kicking an orange across the restaurant as if it were a soccer ball was a sad commentary on the lack of parental supervision so needed today.

    I went for brunch with friends and I can't say enough about how great the food was. We were torn between the buffet and the menu -- it all looked so good. In the end, we went with the menu and enjoyed every bite! If you go for brunch, prepare for a full-on food coma. I had the Huevos Ranchero tacos in plantain tortillas -- heaven dancing in my mouth!!! That said, I was surprised by the decor - it didn't match the elegance of the hotel or menu. Perhaps the decor (i.e. loud clashing colors, chairs that seemed very inexpensive) was due to the fact that there were many children there (not surprising given the proximity to Disney). The outside dining area was a little more elegant and quiet.

    Great restaurant for breakfast. Excellent buffet, reasonably priced, wonderful service. We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria for a week and started each day at Oscar's. It was the highlight of our family dining experience each day. Without question Oscar's has the most consistently friendly and helpful staff of any restaurant we have had the pleasure of visiting. Oscar's and the Waldorf Astoria Orlando obviously put great emphasis and a high value on VERY friendly, sincere, competent and multilingual staff. Next time we're in Orlando, we will be back at the WA and Oscar's!

    The service was atrocious! I didn't expect this at all, after paying high price for a simple breakfast buffett, with a limited amount of food choices. You had to wait for sometime to get the food, because it took forever to get what was empty replinished. I expected a varied amount of breads, juices, and a wider selection of meats including cold cuts. Would not recommend it for breakfast at all!

    A really impressive buffet breakfast! Loads of food choices and really loved the choices of fresh squeezed juices and homemade pop tarts! Pricey, but I think it was worth the extra $10 compared to the $22 breakfast buffet offerings at next doors Hilton Harvest Bistro which was jammed packed with vacationers and conventioners! Only improvement here at Oscar's would be a better omelet station.

    Oscar's is a fantastic place for breakfast! They have lots of fruit, great fresh juices, fantastic pastry - be sure to try the homemade pop tarts! The hot food selection is great, as is the charcuterie. The coffee is good and although it can be boisterious with all the kids around, it's a great spot. Staff was great and valet parking was $6 after validation.

    The service was wonderful and attentive without being overly invasive. The food was presented well and the variety was fantastic. Everything was simply terrific, indulgent and so very tasty. Even the Chef made the rounds to make sure we were pleased with our meal. It's the Waldorf, you expect attention to detail and they certainly delivered it. Keep in mind that Oscar's only has these special meals occasionally for dinner service, otherwise for breakfast (and lunch I think). Check the Waldorf Orlando website for the next time Oscar's has dinner service planned - you won't regret it. -D, Tampa

    Great service and staff that work hard to make it right. Excellent options with a well stocked daily buffet $30/adult (imcludes coffee, tea, juice) that is rare to find as most buffets are weekend only. Lots of made to order stations such as crepes and omelets. Excellent cheese and meats and pastries selections. Very very good, as are a la carte options. Would be outstanding if had meat carving station for that price. Would recommend if you are tasting at the resort or even for a special brunch! Great hours.

    I went here for the New Year's Eve buffet and was very disappointed with the food and service. I had eaten here on Thanksgiving and I thought it was great, so I came back for New Year's Eve. It cost almost twice as much as it did on Thanksgiving but the quality and choices on New Year's Eve were about half of what they were on Thanksgiving. Plates were not cleared and our silverware was never replaced. There was a pasta station and when I asked the pasta chef for pasta with a cream sauce for my daughter he instructed me to get some macaroni and cheese from the buffet line. The chef wasn't busy when I asked, I was the only one in line and there was no one waiting. I expected so much more from a restaurant at the Waldorf Astoria.
