Diner Reviews
  • "We have always enjoyed Park Plaza over the years. Years of many good meals mostly evening. Recently have started going to Sunday brunch. The menu has something for everyone. The atmosphere seems fun and cheerful. Dining room feels right for Sunday family meal. Our food has been consistently good. The wait staff helps make the meal. Overall an easy to recommend choice anytime but fun Sunday meal."

  • "Food was ok. We went on a groupon. Other than the discount it was very over priced."

  • "I had a groupon and didn't expect much. We waled into the hotel part and the guy couldn't even get out from behind the desk in back to show us what dooes he was referring toto get to the restaurant. Ambiance nice except for the plastic ceiling and bunches of exposed wires. Food and service was outstanding however and we were pleasantly suprised. My only suggestion would be to install a door between bar and restaurant and the cigaratte smoke was choking near entrance. We will go back but to another table."

  • "One of the things that struck me the most about this restaurant is that the kitchen did not look stressed and hurried---when my food came out and I tasted it, I knew why---we had jumbo scallops and the sea bass, and both dishes were prepared perfectly, with amazing taste! Thank you for paying attention to what really matters---the taste of the food!"

  • "Needed a fast dinner before going to an event at Rollins. We had the King Crab legs that were sliced, fresh, easy to eat and tasty. We started with the carpaccio. The twiced baked potato was awesome. Jason was friendly and prompt but a little chatty for our taste. He definitely knew the menu and was a very good server. Just not sure everyone enjoys the additional effort to inform or relate personal experiences with food. Would recommend Park Plaza Gardens to anyone anytime."

  • "We requested a seat in the gardens because we have been there in the past, and it was a lovely setting. Unfortunately, due to daylight savings time, if you are seated in there before dark, you are looking at a nasty roof with stained plexiglass inserts and wires hanging everywhere. The calamari appetizer was like eating jerky. The chicken was rock hard and couldn't even cut through it. The seafood salad was a bunch of lettuce with no vision of seafood (sprinkles of pieces of unrecognizable bits) The waiter was very upbeat and positive, so that would perhaps have been the highlight of the entire experience. So I'd say, go for drinks, but leave before you consider eating anything in the restaurant!"

  • "The food was very good, but very expensive for the setting. Our waiter was weird... He would interrupt our table of six conversation, get our attention and then not know what to say so then began to ramble stiltedly and nonsensically? leaving us all looking from one to the other? High end price dining for low end surroundings!"

  • "From the moment we walked into the restaurant to moment that we left the service was amazing. Everybody was so tentative. We were given the best seat in the house and the waiter was very informative and friendly. He made sure we were very well taken care of. They truly made our anniversary night a beautiful night. The ambiance was gorgeous and the food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Great place for any occasion."

  • "Took too long for food to come. Bloody Mary bar is a bloody joke-no olives. One meal had to be sent back. Our party was bothered by other people waiting to be seated--hostess seemed to be ignoring them"

  • "Service was very slow and there restaurant was nearly empty, so no obvious reason for the drawn-out service. Took at least 15 minutes before the bread was served. Chopped Salad plate included small shrimp that were cut in half; very under-whelming presentation; insufficient dressing. I requested no onions on the salad, and I could still taste them, even though it appears they removed them. Lovely setting, as always, but not worth the check."

  • "Beautiful atmosphere in the atrium. Waiter (John) was very good and pleasant. Appetizers were a bit pricey for the size (lobster escargot was delicious! and the burrata tomato salad was nicely split for the two of us. Entrees were fantastic - lamb mix grill was three parts of perfect and the Gulf Shrimp with grits was divine. Will be back!!!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "John was an excellent server. Recommended wines, even wines not on the menu and was very attentive to our needs. Had two appetizers, Calimari and Lobster Escargot style both delicious. Entrees were Giant Scallops (huge) and Crab stuffed Grouper, both very tasty and melt in your mouth good. Dessert was awesome! Atmosphere was very outdoor garden like. Had a self playing piano and the lighting was perfect. Was not very busy because it was Monday, but I like quiet intimate anyway. It was an early Valentine dining opportunity and the perfect setting for a romantic evening."

  • "Something changed. The food, service, and desserts where always 5 star. Your staff needs polishing and food needs tasting. A new chef? Don't know, however, preparation, taste, display completely a miss. ---It was a special occassion, Or waiter was good, hostess/wait staff needed polishing, Lob Bisque beefy? no cream" Replacement fish Chowder/better but also brown gravy. Main course, My Steak, missing ingredients, steak good but would have been better with the goat cheese. Desserts/call Annie Pies, Your menu features a three layer cake from Miss. We ended up with choc. ck. with syrup like Hershey's and Mart. pudding Banana no taste, missing liquor? Something is really wrong! Please fix it. *Old Fashion from the bar/very good waiter."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here the other night. We started out with the crispy calamari appetizer - this was awesome, the calamari were mixed with greens and a sweet pepper sauce, very tasty. I had a New York strip, which was cooked to perfection, and my wife had the crab-stuffed grouper, also excellent. For sides, the truffle mac and cheese is not be missed. Overall great experience!"

  • "Food was good. Order a filet minion medium rare but was closer to rare and one side was not cooked as much as the other. Had it been then would most likely been on medium rare side. Wife had shrimp and grits and was very good. We had a side of Brussels Spouts that were very good and a large quantity. Service was good but slow/jumpy. Maybe the server was new. Took extended time for drinks to be served and bread to be served. Server was very pleasant and cordial. Very low noise level and easy to carry on a conversation."

  • "We had a lovely birthday meal for a friend. We each used a groupon coupon that was $69 - included 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 glasses of wine and 2 desserts per coupon. They gave us a $20 credit on the wine towards a bottle so each couple got a bottle. My meal was exceptionally good - a sunflower crusted tuna over some sort of eggplant saute and it had wonderful seasonings. The tuna was a tad over cooked but still amazing flavors and I almost licked the plate. My dessert was also great - a coconut cake that was extremely moist. My friend had the over the top chocolate cake. My husband had the lamb served three ways and he liked that.My only surprise was that they removed all the lovely banquettes that lined the wall and were so lovely."

  • "Our experience started off rough. After being seated we noticed that 3 tables that were seated after us had been greeted, etc & we were still just sitting there. It was close to 10 minutes when I got the managers attention: Joe & he did his best to set everything in motion quickly. We appreciated that, but wondered how long we woulve just sat there without anyone noticing. That left a bad taste in my mouth especially because it was a birthday dinner for my husband & by this point he was aggravated. The good: our food was amazing. Our waitress & Joe made great suggestions on food/drinks. It's a super cute restaurant, decorated well and feels upscale, but not stuffy. Overall, I'd recommend it...as long as you don't get the "forgotten table""

  • "John was our waiter, and I wish I could have him as a server every time I dined out. He provided phenomenal service and was very funny, so you get a two for one! Two of us ordered filets, and we both ordered them medium. They were medium well to well done. However, they were still delicious so we didn't say anything or send them back. We were just at Le Coq Auvin the weekend before, and the filets at Park Plaza Gardens were even better. A friend had the salmon with the artichokes, and she said it was out of this world. Overall, I would highly recommend Park Plaza Gardens for a special occasion, romantic dinner or when you have guests from out of town. It's a tried and true restaurant, which continues to be a staple for nice dining."

  • "We lived nearby but this was our first visit in many months. Previous visits were good. This was disappointing. The food was mediocre. But the service was very poor. The food was delivered slowly. The waiter often forgot our requests for additional items like wine, salad dressing, extra sauce for the fish, etc To top it off we were overcharged a glass of read wine."

  • "We usually dine here for all special occasions- especially the holidays. This experience was a let down. Food not up to par, taking too long for the food to arrive and just plain a bad experience. And- also where was the piano player??? We at least had a fantastic server- who obviously needs to look for a another job because he is too high caliber for this restaurant."

  • "Server was efficient but seemed rehearsed, not genuine except to regular customers Food was so so, not much flavor and way too much oil/butter Appetizer was not bad but had little to no flavor and the tortilla chips that were served with it were stale Lobster had egg batter....strong egg flavor that over powered the taste of the lobster Desert and coffee was best part of the meal Singer entertaining the bar over sang the soft piano Christmas music playing which was annoying"

  • "The food was very good &reasonably priced. Upon arrival we stood for over 5 minutes at the greeting desk before being greeted by anyone - there were no other diners in the restaurant when we arrived at 6:30 & no servers in the restaurant that acknowledged our arrival. Our server disappeared for lengthy periods of time throughout our service. After completion of our dessert we waited over 30 minutes for our server to return to the table and deliver our check. After delivering our check it took another 10 minutes for another server to arrive with our receipt and thank us for our business. Our original server never thanked us for coming. The food, which was very good, is deserving of better service to complement the overall dining experience."

  • "SURE THE PRICE WAS $33.00 PER PERSON, BUT THE AMOUNT OF FOOD WAS VERY LITTLE. MY FISH WAS DROWNED IN A SAUCE, I EXPECTED THE COD TO BE A FILET. THE SALAD WAS JUST A FEW PIECES OF MIXED GREENS WITH A SUPER SWEET DRESSING. THE WAITER WAS GOOD. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE."
