Diner Reviews
  • "Waiters are very friendly and Customer Service Oriented."
    Dined on 9/10/2014
  • "The courtyard setting is nice but showing its age; it seems a bit forced/fake now compared to 20 years ago. An occasional drop of water would hit the table to make you feel like you were really in an outdoor setting. The food was good; but typical for what I expect in the price range. Nothing made me stop and say WOW. The service was good. I don't feel the need to rush back. I would go back; but I would just as soon try a new place."

  • "Food is substandard for this type of restaurant. Restaurant seems past its prime and needs renovating."

  • "Outstanding Service from Bryce, excellent Appetizers (Calimari) (Mussels plentiful), 16oz Rib Eye was done to. Perfection (Medium [Pink Center]) Swordfish & Snow Crab Legs were prepared delightfully fresh and good sized portions, Creme brûlée & Coconut Cake were also outstanding, would recommend anytime!!!"

  • "The restaurant is hidden at the back of the Park Plaza Gardens Hotel Bar. It is a quaint closed courtyard environment. Service was fast, attentive and efficient, without being intrusive or rushed. The food was some of the best I've had on Park Avenue. The wine list is mostly inexpensive and not bad, but they had few mid-range ($40 - $80) choices. My wife started with a generous serving of the Cast Iron Roasted Black Mussels. I had a large plate full of the Beef Carpaccio. The Beef was good, but the fried egg was unnecessary). Both were very good For entree my wife had the Crab Stuffed Grouper and I had the Jumbo Lump Crab Ravioli which was in a nice sauce with a good serving of baby shrimp. Desserts were well sized and delicious."

  • "exactly what I was looking and hoping for! And LOVED leaving by back passageway, into our fabulous hotel, Park Plaza..the 1920's-era hidden gem of a divine boutique inn..IN THE HEART OF WINTER PARK'S PARK AVENUE!"

  • "The place is really cute. But slow and quiet for a Friday night. Service was good. Food was good but not very creative. But... we found a big thick hair in the dessert and it just spoils everything."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The food choices were superb and we will go back again. We did have a little trouble choosing and our choices were perfect. I had a rib eye and my wife had a filet. They were both cooked perfectly. We enjoyed the quietness of Park Plaza Gardens. No hustle and bustle so we were able to talk without a lot of background noise. It was date night for us, so this made it especially nice,"

  • "The crab stuffed grouper was delicious as were the desserts. The waiter went out of his way to make our anniversary special. We were indoors but it was decorated to look like we were in a garden. All in all it was a great time."

  • "We were very delighted by the quality of food and the beautiful outdoor seating area in this restaurant. Service is very polite and accommodating. The only dissapointing thing is that we were there tocelebrate my 50th birthday and it was completely ignored. Details are very important and just by saying Happy Birthday it would have made a great difference."

  • "A birthday dinner finally brought us to Park Plaza Gardens after living in Winter Park for many years and saying we should go there one day. The service and food were excellent, exactly what I would expect on Park Ave."

  • "Dining at Park Plaza was a wonderful experience. The food was perfectly prepared and the portions very generous. Our server John was the utmost host and professional. The wait staff worked together to provide a very memorable evening. I would highly recommend Park Plaza Gardens."

  • "I have nothing to complain about with the food, is was to DIE for, the atmosphere? You can't do better, endless mimosas? I had to request more orange juice haha it was great. However, I was FURIATED with the attitude of the wait staff towards my friend and I. I understand a nice restaurant is expensive, and when 2 younger girls come in - staff might not see a huge tip on the table. However, I am a huge tipperand gave the man 25% even though I wanted to give him 5%. Reason I didn't was the attitude he had was that he expected us to tip poor and so served us poorly, but I watned to prove him wrong. Zacory. I will make sure to request sitting outside next time, I spoke to some locals and they said that's where the good service is."

  • "This place was amazing. Don't be fooled by exterior look and front window bar. The gem is inside. Jason our waiter was fantastic. Food and ambiance were romantic. The crab stuffed grouper was to die for. Check it out!"

  • "Everything was great except row of bench seats were really uncomfortable. That's the only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars. Mussels were awesome!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I love the fact that the inside dining area feels as if it is outside with, all of the greenery coving the ceiling (but needs to cover more so that you don't see all of the leaves,etc.)mGalette was very good; Benedict had 2 eggs that were almost hard boiled and had to be sent back; chicken/waffles good,but didn't know chicken would be tenders. Mimosas good, BUT they can't call thier sparkling wine champagne (not from France) If Bloody Mary is unlimited, don't charge for refills w/o saying. if advertisement says choice of vodka for the price, don't then say it is a particular type of vodka. I brought these to the server's attention, and while she understood and was gracious, this to me is false advertising and I would not return. Principle"

  • "The food was excellent. Everything came out cooked perfectly and in a timely manner. Service was dull. It was our first time there and our server wasn't very familiar or helpful with suggestions and favorite items on the menu. I wish the cocktail menu had better choices but the food menu is absolutely amazing."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Service is extraordinary. Ambience relaxing and upscale. Food portions are the right size. Setting is romantic. Generous refills on mimosas ans champagne. Menu is varied enough for all tastes. Price ranges on a la carte offering are fair. Parking is convenient."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food was quite good, but the menu should be jazzed up a little."

  • "I had dined at this restaurant back in the day when it was the classiest restaurant in Winter Park. I took my wife there recently hoping to at least have some great food and service. Sadly, at present the restaurant is not even a ghost of its former self. The waitstaff tried really hard to cover the details, but to no avail. The food coming out of the kitchen and its presentation was mediocre at best. Perhaps it had just reopened with new chefs, waitstaff and management, I really don't know, but they all thought they were doing wonderfully well. They were not. We wish them well, but my wife and I will likely not be returning."

  • "This place has it all. The front of the restaurant has a pretty popular and busy bar. We started with a drink there before our reservation. After our drink we go to the back where the dining area is, completely different. The dining area is elegant, quiet and peacefull with a very old world feel. The level of service was great, friendly and knowledgable. I had the double pork chop and my wife had the seared Tuna, both very good. I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice romantic night out. "

  • "With all of the options for brunch in the area, PPG is not usually my first choice. We decided to give it a go and it was ok. Nothing to get excited about and nothing to go running back for, but it filled us up and we had plenty of mimosas. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Service was great. Our entrees were served very quickly. All of the items we ordered were very good. The breakfast potatoes were very tasty without being greasy. The salmon breakfast dish and the omelets were very good. The French toast was good but was a little too much. I probably would not order the French toast again. We enjoyed the endless mimosas and the build your own Bloody Mary bar. The only slight disappointment was that there was only one tomato base for the Bloody Mary (I believe that a choice of a few different tomato bases were advertised) and the horseradish was not put out for the bloody Mary's until we were about to leave. Otherwise, a very enjoyable Sunday brunch to celebrate our anniversary. "

  • "dinner here was very, very tasty. good menu choices that would fit most any type of taste. they had my favorite wine. it was a little pricey but very nice for the 'priceyness'. made reservations by email and they sent a coupon for $15 off the next bill of $50. or more. spent it a few days later and i had the same experience."

  • "The food was always good for lunch. Now substandard. Lettuce on a sandwich room temp very wilted and old. They brought me new lettuce and said sorry. Oh well. Their A/C was down and not enough fans. I live in the area very disappointed in Park Plaza Gardens today! Portions are smaller. I have eaten here at least 6 times in the last year. This was my last time. The staff is always very good. The kitchen needs help. "

  • "We picked this restaurant after we saw such wonderful pictures on the website. The pictures did not do it justice. It's beautiful! And the food was so delicious... there wasn't a morsel left!! Could've licked the plate!! Mmm. We will be returning!"

  • "Service was slow, we sat for 30 minutes before we received our salads. Drinks took just as long. I got the tuna entree which was under seasoned and had no flavor. My husband ordered the filet and it was over cooked. Once we finished our dinner we sat for at least 20 minutes before our server cleared our table. Maybe if the restaurant was packed I would expect less, but it wasn't we were the only table there. The only good part about my experience at park plaza garden was the company we had with us. "

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "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!"
