outstanding. Exceptional food and service. Our #1 go to for a great meal.

Great Service & Food
There was no wait with the reservations. We started with squash blossoms which were incredible. The waiter was resourceful and personable. My wife had the salmon which she loved. Because I'm a vegetarian, the chef made something off the menu. It was medley of all the vegetarian items. It was delicious. I am definitely recommended this place to omnivores and vegetarians alike. We will definitely be back.

Great Chef/Owner Spot
I am from Atlanta where there are many of these nice, Chef/Owner boutique restaurants. They are almost always fantastic, so it was nice to finally find one in Orlando. Good for clients...or dates. Prices are fair for the food quality ($130 for 2 people with 2 glasses of wine and 2 desserts each). Beer and Wine only. I'd like to go again when the weather at night is a little milder. Good outside seating area

Best place to eat in College Park!
Love the menu choices and how they change from week to week. Always uses fresh local ingredients in his dishes. Awesome steaks and amazing fish dishes. We love going and sharing a bunch of appetizers and having a nice bottle of wine on the patio. Wednesday's $5 burger is the best for lunch with a salad (Roasted Beet Salad is my all time fav). Very fun atmosphere. It is a bit noisy but we don't mind because it's usually a lot of our friends and neighbors:) Bar area is tiny but nice.

I really appreciated having our table set up with two high chairs as requested in our reservation. Made lunch with friends a breeze.

OUTSTANDING AS USUAL
The last time I was at K's was over three years ago and I wasn't disappointed. Several years ago I discovered K's and had the most amazing filet there. It has become the standard with which I compare all others to. I do a lot of traveling and have had the opportunity to eat at some very well known and established restaurants and none of them can compare to K's filet.
It is worth the two hour trip for me from my home to have dinner there.

Neat setting-creative menu
Loved K restaurant. Setting is an old house in quaint College Park. Food is fresh and creatively prepared. Menu changes daily. Excellent service. Great for lunch and dinner. Asked for a filet mignon to be prepared extremely rare/Blue, which is often difficult for a chef to accomplish. It was perfect! Enjoyed everything from appetizers to desserts!

Squash Blossoms and Mac & Cheese
We had a great meal at K Restaurant -- accompanied by a terrific waiter and a fun vibe! I had the tempura squash blossoms followed by the swordfish entree; my dinner partner had the wedge salad followed by the lobster mac & cheese. We split two desserts -- salted caramel cheesecake and french toast bread pudding. I enthusiastically recommend every dish! Our waiter was fun and quirky and attentive, but did not hover. If there was a negative at all, it would be the view from the porch, which is either the parking lot or the street, depending on where you sit. It takes a bit away from it all, but not enough to make me stay away. Can't wait to go back!

Perfect Friday Date Night
My Boyfriend and I decided to spend outr Friday date night here. We are pretty big foodies. Since we live downtown and can walk we typically eat somewhere within walking distance. However, we wanted to go somewhere new. I had heard about this place awhile ago and really wanted to try it. Our service was amazing! Our server was excellent attempt entice and accommodating (disappointing I can't recall his name). It was a great night with excellent food!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
everything was excellent. wagyu beef with foie gras and bone marrow risotto was excellent!. wine service was knowledgeable and provided a good selection.
7/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
By Far my Fav!
I took my boyfriend to K for his birthday and we both agreed this is now our favorite restaurant in Central Florida. The food was absolutely devine, our server, Mike (Mikey), was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and always had a smile on his face. We will definately be back soon and will tell all our friends!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of our anniversary traditions. We were not disappointed. The food was amazing as always. The staff is very good at what they do. We will be back!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reviews spot on! FANTASTIC!!!!
I have to start by thanking our waiter Jared. He made our evening! He was very attentive - knew the menu well - and had a great attitude. We read the reviews and thought this would be a great spot for a date! We were in town for an adult get away and love to try new restaurants.You must try the Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab and the Stack salad if they are on the menu they were a great start.For dinner we had a perfectly cooked filet and the gnocchi and it was to die for!And of course we had to do dessert and it too was amazing! The flavor combinations and textures made each course more enjoyable than the next. You really have to eat here if you get the chance!Thanks to everyone at K for an awesome evening!!
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of Orlando's best restaurants with a creative menu and perfectly-prepared food. Try and get Rocky as your waiter - a real pro and hilarious!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good. My
The food was very good. My wife had the Foie Gras and Wagyu Beef. Both were excellent. I had the Ceviche which was very good but I felt it should have been a little colder. Duck entree was cooked perfectly. I would like to see the entrees either come with a vegetable or at least offer vegetables as a side dish
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is AWESOME! I wish I had gone years ago. The menu is outstanding - locally sourced food, creative dishes, new menu every day, etc. The waiter was really friendly, helpful, and attentive. I have already recommended this restaurant to my friends and can't wait to go back.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
K Restaurant has exceeded our expectations! Not only do they have excellent service, but the food is out of this world! The Fried Green Tomatoes are an appetizer I could order each time we come to K! The Filet is of the finest quality and always cooked to perfection (and that comes from a Midwesterner who grew up on great beef!). The service is fantastic as well...always recognizing why we eating at K and then conversing with us at appropriate times throughout the evening. In addition, the servers know how the food tastes and make excellent recommendations based off of described tastes.

Fantastic Dining Experience
I've been wanting to try this restaurant for a while, and it was well worth the wait. My husband and I split and order of the PEI mussels with pork belly appetizer. It was outstanding -- an ample serving for two, and one of the appetizers that I have had all year. The duck breast was also very good.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Choice in Downtown Orl Area
We have eaten at this restaurant many times, and have always found the food consistently fresh and well prepared. Menu changes often, but we've never been disappointed with the food here. The atmosphere is charming and quaint and definitely not a chain restaurant experience. The restaurant is located in a converted 1920s bungalow home with separate rooms and a cozy wine bar as you enter. The chef does a fantastic job and the service is helpful and efficient. This is our go to restaurant in Orlando for a nice dinner out.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friendly staff...waitress know full menu and ready to recommend
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Casual but Trendy
This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando. The meñu selections are always fresh and ordered from local farmers. There is not one thing on the meñu you would not like. Definitely try the pork belly with watermelon if it's on the meñu. It's the best.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed taking part of Magical Dining at the neighborhood restaurant. I started with the beef tartar. The portion was adequate, however, the egg on top seemed a little cold and the yolk did not run into the mix; however, I have heard this to be typical of organic eggs. My friend ordered the fried green tomatoes with crab meat and I felt it to be the better choice. We both had the fish. I felt my fish was a little salty and the veggies a little too oily. My friend enjoyed the seasoning and didnt complain about the oil. This isnt my first time in the establishment and certainly not my last.. All in all its about the food, ambiance and service and all were met. thanks

Food is always top notch!
Food is always top notch! Love having Rocky as our waiter. He's always very entertaining and attentive! There was a large private party going on in the main dining room so it was a bit noisier than we would typically experience, but overall, a great night.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went (5 of us) for the first time for Magical Dining month. It was excellent start to finish. "Top notch" is what comes to mind!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and the service at K was outstanding. The ambiance was not. The restaurant is located in a home and the ambiance does not match the quality of the food. Seats are uncomfortable. Rooms are crowded. The noise level is high. You feel like you are in Mt. Dora rather than in College Park. However, the fresh food and the innovative menu more than makes up for the surroundings. The service staff are cordial and engaging.

Magical dining option
The magical dining experience was my second time at K Restaurant, and I was a little disappointed that the food wasn't as good this time around. The service was still exceptional, and I plan on returning, but the food didn't quite measure up to what I had during my last visit a month ago.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went on a Saturday night and ordered from the magical dining menu. The fresh flounder was amazing. The singing waiter was wonderful. He even coached my husband on how to feed me correctly. The only reason for the 4 stars on ambiance is that is was a little warm where we were sitting. Oh, and the lemon dessert was the perfect end to the meal. I will definitely be back.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was very pleased with K. My first time there, and the service was exceptional. I can't believe how many nice restaurants I go to and they lack in service, not at K! We had 3-4 people serving us and that's when you know and feel like you are being taken care of!!! Also, the food was marvelous!!!
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and ambiance
I came here for my birthday dinner and I wasn't disappointed. It was my first time here and I must say I can't wait to come back. The food was excellent, wait staff very friendly and the restaurant has a "homey" feel. It helps that the restaurant is an old home but it works great. Loved it.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wish we had found it a year ago!
We've been to some wonderful restaurants since we moved to the Orlando area about a year ago, but this converted bungalow home on Edgewater Ave. in the College Park neighborhood can be considered one of the best meals we've had since we moved here. We had been wanting to try it for a while, and were lured in by the special promotion going on across the city that gives diners a Prix Fixe menu (appetizer, entree and dessert) for only $33. One of us did that and the other went off menu. The results in both cases, were simply spectacular - the pork belly appetizer was divine and the pork tenderloin was succulent. The service was fantastic and the meal was paced just right. We feel like we discovered a gem that all foodies should know about.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best duck I ever had! But, everything we had was excellent. The meatballs, beet salad, ceviche, brownie. All yum
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Attended as part of the Orlando Magical Dining Month. Excellent meal as always, but the deserts fell a little short. It is easy to continue to recommend K.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
K has been compared to Ravenous Pig as a chef-owned restaurant, but I have to say the food is WAY better here. We went here for the Magical Dining special and tried pretty much everything that was offered. Food was fresh and well-seasoned. Notables include the beef tartar (good smokiness & not mushy), flounder with succotash (great thyme lemon butter flavor) and the Schnitzel with grits & greens (well balanced & buttery). Only slight miss was the fresh pasta (a bit overcooked & too much fennel in the sausage meatballs). Other reviewers have criticized the building (an old house) and I can see why as there was a slight muskiness when we first entered. Overall the food was fantastic & we had a great experience. Will definitely come back.

More Puddin' Please
The overall dinner was great but can be a bit pricey especially if you get wine. Food was delicious and service was prompt. It’s a great place to go for a date night but the ambience isn’t as fancy I had envisioned. It was simple and quaint. The ever changing menu would bring me back to try something new but truthfully, I’ll be happy with just the bread pudding.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to K many times and they never disappoint! The place was packed @ 6:30 on a Saturday night.

Had a fabulous 11th Anniversary!
My better half and I celebrated our 11th anniversary at K Restaurant. The restaurant itself is a converted home, and the dining room is actually broken up into several smaller rooms, which created an intimate dining experience. We decided to go with multiple appetizers to start - the cheese plate, chicken livers, and deviled eggs. All were very good, but the standout was the chicken livers. They were to die for. For my entrée, I picked the lobster mac and cheese. When I bit into the mac and cheese, the heavens opened up, a ray of light shone down, and a heavenly choir sang "LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" O...M...G... it was the best mac and cheese I've ever had. Ever. If you love mac and cheese and you are in the Orlando area, go to K Restaurant.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great gift certificate!
We dined at K Restaurant with a gift certificate gained at a silent auction. An excellent win! My husband and I ordered 5 small plates to share and, with one exception, they were all superb! The only reservation was the chicken livers. This selection was NOT a small plate, and not one that was going to be shared. The plate was very dry and rather salty. Every other dish was fabulous – deviled eggs, beet salad, beef tartare, and the fried green tomato/crab salad. The Malbec by-the-glass was also a very nice pairing. The service was also amazingly perfect.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Table was ready at the reserved
Table was ready at the reserved time. Great service. Decent beer and wine lists, unfortunately no liquor. BBQ pork belly was awesome. Lobster mac/chz was decadent. Free birthday dessert. Great evening. We'll be back!

Favorite restaurant in Town
Best restaurant in Orlando, make that the greater Orlando area. Food is never short of outstanding and service is second to none.
There are a few places around town that might be close when it comes to food, in particular two restaurants in Winter Park, but K's staff puts it over the top,
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
a welcome surprise find in Orlando
I made the drive up from the Convention Center area. The food was fantastic and the service was friendly and attentive. It will be a regular stop when I travel to Orlando.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I set up dinner for our work team to meet with a new emp that is moving down from NC. The night was perfect starting with our server. He gave us time to look over the menu, when asked for his input he provided spot on recommendations. The wine was awesome as well as the food!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
great farm-to-table venue
The pork belly was outstanding.. the fried green tomatoes were a bit weirdly combined with a stack of something. my colleagues had the filet and I had the grouper. all were terrific. its a great restaurant operating with farm-to-table principals. support them and local farmers!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A of the day - K
We love K for the food freshness, variety and taste! We dine mostly during the theatre season and ask each other why we don't dine more frequently at K. We have recommended K to several friends and co-workers and have also dined with house quests from Sarasota. They loved it as well and still comment frequently about their dining experience.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was crazy good, it made up for the loudness which was more than it was at the last place, a function of the environment. I would go here again in a second and try to be there early enough to get the specialty dinner and dessert everyone wanted.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a Gem!
We were so happy to "discover" this restaurant for our anniversary. I have already recommended it to 3 friends already. It was such a treat to receive GREAT service and food that was equally as great. We cannot thank the restaurant enough for making our first anniversary one to remember!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were pleasantly surprised
We were pleasantly surprised at how delightful this restaurant is. We are relocating to Orlando and we were looking for a special place. We have found it and will make this one of our regular places. The service and the food were truly excellent and we can't wait to return.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service!
My wife and I went for our 10yr anniversary based upon recommendations. We greatly enjoyed ourselves and Stephen, Manager, made sure our visit was perfect. Thank you!

Making a special occasion special
I have wanted to try K ever since I was on a job and went to interview the chef for Visit Orlando.
The atmosphere is contemporary but not pretentious, with decent art hanging and a perfect volume of music and great light throughout lending to the romantic yet relaxed ambiance.
Our server Rocky was gregarious in all the right ways, he was both larger than life, and scarce when he needed to be.
I am still reeling from food, the flavors were so crisp, so complex, so inviting, that even now, several days later I am still thinking about it. The Mac and Cheese was shockingly good, and as my wife pointed out, I kept referring to her baked chicken as the best chicken I had ever had in my life.
Bravo to Kevin, and bravo to K's.
