    Dined on 1/14/2010
    I have been coming to PPG for 29 years. This is their 30th anniversary and they have pulled original menu items from 30 years ago with the prices from that period; two full pages for the month of January 2010. Lots of great choices at 30 year prices or pick from the more contempory menu. The food is alwasy delicious. There were plenty of wines to choose from. Although the place was slammed last night the service was excellent and attentive. However, the food came very, very slowly and I WASN'T with a hot date just a girlfriend so it wasn't like we needed the time between courses. Beautiful in there, great place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/7/2010
    We decided to take advantage of the retro 1980’s menu that Park Plaza Gardens is using to celebrate its 30th anniversary this month (01/2010). I started with the SEAFOOD CEVICHE. It would have been a bargain at twice the price of $3.25. We all tried the WILTED SPINACH SALAD. It was full of yummy mushrooms, bacon bits and the warm bacon dressing was fantastic. I had the CRABMEAT IMPERIAL IN CASSEROLE as my entrée. It was great, but when I saw my friend’s TENDERLOIN OF BEEF STROGANOFF, I knew he’d made the better choice such a cold night. Park Plaza Gardens is a landmark in Winter Park, but to get to enjoy such a great meal at a really affordable price in times like these is a real treat and a gift. Thanks, we will be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/17/2009
    I have always enjoyed Park Plaza Gardens especially for Brunch, the food has always been consistent, except for my Friday night diner. My partner and I ordered the scallops and shrimp dish which were a bit over cooked, which seems to be the norm for most restaurants that we have visited lately. I was looking forward to having them there because we have never had a bad meal yet at Park Plaza Gardens. We both were dissappointed with our meal but that won't stop us from visting for Brunch, as much as I love a good cooked scallop entre, I suppose I just need to stop ordering them at all restaurants. Our server was JJ, she was very freindly and attentive and gave exceptional service.

    Great atmosphere - great food - great service.....Calamari appetizer was cooked perfect and one of the best we've ever had. The Rack of Lamb and Crab stuffed Grouper were outstanding. With so many delicious sounding items it was hard to choose but all were beyond expectations - including the salad and creme brulee. It was an anniversary dinner to remember!

We felt like we were in a private northern restaurant like in NYC. Our server was amazing. And when I made reservations on this Web site, it asked for special instructions. I wrote down that it was my bf birthday so at lunch they surprised us with a delicious cake and candle. He was surprised. We will for sure be going back!

    We have been dining at Park Plaza Gardens since 1979. Over the years there have been many changes in management; some good, some not so good. I'm afraid that our recent experience wasn't so terrific. Most notably, the service was rough and the food quality was less than average. Mind you, I am comparing our experience on Sunday with many years of fabulous dining memories at this iconic Winter Park establishment. I don't even know where to begin to offer suggestions in improvement as pretty much everything was so below par. I am saddened to have returned to this favorite place to find it so diminished in quality.

    The food, as has been in the past, was very good. The atmosphere was also wonderful. The only problem was that our entrees came to the table about 1 hour, maybe more, after we were finished with our salad. Our server did not check on us the entire time. The manager did give us complimentary desserts to make up for the delay. We will go back. The food is worth it.

    What a perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. Our daughter turned 21 and we wanted to have a nice lunch with her since she had plans with her friends for dinner. We drove over from Tampa and ran a little a little late but PPG graciously held our reservation. The truffle fries are not to be missed. Great Clam Chowder and sandwiches. My husband had the salmon and shared some with me and it was cooked perfectly. The food was fabulous and they brought out a Creme Brulee with a candle when we were done. Great Waiter, too.

    Nice dining room but music loud at brunch/ Food and service only fair- disappointing. Sever seemd to have little idea of service, more only bringing food to table serving Salmon galette overcooked; not enough meat in tenderloin salad. Somewhat redeemed itself by following through on special reservation request. A person in party was celebrating 10th birthday. Server arrived with a piece of chocolate flourless cake with a fiery sparkler at dessert ime. 10 year old's jaw dropped- absolute success!!!!!

    Service was nearly non-existent! The restaurant was empty and my two guests and I sat for an inordinate amount of time just waiting for someone to offer us water or take our order. About 4 or 5 members of the wait staff were gathered by the kitchen entrance and just standing around. We eventually flagged them down by waving our arms in the air (just what you want to do in a nice posh restaurant!).

    I had my department there for lunch. They are not doing a very big lunch business which is too bad as the food is superb. I imagine that the price of the lunch menu has a good deal to do with that as it is quite pricey. But the ingredients were very fresh. I had the Mussels in white wine sauce followed by the spinach salad. Both were fabulous and uniquely their recipes. The wait staff was not very seasoned and clumsy. Not expected for that type of dollar.

    Very accommodating---we changed our reservation from a party of 6 to 8 and then to 10. The food was delicious. It had been several years since many in our group had dined here, and they all raved about the food and said they would be back. Impeccable service---I think our server's name was Colleen. Everything flowed smoothly. Food and drinks served at a relaxed but attentive pace. She even arranged for separate checks for us and efficiently dispatched the bills at the end. A perfect evening.

    I love the food at PPG, but every time we go there is some kind of skrew-up with our meal (train your people!). This time we could not get our favorite table because it was for four people, even though the restaurant was 2/3 empty the whole time we were there. My dinner (some kind of marinated ribeye special) was great, but it would have been even better if had been what I had ordered (ribeye with the bone in -- why ruin a good piece of beef with soy). They brought a free desert for my birthday, which was nice, but then it took 10 minutes for the waiter to return with the check. Great food, work on the service!
