Tradewinds Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Great Food, Bad Service

    Dined on 5/16/2013
    The food and wine was great but the service was surprisingly uncomfortable - our waiter kept rushing us at one point and then disappeared at another point, we couldn't really figure out what was going on. During this whole time we were the only 3 diners in the restaurant.

    My husband and I were in for the weekend. Found this place on open table and decided to give it a try. The food was very good and the resaurant was very quiet. Nice addition to the hotel. Parking is only downside, $15 self park or $10 valet with validation from restaurant.

  • 25th Wedding Anniversary Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/7/2012
    We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the Renaissance Hotel in Orlando. 25 years ago we spend our Honeymoon at this same hotel. We deceide to have dinner at the Tradewinds Restaurant. The food was delicious. Our server scott was the most humble and pleasant person we had ever had serving us. After our dinner he brought us a delicious desert (Oreo Cheesecake). When we got to our room our server Scott had delivered a bottle of wine with two glass to celebrate and enjoy our evening. We though that was the most amzaing experience ever staying in any hotel. Thank you so much Scott for your genourous gesture.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/17/2012
    Tradewinds has a good variety listed on their menu and everything oredered at our table was gourmet quality. Each table is served a complementary order of chips made in their kitchen. The chips alone are worth the visit. The ambiance is very appealing. Very nice decor, quiet enough to talk, but busy enough to be interesting.

    Tarheelborn1VIP
    Dined on 12/25/2011
    We had Christmas dinner at Tradewinds Restaurant. My daughter had the buffet and loved it but the rest of us ordered off the menu. No one disappointed and everyone felt their food was well prepared and very tasty. Our waitress was very good as well. The only down side was the relative lack of atmosphere in the restaurant. The light were a little too bright for an evening meal. But we would all highly recommend the place.

    I didn't particularly find the it to be a very romantic setting. The serving staff was great, but the menu was quite limited and the servings were small. It's a nice place to eat but I wouldn't necessarily choose it for a special occasion.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/8/2011
    Really enjoyed our dinner at Tradewinds. Staff friendly and helpful, very attentive staff. Reasonably priced and food was excellent. I would definitely recommend to friends and family. If I had to point out one area for improvement, it is to leave a bit more time between courses. We were still eating our appertizers when our main course landed on the table - this made us feel a bit rushed hence the minus 1 score for service above.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/4/2011
    Our food was very tasty and well prepared, but we were generally unimpressed with the service. We were initially seated in a closed section by a host who had no idea what was going on, waited entirely too long to be greeted by anyone, and had a runner who tried to bring us dessert before our entrees came. Get it together!

    Very good overall experience. We went there for Mother's day and were seated immediately. The buffet was fully stocked and wait time for items such as freshly prepared omelets were very reasonable. My kids had fun and my wife enjoyed her meal and the service.

    They upgraded their normal buffet breakfast for Easter and the food was really fresh and tasty. Even later in the morning/early afternoon, they were still replenishing the food with freshly made items.

    It's great to find a restaurant that tries to use organic or locally grown foods. The food was great and the service was phenomenal. I would highly recommend Tradewinds and have done so already. I will be returning in the near future.

  • Tradewinds...a breath of fresh air
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 2/14/2011
    The restaurant is small, and the service is wonderful. The ambiance is soothing and cool, like a cabana with some mellow jazzy tunes in the background. The menu is small but the food is outstanding, so all of the choices are great. Also, this is a place to go for locally grown fare, and organic foods as well. I was completely pleased with my valentine's dinner there, and plan to go back again. Dress is casual, and the prices are very fair.

    Tradewinds is in the Renaissance Orlando was sparsely attended when we were there. We ordered across the board - salmon, steak, french onion soup & caesar salad. All were prepared well. Service was average, not outstanding but not poor. Wine list was lacking but was reasonably priced. If you're staying at the hotel and don't want to go out for dinner this is an acceptable choice.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/25/2010
    We had the Christmas day buffet and although the food was passable there was not one christmas decoration in site. We sat in a booth and thought we could be sitting in any cafetria on any day of the year instead of in the renaissance on christmas day. We were very dissapointed as last year we went to Ritz Carlton Buffet on Christmas day and that was fantastic and had seen some good reviews on tradewinds christmas day buffet so had decided to give that a try. We will definatly be booking Ritz Carlton for next year. The $45 buffet didn't even include a soda !!!!!!!!!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 8/6/2009
    Ordered two appitizers that both read as exciting and very tasty. I was planning to order the steak but decided the second appitizer just sounded like too good an item to pass up. So I ordered their Turkey Club with Heirloom Tomatoes, and Roasted Beets as my apps. The Beets were thin and the choice of cheese was very dry. The tomatoes were tough and not very seasoned. The Turkey tasted like turkey roll bought at a deli counter of a supermarket. I was very disappointed in the quality of the food. If your stuck at the hotel it may be acceptable. I won't be jouneying back.
