    Vitos is a place you will want to go for a special occasion, romantic dinner, or a memorable dinner in Orlando. It's not what you would expect from a family oriented town on International Drive. It's elegant fine dining. The steaks are superb and the service is extraordinary. You will love the atmosphere too.

    We wanted a special occasion restaurant for my wife's birthday. Vito's Chop House is that place. Our appetizers of wood grilled artichokes and crispy eggplant fries were terrific.We chose a bottle of wine from the extensive list. My wife and I ordered the prime ribeye and my son ordered the filet mignon. Our sides were sauteed mushrooms and creamed spinach. The meats are cooked over an 1100 degree oak and citrus wood fire. The flavor infused by these woods are like none I've ever tasted and I've been to many of the finest steakhouses in the country. My son said the filet was fantastic. My wife and I agreed it may have been the best steak we ever had. The service by DJ was also excellent. Vitos Chop House will now be a regular place to eat

    Our 41st anniversary was on September 1, 2014. Vito's Chop House was closed. Because our anniversary meal was not good, we had to stay a second night just to go to Vito's. Our steaks were divine, our server Matt was wonderful. We couldn't have asked for any more for our anniversary do over. Thanks

    Having been to Vito's on several other occasions, I thought this would. Be a great choice for a staff outing while in town. Not so. Service poor. Initially, we were 5 minutes (after seating) before we got a drink order, and mind you, we had asked for water. 8-10 minutes later, we got it. Three (3) times during the evening, we had to ask for water. Two(2) of the meals were. Not good. Simple and plain. The filet was not filet quality meat. Another order for pan-crusted chicken was placed. They were out and the decision was to order the chicken Parmesan (turns out, this is a new item) and it was dry, and over cooked on the bottom. A glass of wine ordered never made it to the table. Vito's was not busy at all. Desserts were awesome.

    Dined on 8/29/2014
    First I would like to say I am never one to complain about much but I didn't have the best experience. We had reservations and we arrived and the restaurant was practically empty but we were sat next to the only people in the restaurant. We sat just in the other side of the wall to where the kitchen was and was able to hear all the kitchen conversations as well as the table next to us. I ordered the $99 tomahawk ribeye. I have ordered this from other resturants and was very happy. The chef comes to the table with a hott plate and serves the meat which was a cool experience. Problem was the steak had been so badly burnt on one side the charged taste overwhelmed the flavor. Other than this I would probably eat there again.

    I dined at Vito's with 3 girlfriends - we were in Orlando for a conference. We had Eduardo as our waiter and he was excellent. Very knowledgable in regards to the menu and the cuts of meat. Although the steaks were "top dollar" we found the prices to be very reasonable for other menu items (sides, soups, drinks, desserts) so overall we found it to be a great value for the dinner. The four of us dined on a wonderful meal ( salad, main course, two ladies had 1 drink each - the other two ladies drank club soda) for a total bill of $210 for the 4 of us. We did not have dessert TOO FULL. Will add they sent over a smapling of the lobster bisque which was to DIE FOR. I would absolutely return to Vito's if /when I return to Fla

    Warm shrimp cocktail. The Steaks were average at best. Not what I want when I'm spending $40+ on a steak. The sides small and came to the table warm not hot. Key lime pie for Desert was a thick paste that lacked any flavor, publix key lime pie is better. I have eaten at some of the best steakhouses in the country and Vito's isn't one of them. Now I know why the place was empty @ 7pm

    My wife and I made our second annual visit to Vito's Chop House this past weekend. We first ate at Vito's last August while I attended an annual conference. First Class dining experience last year; so we decided to visit it again this weekend after I attended the conference. This past Saturday, our server was Eduardo - same great service and same fantastic steaks, sides and desert. Yes, Eduardo did make some recommendations. We could have viewed it as up selling (as stated in other recent negative reviews); but what top flight restaurant doesn't offer you suggestions. Actually, Eduardo saved us $30.00 on a wine selection and his other suggestions were spot on! Look, it's Vito's Chop House - not Longhorn's or Outback.

    This is a decent chop house with good ambiance, a very good bar (try a Tito's martini), good wine selection and good food. The price is about what you would expect in a higher caliber steak/chop house. For my wife and I it was about $205 for our food and an $85 bottle of wine. She had filet mignon with one side and I had a ribeye with one side.

    We started with a cocktail from Gil the bartender. This guy can mix a cocktail like nobody's business. Our first course was the shrimp trio, then the Wedge salad and then their new special, the 1lb lobster and 1lb steak. Yes course we had a white and red wine, Szinsky pinot gris and a 2009 Chateau Montrose. The Montrose is drinking sooo good. The tall bald manager fellow checked on us several times. He was constantly moving through out the restaurant all night. Sandra the waitress always does a Great job. She was right there with more water, hot towels, more wine. We will be back at Vito's within a couple of weeks.

    Food here was of good quality but the servers are obviously trained to go through the menu in minute detail and upsell which was too much. It was also lacking atmosphere with only a few tables filled when we were there, even though we were placed in the corner because we were with a child. I'd try other restaurants before here.

    It was a special occassion, and we heard rave reviews from friends. We were not impressed at all. The Filet Mignon was very tough, we had it cooked medium. The ceasar salad was good but not outstanding though I did appreciate that the salad was cut into tiny pieces. The bread was good. The service though was excellent. Our waitress Sarah did a great job in servicing and explanaing the different cuts of beef. For the price, it was very expensive. I have had better quality of filet mignon from Publix's supermarket at a much lower price that was much more tender than the beef at Vito's. We love fine dining but know there are other places that we can go to.

    I was at Vito's 5 years ago and at the time a friend had just told me about having a steak PITTSBURGH style. So, I tried it and I loved it. I love WELL DONE! Every since I had it Pittsburgh I have never had a well done steak again. I now get my steaks medium Pittsburgh. The staff at Vito's was very helpful and accommodating, we had 4 kids with us (2,4,8 & 8) and not one time did they say anything about the noise or actions of the kids(not that they were loud and out of control) and we sat next to other people that was also dining. Not only was the server (sandra) very attentive, also the manager kept checking on us. I can't wait to get back to Vito's (orlando) for that steat and creamy spinach!

    The first server I had went by the name DJ, he was horrible. I took my newly wed Army husband there over the July 4 weekend we drove from savannah and went to Vito's- the recommendation of my sister. Dj did not do the meat presentation he sarcastically said the olives were to clean your palettes and he had on an air assault pin insignia but was then offended by the question "where have you been stationed" I think he was a prior service imposter and either way his service was disappointing and disgusting. I asked him to have his manager come to the table so that he could be replaced. He was replaced with Marco who was outstanding. Honestly for the way we were treated initially and the price we paid I would if been happier at Charley's
