    We took our very good friends from Pittsburgh on Saturday evening. Everything was perfect. We had a private room which was wonderful. The food was exceptional, as always. And our Server was outstanding! She was knowledgeable, professional and a genuinely kind person. Our friends asked that we go back the next time they’re in town. We will be happy to oblige. Hands down, Christner’s is the best restaurant in Orlando.

    The publicized dress code is not enforced!! We went there for my significant others birthday and wore attire as per the dress code on the site. Upon arrival most other diners were wearing jeans, baseball caps etc. If there is to be a dress code then enforce it. We would have dressed accordingly and smartly but probably not as semi formal as we were. Food was good, service excellent - Anthony was very good - prices high and portions could be smaller with less waste. To go boxes definitely needed.

    I’ve tried lots of upscale steakhouses and this one is one of the best. The service is outstanding and the actual steak might be the best I’ve ever had. They also had one of the best wine lists that’s I’ve seen with many selections from small but top notch wineries that most people haven’t heard of.

    Horrible experience, usually love it here but was seated in a back room with horrid lighting and a fake fireplace on a monitor. Bad enough to be seated there, worse when halfway through our meal the staff started turning down the tables for the night which was honestly rude. For what you pay price wise, the ambience should match. Also my husband’s steak was severely overcooked and they told him it would be a while if he wanted another one…

    The tuna appetizer and the orange cake dessert were both phenomenal, if it weren't for them I might have given food a 1 star. I got the 24oz porterhouse that was 18oz at best with very little meat on the bone, very disappointing. My wife got the 12oz filet that also seemed small. We got the lobster mac n cheese that could have spent more time in the oven. Normally I wouldn't care about these small details but it's a steakhouse and the items are priced very high compared to other restaurants. Also, their drink prices are also on the higher end which is why I rated it low in value.

    Had been to the restaurant in some years I thought I was going to have a wonderful time was placed in a very loud room. Very cramped sat in the booth tables on my chest I’m 6 foot three 275 pounds and it wasn’t comfortable the booth was extremely dirty mirrors were dirty half an of dust all over the top of the booth not a clean place as far as the food state came out first time completely rare I asked for over medium second time came out outside came out burnt potatoes were runny and cold. I asked for a napkin twice never got it. I asked for a double bourbon with Coke the gal man told me will bring it in a tall glass. You can put the coke as you would like to to me that screams, we don’t know how to make a proper whiskey drink. So to be honest, my wife and I did not enjoy ourselves and we were celebrating Valentine’s Day. As I say, plan for the worse and hope for the best in this case, I can’t say that ain’t 100% true
