    Waiters staff were pleasant, but not as attentive some times. Food was very good - large portions, but extremely pricey. You go for the entire experience. The piano bar was the best/ very old school and a great place to have an after dinner drink. We will return.

    Our food was outstanding as was our primary waiter Victor. Support staff must have been green as the hostess did not provide a wine list when seating us (so we skipped the wine order) and the appetizer was delivered without condiments, but quickly remedied by Victor. Again the food was outstanding as usual.

    Poor customer service by waitress…. was gone for a long period of time… The worst incident was we ordered a piece of orange cake to take home with us and they did not give us the sauce for the cake which is what gives the cake taste…. no one checked to see if the order was complete, including the waitress

    Although the service was excellent, the food fell short to expectations. Calamari were too spicy and didn’t say it was, lobster bisque too salty, Brussels sprouts no flavor AT ALL and lamb shops were alright. For the value I thought I was gonna have a great meal, well it was not the case at all. I am not picky at with food but this was beyond disappointing

    Not sure where to start!! I have been in hundreds of steakhouses. These guys are the BEST of the BEST !!!!! We are regulars at Christner's, From the valet ,the hostess staff and all you would meet before dinner are super employees. Never a request goes undone !!! The food is always served Hot and as you would want at a top notch steakhouse !! The steak for two is our favorite . Really all the steaks are excellent. No steakhouse in Orlando can beat these guys!! All the sides are a great size for sharing !! The staff and servers are the best in the business !! Dave and Jim run a tight ship and they have the best crew !! They are a 10 for 10 !!!! The bartenders are always doing a super great job. Luigi and Katlin are always the star servers. They are always ready for making us a great night out. Really all the servers are wonderful. For a great night out visit Christner's and you cannot go wrong.

    Food and service is always excellent here. Everything we’ve tried on the menu has impressed us. They have somehow perfected the fresh bread and butter you start with. The crab cakes and ahi tuna are a must. They steak is melt in your mouth and the sides are perfectly complimentary. Our kids have accompanied us recently and they said it was the best steak they’ve ever had and they were so excited to see the chocolate cake arrive. We always end the meal with their famous orange cake. It’s a meal you’ll think about all week.
