This has now become my favorite local steakhouse in Orlando. All the others don’t even exist in my mind anymore. From the customer service, to the attention to details, to the food. Everything was aces

We enjoyed another birthday celebration at Christner's and as usual the food was wonderful. We asked to be seated with our waiter from another visit and that request was accommodated . Cameron was as professional and meticulous with his service as we remembered. He is an important part why our experience is always so enjoyable. The food was prepared perfectly and we never felt rushed. Christner's is a favorite for us for so many reasons. Can't wait to go again.

One of the steaks was the incorrect cut and was replaced promptly. The server told us that the wrong steak was picked up by the runner from the kitchen.

The food is always top notch. This is our very favorite restaurant in the Orlando area and we have been know to drive from Naples Fl just to eat there. The orange cake dessert is amazing. We also shared a 12 oz filet and Potatoes. The bread is also wonderful. Don’t miss this restaurant.

We had pretty high expectations coming into the restaurant because of a recommendation from a friend. It seemed like there was a strict dress code according to the reservation, but we saw guests dressing down and we were thrown off by that.

The food was good as expected, but the service could have been better. We have dined at many other steak house restaurants, and we did not get the same vibe/ambience at Christner’s as we thought we would.

Food was moderate based on the prices. Beef Wellington was soggy on the bottom, pastry wasn't crispy all the way around and it was also warm, not hot at all. The Alaskan crab was also Luke warm, not hot. The fried oysters had too much breading as well, though had a good quantity for the price. We had to send the lobster Mac and cheese back as if was completely full of oil. We couldn't eat it. Disappointed as it was our 22nd wedding anniversary and we saved for this dinner. Probably won't go back as we don't want to be disappointed again.

Waited 20 mins after being seated to be greeted by a server. We finally got someone's attention to take our order. She comped a drink, which was the right thing to do, but having to flag down a server after a long wait is unacceptable in fine dining.

The service wasn't great. We requested things multiple times, since our waiter was very forgetful. We sat & waited at least 10 minutes before being acknowledged.

Went for our son’s 12th birthday. He loves going here on special occasions. Luigi’s service was on point. Got seared tuna, fried shrimp (10 year old kid), king crab and a 22oz dry aged ribeye for the birthday boy. He was in heaven. Had shrimp cocktail, cheese plate, and onion rings for appetizers and chateau potatoes and asparagus for sides. All entrees were phenomenal. Onion rings are the best we’ve ever had. Sides great and shrimp cocktail was great. Cheese plate was good, but would have liked to see some more exotic cheeses.

Love this place. High end fine dining but doesn't break the bank. The steaks are delicious. What I loved is that if your steak is under cooked, (I like mine med well) they bring out a super hot plate that cooks it up and you dont have to send it back. I love that after slicing in strips and dropping on the hot plate for a couple seconds it was perfect. Don't skip desert. Double chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream is superb. Service is top notch.

I went to this restaurant on July 12th, 2021 for my birthday and my overall experience was great! The ambiance is a perfect setting for a special night. The wine selection is large however they don’t have any super sweet red wines only semi. Although, I originally wanted lamb chops they were currently out, the veal was lovely and cuts with a butterknife. My sides were steamed broccoli and lobster Mac and cheese, both were super good but the Mac and cheese was slightly runny. All in all I definitely recommend this for anyone looking for fine dining.
