Best steak ever, hands down. This place is the best in the area for a special occasion celebration. Excellent wine list....service perfect. We celebrated an anniversary and we were congratulated by the owner, with a complimentary dessert... very nice!
Absolutely the best steak experience in metro Orlando!
Great food and service celebrating my girlfriends birthday
Excellent experience! I would definitely recommend this wonderful restaurant. Began with the crab cake appetizer (WOW), Lamb Chops and Filet Oscar as entree’s, broccoli and potatoes as sides, great wine selection and the Mandarin Orange Cake is to die for! We will definitely look forward to our return visit!
We had Dave as our waiter the most personable and professional we thoroughly enjoyed him he made our meal delightful and both birthdays we were celebrating
Christner’s is our go to celebration restaurant and our anniversary dinner was outstanding as always. The food was fantastic as always and we were treated very special all evening. We love the piano music and Jerry made sure to play “our song” as well as every single favorite we could think of. Eduardo was or server for the evening and service was impeccable from beginning to end. He did not hover but was never far away and he anticipated our every need. He was also very knowledgeable about the very extensive wine list and made sure we were happy with our choice. I highly recommend Christner’s for any special occasion or anytime you just need a special treat.
My husband and I celebrated our 7 yr anniversary at Cristner's and i must say they never disappoint. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the Mandarin orange cake is to die for. The service and ambiance were incredible. Will definitely be back.
Amazing Food and Outstanding service
Excellent food and service as always!
The food and customer service are always outstanding
We visit Orlando once per year and have always reserved one day for Charlie's Steak House, as it was our top restaurant in the area. A friend recommended Christner's. We now have a new favorite in town. Warren was out waiter and was outstanding not only in food/menu knowledge, but also the wine/drink selections. A warm personality and eagerness to please the customer makes Warren a special asset to Christner's.
We started with a selection of wine and mixed drinks, all made/served to perfection. Warren recommended the shrimp sampler as a start, and we were not disappointed. 3 giant cold tiger shrimp per person, each with own sauce were delicious. We watched several tables receive onion rings appetizer that disappeared as quickly as they arrived. The table bread was excellent. We had 3 sides with dinner. Creamed corn, brussel sprouts, and potatos with cheese dish. All were outstanding.
We ordered 5 different steaks and everyone agreed it was the very best steak they had ever had - and that's a big deal considering we've ate at Charlie's for several years, and also Shula's. Each aged steak had a thin char, was cooked perfectly for each selection, and melted in one's mouth. Steak knives not required. If you want a twist on the steak selection, order the veal porterhouse - ooooh its so good.
I maxed out the value at 5 stars even though the prices are high. If one pays for a meal at these prices, one expects outstanding food/drinks/ambiance/service. Our expectations on all four were met and exceeded, thereby earning the 5 star value. I couldn't afford to eat there each week, but every time we visit Orlando in the future, Christner's is at the top of out night-out list.
Attire varied from suit jacket/pants to jeans with dress collar-shirt. Shorts allowed, but, you know.
Almost forgot to mention - we were very pleased to meet the Owner (Dave), through a common friend. A more hospitable owner is not possible. 5 stars.
If you try it- you will return.
We choose Christner's for special occasions and it is always a fabulous dinner experience. The food, the service and the atmosphere are unmatched in Central Florida.
Very weird waiter, little rude and unfriendly , Unable to establish a conversation with the table outside the menu and very unprofessional attitude, only mentioned he is from south america, but not up to the lever I am used for so many years. The steak was burned with a terrible carbon taste,however the waiter nowhere close to the table after the dinner was served. However the Lobster was awesome as usual ( No change for years). Not sure if would return or recommend it anymore after been a regular customer since 1998. Saturday April 7, 8:15 pm.
My wife and I took 2of our daughters there while our other daughter was in ICU at Florida Hospital.
It was our oldest daughters birthday. We totally enjoyed our time
This is one of the finest restaurants in Orlando. The food and service never disappoints!
Christners is a diamond in the rough in todays world. Family owned and operated and always willing to please. Consistent food to perfection, Service at its best and never disappointed. In all my travels to other restaurants of this type, I consider it the best of the best. You get what you pay for and Christners delivers.
We had the 6oz petite filet with mashed potatoes and creamed corn. Chocolate mousse for dessert and everything was excellent!! Great service from Bob 😃
An anniversary staple. Not much has changed in 20 plus years and that's perfect for us. We go early 4:30pm because it makes for a quiet environment. Congratulations Christener team.
Excellent. Best steak in Orlando!
Superb for steak and lobster. Attentive service and seating privacy when needed. Faultless proparation.
Awesome food, best steak in Orlando!
Annual birthday dinner. Great job as always ....
First time and will definitely be back!!!
Best steaks in central Florida! Great service and hospitality. Even side dishes are outstanding! Can’t go wrong having a meal at Christner’s.
Thank you to Christners for making our "just signed a home contract" celebration dinner wonderful.
Great food and service. Nice family owned steakhouse.
Service was amazing. Best meal in quite a while! Wine selection was great and we had an amazing bottle of wine, or 3.
Excllent appetizer selection. The crusted Ahi Tuna was the best we've had. Always an enjoyable and professional staff. During this visit, a regular was extremely loud in conversation and affected those of us eating in the bar area. We now know where and when not to sit when he's there!
Always a favorite for Tammy and I
From top to bottom Christner's is just plain the best! No question about it.
Overall experience was great, from the ambient to the service and generous portions. Definitely will visit again when in Orlando!
What a fabulous meal! From well crafted cocktails to our amazing steaks, we enjoyed every bite. I appreciated the option to split a salad and appetizer. Joshua was an attentive server who was spot on with suggestions.
The environment was very loud and on our visit the crowd was quite "active". Literally everyone who passed our table bumped into my wife's chair. This included staff and other guests. My wife's Chateau potatoes were very salty and her steak was under cooked. My steak was perfect. Dessert was very good and our server was entertaining.
Fair. For the high end experience. Salad was plain. Will not go back.
A dependably incredible steak served with decent sides. The quality of the steak is reflected in the price, but you knew that when you booked the reservation. This isn’t a place for dieters or people with loads of lifestyle-type dietary restrictions. The wine list is good. The creme brûlée is a delicious way to end the meal. Treat yourself!
It was a very intimate dining experience as the restaurant was quiet. Dinner was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
It was a really comfortable place to be with my wife on our 9th year wedding anniversary. I heard so much about this place I thought there should have been a little more for the price. 300 bucks for 2 steaks a lobster tail 2cocktails and a glass of wine. No music. I mean i would go back yet not before checking out simular resturant. Yet I may have awt my expectations too high. Atmosphere perfect. Server fantastic. Thanks for the experience.
Phenomenal meal, service, and atmosphere.
As always both the food and service were fantastic.
