Go Undercooked spaghetti (not al dente), sent it back, it came back still undercooked. The kitchen could not be even bothered to make a fresh plate, the second time the dish that they sent out had melted burrata cheese. Very disappointing dinner in terms of food. Ambience and service was good.

Excellent service on a busy Thanksgiving. Our server went the extra mile to make sure my spouse was able to get a meal to accommodate her celiacs needs. On such a busy night, the chef came out of the kitchen to discuss options and prepare a nice turkey dinner. So much appreciated!

Very rushed. Server was definitely just ‘taking orders.’ Next course served before we were done with the prior. No one collected dirty dishes. We had them stacked in the middle of the table . We love Denos and will be back, but we’re very disappointed with this experience.

We have a timeshare condo in winter park and were looking for somewhere to go for Thanksgiving. We chose Deno's. The atmosphere was very nice and quiet. We were able to talk to our table mates with no problem. We ordered the turkey dinner and it was very good. The service was excellent. We would definitely eat there again.

We love Deno's! Locals favorite! My two favorites is the Lobster Ravioli and the local Trout on a bed of pureed tomatoes. I could seriously eat this every week! And quite often I do!

Happy hour for several year has been great. Decided to have a relaxed family dinner. The food was great and large portions. The waiter was awful. He was very rushed, wanted us to make our order decisions at rapid fire, did not allow us time to enjoy appetizers before ordering next course then moments after soup and salad arrived delivered the main course. No time to finish salads, not even enough room on table for the unfinished course and main course. This is not a fast food resturant. We were spending plenty of money, not tying up a table for a few beers and snacks. We complained to hostess, they took $20 off the bill but what was hoped to be a nice evening was ruined. Someone should train the waiter properly or in the future we would tell the waiter o back off we are not here to help turn over your table.

The tuna poke and shrimp-cargo appetizers are my favorite things on the menu... that and the incredible wine list! Deno's is the nicest restaurant in Winter Park with an old-fashioned pub-type setting (dimmed lighting, historic newspaper clippings on the walls, sometimes can be loud for large groups).

John was a great waiter. We had the Filet- cooked perfectly and delicious and Ribeye-delivered med well instead of med rare as ordered, however it was tender and delicious👍Veggies were perfect and had a delicious unique seasoning. Skinny (homemade) margarita was fantastic. Passing through during Labor Day- no problem w reservation. Cozy booth, will recommend and return.

Anniversary dinner. Greeted nicely by hostess. Could barely understand our server as he was rushing around from table to table. He quickly took order, said an insincere 'happy anniversary' and ran off to next table. This was how it was through the evening. It was as if we were in Germany which doesn't have tipping and servers don't take a true interest in 'serving' diners; but merely function as deliverers.

We each started with French onion soup which was not very flavorful; broth was bland. Husband had medallions rustica which he said was well cooked. I had spaghetti alla trapanese with chicken. While the pasta was cooked correctly and well seasoned, with great taste of walnuts, tomatoes and red peppper; the chicken was stringy.

Very, very noisy.

Overall, not a great experience.

Overall, I thought is was good. Our steak was very good and cooked to perfection.
Our waiter was attentive but not overly so.
We did make reservations, but for this time of year (as in NOT ski season), I'm not sure it was necessary.

Deno's was exactly the Winter Park experience we were hoping for!

Amazing food, great servers-who even brought over water for our puppy- and a relaxing patio. Couldn't ask for better!

Everyone was very kind, and engaging.

I had the vegetable curry, and it was all I could do to not lick my plate. We also had one of the pizzas and the burrata caprese which were also really good.

Deno's has been a favorite of ours for years. However, their fine dining skills have slipped a little. It's not the "real food" gem of the past. Components of our meal were contrived and missed in the honesty category. The beef tips were like something from a prepared carton I would buy at Costco and just heat up. The cauliflower purée which accompanied the fresh fish of the day was cold beneath a warm halibut fillet as if the plate had been prepared too far ahead of the seared fish. We expected a better dining experience on a special Friday night during our mountain getaway.

What a wonderful evening! Great food, wonderful service. We sat outside and enjoyed the great weather and beautiful scenery of Winter Park. Our waiter was personable, informative and accommodating. It was my sons birthday and they presented him with a delicious piece of apple pie, candle and all! Make this a must-visit in Winter Park.
