We have just moved to Lake Eola Historic District and decided to try Dexters at Thornton Park for a Father's Day dining experience. Our reservations were at 8:45 and it was perfect timing. The staff was very welcoming and our waiter, Sam, was the best. He was friendly, great for recommendations, and great with his quick checks while we were dining. My meal was the Bayou Rib Eye and it was perfection. The roasted potatoes and arugula mix was a tasty sensation. My husband was happy to see his favorite-seared Ahi on the menu. He said it was delicious but must admit that the wasabi rice was a shock. He did have to leave that on the plate but otherwise, he said Dexters would be hard to beat for the Ahi tenderness and flavor. We are excited to know East Washington Street is filled with fun restaurants and we'll be returning to Dexters for different occasions often.
The Bite30 menu exceeded our expectations. The portions were very generous, and the flavors were great. The calamari appetizer was a standout, and I also enjoyed the lamb sliders. Chicken and salmon entrees were perfectly cooked. Cheesecake was excellent. Service was friendly.
I was disappointed and will not return. Had the Mahi sandwich - it was small and expensive.
Fun place. The food was good we ordered bunch of apps. All were good! The waitress was super fun and was very attentive. We love this location
Fish tacos were amazing !
Waited a long time for service, even beverages but all meals and drinks were very good. The bartender was bringing food to tables and running the bar! Wouldn’t be surprised if he was in back cooking!
Great service and very good food ..... it’s time to clean up the place ..... paint, refresh !
Brunch was AMAZING! I highly recommend Saturday over Sunday for crowd levels and would definitely make a reservation!
You definitely get your bang for your buck on the bottomless mimosas; mostly champagne with a drop of fruit! Plus there are a bunch of different fruit juice choices.
The food was delicious, the portions large, and the price in line for what you get.
We will definitely be back!
Dexter's is always good and never disappoints. Good food and wine. A great place to meet up with friends.
Pre concert bite to eat. Food was ok. Use to be better. Miss the spinach artichoke dip.
WOW! What a find! First time in Orlando in nearly 20 years. Going to a concert and staying downtown. Looked for a restaurant nearby. Dexters came up. Menu looked good. Decided to try. COOL neighborhood. Street parking. Historic esidential neighborhood. Wait staff super fast and right on top of things. Ordered the truffle steak flatbread, tuna tataki and split a burger. Everything was GREAT. Would definitely recommend.
Not that busy but service was very slow. From the kitchen, not th waitress. She was ok. Ordered salad with no onions, got onions. Sauce on the run was clearly from a bottle and sickly sweet.
Food and cocktails were delicious! The service was on point —allowing us to enjoy each other’s company while never wanting for a thing! Best brunch ever!
Myself and 9 friends visited for dinner on St. Patrick's Day. The service was phenomenal. Sarah, our server, was helpful, spunky, and quick. It started off as 6, but as more joined, she gladly pulled up more chairs to accommodate. And the food was out super quick, especially for a holiday. And boy, was it delicious! Absolutely all the kudos to Sarah and the kitchen team for making our meal experience a pleasant one.
Great service!!! Relaxed and a nice break from the dining at the parks!
Server was excellent! Will return
Was a dinner with extended family. Side of grilled chicken was a little dry, but sever made it right and removed it from bill. She did a great job with party of 8.
This is one of my favorite local spots to go when I go to the Theatre and want to get-away from the downtown scene. Awesome food and great service!
Great food! Everything from drinks to dinners! Service a little slow but all in all a great place!
Exactly what we wanted.
Very nice valentines- great special menu and service
Made reservations 3 weeks in advanced for dinner at 5:30. After being seated 10 min later we were notified they were out of most of their menu selections. Very upsetting we decided to leave ....
Server was very good except it took 20 minutes to pay the bill.
Quite possibly had the best French dip I’ve ever had. The jalapeño jelly was amazing for the duck sandwich and for the first time ever, the truffle fries were not overdosed in truffle. I highly recommend for any sort of pre-night out meal.
Fun time and great restaurant. Server was good, but good took much longer than we were told and we were on a tight timeline to get to a show.
Timely service good food. What more could you ask
We made reservations for New Year’s Eve with parents and fiancé. Sever was pleasant and made drink recommendations. Ordered appetizers and our meal selections. I specifically said not to rush the meal as we wanted to enjoy the appetizers, salads and main course. Shortly after the appetizers arrived, the main course meal was delivered and last the salads. The manager apologized and said it was a kitchen mistake and comped the appetizers. It wasn’t the slow enjoyable meal we planned, but the food was good and the manager took responsibility.
Great service from John, love the dog friendly patio!
Exceptional service - friendly, engaging and warm. Food presentation was spot on with the flavors to match.
We were heading to a show that night and found out they offer a discount by showing our ticket. Service was excellent. Kara was friendly, prompt and very knowledgeable about the menu selections. Thanks for a good evening.
Very disappointing. Service very bad. After ordering drinks it took over ten minutes to get them. Server disappeared and had to track him down so we could order dinner. My friends dinner came after a rather long wait. My entree did not arrive until 15 minutes later after my friends had already consumed their dinners. I refused my dinner since it came so late and left not enough time to go to our next location for a concert. Waiter was very indignant and said it was not his fault. He made some snarky remark and huffed off. Manager came over a bit later
and I explained. She took mine off the bill. However, after we explained to her we needed to leave we had to wait another ten minutes to get our bill. By the way my friends said their meal was barely warm when it arrived.
Used to go here many times but will not return.
Service & ambiance good. Food was so-so. Enjoyed sitting outside. I ordered the skillet salad. Expected a skillet, or at least grilled food. Was not what I expected. My friend ordered the salmon salad and was disappointed. Server and service were fine. But food could have been better.
People and service were great but the food aimply was uninspired and nothing special
Great food and the service. The chef is innovative and has many great meals I have yet to try. We will be back to try them all!
Amazing happy hour drink specials. Chicken eggs rolls are the best !
I had not gone there for some time for no reason except been to busy,i came across their Manic Monday special 50% of their menu gave me a chance to try all their new dishes and they are awesome!! The staff is great too!!! Now Dexter will be my go to for just about any occasion!!
Tuna poke is amazing
Food was good and service was also good. Happy hour prices are nothing special.
We had 19 join us for breakfast and our server was FANTASTIC! We were hesitant to choose this location again (we go yearly with this large group) as last time our service was poor. This time everyone raved about how great their food was (all came out hot vs last time it was cold) and our server was very prompt and accommodating. We will definitely pick this place again in the future!
