Lukewarm soup, terrible service, and mediocre food.
All at a high price.
There is a lot of competition in the area, and this place is not good enough to compete.
We booked a time ,table wasn't ready when we got the table no one came for around ten minutes.
Soup was lukewarm, no salt or pepper on any table, parmesan not offered unless you manage to get the attention of the waiter.
The guy on reception ended up getting our requirements as the waiter was obviously distracted from actually working

I was disappointed with the service. Everyone seemed very flustered even though the dining room was empty. It was as though we were a nuisance to the servers. The host was nice and ended up serving us most of the time.

We had a very nice meal at Forte. This is the Italian restaurant in the Grand at the Reunion Resort. The room is very comfortable and the noise level is moderate which allows for easy conversation. There is a nice selection of appetizers. The antipasto plate is good and can be shared. The pastas are good although the pesto sauce was somewhat oily. One dish to consider is the chicken Marsala. This is very well done. The wine list is adequate and the service is very good.

My husband and I had dinner here last Friday. The food and the service was amazing. Our server was Johnathan, and he made us feel like we were his only customers. The pasta and sauce are made from scratch, and are made to perfection! We live in Winter Garden, and will be back for sure. We are also planning take our family that will be visiting in April for dinner here.

My husband and I decided at the last minute to go out for an early dinner on New Years Eve. The younger members of the family were enjoying Disney World, and we declined. Able to get a dinner reservation for 5:30 and the meal, service, ambiance was great. Would recommend.

I was told about Forte from the Kind Gal at the From Desk, It lived up to everything she said it would be Fantastic! Great and Friendly Waiter, Italian Guy! Funny! He let me modify me meal that was Not on the menu, and it was exactly what I was looking for! Alfredo Fettachinni Chicken. He also offered my Son and I a complimentary glass of wine, it was Wonderful!
Thank You!

We were so lucky to have an amazing server, Noor! He went above & beyond to make our dining experience special. We visited from NY and he remembered us from our last trip over a year ago. The food was delicious. The Calamari was outstanding! We will be back for sure before our trip ends here in Florida.

We have been guest at Reunion for several years and always ate out of the area.
This year we were tired decided to eat in the complex.
All the staff were pleasant and helpful.
We had the best calamari we have ever had.
Next year we will eat more “in house”

When our food came, it was incorrect. The waitress didn’t come back, so two of the three of us were done before she came back. No need to send food back at that point. She didn’t even ask if there was a problem......wouldn’t you ask if there is a whole dish not touched?? Took forever to get our check and then to get out. Not a good experience at all. Very disappointing. Never again.

Booked on line for a 2045 table for 5 on 8/5/17. I am sorry to say that my food was not to my expectation and the server not attentive to our table. I felt disappointed. I said nothing to the waitress at the time due to not wanting to spoil the family event which was our last night final meal treat at Reunion Resort. ☹️

Great food and service. The waiter knew the menu well and gave great recommendations. The restaurant was very nice, seating for us as a couple was away from the busier family area (which wasn't too bad anyway). We were not rushed through our meal and relaxed while we enjoyed our meal and dessert.
