everything was very good, but the service was not 5 stars. they took our plate w/ food still on it. had to ask for a lot of things. not a lot of attention, which is ok, but they do need to pay a little more and ask if everything is ok and if you need anything. service was the biggest part that was lacking. again..not awful but thought I should bring it to your attention.
this was NYE dinner.

We had a 245 reservation for thanksgiving and by 310 the omlet bar was closed as was the carved station. Disappointing!
We voiced our concern asking why they took a 245 reservation and the manager said his staff closed early and he ultimately comped our dinner.

Totally understaffed and mediocre food for a special brunch that cost $50. Was not even offered alcohol to toast Easter, and had to track down help to clear plates or even receive check.

Amazing meal and service. A++ for presentation and the filet mignon could be cut with a butter knife. We so enjoyed the evening and the conversations with the staff and management. Very personal experience. We were told the restaurant, normally, has been closed but they decided to do Valentine's day. With that they will be doing an Easter Brunch and a Saturday night before Mother's Day wine evening. We were told that regular evening dining would not be available until possibly the fall. So if you have a chance and can make one of the special events happen you will not be disappointed at all.

Exceeded expectations. Every person in our party ordered the lamb. It was some of the best I have ever had. The appetizers and dessert were exceptional. I give Nine18 my highest recommendations. Thank you.

Food and service have not been bad, but I expected an other gourmet standard. If you are used to european gourmet restaurants, you will be disappointed. According to advertising the wine list should have 500 bottles. Actually the about 40-50 wines fit on one page. Having 10 of each in cellar, "500 Wines" is not wrong ;-) Service is nice, but do not expect a great experience...

Sept is Magical Dining month and the we were excited to kick off our dining escapades at Nine18 (see earlier review). 90 Orlando area restaurants participated this year. To close out the event we chose to return to Nine18 to recapture the pleasure we experienced during our previous visit. We were NOT disappointed!! Same heartfelt welcome (the staff from the front step to the dining room remembered us), impeccable service and beautifully prepared courses awaited and we were so happy with our decision to return!! We had a later reservation and were entertained by the fireworks from nearby Epcot which we could see frim our table. A perfect ending!

Never knew this restaurant was open to the public. I always assumed it was for the golf club or villa residents. Food was very, very good, service impeccable. The view from to the golf course was wonderful. Bar area looked like a great place to meet for happy hour. Alas, found out that no happy hour is offered. We will definitely keep this restaurant in mind for future occasions.

We went for the 'magical dining' n I was attracted by the name NINE 18 not knowing that it is a restaurant next to a golf course! Anyway, I was
S a bit disappointed on my fish which was very chunky so it might be tricky to have it well cooked n yet not over-cooked! Otherwise, everything else was fine!

Lovely hidden gem of a restaurant. My husband and I didn't know it was there until it appeared on the annual magical dining list. Excellent food and service. Lovely view of the golf course. My only complaint would be when offering a taste of a wine before purchasing a glass or bottle, they were very stingy, there was maybe 2 teaspoons in my glass. For $18 a glass and up you can give a better sample. Other than that, we were quite pleased and expect to go back again.

We chose Nine18 as our first restaurant during Magical Dining month. We were not sure what to expect but we had reviewed their MD menu online and were excited to try the braised pork cheeks appetizer...honestly!! THAT's why we went! We are foodies who love to cook and love to try what we CAN'T cook!
The restaurant overlooks the 9th and 18th greens at the Villas at Grand Cypress golf course. It is a beautiful and relaxing overlook in a formal contemporary dining setting The staff was welcoming, professional and attentive. Our 3 vourses were beautifully presented, generous portions and delicious!! Each course offered a wine by the glass pairing and great prices. We were very happy with all aspects of our dinner and dining experience there.

The experience was a great one. We were instantly greeted and sat. The staff was very pleasant but seemed a bit unorganized at times. For example, we just placed our order and the waiter hurried off, then another waiter came and asked for our orders. When we first sat down a member of the staff took our drink order and then later on we had to repeat what we ordered to our actual waiter after we got our drinks. Very lovely night but seemed a bit unorganized.
