    The AC Sky Bar is definitely a unique experience. We went for Sunday Brunch without knowing exactly what to expect. We certainly weren’t expecting a DJ to be blasting overly loud music the whole time. Had to basically shout to talk to people at the same table. The food was great though and we would definitely consider going back.

    I made a brunch reservation for 4 and the table we were seated at had hairs on it so I asked if it could be wiped down. The waiter wiped it but the hairs were still there so I asked for napkins so I could wipe it myself. I asked for 4 waters, which were delivered without ice. When I asked for ice, a single cup of ice was brought. My husband and I ordered food before the rest of the group but when it arrived it looked like a school lunch/microwave version of food. I ordered the avocado toast which was just one piece of bread with overripe avocado smeared on top with a bunch of basil (a literal bunch) and some cherry tomatoes cut in half on top. My husband ordered the chicken and waffles which looked like a toaster oven waffle with Tyson chicken tenders put on top. I've never been so disappointed in a brunch. Especially a venue with such a beautiful view and potential.

    Great vibe and view but poor food and service. Our server was great when he attended to us but he was working the entire restaurant due to it being short-staffed and half of our order came out wrong or did not come at all.

    Went here for the Sunday brunch for a birthday during edc. We had the best time it was a great crowd and dj. Alie kept the mimosas flowing and she brought the energy to start our last day at edc. So much fun probably the best brunch in Orlando.

    We made reservations ahead of time and everything flowed smoothly. We were seated right away and there was no long wait for a server to assist us. The food, drinks, and ambiance was to die for. Highly recommended for any special occasion or for just a vibe. 10/10.

    The venue was nice, and the food was okay. I think the wait staff would benefit from a team-service based approach. Our server had multiple large groups and received no support.

    The ambiance and location was great as we had an outside table for Sunday brunch. The food was good but not difficult to make ( avocado toast, ceasar salad etc…) the waiter was not on the top of his game and his uniform had stains. At times, it took him some time to bring us the basics (napkins, spoons for dessert !)

    The service was terrible. You self seat. We were sat without silverware, water, or napkins. I only received the eggs and potatoes, of my meal. I never received my avocado toast, or my Belgian waffle. My alcohol that was ordered came after my food. I mean it was just a terrible experience. I watched another couple walk out now I know why.

    Sunday Brunch -really more like a club night with the lights on. DJ playing music so loud we could barely have a conversation sitting outside. The food was decent with typical hotel pricing. Too many other options in Orlando with better food for less. The best part was the view.

    Great food. Sunday brunch is definitely leaning towards party bar and less peaceful lounge feels if that’s what you’re looking for. Music playing but not too loud. Great Sunday brunch spot!

    Been here twice exactly 2 weeks apart, Both servers gave the impression that we were a bother. The first server advised us we can’t send drinks back when my partner asked for a drink that he was not aware was spicy. Perfectly fine to advise us we can’t send it back. However, she proceeded to tell us people usually get the drink just to take Instagram photos and then send it back. So irrelevant. What if I was taking photos for Instagram? As a server, you should be happy your customers are coming in and enjoying the views so much they want to share it on IG Yesterday’s server was worse. He came out with sunglasses on so I couldn’t even see his face. He also spoke extremely low, my sisters and I had to ask him to repeat himself several times. He repeated himself but his tone stood the same so it was frustrating. Mind you.. we were sitting next to the speakers! My sister asked for no sauce (forgot what sauce) on her dish and I asked for my bacon to be soft…. My sister still received her plate with the sauce on top and my bacon was super crunchy. Totally forgot to mention, when I pulled out my card for the tab he immediately told me they don’t accept my bank (chime) there. However, my partner and I were there 8/14 and paid with chime (over $100 tab including tip) - he then proceeded to mention people usually go there to eat and then dispute the charges. He also needed a card to keep the tab on but my partner and I didn’t have to do that 2 weeks ago. I’m a local resident and been living here since 2004. I finally found this cool little spot and wanted to try it out. The views and food are great but the servers? Not so much. The vibe I get when I visit sky bar is that if you don’t look wealthy, you’ll be judged by your server and they’ll probably think you are going to leave a low tip or no tip at all. And to be honest.. I will definitely leave a small tip with the service I get here. I’ll give this place one more shot, hopefully I get much better service.

    For being the first sky bar in downtown Orlando, it sets the right vibe. However, I expected to be blown away by the food choices but the choices were at best similar to Kekes breakfast cafe, and the waiters were not accommodating about any special requests (I was shocked we couldn’t get an extra side of pesto for a plate that was $32!) The outdoor seating was great for Sunday Brunch with the girls, overall a decent experience but not worth the long wait times or fighting for reservations more than once. Go on a day when it’s not too busy for drinks and apps just to enjoy the skyline!

    The service was awful! We had to keep on looking for our server because he would disappear without bringing our order. I ordered a appetizer and never got it. I bought the endless mimosas and had to track him down to get a refill. It was very frustrating. I definitely won’t be back.

    We made a reservation a week before for 7. We were there on time but we were asked to wait for who knows what. A waiter came up later and ask how many there were in our party and if we prefer outside or inside. Both have been specified during reservation. Meaning there was no table pre-set for us. The waitress lacked communication skills. She started off informing us that they cannot split the bills, we have to figure it out ourselves. The coffee we ordered were served just like in a cheap diner- no saucer, and the stirrer and napkins were all dumped in the middle of the table. When the orders came out, my $20 poached eggs and salmon plate was so small and underwhelming. Those whose order included prosciutto didn’t have it. When they asked for it, waitress came back with regular bacon without neither saying anything nor apologizing for it. We had to point it out and she seemed annoyed that we were noticing the differentiation. My friend’s burger was dry and had 1 PC of wilted lettuce on it. We didn't bother asking for the manager, because we wanted to enjoy each other’s time than spend it complaining. We still tipped well for consideration. But as to the hype and the required dress code, it’s not worth it. Never again we all thought. Oh, and be aware that parking downstairs is $10 a car for less than 2 hours. We don't mind paying extra dollars, but just give us our money’s worth. Our suggestion:if your trying to claim to be an upscale place, please train your servers well and improve the quality of your food.

    Bartender was great. The food was good too. But whoever that waiter was who greeted me at the door was rude. She clearly did not want to be there (or at least that day). But all other staff members were great and should get their credit.
