Elegant place. Delicious pastas and veal dishes. Great place for celebrations. Would just add some nice music in the background; there was no music the night we were there.
Wonderful service, excellent food, a perfect dining experience!
We love BICE and thrilled to be able to have a birthday dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.
The staff, food, and restaurant is amazing, the lack of social distancing and tables on top of each other is not. I will not be going back anytime soon.
Second time we have eaten here in last two months. It is superb
Intend to go again when I'm there in March
Great place ans exquisite food and wonderful venue
The absolute best Italian food in Orlando. I'm a local and I have eaten many Italian places and none compare the Bice. The food was excellent and the service was some of the best I have ever experienced. Your
We arrived one hour prior to close. Having worked in the industry ourselves, we were aware of closing time and planned to eat quickly enough and leave before the end of the night. Our server was mostly inattentive, although the gentleman serving the table next to us on the patio seemed like an excellent server. It may have been a bad night for ours. He didn’t ask us if we wanted anything to drink, something that I don’t believe has ever happened to me before. The food was good, but not great. He rarely checked on us. The manager did once but the server did not. Again, perhaps simply because it was the end of the night. I wouldn’t go to a restaurant a half an hour before close but an hour seemed like enough time. I would consider returning but certainly not any time close to close.
Superb. Beautiful setting and spectacular, authentic Italian food. Zero complaints
Our server was Paul. Everything started off at a good start. Then a larger party came in (which is fine), but i over heard them buying a $600 dollar champagne bottle and once that happened Paul never came back to check up on us. We received our food from someone other than Paul and he never came to see how my fiancé and I were doing. We finished our food and he STILL didn’t come to check on us. He then gave us a complimentary cupcake with ice cream since it was our 5 year anniversary. That was nice of him Atleast. That was the only positive outcome of the dinner. Other than that the food was amazing.
Server was great, very attentive. Food was delicious!
Wonderful you are back. You were closed so long due to China flu, we worried you wouldn't be opening again. Cheers to the new year! Great food, great ambiance. See you next month.
We love this restaurant not only because the food is fantastic but is a white linen service!!
We feel so pampered!! And the view eating under the starts is so romantic!!
We will keep coming back!!
Loved this restaurant! Great romantic ambience, delicious food and perfect service. Their pappardelle, lasagna and homemade gnocchi will have us returning here next year
Great homemade pasta. Very friendly service especially the manager. Ate there 3 times during our vacation.
The food took longer to be served ! They were not limiting the tables at the restaurant
Great food and service a very pleasant experience overall will definitely return the homemade pasta is a must!
This was not fine dining. Maybe fine dining for Universal. I found the dinner at Big Fire to be far superior to this. The service at Big Fire - excellent. The atmosphere at Big Fire - outside by the fire pit - charming. The quality of food at Big Fire - excellent. At Bice, not so much. The waiter was a bit condescending. He brought the check to the table while we were still eating our entrees. The chairs in the bar had peeling paint. We were asked to sit in the bar while our table was prepared, but never offered a drink. My son had the bolognese, and he thought it was just okay. I had the veal piccata, which was decent but not very tender. I did enjoy the mashed potatoes. But to dim the lights, add table cloths, and inflate the prices does not make a restaurant fine dining.
What a great experience! The restaurant and the service exceeded our expectations. It was my dad’s 80th and we decided to surprise him at Bice!!! Very elegant place ... waiters are sharp and well trained and the food is high quality. My dad had the Branzino (Mediterranean sea bass) and loved it! They brought out a surprise birthday cake and ice cream and all we did was note it on open table. It was busy but our waiter made us feel that we were the most important people in the restaurant. Thank you Bice!!!!
Wonderful dinner alfresco!Loved the Ossobucco and the Gnocchi.The service was terrific too!
We took our whole family here for our last dinner of our staycation. When we sat down, our waiter spilled water on the table in front of my daughters setting and mine. Purely accidental. He apologized but did not provide another napkin. As we ordered a second round of drinks, he spilled 1/3 of mine in my risotto entree and over my phone and mask as well as the table. He apologized and brought another napkin and walked away. He did not offer to bring a new drink or entree. When I received the bill, no discount was given. When we left, I informed the general manager of the issue and left it that if he wanted to make it right I had charged my room and he could follow up. When I got to my room I received an email that he cancelled my Open table reservation. So petty and ridiculous. In almost 70 reservations through open table I have not missed one. I did call the front desk of the Portofino Hotel and he quickly gave me a $50 credit and a late checkout. The steaks were good, the risotto was extremely creamy, the salads were solid. The drinks were light on the vodka. For over $60 a person, I expect more. Go to the chocolate factory for a casual but excellent meal. Less expensive too.
Lasagna and the filet were very good. The ravioli & veal milanese were average. Service was mediocre, but beautiful restaurant.
We dined at Bice 2 nights in a row.Spectacular from beginning to end. Victor did a great job suggesting plates and wine pairing.The manager stopped by every meal,The ambiance is stunning!!
Excellent Christmas dinner!
We were there at Christmas I had the Lamb Chops ordered medium rare came out raw sent it back came out within 5 minutes which tells me they nuked it in the microwave it was chewy I had a couple of bites and left the rest, at the very best they are using Choice Meat nothing above. In any decent restaurant the Maitre`D would have come to the table. When there is a problem but not here??? Their website says they have a dress code, that`s not being inforced jeans with holes there seems to be the norm , we were dressed up for Christmas and we felt out of place. We live in south Florida and we were going to try Bice in Naples but Thats not going to happen now.
PS. I am a retired Executive Chef.
We arrive at the front desk. We have to wait 10 minutes to have someone taking care of us after asking the barman.
We wait 20min to have a bottle of wine and 1 hour for each plate. Appetizer was just a board of cheese and charcuterie ($22 for very few items) and after 1 hour for our plate. The manager came to apologize but he did nothing for us. We were very disappointed it was for Christmas Eve. Normally we dine at Della mamma but it was closed, we will never be back. We paid $230 for a very poor dinner.
Beautiful restaurant and the service was great. Cocktails were delicious. Went for my birthday and it was a delight.
Food was amazing. Service was amazing.
We went to Bice for my Birthday dinner. The food was great, the service was great, and the atmosphere was great. We had a very fun time.
Very obvious they are trying very hard and given the circumstances they deserve every bit of positive recognition for wonderful service, friendly and accommodating atmosphere and delicious Food.
Good food and nice overall will be back
Service was excellent. The seafood risotto will be something I come back for.
The waiter ignored us. Literally walked d past us with his nose in the air. Waited 15 minutes for a menu. Waited 30 minutes for water.
The Host reluctantly waited on us.
TOO EXPENSIVE TO BE SO IGNORED !! 200.00 dinner for 2 and was treated like trash
This was our second time at Bice. Constantly excellent food.
I had the red snapper and my husband had the salmon.
Delicious and would get again.
Their spinach gnocchi is fabulous.
Don’t miss out on this incredible food!
They were very accommodating to special requests. The live piano music on Saturday nights is a nice touch
Great food with great view
We enjoyed our meal. Only one problem. I cannot have any amount of alcohol in my food. The waiter kept insisting that it gets cooked off. According to the USDA... It DOES NOT. When I asked about the ingredients in a certain dish he said that it had Brandyin it but " That isn't alcohol... is it ? "
What I finally chose was good but you really need to specify if there is alcohol in a dish.
It is important to some of us as Gluten or Nuts are to others.
A very good, high end, Italian dinner. Took my friend here for her birthday, and we were delighted by the food. Can be pricey, but I have found it worth the price in my two trips.
Sadly, this time, despite not being overly busy, it was surprisingly loud, and the service was a bit slow.
Food was not hot! Steak had to much grissel. Ambiance was wonderful and our server was very nice but a little pricey for the food quality !!
