If I could give them 10 stars, I would. One of the best places in Orlando, even Florida.
The food was great, but the location was awful. The restaurant should warn people that coming there means paying $47.92 to park, since the hotel charges the overnight rate if you park there for more than half an hour. So, after the overpriced food, you feel robbed by the hotel for parking. We were there when the restaurant opened, and we saw the host turn a couple away because they did not have a reservation. The restaurant only seated 6 tables during the 90 minutes we were there. There is no need for such pretentious attitudes.
Dear guest, We loved to hear that you enjoyed our food. Just some facts about your comment: 1)The parking is always free if you dine at our location (as specified on OT reservation page). 2)The guests were turned away because our dress code doesn't allow certain attire. Best Regards, Emidio Ciccocelli GM Bice Ristorante Orlando
Loved everything about it!!
Absolutely loved this restaurant. My girlfriend and I went for our anniversary and they made it special for us. Much appreciation for the restaurant.
Great night! Veal was delicious and well worth it.
Wonderful meal, relaxing and tasty after a long day at the parks. Very attentive service. Food was outstanding. Great wines available by the glass. Extensive list by the bottle.
Excellent food, impeccable service. David was amazing!
We had a wonderful time with my boys
We’ll definitely come back
Wonderful view on terrace
Food and service were excellent
Kids screaming/ not enjoyable. At 830pm there should be no kids under the age of 12 and Bice should engorce that. I know you want money but you are turning a fine dining experience for 175.0 for 2 people into McDonalds. Thats it/ no more.
Dear guest, Here at Bice we welcome guests of all ages including families with small children , and definitely will not discriminate against them. We are an inclusive environment and will remain that way! Emidio Ciccocelli General Manager Bice Ristorante
We came here for our son’s birthday. Bice never disappoints. Love this restaurant. Unfortunately, the hotel property overall hasn’t recovered from the pandemic and we will not stay on property here ever again.
Excellent staff and food
very nice building and atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff. Excellent food and drinks
Our waiter was excellent. From his knowledge of the wine to his suggestions for the dishes. Our night was so wonderful we are going back tonight!
Outstanding service and food!
Fantastic and strongly recommend. Our go to anytime we’re visiting Orlando. Jay - the waiter - is great.
Paul was our waiter and he was just lovely. Every dish we ordered was absolutely delicious!
We started with the La Caprese Classica - melt in your mouth burrata. For dinner, I had the Cappellaccio and was a member of the clean plate club!! Soooo good. My husband had the Carre' di Agnello (rack of lamb) and again, ate every last bit. I discouraged him from gnawing on the bones - LOL. And finally, my 11 year old daughter Tagliata di Manzo - the steak was unbelievable as were the roasted potatoes. This was our "last night" meal of the vacation and boy did we end on a high!
Our waiter Paul was amazing and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine selections. We will definitely return on our next trip!
Lasagna was the worst I ever had. Salmon and other dishes were good.
Such an amazing place. I really enjoyed the view and the food. One of the best places I have been to!
Staff was incredible. Paul was our attendant and he couldn't be any more accommodating, knows the menu knows what to request knows your style and taste buds awesome experience. I am in the food industry and event department for the last 30 years and the dining experience at Nice in Orlando incredible. Thank you Paul our personal attendant and many others for your expertise in a dining experience
Great homemade pasta, excellent wine list, good and knowledgeable servers.
Honestly the food was spectacular, and the portions were good for the price. Great calamari and pasta dishes. Server was great with refills as well.
Excellent food, drinks, location (we ate once inside, which was nice, and outside overlooking the water / boats, which was great as well. Service was impeccable as well--ask for David, but I'm sure the other servers are great too. Great cappuccino and dessert too! Will definitely return next time we visit Portofino!
The food and the service was excellent!!!
We went for our 2 yr. anniversary and our experience was just as expected. Service was great, atmosphere (we sat outside), food quality and price. I didn't like their mashed potatoes but that is a personal preference it has nothing to do with an error in the kitchen or my order. We will definitely come back!
Great atmosphere great food
Bice has the most incredible pecan crusted salmon I have ever had the pleasure of eating and enjoying.
Asked for them to makes my wife’s birthday special - - on Open Table. Called twice and spoke with a manager going over what I expected. Both ASSURED me of what they would do. She got zero TBC
Amazing pasta and the meat sauce is amazing 10 out of 10
I highly recommend Bice (Beachā). atmosphere, the food, the service is all magnificent.
enjoyed dinner very much - outside table with view was special......
We enjoyed the lasagna and 4 cheese tortellini! Delicious!
We came in for our first time to celebrate a birthday and we had the most amazing time! From the service to the drinks to the food! Everything was perfect! Next time we have to sit outside on the patio to get the views but overall really nice experience! Definitely recommend!
Service and views were spectacular. I ordered the veal piccata, and my husband got the bone in ribeye. Both were absolutely delectable.
Considering we were celebrating my daughter’s birthday I had to right a review. Place is a disaster! Probably THE worst experience ever encountered dining out. After sitting for an hour without any food I asked the so called manager what’s happening? There was literally 4 tables all of which were attended to. The waiter we had we were told was overwhelmed and were given the bar tender to serve us. Apps finally came and tasted like it came from a cafeteria. I was so disgusted I didn’t even bother to order an entree and just ordered desert to sing happy birthday. They knew we were there for a celebration and a resort hotel with no clue how to cater to guests definitely needs more training.
Excellent wait staff, high quality food and a nice atmosphere....Enjoyable evening.
Everything was outstanding. Thank you for making our anniversary so special.
We were there for our 12-year wedding anniversary. The food was good! The filet was amazing. Excellent service. We were so happy we chose this place.
