I guess due to the pandemic things are changing even more than last year. We have attended the NYE buffet and celebration at Cafe Rosen and stayed at the shingle creek for the last 5 years and did not enjoy it this year. There was not a variety in food like previous years. No passing out of hats/whistles etc like previous years. Also last year they were mandating ppl to wear their masks going up to the buffet but there were more ppl without masks and kids running thru the dining room. The kids were also getting food from the buffet unsupervised. This year was not worth the $277 we paid for 4 adults plus we left a $48 tip to Stephany who gave us excellent service. Next year we will be changing tradition and finding somewhere else to celebrate.

This restaurant has been consistent with the quality of food. Many of the foods are served creatively. The Prime Rib is succulent and full of flavor.
What I really like about this restaurant is that the buffet constantly changes. It has its old favorites, but numerous dishes are changed.
I was a bit disappointed in the service. We were a table of 12, and many of the dirty dishes were not removed fromthe table, even though we had fresh plates of food.

very good food. Service was outstanding for x-mas dinner. The only thing I would improve on is signs for self-parking. We parked on the far side of the resort and had a little walk. Buffett had so much food I wanted to try everything but I couldn't lol

Always a great experience. We are from out of town and look forward to the Christmas buffet when we visit Orlando fie the holidays. A little pricey but this year the price included the tip.

We ate at Shingle Creek for Christmas day. It was buffet format and was the highest quality of food from starters to mains and sweet courses. Sparkling wine re-fills as often as required. Totally satisfied with service as well.

We booked in advance for Christmas Day at $80 per ticket. Turned up on tim eand checked in and were immediately shown to a table which would seat 6 (there were 4 of us). The table was not set but the server said to visit the buffet and it would be
ready by the time we got back. e returned to find other guests at our table being served drinks. We fetched a supervisor (?) and were shown to another table pretty quickly but it was slightly embarassing to have to stand in the aisle with plates of food and nowhere to go while we waited. The food was good, however, the variety of sides available for hot meals was limited and the international' cheeses were not particularly inspiring, which is a shame as this caught my eye on the advertising. It was basically the same selection you can get in supermarkets so it would have been nice to have seen something a bit more exciting when paying so much. In summary, this is our first year not eating at home due to family changes and I think next year we will self cater again. The surroundings are great but the overall experience is not a whole lot better than any other well stocked buffet.

Our 6th year attending this event and they have not tried to skimp on quality and variety. Would have liked one or two more options at the carving station but the prime rib was terrific. One in our party is vegetarian so there were plenty of choices for all. Much more efficient by paying upfront and thank you fro including coffee without additional charge.

You can never go wrong at the annual Christmas buffet at the Rosen. Their decor and food variety and quality is consistently perfect every year! I will say this is the first year we were not happy with the bread pudding. But everything else was a delectable delight!

It’s a great place to celebrate. You will ALWAYS feel happy (and stuffed) every time you come here. And I am a picky person. Well done again, Rosen!

Food and service, ambience, were very good as usual. But I was shocked that no gloves were given out for the buffet. I especially loved Rosen because they went up and above and took all these precautions when Covid started. Last year vs this year is such a big difference, and not in a good way!. Covid is still a thing, and this new variant is approaching, and everyone is touching the ladles at the buffet?? Why?? How much can it have cost to get a few boxes of those clear gloves, and handed them out? So disappointed. We’ve had been going to the Rosen holiday buffets for many years. But I can’t return if they are going to be careless like this. Mr. Rosen, is a very good man. I was told he reads every review. Not sure if that’s true, but God I hope so!
