    This has always been one of my favorite restaurants. This was my first time coming for brunch though. The food was great as were the drinks. Our server, Damon, was fantastic! We let him handle most of the ordering. Everyone loved all of the dishes and he was on top of our drinks!

    Food was amazing second visit. Reservation made. Arrived hostess ( small dark haired young lady) did not look up from her counter. Continued putting crayons packs aside. Did not acknowledge us or look up for around 5 mins ( no other customers around). Did not make eye contact and rudely said follow another member of staff. I advised we had pre booked seating outside. Again no acknowledgement just spoke to her colleague and told us to follow her. Extremely rude and unwelcoming. The rest of the staff attentive and welcoming. Suggestion don’t have rude, unwelcoming staff front of house it definitely will put customers of returning.

    Fantastic and they deserve all the praise they get. Go with foodies who share with each other so you can taste everything! I'm a frugal guy, and was hesitant with the a la Carte structure but once we started getting food and tasting things and having the best time. They knock it OUT of the park with every entree it's all so complex and delicious and impressive and the portions are just fine we got full as a group of four, sat immediately on a Saturday night. And only spent a bit over a hundred for four people and even took food home!

    Food started flying out of the kitchen faster than Jimmy John’s. Always a fun experience. Food was great. It was a little loud but more lively than annoying. Also had a ballerina dancing around the restaurant, a guy painting and a woman making jewelry.

    We found TuTu by accident. The enormous expense and limited menu on Disney property, led us off property. The first time we went as a party of 8, the bill was less than our lunch on property. The food is off the charts amazing. There is nothing I would not order again. Staff is happy and welcoming. Wicked fun drinks. Great art.

    I really don’t want people to know how amazing this restaurant is because then it will get busier than it already is! The 2 times we went were fabulous! Elizabeth and Logan took great care of us. Both times, lunch and brunch, we had food that was so delicious! Omar the manager stopped by and made us feel so welcome during brunch! You have try the Butternut dip, steak skewers, Brussel sprouts, all the waffles, and so much more!! We will be back the next time we are in Orlando!

    Great artistic Cafe. Lots of art for sale and 2 local artists there that evening. Was crowded and loud but that's part of the kitsch. table was in the middle of cafe. Maybe less loud in other parts of cafe. Could still hear conversation at table. Hostess was vey kind. Server/Service was great. Knowledgeable server answered all ?s and asked about allergies first thing. Small plates are great because they have lots of interesting and tasty things on the menu. Not a place for people with limited palate so many wonderful tastes to explore. Reservations highly recommended. Will be back when I'm in the area.

    We took our 23 year old grandchild and she was amazed- said it was their favorite restaurant! Our reservation was actually honored about 10 minutes early. Our cocktails were delicious! The tapas we chose were so good - each one better than the one before. We had alligator bites, jerk wings, teriyaki spare ribs, black bean hummus, street corn, roasted Brussels sprouts, bread pudding and eclairs. The art displays and the working artists were so interesting. Service was flawless! Highly recommend.

    We had dinner for the first time here and really enjoyed it. The restaurant is filled with local art for sale and they also had artists and crafters set up at a couple booths selling their art. It had fun music and the food was good. Instead of one server they had several servers making rounds to take orders. The food came out quick and so did the drinks. We definitely will be back. Its a very cute quirky place.

    Incredible restaurant and food- Creative and some of the best flavors I’ve ever had in my life! I’ve literally had everything on the menu. My favorites right now are chicken tikka, Cajun chicken eggrolls, Cuban sliders and brick oven roasted sweet potatoes(this combination of flavors with the sweet potatoes is absolutely delicious- the pecans,honey and goat cheese knock it out of the park) It matches the whole vibe of the place. 10 thumbs up to the creative chefs and the dishes. Love the artists throughout, the special artist they have come in and share their gift - also available to buy. Food came out quick as well! Server was incredibly kind attentive. Love it all the time and it’s a must when we visit Orlando.

    Still has an innovative menu, but not as tasty as in the past. Tables seemed more tightly packed and we constantly had servers brush over our table, which was very small, as they passed. Music was often at a high volume making conversations more difficult in a packed room. Always made a point of going there while in Orlando, but likely to explore other places instead.
