Great food, atmosphere, and the price was espectacular for the quality in the food! Everything tasted fresh!
Terrible service and subpar food. Very expensive for the experience.
Great food and service at a very reasonable price. Excellent selection of food and beer.
REALLY wanted to love this place... but don't. Got charged for our FREE appetizer. LONG wait for drinks and even longer for food (1 hour)... salads arrived 2 minutes before the main course. Had to ask for cutlery...chicken was dry. Salmon was tasty... lobster mac & cheese had shell bits in it...
Ovation is outstanding! The food is amazing, everything is cooked to perfection, uses the finest ingredients, and has an excellent presentation. In addition, the service was fantastic. Every need was met, even before asking. We were all thoroughly impressed. We highly recommend Ovation, it truly gives the perfect dining experience. Thank you.
Holy smokes, what a find!!!! This place was amazing. The food, service and overall enjoyment should not be missed! I would return in a heartbeat. Too bad I don’t live in the Orlando area. We found Ovation on the last night of our vacation. It was a perfect way to end the trip. Ovation had the best BBQ I’ve had. Brisket was smoked perfectly and so juicy. Their ribs and sauces had something for everyone. Steaks and apps were top notch too. This place is wonderful!
Chicken dry. Portions small not extremely flavorful
Ribs came burned and then replaced with dry ribs
Steak had no flavor
The fettuccine is the beat thing on the menu
Arrived 5 til, but was told it would be a 15-20 minute wait even with reservations. That was the same estimate given to the lady that just arrived. Visibly upset by it we were rushed into a corner booth for 6 with a chair in the aisle by our original RSVP time (we had 7 on the RSVP).
The server was adequate at service, but did not suggestive or upsell anything. Considering we were first time visitors and from out of the area it left a lot to desire.
We had the wings and pretzel bread with beer cheese as appetizers. Both were excellent. The wings were well cooked and full of flavor. The buffalo sauce was also flavorful.
We all ordered steaks medium to medium well. The either plated the steaks wrong or didn't properly cook them. Mostly they were cooked slightly past what was ordered (medium came out medium well). The fries were great, with the right amount of crisp on the outside and still flavorful and full inside.
For the price I likely would not dine here again.
First and last visit. Checked in at 6:15 and they had one open table that was squeezed in at the door. We told them we would wait for another table to open. Ten minutes later a manager comes out and tries to seat us at the same table by the door and is rude when we explain we are willing to wait for another table.
Waitress was great but food was just average. Ribs were dry.
Food was amazing. Service was non existent (although there seemed to be a lot of servers stood around). Our table server was also the bar tender at a busy bar area...that may work on non busy times but definitely doesn’t work when it’s busy. He was very friendly and I’m sure woukd have been great if he wasn’t working two busy areas while others stood around. Complimentary bread was forgotten, manager was kind of a jerk to me when another waiter gave me sone to take home.
The food was great and the service was a little rushed. Also the music was too loud !! Definitely recommend !!!
Good all around. No complaints. Caramel cheesecake was awesome.
First time there. Staff very friendly.
Ovation serves great food and the staff are pleasant and attentive. Happy to highly recommend this restaurant.
Great place, great food! Try the brisket.
All the food was good except the ribs. They were a little burnt and dry. The service was very good and I would recommend the restaurant.
We got priority seating. Large table for four. Service was excellent Food hit and delicious. Go to Ovations in Davenport Florida!
As always the food was prepared well and delicious, had the chicken acclaim and my friend had a pasta dish. One point of contention, why do restaurants train their staff to ask about dessert when one has just started eating their dinner? If there is a reason, explain. Because I like to dine, not gulp, and dessert isn't on my mind until AFTER I have finished my meal. Everything else was fine, just wish the world would not rush friends who need to catch up. Especially three bites into our entrees! The smoked prime rib drew me to go tonight and regrettably was sold out by 7:15pm. I guess that will be for next time.
We were in Orlando with our 3 grown boys, their women, and our 3 year old grandson. Overall, we had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. However, we waited forever for our apps. Almost an hour. When the food came, it was very good. Our server was great, and the atmosphere was pleasant. The manager came over and checked on us, and introduced himself. I was kinda disappointed that although I made a note on our online reservation AND spoke to the hostess when we arrived, that our birthday boy and our 32nd anniversary was not acknowledged. Was kinda hoping to surprise my husband with something.
Went for toast an Fernandos choice was given high praise.
Great Food and great music. The place seemed small from the outside, but the food is amazing. Great selection as well. If we have learned about this place early into our vacation-we would have been here multiple times.
Food was incredible, prices were fair and reasonable. Service was great but the atmosphere was lacking. The menu did not match the environment. That said It is now one of my favorite stops when we are in town and we will definitely be back.
Bomb ! The best hands down! Would recommend it over and over again. I’ve been a manager for restaurants for well
Over 10 years. The best was to a customers heart is great food quality and they by far accomplished that! I’d even work here !
The food and service was great for the price. Great portions for the price
Love this restaurant. So proud of Joel and Fernando and all there success.
We went for Mother’s Day. This is our second visit and it did not disappoint. My husband and I ordered the Shrimp appetizer and chicken wings. Then he had the chicken acclaim and I had a burger on a Gluten free bun. It was cooked to perfection! We had a great time and the waitress Megan was fantastic! The whole staff was working diligently to keep all their guests happy. We are moving closer to Davenport and are looking forward to making this place a regular spot.
Amazing restaurant with great service. I arrived and table was already prepared! Definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.
First time to this place. Food and drinks are all 5 stars! We will be back again. Thank you for a great Mother's day dinner.
Good local pub. Had 6:30 reservations-was seated quickly-server was attentive and helpful. Will definitely return
Food and service are excellent. I enjoyed the pork shank osso bucco which was fork tender. I did have to send back the garlic mash potatoes because they were cold but the server replaced them quickly with a hot replacement.
the tables outside are in need of repairs also the tables and chairs were not wiped clean between guest
This place was great! We saw a billboard and thought, “why not”! We walked and were seated immediately. The gentleman who seated us told us they were a little short handed and thanked us for our patience in advance. We never noticed the delay in our service. Our meal took a little longer to come put and I imagine that’s because we were there at opening. I had the steak wedge salad with a steak that was perfectly medium rare. My husband had the acclaimed chicken and said it was delicious. We had the shrimp for an appetizer… delicious. We will go back. It’s a drive for us but the staff was magnificent! Oh, reasonable prices!
Loved everything about it. Food was delicious, prices were reasonable, and our waitress matched our group's energy level! Would definitely go back!
I usually never have any issues here. My husband and I come here a lot and love the food. Last night for some reason they could not get the cook on my NY strip right. Eventually I got tired of sending it back and just took it home to finish cooking it the way it was supposed to be
Good food & service but it's crowded seating, dark, noisy and in need of a deep cleaning & painting. Time for renovation
We love Ovation! Been going there for years. Food is always amazing. Staff are all very friendly, knowledgeable and make for a wonderful dining experience. Never a bad meal at Ovation!
Our server was excellent.
H in usually long wait for food, even though it was not busy.
The waitress kept apologizing and gave us a free round of drinks
We were seated outside on the nice patio. The food and service were excellent!
