This used to be my “go to” favorite restaurant. Not sure what has happened with the quality of food. My last two visits to Back Room the food quality was poor. Cream of Spinach is Now spinach floating in warm milk. The filet used to be perfect as you could cut it with a fork. Not so anymore; over done and chewy. The risotto, absolutely no flavor. When served my entre, the food was barely warm. We asked the server if the recipe had changed. Her response was, “I think so.” At this point I wanted to ask for the manager, but did not due to the special occasion. I did share my dissatisfaction with the server. She did nothing. I felt ignored. Definitely not worth $40 ++ for filet. We took our very best friends to celebrate birthdays. Set reservations up and added notes. Embarrassed as table not set for 4 but 2 and I had to tell our server why we were there. Nothing like feeling unvalued. Not sure if I will return. Very disappointing.

We arrived at the restaurant quite a bit before our 5:30 PM reservations; but, despite being early, we were seated immediately.

We tossed around some ideas for cocktails and wine, which delayed our ordering. But Brittany was incredibly patient and attentive and gave us time to formulate a plan. We settled on a Back Room Old Fashioned (with Luxardo cherries!) and a Fig & Berry Mule (a staff recommendation.) Our drinks tasted great!

For an appetizer, we went with the crab cakes. They were huge, tasty, crispy, and the remoulade sauce was delicious. They are very close to what I am used to getting in Maryland - yes, that good!

For our main course, we both opted for the Boneless Ribeye, medium rare. The steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly, not a single complaint from either of us. We got two sides with each steak! My wife had the Asparagus and Risotto; and, I had the Creamed Spinach and Broccolini. The sides were done perfectly, just straight-up terrific food.

To go with our steaks, we had two glasses of wine. I ordered her the Burnside Meritage; and, I went with the Boneshaker Zinfandel from Lodi, CA. Her wine offered up some nice fruit up front, while mine was big, bold, spicey, and terrific with the well-marbled meat.

We split the Creme Brulee, which was the BEST presentation of the dish that we have had in more than 20 years. The caramelized sugar was crispy, and the custard was warmed through. It was an absolute delight to finish our meal with this dish.

The food was wonderfully cooked and had a nice presentation. Everything tasted uniquely special from start to finish. This is fine dining. It is a bonus that The Back Room is a local neighborhood restaurant. From the moment you enter the door you are treated as a special guest by the hostess, multiple servers, and are visited by the owner. This restaurant is excellent in every way.

Was excited. Our first time there. Everything was great until it took 1.5 hours to get our steaks. The place had almost emptied out. Waitress kept saying it was the next out....wrong. When we finally got it all we got was “sorry for the delay” from the owner. Really? Even one of the other wait staff (not ours) came over and chuckled saying “you finally got your food?” Steaks were warm but not hot. What started out great ended with a dud.

It started with excellent customer service... we were greeted with a friendly welcome. We had reservations and were seated right on time. The waitress was awesome! Friendly, funny, and well versed on the menu items. I had steak and my husband had lamb chops. Both were cooked to perfection. The sides were delicious, too. I would recommend the Backroom to everyone. Casual attire, but dressy is ok, too. A gem we were happy to find. We’ll go back soon.

I had read reviews that it was the best Steak House in Central Florida and the reviews were right. The appetizers all the way to dessert, everything was wonderful.

The seating and décor was awesome and the staff was extremely helpful and very friendly.

Cant wait to go back!!!

One of my finest dining experiences ever. The service, atmosphere, Furnishings, steaks and food was fantastic. Lighting was a little bright though. I feel strongly that it should be turned down a couple notches. I cannot wait to return again and bring more family and friends.

The food was excellent! We both had the Ribeye steak and it was very flavorful. Service started slow, but after that was very good. After checking out the rather pricey menu online ($36.00 Ribeye), we were expecting a somewhat hi-end dining experience for our anniversary. The ambiance was lacking for this occasion. It felt more like we were eating in a Chilis' restaurant.

The waitress was extremely loud. Felt like she was yelling at us while we were ordering. My father comment well now everyone in the restaurant knows what we ordered. The food looked and tasted awesome. The manager was nice and gave my parents a complimentary dessert since it was their 50 th wedding anniversary. Would recommend this place to friends for a special occassion. Just be prepared for a loud waitress.

Upscale food in a non-pretentious atmosphere. The veal chop was marvelous as well as the pork chop. Next time, we must try one of their steaks. Garlic mashed was delicious and we were split on the non-traditional creamed spinach (it was wilted spinach in a thin cream sauce rather than thicker spinach with cheese in it). The desserts were wonderful - creme brulee and chocolate bourbon pecan pie with vanilla ice cream. The one light hanging over our booth was a little bright. The service was great and our server was very personable. Prices were reasonable for the quality of food. We will be going back!

The restaurant was very plain. There was no nice artwork no plants the bathroom was stark. There was no atmosphere. No visual impact. The manager was dressed in all black and he looked sad to be there. Our table was waited on by really nice people the servers were fantastic informative friendly and we got our food in a timely manner. The servers weren't dressed like an upper class restaurant that I was told this place was. My recommendation is there attire needs to be classier . Food was ok but not wonderful and nothing that would make me want to hurry back to it. I spent $400 plus at that restaurant next time I will drive further to get my moneys worth . I do believe though with a little bit of effort they could give that place A personality. If I hear it's been styled I will go back. Even though the food was mediocre atmosphere and visual impact are very important and I'd go back if it were redecorated.

Waitress was excellent .Steaks were of a high quality. Oysters Rockefeller were the worst I ever had anywhere , fried green tomatoes were overpriced for an appetizer three slices of tomatoes and goat cheese for $11. All sides were of small quantity even if you ordered an extra side. We were charged $4.50 as all sides are for three asparagus.

Very disappointed. Had confirmed reservations via email thru Open Table. My wife even confirmed in the afternoon, since it was my birthday. When we got there, there was NO record of our reservation. We were seated at a table with silverware for on!y one. Waiter didn't notice and I had to ask for silverware after my salad was delivered to the table. Food took an extremely long time to arrive after ordered. My steak was not served as I ordered (cooked too long) but didn't want to send it back because I was afraid I'd have to wait another 45 minutes. Since the expansion (multiple visits) service has gone down.

Magnificent. Nice place to go n try out steak. Quality steaks and service at reasonable price. We always get their boneless ribeye and they are grilled to perfection n taste amazing. On our last visit tried their short ribs spring rolls and it was just fantastic. We would love to try the other items on their menu but we love the ribeye so much that we just don't. Please don't waste your money on all those high end steak houses when u can get same quality steak and dining experience at almost half the price at Backroom. Cheers.
