Our party of four enjoyed an outstanding meal, served hot and so delicious. I do wish I had rolls or bread to go with my soup, however. It was fun to be entertained by a nice magician and we loved being able to have a quiet conversation with each other since the dining room sound allowed it and we couldn't overhear other guests! Amazing!

Truly Fantastic! This was our very first visit and we are so excited to head back. The food was exceptional, service was awesome drinks were on point, and overall, it was a remarkable place. As a lover of chocolate cake, they had the best chocolate cake we have ever eaten (I will upload a pic). Since this was our first experience at the Kitchen, we opted for the Magical Dining Menu to give it all a try. The food did not disappoint.

We enjoyed the Bacon & Balsamic Brussel Sprouts, Hand-Breaded Calamar, Petit Filet, Stir Fry Cauliflower "Rice" with Grilled Shrimp and of course the Black Velvet Chocolate Cake.

Our waiter Bryan was just awesome and offered great recommendations! Thank You Bryan and a BIG KUDOS to Chef Patrick. Everything was just amazing.

Sat for 10 minutes while we watched the server who was supposed to be ours walk around and talk with others. She knew we were there because she was just at another table right next to us. We finally had to get up and get a manager involved to get service. After that everything was great. Also listening to same server tell another table the incorrect information about getting around Hard Rock and the parks was hard to hear.

We had a late lunch there while on vacation. My husband had the fried calamari appetizer which was an extremely generous serving - definitely meant for sharing. Then we had sandwiches for the entree…a burger & chicken club sandwich. Both were delish!

The service was very friendly & attentive.

We’re planning to return in our next universal Orlando vacation.

The food is horrible! We used to love the food at this restaurant the last time we were here. The only thing good was the server and the desserts. Very disappointed for 100 bucks!!

We went while on vacation for our anniversary, and saw the event for the prix fixe menu. The service from the hosts to our server, Jonathan, was fantastic. Everyone was welcoming and very attentive. The food was delicious and the timing of the meal (we had three courses) was perfect.

Food was kind of bland except for dessert. Waitress was nice but hit and run when serving and also dropped dessert at the table without spoons (chocolate mousse). Had to ask hostess for spoons. It was unfortunate it was like that because we have been eating breakfast there all week and that is great. Dinner just disappointed us for the price.

The breakfast buffet at The Kitchen is the best. This is our 5th time having the buffet and it is awesome. Staff is very attentive to your needs and even with the pandemic we felt safe. Many different foods to try include pancakes, french toast, breakfast meats, fruit, cereals, eggs, and pastries. Almost forgot-they also do custom made omelets.
