Wonderful meal with coworkers.
Felt it was very impersonal and rushed.
Billy was awesome and attentive. Food was great. We used magical dining experience. Loved it!
This restaurant does not belong on Magical dining. People were coming in swimwear from the pool. The noise level was so loud. Very disappointing.
The portion was very small I think literally there was one piece of asparagus chopped up in a pile of risotto. Cavatelli dish had a teaspoon of ricotta on it. Hardly any sausage at all. The shrimp for shrimp cocktail or something from a frozen bag the size of my pinky not even a shrimp. Never mind I took 45 minutes just to get the appetizer and no bread on the table
Breakfast buffet was the best on universal property.
Our waiter Steve was great we asked for him the next day.
They make something for us that wasn’t on the menu or buffet but we had it years ago and it was just as good
Yummy, it was good
Great Service!!!! The food was really good for a hotel restaurant. Apps were great!! Defiantly would go back as the menu has a ton of options we would want to try.
We had a great experience at The Kitchen!! Our waiter was great, very friendly and attentive. The food was amazing!!! All of it from the appetizer to the dessert. We didn’t take any pics but wish we had because the presentation was even great! Highly recommend! You won’t be disappointed.
Good food, slow service. Seems there is not enough staff.
$200 dinner, but we waited forever for water refill.
tried the magical dining. it was all great and good portions.
We were all very happy with our experience here. Personable staff with excellent food. We were able to dine during
Magical dining and took advantage of the great menu available at that time. Wonderful time
Food was ok but not really worth the price. Ambiance was too loud. Service was good overall.
Great food, great service. Can’t wait to visit again.
Will definately recommend. Great food. Large portions. Great selection
Delicious food and wonderful service. Loved the magic tricks!!
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!
The servings are really BIG. Had an amazing server.
Good atmosphere, good above average food for price, busers could use some manors when setting or clearing off a tables next to people eating but overall a decent dinner.
Amazing casual atmosphere. Good service and great food!
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 went for Magical Dining. Loved the restaurant and our server was excellent.
Food was delicious and Marie was a Wonderful waitress! Thank you!
We had the prefix dinner which was outstanding all three courses were wonderful in our server Brian was was remarkable always attentive so I give the place five stars
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!!
Good food, good atmosphere, service was always very top notch. Would recommend.
No manager in sight. Should make contact with patrons both at beginning and the end of meal to make sure that they are happy.
Always amazing job! Fabulous food. You must try the omelet station. The chef knocked it out of the park!! Friendly staff! Love love love this restaurant. It’s been a family tradition for 11 years.
The food and quality of the food was excellent the atmosphere was very comfortable environment was very clean and friendly
Went for magical dining. Waitress was awesome steak was amazing.
Great service! Great food! The filet was done according to out wishes. The service was much better than we anticipated.
Magicians were fabulous for the kids. Great service and atmosphere however the Food was just okay.
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.
Great food and service….will definitely be back!! Fun environment.
Lovely place very convenient after spending the day walking in the parks.
We had the Brussels sprouts and calamari (huge portion). Mac and cheese and a buffet. Food was good. Service was excellent!
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.
