Had an issue with my reservation. I booked a reservation for 7 people at 11:30am for business meeting. Received confirmation back that my reservation was accepted. We show up prior to 11:30am reservation and then find out that the restaurant does not open until noon? How does this happen? Why would my reservation online accept / confirm a reservation at 11:30am when the restaurant does not even open up until noon? Crazy, right? Another issue is why does Tony Roma's open up at noon? Most restaurants open up for lunch at 11 or 11:30 am? Very odd.

Amazing food, amazing server!! I’m so upset I have forgotten his name!!! He was so lovely with my girls and was very attentive!! My only negative for this restaurant was the female toilets, they could have done with some attention with the cleanliness. Other than that we enjoyed ourselves!! We will be back when we next visit Orlando!! 😁

Sadly on this occasion we were all disappointed, having used Tony Roma’s around the world since Plantation, Fla in 1978 (Bobby Rubino days) The girl on the door was curt and there was a general lack of staff. Our waitress (Gina - I believe?) Did her best, and we tipped decently. It was not her fault that she was having to carry out other people’s work (helping serve behind the bar) at the expense of being on top of her game, serving her tables. The re-fit has taken place since we were last in Orlando. We were not 100% sure about it. Seating booths seem too small for large people - that we are not !. I don’t personally like the general feel of the large open plan area. Perhaps this was designed to increase seating capacity, but it feels as though the atmosphere has been partially lost. A massive improvement with the toilets (much needed) and lastly the food. I only ever go for the ribs and they were fine, although I prefer to see a large long rack on the plate, rather than what appears to be 2 half racks on top of each other. Nevertheless, they were tender. I was disappointed that the barbecue beans have disappeared from the menu as for me, they compliment the ribs & fries perfectly. There were 2 steaks on our table of 4 also. My wife has a tomato allergy, so impossible for her to eat ribs. They said that the steaks were OK, but if we all have a steak evening, we would always choose The Outback first. Stella glass size/price ratio too expensive. Tony Roma’s has been a way of life for me, as I say, dating back to the 70’s. I even have memorabilia at home in the UK, so I am sure we will give your restaurant another visit soon. I am pleased you gave me this opportunity to comment, which I would have not bothered to do had you not asked. Therefore, I take my hat off to you for spending loads of money on the refurb, but there are things which need improving to back your spend up, so as you have asked me, I would have to say ‘work in progress’.

OMG everything was great! We were seated within 15 min and Edgar our server did a terrific job keeping our drinks full and checking on us often. The good was delicious as always. Our family always comes to this spot anytime we are in town. The ribs were perfect and the sides never disappoint. We had a great time celebrating a birthday.

We dined at this location several days earlier and had such a great experience that we decided to return again. It was great to have received a repeat experience, service was outstanding, food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. I wish this restaurant was close to us in SC. You will “NOT” regret the visit to this restaurant, so go and enjoy the food and service.

Me and my husband have visited Tony Roma’s a few times over the years that’s why we chose Christmas Day for our evening meal, It has has always been great food but on this occasion we were disappointed, My husbands steak (mignon $27!!) which we asked to be cooked very well done was raw in the middle so while his food was sent back to be cooked as we asked!!!! I ate my food alone!!! Very dissatisfied on this occasion!!

We went as a group of 5 on Christmas Eve. I ordered lamb ribs and was not happy with them. There was no problem as the manager took them away and gave me an alternate dinner without hesitation. Our waiter, Jethro, was friendly a pleasant. We will definitely be returning.

I have a new favourite restaurant when I visit the states. The ribs are absolutely phenomenal, they fell off the bone. Their “not your momma’s fried chicken” was incredibly crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. The gravy they pour overtop was amazing and I would love the recipe. Cheers!

No need for a reservation when we dined, but it was early/before "Orlando dinner time".... Food was ok, not the best and not the worst. Mussels appetizer was the best thing I had, very good, and mussels were done just right. Bread served with them had a strange after taste though. New happy hour menu started the night we dined, limited but varied selection, but a good value. Staff is still working out kinks, riblets were supposed to come with fries but I got coleslaw instead, and when asked about it was told they did not come with fries..... Yet the bill said with fries. Even without them I had plenty to eat.

The waiter we had so very rude and slow. He treated us like he knew we weren’t going to tip. From the time we got there to the time we left he was never attentive to use. He took 15min to bring us a to go box and from forgot our receipt. We told him we had to go because we were vacationing and needed to get on the road he still had no since of urgency and proceeded to go to all of his tables before we even returned with our receipt.
