Service was excellent, good menu choices. For kids and adults. Food and dessert awesome all 4 meals! Grouper cheeks amazing, sword fish best I've ever had! There home made hot sauce incredible. Highly recommend! Validate parking to boot.

Had the catfish sandwich. The bun was definitely too big for the fish. Fish well cooked and thin.
The previous night had scallops. Scallops over cooked.

Was seated right away, there weren't a lot of people there at 8:30 on a Friday. Being in a hotel I imagine they aren't a popular option considering there is so much in the surrounding area. Bread was pretty hard, but sourdough usually is, so no qualm there. Side note - the menu listed on open table was ENTIRELY DIFFERENT than what was actually offered. That was kind of a let down. We already had our minds made up on what to get based off the open table menu. Probably wouldn't have eaten there if we saw the current menu. We ordered a prosciutto platter with Crostinis, ricotta and pickled vegetables. It was good. The pickled veggies were a little too sour for my liking. I ordered the "best cheeseburger ever" which - wasn't. Fiancé ordered the "harvest flatbread". The cheeseburger was massive, very difficult to eat. Had to deconstruct. The bacon was wayyyyy over cooked and inedible. Hurt my teeth to eat the bacon, had to take it off my burger. They weren't kidding about the jalapeños. I love spicy and I love heat, but holy f*ck, this was the hottest burger I've ever eaten. It was so hot that I couldn't even enjoy it. Ate a quarter of the burger and ended up wasting the rest - and I absolutely hate wasting food. Fiancé sent back his flatbread. This thing had a pound of cheese on it. The management offered a complimentary dessert but we declined. We stay at the Renaissance frequently and will not eat there again.

Christmas dinner after a day at Discovery Cove and Sea World: it was a great finish to the day. Delicious buffet even later in the evening, great service and the manager, Ernie Hernandez, was terrific. Looking forward to going next year!

Excellent Christmas Buffet. We really enjoyed the Christmas Day buffet. There was a huge choice of different foods, which were beautifully cooked. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend the Tradewinds Restaurant, particularly for UK visitors on Christmas Day (it isn't that easy to find a decent Christmas Dinner in Orlando)

Too many kids and the acoustic guitar player left a lot to be desired. The only thing the restaurant had going for it was that it was in the hotel we were staying at.

Fabulous baked chicken with a hint of honey, which comes from the bees they raise on the top of the building. Organic and large portion, perfectly cooked.

Wasn't expecting much for dinner since it was a hotel restaurant. Food was absolutely fantastic! Everyone enjoyed and nice wine selected. It was a comfortable place with not a huge selection to chose from but everyone really enjoyed their meals. Nice wine selection too!

Had to wait to be seated and they weren't even busy, then had to wait again for a server. Felt like we were at a hole in the wall diner.

The food and wine was great but the service was surprisingly uncomfortable - our waiter kept rushing us at one point and then disappeared at another point, we couldn't really figure out what was going on. During this whole time we were the only 3 diners in the restaurant.

My husband and I were in for the weekend. Found this place on open table and decided to give it a try. The food was very good and the resaurant was very quiet. Nice addition to the hotel. Parking is only downside, $15 self park or $10 valet with validation from restaurant.

We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the Renaissance Hotel in Orlando. 25 years ago we spend our Honeymoon at this same hotel. We deceide to have dinner at the Tradewinds Restaurant. The food was delicious. Our server scott was the most humble and pleasant person we had ever had serving us. After our dinner he brought us a delicious desert (Oreo Cheesecake). When we got to our room our server Scott had delivered a bottle of wine with two glass to celebrate and enjoy our evening. We though that was the most amzaing experience ever staying in any hotel. Thank you so much Scott for your genourous gesture.
