Great variety to choose from for the dinner buffet ! Great value, and great ambience! Our server was amazing as well.
It was just pizza and pasta night
Wonderful food, service and ambiance. Like it so much my family ate there twice.
This was by far one of the best buffets I’ve eaten at. From the meat and cheeses to the pasta station to the hand carved brisket station. Every dish was delicious! The ambiance was perfect. It really was just a perfect night. Our server Ali was very friendly and on top of things. We would duplicate this night if we could!
The pasta was bland and uneventful, the meat wasn't bad. Desserts were good.
Not nearly as good as all of my previous years enjoying dinner at this restaurant. After closing for many, many months, they have opened with a red decoration and design of the serving area which at least to me, wiped out all of the Mediterranean homestyle I came to enjoy. The stations are more clinical, the pasta station reduced to a sterile looking and hard to find corner and they totally eliminated the ice cream station. Sadly, there were many people in line wearing bathing suits and other attire that I’m not used to ever seeing before at the restaurant. our reservations were for 7 PM and a party of six so I would’ve thought at that hour that while leisurely attire would be approved, there would still be a higher level after of a dress code present. sadly, after we paid our bill we never saw our server again. Water glasses were not refilled. And dessert plates were left on our table. And even though the tip had been added to our table in advance. We still chose to leave extra knowing that we would be sitting at the table a bit longer talking and enjoying the special birthday occasion. Lastly, management should consider developing a layout plan to place families with small children on the outer perimeter and in the same area with other families having children. Sad that they set a party of five right next to us with two loud rambunctious crying children who absolutely affected our ability to enjoy what could’ve been and should’ve been an amazing time at the Gaylord palms. Clearly this is not the review I’d hoped to of left and sadly as a result of this visit I’m doubtful that I’ll be choosing to go back as often as I have in the past This is a Voice to text transcription so I apologize in advance for the spellings or mistakes in grammar.
I miss the old charm! This was not a good change for me!
Pricey for quality of the food and the small amount of options.
The service was excellent. I think the price it’s only because the restaurant it’s located at the Gaylord.
Was at resort for conference. Had lunch here. The server, Jackie was very nice and attentive. Only problem seemed to be with the amount of people trying to get thru the buffet lines. Very crowded and slow. Food was ok, just not replenished fast enough so felt rushed to keep line moving.
Food was good. Service was excellent. Jackie was our server for both our lunch and dinner on the same day.
Great opportunity to have fresh pasta a la carte instead of a buffet.
We found the restaurant to be relaxing, food tasted very good. My daughter has many food allergies. The chef came out and cooked an individualized meal for her. They brought out a candle and dessert for my granddaughters birthday. Cost is not cheap, but it is typical for a resort.
Expensive. Good quality was poor. For a buffet they has very little choices. Not worth the money
I had no idea this was a buffet restaurant, I think the listing should have made that more clear. The hostess was not very friendly, though our server Luisa was magnificent. Still, its a buffet, so there weren't many demands place on the service people. The food was very good, and the selection of food was modest. $279 for 6 people for a buffet.... I won't be back.
The selection wasn't as good as it use to be which affects the value and we were there at 5:30 and the food was warm at best and not replenished fast enough.
Parking upon arrival was a nightmare. The valet was nowhere to be found, cars were backed up to the point where I was unable to drop off others and self park. Upon entering the restaurant the staff was not very pleasant and were visibly frustrated and irritated with the fact that they were busy.
The food was great, the service was outstanding!!!
We have gone here quite a few times & food quality & choices this time were poor & the cost of the meal was not worth the quality.
Update your file on Villa de Flora. It’s incorrect :)
This was our first time here and I just felt like $38 per a person was alot.
Way overpriced for the food options. Regular buffet- nothing special at all.
I was there for their special event for Easter it was $70 per adult I’ve been there before but this time it was awful I got sick while I was there my husband and my son got sick the same night wrote a report out told the manager and I have still been waiting for their phone call very disappointed was there with six people and out of six people four of us got sick
The quality and abundance was definitely not as good as it was pre new construction. The dinner was not worth the cost. Villa de Flora definitely needs to improve. We frequently stay at the Gaylord and have always eaten there, we will definitely be looking for other options for dinning.
We absolutely love Villa de Flora. We eat there every time we stay at Gaylord Palms in Orlando.
We had a wonderful server and the atmosphere was terrific. However the food was awful. All of the places we ate at the hotel had terrible food.
We used to go the Gaylord Palms often and always had quality meals....this trip was a disappointment.
Cathy our server was amazing!! So nice and attentive. The evening we went there was a buffet. I think its always buffet style I am not sure. The food was good but was not hot some items were cold. The Prime rib and pork tenderloin were very tasty. We were walking around at 5pm so we decided to check the restaurant out in advance. We were greeted by Calvin the host. I explained it was my birthday and we wanted a nice table. We reserved a certain table for my reservation at 7:30 that evening, Calvin assured me it was not a problem. Unfortunately, when we arrived back for our reservation at 7:30 the table we reserved was already sat!! No Happy Birthday or apology from Calvin. Our server Cathy however, made it up to me she was the best!! Gaylord Palms is very lucky to have her!!!
The food was delicious! Our server was outstanding! He went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves!
Terrible waste of money barely any selection and now the servers at the buffet are extremely rude!!! Save your money and go somewhere else it’s totally not worth 50 dollars a person
Great place and service
Food offerings was very limited. Small servings now they serve you which is a shame as it has a nice ambience since it’s been renovated especially in the evening.
From breakfast then dinner it was amazing. The service was beyond excellent. Staff were so attentive amd made the experience very enjoyable.
Perfect meal for our first night staying at Gaylord Palms. The pasta station made my son’s night. Had just about everything on the buffet and enjoyed every bit of it. Although it is buffet style , they had servers for each dish with glass in front to keep it covid safe. Would definitely recommend heading here for one of your meals during your stay.
The service by our server, Rad, was outstanding. He was extremely attentive and personable. The contactless approach to the buffet was very well done. The overall variety of food offerings was good. As for the food itself, most entrees seemed to be on the dry side. The ambiance was too much like a cafeteria, very open and people constantly walking about. During these pandemic times, it was disappointing that Management and servers were not enforcing people to wear face masks while walking to and from the buffet
Really nice dinner, server was wonderful. All the people serving the buffet were very hospitable.
I understand they needed to change format from what it used to be due to COVID, but was taken aback by how much the buffet offerings have been reduced! Price has not been reduced proportionately! And our particular drinks server was friendly but very inattentive. Long-time customer, but won’t be going back anymore...
Amazing restaurant the service was amazing food was delicious
No longer the same quality of food compared to before renovations. One seafood dish (mahi mahi) and that was about it.
Extremely disappointed. The food quality and selection has gone down considerably, price has remained the same.
After eating there for many years we will never be back. The buffet was not very good. The selection was poor and the price went up
Wonderful experience during the holidays
