April 14, 2018 Janean Rudisill

From the Magic Kingdom to magical spa treatments, Orlando sparkles with the promise of adventure. Spend a day exploring the world-famous Disney theme parks, giggling with the dolphins at SeaWorld, or screaming your head off on a Universal Studios roller coaster. For a less adrenaline-pumping afternoon, enjoy the quiet natural beauty of the Harry P. Leu Gardens, or enjoy a seaweed scrub at a luxury day spa. Savor fresh and local ingredients at one of Orlando’s James Beard-nominated restaurants.

Cannot say enough amazing things about this world class restaurant. We love Disney and go once or twice per year with our family if schedules permit. My wife was celebrating her 40th bday in November and she wanted to go to Disney so we booked a trip. We planned a family dinner at Victoria and Alberts (you must book well in advance or you will not get in - I booked it 6 months ahead of schedule for our party of 5).

We have three kids (17, 13, 12) and every other month my wife and I take them out for a high end dinner where they have to get dressed up, etc. They are used to the drill, Victoria and Alberts is a formal attire environment - sons and myself wore suits and my my daughter and wife had on dresses.

They treat you like royalty. They gush over your every need. You will never think about anything food or drink related because they are so attentive that before the thought ever enters your mind they are already handling it.

I can't remember extractly but I think we did a 7 course option. Just phenomenal! The food was amazing and the presentation was gorgeous. There was one course where my youngest son didn't care for it so when the plates were taken away the waiter brought an additional course for him because the chef was concerned that since he didn't like that course he wouldn't get the full experience so they made some extra for him to eat. This is the kind of attention you will receive. He is 12 and didn't care if he got another course or not, it wasn't a big deal to him or any of us, he didn't like it so he didn't eat it , but it matttered to the chef and wait staff. It was important for them that he have a replacement course that he enjoyed. Just a small example of how well they treat you.

Cannot say enough amazing things. We will make it a tradition to go every time we are in Disney if we can get a reservation. It's located inside of The Grand Floridian hotel.

Worth every penny, one of the finest culinary experiences I can remember!

From the moment you enter, you experience extraordinary service. Most attentive wait staff we have experienced, especially for our 9-year old daughter. Their mastery of the wines and menu is exceptionally helpful.

For the food, you simply must try the Pasta Explosion. Perhaps the most delicious appetizer ever. For main courses, we recommend the Tomohawk. Go for it! Then for dessert, the Beignets are a must. One further note for kids offerings, we asked our server if we could order a Cheeseburger, and even though it was off-menu, they delivered.

If you are wondering how it compares to other High-End Steak Houses,
Bull & Bear is simply a level above Ruths Chris', Mortons, and Capital Grille.

Chatham's Place

A fine dining experience like no other in Orlando. Locally sourced ingredients, farm fresh from the Chef's very own local farm. A local favorite for over 20 years.

Reviewed By cbeard - Dalton, Ga

We travel extensively and enjoy great dinners in the various places we've been. Our dinner at Chatham's Place was among the best we've ever experienced. The setting is cozy and comfortable. Bob Rose on piano adds a dimension of ambiance not so common today. Along with the great setting, the service and food are absolutely top-notch. Some will complain about the high prices, but the food quality and service levels attained at Chatham's warrant the added expense. If you're looking for a high-caliber dining experience, Chatham's fits the bill.

Meal notes: The chef provides several complimentary elements during the seating. This included a couple of small appetizers, bread and a sorbet before the main course. We had a Caprese salad, sausage and peppers, sauteed red snapper, cherries jubilee and a white chocolate souffle. All were perfectly prepared.
