We decided to visit this restaurant after reading about its popularity on The Orlando Villas Forum.
The restaurant is situated in The Plaza de Venezia at the junction of Sand Lake Rd West and Dr Phillips Drive. If you are travelling west from I4 it can be found on the left hand side.
Reservations are recommended but not essential, however, we used their online booking facility and received not only a confirmation of our booking, but also a reminder 24 hours beforehand. There is no dress code but it was definitely more smart casual than park casual.
The restaurant boasts the use of fresh produce which changes with the four seasons and small changes to the menu on a weekly basis, hence “Seasons 52”
We arrived at the menu about 15 minutes before our reservation time and were invited to wait in the bar area, at the time there was a pianist playing live music which was pleasant but not too loud or intrusive.
There were also comfortable sofas in the reception area for anyone who did not want to visit the bar.
The restaurant itself was a combination of booths and tables with lots of space between parties and patio dining for the warmer weather.
Our server was welcoming and attentive without being pushy, he discussed his own personal recommendations and gave us plenty of time to make our choices.
Our party of 6 chose 3 flatbreads to share, a double chicken and garlic breast, a vine ripe tomato flat bread and a grilled steak and crimini mushroom flatbread. The flavours were divine, I couldn’t choose a favourite and there was plenty to go round so much so that although there were some delicious selections we decided to forego any further appetizers.
When it came to entrees we managed to choose 5 different selections between the 6 of us, these included curried red snapper, chicken breast cabernet, fresh tuna steak, filet mignon and I think the final choice a veal cutlet. All were served with beautiful fresh vegetables and rice or potatoes.
When it came to desserts we were offered a series of mini indulgences, key lime pie, rocky road, old fashioned carrot cake, fresh fruit trifle, chocolate mousse, red velvet cake, pecan pie, mango cheesecake, and the chef’s wild card which was a chocolate concoction. We decided to order all 9 to share which meant we got a couple of mouthfuls of each one, just enough to curb a sweet tooth at the end of a lovely meal without leaving us feeling stuffed. We could of course have ordered more if we had wanted.
The whole ambience of this restaurant was superb, the food was top class but best of all was the check! !
With all of the above plus a bottle of red wine, 2 glasses of white wine, 2 cocktails, 2 coffees unlimited iced tea for me (the designated driver on this occasion) the bill was less than $50 a head! !
For this class of restaurant and quality of food we would have expected to pay much more and we will definitely be visiting again.
