Orlando Luxury Restaurants
In a tropical paradise like Orlando, it's only fitting to plan your stay around indulging in the best of the best - including the most upscale fine dining that the city has to offer. Take a look at some of Orlando's best high-end restaurants below!
Standing out from the many bars and clubs that populate the downtown area, Kres Chophouse draws in a sophisticated array of dining patrons with its innovative and upscale menu. Dine on marbled eighteen-ounce rib-eye steak, elk tenderloin topped with rich foie gras, oysters Rockefeller, lamb ribs marinated in Kalamata olive oil, and white chocolate bread pudding. Pair your meal with one of the flavorful wine recommendations from the restaurant's in-house sommelier.
The Capital Grille
The Capital Grille is a unique fine dining establishment in that they are one of the only restaurants in the Orlando area that offers dry-aged steaks, expertly-prepared with on-site butchering and custom aging in-house for a period of eighteen to twenty-four days before their steak reaches your plate. This intimate process preserves freshness and enhances the flavors of already mouthwatering cuts, pairing well with their menu of fresh local seafood and award-winning wines.
Norman's Restaurant boasts incredible views of the gardens, lakes, and immaculate golf course at the Ritz-Carlton, as well as a refined interior of Italian-inspired windows and vaulted ceilings. Helmed by legendary chef Norman Van Aken, the menu here showcases decadent and fresh ingredients. Whet your appetite on caviar or Key West shrimp ceviche before progressing to Florida black grouper glazed in rum and pepper, or a creamy cracked conch chowder.
Texas de Brazil
Situated on Orlando's famous International Drive just steps from Universal Studios, Texas de Brazil is a Brazilian American steakhouse, or churrascaria, that prides itself on coupling Southern Brazilian cuisine with a Texan meat-lover's attitude. The menu at Texas de Brazil consists of high-quality cuts of beef, lamb, chicken, pork, and sausage that are grilled over an open flame then brought to your table by flashing a green card. Servers then continue to pile on the meat until you flash a red card, telling them to stop. If you're not feeling like meat, you can always enjoy their fantastic salad bar selection!
Chatham's Place Restaurant
A household institution in the Orlando fine dining scene, Chatham's exemplifies classic Floridian dining. From filet mignon to Florida grouper, to Cajun-style lump crab cakes and rack of lamb, Chatham's Place keeps its menu simplified, but focused and done right. The ambiance of Chatham's is decidedly elegant, with live piano music and a dining room fit for everything from birthdays and anniversaries to dinners with clients.
