Scott's Review
As those who have lived in the area longer than five years know, Christner’s was originally known as Del Frisco’s Prime Steak & Lobster. It was not part of the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle chain, though both had the same origin. Long story short, now in operation for more than 25 years and one of the best steakhouses in Orlando....

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House has come into the area in a big way, with an emphasis on the big. The new restaurant on International Drive is huge. Of course, the main event here is meat -- big, expensive hunks of it, nicely broiled and juicy.... Read more

Scott's Review
Even though this is a restaurant out of New York, don't confuse it with the legendary Manhattan steakhouse. Not that you would once you stepped inside this casual yet boisterous place. The signature item here is the same-named cut of meat.

I must say it was an impressive looking steak, a beautiful 24-ouncer that had been cooked perfectly to the requested medium-rare. And with the exception of the first bite, which was all gristle, the meat was quite tender, and at $19.99 for such a large steak, it seemed to be quite a deal.

So would it have been too much to ask that the steak have some flavor? It had none. It was ultimately just a big slab of meat that could substantially fill an empty stomach without offering much in the way of enjoyment. It was served with a side of penne with a passable red sauce.

Unfortunately, management seems to think that anyone coming in through the door is a tourist. They're not treated poorly, they're just not treated as though they're coming back again. There are dozens of places on International Drive that are better than Delmonico's.

The name refers to its location on the top floor of the Reunion Grande hotel. Great views of distant theme park fireworks, and good steaks to boot.... Read more

Scott's Review
Fiorenzo, the Hyatt Regency Orlando restaurant formerly known as Fiorenzo Italian Steakhouse, has emerged from its monthslong renovation. Even though it shortened its name, it is still Italian and you can still get a good steak. With the reopening of the restaurant, Jared Gross, who made the hotel’s Urban Tide seafood restaurant a destination for locals, has taken the role of chef de cuisine at Fiorenzo. There wasn’t a thing wrong with the food here before, but with Gross’s direction I expect it to soar.... Read more

Scott's Review

When it's on its game, Fleming's can produce steaks as good as anyone's. The atmosphere isn't quite as posh as a Ruth's Chris, and it isn't as clubby as Del Frisco's, but it's quite pleasant and relaxing. A newer location recently opened on Restaurant Row Orlando, at 8030 Via Dellagio Way. Phone 407-352-5706. If you don't want to commit to a full meal's calories or price, consider a meal in the bar area, where a burger (not available in the dining room) is the thing to order.

The Restaurant Row Fleming's does a nice job with its steaks, but it has a big following for its happy hour, which includes a terrific burger at a killer price. Wines are a forte here, so spend a little of what you save on the bar snacks for something special from the grape.... Read more
