Stopped by to eat dinner one night, but after looking at menu(limited menu and a bit pricey)we went to the NBC grill at city walk(separate write up for that).We ate breakfast here this morning and it was very good. 4 buffets were $90, but if you added up the al la cart menu, the buffet was cheaper. Many, many items... More

Was staying at Sapphire Falls Resort and was driven to Hard Rock to eat at The Kitchen! Was seated right away and waiter was very attentive. Suggested we do the buffet instead of ordering off of the menu. Great choice! Omelet was made to perfection and variety of meats, potatoes, fruit, danish. Everything was fresh and very good. Would definitely... More

We arrived about 8:00 and had about a 15 minute wait so we choose to walk around the pool area which is lovely. The four of us were seated at a comfortable booth. We were tired and hangry from traveling and we told the waiter that we would like to order so that we could go back to our room... More

The Kitchen was a great on-site restaurant. The breakfast buffet had a lot of variety and choices. My wife also has a number of dietary restrictions and the staff was very accommodating and were able to special prepare food just for her. There is also a children's area, where kids can play and relax while waiting for the food to... More

I actually ate at the one in the JW Marriott in Orlando, and it was great! We had a large function there, with about 150 people, and the service and food were outstanding. You need to try to scallops!

dinner started with pretzel bread and an iron skillet cornbread. We shared the fried green tomatoes app, which was excellent. We also shared the Brussels sprouts which were outstanding, as suggested by the waiter. My husband had the seared ahi tuna, which was excellent. I had the shrimp tacos, which were very good as well. Service was attentive. We liked... More

After Reading reviews, I had high expectations for our family dinner. We were sat quickly, which was good- however our server appeared to have the whole section by himself. He rushed by and got our drink orders, then we sat some more. I was anxiously anticipating the cornbread and pretzel rolls, as I had read rave reviews about them. They... More

The restaurant keeps in sink with the hotels theme adding The chefs to list of rock stars by displaying the chefs jackets for all to see. It's a well deserved reconition. The food is kept well and has good flavor. While the Sapphire 's breakfast offers more for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet at The KItchen. They serve just about anything you could want for breakfast. You won't walk away hungry. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. I'm not sure if a Universal character visits every morning but we did get to see Gru and a Minion. Our kids are a bit old for the characters... More
