We loved it here so much we went twice. Consistently good food. Great cocktails and an unbeatable atmosphere in the evening. Take the time to walk around and look at the movie props. Great service, can be very busy so make a reservation for the evening.

The food here is decent, but you are paying for the atmosphere. The food itself is way overpriced. This is an extremely noisy place with all of the ambiance of a singles bar. It looks just as tacky on the inside as it does on the outside. The service is very good, however.

Had been dying to try this place only to wait 40 minutes after having a reservation to be seated ordered breadsticks which were flavorless. Ordered the sampler and it was not worth it at all.

We decided to spend some time at Downtown Disney on Christmas Day. Planet Hollywood is one of several large restaurants and we chose them as we like the theme inside. Had to wait 40 minutes for a table in an upstairs bar area. Bit chaotic. However, there's always something happening and the time went well. We were served by Christie... More

The main difference between dining here and any other restaurant around Orlando is Planet Hollywood has some interesting articles to look at hanging from the walls and roof. The food is as good as anywhere else, but more expensive. I guess it's one of those items to tick off the list as done, but I'm sure they don't get much... More

Went here for dinner the first night at disney and loved it. We arrived and with reservations were seated almost immediately. The dinner went fast enough but even if the service was slower than normal based on volume, there was tons to look at and see. We took turns wandering through the store and around the restaurant and time flew... More

We enjoyed our visit. The ribs were delicious and we were unable to finish the large amount of food. The cost of the ribs were over $28.00, so quite expensive. Beware of ordering a beer and having to pay for the Planet Hollyood glass it comes in. We were not told and asked the waitress to remove the $5.50 charge,... More

We went for lunch on Friday and were there at opening. We waited more than 5 minutes for someone to get to the table at all, and it took more than 45 minutes to receive our food despite the fact that the restaurant was not busy. For 3 burgers, a lasagna, and 4 non-alcoholic beverages, our bill was more than... More
