Great food, lousy service. I watched our perfectly prepared order sit cooling while waiting for the server to reappear and deliver. The tasty food had gone from hot to warm.

Went to have a business lunch and Alfresco wasn't in this spot anymore. A new place is under some remodeling and taking the space over- farm to table by Ryan Freelove. Looking forward to it!

We were recommended to go to this restaurant by some friends as it had recently relocated in Winter Garden and they had heard some good reviews about it. We took some old friends for lunch and whilst it isn't bad it is just nothing to get excited about. The lunch menu is a much reduced menu from the dinner menu.... More

As it was our first time to Al Fresco, we were a bit apprehensive as our welcome was less than cordial. The young girl with free flowing hair (not appropriate for a restaurant) was not engaged and asked us 'are you here for dinner'?? Really?? Perhaps she might have considered, "Hi, welcome to Al Fresco! (with a bit of sincerity... More

While the food was decent, the service and overall atmosphere will prevent me from going back! Not one server, hostess , or manager acted like they cared if we were there or not. It's really too bad because the music was great

My wife and I joined a few friends for our first visit last night. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. We had two different preparations of octopus as appetizers and I had a red snapper entrée. Everybody love their meal. The ambience was also nice, it is a good-looking interior. We ate early and were the first... More

My friend and I decided to stop in for brunch on the spur-of-the-moment. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. Our server was very professional and our food was delicious....loved the Avocado Toast. The low-key jazz playing was a nice touch - too many times restaurants have loud vocal music blaring. The only complaint has to do with the decor:... More
