Just got back from Orlando. The trip itself was grueling as we were in meetings most of the time. The one highlight was our dinner at Christinis. The staff took a bunch of grouchy, tired businessmen and had us laughing and relaxing before the appetizers even got to the table.
The owner came over and greeted us and got even our grumpiest member to loosen up. Then their musician came over and just blew us away. He played any song that we could name and believe me we took great pleasure in coming up with the most obscure ones we could think of.
Finally the food and wine were outstanding. Our only complaint is that we all ate way too much.
We went to Christinis the other night and I lost one of my favorite earrings. I was very upset and called thinking that there was not way that I would get it back.
Whoever was in the office was wonderful. She had the staff go and look for it and called me back within the hour to ask if I wanted it sent to me or if I would like to pick it up.
The earrings were from my grandmother and I really appreciate the extra effort that they took to get them back to me.
A number of years ago we discovered this amazing restaurant through a colleague. We were closing a deal and he brought us here to impress us. His tactic worked beautifully. The wine list is phenomenal, the food better than anything we have found anywhere else, and the owner personally comes over and jokes with the guests.
It has become the place that we bring our own clients now when we need to impress. I can not tell you how many deals we have closed here. It seems to have the magic touch.
We had been recommended to Christinis a while back by some friends of ours. When we went online though we had seen some particularly bad reviews and some amazingly good ones. We almost ended up going somewhere else. Our friends had been so enthusiastic about this place though that we thought what the heck.
We are so glad that we went. The service was first class and the food was amazing. We ended up going back for the following two nights that we were in town.
I can not imagine anyone not loving this place. It has swiftly become our favorite place to eat in Orlando. We particularly loved the calamari.
We have been coming to Orlando for years and always looked for good restaurants. Unfortunately the ones recommended by the concierge and our taxi drivers always left us feeling unsatisfied. We are not into chain restaurants and Orlando is full of them.
Finally on this last trip, one of the staff at our hotel mentioned Christinis. We ended up leaving him a big tip because of that advice.
This place is charming. The calamari is to die for. And the tiramisu is the best we have ever had. And we actually got to meet the owner who kept us laughing. Our only complaint is that there is too much food. So try to eat lightly before you go there.
I generally do not write reviews. Most places fall short of my expectations. Christinis was recommended by a friend of ours and honestly from all of his gushing I expected to be disappointed, like it was too good to be true.
We got to the restaurant and it was busy so we had to wait at the bar. It was only for about 15 minutes though.
When we got to our table, the waiter went out of his way to make our teenage daughter laugh, which anyone with a teenager knows is not an easy feat. She is even begging to go back on her birthday.
It was her first fine dining restaurant and the staff really made her feel special.
I travel alot and have eaten in New York, Chicago, Boston, LA, etc.. When I go I like to go to the nicer restaurants. A couple of years ago I discovered Christinis.
Everyone had told me how good it is but I was skeptical. After the first experience I have gone back at least three times, whenever I am in town.
Typically I bring business associates here and they are always impressed. The food is better than a lot of New York restaurants that I have been to and the service is outstanding.
The only downside is that sometimes the music can be a little loud if someone has a brithday or anniversary near you.
Other than that, I highly recommend it.
We had read a bunch of reviews about this restaurant and had not been. We live in Orlando but on the other side of town so we had just never gotten around to trying it.
We were really impressed. It is an upscale restaurant but the owner made us feel right at home. You do not get that in most places that we have been to.
The food was delicious. I had the veal chop. It was amazing. We also loved the calamari and the tiramesu. It also had a really good wine menu.
The restaurant was a bit pricey compared to what we are used to spending but they give you so much food that we took a good portion home and were able to have it for lunch the next day.
We just went to Christinis again, which we do every time we are in town. The service was amazing and the food was out of this world. I love how the waiters actually walk women to the bathroom and how they give a rose to each lady. It is these little touches that keep us coming back. We have already recommended it to some of our cousins who are going to Orlando.
Great date place! – We had a great time here. Very romantic. A perfect date place. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The service was amazing and the wine selection was impressive. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
