Orlando Eats is a culinary collective; a small community of serious eaters. We have one job: to dine at Central Florida restaurants and tell you about it. It’s a good job. We only review restaurants anonymously, and we do so honestly. We’ll never be invited to glad-hand at industry soirees or private restaurant events as you can’t invite someone you don’t know. Or maybe you can. Who knows. We’re not interested. What we are interested in is cutting through the noise. We want you to know about and support the restaurants in Orlando that deserve to be. This means never cozying up to the help or getting high on hype.
We take our time with featured reviews, preferring to dine at a restaurant multiple times before putting digital pen to digital paper. Hot takes can be found on Instagram (instagram.com/realorlandoeats). We try to speak to the individual nuances and subtleties of restaurants in our write-ups but each is judged on four fixed criteria: food, ambience, service, and x-factor.
