Fork and Spoon is now my favorite restaurant n Orlando including all the Disney and Springs restaurants. The service from start to finish was so attentive and caring. Brady reviewed the menus and made sure we knew everything about the options including some off menu choices. Miguel brought a fabulous Cucumber Ceviche tantalizer and chatted with us about the tastes and flavors that make Fork and Spoon special. Carlos brought bread and made sure that our glasses were never empty. He even brought more Brioche when my husband kept stealing tastes of mine. Nathean brought our Hamachi Crudo that Brady recommended. It had the perfect amount of sweet, sour and heat. We had a lovely aged rib-eye which was crusted perfectly along with roasted cauliflower and avocado fries. I highly recommend all of the above. The cauliflower was juicy (not sure how that’s possible) and the fries were warm with a touch of heat and fun crunch (not the usual way to describe avacado). Carlos cleared our table and made way for Nathean to bring a Champagne sorbet palate cleanser. My husband and I didn’t say anything but he noticed we weren’t eating it and that we didn’t have an alcoholic beverage with dinner and came back and replaced it with a delicious apple sorbet. It was perfect and so thoughtful and attentive. The best part of the night was the Lychee dessert. While every dish was impressive the combination of flavors with the Lychee pana cotta was something I would come back just to have again. Every detail made the evening a lovely experience. Read less

We are staying for 5 nights, completed 4 already. It’s so compelling, we wanted to share before check out. 1. The staff has been flawless. Flawless. Check in. In room dining, housekeeping, coffee bar, cleaning throughout the resort, pool, highball and harvest, lobby lounge, blue- flawless service, pleasant, 10/10 2. Amenities- ritz kids club blows us away. Staff are inventive, tons of crafts, love that it’s not screen focused. 3. Covid safety- 100% all staff wearing masks appropriately. Guests- meh- but not the hotel’s fault. Public bathrooms for restaurants were cleaned frequently. Our room was spotless 4. Rooms- we are in 701. 2 balconies, quiet, shaded. Decor is modern and calm. Exactly what you’d expect for a ritz. 5. Food- highball and harvest- excellent. Blue and lobby lounge- also. In room dining was under 25 minutes for 3 of our nights’ dinner which is unheard of fast anywhere we’ve ever been. 6. Ambiance- the pool, the restaurants, random pool tables, air hockey, Fusbal tables make it a really fun experience whether you have adult families, young couples or young children. That sets the vine for a high class, family oriented, heart warming getaway. Any questions were welcomed and met with helpfulness from booking with cam, to check In to the chat via app. Everywhere we went we were just met with warmth and helpfulness. We. Will. Be. Back. Thanks for making our first COVID vacation so relaxing and magical. Read less

Unique menu items with highly creative ingredients. Our server, Diana, was extremely professional and personable, going to the extent to learn our names. Loved this dining experience. Would love to return.
