You may not be familiar with Ceviche Orlando, given the fact it’s sorta tucked-away in rarely visited downtown Orlando’s Church Street. I actually went there with a group of friends for the first time a couple of weeks ago. “Interesting experience” is sorta my take on the place.
The atmosphere is really great. Large, open dining room, bar that overlooks the main room. Very cool, and different from other venues located in the downtown Orlando area. There’s a great community feel, and I really like that. This was certainly one of the most positive aspects of the experience.
The service was incredibly slow. Granted, our party was fairly large but in my opinion the service shouldn’t suffer for that. We only had one waiter dedicated to our party; a second server would’ve certainly helped out.
Coupled with the rather slow service, the waiter had a not-so-pleasant attitude. He actually dropped the “f bomb” to one of my friends, which I thought was inappropriate.
My last beef with Ceviche in downtown Orlando is the menu. While there’s some really great dishes available, there is a lot of seafood…and I’m not a huge seafood fan. I ended-up having some amazing meatballs, but items of that nature were few-and-far-between.
All-in-all I’d have to say I feel so/so about Ceviche. As with any restaurant I’m definitely willing to give it another shot, but there have to be some major improvements before I give-up some glowing reviews. Ceviche: wanna have me come back and have another meal?
