This is hands down, the best fine dining restaurant in Orlando. Captained by multi-time James Beard nominee Chef Scott Hunnel, V&A received the AAA 5 Diamond Award for the tenth consecutive year this spring. The emphasis is on the best seasonal foods sourced from around the world: Japanese Wagyu beef, cold-smoked Maine lobster and Niman Ranch lamb. These are presented on both prix fixe and a la carte menus with sophisticated wine pairings, such as sake-soy marinated king salmon with bok choy and soy beans served with a Marcel Diess Pinot Blanc Bergheim from Alsace. Named for the longest-reigning British queen and her consort, everything about Victoria & Albert’s is elegant, from the exquisitely turned-out Queen Victoria Room with its wood paneling and oil paintings to the style of service, provided by servers in 19th Century garb. Men are expected to wear a jacket and slacks (tie optional), ladies should wear a cocktail or other nice dress or dressy pantsuit. Children under 10 are not served at Victoria & Albert’s and reservations are strongly suggested. Expect to spend $100 per person, plus tax and gratuity, minimum—more if you order the prix fixe, Chef’s Table or wine pairings—but it is so worth it.
