    We came from Ohio to visit our daughter and the one place we had to go to was Christners. We come every time we r in Orlando. The experience is amazing. We usually ask for Eduardo but he was too busy to wait on us so  Dustin stepped up and he was amazing!!!! Top notch service and very personable. Will continue to come here for amazing service and fantastic food.

    Business dinner, warren our server made our experience. Great night, only thing that was subpar was the bread was not warm, asked waiter assistant to bring new but I think he thought we were kidding and the dry aged steak had so much butter it had lest taste than the filet. Still amazing and once again warren was fantastic. Best steakhouse in Orl and don’t forget to order the calamari and ahi tuna as appetizers and the Mandrin orange cake for dessert

    We ordered several different steaks, the shrimp appetizer, soup, Caesar salad, crab cake and desserts. The soup was a vegetable beef and was outstanding. Everything was delicious. You have to try the orange cake and the New York Cheesecake. The Cheesecake apparently will change your life. Highly recommend this restaurant. Pleasant staff and wonderful place!

    Nothing like a family owned steakhouse to provide a really special experience. It’s clear that they strive to be the best. Every item we ordered was excellent, from the seared ahi tuna, to the steaks and chops. We really enjoyed their bourbon and wine selection. Their beverage director, Dan, was super helpful with the whiskey choices. Will always try to stop here for dinner when I’m in Orlando

    Some of our favorite items were the crab cakes, strip steak, and some of the best mashed (chateau) potatoes we've ever had. If you like bourbon, be sure to try their version of the Heaven's Door.

    It's been a long while since I have been here and it was my hubby's first visit. The food wasn't as tasty as I remembered it but the atmosphere and ambiance are really what made it an enjoyable date night. Our cocktails were delicious as well as dessert. We could have skipped in between. Also, we didn't mention it to each other at the table, but on the way home we both expressed how we felt a bit rushed by our server. There's other steak houses to explore before going back to this one for us.

    Our waiter David was everything you want in great service. On top of everything but not overly so. Really paid attention to all the cue's. Food as always was excellent. $22.00 for an Old Fashion was steep when ordered not knowing the price. It was a birthday celebration so we were ok with it. Just a class act restaurant who comped the desert for the birthday girl! This caliber of restaurant is why we come back over and over and choose it for special occasions.

    I had the lamb, which was seasoned and cooked to perfection. My boyfriend’s steak was as well. The waiter recommended a potato side, it was chunks of potato and cheesy goodness, great taste. We also had the broccoli. We shared a slice of carrot cake. Very large piece and so rich and decadent. The entire meal was excellent!

    We love fine dining and are always willing to try out new places and came across Christner's on line, so we decided to give it try last night. We had great service from Caitlyn! She was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. We ordered the Ahi tuna and crab cake as appetizers. The tuna was delicious but the crab cake was barely warm, but had a great flavor. My boyfriend had the Salmon and that was delicious. We ordered one side of broccolini to split and that was undercooked and not hot at all. I ordered the 10 Oz lobster and it was overcooked, chewy and barely warm and the butter was not very warm, so I was disappointed.
