Omni Orlando at ChampionsGate?

I have to attend a conference there, and I suspect that the hotel restaurants won't be very chow-worthy. Am I wrong? Is there anything interesting nearby, or am I stuck? (I can borrow a car, or catch a cab.) TIA!

  1. I've eaten at the Chinese restaurant a few times and it's fine, though the last time I was there the sushi wasn't good. I can't speak for the other restaurants in the hotel.

    As for nearby? There is a generic Chinese restaurant and an Italian restaurant that I haven't eaten at in while in the Publix shopping plaza. Stay away from the Chilis right by I-4, the one and only time I've eaten there I waited way too long for food that came out wrong. I've also had friends/family experience similiar issues.

    The Reunion resort is a 1-2 miles down the road, they recently opened up the restaurants in the resort but I am not sure how good they are.

      Both Reunion restaurants (Eleven, and Forte) are above average. They are not open on a regular schedule, but both are on Opentable.

        Thanks for your help, Lucky Sven and herbert1. We ate at Eleven and had a really good time. The food was definitely above average; the apps tower and dessert shots presentations were fun. The apps tower and Kobe sliders were our favorite dishes; the only low points were the greasy spring rolls and the tacky plastic glasses. Service was good, and the resto and hotel were lovely - so much better than the Omni Championsgate. The fireworks seen from the pretty patio were icing on the cake, so to speak. I'd definitely recommend this to others.

          They have to use plastic because of the pool. Glad you enjoyed it.
