Solaris Orlando Dining Review

We stayed in a area hotel, but after seeing the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort I wouldn’t mind staying there.  The resort seems to have something for everyone.  Located in the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort is a restaurant called Solaris.  During our media tour of Orlando we had the opportunity to dine at Solaris.  The Solaris is @20 years old.  Currently some of the Marriott resort is undergoing construction, but navigating the property isn’t hard at all.

If you are just visiting the resort for a dining experience, then you will need to park in the garage, and take the shuttle to the main building.

Our server Chong was very pleasant, and very informed on the food.

First we were served fresh onsite made organic breads. (Sunflower, Sourdough, and Raisin)  These were very tasty.

For lunch I had Thai Chili Shrimp as an appetizer, Spicy Shrimp salad, and Steak and Fries as my entree.  The food was so filling that I couldn’t fit a dessert.  The Spicy Shrimp Salad was not extremely spicy, but just right.  The Steak and Fries were superb.  The steak probably could have been cut with a butter knife.

My wife had Florida Rock Shrimp & Clam Chowder as her appetizer, a “Fit For You” Vietnamese Summer Rolls, and Rigatoni w/ Shrimp for her entree.  She also couldn’t fit a dessert due to the lack of room in the stomach.

Our little one had Chicken Nachos for a appetizer, and a Roast Turkey BLT for her entree.  She had the Warm Chocolate Chip Brownie as her dessert.  The Chicken Nachos was large enough for 2-3 people to eat as an appetizer.  Little one decided to eat half, and take the rest back with her.  The potato “chips” were excellent.

The food was served in such a manner that a new course came out as another was finished.  The food delivery was very prompt, and the food was hot each time.  The pricing for appetizers starts at $8.  Entree pricing runs from $20 to $28.  Sandwiches go from $13 to $16.  The “Fit For You Salads” are priced from $12 to $22.

I was told that on Sundays the Solaris has one of the biggest  breakfast buffets.  With each breakfast buffet sold Solaris donates $1 to the Childrens Miracle Network.

If you are in the Orlando area, then I suggest stopping by the Marriott for some very good food.  I don’t think you will regret it.  Next time we are in Orlando we plan on stopping in for the breakfast buffet, so I will let you know how that is.

Our review was not influenced by receiving a complimentary meal.  We were asked to come in and review the facility, service, food, and operations.
