Sitting on the top of Reunion Resort on the 11th floor, Eleven offers a flavorful magical dining menu with stunning sky views and handcrafted cocktails.

To kick off Magical Dining’s preview week, I had the pleasure of tasting Eleven Steakhouse at Reunion Resort. Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month is one of my favorite programs in Central Florida where participating restaurants feature three-course, prix fixe dinners for $33 per person.

Eleven offers a wonderfully intimate atmosphere and a relaxing outdoor rooftop lounge ideal for picturesque skies and stargazing. The experience I had that evening was super and the staff is attentive. Chef Etienne put together a beautiful menu, and there is something to love in each of the entreés. The Bourbon Glazed Salmon was my favorite and it had the right amount of Jim Beam bourbon. I also enjoyed the citrus braised kale that’s featured in the Organic Tanglewood Farms Chicken.

Reunion Resort features 360 resort accommodations including luxury condominiums, private villas and vacation homes surrounded by 2,300 acres of lush landscape. The resort also features a variety of amenities that include a full-service boutique spa, multiple pools, slides, water playgrounds and a 1,000-foot lazy river – the perfect place for a staycation! In additional to the Magical Dining menu, Reunion is offering a Magical Nights packages that includes a dinner for two and one night villa accommodations for $225*.
