Best

We've been eating at Linda's for 15+ years. We have NEVER had a bad meal there. The food cooking is rather slow but always worth the wait.

Worst

Wow! How unfortunate. This place had a good reputation for decades. It's actually hard to believe they're still in business. It's hands-down the worst dining experience I've h...

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/14/2013

TALK ABOUT ARROGANCE, THESE OWNERS ESPECIALLY THE MAIN HOSTESS, HA, HA, LEAVE A LOT TO BE DESIRED. I HAVE BEEN THERE A FEW TIMES AND THE STEAKS I PERSONALLY LIKE. HOWEVER, I GUARANTEE YOU A BAD EXPERIENCE, THEY FEEL THEY ARE DOING YOU A FAVOR EXISTING. AND MY WIFE DID KNOW THE OWNERSHIP PRETTY WELL. WEE, THATS OVER WITH, WITH OUR SO-CALLED ST. VALENTINES EVE EXPERIENCE. NO RESERVATION, NO PROBLEM, JUST WAIT, DONT WANT TO WAIT ANYMORE, WELL JUST LEAVE. STEW LEONARDS LARGEST DAIRY STORES IN WORLD OUT OF NORWALK, CONN. : RULE #1 CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT, RULE#2 IF EVER IN DOUBT OR ARGUMENTATIVE, READ RULE #1 AGAIN IDIOT! FOLKS, ALL WHO READ TAKE HEED: DO YOURSAELF A FAVOR AND STAY AWAY, GO TO OUTBACK, TRULY,TRULY. I DO NOT NEED THE MONEY, I DONT CARE, HOWEVER, HOW THEY MADE MY POOR WIFE FEEL EXITING WAS SO RUDE AND CRUEL IT IS TRULY INCREDULOUS TO ME. I SPEAK FROM THE HEART- THIS FAMILY DOESNST DESERVE TO HAVE THIS BUSINESS, THEY ARE VERY SAD AS A GROUP BEGINNING WITH THE MUG YOU SEE WHEN YOU COME IN THE FRONT DOOR.!!!!!? more

Unbelievable 4/30/2012

Wow! How unfortunate. This place had a good reputation for decades. It's actually hard to believe they're still in business. It's hands-down the worst dining experience I've had in years. The food was undercooked, but tasted charred or burned as if the grill wasn't clean. Going with extended family, we were able to share the meals and try out other dishes. It was a toss-up as to who got the worst meal. The steaks were bad, the seafood was bad, everyone was groaning with disappointment. Simply not worth eating. Forget the price tags, you wouln't make food this poorly in your own home. Sorry, but I can't think of anything positive about this place. more

Linda's La Cantina sucks. 1/27/2011

my boyfriend and i went for his cousin birthday and when you first walk in there are stairs and we have a 4 week old in a stroller and he was trying to get the stroller up the stairs while the daughters owner just stood there and watched. i was trying to help him but i couldn't squeeze between the wall and stroller bc it was narrow. and on our way out, we were about to go back down the same stairs when a waiter said we have a ramp. and i said i wish i was told that when i first walked in here. the tea was watered down and i got the manicotti, and the sauce was also watered down. after eating i felt like crap. i will never go there again. the owners daughter is rude as hell. thank god it was a free meal. more

Orlando's oldest and it shows. 9/25/2010

Linda's YUM 7/1/2010

We've been eating at Linda's for 15+ years. We have NEVER had a bad meal there. The food cooking is rather slow but always worth the wait. more

Shithole 7/1/2010

The type of steak you would get in a cafeteria. Weak TEA even. Grocery store rolls and sides. Swishy incompetent waiter.Depressing dining room that hasn't been remodeled since Reagan was in office. Carpet was filthy. Paper napkins. more

Good Eats! 3/21/2010

Such a wonderful menu with the steaks the best I've ever eaten.\r The Banana Cream Pie is my husband's favorite dessert. We enjoy the salad and look forward to next visit. more

Don't go here! 10/22/2009

My wife's parents loved to eat here, and though I've never been overly impressed with the food for the the prices (steaks often over or undercooked), and a very hit and miss wait staff (often found waitresses to be somewhat rude and even once had a young lady who reiked of marijauna and was clearly under the influence of it to my wife and I), the amazing ambiance always kept me from objecting when it came time for one of our family meetups. Pros: ambiance Cons: druge use among staff, poor integrity, spit in food? more

Disappointed 10/15/2009

Looked forward to our visit with friends and the food that I remembered. Everything was mediocre for such high prices. The shirmp cocktail was small and unappealing. House salad was not much. My steak was gristle---of course---no one from the restaurant would admit that. And, my steak was cool---not temp. hot even though I ordered ""medium"". Pros: Friendly atmosphere Cons: Poor wait staff-- my steak was gristle more

Orlando's favorite steakhouse. 11/19/2008

Good Eats 10/21/2008

I am a big fan of LInda's and think they offer great food for the price. The decor could be nicer but hey, the food more than makes up for it. Always good service too. Great for date night or a group dinner. more

All 'round great time 11/6/2007

My husband and I returned to Lindas after about a 10 year period and found nothing had changed! Great food, nice atmosphere and good prices. You do kinda step back in time, the sketches of the area from 50 years ago really take you back. We decided to become regulars! more

Better the second time around 9/1/2007

Although I wasn't impressed with my first visit a few years ago, my dad convinced me to give Linda's another try--this time with two kids in tow. I was pleasantly surprised by the food and the ambience, as well as how accomodating they were with the 3 kids in our large-ish party. While I wouldn't recommend Linda's for families with restless kids (it's too crowded and busy for running around), ours managed to stay seated--and they liked the food. We'll definitely be going again. more

Excellent every visit 7/21/2007

This place is great! My husband and I live for the food and have always had an excellent dining experience!! We would recommend to everyone and have taken visitors here as well and they adore the service, atmosphere and most of all the steaks. I must say that people who had a bad dining experience must always be very hard to please and rude at all restaurants. Most of the people I know and have sent here for dinner have always had such a wonderful time! :) Pros: Everything about the place Cons: Very busy and small wait without a reservation more

All-Around Great 6/9/2007

I lived less than a mile away from Linda's La Cantina all my life, and had never even been inside. Finally, one day while I was job hunting I stopped in to check it out, see if it was something I'd like. Well, the dining room set up was adorable, and the people were all friendly. I decided to apply and got the job. After months, and months of working there I still had yet to come in and eat, so while my boyfriend was visiting from the Marine Corp we decided to have dinner there. Sitting at the adorable booth right about the fountain with the fire in the middle, we enjoyed a delicious and romatic meal. Some might assume that my opinion is biased, because at that time I worked there, however my boyfriend had traveled all over the world, trying all types of restaurants, it was one of his very favorites. I still enjoy eating at the charming little restaurant, and recommend to all. Pros: great food, great service, great atmosphere. Cons: Main dining room a bit crowded. more

DO NOT GO!!!!!!!!!!! 5/14/2007

My Brother and I took my Mother out to dinner at Linda?s La Cantina. The service was excruciatingly slow to begin with. Our steaks finally came out and my Mother cut into her?s eagerly only to find that her $26 fillet mignon was half gristle. My Mom spoke to the waitress about it and she offered to cook her another one. My Mom said that would be fine. A few minutes later, the waitress emerged from the kitchen and told my Mother that they wouldn?t cook her another one because ?All our meat is guaranteed to have no fat?. My Mother asked to speak to the manager. The manager came out and reiterated and REFUSED to cook another steak. She said ?I?ll take it off your bill, but I?m NOT cooking another one!?. We were dismayed! We got up and left. The manager followed me to my car with a clipboard and wrote down my tag number. Within a few minutes two police cars showed up. We wound up paying for our appetizers, drinks and salads. The restaurant then proceeded to fill out a trespass order on my entire family. Pros: We were'nt thrown in jail Cons: We didn't eat dinner! more

RUDE EMPLOYEES - RAW STEAKS 5/2/2007

BORN AND RAISED IN FLORIDA, AND WANTED TO TRY LINDA'S LA CANTINAS FOR MY Cons: LOTS more

ONE OF OUR FAVORITES! 4/30/2007

Although I agree that the parking and atmosphere are too crowded, the steaks are the best, and at the best prices. My husband and I enjoy the table just above the fireplace, and have luckily managed to reserve it each time we've visited. The salads are fresh, the sides are DEEEE-LISH, and we've always had fun with our server. (Although our regular is gone now). We're going again tomorrow night, and taking my parents from Texas - which is a state known for their steaks. Should tell you something right there. Pros: great food, great prices Cons: parking, ambience more

Best Steaks in Orlando 2/8/2007

Of all the excellent steakhouses in and around Orlando, there are several, Linda's is and has always been my favorite restaurant for steak and without a doubt, the best french onion soup in the city. It's the only steakhouse in the last 20 years, where I can honestly say, I've NEVER been disappointed! more

Average at Best 2/7/2007

I had the pleasure of eating at Linda's about 2 months ago for a retirement party. Great food, service and atmosphere. I liked it so much I convinced my wife to drive up from our home in Tampa for my birthday dinner last night. Ooops, don't know what happened but it was not what I remembered. Pros: Quaint, established Cons: some steaks are better than others. consistancy more
