Last-Minute Ideas for New Year’s Eve Dining in Orlando


Whether you’d prefer a weekend getaway, a late-night prix fixe or an early dinner close to home, there are still several tasty ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve in and around Orlando!

Less than two hours from Orlando, Streamsong Resort will ring in 2017 with gala dinner stations featuring all of the property’s restaurants, including dishes such as crab claws, grilled NY strip, veal osso bucco, sushi, salumi, a bevy of desserts and more. $695/couple includes overnight accommodations, resort fee, dinner, champagne toast and late checkout.

The team behind Miami’s Five Star New Year’s Eve is bringing the party to the Orlando Eye from 9pm-4am. General admission packages includes full-service bar (until 2am) and sounds by a live on-site DJ, recreational activities and more. $290/person general admission. 

Say “feliz año” at Tapa Toro with a special 5-course dinner and flamenco dancing. $110/person includes beer, wine and champagne toast; $65 for guests under 21.

If an early dinner out before toasting 2017 at home in your pjs sounds like a dream come true, a number of area restaurants–including The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park, Rocco’s Italian Grille in Winter Park, 1921 by Norman Van Aken in Mt. Dora, Seito Sushi in Baldwin Park, Seasons 52 in Altamonte Springs and on Sand Lake Road, Marlow’s Tavern in Winter Park and The Smiling Bison in Sanford–will be open for business as usual and still have seats available. Cheers!
