The Ravenous Pig gets high marks. Orlando isn't a great destination for foodies but this place manages to impress. Certainly off the beaten path for tourists, the Ravenous Pig is for locals. High quality progressive pub grub served in a space that would be more at home in TriBeCa than in a road side strip mall.
Everything we had at our table was excellent. Favorites were the: lobster tacos, heirloom tomato salad, and any and all of the desserts.
The Ravenous Pig has a great wine and craft beer list with a wide variety of wines available by the glass.
The only reasons I didn't "love it" was the service. A high end restaurant should be more flexible regarding substitutions (which are explicitly prohibited). Our waiter wasn't particularly friendly or attentive.
Brush up the service and the Ravenous Pig would be world class.

My one and only 5 stars restaurant review in all of Orlando area. Trust me, it wasn't because of all the disappointing dining experience in the theme parks and tourist area. The food at The Ravenous Pig was just amazing.
Whenever I ask for Orlando restaurant recommendations from any foodies, The Ravenous Pig always came up. It was my most anticipated meal during my last trip to Orlando and I was not a bit disappointed.
They got the best bacon. Every strip was paper thin and incredibly crispy. Get a glass of their Old Fashioned and you know what love is. Ever since then I have a constant craving of bacon infused cocktails.
House-made Charcuterie and Artisan Cheese was definitely their signature item. What they on the platter changes every day but I doubt you will be unhappy with anything there. Cured meats were great of course, but even the pickled vegetable (I had cauliflower that night) was wonderful.
If I continue to list out all the fascinating food I had I think this review explode. Without boring you to death, I will just tell you everything I had from bread service, drinks, appetizers, entree to dessert were simply out of this world.
Portions was just right. An appetizer, entree and dessert will get you comfortably full but not having to worry about boxing food home. Perfect for out of town visitors like me.
I was very happy with the service. It was attentive but non intrusive. My server was knowledgeable of the menu and provided good recommendations. I also appreciate how she paid attention and not ask me how the food was until after I have actually had a bite. (I took my time to photograph my food, mind you.)
The gastropub ambiance was great. Just the perfect place to grab a drink and have an intimate but casual gathering with friends.
I almost can't believe how affordable the food was (considering the quality). I felt really stupid spending so much more eating at other inferior restaurants. From now on, I will eat at The Ravenous Pig every time I visit Orlando.
