BYOW-friendly places in Orlando, especially for business dinner?

I will be there for the American Securitization Forum (no, not DisneyLand [snort.gif] )

Ideally, the place would accommodate a larger-sized business dinner. Thanks.

Coq au vin, but call ahead to arrange.

It went a little downhill last time (chef retired), but it is my main place in Orlando and I always BYO.

You don't need to call ahead to arrange corkage. It is $20 per bottle. But you need to bring your own wine glasses, as the stemware there is awful.

Agreed that it is no longer what it once was. We used to go there regularly. But with the change in ownership and the fact that it is not a particularly convenient location, it is not on our rotation these days.

One establishment allows just one 750ml bottle (no magnums), regardless of table size.
For a business dinner of at least eight persons, that did not work. It seemed to value
its policy more than its clientele, which is fine We will dine elsewhere.

I may be late on this, but;

Flemings - $20 per bottle and no limit
Capital Grill - $25 per bottle and no limit
Charley's - $15 per bottle
Ocean Prime - been a few years, but no fee and no limit

When I say no limit that means I have taken 4-5 bottles and not had a problem.
