We did lunch one day the dinner a few days later. Food on both occasions was excellent, except for the tartar sauce on grilled salmon...... chef, what were you thinking? Not sure about the deep fried bread balls, although my wife thought they were good. Excellent wine list and a few interesting cocktails, worth a try! Well worth the effort... More

Nice place, good service, the only down to the restaurant is that it is such an expensive and nice place that you want to go for a nice dinner. The table next to us had three kids jumping up and down, screaming and running around and bumping into everything including our table (almost said something to the parents, but they... More

Three course lunch. Soup was bland. Open faced short rib sandwich was good and plentiful. Raspberry creme brûlée was a bit tart. Ambience was old Hollywood perfection. Treated like VIPs at the world of color and got special seating.

We've eaten here several times since it opened. The first time was a great experience and we had the best server! The food was good and it was truly a special treat, so we looked forward to returning. The second time was, again, a fantastic experience. Luckily we had the same server and ate in one of the private dining... More

We booked a meal here due to reviews and the offer of premium seating for the World of Colour show. The reviews talking to the excellence of the food were well justified. This restaurant could stand on its own for food and service anywhere in the world, it is that good. However, for 3 diners plus a drink or two,... More

This is a good place for foodies, but be prepared to spend a lot of time and money here. This is tough on impatient kids and their parents, or if you are otherwise short of time and/or money. The food and service are first-rate, so if you have lots of time and money, don't miss it.

Yes, folks, right there in Disney's California Adventure you can have a top-notch dining adventure of your own. The food is superb, the service beyond compare, and you don't have to dress up. Get the special deep fried cheese biscuits, they are a must-eat. We have eaten here three time, once just for appetizers and drinks, once for full meal... More

We chose to eat here as part of a package to see the Disney World of Color show up close. The food was excellent though the overall price was higher than it should be at. As we are from NY and not coming back this way soon, was worth it to watch the show which was amazing! Not to be... More
