Wonderful food and service in this faux legendary iconic restaurant. The asparagus bisque was incredible, as were the crab cakes. Highly recommend the lamb, Cobb salad, and the cheese burger with pastrami and fried egg on top. Can't go wrong probably with anything there.

After going to a number of restaurants on our week long Disney World adventure, a lot of the restaraunts are pretty ordinary and leave a lot to be desired. This was a standout. The outdoor seating was great. Food was fresh with nice presentation. The waitstaff was really accomodating and went out of their way to make our dinner great.... More

If you're staying in the WDW area for a few days, you should consider making this your "treat ourselves" restaurant. The food is some of the best we have had, the service is spectacular, and the atmosphere is fun! I had the filet with shallot butter and it may be the best steak I've eaten (and we are a very...

We LUCKED into getting a last minute spot for lunch at this fine restaurant. It was like being transported back to a time when customers came first. I requested a Zinfandel to go with my burger. The server - believe his name might have been "John" (former Software Engineer) - went above and beyond to let me sample a few... More

The service was absolutely exceptional. Crab cakes were excellent, my fiancé got duck and he seemed to love that. My fiancé and I got drinks where they put ice that changes different colors in it it was really cool! This restaurant is truly unique I'd love to return during my next trip to Orlando

We were surprised to find out that the Fantasmic Dinner Package was a prix fixe menu, and almost walked out. But we ended up staying, and we were very glad we did. The food was excellent.

Very enjoyable evening with quality food. Our waitress Ti Ti was so pleasant. If you are on dining plan it is two table service but they give you a choice of starter, entree and speciality desert included for a value of $60. Also remember on Fantasmic nights to get your priority seating for the show. Great way to end a... More
