My husband and my son and I had an outstanding dinner here. I had the Filet of Beef with white truffle oil in the potatoes.It was cooked perfectly and just superb! The chocolate sphere dessert was amazing. My husband and I shared the Grand Marnier dessert flight of liquors that are 50 and 100 and 150 years old. The chocolate... More

This was truly a delicious experience in dining. The food tasted fresh and was mouth watering. The atmosphere is exactly what I envisioned it to be. There were 5 in our party. The service was quick and efficient even though we had a few special requests. It was a nice sit down, clean restaurant. I would highly recommend trying it... More

Outstanding food and service. My husband and I shared the corn and lobster soup that had 3 amazing lobster corn fritters floating on top. For dinner I had the salmon and my husband had the duck. Both were AMAZING!

Visited this restaurant for dinner. I'd been once about fourteen years earlier and didn't like it that much but I'm so glad we went back. Started off with the margarita flight, all three of which were delicious. Our waiter was really friendly, knowledgable about the menu and couldn't have been more friendly. We tried quite a few items on the... More

We attended the Brown Derby for dinner as part of the Fantasmic dinner package, the show made the dinner better than it would have been otherwise. As I am writing this a year later cannot remember what we ate as a family, it was good but not great in my mind of costing 2 meals on our meal plan. We... More

The manager Jill was so rude and actually lied to us at the start of our experience here. The waiter was very nice but that may have been due to his fear for his tip as we told him how displeased we were with the manager. The other wait staff was rude as well and not accommodating. The food was... More
