We were seated quickly during a busy time; the manager himself had us seated in the outside bar area. It was great timing since we were trying to get a meal in before a show started in about 30 minutes. The Cobb Salad and Crab Cakes were wonderfully paired with the California 37 Cabernet. Food was good and fast; check... More

We went here for the first time - we had 5 kids under the age of 8 so we weren't sure how it would be. It was great! Our server was very attentive and made the kids feel special by making Shirley Temple drinks for them. The food was excellent. We had salmon, cobb salad, and the pork tenderloin. Everything... More

The service was friendly, yet crisp and professional, just what you would expect from a first class restaurant. The food - mine the Grouper dinner and My wife's the entree size Cobb salad - was absolutely superb. The grouper was flavorful but the coating did not overwhelm the taste of the fish. It could not have been better. My wife... More

My friend and I had lunch here during our trip for our 40th birthdays and we were not disappointed. Service was fantastic - our waiter did seem to get 'lost' later in our meal but he was very attentive for the most part and helpful as well in making wine selections for our main course. The food....I can't say enough... More

We thought our first bad experience with service at this restaurant (about 3-4 years ago) was anomalous. It wasn't. Some of the food is actually pretty good, but some, like the salmon was sent back once, and still came back inedible. The food that is good is more than compensated for with the dismal service. If you go to a... More

Decided, with hesitancy, to try this place for dinner. We had res at Citrico's but have been there many times,so wanted something different. Upon arrival, reception and hostess staff were very friendly, we were seated immediately even though we arrived over 30 minutes early. Waiter Sami was outstanding. We will request him when we return. Once seated, we could see... More

We've been here before, and it was excellent. Maybe it was too good last time, and had falsely elevated our expectations. Seemed to take us a very long time (booked for 15:15, we left at 18:15), and the service was slow. I don't know if they'd had an unexpected busy day, but the staff seemed to be covering too many...

Quiet inside. Again, no small plates. Large, hot dinners served at lunch. What's wrong with a good sandwich? There's not a lot of variety at Disney restaurants, mad it seems that this one has even less. However, what they do serve is quite good. Free range chicken breast was served filleted on an avocado sauce. Never are green vegetables served... More

An excellent experience of what a swanky restaurant might have been like in old Hollywood. Lots of sketches of actors and actresses adorn the walls. Our server was very friendly. My daughter had the grilled cheese which was very nice. I had the Lamb and my wife had the Filet. Both were presented very nicely and tasted excellent. The mini... More
