“good food, very expensive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

The service and the steaks were cooked to perfection! The only drawback was the price. The other thing that they do is give you tickets (with a meal and dessert purchase) to the colored water show at California Adventure. Overall it is great!

“Nicest Restaurant in the Disneyland Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We went to Carthay Circle for dinner and had an amazing time. When you arrive they check you in for your reservation and have you take a seat in a beautiful lounge. Just as a little background the Carthay Circle Theater was where Walt Disney premiered Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and you are invited to come along for the VIP treatment. The ambience was breath taking, and we really felt like we were in a five star restaurant. The service was extremely attentive. The food was very good as well and they have a nice selection. As a side note we did the world of color package, so I'm not sure if the regular menu is more expansive. Since this restaurant is in DCA, liquor is available. I had the scotch Mist, which is Walt's signature drink, and my friend had a glass of wine. For World of Color package, meal is $60 per person excluding alcohol, however; that includes soup or salad, generous sized entree, and dessert. Additionally, Carthay provides excellent viewing section for World of Color Show. Overall and excellent experience I would recommend to everyone.

“Very enjoyable meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Excellent setting and service. Wait staff extremely attentive. Pretty good wine list. Limited menu with someone for everyone. Made mistake of getting price fixed menu, to get premium spot for World of Color. Would have been better to use fast passes for it and to eat off menu instead. Regardless, food was very well prepared with reasonable portions. Will dine there again, but remember, this is inside California Adventure so you need to be in the park to eat here.

“Better than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Our group of nine theme park weary diners arrived at the restaurant and were escorted to the vip room where the Walt Disney history was extremely charming. GREAT SERVICE, the best we had in California! Shrimp was delicious, as was the salmon. The restaurant is beautiful and we would recommend it highly.

“Great Ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Tasty food - great deep fried biscuits. Steak a bit overdone and martini watered down. Great service.
