“A Nice Interlude”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Our party of 5 (2 grandparents, daughter and 2 children) had a happy dinner at The Wave before heading back to The Magic Kingdom for the evening. The atmosphere was pleasant and our server, Tammy was very friendly and helpful. The bread was delicious and the butter with Hawaiian sea salt a nice touch. The kids meals were well received and the chicken and flatiron steak fine and nicely presented. The leek and potato gratin was especially tasty. We enjoyed our visit and were well fortified to return to the rides.

“Terrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Disney should be ashamed of themselves for the crappy food they serve you and how expensive this Restaurant is. The amount of the food is sooo small and the money that it cost does not get justified at all. I ordered the flat iron steak. I got two tiny triangle size pieces of steak and 4 I mean for real 4 French fries for $22.00. Which is one of their cheapest plates. My husband had the lamb chops that where over cooked for $32.00. I have been going to Disney since I was a little girl and it was the first and last time that I eat at any of their restaurants. We would have eaten better and for way less money at Longhorns or Outback. Don't make the same mistake we did. Do yourself a favor and eat somewhere else.

“Worst food at any of the parks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Over cooked poor cut of meat with was labeled dry rub but served covered in a white sauce. The two sides with my steak were both potatoes (they called one winter vegetables). Our appetizer was only on the table for 30 seconds before our entrees showed up. I was not the only one with a poor meal. The waitress told my wife how moist the pork would be this was nothing but far from the truth. I wish I went to counter service and just got a hot dog (would have saved 2 hours)
