Bad experience began when we arrived for our 6:00 reservation at 5:55. The hostess standing guard out front would not let us in until EXACTLY 6:00! After we had checked-in, we were told to wait in the nearly empty lounge. We waited for about 15 minutes while waiters tried to get us to order drinks and then we were finally... More

Very classy feeling restaurant, like stepping back into the 20's! Highly recommend the World of Color dining package for the best value!

The restaurant was amazing, and full of so much "history". We were dying to eat here and it was nice. I probably won't return just because how expensive the food was, and the food was just average. I've had better food at other Disney restaurants.

I have been to Carthay Circle before and it was nearly flawless, except for this time where I got food poisoning. :( Me and my hubby were celebrating our anniversary this past week and booked the Frozen Dining Package. The food was good (got the Beef filet course) but the salad tasted odd to me for some reason. I should... More

Carthay Circle is one of our "rotation" restaurants on Disneyland visits. Basically, one cannot error in choosing any Andrew Sutton-led restaurant (Carthay Circle, Napa Rose, Club 33 (good luck there!)). We visited early in the Spring menu and - as usual - were in for a treat. I ordered a brisket of beef over gnocetti pasta with an array of... More

We had lunch at this restaurant in CA Adventure and had the World of Color dining package. The food, presentation, and service were amazing! It was definitely expensive, but worth it! We had our 5 year old son with us and he enjoyed it as well. The special viewing area for the WOC show was perfect and it was so... More

A party of 3 had dinner to get tickets for World of Color, the DCA night show. Our waiter Scott is a great guy and was fun and thoughtful and helpful The food is good but more expensive as it should, great options in wine and the atmosphere is so Hollywood you will enjoy a lot.

The setting is very nice: 1940s glamour. Be sure to check out the large photo of Disney and Shirley Tenple as he received an honorary Oscar for Snow White (Oscars for antimated features hadn't been invented yet). It's nice to be able to escape the din of the park for an hour. Service was good: friendly and mostly efficient. Menu... More

We ate at Carthay Circle Restaurant for lunch; service was a tad slow but we enjoyed the extra time to look around at the design details.

Researched a restaurant that had food that satisfied all the diets for my family during our day at Disneyland / CA Adventure. Issue #1 Upon arrival and seating, the first issue was the table we were seated at. it was at the end of a row, with a curved edge, we were a party of 7. two sides of the... More
