“Over Rated”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

The service was ok..food good had the Buffalo.. Mushroom Soup was a classic..ask for the recipe..

Nice choices on the wine. The suggested pairings were very good.

There is talent in the kitchen.. But no quality control..

Now for the problems.. The food was served cold.. NYC prices, Orlando service..never once did a waiter refill the water glasses. Had to get a waiter..another chore. There were six at our table one was served the wrong entree.

I say save your money I bet if Walt was alive he would not eat there..

If this is a sample of the rest of the upscale resturants in Disney, shame on them. You should save your money.

This resturant would never make it in a big city..

“A continued favorite!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We recently had a 10 day stay at WDW, and stayed at the Wilderness Lodge. We dined at Artist Point twice, and I wish it had been three times, it was sooo yummy! The restaurant is lovely, tucked in a corner with huge windows showing the trees and foliage outside. On our first night, we had the Buffalo Steak and the Cedar Plank Salmon, both of which were lovely, as well as the Smoky Portabello Mushroom Soup and the Berry Cobbler for dessert. The fist night, our sever was good, but could have been slightly more attentive in refilling drinks and checking up on us. However, that did not detract from our excellent meal. The second night, we had the Seared Scallops and the Filet Mignon, and again both were excellent. This time our sever was Carlos, and he was perfect. Friendly and funny without being over the top, he made the meal a very pleasant experience, and saw to our every need. The scallops were simply the best I have ever tasted; I was completely blown away with how delicious they were. We will definitely be back next time we visit WDW, and recommend Artist Point to all.

“Good for a Disney venue”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Two of us had dinner at this relatively upscale place. Overall, the meal was good, but considering the fairly steep price, there were some disappointments. Salmon, salads, and desserts were excellent. However, my partner's roast pork was way overcooked. This, despite warnings from the waiter that it would be "medium." The other disappointment was the very weak coffee. The restaurant is comfortable, and, if you are staying at the Wilderness Lodge, extremely convenient.

“Wonderful dinner at Wilderness Lodge”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The Artist Point is a high end but very comfortable restaurant. The food is wonderful; well prepared and consistent with the theme of the American Northwest. Set in the hotel, it is a beautiful setting. It is certainly a bit pricey but well worth the dinning experience. We would recommend not bringing kids here; not really the best experience for them. Without kids, very nice!

“Special Valentine's Day Menu”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Artist Point offered an exclusive Menu for Valentine's Day. Wow, what a wonderful offering. Our Dining experience offered mouth watering Appetizers including a fresh Portobello Soup which was outstanding, wine choices were plentiful as were special cocktails from the bar. Out final choice for dinner was Salmon on a cedar plank served on a bed of veggies and creamy squash. Desert brought more difficult choices, we selected a bread pudding which had the distinct hint of cinnamon bun with raisins. Of course we selected an after dinner drink, cappucino with A&J Brandy to finish off a perfect meal. Our server John, was perfect with his help and recommendations spiced with his personal wit!!

Indeed, this was a Memorable Meal and dining experience.
