Had 630 PM reservations and got there before 6pm. Hostess was polite to say that she will do her best to get us in earlier and did and got us in at 6:15. Great menu. We had the calmari as an appetizer and had a different kind of sauce that was different and tasty. Two of us had their signature dish of NY strip and the Red Snapper in potato and was excellent. Our other friend had the pasta and he said was excellent. Great wine list too. The service was exceellent the only bad thing is, it is a bit over priced but it is Disney. Yes I would go back.

My opinion is keep it simple. Read the menu descriptions. If they are too complex move on. They try so hard to be innovative & cutting edge, they've lost their way. Stick to the simpler dishes like the snapper in potato, or the griiled filet of beef. Cheese sampler is superb, other stuff ...too many conflicting flavors. If you have questions ask your server. Descriptions on menu can be misleading or confusing. Portion sizes are rather large so consider sharing. You can get a great meal here, but you have to be careful.

We managed to find the time to chill out for an evening and the Flying Fish was ideal as it is walking distance from the hotel. The food was good and the service was superb. I had the FF speciality of Red Schnapper and New York Strip - at $45 it was the most expensive thing on the menu but well worth the money. We sat in the restaurant through 3 courses, coffee and wine and never once felt under pressure to leave the table. The place would have got 5 starts if there was somewhere to wait or get a drink while you wait to be seated. Remember as with all Disney restauraunts you need to book do not expect to walk in and get a seat. They do warn you of this but it can catch you out when your running around theme parks all day. We used the Mickey Bands to pay and loved the whole night!

OK so here is the bottom line. Our favorite restaurant at WDW. We eat at FF each time we visit WDW. FF offers a nice menu selection and is very kid friendly. We love the Calamari and the Crab Cake appetizers. We love the char rubbed strip steak. We have had other menu item as well. Service is good but not always great. Area Mgr runs a good operation and has put together a nice wine list. Make a reservation especially if you want to eat early. If you don't have the kids with you, it is very fun to sit at the counter overlooking the action in the kitchen.

This restaurant used to be wonderful. Not anymore. We were a party of four, with a 9pm reservation. We ordered two courses each. Our appetizers came out and not even five minutes went by when all of our main courses started to arrive. There is no way that the food is prepared fresh to order. The server had all our food held in the kitchen until we were ready and when it arrived, we were severely let down. Their renowned potato-wrapped snapper was definitely cooked hours earlier and simply reheated. The chowder had no flavor at all and neither did the truffle mac n cheese. The server didn't come back to check on us after the main dishes arrived. and when he did, he didn't seem too bothered by the fact that nobody was pleased with their dishes. We felt unwelcome and hurried. There are way better options in WDW. Don't waste your money here.
