“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

For some reason we have put off eating at the Flying Fish Cafe (on the Boardwalk), for many years. Finally, on the last night of our January '14 trip to WDW we took a last minute reservation. Goodness, but what we have been missing over the years! From the outside the place looks ordinary but once inside the elegance and welcoming atmosphere comes into its own. The menu is varied and imaginative in its maritime scope (although there were a couple of non-seafood choices the night we went), and all five of our party attested to the quality of the food served up to us. The waiter was friendly, amusing and patient; we could not have asked for more. After so many years of 'nearly' booking a table at the FFC we are certain to return.

“Good but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

The food here is good and its a nice atmosphere, but we thought it was a bit pricy for what you get. The waiter was very formal, but also very good.Its located on the Boardwalk, so there are lots of things to see and do before and after your meal.

“Just OK this time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

I like the Flying Fish and will certainly go back, but this time it was just OK. A nice thing was that my wife has a shellfish allergy and the chef came out and just created a dish for her with a tilefish that was prepared differntly on the menu. My tuna was nice, but must have sat for a while after being cooked rare bcause it was awfully cold.

My guess is that sometimes at the Disney restaurants, becauuse the size and volune they do, some meals just aren't up to what I usually expect when paying these prices. That said, I still like the place. Next time I'll yry sitting at the bar.

“First Class dining, and yes it is on disney property!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

This very upscale restaurant, which usually requires weeks' in advance reservations, is my favorite. Incredible steaks and seafood, elegant setting, superb service. My wife and I try to eat here every time we are in Orlando. If you happen to be staying on Disney property, it's easy to get to, otherwise you will have a short walk. We enjoy the select cheese tray with our wine before dinner, and really enjoy the 150 year old Grand Marnier cognac after dinner. Be prepared to pay well for this great dining experience!

“Average at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

Average food and staff. Great location and we had high hopes but just average. Go to Todd English's at the Swan....just steps away and superior.
