We had dinner for a party of 7 of us last Thursday (10/25/12) at Victoria & Albert's after hearing rave reviews from our daughter and son-in-law about V&A for several years. Coming in with high expectations, I must admit that they were exceeded - Victoria & Albert's excels in all aspects. The cast members that work in the Disney restaurants are usually very good, but it is obvious that the best-of-the-best get to work at V&A. The meal itself was spectacular - after the Amuse-Bouche I had Masago Crusted Gulf Shrimp with Ponzu Vinaigrette, Dover Sole with Toasted Capers and Preserved Lemon, Porcini Mushroom Soup with Wild Mushroom Bread Pudding, and for the main course Australian Kobe-style Beef Tenderloin with Smoked Garlic-Potato Puree. We also ordered some fresh truffles on the side. This was followed by a cheese course of Montgomery's Cheddar, Gouda Reypenaer XO, Colston Bassett Stilton, and Sottocenere Al Tartufo. Dessert was the Carmelized Banana Gateau. Each and every course was delicious, the presentations were interesting, and the wine parings were exceptional. I particularly enjoyed the Domaine de la Solitude Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc - I didn't even know that there was such a thing as a white Chateauneuf-du-Pape prior to enjoying this one. Three people in our party had the Iwate Japanese Beef Tenderloin with Oxtail Jus (Wagyu beef) and raved about it, and everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the meal, the service, and the experience. Yes, it is an expensive dinner, but an excellent value in my opinion.
