We visit Disney fairly often, but had not been able to secure a reservation at Le Cellier until this recent Spring Break trip. We'd heard of it being the bet restaurant on Disney property and had very high hopes, but were prepared for it to fall short of our expectations as another Disney restaurant high on price, high on ambiance, and relatively short on food quality.
But we were pleasantly surprised to find that Le Cellier met and exceeded our expectations in most areas.
To start with, the wine list included several affordable but decent options to choose from, including some interesting Canadian wines we didn't even know existed. The appetizer list was nice with some unique options, rather than the typical steakhouse fare. We particularly enjoyed the Charcutterie tray and you just can't visit without trying the Canadian Cheddar Soup--absolutely outstanding--ask for the recipe card!
They were very flexible on the main courses as well. The filet sounded amazing with a truffle butter sauce and risotto, but I'm a ribeye fan, they were happy to do the ribeye in the same style as the filet. The lamb was delicious as was the filet and my daughter loved the unique summer squash ravioli. We got the lobster mac and poutine for sides--the poutine was outstanding and we highly recommend it, but the lobster mac was disappointing and really lacked any "special"--you could do as well at home with Kraft mac & cheese with a bit of lobster thrown in. It wasn't "bad", just nothing special.
We tried a flight of Canandian Ice Wine with the maple syrup creme brulee for dessert. The brulee was extremely smooth and light--some of the best texturally we've ever had. But we found the maple flavor a bit much for this light dessert. YMMV!
Our server was just working his 2nd shift, but had clearly been carefully selected and well taught. He was carefully watched by his service leader and when he did get a bit overwhelmed the rest of the staff seamlessly picked up the slack and other than his absence we never noticed a break in the service experience. He was also very friendly and good humored, particularly considering the stress he must've been feeling.
It was a high priced tab in the end, but we all felt it was the best Disney food experience we've had (outside of on the Disney Cruise).
