    Pretty tasty negroni upon request. They offer a $65 three course meal with VIP Fantasmic seating later in the evening. They're roped off in the center but otherwise not very VIP worthy.

    Food was very good (wagu filet) although a bit over priced. Service is lousy. They mixed up bills, cutlery was dirty and one if the main entree was cold. I had to return my plate, which unusual for me

    Food fantastic. Server checked dining plan credits before we even ordered and resisted our efforts to speak to chef about allergies (even though that's standard practice elsewhere at Disney). Weird.

    They claim to have invented the Cobb Salad. Not sure if true but it certainly is done well. This is the appetizer portion of it. Also available as an entree.

    FYI, if ur on the Dinning plan through Disney, this restaurant charges (2) two sit down plans per person. This also includes children. So a table of 4 will charge u meal plan for 8. Keep that in mind.

    Very expensive, the Cobb salad is an acquired taste, I was not a fan but one in my party of 5 loved it. The chicken dinner ($30) was dry. Maybe we hit a bad night?

    Not as flexible re:vegan options as other Disney restaurants. Tried to pawn off a generic salad with olive oil for an appetizer. Not great for a double meal plan establishment.

    Not a fan of the Cobb salad. All the ingredients, including the lettuce are minced up into tiny tiny pieces and mixed all together. It's like eating baby food.
