    What: Dinner – We ordered 5 appetizers (3 mushroom soups, the mussels, and a just added wild boar tenderloin dish. The soup was great as before, but I felt the wild boar was exceptional. Two had the salmon which was very fresh and good and the other two had the buffalo short ribs. The short ribs were a little to done for our tastes, but very good none the less.

    Approximate Price of Entrees: $300 for party of 4 including 3 drinks each + a speciality cake

    Okay for Children: There were several families there, but I personally feel a restaurant like this should be limited to older kids. However, it is Disney so you can expect to see young kids there.
    Okay for Couples: This is great place for couples. It can be very romantic or a great place to discuss business.

    Be Sure to Try: If you go you must get the Mushroom soup. I would also say get the wild boar and split it between your party. The salmon is probably the best dish on the menu when we visited.

    General tips: Reservations are key. We went on a Tuesday night and it was packed. While we were checking in they were turning people away who did not have reservations.

    TheMouseForLess Tip: Disney has a program called “Tables in Wonderland”, this used to be called the Disney Dining Experience. This will save you 20% off the bill. It is worth buying this program. If you have an annual pass it is only $60. I strongly advise you to get this as it works virtually everywhere on Disney property.

    Extra Comment: Come hungry. Leave stuffed!

    What: Dinner
    Tony had the buffalo, with the hazelnut mash potatoes. I had the King Salmon, with Sweet Potatoe Gratin. We had the Portebello soup and the Artisan Cheese plater for our appetizer and then dessert was a Double Chocolate Cheesecake,with a vanilla mouse and Tony had the sugar free Berries and mint mouse.

    Approximate Price of Entrees: $43 for the Salmon,$39 for the Buffalo,Appetizers were $12 for the soup and the Cheese plater was 14. the desserts were $10 and $12

    I seen several children there I guess it would depend on if you felt comfortable taking them in a restaraunt that was a littel classy
    Service: 4, our waitress was really nice she started off really quick but then slowed down after the main meal.

    Atmosphere: 5, it was a little Foo Foo but very home feeling too.

    Okay for Children: Yes, but it really is an adult atmosphere.
    Okay for Couples: “Yes” I believe it could be very romantic.

    Be Sure to Try: The Salmon and the Buffalo

    General tips: I would make ADR’s as soon as you could. They get very busy. Sitting next to the window was really nice you can see out over the lake on one side and on the other you can see down on the waterfall.

    TheMouseForLess tips: These could include advice on portion size, discounts that might be available such as annual pass or anything that might save money.

    Extra Comments: DH said to tell you all it’s not McDonalds that for sure. But it was excellent and we would go again sometime.

    What: Dinner

    Approximate Price of Entrees: $163.59 for two (including drinks, appetizers, tax, and tip)

    Okay for Children: Yes, but it really is an adult atmosphere.
    Okay for Couples: Definitely!

    Be Sure to Try: the cheese platter, the chocolate mousse

    General tips: We sat at the back, near the windows. This was very nice because it was out of the way, but the downside was we were behind a pole (good for privacy, but it blocked a clear view of this enormous room for one of us).

    TheMouseForLess tips: Disney Dining Experience card Ð saved 20% ($30.89)

    Extra Comments: This was a great choice for our parents-only night out. The food and service were “grown-up”, and the atmosphere was not Disney. The chocolate mousse had my husband raving. I loved the cheese platter appetizer. The main courses were awesome too, and there’s a really nice wine list and unusual beers to choose from.

    What: Dinner. “Chef’s Northwest Selection” which started with the Smoky Portabello Soup. We had the Field Greens (roasted beets, hazelnut gremolata, Echo Mountain Blue Cheese, and blackberry viniagrette). DH ordered the Grilled Buffalo Sirloin Steak with Sweet Potato-Hazelnut Gratin and Sweet Onion Jam; I ordered the Grilled Beef Tenderloin with Fire Roasted Corn, Sauteed Spinach, Red Wine Reduction and a Blue Cheese Fritter. Dessert was the Artist Point Berry Cobbler.

    Approximate Price of Entrees: the full course meal was $49 per person. With tax it was right under $105. Tip was a generous $25… cash. Service was excellent.

    Okay for Children: Yes, but go early if you have kids, just to keep any whining to a minimum. Its Disney and children are to be expected, but you really want to savor and enjoy your meal.
    Okay for Couples: A wonderful meal for couples. Food was superb.

    Be Sure to Try: The Smoky Portabello Soup. This was the most wonderful soup we ever had. DH doesn’t eat soup but he sure loved this stuff. The mushrooms have the flavor and consistency of bacon. The buffalo sirloin was very tender (take the recommendation of the staff and have it grilled to medium, max), and the beef tenderloin was a generous cut cooked to perfection. The dessert was everything I expected it to be–but more. (Disney is known for stellar desserts). The blackberries were the size of my spoon and the raspberries huge too. Even the blueberries were large and sweet.

    General tips: Make your ADR and go early. Service was exceptionally good, probably because they were slow. Each course was perfectly timed.This is definitely worth two table service credits on the Dining Plan.

    TheMouseForLess tips: There was nothing dollarless about this meal, but it was certainly worth every penny. With the AP I have the Disney Dining Experience card, which saved me 20%.

    Extra Comments: Ask for the recipes.

    What: dinner

    Approximate Price of Entrees: glass of cabernet (11.75), buffalo steak with sweet potato & hazelnut gratin (30.00)

    Okay for Children: Sort of, I saw families there with small children, but it wouldn’t be as fun as lots of other choices. The menu is also pretty pricey Ð would you want to pay that much, then have to hurry out because the kids were finished and getting restless?
    Okay for Couples: Yes, a very nice, quiet, upscale restaurant

    Be Sure to Try: Everything here was wonderful! The buffalo steak was extremely tender and delicious, and I was in sweet potato heaven with the gratin. They serve carmelized sweet onions on top of the steak that are to die for. I’m a steak sauce kind of gal (much to DH’s chagrin), but the steak and onions were so amazing on their own I wouldn’t want to adulterate it with steak sauce!

    General tips: You get delicious sourdough bread before the meal. Make sure you don’t fill up on it before the food arrives!!

    Dollarless tips: They have a “chef’s special” for $47.00 hat includes soup, choice between two different salads, choice between three entrees (the night I was there, it was cedar plank salmon, buffalo steak, and one I can’t remember), and choice between two different desserts. I was alone and not terribly hungry, so I skipped it and just ordered and entrŽe ala carte. If I go back with DH, probably one of us would get the chef special and the other one would get just an entrŽe, and we’d split the soup, salad, and dessert. Oh, and they only have specialty wines. You can’t just order an inexpensive glass of house wine Ð the least expensive specialty wine started at $8.95 a glass and went up from there. Since I’m used to paying $8.95 a *bottle*, there was a bit of sticker shock. I usually drink two or three glasses of wine with a nice, fancy dinner, but I stopped after just one glass here! ;)

    Extra Comments: A great way to get here is to take your resort’s transportation to the Magic Kingdom, then take a launch across the lagoon to Wilderness Lodge. On my way back to MK after dinner, I was lucky enough to watch the Electrical Light Water Pageant from my launch! Be sure to bring a sweater, though. Once the sun sets, it gets a bit chilly on the water.
