Well, we've done Victoria and Albert too, which is fun and "different', but if you want a first class traditional restaurant meal at WDW, go here. The service is as close to perfect as it gets, the menu choices are a little eclectic but delicious...More

What’s to beat, excellent food, venue, staff and to top it off a fireworks display over the magic kingdom! Always a must when we come to Disney, often coming twice because it’s that good!!

From beginning to end probably one of the best if not the best meal ive ever eaten. Service and food was perfect and the fireworks were amazing.

I visited California Grill last year and was very disappointed. I decided to give it another try this last trip. Again, completely underwhelmed. This time we tried the bar to see if the service would be more attentive. The server was very slow and disinterested...More

Unbelievable experience at the California Grill watching the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. Pricey (but what isn't in Disney Land) but totally worth it, I thought. Let me mention the food isn't anything to rave about - it's not terrible but not fantastic (despite what Disney...More

This is a must do for our family on every visit. Food, service, and view simply can’t be beat. Its a fancy restaurant fit for a family and a welcome respite from the chaos of the parks (which we also love!).

Fine dining located high above the Contemporary Resort in Walt Disney World. Check-in on the 2nd floor to be chaperoned up the restaurant elevator. Make your reservation as far in advance as possible if you want a window seat overlooking the Magic Kingdom fireworks show....More

Beautiful table overlooking Magic Kingdom fireworks. Don't worry if your table doesn't - they built an outdoor balcony that does... Food spectacular - from perfect Caesar salad to mussels to flatbreads to signature filet mignon. Even the rolls (extra salt & truffle butter) & frites...More

During the week of January 8, 2018, our family of four—two 50+ adults and two college-age sons—dined at Artist Point, Flying Fish, Narcoossee’s, Tiffins, and California Grill. We view all of these restaurants as five-star restaurants, but we rate Flying Fish and California Grill perhaps...More

Pretty much the norm is $18-$19 per glass for house wine. There is one white by the glass for $11 If the whole table can agree on a wine, you come out ever so slightly ahead by ordering a bottle. Hope this helps you
