I have trouble sorting through all the reviews and opinions on restaurants at WDW. I thought everyone could vote for individual restaurants, and post reasons why they did or didn't like it. We'll see how this works.:thumbsup2

The steak was great, the cheese soup was only so so. The service was certainly lacking.....and this was at the beginning of their night! :scared1: I am glad that we tried it. Someday, we will go back, but it's not high on my to do list.

I gave it a "good" vote. Maggie

I know that I am in the minority- but we did not think it was that great- service was very slow, food was decent- not great. The steak at the Outback Steakhouse was much better. It would try again- maybe it was a bad day.

Gotta second Nikki_Mouse on this one. I've been there maybe 3 times, and it was just average each time. I WANT to like it more - I hear for some people it's a trip highlight - but I honestly have to file this one under "seriously overrated".

I believe LeCellier's signature dish is the mushroom filet mignon, and that is the best meal we've ever had in Disney. DH has ordered other meals from LeCellier and he said they all pale in comparison to the mushroom filet.

I voted for good. We have dined there four times over many years - including when it was still a cafeteria style - and have always enjoyed our meal there. I think it has gained a little bit of a reputation and possibly IMHO a bit overly hyped. It fills up quickly because of good press, the fact that it is not very big and the menu is more traditional fair. Last year we had a great meal there but I think the Filet I had at the Concourse Steakhouse was a little better. I would not hesitate to go back to Le Cellier. We tried to get ADR for October but called too late. This will give us a chance to try something new.

Good food - slow service and that is what kept me from giving it an Excellent rating.

This meal was great. It was my 2nd favorite meal of the week, being beat out by only Narcoossee's because there, I had equally delicious filet mignon but it was with lobster too and I got to see Wishes and the electric water parade during my meal...so basically, thats why I liked Narcoossee's better.

I couldn't reccomend Le Cellier enough. One of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in, at home or on vacation.

Hi, we are going there this August...what does the cheese soup taste like? I mean...is it cheesy, bitter...etc.? Thanks!

I voted average. Our service was horrible and the food wasn't that good, either. Certainly NOTHING to write home about - it's a basic steakhouse you can find at home (except much more expensive and the tables are much closer together).

I probably will not return there but since others have had decent visits, I might recommend it to someone that isn't adventurous and prefers to eat the same stuff found at home while on vacation.

We can't imagine wasting time in Epcot to eat at a steakhouse again.

The steak at the Outback Steakhouse was much better.

Exactly what DH said! I had the salmon and it was soooo undercooked that I felt squeemish when I'd take a bite. Had to give up on it and request more bread. We will not be returning.

It was decent steak, but I have had better closer to home. The service was just okay. The biggest reason I would not hurry to go back is how crammed they have the tables in there and as a design student it makes me cringe. The theming is wonderful, but they have ruined it with the number of people they attempt to squish in there.

Excellent! We went last year for the first time and will go back every time we head to south east Mecca. I make the Cheddar Cheese soup at home. My family loves it. The bread sticks are awesome, also.

Love this restaurant, the mushroom filet is one of the best meals on property. It has to be cooked Medium Rare, and it's so much better than the Outback...

We ate there in September 2006, and I thought it was good but not excellent. The service was great, and our waiter was very friendly; however, I thought the food was a little salty, the tables were too close together, and the steak wasn't as good as our local Roadhouse Grill (a B-level steakhouse). I would go again, but we aren't eating there on our upcoming trip.

I also voted "Average". I've had dinner there 3 times and each time it was only "OK". The service was always very good though; it was the food itself that was lacking.

I'd go back again if my DH wanted to go, otherwise I have no desire to dine there again.

I voted average. We've tried it a couple of times had good service but the food was just OK. Certainly not worthy of the huge hype it gets on these boards.

This is the only WDW restaurant I have left just as hungry as when I entered,so I voted average.

Food is great, and service can be so-so, but lately its been great. We have eaten there at least 10 times and have never walked out regretting it.

I've never eaten there although I love steak. We eat at Jiko's, Cali Grill, Yachtsmen steakhouse, Brown Derby, etc. and all of them have great filet mignon.

We do have a reservation for December though so we'll try Le Cellier and see for ourselves. I'm allergic to mushrooms and can't eat the cheese soup either (too much fat for me, I'd be in the bathroom all night sick.) Hopefully, there are other things that I can eat (plain steak?) that will make me want to go back to Le Cellier. If not, at least I will be able to say I tried it.

Amazing place, been there for lunch and dinner.

For dinner we had:

Cheese soup and caesar salad
BBQ filet and Mushroom filet
Side of sauteed mushrooms and bernaise sauce

For dinner we had:

Cheese soup and caesar salad
DH was able to order the BBQ filet
I had the beef tips with udon noodles and veggies

Both times the food was amazing and the service was perfect

This is one of those places we ate at based on the very positive reviews we had read. We were somewhat disappointed in the place. It atmosphere was good and the food was OK. The cheese soup that gets all the raves was to me at lease no better than Cambels soup. I am glad we went, I will probably try it again but it was nothing special to us. We had made our ADR the day before after we got there but with DDP I would guess 180 days out is now required. We do not do DDP and I am not sure if the menu has changed or not. For those who have not tried it, try it. I have learned that reviews here are to be taken with the understanding that you may have a 180 degree different opinion from what you read when you leave the place..smjj

Well we just got back from wdw last week. We have done Lecelliar for dinner in the past, nice server,but sevice was slow.Steaks were good, mushroom risotoo very good,deserts heavenly. We decided to do lunch this trip and we definitely prefered lunch. The food was better and came out much faster. The server was awesome, and again the deserts were heavenly,but the bill was about 20.00 cheaper.:thumbsup2

We can't imagine wasting time in Epcot to eat at a steakhouse again.

DH & I feel the exact same way. We've eaten there three times and just can't see what all the fuss is about.

I don't recall our service being horrid, but I do remember sitting within inches of a stranger's elbows -- all three times. The place also has a tendency to seriously undercook everything. This is fine if you're into rarer steaks or like this trend with thick undercooked fish, but I like my steaks medium to medium well (and I order a cut that this works well with, NY strip or sirloin), and both DH & I have always had to send our food back multiple times ... every visit. Everything just seems to come out way too rare for our tastes. We have a local trendy place that just opened that does the same thing -- but at least the servers let you know this up front when you're looking at the menu.

Like the poster I quoted, I just can't see wasting a meal in Epcot for a mediocre, overpriced steak.
