Le Cellier means the cellar (or basement where I live :) ) and it seems that you're eating in the cellar of a castle.

My steak was cooked exactly the way I asked for it. :)

Great pictures!!! Thanks so much for posting.

Its funny, when you asked about posting these pictures I had hoped you would have some of Le Cellier because we plan to try it in December. I was wondering what it looked like. :D Looks good!

I have to say out of all the restaurants we had eaten at in Disney, this by far was my favorite. The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere was very relaxing. I would def. recommend it!

Can't wait to get back to this restaurant. We tried it for the first time in June and LOVED this place! I can't believe we've overlooked it for years! Then again, it used to be a cafeteria-like, restaurant, didn't it?

Our service was spectacular and food even better! My mouth is watering now--gee, thanks--it's only early morning!

Tess--It was cafeteria style until around 1997 or 1998. But even when it was cafeteria style it was still good food, and exceptionally friendly CM's. IMHO the overall freindliest in all of WDW :)

Probably my favorite restaurant at DW. My husband would go there every day just to get the Northern Lights. I love their field greens side salad.

We tried Le Cellier for the first time last October and it has become our "must" for our upcoming trip.

We had a surf and turf with filet and lobster that was heaven. And yes we had cheddar cheese soup too, even the girls liked it. Had to fight them off of mine, though. I had a awesome dessert as I am a cheesecake freak, expresso cheesecake, was to die for. But I don't see it on their new menu and was waiting to have some again. This time I think I'm gonna try the mushroom filet, I've heard so many raving about it so I'll give it a shot. I have less than a month now til I can make my ps and I cannot wait to get there!

And yes I agree about the service, it was probably the best we had dinning last time. We've been to Niagara Falls in Canada and had great service there too.

I have a PS for Le Cellier in August and have read that the portions were quite large - looking at the photo, the plate looks a bit, well 'empty' really!

I Assume that the steak in the photo is the 14oz New York Strip steak with roasted Yukon potatoes, grape tomatoes, finished with shallot butter and red wine sauce ($24.99)

Had you already eaten the roast potatoes and the red wine sauce when you took the photo?

I'm worried now that I'm going to be paying a lot of $$ for a meal and then coming out and have to get something else to eat later in the evening :)

Yes, it was the strip steak and I took the picture before I touched it.

Once you have the Cheddar Cheese Soup, pretzel and sourdough bread and maybe even dessert, you'll probably be full. :)

Were there some more roast potatoes hiding under the steak LOL

THANKS for the pics! The rave reviews are also helpful. We have a PS for Oct. 2, out first night in the "magic". We have never eaten there - but now I CANT WAIT!!!

I have what I consider to be an average appetite, and have never left LeCellier empty. I've left comfortable, I've left stuffed like ten pounds of potatos into a five pound sack, but never empty :)

The plates there are large, so they can look empty when they're really not.

can anyone advise me as to where le cellier is.

Do you need to make PS arrangements - will be there early october

Le Cellier is in the Canadian pavillion at Epcot. You access it by walking down the path through the area meant to represent Victoria Gardens.

PS is strongly suggested, we have seen people turned away if they didn't have a PS. We've also heard them tell people there were no more PS's available for the entire day :eek: so I'd make them in advance before you go to WDW.

You'll love Le Cellier :)

We ate at LeCellier a couple of weeks ago and I asked the waitress if they gave out the soup recipe and she said yes and took my email address and said they'd forward it. I'm still waiting...does anyone else have the recipe?
I could make a meal of the soup and the bread....yum yum.
(wish they'd serve the soup in bigger portions!)

Le Cellier is the restaurant that we feel the Unofficial Guide to WDW is most unfair to in its review. In fact, though we've learned to take the restaurant reviews in that book with a grain of salt, we avoided Le Cellier for years because they were so vehement in their disdain for it. Finally, this past May we tried it and LOVED it.

Though we enjoy and respect much of what the UG says, now we usually refer to them as the "food snobs"!

Thanks, SD, for another wonderful WDW memory! My DW and I love Le Cellier -- and we leave there more than full.

While everyone seems to rave about the Cheddar Cheese soup (which is good), I am a fan of their beef barley soup. It is very rich and has a bit of a kick to it. My DW and I usually order one or the other and then share! The breaksticks -- oh my oh my -- those could be a meal all by themselves. :)

I'm dying laughing over here about the portion sizes. Oh, I wish I had taken a picture of the "tomato stack" I had. It was a huge plate with two slices of tomato on it. Think burger fixins size tomatoes, sprinkled with some soy type sauce.

I'll have a sky blue and lime green lanyard on (from Kellogg) with a lime green mickey head attached

We absolutely love this restaurant, but it's even more spectacular all dressed up it it's holiday's finest. We have so enjoyed your pictures--they bring WDW to life and give a lift for those of us waiting to get back "home."

OK - we gave Le Cellier a try on August 15th.

I had the Beef and Barley Soup followed by the 14oz New York Strip Steak, Yukon Potatoes and Red Wine Sauce and DW had the Cheese Soup followed by 7oz Fillet Mignon with Cream Cheese Potato.

The food was very nice and the service good. But, I'm sorry I don't think it was value for money. The portion sizes for the potatoes and 'teaspoon' of red wine sauce were rediculously small.

After dining at Boma and 'Ohanas for less money and getting so much more, I don't think I will do Le Cellier again.

DH had the 14 oz NY strip when we had dinner there in June. He substituted the cream cheese mashed potatoes for the Yukon Gold and they were more than enough for his big appetite. I had the Mushroom Filet with risotto and there was so much food on my plate I couldn't finish it all.

Le Cellier is a "must do" for us on every trip. Can't wait to eat there again on Christmas Eve! :Pinkbounc

Everything looks wonderful.

Thanks so much Laura :wave:

LeCellier is our favorite. We ate there this past December after the CP and it was wonderful. Our server was so sweet. When our meal was over she brought out a fresh batch of pretzel bread wrapped in foil. It was hot from the oven and my DD was thrilled. It's her favorite part. We are having Thankgiving dinner at LeCellier and I can't wait. :D

I would love to go on our next trip!!!

But can someone tell me if this is more of a non-kids restaurant or is it kid friendly?????

We just did Le'Cellier for the first time last week.
IT WAS AWESOME!

It is kid friendly, there were plenty of kids there-including our three!
Our son fell asleep in his stroller right before our PS and they let us bring the stroller in and he slept through the whole meal.

The food was terrific, we all started with the cheese soup (YUMMY) and ate a ton of bread sticks.
I had the 7 oz filet with the best mashed potatoes. My husband had the garic chicken which he said was great. My oldest daughter had the kids steak (great) and other daughter had the usual chicken nuggets. They even had a fun kids drink that comes with the light up ice cube called Northern Lights.
We were all too full foe dessert.

We also had a great waiter, Josh. He was funny and friendly, and oh and also VERY HOT!

We will definately go back!
