Signature for 3 guys?
 
Hey everyone I am debating on where to go one evening of the trip? It will be me 19 and my two brothers 9 8 all of us are foodies (I know even at 8 9), right now we have a reservation for monsieur paul but im second guessing myself do you think there is a better signature option for 3 of us? monsieur paul seems too stuffy and not really what I want with my brothers. California Grill is our favorite but unfortunately its under refurb when we are there...

What about yachtsman steak house?

If you like seafood, maybe flying fish?

How about Jiko? They have a variety of dishes and a great environment. Plus, you can check out the savannas too!

I second the yachtsmen

jennylyn_b 02-13-2013 06:46 PM

Yachtsmans would be my first suggestion. Jiko is my second.

Another vote for Yachtsman. Honorable mention for Artist Point - where else can you get buffalo for dinner?

BuffaloJim 02-13-2013 07:03 PM

If you're not on a dining plan, check out Bluezoo or Shula's.

And I understand about young foodies - I have 5 kids and the middle one, now 11, has been a foodie since he was about 4. When he was probably 5 or so, my sister came out to eat with us one time. She was shocked when I ordered him a small meal from the adult menu. He simply wouldn't eat any of the items on the kid's menu.

Awesome thanks everyone :) I really want to do Swan and Dolphin but on the DDP I decided on Jiko one night then I think Artist Point for the other I did ff last July and it was incredible but thinking something different and the lodge is so incredible too.

Another vote for the Yachtsman.

Jiko is a great choice! While YS is a good place, it doesn't strike me as all that "foodie". :earsboy:

Jiko!!!!!! We had a dinner and was super! Yatchmana is good option too :)

Pygoplites 02-14-2013 08:33 AM

Jiko or Flying Fish if you're on a Dining Plan, especially if you can get a counter seat to watch the chefs in action (and you might get some extra attention, too).

If not on a DP, Bluezoo would be my first choice, I think it is the best restaurant in WDW that allows people under 10.

Yachtsman is just a mid-level steakhouse and while generally good, doesn't have much of a "foodie" appeal. Among the fine-dining steakhouses within WDW boundaries, I think Yachtsman is a somewhat distant third; Bull & Bear at the Waldorf Astoria being #1 by a large margin and Shula's at #2.

definitely yachtsman steakhouse!

CraigInPA 02-14-2013 11:20 AM

On a recent visit to Yachtsman, I began comparing it to Lone Star Steakhouse (a Darden chain steak house). Except for the 28 ounce Porterhouse, there's not much there that isn't on the Lone Star menu. The menu isn't "foodie", it's "steak house traditional".

If you're looking for "foodie", you'll want to go to Artist Point, Monsieur Paul, Jiko, or Victoria and Alberts (although, for the original poster, his brothers would not be permitted in V&A's due to their age).

I wonder how many of these recommendations are coming from people who have dined at Monsieur Paul. It's not stuffy at all; in fact it's rather casual (nothing like the old Bistro de Paris). And I must say that the steak I had here last month beat every steak I've ever had at Yachtsman (and there's been many). It's also the only the dining plan signature that serves and amuse bouche and let me say, those escargot in puff pasty were quite delicious.
