Best upscale restaurant?
Ok experts. I need opinions on what you think the best upscale restaurant is at Disney, (anywhere on property). Trying to make reservations for February for our 10th anniversary, and I want something special.

I'm really leaning towards a "Chef experience" like Flying Fish or Jiko... only ones I can think of. But if you guys think that's overrated and that there are better options, I want to hear that too!

10 years... want it to be nice. Thanks!!!

Victoria & Albert's

Yes Victoria and Alberts is the nicest however it is quite pricy...

Both Flying Fish and Jiko are great options too :thumbsup2

As the PP said, the "best" (or at least most universally agreed upon "best" here on the Disboard) is Victoria and Albert. It's also the most expensive places to eat.

Of the two you mentioned, I really like Jiko. Both are good, but Jiko has the edge. I haven't tried the Chef's Experience at FF, but the food at Jiko was very good. It has low lighting and deep earth tones, so it can be "romantic". Flying Fish is very vibrant. Either way, both are good choices.

V&A by far.

If you're looking for something a little less "extremely upscale," and a little more regular fine dining, I would say Jiko for sure. We love it there! :thumbsup2

V&A is definitely the best. And the regular dining room option is reasonably priced for the 6 courses. If you can get the Chef's Table, that would be a night to remember.

Although I enjoy FF, I wouldn't call it upscale. Jiko has a more elegant feel to it. I would pick the type of cuisine you want. Out of Disney's signatures I think Citricos feels the most upscale and has the best overall menu. Overall, bluezoo would be my top choice outside of V&A but fish is what I enjoy eating most.

Victoria and Alberts. My DH and I are celebrating our 15th anniversary and my 40th there at the Chef's Table in December.

Another Victoria and Albert's fan here...just celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary here last night. In my thread I just gave the details of our experience... I say save up and go! Absolutely worth every penny!

I'm going to go a different way and say Artist Point. Have eaten there several times and never had a bad meal

California Grill, the food was great and the view is amazing especially if you're there during the fire works. Also it just had a total makeover.

I've been to California Grill, Yachtsman, Jiko, Narcoossee's.

Of those, I would rank them in order of favorite to least:

1) CG
2) Narcoossee's
3) Yachtsman
4) Jiko
