What restaurants do you regret eating at?

And why?

for us Hollywood and Vine (nuff said)

Also, while I loooove POP's food court, I had the nastiest Mediterranean flatbread thing there. I ended up throwing it out. It was all greek olives and no chicken. Blech.

Coral Reef Restaurant: We were seated in a table furthest away from the aquarium in some ridiculous booth setup where you share a split table with strangers. Everyone was uncomfortable, the food was not good, the restaurant was noisy, and it seemed like it was our servers first night (he was flustered and had trouble getting orders and remembering things like drink refills).

It wasn't all bad, the dessert there was good.

Crystal Palace, food was yucky, characters didn't interact much, server was very slow at one point I think he forgot us.

I would agree with this I found the food in Crystal Palace to be just gross. It had that cheesy vegas buffet about it, except its not free. The character there look like they were in a magic marker fight its where the tired Char Costumes come to die an undignified death of smashed food sticky fingers and dirty marker gloves.

My opinion matches your opinion. But I did like walking through the park before it opened.

We liked the characters here but I have to agree about the food. Worst food I have had at Disney.

Coral Reef, by far. Don't let the ambience fool you, the food was terrible. With the exception of the lobster bisque, its awesome - but I think its the same bisque they serve all over the world.

Oh goodness, this is going to be like watching a train wreck happen, you can't help but watch! What if one of the restaurants I booked ADR's shows up, do I switch? So I will just have to stand by & hope none of the restaurants I have chosen from our upcomning trip shows up.

I think my memory blanks out the bad meals so I have nothing helpful to contribute!

Don't change any reservations! Everyone's taste is different and a bad server can be just someone having an off night.

I will agree with Coral Reef, however. We have eaten there several times and the first couple were great, but the last two were not! Service was horrible. We don't have an objection to the food there or the ambiance.

Also, we didn't care for Yak and Yeti. We ate there just after the TS opened up and did not like the food. Not saying it wasn't prepared correctly, but just didn't care for the taste. The service and ambiance were both terrific though.

agree on this....i ate at California Grill once and won't go back- i just thought the price i paid was not equal to the value i received in return- i don't mind paying high prices just as long as i feel i got my money's worth....

there are many who love Cali Grill and that's fine but i agree w/disneychic; find out for yourself....

I agree with this. Everyone is different. Hubby and I sometimes have differing opinions about restaurants too (in the World or outside of it). It reminds me of the movies....one person loves a movie and another thinks it was horrible.

I don't regret dining at any of them. Food is something too trivial to have regret over. However, there are restaurants I do not care for that I would never visit again.

For example:
Hollywood and Vine
Chef Mickey's
Coral Reef

We had the SAME experience there last week. YUUUUCCCCKKKKKY! We were seated furthest away from the aquarium. Our server was horrible and our steak tasted like it had been boiled or something. I was VERY disappointed.

My Chocolate Wave dessert was REALLY good....... but it didn't make up for everything else!

Tusker House, circa 2006. Everything looked gross, still tried a chicken salad and the chicken looked undercooked and was on the slimy side.

Though it didn't make us sick (didn't eat much of it) it still very easily sets off my gag reflex just thinking about it!

I know it's a completely different place now that supposedly has an awesome breakfast, memories and olefactory recall have prevented me from going back. bleeacchhh.

We didnt like the food at CRT breakfast so we havent been back in years, but I have a feeling when my DS4 finds out you can eat there, he will want to try it out. It was horrible 5 years ago when we went and my DD5 at the time, who has no allergies, spent the whole time sneezing and watery eyes. Cleared up soon after we left there. No clue what it was from!

I am upset to see so many Chef Mickey's on the list. We have that planned for breakfast in December after not being there for a few years.
