Remy - palo question

I am sure this question has been asked before, but I really would like to know if Remy is worth the up charge and what do you think is better, brunch or dinner?
I have been to both at Palo and loved both experiences. Is the brunch at Remy similar to Palo in the way it is a buffet?
Thank you so much for any information!

We thought the Remy dinner was worth the upcharge. The meal is at least 3 hours long, there are extra courses not listed on the menu and the service is amazing. We had reservations at 6 and were seated by a window, it was wonderful watching the sun set over the ocean.

We haven't had the opportunity to experience the Remy brunch, it wasn't being offered yet on our cruise in April.

We still love the Palo brunch.

Remy lunch is not a buffet. You would not get as many courses as at dinner. The food is comparable but there's a set menu. Ask about substitutions if you want them.
Yes it's worth the upcharge (in my opinion).

"Worth it" is a personal issue. If you like fine dining, then it's a good deal. If you're not into food or feel intimidated by the matre d', then maybe you'd rather spend your money elsewhere.

Thank you! I enjoy fine dining and LOVE great food. I was impressed with Palo and just was curious if Remy is that much better. I know Palo is Italian and Remy is French. I wonder why the difference in price.
Does anyone prefer one over the other and for what reasons?

Palo is rather like any of the WDW signature restaurants at WDW or a good restaurant at home--good food and service, some place I could see going occasionally. Price...depending on the location, maybe up to $100 per person.

Remy is comparable to Victoria and Albert at WDW--serious fine dining, the kind of place I wouldn't do on any sort of regular basis. A real treat. Cost starts at about $150 per person at land locations.

We have never done the High Tea on the ship and were looking forward to doing it at Palo but they canceled them so we "begrudgingly" booked the Palo brunch and, boy, were we glad we did! With all the choices and the selections of little desserts so you could sample as many as you wanted, we kind of made our own little tea party. When our server heard about our disappointment with the cancellation of tea, he made sure to keep our hot tea coming! We were so pleasantly surprised that we intend to do Palo brunch and try it for dinner as well next time. Can't help you with Remy as we didn't go there, but from looking at the menu choices, I don't think it will be as good as Palo in my family's opinion.

For comparison purposes, it costs $125 per person to dine at Victoria and Albert's at the Grand Floridian, and it's the same chef as Remy. And there are upcharges on that menu as well.

I believe the $75 per person upcharge is well worth it if you enjoy fine dining. We loved Remy and V&A's. Can't wait to go again in January on the Fantasy. And I highly recommend the wine pairing to go with it. Adds so much to the experience.

How much wine do you get (roughly) for the extra $99.? Is it as least a bottle - 750 ml? I hope so, cause at that price I am expecting a good buzz. What about the wine pairing experience makes it so worth it. I think I am sold on this, but not exacly sure?

If I go for the wine pairing, what do I budget for 2 people? $75+$75+$99+$99+($50-$75tip) = $400-$425?
