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!

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?

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.

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

Both Jiko and AP are fine choices. Each offers quality food and sights to see before and after you eat. The Lodge is an especially good place to walk around after dark as you can wander to the beach (they have movie nights there), watch some of Wishes (the higher explosions), and see the EWP. Your sibs might also enjoy watching the geyser blow. Enjoy!

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.
Funny you post this comparison. My wife and I are big fans of YSH. We were also big fans of BdP and tried Monsieur Paul (MP) last week with some trepidation. We really enjoyed our meal at MP and felt that the restaurant had retained all its charm and elegance from the BdP incarnation. We did not think MP felt more casual than BdP at all. To us it had the same refined atmosphere.

As far as the comparison with YSH goes we both tried the steak at MP and really enjoyed it. But we didn't think it was as good as the YSH filet.

Just our opinion...

I think Jiko and Artist Point are perfect- my two favorite signatures besides Cali Grill! And I love that they're both are unique, beautiful resorts so it turns it into a whole activity.

To everyone who suggested Yachtsman- is that just because of the title? Based on what the OP actually wrote- I can't see Yachtsman being a big foodie 'must do'!

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.
