Artist Point romantic?

I have a 7:10 ADR in Sept so it should be starting to get dark, does anyone find this restaurant romantic?

I have stayed at WL a few times but never been inside AP....thanks in advance.

Yes. Especially if you ask for a window table.

This exactly!

We celebrated our 10th anniversary with dinner at AP last year. We had a window seat and it was really pretty and very romantic!

Same. I was there with my DH on an anniversary trip and the service and food were just perfect. Lots of nice extras like complimentary champagne and a meant to take home.

I am afraid that I disagree, but it has been almost two years since I was there. However, in August 2011, I was there with my family. We were seated near the middle of the room, not ideal in any circumstance, but I distinctly remember thinking, "fine for a family dinner, but not a good place for a couple's dinner--too bright, too noisy and too big." Perhaps you could find some diners' pictures?

Your question got me thinking about this, so I looked at images.google and I think it gives a good indication of what I felt.

Exactly! Funny, my family and I ate there Dec 2010, sat in the middle of the room and I remember myself saying that I didn't think it was a great couples place due to the noise.

We went for our honeymoon last year. Quiet, excellent food, just A+ all around. Will be going back for our 1 year anniversary next month.

Yes. We thought the atmosphere was very nice and kind of quiet. The food was excellent as well.

If you want more privacy, take the last reservation time of the evening, that will make it more romantic that you have less people in the restaurant.

I took my wife there for Valentine's Day in 2011. We dropped the kids off at the Neverland Club. We sat outside overlooking the waterfall and it was very romantic and the food was really good too. I can't speak for the inside since all we did was walk through it.

I think it's hit or miss (like any restaurant in WDW). My first experience there was a table in the middle of the room, with an unhappy infant at the next table. Good food, but not really a "romantic" meal. The next visit was at a window table with unhappy children nearby. So in this way, it was a much more "adult" experience. I think if you get a window table, with good tables nearby, it could be a romantic experience.

The room is very bright when the sun is still up (one wall is pretty much just giant picture windows). As the sun sets, the colors in the restaurant changes because of the changing light. Once the sun sets, the restaurant is still well lit, but not overly-bright.
