Except for the monorail part, this was our experience there in April
Also did not enjoy being herded like cattle before being seated
We went on the recommendation of our daughter and her boyfriend who loved it. We did not

1900 Park Fare for dinner was waaaaaayyyy over priced for not so great food. We liked other character buffets better, and they all cost less. The Drizella character was a bright spot though.

And the most dissappointing was Yachtsmen Steakhouse. Horrible service, steak that was requested medium came out raw... twice, and the waiter tried to overcharge us by $50! It was also our only date night and we made babysitting arrangements for the kids so I was really looking forward to it .

I don't regret going to any restaurant in Disney, though some meals have been better than others. How will you know if you like a restaurant (or not) if you don't try it out for yourself? Disney restaurants, like may others have good and bad days. Also, tastes and preferences are very subjective.

Jiko. While it was a disappointment like many WDW restaurants it was the cost that made it a never do again. Seriously we spent over $100 for the two of us to get steaks so hard and dry I was sawing at it to cut it.

Just remembered two more:

GF Cafe - it was terrible and waitress gave somebody that shouldn't be drinking an alcoholic beverage a drink with alcohol (we ordered a virgin drink).

Kona (for dinner) - while Kona is very good for breakfast, the dinner was truly awful.

Restaurant Marrakesh wins the top honors for restaurants we would never return to. The food was horrible - no seasoning at all on mine and I could hardly chew the meat. We barely touched the food and after we left, we went to the france bakery and grabbed some food for dinner.

The dancer was out for about 15 minutes, 10 of which was spent trying to get peoples kids on the stage, another 5 dancing with them and then she was gone.

Very disappointing since I booked the meal for DH to see the Belly Dancer and he didn't really get to see her dance.

Good thing we didn't book the Coral Reef for our upcoming HM!

I would say our least favorite meals were Crystal Palace at dinner. We've had great experiences at lunch and breakfast, but the food at dinner was pretty awful.
Other than that, Mama Melrose. The food was pretty good, but we had to wait over 30 minutes for our ADR because they double booked reservations (at least that's what they told us). Who does that, especially on a holiday weekend?

O/T but...

They also couldn't make any of the salads without the meat. And they also didn't have veggie burgers. So my only option was the veggie sandwich which I really didn't want.

When we went to Disney a couple weeks ago, my friends really wanted to go to the ESPN Club. I really didn't want to go since I knew I had to have the veggie sandwich which I really didn't like the last time. But I ended up giving in and figured I could always pick up something afterwards somewhere else. Anyways, we were a group of 6 adults and a 2 year old. We told them we were a group of 7. When they called our name to be seated, they pointed to 2 tables of 4. We were like "ummm, what's this all about?" They told us we had to sit at separate tables. We told them that we wanted to sit together and they told us we couldn't. I don't understand why they wouldn't ask us ahead of time if we didn't mind being separated. They just assumed we wouldn't mind sitting at separate tables. And then when we asked if we could at least push the two tables together, they said we couldn't because both tables had separate servers. So we spent that meal with girls sitting at one table and boys sitting at the other. It was so dumb. I think I'm done with that place.

Sorry, just had to say your dog is gorgeous!

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