I must agree with the post the said everyone has different taste, so ya never know what someone will love that the other person so didn't! Lol, but that being said we truly did not like, nor will return to 50's Prime Time. I know there are tons of people who love it, and we loved the decor and atmosphere, but I cook at home a lot (trying to save for that next Disney trip ! )- and I can honestly make everything we ate better at home! When we do Disney, we'd rather eat something somewhere that I don't cook at home!

For me it was Captain Jack's at Downtown Disney. Food was the worst among the TS's I had tried. Actually, now that I think of it, Tony's is a very close second.

The Wave.
First time we went there was nice, not great service, but okay.
The service on our second trip was so horrid, we will not return. 2 1/2 hours for a meal with no appetizers. Took forever to take our dessert orders and made us miss the fireworks from TOW. Thank goodness the kids were patient.

I was really disappointed in the Plaza Restaurant in the MK. I wouldn't go back again. I had the strawberry chicken salad. It wasn't anything special; the lettuce seemed like it had been taken from a bag and the chicken was dry and tough. The restaurant itself was chaotic and a little dirty, just stuff on the floor. There wasn't really any atmosphere in there either. I felt really rushed. Then I got the bill and found out my bagged lettuce salad was $13. I guess I hadn't really paid attention when I ordered it and that was my fault. It all just added up to a mediocre experience.

Good thing I read reviews and went with my gut & changed our reservations from here!!!!

BoardWalk Bakery

Mushy/soggy bread (tomato mozzarella sandwich), and mediocre croissants.

Sci-Fi.

I ordered the steak salad. The steak was BEYOND well done. It was CHARCOAL. I think they figured because it was dark, I wouldn't see the ash coating.

I have never, in my life, ever seen anything like it.

never can tell

as people's tastes/perceptions are so different. I love the Wave (both times), Chefs de France (3 times) and can't wait to return to Biergarten (sat with a lovely German couple last time who raved about the authentic food and gave great beer advice. We thanked them by giving them our Soarin' fastpasses. They were leaving in the very early AM and expressed disappointment at not managing to get on Soarin', and heck there was the good beer & all )

My probably not anytime soon:

Le Cellier - been there several times - good but not worth 2 TS and too much for lunch
Coral Reef - have had good meals here but not last time and the service for several trips has been way too rushed, finally told one waiter to back off (did say it nicely!)
Ohana - food was dropped haphazardly on the table & waiter did so at a dead run so no chance to ask for or about anything and I swore he was gonna kill someone with those skewers!

Truly never again:

Hollywood & Vine - found this place to be just vile - noisy dirty, totally unappetizing. Maybe if parents didn't let their kids behave like animals H & V wouldn't be so bad but until....

My list:

Never agains:

Planet Hollywood. We went there on our honeymoon and it was... not good. I could get a better burger at MickeyD's honestly.
50's Prime Time. Cold food, microwaved dessert, the only thing that was good about it was the root beer float.
Chef Mickey's. Slow characters, bland food, just ugh.
WCC. My fork was dirty. The waitress acted like it was a hassle to get me a new one.
ABC Commissary.

Would try again under other conditions:
Pecos Bill. Fries were dry. I would try it again though. It wasn't bad, just not great.
Le Cellier. I choked on a piece of steak and got sick on the table. I was having a bad IBS attack that trip and normally, that wouldn't happen.

I have only been to Disney World 2 times so I do not have much to go on but Whispering Canyon was awful! I would not eat there again.

I loved Jiko although it took about 2 1/2 hours to get through our meal. (just DH and I) Luckily we were in no hurry.

Our upcoming trip (for 6 adults) we have ADR's at Jiko, Akershus for lunch, Boma for dinner, Citricos and California Grill. I hope they are all ok. Reading threads like these always makes me rethink my whole plan

We'll never go back to Chef Mickey's. Messy, dirty, loud. Food not even that bad - but that atmosphere? No thanks. I'll go back to Kona and get some Tonga Toast

Will also probably never go back to Rose & Crown. After a wonderful dinner there on our honeymoon we were deeply disappointed a year later. You just never know. Of course they could have been having an off night - every place does - but there are so many other places to try, why waste the time?

Don't rethink ANYTHING on your list based on what others say!

For what it's worth, we enjoyed Boma - not enough to trek out to AKL to try it again, but it was a good meal. And Cali Grill? Forget about it - it's the one absolute must-do for every trip. The menu only sounds more complex than it is, but I have literally had the best meals of my life there. I HIGHLY recommend the pork tenderloin - best entree ever. And the sushi? Forget about it! SO good!!!

Sanaa. We ate here as our first night's dinner on our trip staying at AKL last week. Our sever was pretty bad. She basically handed us our menus and left, whereas she had a long conversation with the table next to us after she gave them their menus about what was good, what she recommended, etc. My BF is big on fish so he ordered the special, Alaskan something-or-other. Said his fish tasted frozen and way more fishy than it should have. He only ate a small amount of it. I ordered the "slow cooked" menu, and got the red curry chicken and beef short ribs. There were only about 5 small pieces of chicken and way too much sauce. Food came out slowly, took a long time to get refills, etc. However, the view of the animals was fantastic. We were right by a window, and had 4 giraffes come within feet of us while we were eating. Probably our only positive.
