We (I) contemplated going back for our 40th anniversary, but my inner cheapscate won out and we ended up not doing anything
Time to go again! We almost didn't do anything this year. I literally booked this meal the night before.

It'll be worth it though! I think it'd be so fun to have a group of friends at the Chef's table!

Hopefully I just have to work extra hours to do it! It is just my hubby and I so not a whole group.

Okay.. not to hijack but.... I know your sister! We met up at Disneyland and we both booked Crystal Palace for October 14th before park opening!! Totally ironic we did that too!

Wow, I didn't realize how long it'd been since I updated! I'll post more today! This new job training is intense! I only get one day off at a time, and am expected to do "homework" on my days off. Phew! Glad to have a good job though!

more bread porn

This is a multi grain bread with rye seeds in it. Normally, DH doesn't like breads like this, but he RAVED about it!


I have to admit, it was quite good!

Let's get to the meat of this meal...

Australian Kobe-Style (kobe style? I just got that. Either it is or it isn't, right? Or can you only have Kobe in Japan? Kind of like champagne vs sparkling wine?)

Australian Kobe-Style Beef Tenderloin with Smoked Garlic-Potato Puree


From another angle:


The meat on top of the potatoes (I think) was shredded meat from a short rib. HEAVEN. BBQ flavor WITH potatoes?! I die.

I was getting really full by this point, so I gave probably half of my meat to Kyle. I know, poor guy, right? But it was good. I'm not always a steak fan, it's too tough for me, but this was awesome! Super tender, rich, flavorful. Yum.

Kyle had the Niman Ranch Lamb with Baby Tomatoes, Artichokes, & Olive Pesto:

I'm not normally a fan of lamb, but this was to die for. I mean, I would order this myself. It wasn't gamey at all! Usually, when I eat lamb, it tastes like it's growing wool in my mouth. It was really, really good. I recommend it to anyone!

Next course...

We had the choice of a cheese plate or white chocolate gelato. We both chose the cheese:





Blue cheese, which was good, but VERY rich





Our favorites were the gouda & the cheddar.

Last but not least:

We both agreed to coffee to go with dessert. The coffee was fine, but the percolator was cool:


Next was dessert. This is a most unfortunate course. By this point we were STUFFED, but agreed to try dessert. We weren't disappointed.

Caramelized Banana Gateau




Dude. What the...? How did I live all of my life without this? Seriously. I love bananas. The filling was wonderful. Not too sweet. OMG. Can I go back just for this?

Kyle had the Hawaiian Kona Chocolate Souffle






He said it was very good. I didn't want to waste what tiny space I had left on that, so I didn't try it, but he polished off a good portion of it.

And when we thought we couldn't fit in any more food, they brought us this:


I only tried one thing, and while it was delicious, I was almost in a drunken food-haze. That and it was after 11:30 at that point.

They finished the evening by giving me a rose & us a mini loaf of orange-date bread, which we tried the next morning for breakfast.

I highly recommend V&As!

I will die with cheese in my veins. When some archaeologist digs me up in 3000 years, they'll be like "What on earth is this that is filling this woman's veins?! Cheddar?!!!"

Yeah, the cheese was good. And honey with gouda?

SOLD!!!!!

Seriously, through the years I had no desire to dine here. But, now, the kids are grown, my palate has matured a bit and I'm ready to pack a dress.

Thank you for the fantastic, detailed and entertaining review!

I love that I found this thread! I was doing a quick search on the Dis because DH and I will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary with a trip to V&A!

Your reviews totally sold me on the fact that I've made the right choice! And I love that valet parking is included - it really is a hike from self-parking!
