There in lies the problem! I voted the same. Narcoosee's is expensive, our first occasion dining there, it was very good, but the last time, not as good and more expensive! Bluezoo has replaced a few of the old (stale) favorites. Jiko I do like but I prefer Sanaa at this point if in AKV!

I would drop Narcoossee's. We have eaten there twice and both times have had mediocre service and mediocre food. The view is nice, but I would definitely not consider it to be in the same league as the other WDW signature restaurants. I think it has a lot of draw for people on the DDP because it is so expensive, so it is popular, but I would not choose to eat there again with so many other wonderful restaurants to choose from.

I would drop Yachtsman. We've given it a chance several times and every time was a new low. Service and food. Boring atmosphere too.

On the other hand, we love Narcoossees. My lobster has never been bad there, and service has never been bad either.

I agree that your location might be something to take into account. For example, if you had to be in the Yachtsman area but needed another choice (and were already doing Flying Fish another night) I would add Blue Zoo. The cantonese lobster dish there is so good! Great atmosphere too.

I'd drop Narcoosee. It was ok, and the view was fun, but I grew up on the water so am a seafood snob. Also, Yachtsman is a nice steakhouse but nothing you can't get at any suburban steakhouse. All depends on what you're looking for. For us, we'll travel a loooong way to get a special meal. The person saying they won't travel an extra 10 minutes to get to Artist's Point is really missing something special. But to each her own

I love FF and AP...two of my favorite restaurants. I have yet to have a bad experience at either one...not even a mediocre one!!!
I didn't care for most of my Jiko meal...loved the flatbreads and the desserts, but the entrees left me cold.
I have yet to eat at either of the GF choices.
CG is too trendy for me...dh loves it there though. I just don't care for it.
And Yachtsman??? I've eaten there several times.....I keep trying it since so many love it there. Not a great experience at any meal there. Twice my beef was not done correctly!! We had iffy servers, the atmosphere was barely ok, but that could have been where we were seated. Just won't ever go back there.

I voted for Flying Fish over Narcoosee's for one reason only. THE FOOD

Narcoossee's was not getting any love here. I thought it was great.

Flying Fish was terrible from the food to the service just not very DISNEYESQUE.

IDK i guess they all have bad days but there is my 2 cents

I voted to drop AP. Weve eaten there several times and were never really impressed.

Our favorite is Flying Fish were we have always had excellent service and food.

That's been my experience, too. I gave it 3 tries so it wasn't just an off night.

I would drop Flying Fish. It can be a trek to get there and the food was not that great.
