I'm trying to get a LC reservation for our upcoming trip and haven't snagged one yet. So we've made a reservation at The Yachtsman. I've eaten at LC and I had a good experience plus the menu is more my style with cheddar soup and poutine fries! I have not eaten at The Yachtsman but have heard good things so I'm not upset if I don't get LC...at least I'll be able to compare!

Frank, yes we used the restaurant .com coupons in Shula's at WDW. I am not sure if they still accept them, as my experience was a year or 2 ago.

I'll definitely come back to this thread and give an update

Our trip is Jan 29 - Feb 2, with the Yachtsman being our dinner ADR on Feb 2. I'm still going to try to switch to LC but if it doesn't happen then I'll come back with my 2-cents!

neither...both highly overpriced and not exceptionally well prepared.

If have to choose - go with yachtsman. Quality appears to be better - they just can't seem to cook a good slab.

We love the Yachtsman, we had lunch and dinner at Le Cellier, before it changed over to 2TS, and honestly, I don't think it is worth the 2. At 1 it is great.But for 2, it is ok, not bad, not fabulous. Now, I also live 20 minutes outside NYC and have some of the best steakhouses readily available to us anytime, so we are picky when it comes to our steak. The Yachtsman, is kid friendly to us, never had an issue with that or dress. We are trying Le Cell again this trip because we have the credits to use so we will see.

I have always enjoyed the Yachtsman and if LC doesn't work out I'm sure you will like it.

We've been to both. Yachtsman would get our vote.

We used to eat at LeCellier on every trip, but after 2 not so great meals there, we stopped going. That was 3 years ago and from what I've heard, things haven't improved. Since both LeCellier & Yachtsman are 2 DDP credits, definitely go to Yachtsman.

I haven't eaten at Yachtsman yet, but I have dined at Le Cellier and have no interest in going back. The food was decent enough, but I can't justify the cost. I can get better steaks here in Texas with no problem. The soup, pretzel bread, and maple creme brulee were all very good, but I can get a very similar soup (just missing the bacon) and unlimited pretzel bread at Biergarten. And, while I can't get maple creme brulee just anywhere, I can get regular creme brulee just about anywhere and a fantastic raspberry creme brulee 20 minutes from my house. Our waitress the last time we dined there was the rudest waitress I have ever encountered at Disney which also really detracted from our experience. The tables are much too close together, as well.

Basically, I find Le Cellier to be overpriced, overcrowded, and over-hyped for what you end up getting.

Definitely Yachtsman. Le Cellier was okay, but the food, service and atmosphere were much better at Yachtsman. Le Cellier food was just okay and the place is loud and crowded. Even my DH commented that we were packed in there like sardines, and he rarely complains when you are feeding him!

I'm back!! Athough I'm not going to be much help with comparing Yachtsman and LC...we ended up getting a LC reservation by luck. I walked up and they said they had no openings (I thought I'd try) and several other people were also getting turned away. Then as I was about to walk out I heard two women saying they were going to cancel. I asked the hostess if I could have their reservation if they cancelled and she said yes. They ended up cancelling and we got a table!

I will say that the cheese soup, pretzel bread, and filet were amazing! I eat a lot of steak and I know there are a lot of LC haters but my filet was a good size and melted like butter. It was cooked perfectly.

I will admit that I ate at LC 2 years ago and had a NY strip and it wasn't anything spectacular. However, I liked the rest of my meal and I was with my parents who both got the filet and said it was the best steak they ever had. Again, we're a big steak eating family and my dad never things a steak is as good as he can cook so that's a huge compliment from him. I really wanted a a reservation there this trip.

From the many people I asked the consensus seemed to be that the filet at LC is good but other cuts are not so good...at least that's a common comment I got from about 5 CMs that I talked to about the difference.

As a side note, I don't like mushrooms so got the cheesy scallop potatoes and they were delicious!!

Overall it was a great meal. I know every restaurant has it's faults and tastes are subjective but my DH and I both really enjoyed our meal and the service was fabulous as well.

We've done LeCellier a number of times, the last being in 2011. We did Yachtsman for the first time this past December. We will NEVER go back for LeCellier (unless we just go for soup and bread). Our meal in 2011 was terrible; Yachtsman was out of this world and near perfect.

It is great to hear the good reviews for Yachtsman. We have ate at Le Cellier many times because DH loves it. But I have never been fond of Le Cellier.

We are trying Yachtsman for the first time in June.

We ate at both, a few days apart on our last trip. We both enjoyed the Yachtsman much more than LC. Our food was better, and the service and atmosphere were better for us.
