We ate there in Nov and everyone (party of 4) enjoyed their food. I had the quinoa salad which was good and a strawberry cupcake I loved. The desserts are so fun! The croque Monsieur also got good reviews. At first I was disappointed we couldn't get a dinner reservation, but I was really happy with the lunch and didn't feel like I was missing anything. Have a great time!!

The lunch items we have tried are:

The steak sandwich- good, I agree with the pp who said the fries were just regular park fries, not the real pomme frites they serve with dinner (which are delicious!)

Quinoa salad- surprisingly good!

Quiche and salad- eh, the quiche was lacking in flavor I thought and the salad it was served with was underdressed.

Braised pork- delicious! The best dish we had.

Potato leek soup- pretty good

We tried all 3 flavors of cupcakes and I personally liked the lemon the best. I think the tartness of the lemon cut the sweetness of the cupcake perfectly. Dd1loved the chocolate the best (mostly because she can never eat Disney baked goods due to allergies but these she could eat!) DD2 liked the strawberry the best. Lol, go figure...

Was going to ask about the quiche, my plan next week is to actually have that for my late breakfast there and then a late lunch (at the Plaza). (I just really want to try BOG). DD is not a breakfast person at all so I figure she can have her bag of mini muffins, I'll have my oatmeal before we head to the park and we'll get in line at 10 something. How is the quiche served (with anything on the side?)

Ok and after I wrote this post I see a not so good review on the quiche any other opinions?

How long have you had to wait in line for lunch? I have an ADR for dinner in March, but we're on the dining plan, and right now, I have too many TS booked. I'd rather switch to going there for lunch, but I'm nervous about having to wait in line forever. I don't want to waste valuable park time doing that!!! I definitely want to eat at BOG though, one way or the other.

When we went last month we were almost at the end of the bridge and only waited about 20 minutes.

When in March? As the month goes on it will most likely get busier with Spring Breaks and Easter at the end of the month. Depending on the time of year you could see almost no waits to people lining up at 9AM for the 10:30 AM opening (yes, this did happen during the holiday season).

I would walk past about 9:30/9:45 and see what it looks like. Decide then if it is worth getting in line.

jwfla422, the quiche wasn't bad, it was just ok. It was the least favorite dish of the items we had. The crust was nice but overall just lacked flavor. I think it would have been better if the salad that was served with it had more dressing on it, it lacked dressing/flavor as well. It was my DD's dish and she is somewhat picky about quiche since we have a lovely little French bakery locally that makes delicious little quiches.
I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying it by any means, we just liked the other things we had much better.

When we went in November, we waited on line for 25 minutes. Beginning of January, 40 minutes
for lunch. We had a dinner reservation in January and waited 20 minutes after checking in.
We just look at waiting as part of the experience, like you would for an attraction. It's not just dining, it's an experience. It's worth waiting for to see it all.

We will be there the first week in March. Does the crowd thin for lunch at BOG toward mid-afternoon (e.g., 2:00 pm)? What time do they stop serving lunch?

Thanks

No need to get in line as early as I have seen some people do - unless you want to eat early.

We were there this past Sunday, supposedly a 6.0 day on the TouringPlans crowd calender. Went to lunch around 12:15 - the line was across the bridge and around the corner halfway to Gaston's fountain. CM was telling everyone it was a 90 minute wait at that point but we knew better and got in line. A 25, mebbe 30 minute wait tops and we were at the front door. Ordered and done eating another 30 minutes after that.

Just schedule a 60-70 minute lunch and you should be ok.

Also, you get your food very quickly after you order, so you are not waiting very long at all after you find a table. You pretty much are eating right after you get to order.

DH, DD, and I ate there in November. I had the Croque Monsieur and fries (which I split with DD- she is only 2 and wouldn't have eaten any of the kids' menu items). The sandwich was very good and large. There was more than enough to share with her. DH also had a couple of bites. The fries were normal park fries- good but nothing fancy. I also had the french onion soup. It was very good.

DH had the steak sandwich. It was very dry and not so good. He really didn't care for it. I took one bite and that was enough for me. We shared a strawberry cupcake and chocolate cream puff. The cupcake was really good the cream puff was ok.

We got in line at 11. It took about 20 min. to get through the line. It was at the end of the bridge when we got in line. Our food was served very quickly after we ate.

We'll be there March 1-7. The resort rates increase March 8, so I'm hoping we're beating most of the spring break crowds. fingers crossed!

Do you get the full experience at lunch that you would get at dinner? I mean, is the whole restaurant open so you can see everything? Aside from different food, and a server to take your order, what is the difference?
