It kind of makes me a little bummed we are doing breakfast there and not dinner.....
I know! When BOG's kids menu came out with new and unusual findings people complained after years of complaints that the menus were all the same and generic kids food

All of the entrees sound good, and honestly, aren't that exotic. I'm sure you'd be able to request a different side to go with your chicken, fish, pork, etc. or go to town on the bread service.

Did you look at Akershus as an alternative?

Some parts of the menu

appeal to me and some don't. Chefs tend to go wtih trendy items rather than what main stream likes. If they offer substitutions that makes it easier to taper to indivudual tastes. I had them serve me 'root' vegetables at Captains Grille. They were harder than raw carrots and not at all appetizing. I just ate around them.

Personally if we don't like the menu we don't book an ADR. My wife is a meat and taters person and would not be happy if I took her there.

You can't control a menu change that happens after you book your ADR but you can change venues.

I'm sorry you are disappointed.

However, I think the menu looks great!

Yep. They can't make everyone happy. Either you like the food or you don't. It all looks pretty good to me! If nothing appeals to you either change to breakfast if you can, or look into Akershus. You would probably end up eating breakfast there too, because their lunch/dinner menu is Norwegian food.

Ok, I had to go peek at the old menu. And guess what? It was beef, fish, pork (sound familiar?) chicken, and pasta. The same 4 proteins that they had before. Not sure why the new menu is so offensive when it is the same meat/fish, changed around a bit.

I wouldn't eat any of those choices either and for sure DS10 wouldn't especially at those prices.

DD8 will have to settle for breakfast in the castle or Akershus for her princess meal or just meeting them in the parks.

I agree with you - NOTHING on that menu would even be interested in eating!

We used to love lunch there.. the Major Domo's Favorite Pie.
then in July of '11 went in for our ADR, sat down - it was OFF the menu, as of just few days prior. We left the restaurant... (they didn't charge us). Manager seemed shocked actually that someone would LEAVE CRT. nope. Nothing for us to eat to make it worth the money, that's for sure. Had been there many times in past, so really, seeing the princesses or experiencing the castle was not our #1 reason being there - we were there for our Major Domo's Favorite Pie

But with those prices, yes, I wouldn't eat with current menu either. NOt worth it just to pick at something you don't like.

Awww... no love for mon petit chou. Maybe the little cabbages would feel more at home in France with Belle but I'd be willing to bet they can sub the side.

Very true..blame it on the current bacon fixation that seems to have gripped the world.

it's not the same. there is no pasta. And since 2 people in my party don't eat meat or fish- I would like more than one choice. People who eat meat have 5 choices.

Could you call and ask for an vegetarian option? Don't most restaurants offer that, outside of the menu? Most restaurants are geared towards meat or fish eaters, right? That doesn't make CRT any different than the majority of Disney restaurants. Do they not have the chef come out and talk to vegetarians as they do people with food allergies?
