We jut had lunch there on Tuesday, 1/22 and paid OOP. DH and I both had the cheese soup -it was good, but I found it to be much saltier than the last time we ate there in 2011. DH and DS1 had the strip steak and they both really enjoyed them - they were cooked perfectly. I had the filet with mushroom risotto and truffle butter sauce, and it was delicious, as usual. They did put a ton of sauce on it, but I just scraped some to the side and was fine. DS2 had the kids steak and he loved it. We didn't get dessert because we were very full. DH and I each had a Moosehead beer and that's always yummy. And of course, the pretzel bread was awesome, and we liked the other two breads as well.

They did take the burger off the menu - we asked the waiter, and he said they do not serve them anymore. The lunch menu is now the exact same as the dinner menu, no more prix fixe option. We loved the light-up menus! I also didn't think the tables were as crowded together as they were before... maybe it was just where we were. We also had an excellent waiter and the meal was nicely paced.

Now that we've been there twice, I think we will try something new like the Yachtsman just for a different experience... but I would go back again some day.

DH and I had lunch there in October and it was as wonderful as we remembered from past visits. We both had the filet, which was well seasoned, perfectly cooked and cut-it-with-your-fork tender. We had excellent service and an overall great experience. We'll return for sure!

It's been years since we've eaten here and I think I have sticker shock from seeing the menu prices! I'm not one to shy away from an expensive meal necessarily, but $43 for the 8oz filet? Is it really worth twice as much as a similar filet that you can choose on your own at Texas Roadhouse?? I recall liking Le Cellier a decade ago, but I'm sure the prices weren't as expensive at the time

Now for my specific question...does anyone know if they will prepare the filet to your specifications? Specifically without the mushroom risotto sauce? Neither of us like fungus...

I believe they will. My dh doesn't like mushrooms and as of a few years ago, they gave him mashed. I have never encountered a side substitution problem at Disney!

Agree. Been there 4 times and have never gotten the mushrooms. Was just there in December and got my filet with nothing again. They did give me potatoes.
