There are far better places to eat in epcot...Tutto, Via, Chefs/France. For good steak in the epcot area, I heard Shula's is the place to be. Its at the swan/dolphin. I havent tried it yet thou, but im hoping to on my next trip!
I happen to Love Le Cellier and the cheese soup but admittedly on a visit had my BIL get a very grizzly steak. So that makes me torn for sure. Decided to forgo it this year and try Turf Club

Kinda leaning this way! Split a meal at Teppan Edo then headed for soup and dessert at Le Cellier!

LC is delicious. Tutto, IMO, is overrated. Their lasagna tastes like a frozen lean cuisine meal...

I beg to differ. Have you even tried their lasagna? Its delish!

Im glad you think LC is wonderful. I respectfully disagree. Its highly overrated.

How about this, you go to LC and i'll go to Tutto. We're both happy!

I have tried it. My mom ordered it on the last trip and I tried some. We both agreed that it was awful. But we're from Chicago with some terrific italian food.

Regardless, LC's steaks and cheese soup are delicious. Everyone who has ever gone their and eaten has loved it.

OP here, wasn't intending to start yet another Le Cellier debate. :-) but i think I've found something that will be a great compromise for my family!

I was just there two weeks ago. Good food as always, but honestly WAY overpriced whether you are paying out of pocket or using dining plan.

Truthfully, I'm not sure if I really enjoyed my meal much more than I do on an average trip to outback streakhouse for almost 1/4 of the entree price, plus soup (something like $44 for the steak and $9 for a little bowl of soup).

I know they supposed use the "finest Canadian meat", but I dunno..

Im half italian and think the lasagna is great. But to each their own.

As a pp indicated, LC is very much like outback. Disappointing steak quality. And i think the soup at biergarten is way better than LC.

LC didnt do a few things right...fine CDN meat my bazooka! And the poutine is a joke.

I'd go California Grill instead but it's under rehab during my trip.... Thoughts? Suggestions?
We really enjoy Le Cellier but the overnight price increase is a joke! Coral Reef is a neat place to eat at Epcot. Check out their menu.

Does biegarten have a cheese soup too? I may just have to do a taste test! :-)

Well I dont think its a cheese soup but they have a cream of cauliflower soup (or was it cream of potato and leak?) That was simply outstanding!!!!! So much better than LC IMO.

It seems most of the negative reviews for LC are from people who haven't even tried the current menu. Many people are just looking at prices online, then posting negative reviews based on that. We haven't been in a long time, but we'll go to try the new menu.

If you go to Trip Advisor and look at Orlando Restaurants, there are 1,633 total. Le Celier is ranked #122 which puts it in the top 8% of all Orlando Restaurants. Clearly the sample size dictates it is a fabulous restaurant despite what a few picky eaters might post.

I HAVE tried it recently and it was awful! If you can chew tough meat and digest charcoal, then go ahead and pay $44 to do so. I won't again.
