I wanted an ADR for several reasons.

Based on pictures the theming looks amazing. As Beauty and the Beast fans, the restaurant is an attraction in itself. I know we could see it for lunch, but I didn't want to waste prime AM touring time waiting in line for lunch. My kids are young and we have to eat at peak lunch times. That's when they're hungry. With adults, it's easier to manipulate meal times.

I did manage to get an ADR (on the early side, but early we can do - late is an issue) and I'm thrilled.

Interestingly I had one of the best and most knowledgable waiters I've had in 8 Disney trips at BOG. He was fabulous. The food was good. Not fabulous, but I don't go to a theme park for fabulous food.
The ambiance and theming are out of this world. Disney did it right with this one and we were very very impressed. It is just beautiful.
I felt like a little kid walking into that castle and wondering what waited around every corner. That's a feeling that you don't get too often as a grown up. It was delightful.

. Absolutely agree! Dinner was okay...lunch was special.

The restaurant is a must see. People differ on the food. But we were lucky enough to get lunch at a soft opening in Nov. We had a late breakfast and weren't planning on lunch. I wasn't even hungry but we had to try it! DH and I split a steak sandwich, fries and a chocolate cupcake. It was very good. IDK about french food but this was pretty much steak, bread and fries. We also were lucky enough to get a dinner ressie for Dec. 2 of us got the,steak and pomme frittes. The fries were differant than at lunch. More like a thicker steak fry. at lunch they were your typical Disney fries. The steak was steak. Cooked just as we ordered. DDIL got the ratatoulle. She liked it but wasnt in love with it. Again the chocolate cupcake was,TDF! The chocolate cream puff was a little soggy. DDIL was celebrating her birthday and got the GreyStuff. It was,a tiny dollup but very good. DS and DDIL both tried a beer. Those were the only really 'French' things we noticed!

we went over spring break... Our food was the best meal we had that week... and a lot less expensive than the buffets!! (I had steak. not really French food. )


the theming was great too!! I loved watching it snow while we were eating dinner. the Beast was available for photos too.

the 5 of us all agreed we want to go back again for dinner! lunch is our goal for this summer.

Wow, thank you for all the replies!! I am not a hard one to convice to do things and you have all convinced me to try getting an ADR at BOG.

I LOVE the movie and so do my kids. I didn't realize there was a meet and greet with the Beast. That's pretty cool.

I should really look at the menu in more detail. We are definitely not a family who is going to WDW for the food so we aren't bothered if the food isn't fantastic, I just didn't know if there would be anything on the menu that we'd like. I'll go check it out.

We will be trying for a dinnertime ADR. I thought I read that there are 3 different areas to eat in. Is this true? Do you specify on your reservation?

Thanks again!

We went for both Lunch and dinner. The food is nice, not particularly French, more of a French theme. The lunch is great value and is quite similar to dinner menu (desserts are exactly the same).

I imagine just because its a new experience the demand will be greater. x

This is exactly how I felt!

DS11 loved it, too! We were both so excited to eat there! We had great service and thought the food (dinner) was very good. We're going again for dinner in August, when DH can join us. I think we might try a lunch, too!

There are three dining rooms, the Ballroom, the West Wing and the Rose Gallery. The Rose Gallery is not always open for dinner. I had dinner there in January and the Rose Gallery was closed off to the public. Apparently at dinner you are not able to request a certain room. We didn't request, they just put us in the ballroom.

At lunch all three dining rooms are open and you can pick which one you sit in. West Wing is the smallest room and doesn't seem to have any small tables. While the Rose Gallery is decorated in a rose motif, the Enchanted Rose itself is in the West Wing.

I think it was just the entire experience that made us like it so much. I think it would be a must for every trip we make now. Just sitting in the ballroom was amazing and we got to walk around after our meal, to the west wing and see the magic rose, then we got to go into the study and get our picture taken with the Beast in front of the fireplace. The food was not french at all and was quite normal dishes but quite delicious and I really enjoyed the strawberry cupcake for dessert. Belle is next door at Enchanted Tales with Belle which is a must see attraction if Beauty and the Beast is your favourite movie. I would say don't miss Be Our Guest. It is a wonderful experience.

We ate there this past Sat night. It honestly was one of the best meals we had at Disney. (I was VERY under-whelmed by just about all of our food this trip). I enjoyed the mussels and potato leek soup. DH got the steak. Kids got the chicken with pasta & veggies. It was probably the best food we had all week at Disney restaurant. And to top it off, cost about $50 less than the character meals!
