We had dinner there last month and I would say do it! Of course, you will get mixed reviews but my DH and I thought the meal was great! I had the steak and DH had the lamb (which they had literally just put on the menu the day before) and neither one of us had any complains- I actually thought the steak I had was one of the best from our stay (the garlic butter on it is awesome). Dessert was yummy too.... especially the grey stuff! If anything, the atmosphere is so neat... just like you're in the castle. I would say try it once.

We also had an excellent dinner in May! We are looking forward to another dinner and a lunch in Nov. We had the French onion soup, meat platter app, steak and pork chop. Our dd had the chicken with macaroni and broccoli. We each had a cupcake or cream puff for dessert and a bottle of wine for us adults. It was lovely!

I would say do it. I'm so glad that we did. The experience is amazing. The food was about what we had at other places. We were not blown away buy the food but am very glad we did it simply for the experience. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to do it again but would be super sad if we had missed it. I think everyone should try it once. Hope you have a great trip.

We went last year and loved it. Lots to see and we thought the food was great start to finish.

We had reservations our first night 9/9. It was fantastic! It was our favorite meal by far. Two people had the steak and I tried a bite. It was very good...nice char on the outside and very moist. Another had the pork chop. Again very moist and great flavor. I had french onion to start, I will admit I have had better but am spoiled as I worked in a fine dining restaurant that has the best french onion hands down. I had the salmon. It was nicely seasoned and cooked perfectly. Not dry at all and the saffron potatoes were wonderful.

I am not a dessert fan... enjoy apps better. So I cannot give any reviews on that.

I would not cancel the reservation. We also did 1900 for dinner and it was OK. Food was typical buffet. BOG is worth at least one trip!

We quite liked the food there. But we didn't order all that much. DH and I each had a salad and then a soup. DH ordered the french onion and I had the potato leek. Absolutely delicious to our tastes. And we ordered the right soups because the french onion wasn't something I adored, and my soup wasn't something DH adored.

DS had the pasta with marinara and was OK with it, then I had him take an "adventure bite" of my soup and it was all over. He needed his own bowl and wouldn't touch the pasta after that. It was pretty cool.

We'd eat there again and eat those same foods again (not the kid's meal though) in a heartbeat.

(it was our intention to try the vegetarian entree but we just weren't THAT hungry and really really wanted the soups because it's rare to have those two soups be vegetarian! we want to encourage such things)

(oh and our server was awesome, because she explained that a proper french onion like they have takes a long time to prepare, to get the full onion flavor...that using a beef stock like many do is actually a shortcut (I'd say "cheating") when you don't want to put in the time...and that's why their soup is SO good, because it's done right...although it wasn't to my taste (should note that I'd never had french onion soup before) I agreed 100%)

We were there the 2nd night it was open in November and have an ADR for next week. Several of my family had steak and I had roast game hen. I think DSIL had a pork chop. Not sure. It was very good. The atmosphere is part of the experience and one of the reasons we're going back. A new favorite. I recommend it.

Go for the atmosphere.

The food is okay, but the service is terrible and very, very rushed at dinner.
Lunch is a much better value and experience.

Really hate to say it, but we had dinner here during our Aug. trip and it was rather disappointing.

We waited for about 10mins and our beeper went off. They took it from us, escorted us through the gates right in front of the castle, and told us to wait for our name to be called. We waited 20 more mins as other families were called ahead of us who arrived at the gates after us. Finally my husband asked, and they said we had been 'beeped' accidentally. After another 5 mins someone did call us and brought us in.

We were in the room with the music box. Everything was very rushed. I have to say, I was surprised that our server was also bussing her tables, this is not something you typically see at a nice restaurant. The food was good, not great. My daughters were celebrating their birthday (twins) and got the Grey Stuff, which was in fact delicious. When asked if we wanted dessert, we said yes. Our server brought over the cart without bothering to clear away the dirty dishes. We chose a few cupcakes to share, which she placed on the table with one fork per cupcake, and no clean dishes...and that was it. We did the best we could with all of our dirty dinner dishes in the way.

We did go visit the ballroom, which was beautiful, and then the West Wing, which is where I had hoped we'd eat. As it turns out, it's probably better we didn't get that room as there were so many people in there just checking things out. Some of the diners looked rather uncomfortable with so many strangers standing over them!

We didn't get to see the Beast. He was not in his 'chambers' when we were leaving.

Did I enjoy it? Yes, but I expected much, much better. Will I do it again anytime soon? Probably not.

We had dinner there in May and had a great time. I had the steak, my son had the pork chop and his girlfriend had Cornish hen. All of our food was delicious as well as the desserts. We even had the grey stuff as we were celebrating my birthday.
We did not feel rushed at all and our waitress was really great. We were seated right next to the window in the main ballroom so we could see the snow fall out the window. The room is gorgeous.
After we were done eating we looked around and then went into the library for our meet and greet with the Beast and had our pictures taken.
We will definitely try for ADRs again the next trip.

We had dinner there (on our Anniversary) and really enjoyed it. We sat in the ballroom directly under the large chandelier, which is beautiful. Our server was great and the food was very good. I had the salmon and while it wasn't to die for or anything it was cooked perfectly and the leek fondue and saffron potatoes were excellent. Dh had the steak, dd had the chicken and my youngest ds had the kid's fish meal (mahi-mahi), and my other ds just had the macaroni. It wasn't the best meal we ever had, but it was good and we loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. Even my older ds, who is so not into Disney anything, couldn't help but feel the magic in there

We've eaten at BOG twice (most recently last Saturday) and have had fantastic meals both times. We were seated in the ballroom twice and it's gorgeous. We found the food to be great too and we've already got reservations again for our trip in March!
