We have really enjoyed many of the other Disney signatures. I guess I am a little intimidated by the menu perhaps. This one was my mothers pick (they are meeting us for 2 days of our trip). Hopefully we'll be pleasantly surprised.
In case it will reassure you, I have an 11-year-old who is a decent eater, but not the most adventurous (Jiko was definitely across the line for her ). Artist Point was her very favorite restaurant of our December trip. She has requested that we ALWAYS go there. I have to say, I loved it as well. Plus we had a truly excellent server.

Of all my posts, a majority are probably me recommending AP. While I thought the mushroom soup was only okay (and don't order the "cannoli") everything else is a 10! The swordfish, salmon (and I hate all other salmon), cobbler...last time I told our server if I had a last meal I would want the pork belly appetizer (drool), the scallops, and the cobbler and I'd want him to serve it to me. Of all the places I've eaten anywhere, ever, my 2 experiences rate 1st and 3rd. Just excellent!

Artist Point is a wonderful restaurant, with some fantastic cocktails too (I highly recommend the Washington Apple), but if you don't feel like the full on restaurant whilst you're visiting the Lodge the bar is just wonderful - Territory Lounge.

They do a range of snacks that for me are portion enough for a good evening meal. When we were last there in November they had truffle fries that were just delicious and went with the heavenly fondu perfectly... or just stop by for a pre / post dinner cocktail (they make all the AP drinks, so you can order that Washington Apple here too). Its one of my favourite places in my favourite resort.

One question nagged at the very fiber of my being: Was it okay to lick the bowl?

........Exaggeration? Not really.


Yeah... been there... that soup is almost a religious experience

LumosQ102 -- A Washington Apple is just Crown Royal, Sour Apple Liqueur, and cranberry juice. No need to hold out for Disney, you can make them at home (or order them at any restaurant).

I enjoyed it. I'm not really the fancy eating-type, but the bison that I had when I went was very good. The flavors of everything on the plate just worked together so well.

In my opinion, the desserts are really nothing to write home about, but that's not why I choose restaurants anyway

Thank you very much Its not one we've come across before (must not have made it over the pond, we certainly like to experiment with our cocktails...), but delighted we can recreate at home. Yum.
