Aritst point

We will be in Disney December 9th and that night exactly will be our 3 year anniversary, The first trip I ever went to Disney we stayed at the Wilderness Lodge and ate at the Artist Point, and that was in 2007 we have not ate there since on our trips and I was wondering in your opinion do you feel this restraunt has changed over the past seven years?

1) The atmosphere hasn't changed at all.
2) However the food is HIGHLY improved.
3) AP used to be on are A-List, then it fell off due to poor quality.
4) Three years ago, there was a major effort to upgrade food/service.
5) Now, it is just one of the five TS eateries we patronize at WDW!

************************************************** ***

Our Ratings of Artist Point: (*rev 1/21/2014*)
. . . food price value: B
. . . food quality: B
. . . food quantity per serving: B
. . . food prep speed: C
. . . food selection: B
. . . seating quantity: B
. . . seating comfort: A
. . . eatery atmosphere: B
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: A
. . . staff attentiveness: B
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE1: Artist Point has lately made several changes to revive the old quality of the food
and service, and regained the reputation of the past. It has now replaced Monsiuer Paul on
our TS list, and we only eat at five of them. If you eat there, get a window table. The view
of courtyard and lake are grand and romantic at sunset and after dark. Buffalo and chicken
were VERY good and worth all the talk. (Just make sure they cook buffalo rare or med-rare.
Any more, send it back! It will be tough and tasteless!)

NOTE2: As with eateries, they do some things better than others. In that light, skip the
Prawn/Crab Pot and skip the Scallops. They are basically average and not worth the time
or expense. The carpaccio is subpar without enough fat marbling to make it taste as good
as Beef Carpaccio. The filet and the lasagna are good, but pedestrian, so also skip those.
The other side of the scale has the tasty King Salmon. For a heavenly treat, do the highly
prized Copper River Salmon which available only during mid-May to early-June, with a side
of Mushroom Soup.

Artist Point is a pretty good restaurant! I would say for me it ranks about 10 out of all of the WDW restaurants!

Service is Very good
Atmosphere is really lacking for me... Its alright not changed so if you liked it in 07 you'd like it now if you didn't then you won't haha

Food is pretty good:

Portobello Soup is phenomenal truly outstanding!
Filet is above average not great but not bad
Cobbler is very good I enjoyed it quite a bit

Good Luck and I hope you enjoy it!

We went to Artist Point for the first time in December 2010 so I can't compare it to other years, but we loved it. The atmosphere was great and the food was amazing. We had the filet and salmon and both were awesome. Artist Point is now one of our favorites and we can't wait to go back.

As Rusty said, AP had some quality issues a few years ago, but they seem to have taken strides to remedy those drawbacks. Part of our issue with AP came when they attempted to meld Asian-fusion style dishes and sides with their traditional Northwest menu, and it simply didn't work. That experiment has disappeared, and once again they seem to be focusing on the foods that helped build their reputation in the first place. Service was an issue for a time, too, as we experienced two bad services out of three relatively back-to-back-to-back visits. For our last three visits, however, the service has been more up to the standard AP for which was once universally touted. As for the ambience, it's one of our favorite places to dine with its panoramic windows, lovely murals, and the inviting decor. Further, once finished dining, WL is a wonderfully romantic resort around which to stroll and soak up the sights, sounds, and smells. Go and enjoy!
