Looking for Disneyland restaurant recommendations

We are at Disneyland and I'm looking for your favorite restaurants. We have already done Cafe Orleans, Steakhouse 55, and Carthay Circle. Any must do places?

On a less fancy scale we really like the Plaza Inn and the Riverbelle Terrace (breakfast).

I think our favorites were Carnation Cafe, Naples in DTD and Wine Country Trattoria. We did breakfast at Flo's and have to admit we were not all that impressed.

I like the French Market (counter service) for lunch. Big Thunder Ranch BBQ is good for a casual, messy, and filling meal. I also liked the Blue Bayou, both in terms of food and atmosphere.

We love the Blue Bayou. It's overpriced for the food you get, but you are mainly paying for the atmoshpere. I've probably eaten there about 10 times in my life and have only had the Monte Cristo sandwich which tells you how much I love that sandwich.

One of the best meals I've ever had (not just at DLR, but anywhere) was at the Napa Rose at the GCH. It's a little out of my price ranges (someone else was buying when we went), but if you want a high quality meal, eat at the Napa Rose.

Great suggestions all. Thanks! We're taking a break now at the hotel because the parks are getting crazy crowded. I'll read the menus for your suggestions and let you know what we decided to do

Also, Earl of Sandwich, SO GOOD!!! My husband and I split the club and my daughter had the kids menu pizza sandwich. One of the best!

I enjoyed Flo's for dinner. It was nice to have a real meal that didn't include greasy fries and burgers.

I think French Market in DL and Flo's in DCA are 2 of the best in-park dinner experiences for sitting down with real plates and utensils and a meal that isn't fast-foodish while also not having to go the full table service route. I must admit though I'm not a big fan of most of the in-park table service options anyway.

Carnation Cafe for breakfast. The atmosphere is wonderful, right on Main Street with all the red and white striped umbrellas. The restaurant is table service, but it's really not expensive at all. Oh and it's delicious! if you like pancakes, try the apple granola pancakes. Gooooooood!!
