Help! What are the BEST, NON-CHARACTER table service restaurants???

My parents and 19 year old sister are going with us on our trip, so we're trying to cater to everyone, not just the kids. We already have our favorite character meals picked out, we just need a few non character restaurants. I would love your opinions! Thanks so much!

With little kids, we love 'Ohana, Via Napoli, Les Chefs de France and Biergarten. Our favorite "dining experience" for a family is Hoop Dee Doo Revue. Have a great trip!

Editing to add Sanaa and either restaurant in Mexico (San Angel Inn or La Hacienda). And though I'm not a huge fan, my family loves 50's Prime Time Cafe.

Big fans of the Wave (at the CR) for both breakfast and dinner. One of these days we will try lunch there.

Ohana is great! I could go without the noodles (ick) but everything else is delicious and the service is always great!

Be Our Guest for dinner for sure!!!!

Also, we really enjoyed the Rainforest Cafe at the Animal Kingdom.

Out of our 7 different table service meals, these two were definitely our favourite.

We did Les Chefs de Frances in Epcot but really wasn't all that impressed with the food, considering the fact that it had such wonderful reviews.

Boma is one of my very favorite restaurants in all of Disney! Liberty Tree Tavern is another one of my favs too.

I know Coral Reef often gets bad reviews, but I've never had a bad meal there. And the atmosphere is great for adults and kids alike!

'Ohana is a great family experience as is T.Rex
WPE and WP
Y&Y
We love having the last reservation at Le Cellier to linger over some lovely Scotch and a relaxed meal
`and I adore their chese tray.
Boma is also a really fun, eclectic dinner we love

It's been a long time since we've had a Disney trip, but one restaurant we look forward to visiting again someday is Raglan Road. There wasn't a bad dish served, the service was great, and the boys really enjoyed the music and dancing.
