What fantastic pictures, they are beautiful.

I have a bit of a strange thank you too! We were considering the CG for our wedding meal but after seeing it in more detail it really isn't our type of food or style. The restaurant looks very nice, but I don't think we would enjoy the food. Definitely one to cross off our list of potential venues.

Portion Size Estimates

I think the portions are fairly large - I can never eat a whole entree myself. I always count help from teen sons!

But, remember, size here is relative. The server can be more helpful by inquiring with the kitchen as to actual ounces - or show dimensions with hand gestures.

We are having our Vow Renewal (35 yrs) dinner in the Sonoma Room at the CG August 27, 2007. There is 16 of us and we have the room from 6:30 PM to 10:30 PM. I can't wait. We go to WDW about 3 times a year as DVC Members, but have not been to the CG. It was one of the few places you could pick for a private room. We knew the reputation of the restaurant and felt the splurge was appropriate to celebrate our big day. The pix look great and make me glad we chose it.

Thanks for the pics. This too is one of our favorite places to eat. We always make our arrival day place to eat for dinner and enjoy the fireworks. This just sets the magical tone for our stay.

ehagerty, good morning.
If you mind me asking, what do you usually have to drink with your meals at CG? sake with sushi or something else ? Appreciate much if you share your preference.

I usually share one glass of house white (usually chardonnay) and /or one of house red (usually carbernet) - pretty much at any meal, unless the server recommends something else.

I have not acquired a taste for saki - may be next time!

Chef Jens is a fabulous chef but it's almost impossible to get a recipe out of him

My 79-year-old mother and I loved the Blueberry Blast - Blueberry Tart with Almond Crumble, Ice cream, etc. and the Honey Crunch Cake at the California Grill. I figured the restaurant was too busy during working hours to provide a recipe so have written them and phoned them about 4 times since coming back home - with no luck at all

If any members can get their hands on this recipe I would be extremely grateful because I'd like to make it for Mom's 80th birthday at the end of August.

The changing light of sundown.....

Some of us have mentioned that we enjoy timing our reservation so that we can experience a changing view while dining - as opposed to timing the reservation to occur during Wishes.

A sampling of the changing view as the sun goes down....

From the balcony, looking east.....








From within the restaurant.....

























































From the balcony (I think), looking west








And, while we are on the topic of sunsets, here is one - not from CG - but just walking around DTD:
