That's great to hear that you had such a wonderful meal at Kona! Perhaps I will give it a second chance. I recently read that the Michelin guide tests every restaurant at least seven times before they decide to change the number of stars they give it. So I guess, I should give the dish at least a second chance, even though I can't see me trying it seven times if I don't like it by the third time!!

DH & I had the Tuna Oscar two years ago and it was our worst meal of the trip. That was the second year in a row that KONA disappointed us. There's TOO many other restaurants for us to try before we'd go back there.

Enjoying your review. I just jumped in today.

Mara is by far one of my favorite places, but I do not like the Zebra Domes either.

I love reading reviews of restaurants that I enjoy! I am looking forward to your next set of reviews. I really wish Artists Point still had that Buffalo entrée - I would be there for sure!

We really enjoyed Kona this January, but I think it has a very limited menu. I think I have now eaten everything I like there and think I need to try something new.

I really love reading reviews in order to get an impression as to which dishes I would enjox, too. So I am glad I could help you out!

The salad was really glad. Unfortunately I was not able to get it again this January (never had lunch at DHS), another reason for a return trip to WDW!

Sharing appetizers or entrees is a great way to try different things. No server ever dissapproved of it. But we generally tip a bit more if we share (and of course the service was good).

The drink was great! It was like a dessert without making you even more full!

Mara seems to get mixed reviews here on the boards, but I really like it, too. I think it already looks so cool! Good to know, that I am not alone noot liking Zebra Domes!

The steak was really great. Unfortunately the menu at AP really does not look very appealing to me now. I still would like to eat there again, the soup was really great and the venison spring rolls sound intriguing. Perhaps I could make a meal out of appetizers there...
