Yes, V&A is wonderful.

But, I would not expect them to turn water into wine!

Nor would I expect them to take a common mid-market California wine and turn it into something extraordinary.

When we stay GF RPC and are served a Fess Parker wine in the lounge, it's nice and we enjoy it. But, Fess Parker Riesling sells for $13 a bottle.

I expect higher quality and more expensive wines for my $70 wine pairing. If the waiter came to our Chef's Table with Fess Parker wines, we'd be disappointed.

However, I hope Israel is taking notes because inexpensive wines obviously please many V&A patrons.

I haven't seen this mentioned, but when I called the V&A line a few weeks back to ask some questions, they told me they have a new website. http://www.victoria-alberts.com/

I did notice that the menu listed has several alterations from the one I experienced in late March.

The menu changes regularly in that it tries to be as seasonal as possible. So if you go the same time every year things look similar. However, I've never had any course exactly the same twice, I've had different presentations of things, but never exactly the same.

We returned this last Friday from WDW and had dinner at Victoria and Alberts on Wednesday night. It was fabulous. Our bill was not cheap, but so worth it. I have to share that my husband could not decide on a dessert, so guess what he did. He ordered all six desserts. And yes after all that food. Our servers, said no problem and sure enough each dessert was delivered by a server at one time, laided it down on the table at one time and I was completely embarrassed - but they all loved that he did that. He ate all six desserts. And of course I helped, after I was no longer red in the face. We got a tour of the kitchen and were able to say our thank you to the chef. It was a great dining experience and would do it again in a heartbeat.

This is a great story!!! They must have LOVED that!!!!!! We've had the pleasure of dining there twice (once Chef's Table) and it's just the best place on property. So glad you had a great time!!

No, not really. They had a few seasonal add-ons, which were really good. But it was the basic menu from their website.

Yes, of course. But my DH didn't care. He's just that kind of guys, it was fun to do. And he eat every single one of them. Like I said our bill was not cheap even by Victoria & Alberts standards.

Question. Can you get a special dessert made? Such as a Croquembouche? For our 35th Wedding Anniversary.

Master Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek lovers challanges! Just request it in advance and it will show up. Of course, it will cost extra.
