Can I just say, this is one of THE BEST dining reviews I've read !! You are like "The Review Master" !!!

You had alot of reviews of restaurants that we might want to try for our next trip, so it was really nice to read your reviews. It was so fantastically layed out!! Thanks for posting this !!!

Waited about 20-30 minutes to be seated and that was fine. The restaurant staff tried to keep everyone waited occupied with trivia questions and a few little things for children. We would have been happy to wait outside but it was cold. When we were leaving, people said they were waiting an hour, one guy was stretched out on the floor. It is a small waiting area inside. I don't think Le Cellier is worth all the praise it gets. It sure isn't worth 2 dining plan credits or signature status unless they are doing a complete makeover. There's no way Le Cellier, as is, can compare with places like Flying Fish Cafe or Citricos. Total = $120 (or 1 DDP credit per person) not including tip for 2 adults and 1 child.

The pretzel bread was good but nothing to go crazy about. It's soft pretzel bread. I had DS get the cheese soup for his appetizer so I could try it. They said it's the same as the adult cheese soup (does it really have beer in it?). It didn't look appetizing or taste good either, plain and tasteless. Not even worth dipping the bread in it as some suggest. I didn't like the mussels either. They were small and had a strange taste -- the chef explained that it has pernod (spelling?) which has a strong taste like black licorice. DW wasn't impressed with the crab corn custard appetizer, neither was I.... oh boy.... bad start.

Our steaks were cooked right and wonderful. DW liked the filet and I agree it was delicious. My NY Strip was very good. But, I have to say...it was just a good steak. The NY strip steak at Coral Reef was just as good. And the steaks at the signature restaurants were definitely better. So, if you're looking for a decent steak, Le Cellier has it... but it's nothing to go crazy about... I've had better at other restaurants (at home) for much less $$$.

Now, the chocolate whiskey cake was VERY good. One of the better desserts I had this trip. DW had the chocolate "Moose" which was cute, I guess. DS liked some of his sundae. If the ice cream looks funny, it's because is Tofutti (non-dairy ice cream).
I totally agree with you about Le Cellier, every word!!! Its too overhyped. I didnt find the bread or soup fantastic at all. It was just 'meh'. And the steak was a steak. Nothing special. Definitely not worth 2 dining credits at dinner!
Love your reviews!

I'll be honest... I like a really good steak... but it just doesn't excite me. It's like eating something as plain as a hamburger. We might have lucked out but Le Cellier was enjoyable... wait was bearable.... while waiting, the host did some fun moose things with DS... service was good, the chef checked on us... steak was good. I'm not sure I could rave about steak... and I've had some good steak. But cook me up a good seafood dish or something creative, that's different. If the food is boring... I'd rather have some excitement/entertainment! like belly dancing at Marrakesh!

Good luck on getting your ADR... I'm surprised it's still hard with dinner being 2 credits. Probably makes lunch harder than ever to get.

Great review - so useful and excellent that it is all together at the start

I liked Le Cellier but wouldn't put it in my top 10, however my fiance who is a vegetarian would put it in his top 3! He loved the gnocchi and they have removed it from the Signature dinner menu but kept it at lunch which is great for us - only 1TS

We have DxDDP for 21 days on our next trip and I think we have most of those that you reviewed booked in apart from Coral Reef and 50's Prime Time so it should be good

I think it was just a bad day. And I was upset about the wait too. Management handling of it was not good. We should have left and di es somewhere else. Hot dogs would have been fine at that point. BUT, our 1st experience at Ohana in 2009 was great!

Best Review Ever!! I really enjoyed reading your comments! I have a few of your restaurants reserved for our trip in Sept. We have never used any dining plan and are looking forward to using the Deluxe dining this trip. Your breakdown of prices and savings is very encouraging. We have all signature dinners and either a breakfast or lunch reserved each day!!

Again, thank you for taking the time for this wonderful, concise review!!

I just stumbled across this wonderful thread and I wanted to say I thought you set your reviews out perfectly. Lots of thought went into your reviews and I loved the costings at the end, definitely lots of food for thought. We have done the regular dining plan before and whilst we love love love eating at nice restaurants we had wondered whether the deluxe plan was overkill for us. Your information has given me lots of food for thought.

Thank you for spending the time.
