We are very picky too. 2 of us had steak w/o the butter sauce and fries. Can't get much more simple than that. It was good.

We ate there last week for dinner and thought it was the best meal of the trip. Service, food and atmosphere were all great! I had the salmon, DD had the shrimp/scallops, and DM had the steak. All delicious.

The "grey stuff" was brought out for DD's bday. We loved everything about the place. It's really breathtaking.

We went for lunch and dinner the 2nd week of Dec.
At lunch all 3 rooms were open. I assume because of the popularity of the restaurant.
Food and service were good not wonderful but good. Just the line getting in there was long.

For dinner 2 rooms were open, the west wing and ballroom.
Food was good (seasoned fries was CRAZY salty tho, I had to send it in and get an unseasoned one), we had the salmon, hen and kids pasta.
All were good.
Service was kinda slow but understandable with the level of crowd they were having.
We requested the West wing for dinner at the podium and they were able to accommodate us.

Disgusting?

We ate there twice a couple weeks ago - as most have reported, it was absolutely delicious, and the ambiance beyond what you could ever imagine at Disney - we'll be back at least twice a trip (already scheduled for Apr. '13).

Ate lunch there on the 18th (all three rooms open) and dinner on 21st (ballroom). We would both 100% recommend lunch over dinner.

We thought lunch was great. We split the onion soup, the steak sandwich, turkey sandwich, and a lemon cupcake. The soup and sandwiches were all very good and the cupcake was wonderful. Lines were long however so go early; we lined up at 11:00 and ordered by 11:25.

Dinner was ok at best. We both had the steak and Outback's steak is better. We liked the butter on the steak. One of us had mashed potatoes instead of the fries and they were TERRIBLE. We also had the potato soup (very good), the strawberry cupcake (excellent) and chocolate cream puff (just ok).

Since what we liked best at dinner (soup and cupcake) you can get at lunch, we cancelled our February dinner reservation and just will have lunch again.

As for the character at dinner, Beast was announced and walked through ballroom at 6 pm and then you could take pictures with him after dinner in the study.

We ate lunch there during the previews. We loved going during lunch since you could choose which room to eat. The food was ok, but nothing special. For us, it was more about the experience than the food, so we didn't care. The lunch prices are very reasonable and selection good for even picky eaters. We would do lunch again and eat the rosé gallery. The rose gallery was our favorite room (more to look at) and its only open for lunch.

We ate both lunch and dinner there a couple weeks ago.

I really enjoyed the dinner experience much more. Lunch felt like a cattle call, with people squeezed in everywhere. Dinner felt much more relaxed and allowed a better chance to just relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

I had tried to get an ADR for Christmas Day but not managed to. On Christmas Eve I decided to go for lunch while I was standing next to the podium a couple asked about walk ins he said come back after 3:45 as there is often space because of no shows that got me thinking. So I went and had lunch enjoyed it and left. Christmas Day I had an early lunch and at 5pm went back to ask bout the chance of a walk in I GOT IN. So that was lunch and dinner I bog yesterday!,,

I just made an ADR for the end of May for dinner, checked all three days we are there and only found a 4:35 PM for dinner.

It looks like 180 days is the way to try and get a reservation here!

We did both Lunch and Dinner. Lunch was definitely better for us. We ate in the Rose room and everyone enjoyed it. I found that dinner was not as enjoyable. We were in the ballroom which was very noisy. The food was lukewarm and just 'ok'. Maybe because it was out of pocket, I was expecting better. We went back a few days later for lunch and was able to try the last room in the castle and once again, enjoyed it.

Bottom line, I prefer lunch over dinner.
