Kouzzina for dinner- Reviews?? Pics??

So, we've never been to the Boardwalk and want to try something new and Kouzzina had openings. Couldn't find many reviews or pics for their dinner. Anybody have anything??

We went there last Oct. Loved dinner so much, we went back for breakfast a couple of days later! Here are some links:

I say - Try it! It's only one meal. If you don't like it, then you don't go back. As for me, I'll definitely be back!

Our Ratings of Kouzzina (dinner): (rev 4/5/2012)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: D
. . . food quantity per serving: B
. . . food prep speed: C
. . . food selection: C
. . . seating quantity: B
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: D
. . . eatery convenience: C
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: D
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: The food, although named "Greek" resembled Greek in name only.
Very, very Americanized. My $32-steak was dry and her $27-lamb was
overcooked. Both had to be sent back to the kitchen. The daughter had
the sampler. Pretty small, 6-7 bites for the three items. Poor room design
makes terrible/horrible acoustics, making it one of the noisiest eateries in
WDW, worse than Chef Mickey’s on a bad day. As many people have offered,
the service is VERY spotty. We waited 19-minutes to see the waiter AFTER
being seated (seated at 5:54pm, waiter at 6:13pm). If anything, go for the
breakfast and have dinner elsewhere.

THINK: For breakfast it's the grapes . . . For dinner it's the pits.

(I guess when you get to be a famous chef, you don't care about your
restaurant, as long as the bucks flow in - or it seems that way.)

I could not disagree more with this review. We absolutely loved our dinner at a Kouzzina and it has become a must-do for us. It is now in our top 5 (along with Kona Cafe, Via Napoli, Sanaa and The Plaza).

I had the trio (more than enough food for one person), DH had the lamb and DD had the Fisherman's Stew. Everything was perfectly cooked and our server was attentive (but not overly so) and friendly. We can't wait to go back in two weeks.

While we've only had breakfast there. We did enjoy it enough to go a second time and will go back on our next trip. The food and service were both very good.

I thought it was decent. Everyone else in my party disliked the place strongly

While I hold RustyScuppers's opinion in the highest regard, I have to disagree with him on this one. My visit to Kouzzina was awesome and I have ADRs for our upcoming trip.

Everything we ordered was delicious. I don't even like brussel sprouts and I couldn't get enough of them at Kouzzina! My friend and I split the fish of the day and the serving was so large that the two of us couldn't finish it. I can't comment on dessert since we had no room left to try it.

The service was a little slow to start, but I just think the waitress was taking her cues from us. We were relaxing and enjoying our cocktails. I find it is usually the opposite problem at WDW, the service is very rushed.

I recommend Kouzzina to everyone.

Oh, forgot to add... it is kind of noisy in there - there are a lot of hard surfaces, not much fabric, and an open kitchen.

However, I find Chef Mickey's to be WAY worse. While I think there are several reasons to avoid CM, the noise is at the top of the list. My visit to Kouzzina didn't come close to that kind of noise.

It's funny, the restaurant is essentially the same as it was when it was Spoodle's - I think even the chairs are the same. However, my memories of Spoodles are louder. Perhaps it is because the food wasn't as good then?!
