1) We prefer
. . . fine food
. . . excellent, top notch service
. . . innovative dishes with flair and quality
. . . overall great value
. . . relaxed and soothing dining atmosphere
. . . behaved and somewhat quiet patrons

2) The only sit-down restaurants we patronize at WDW are
. . . Artist Point
. . . Citricos
. . . Il Mulino
. . . Sanaa
. . . Shula's Steakhouse

NOTE: Bistro de Paris used to be on the list. But, they changed
there service level, started to cater to kiddies, and downscaled
some food items (such as snails). It became an overpriced, noisy,
averageeatery. Fortunately, Artist Point has made one HUGE
comeback in quality and service (to the "old days" of the 90's)
replaced Bistro for us; AP had gone downhill severely, but has
made an nice about-turn.

1. The quick service in Morocco in EPCOT (I can't remember the name) - we always go to EPCOT right after check in (we stay at YC) and this is our first stop. We usually share the chicken/platter.

2. Sci Fi - more for the atmosphere and the milkshakes. Have had the ribs, chicken sandwich and the burgers, everything is good.

3. Le Celler - i love steak, the filet is the best.

4. The Garden Grill - I know that some may consider this buffet as its all you can eat, but the food there has always been wonderful.

5. Yachtsman - I had the filet here as well and it was great.

these are not in any order, just my must do places

1- Yachtsmen Steakhouse- Beat salad, truffle mac and cheese

2- Flying Fish- DH swears by the filet, and I like the often changing vegetarian choices

3- Sanaa - Curry, "homemade" naan

4-Narcoosoosee's - lobster

5- Victoria and Albert's - everything, and a chef willing to adapt meaty dishes for me

#1 believe it or not, Wolfgang Puck Express (marketplace). They consistently have phenominal food each and every time. Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and onion straws/onion rings, spagetti & meatballs, pizza, and the cheesecake (creme brulee topping) are all mouth watering FANTASTIC. My fave was the meatloaf!

The rest, in no particular order:

- Cali Grill: Delish flat bread, heavenly steak. Desserts that will take you to another level. So good.

- Via Napoli: Hands down the best pizza in disney. The riccotta fritters for dessert are fantastic.

- Tutto Italia: The best pasta! Lasagna and fetuccini in cream sauce with pancetta were both amazing. Tiramisu was great too.

- Chefs/France: Apps were amazing. We had the cheese board and salad with warm goat cheese. OMG good. My main was the beef short ribs (basically a very lean soft piece of meat) in some kind of sauce which tasted amazing....came with fetuccini style noodles. Really good. I was worried the meat would be fatty but it was very lean and boneless! My son had the 1/2 roast chicken and loved it. The potatoes were amazing! Creme brulee for dessert was the winner, i liked it better than the profiteroles.
