1) There are good and bad things about *most* eateries.
2) So, one needs to look at several aspects when rating/reviewing.
3) We rate Ohana as below.

************************************************** **

Our Ratings of Ohana (Dinner): (7/15/2012)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: D
. . . food quantity per serving: A
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: B
. . . seating quantity: B
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: C
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: D
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE1: Used to be highly rated. However, the food quality has severely
deteriorated over the past year. Additionally, the service is very spotty.
For food quality and service, select another restaurant. As a side, unless
you knew it was supposed to be Polynesian, you would never has guessed.
The kids might have fun at the eatery, but it certainly is not on our list
of eateries. It's too loud, it's too lax in service, it's too low in food quality.
That's too bad.

NOTE2: Ohana has a character breakfast with LILO and Stitch, and with a
photo-op for Mickey and Pluto. It's about $25/adult and about $15/child,
so it is not unreasonable at WDW for scrambled eggs, potatoes, pastries,
sausage links, bacon, waffles, and fruit. All-in-all, not a bad deal or choice.

We ate there last Tuesday and there were potstickers and all the usual food.
We love it there. Have been at least 8 times.
This is the first time we had bad service though......it was so slow. It was just our server, maybe new, but it was painful.
We ran into a family from another table and they complained too.

But we will go back every trip.

Interestingly enough, after reading others' descriptions of breakfast, I'm thinking that we did not get all of the food offerings we were supposed to get. What we did receive, was pretty pathetic, to say the least It wasn't that the food was bad at all, it's just that for the price it didn't seem like we got much at all

We were there a little over a week ago and we had pot stickers.

We thought Ohana was good. I agree with PPs, everything was fresh and cooked well. We would definitely go there again.

I still love 'Ohanas! We have a tradition of eating there on our first night of the trip. You just cannot get more Disney than 'Ohanas! I love the food, mostly because of the dipping sauces, yum. The one thing that bugs me is that they skimp on the portion sizes of the meat. They act like they are doing you a huge favor by giving you more than 2 pieces at a time. Service is so-so, but food is worth it!

This year we are trying Be Our Guest for the first night, but going to Ohanas for the second night.

We ate there last month and had a great meal. We had a perfect table in front of the windows which I was never able to get before. Watched fireworks from the halloween party and also had great service. I don't think there was anything that disappointed us. Is it gourmet food? Absolutely not but everything was fresh and hot. Re do look forward to eating there because it wouldn't be a Disney trip without out.

It's the only WDW restaurant that we decided to eat at twice during our 10 day trip last month if that says anything.....

We think it's great!

Just ate there tonight (11/10) and must say, we had a great time. Our server was very nice and attentive to our needs. Childrens entertainment too. The food was excellent - beef was perfect, not rubbery at all. Chicken was very tender and marinated well. Pork and shrimp were spot on, too. I'd guess that some would say we were lucky, but it was definitely a great experience, and we'd definitely do it again!

We ate there in September. DH loved it. I did not.

For starters, I could do without the parade of cranky children that lined up twice while we were there for the race. We were apparently seated alongside the racetrack. Really disruptive with kids falling over my feet and whining, crying and screaming for a variety of reasons.

The food was hot, fresh and plentiful...I just didn't like it. The sweet marinade they use on everything made me want to gag. I don't do sweet when it comes to meat. I prefer savory. The broccoli couldn't have been more boring. The noodles were meh, and unfortunately also sweet, as was the bread. I thought the potstickers were okay (a bit over cooked). Dessert was okay. Nothing to rave about.

DH however LOVED the flavors of everything.

Service was GREAT. Very attentive server. Quick refills. Everything we could have hoped for.

I loved Ohana until Wed nite! Never had a bad meal or service until Wed! And it all hit the fan!!! We were seated at 8:30. A little late but I expected it because of wishes. NBD. We get the bread and wait. Finally Tiffany comes with the salad and gets our drinks. We wait and wait. DH goes to the rest room and tells me not to eat all the wings. Lol. Not to worry when he got back we still didn't get them. So I use the rest room with the same warning. Again no wings. Finally they come. Along with potstickers and cold noodles. We didn't care the noodles were cold because we were saving up for all the meats! We sat again for a long time. The wings and potstickers were gone so I ate more salad
The chicken comes out and we each got 1 piece. And he walked away. After another wait out came shrimp. I don't eat shrimp so I told my 'cousin' to give DH mine. He got about 10. He didn't remember he had to peel them . His 2nd one was so salty he spit it into his napkin and was done with shrimp!!. Finally the pork came. They have changed it which I knew about but this was something I almost spit onto my plate. Ididn't like it at all. He ate some but only because he was hungry. Tiffany comes to see if we were ready for dessert. I tell her we haven't even had any steak yet! She gets a skewer and I ask for more well done. She drops 2 hershey kiss sized pieces on my plate and a couple pieces on Pauls plate. Mine were good but tint. His first piece was good but the 2nd was grizzly. She brings the dessert which was good but by now it is 10:10! We just wanted to leave!! $72 for 2 people ( we were on the ddp) this was the worst dinner of my life never mind WDW!
Wont be back any time soon. Too bad because the 4-5 times I have been before were great! Sorry it is so long but I had to vent!!
