Adult evening without the kids...where to go?

So, we've decided on an adults evening out...
We'd like it to include a decent meal and a few drinks with some atmosphere..

Where would you go?

We have a ressie for Le Cellier for dinner but it conflicts with another appt that kids have with BBB.

Is Le Cellier worth it? Should move mountains to make sure we make this reservation? or do we change plans and go out a little later (our ressie is for 4:30)

Where would you suggest? It makes no difference to us whether we are in a park or not. Someone suggested the Boardwalk area, would that be a good option?

We love Le Cellier, but so do our kids, so we couldn't go there without them!

In July, we had a date night at Artist Point, which was a really nice experience.

For our upcoming trip in April, we are planning on going to Tutto Gusto, which has a really nice "tapas" type menu and great wine list.

It does not take reservations.

We like Narcoossee's. The food is good and the atmosphere is nice. If you time it right you can see the fireworks from the MK from the restaurant or the outside deck.

We also like LeCellier, but we like the lunch menu, not the dinner menu.

The guys have requested a steakhouse so I'm leaning towards Le Cellier or the Yatchsman... any other ideas? opinions?

If the guys ask for steak, go to Shula's for sure. Very adult atsomshpere, awesome food, it's a little pricey, but very very good. We will be going again.

If you want the BW area, the Yachtman at Y&B, Flying Fish at BW. Yachtman is an adults atmosphere and the food was good. Never been to Shula's but heard great things about it but is pricey. Narcossess is also good. You also have Todd English's Blue Zoo over at S&D.

the steak at the Yatchman was much better IMO. Now that Le cellier is 2 TS for lunch and dinner, I don't think we will go back there. If I have 2 credits to use, I much prefer Yatchman or California Grill.

The last time I went to Le Cellier I was very disappointed and to me, is NOT worth two credits. Out of the two I would definitely say pick Yachtsman. It is amazing! Plus, you could also walk around the boardwalk for a little bit after maybe!

We went to Teppan Edo for an adult night and loved it

It's not signature or anything, but we love the food and it's a fun atmosphere. It's easier to enjoy when you don't have kids chatting in your ear the whole meal!

Added bonus was walking around Epcot afterwards and getting to see some of the things that the kids don't care about!

If you are having to do a steakhouse I would suggest Shula's first and then Yachtsman. Both of these have nice atmosphers and offer a very good steak. For me LeCellier is too dark, too crowded, too noisy, and just average when it comes to steak. IMHO, certainly not worthy of being a Signature restaurant and 2TS credits.

If DH & I had an adult evening, we would probably go to dinner somewhere on the Boardwalk (like Flying Fish) or somewhere in the World Showcase (like Chefs de France or Italy) and then spend the rest of the night tooling around Epcot. It's very romantic at night
