Adult Dining

Hey there, with the exception of Victoria and Albert's, can anyone recommend any other restaurant in the DW area where a couple can have a quiet/romantic dinner? The noise factor in most Disney-located restaurants is of course going to be loud, but any thoughts on either child-free or otherwise somewhat quieter dining options in the World?

Several places come to mind.

In the parks:

Epcot - Bistro de Paris (its above the Chef's de France restaurant and is the most romantic and quiet of the bunch)
DHS - Hollywood Brown Derby

I am sure there are a couple others, but those are the two that stick out in my mind.

In the Hotels:

Grand Floridian - Citricos, Narcoossee's
Wilderness Lodge - Artist Point
Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jiko, Sanaa
Contemporary - California Grill (though its questionable whether it can be quiet and relatively kid free. Parents often take their kids there for dinner to watch fireworks).

Downtown Disney:

Fultons Crab House
The Dining Room at Wolfgang Puck Cafe

Swan/Dolphin:

Shula's Steak House
Il Mulino
Todd English's Blue Zoo


These are the ones I have eaten at or others have eaten at and shared with me. Hope this helps.

Great suggestions. Several I've been to but I think I'm just a noise magnet. The Swan & Dolphin I keep meaning to try but always seem to run out of time. We'll definitely give it a try next year. Thanks!

One relatively quiet spot is the GF Cafe, and the food is good, too. Easy place to visit over a meal.

GF Cafe is one of my go-to places every year. It feels like you are having dinner in a sunroom in someone's house.

In my experience, Bistro de Paris, Bluezoo and Citricos have the fewest kids. Artist Point and Jiko both had a lot of kids but overall the atmospheres at both remained very adult.

Had a quiet dinner at the Yachtsman Steakhouse last year. There were some kids but they were all well behaved.
