We had three bad experiences at 'Ohana

but they were all based on service and not the food. We gave it another shot last fall and had a wonderful waitress and the food was done perfectly. We had a table by the window and a great view of wishes to top it off. I enjoy the apps, meats and deserts. If a meat item is brought to the table and it is not done properly we simply don't eat it and when the waitress comes back ask for what we want (rare, medium, not dryed out etc)

It's not te resturants fault that there are screaming kids or rude guests at the podium....

Ummm...the screaming kids are a huge reason why the entire experience was unpleasant. And frankly, when the restaurant hosts races and parades through it then the resulting chaos IS their fault.

We loved Ohana and can't wait to go again. Our meat was tender and moist and the service was excellent. One of the best meals we have had on property.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I didnt like it either. Food quality is bad. Meat is dry and just crappy quality. Potstickers are dry. Wings are slimy. Never again.

Ugh. 1900 isnt much better than ohana. Food quality and selection is pretty bad there too. But stepsisters are hilarious so its worth a shot.

We had dinner there last year and we won't be back. It wasn't bad, just not that good. The meats were a bit dry, some of the starters and side-dishes were cold. WE feel it wasn't worth the money...

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

We went in 2008, and thought it was just OK.

No particular complaints. But no burning desire to return either.

We ate dinner on arrival night in 2007. Table for 2, we had horrible service but didn't let it ruin our night. The food was mediocre at best. Haven't been back since but I'd like to try it again.

We used to REALLY love ohana for dinner. We were there this past Jan, and was told my favorite dipping sauces they used to offer (3), are no longer available, and now it is just one standard one, slightly disappointed at this. Also, the service wasn't great (it used to be in our opinion). It's not on our Must do list anymore.

Not a fan, either. And I gave it 2 shots because I figured maybe one of them was a fluke because there are so many people who love that place. But both times the pacing was way off - we had our main meats served on top of one another with no time to even contemplate trying to eat the appetizers, the meat was too sweet and some of it was dried out. The bread was dry, too.

My kids ate nothing. I mean - they hated the bread, they hated the noodles, hated the meats and they are not particularly picky kiddos. I was surprised because they are used to eating out and trying new things but it just was not for them. So apparently I find out later that they offer other options to kids but this was never even mentioned as an option by our server. He took no notice that NOTHING was eaten off any of the THREE of their plates. If I had known this, obviously I would have ordered them something else.

Then when we were done with our meal we waited about 25 minutes (no, seriously) for our dessert. We watched desserts being served around us, looked and could not locate our server, begged the other servers to please find him and tell him we are ready for our dessert (our plates had been cleared away ages ago). Then another 10-15 for our check. Meanwhile the kids are starving. Good thing we weren't going anywhere else that night.

We ate there in Aug 2011. Great service, little waiiting, food was prepared well.

It was the number one choice of my wife and kids when I started to make ressies for our next trip.

That being said, I could see thisbplace being a problem for 2 main reasons:
The kid parade, bowling, etc. Could ruffle feathers
I could see the meats being over or underdone easily

We liked the apps and the family style.

We went for breakfast and dinner during our last trip. While we liked the breakfast, we weren't real thrilled with dinner. While it's not somewhere that I would refuse to go, we have no want to go back and can't imagine that we will, at least for quite a while.

'Ohana redeemed itself for me in 2012 when I had a really good server and loads of shrimp. Personally I like the flavors, it's just do you have enough to eat that is cooked properly. I can do without the beef or pork.

At that point I decided I would do it every 2 years (I go to WDW more than once a year.)
