They had the date of August 31st on the reservation page, but they took it down now. I wouldn't count on it being open for your trip. I have made alternate plans for our September trip just in case.

Yes, last week the reservations page had specified Aug 31 which was curious because the TA site still said "Late Summer" which could technically mean anything up to Sept 21.

Today, the reservations page says:
As part of our continuing efforts to exceed the expectations of our Guests, California Grill is currently closed for enhancements. Please check back here for the latest updates and information about when it will reopen.

I just made ADRs for the end of September, and it's not available to book. That doesn't mean it won't be open by August, I think they just don't know.

2 good Sushi options are Kimonos ,It's in the Swan or Tokyo Dining in Epcot either one is a can't miss for Sushi and if you time it right you can see Illuminations from the 2nd floor of Tokyo Dining.
Enjoy!!!

Or, as these things often go, "late summer" could translate to "mid-autumn."

I have been asking the same thing a lot lately, I am going to WDW in September... I made an ADR for Jiko and Flying Fish now but I really am hoping that Cali Grill opens, then I will have to decide if I want to get rid of FF or Jiko... Decisions Decisions...

That is their MO

Normally I would absolutely agree with you but in this case, given the lost revenue for every day it is closed, I would bet money that unless something structurally catastrophic happened they will be on target with this one.

They are losing serious dollars not to mention the cost of the renovation.

I think it is highly unlikely you will see it open before September.

1) We heard they are running behind.
2) It looks like more extensive roof repairs than thought.
3) All we can do is wait and see.
