Ohana. I really wanted to like it, but I just wasn't impressed. Glad we tried it, but won't go back.

Yachtsman really it was terrible, you can get a better steak at Outback and the service was AWFUL... I really thought the atmosphere was boring too...

Ohana for us. The service was just awful. The food was a mess and some of the meats were not cooked enough. We didn't even wait around for desert, couldn't wait to get out of there as we had already been there for 2 hrs.

Just not worth the hype.

Now OP, I would try Via Napoli again. When you do, request that they cook the pizza longer. So many people complained about the traditional char that I think they reduced the amount of time they leave the pizza in the ovens. Which means it does not get as crisp as they should.
Yea, we were surprised...because it looked like thin crust, which usually wouldnt be that soggy, but it was--- Thanks for the suggestion !!!

Crystal palace dinner. The only buffet in my life I ever left hungry. We got quick service right after since we never took more than a bite of anything...it was awful. I still think it was worth it for the characters since our little boy was 2 and loved Winnie the pooh. I got some of my favorite pics of him there and will never forget the look on his face when he saw Pooh for the first time. I'm willing to try breakfast there but will never go for lunch or dinner again.

Don't get me started on 'Ohana, great concept, poor execution. I'm also surprised at the consistently great ratings for Via Napoli. Based on most of the reviews here you'd think this is the greatest pizza ever. I think it's good, but it's not even close to the best pizza I've ever had(though it probably is the best at WDW).

Raglan Road. Had lunch there this year and it was just OK. I should have gone for something more exotic than fish and chips probably. Service was OK, but nowhere near as good as my other TS experiences over the past 2 trips. It was definitely not worth the time it ate out of my park day going to DTD!

I already voted, but ITA with Raglan Road. We've eaten there twice & I don't get the hype. We haven't enjoyed anything we've tried. Maybe, we haven't ordered the right items, although we did try different things each visit.

Crystal Palace Dinner. Wait was super long. We were there for almost 2 hrs and didn't get to see tigger or piglet. Couldn't wait any more because we had to get out and see wishes. Food was excellent and so was our waitress. I think there was a bunch of mix ups with the characters and handlers, that night.

Another vote for Yachtsman Steakhouse. Steak was just OK, for the price it should have been fabulous.

LeCellier. It's been a couple trips ago that we went - when it was still one TS credit. Food was pretty good, wait and service were not good, and overall it was not a great experience. It would have been a huge letdown at 2 TS credits! Coral Reef often gets panned, but the meal we had there a couple weeks ago was far superior IMHO.

Whispering Canyon Café. We had heard such great things about the food and the atmosphere. Honestly, the food made me gag and the entertainment was not all that it was hyped up to be.

Heard such great things about it--- will try it again, but wanted to really love ! Been looking for a new TS at "Epcot" for while now---

Anyone else??
Sorry to hear that as we had a nice experience there HOWEVER I've been reading mixed reviews which had a lot to do with service there (which can even extend into the kitchen), but they have no excuses for soggy crust, c'mon?? Shame on them! That's a bummer!

For us it was...SANAA for us...NOT GOOD FOR US...feel free to check out my review...
Our Sanaa Lunch Experience

BTW when I've mentioned this on the boards and some posters actually flamed me! How can we possibly have a bad meal there?? It is possible just like your VN experience.

As far as some of the other restaurants mentioned, so not surprised to read about O'Hana, unfortunately it is always a "hit" or "miss" situation, just don't know why. We did not have a good experience at CP dinner either (late ADR-food empty, not fresh, etc) and we didn't care for 1900 PF (food) and we could never really understand the fascination with Le Cellier either. (yes many of the tables are crammed together but maybe some people like this??) And YSH which is another "hit" or "miss". We haven't been there in a long time because our last experience was a "miss" although I have been reading better reviews "overall" these days but still not sure about going back because it's a risky investment...lol!
