Anniversary Dinner Resteraunt

DW and I will be having our 10 year anniversary while we are at WDW. We're looking at somewhere nice and quiet. DW has a gluten intolerance so that makes it a bit trickier. We've also ruled out Victoria & Albert's and Shula's. We're open to any cuisine as long as there are gluten free options. Thanks for any advice.

I don't know about gluten free (but I'm sure any Disney signature would accommodate you). Jiko is a very romantic, very quiet restaurant. Amazing food, excellent service.

We had a lovely anniversary meal at Todd English's Bluezoo at The Dolphin. The seafood was fantastic. It was in a different league from the Disney restaurants. Our waitress was only looking after 4 tables so was really attentive in terms of topping up water and wine. She even swept the table between courses. We have also had an anniversary dinner at Narcoosee's where they had printed menus with our names on it. At Narcoosee's the food was good but the tables were very close together and it was much noisier.

All table service restaurants can accommodate a gluten-free meal. Just tell them upon arrival and tell your server so that he can get the chef for you.

I might make it sound more embarrasing that it really was

Citricos or Artist Point, and as others have said either will be able to accommodate special dietary requests.

Disney has been excellent with dealing with food allergies. Our daughter has tree nut allergies and even at the buffets they accommodate her. I would imagine that a Gluten free diet would garner the same attention.

As for a nice restaurant for an anniversary dinner and your wife's dietary restriction, I would recommend Citricos. We went for our anniversary a few years back and it was great. I cannot eat garlic, which like a gluten free diet, can be tricky since every chef uses garlic to a certain extent in almost every dish. However, the chef came over and talked with us for a while and pointed out the items that I could eat, and even offered to make a dish that had garlic without the garlic. So that was a huge plus for me.

Aside from handling my intolerance to garlic, the restaurant was outstanding. It was as good as any big city fancy restaurant, and I found it to be a great spot to celebrate an anniversary. If you tell them it is for your anniversary when making reservations, they may print up special menus with your name and anniversary your celebrating on it. (I know there is no guarantee for such things, but they did it for us.)

Good luck!

I'm not sure about the Gluten-free options, but we've celebrated many an anniversary at Artist Point. Our 30th recently was most memorable. From the time we were met at the podium and greeted by the manager, than escorted to our table for our complimentary champagne and personalized menus to the end of the meal, everything was perfect. I regret that we didn't get our server's name, because she was outstanding

Good food- yes, but Narcoosee's is not the place to go for a quiet meal. DW and I could barely hold a conversation during our last meal there due to the noise level.

We would choose Artist Point.

I had multiple food intolerances on our trip in 2011, including Gluten. It was our 20th anniversary trip. We had alot of great meals. Interestingly enough, Flying Fish, which is one of our favorites normally, was the most disappointing for my issues. Il Mulino is the Swan was AMAZING! I couldn't recommend it more for both a romantic occasion & for gluten issues. There was so much even straight off the menu that I could eat, but the Chef went above & beyond, called me at home before our trip to ask if I had anything special I wanted.... came out to meet me, our server was in school to be a Dietitian..... It was perfection, every moment.
