I loved the salmon, it was delicious! I also ordered the salad for an appetizer, and the dressing was sooooo good!!

I would go back just to get the mussels appetizer. It was awesome. Plus beer.

The Cornish hen is off the menu. It's now a chicken breast. Wasn't crazy about the Cornish hen when I had it. It wasn't bad but it was kind of boring, needed seasoning.

I hope the chicken is bigger than the Cornish hen. I actually laughed when it was put down on the table.

This really depends on your server--- we were able to get the "Grey Stuff" the other nite (others around us did as well), just by asking -

Regarding the Cornish Hen at BOG, Josh at easyWDW tweeted earlier today that it is still on the menu and the chicken breast is not. He said that you could order the chicken, though, and the server told him that they're testing it for a couple of weeks.

We only ate there once for dinner -this past Wednesday - and we were unimpressed. My daughter got the steak and it had a lot of gristle - she wouldn't eat it. I got the Cornish Hen and while the seasoning was fine it was a tad dry. My husband got the steak and didn't like it. He says we make better steaks at home. He actually sent his fries back because they were too salty and he can handle more salt on his food than I can.

Dessert cupcakes were fine though.

They were testing a chicken breast last week with what sounds like a puttanesca sauce (plum tomatoes, anchovies and black olives).

I wouldn't cancel it yet. As PP's and I mentioned earlier, there are conflicting reports about whether or not the Cornish Hen has been replaced. Josh at easyWDW tweeted a picture yesterday of the menu that still had it on there. It seems that they're still testing whether the Chicken Provenšal will make the menu.

Smile Loved BOG!

My family (me, dh, son 15 son 11 and my mom and dad) visited MK in April for the day (we were visiting my folks in New Smyrna Beach). I actually booked BOG at the 180 mark before we had our travel plans finalized hoping we would be able to drive up for the day.

So after a great day at the park we had dinner reservations for 5:45. We had a very short wait after we checked in and sat at a table for 6 in the main ballroom. Absolutely beautiful!

Two of us had the pork chop and the other 4 had the seafood puff pastry. We all loved our food and like many previous posters have stated, the macaroni side Dish with the pork was really amazing. My dh had the mussels for an appetizer, my two boys shared the charcuterie plate, and the rest of us had the salad. Again, everyone was very happy. Very fresh, hot and delicious and unique flavours. I would say of the three, the mussels were especially good!

For dessert I think we had 3 flavours - chocolate, strawberry, and another kind (I forget)! But they were all fantastic! Very fresh, moist and flavourful.

The coffee was the best coffee we've ever had (maybe with the exception of lue Mountain coffee in Jamaica) so that is saying a lot.

But really the restaurant is the star of the show. The food was wonderful and so fresh but the details of the restaurant, the snow falling outside, and meeting the Beast after our dinner all made the dinner extraordinary. It was expensive but absolutely worth it in our opinion as it was a special experience. My mom and dad have not been to Disney in probably 25 years soot was a very special day for all of us - topped off with one of the most memorable and special meals I have ever experienced!

Wow! Great review! Thanks so much. I am more excited than ever. Sound like the pork chop is something I'd like!!

According to most reports it is a very small portion whipped cookies-and-cream flavored panna cotta. This is given to guests at dinner only (not at lunch) who are celebrating something. If you're not celebrating something, you can ask, but you may not get it.
