Chefs de France is very good food and a number of options. You can go alla cart or fix priced complete meals. I have dined there 3 times and have enjoyed each meal. The onion soup is wonderful.

My vote is yes. We ate there in May, all of us including the 10 year old, enjoyed the meal. In fact, she wants to eat there again when we go in October.

we all had there lunch special. My husband is a light eater so going hungry is a good idea.

I really liked the Prix Fixe lunch in 2012 - I had the French Onion soup, Croque Monsieur sandwich and Profiteroles. I would happily go back.

We eat there every trip. We have gone lunch and dinner. I like lunch a little more but either is great. I especially love getting to see Remy since they added him too!

We are eating there in October. My family and I like to try new restaurants every trip, but there are a core group of restaurants that make the list every time, and Chefs de France is on that list. Last time we were there it was THE highlight of the trip when Chef Remy visited our table with some dining recommendations, an example of Disney at its finest.

Our Ratings of Chefs de France: (rev 3/1/2013)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: C
. . . food quantity per serving: B
. . . food prep speed: C
. . . food selection: C
. . . seating quantity: C
. . . seating comfort: B
. . . eatery atmosphere: C
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: C
. . . staff attentiveness: C
. . . character interaction: n/a (REMY is fun, for lunch, only)

NOTE: Chefs is a pleasant French eatery, although most dishes
have been Americanized. The service is a pretty slow and the servers
sometimes inattentive, just like in France. As a middle-priced eatery,
it is well placed. The food is average, except leave the snails to run in
the garden, as the snails they use have been sourced differently and
the quality is downgraded. We also thought the cheese plate was very
tasty, but we admit our senses might have been blunted by the copious
amount of vino. We were quite displeased with the entrées, as they
were French-inspired, but not even close to real French (we used to go
to France every four months for business). The atmosphere is good, but
the tables are uncomfortably close to one another. Average American
tastes will like several entrées, but anyone familiar with French cuisine
will be disappointed.
