Dinner Menu at BOG

am I the only one who looks at the dinner menu and thinks "m-eh..."?

I love the thought of it....but just can't see paying those prices for a menu where quite honestly, I don't care of anything! Am I the only one who thinks this?

Nope. I feel the same way. And my biggest problem with it is that half the dinner menu is the same as the lunch menu. Really? You can't at least throw in some decent desserts? I did try to get a dinner ADR, only because my nephew would love to meet Beast, but we'll just make do with lunch
1985 - 2008 at least one trip a year to more resorts than I can name, but I'm going to keep better track from now on.

Enough beignets to kill a person...and other Disney dining.

Nope, not alone. We had dinner ADRs and actually gave them up for lunch instead. Part of it was schedule, but a big part is the lunch menu actually appeals to us more than the dinner!

Same here - I would prefer to go for dinner with an ADR, meet the beast, etc. but the lunch menu looks better than the dinner menu. I actually dropped the ADR on our last trip because I don't think there is much there that we will eat for entrees. I was hoping with the recent changes, there would be some improvements.

Our Ratings of Be Our Guest (lunch / dinner): (rev 4/3/2013)
. . . food price value: B / C
. . . food quality: B / C
. . . food quantity per serving: B / C
. . . food prep speed: B / C
. . . food selection: B / B
. . . seating quantity: A / B
. . . seating comfort: B / B
. . . eatery atmosphere: A / A
. . . eatery convenience: B / B
. . . staff friendliness: B / C
. . . staff attentiveness: C / D
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: The eatery has different food themes than usually found
in a park. Although not "signature" eatery quality, food is good and
tasty. Lunch is QS with no ressies available, and dinner is TS and
ressies are highly advised. The atmosphere is very well done and
probably the most fancy and most themed of any WDW eatery.
As a QS eatery it is one of the best, as a TS eatery it is average.
(For dinner, think:CRT -- good atmosphere, only average food quality.)

Our reviews of menu offerings: (we think lunch is better than dinner)
. . . tuna nicoise salad - pretty good, but light on the olives for my taste
. . . croque monsieur sandwich - nice, but Béchamel needs more nutmeg
. . . turkey on a warm baguette - good, especially with the dijon
. . . roast beef sandwich - tasty, but slightly tough
. . . braised pork - recommended
. . . vegetable quiche - wife liked it (real mean don't eat quiche)
. . . pork rack chop - the pasta out-shined the pork
. . . chicken breast - nicely done and recommended
. . . pan-seared salmon - cooked properly, but average taste
. . . grilled strip steak - good, not great, steak
. . . sautéed shrimp and scallops - were only average
. . . oven-baked ratatouille - average

I was worried about the menu too. It ended up being the favorite meal of the trip over Spring break. All 5 of us were impressed.

I had the steak, dh, dd had the scallops, dd had the cornish hen and ds had the kids steak.

we also had the soup and cupcakes.

Not every restaurant is for everybody. Find a place with food you like.

We were there for dinner the other week and ate in the West Wing which was neat. The food was good, service was ok. Ad for those that posted about "meeting" the Beast...it isn't like a character breakfast where he stops at the tables. He more so stopped at the entry to the West Wing, gave a wave and turned and left. This was on several occasions during our meal. I just want to mention that in case people thought they would get time during the dinner. There is a meet and greet there though.

I agree. Not everyone likes every restaurant or menu selection. Thank heavens. Fortunately we all have the opportunity to look at the menus online before we even make our ADRS. Don't like the menu? Move on to a restaurant with a menu you do like. So easy.

For the record- we've done both lunch and dinner at BOG. We both thought that the quality of the food at both meals was very good and look forward to dining there again. Probably for dinner.

We did the deluxe dining plan for 10 days in November and the regular dining plan this last May for 14 days. I had the same thoughts as you when I first seen the menu for BOG, but after all the great meals I've had at WDW recently when you factor in cost (1 credit), theme, food quality, and overall experience I did not have a better experience that BOG. We had a great experience here.
