Observation: Monsieur Paul Dress Code

Observation regarding Monsieur Paul Dress Code. We dined there early evening in late July.

While waiting to be seated another family checked in. There was a young adult male in the group wearing a tank top and a baseball cap on backwards. The hostess very quietly informed the guest that he need a sleeved shirt and the cap would have to go. The parents took it in stride and started looking in the backpack for a tshirt. Couldn't find one. He had to go purchase a shirt. He was not happy.

We were delighted that the Monsieur Paul staff insisted the dress code be enforced.

Not that I disagree with enforcement, but its going to be mighty hard to enforce a dress code for a restaurant IN a park. I'm all for it though!

Good! The dress code information is available online (not sure if they give it verbally over the phone still. I know they did for Flying Fish on the last trip) so there is really no excuse NOT to follow it. I would be SO ecstatic if they got stricter with the dress codes for signature dining.

It's nice to know that Monsieur Paul has a dress code they're trying to enforce. However, I admit I'm a little surprised because previously the in-park Sigs (e.g., Hollywood Brown Derby, Le Cellier, Monsieur Paul) didn't have a dress code.

I see it clearly stated on the resort Sig webpages (e.g., Flying Fish), but don't see it on the in-park Sig pages yet. Hopefully it'll be listed soon.

The Monsieur Paul webpage I was looking at:

I'm not that surprised - unlike the other in-park signatures, Monsieur Paul is not operated by Disney. So maybe they will do things a little differently.

Yay!

Glad they are doing something about this at Monsieur Paul. Wish Disney would enforce the dress code at the Signature restaurants as well.

So how was the food?

I am glad they enforced the dress code. I mean it's not like they are asking for formal wear just for you not to look like you are going to wash the car LOL!

The food was gorgeous and delicious. There were 8 of us and the Chef graciously served an amuse bouche, which I didn't get a picture of but it is their Escargot Ravioli in Parsley sauce. Raviole d'escargots, creme au persil.

I ordered 2 appetizers, 1 as an app Salmon Saumon mi-cuit marine, salade de concombre - Lightly cooked marinated salmon, blinis, cucumber salad



And 1 for my entree, Soupe aux truffes V.G.E. - Beef broth, oxtail, vegetables, black winter truffle, puff pastry.



I asked the waiter to serve a glass of wine with each appetizer and they paired perfectly.

No offense but if they don't want to dress up to at least a t-shirt and remove the ball cap they can go get a hotdog at the American Pavillion.


Sure looking forward to my ADR at MP in December!!!

Wearing a T-shirt and taking off a baseball cap = a dress code?
It's a long way from a jacket & tie being required.

I couldn't agree more. I guess I am getting old. The way I was raised up is that any restaurant (including a McD's) you removed your hat when entering the doors. :confused

Wearing a hat in a restaurant that not showing sports on TV is kinda common sense, at least where I grew up. Conversely,not wearing a hat/jersey/etc at a sports event also weird. Tank top? I'm sorry, I don't want to see someone's hairy (and probably sweaty) armpits while I drop some cash on a great meal. I doubt anyone on Monsieur Paul's just happened to walk in there. You need a reservation months out, and probably knew you were going there that day (at least pack a t-shirt).

I, too, am glad to see a dress code enforced. We usually do 3-4 signature meals during our trip, and at least twice last trip I saw people seated wearing clothes I wouldn't wear to the grocery store — tattered T-shirts, baseball caps, holey pants. The staff never said a word.

I prepare for our signature dining, to the point of packing a polo shirt for my son in our park-day items, even when he was 5, which he changed into before dinner (and changed out of to get into his Halloween costume afterward). I actually stopped during our two-day drive last time to buy him a polo shirt because I thought I'd forgotten to pack it. We actually missed an ADR by about 20 minutes because of that stop. But I wasn't going to violate a clearly stated dress code. But maybe I'm just too much of a stickler for following the rules...
