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

My daughter was very sad when I told her there were no reservations available for when we are going. She wants to eat here so badly, no where else. But, I wont be spending 3 hours in line for lunch. We are 85 or so days out, first time going to wdw and it sucks that we cant do this.

Check the cancellation thread on this site for month you are going. I have seen lots of BOG cancellations there for the month we are going. And keep checking the ADR site daily, you are a long way out and cancellations are very common!

We lucked out and got an ADR for dinner about a week before the trip. It was amazing! We went in with low expectations for the food, as I have read some people didn't rate the food that high, but we loved it! DH had the steak and it was great and I had the pork chop- delicious! Hope you get and adr or get to have lunch there!

no, they did not. It's a new thing. There's a bunch of good info (and not so great info) in multiple threads in the theme parks Strategy section of the DIS.

The short of it is that in the new system, rumor has it, that guests will be able to fastpass quick serve dining. They will also have many more options than they had under the old system. I do encourage you to look for those threads.

To answer OP: We tried BOG for dinner last spring. It was worth seeing the decor. I wouldn't personally rank it in the top tier of dining choices at WDW, except that it's new. I liked that that it is NOT a buffet. Then again, since it's not a buffet, it was a bit on the slow side. The entrees were okay, but there wasn't anything particularly unique or outstanding. You can get almost the same steak at 50+ other places in WDW.

I don't know what I expected, except that my family generally likes to be seated (approximately) on time. We did our part: booking at 180 days and arriving 15min early ADR. They did not. (about 30min late) So no doubt that tainted my perspective a bit. Service was also mixed. Maybe as the staff gets more experienced, those parts will also improve.

IMO, the highlight was dessert. That part of the meal is very true to French dining!
