How was the food you had at Cali Grill? It's been getting some mixed reviews, and I'm heading there in a few days. Was there anything you had that was very yummy or kind of, er, awful?

Overall this was the best meal that I have ever had honestly incredible!!! Ask for Dawn she was a great waitress...

The only think I had that was awful was the Duck Liver in the Duck in all its Glory... Just not for me... but I still LOVED the app...

The Filet and Risotto was out of this world good!!!

Overall this was the best meal that I have ever had honestly incredible!!!

Here is my quick two cents...

California Grill: Amazing new menu and the Views are even better!!! (I love the new observation deck) Restaurant is so much more beautiful than it used to be it really reminds me of the classic contemporary!!! Right now this has the most unique menu on Disney Property... I expect it to change because Disney seems to tone down new menus but for now it is a Foodies Paradise... The Duck in all its Glory is such a fun take on a charcuterie board... The Surf and Turf is very uniuqe the Bone Marrow is very creamy... Sushi is as fablous as ever... especailly the Spicy Kazan Roll (arguably the best app on WDW property)... I love the idea of the Pork Sushi its a really great way to get people to try Sushi... The Filet is INCREDIBLE and the Rissoto rivals Le Celliers as the best on property!!! All of the desserts are great honestly this restaurant is simply AMAZING!!!

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!!!

Yes it does have tomatoes this is the description... Heirloom Tomato Risotto, Marinted Baby Vine Tomatoes, Petite Basil, Tomato Butter

Here is a photo If you do not like Tomatoes than I would not recommend this dish to be honest...

Thanks so much! I have been trying to find a picture!! I am one of those who judge by looks, not taste. Totally wouldn't order based on the picture! But I do remember their filet was one of the best I have had, so I could always ask for the risotto on the side and only salt and pepper on steak. I wish they kept the old one thanks again for all your help!!!

How was Landscape of Flavors?

We'll be eating breakfast & dinner there and i've heard the food is pretty good! I always love the food courts - such a good variety of food!

Please do reviews, your table service meals are all of our favorites and one we're anxious to try next month!

Curious about Shula's, that's the one we've never been to!

No trouble to be honest I like it a LOT more than the old one but the Risotto really made the dish... If you like pork the Pork two ways was also very good!

The Pork Tenderloin with the applesauce was outstanding!!!

Both were outstanding! Last time at FF I really mis ordered so I was really tried to order what sounded the best and I did! I ordered the NY Strip with Mac and Cheese instead of the other sides and it was OUTSTANDING! The Mac and Cheese was titled "Fontina and Truffle-laced Trofie Mac n Cheese" so not really your average Mac and Cheese haha I had heard it was great and it didn't disappoint!

Jiko was as amazing as ever I think it is the most consistent restaurant on Disney property! The apps are always amazing (especially the flatbreads) and the Filet with Mac and Cheese is also fantastic! Its only downfall has been its desserts and they were outstanding this trip!
