Best Restaurant in Disney??? Looking for me and the Wife.

All,
What do you think is the best restaurant in Disney. Price is not an issue.

Victoria and Alberts if you like very gourmet food and "white glove" service. Citrico or Jiko if you like excellent food and excellent polished service.

Boma's at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is also a very nice place to have breakfast before heading out for a day in Animal Kingdom..the problem is finding how to get there. :D

I'd go with the other posters and say Victoria and Alberts is the best bet. But, beware, it costs tons of $$$...well not literally...

Spoodles and the Flying Fish Cafe are both great places to eat at, you can find them at the Boardwalk.

Victoria and Alberts for romance
We really like Bistro de Paris (the upstairs in the back France restaurant) Lots of Disney execs eat here so that should tell you something
Flying fish was a great meal also.
Have fun and you will find many interesting places to eat without the kids. Any restaurant late night generally is not a kid crowded.

Really love the Yachtsman Steakhouse

. . . but haven't been to the ones others have mentioned. If you want a calming atmosphere, a great steak and great service no matter if you're dressed to the nines or in shorts (I think they prefer better dress, but they understand if you've just come from the parks), The Yachtsman is fantastic. However, the others mentioned are a bit more exotic. Have heard V&A's is extraordinarily expensive and may be out of range for my common palate.

Might check into the Chef's Table at Victoria & Alberts...see if that would be interesting to you, certainly unique.
