    DH and I had a magical evening on Saturday 7/26. We went to the California Grille - our favorite place to dine. The waiter was Gary and he was wonderful. He asked us if it was our first time dining there and we told him no, we dine here every time we visit WDW. From that, Gary treated us royally. He then asked if we were celebrating anything special. I said it would be our wedding anniversary in 4 days but this was our anniversary dinner. He encouraged us to take our time - to enjoy the observation deck between courses. He would hold our course until we returned to the table. He brought over samples of wine for us to taste before ordering our wine. The meal was superb. I had the filet of beef over cheese potatoes. DH had the tuna. We shared an appetizer of the smoked salmon flatbread.

    To close the meal, we received a large slice of chocolate/raspberry cake with a square of chocolate engraved on it "Happy Anniversary from the California Grille".

    We ate a leisurely, well-presented, exsquisitely served delicious dinner at a superb restaurant.
