We just ate at the Cali Grill this past Friday. When we were checking in, there was a couple ahead of us in line. The wife was dressed in designer pre-stressed and artfully-torn jeans (the kind you pay big $$ for), fashion sandals and a nice shirt...the whole outfit screamed "fashion" and was expensive. The husband had khaki shorts and a fashionable name-brand t-shirt. As we walked up, the person at the podium was in the process of explaining to the couple that they have a dress code at the California Grill and do not allow torn clothing of any kind...and also pointing out that T-shirts were generally not acceptable. When the people complained they did not understand that there was a dress-code when making the reservation, the check-in person said they would make a call. Which they did, and then told the couple they would make an exception this time because it was early (5:30) and they were not busy just then. But they were very careful to clarify that they were making an exception "this one time". That was the first time we have been to a Disney signature restaurant where they even bothered to mention a dress code. We have eaten many times at Flying Fish, Narcoosee's, Citrico's, Artist Point, Yachtsman's, Brown Derby and California Grill...have never seen anyone turned away except when there was no openings on a busy night. Have seen people dining at all those places, dressed in the same kind of clothes these people were wearing. Wondering if California Grill is maybe trying to restore the dressy atmosphere to signature dining? By the way, we were seated in the small room looking out over the lake...marvelous view, and quiet room. Service was excellent as was the food.
