    I hate to say it, but they probably intended to make a long row to get more seats. With a little shuffling all those table of two can become just about any size.

    As to the earlier comment about being kinda' bland - I'm no design person, bit if the room is about the view(s), then bland is what you want elsewhere.

    I kept looking for the DJ table and waiting to hear Chicken Dance music.

    Anywhere else I might believe that, but at WDW I've seen enough kids sleeping on the booths in areas with that seating set up that I think it'll be just the opposite. Parents who know their kids are at their limit will request the booth areas so the kid has room to rest, often at the expense if the personal space of those seated on either side. As you said, it is easy to reconfigue those areas into 4 or 6 top seating so it'll only be kid-free if they happen to need all or nearly all of those tables for parties of 2.

    I hope they do something to muffle the sound! I always thought it was way too loud in CG.

    But IS it ALL about the view? I guess everyone's entitled to his opinion about that, but it certainly isn't mine.

    meh! Those banquettes don't work. There are some (individual) ones at Boma and I always see younger kids standing up on them and walking on them. I can just picture myself sitting at a banquette and having the kids in the table next door trying to "walk" over (and before anyone says I am anti-kids, I have two young ones who absolutely adore Cali Grill).

    I'm with you on this. The view along with the food and the ambiance of the dining room is what makes it. If it was all about the view only then paint the walls white, bolt chairs and booths to the floor like a McDonald's, and serve microwave Stouffers dinners.

    Since it is just my wife and myself on most visits to CG, I can see that we will be stuck at these tables from now on unless we request a window table. I hate, hate, hate these kind of tables. When you spend well over $100 for dinner you should not be stuck at these tables.
