    The food alone is worth it. The fireworks from the restaurant observation deck are a nice extra. :)

    We've had mixed experiences with food...some things really great...some things just average. Still, the view is very nice if you can get a well timed ADR.

    This was the view from our table on one of our times dining at CG.

    on DH and I's honeymoon in 2009 we had a window seat. This was our first time dining at CG. It was AWESOME! The food is REALLY good also! Since then we have been back probably 3 times? Still good food but sometimes not so great service. Still worth it. If you don't have a window seat and want to go out on the observation deck for fireworks, go early enough. last summer we went out like 5 minutes before wishes started and there were already too many people for me to be able to see (i'm not exactly tall).

    I tried to make a reservation online today and wasn't able. The website said to check back for the reopening date. As far as I can tell, no one is getting reservations, but if I'm wrong, I would love to find out how to get in for Oct!
