    Has anyone had dinner at this restaurant recently? We are working on our final itinerary and making some changes to our Advance Reservations. The person at Disney Dining recommended the Grand Floridian Cafe. I have not heard anyone talk about it, so I wanted to know what you think of it...

    Thanks

    We were there in June. We were staying at the Grand Floridian so we tried it and loved it. The chocolate fondue for dessert was awesome!! :Pinkbounc

    We have had lunch and dinner there and enjoyed both meals. The restaurant is very pretty and the service good. At lunch, we had burgers and some sort of pasta for dinner. One of the best things are the mini desserts. They are sized so you can can get two!

    The tables by the windows have wonderful views of the beautiful grounds.

    I have eaten here a number of times and loved it. The food is well prepared and service is excellant. The prices are a smug higher but worth it. Most of the time I have gone for breakfast and have never been disappointed. You will enjoy the surroundings as well.

    We really, really enjoy it!

    The dining room is very airy and pretty--especially nice during the day. Service has always been very professional and the food is wonderful! It's always been perfectly cooked and with extra touches that make it really nice.

    The one frustrating thing I've experienced there is that they seem to ALWAYS make us wait for a table. We'll have an 11:30 PS and get there 10 minutes early, the restaurant is largely empty, waiters are standing around, but they insist on making us wait at least 10 minutes. I don't know why but it drives me batty!

    Some menu items we've really enjoyed have been the spinach and artichoke dip, the veggie burger, the regular burgers, and their special sandwich at lunch that's served open faced with a boursin cheese sauce! Yum!

    They also have nice little mini desserts. Perfect when you want something sweet but are pretty full from you meal.

    We stayed at GF and found this restaurant to be very good. It doesn't have a particular theme as the others do, but we have a few good meals there.

    I have this on my list to make ADR's at. Mostly because I saw many good reviews on this board -was also listed on a thread that listed sort of "hidden jewels" ---great resturaunts that don't get much hype.

    We had a great lunch there. Anyone else get served by that funny little gay waiter that looked like manuel from Faulty Towers? He shows you a a photo of his 2 kids, which are dogs. :rotfl:

    I was looking at the date, and this thread was started a year ago today. It's weird what I notice.

    This came up in my subscribed threads, and I had to wonder to myself, when did I post in a thread about GF Cafe - I've never eaten there? It was because I was supposed to eat there last Dec, and was interested in reviews.
