    Two dinners, one wine flight, one Kobe upgrade, tax and a generous tip (they comped us two glasses of Champagne and a glass of wine for our anniversary) came to $475.

    I can't wait - we leave for our trip in a few weeks and are celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary there. I am trying to talk DH into the wine flights as we've eaten there twice now without them.:)

    We cannot wait until tomorrow. DW and I have the Chef's Table. We will try and check in early so we have plenty of time to get ready and head over.

    That's the problem with WDW, in general, after you've been on a board such as this. You build your expectations up and nothing will ever live up to those expectations that you've engraved in your mind.

    Yes, it is similar. In fact, the Chef from V&A is responsible for half the menu for Remy. Both are incredible experiences!

    And for a different perspective, we have also dined at multiple 3 Michelin star restaurants in Europe, and after many visits, I still keep V&A up in that top tier of restaurants. They've had plenty of opportunities for a misstep or two, but it's never happened. In ten years of visiting there at least once a year.

    So, I personally don't think expectations from this board could ever get in the way of a V&A experience. My expectations of the restaurant are honestly higher than those I see on this board :cloud9:

    We have officially made our ADR for V&A to celebrate during Princess Marathon weekend. I am so excited to finally do this.

    Does anyone have any guesses as to why V&A does not have a Michelin star yet? It does have a AAA 5 Diamond which is less common than 1 star restaurants.

    I can't speak to its review history. but the Michelin star system is said to be extremely political and discriminatory. The US has always lagged behind in Michelin star restuarants compared to European and Asian countries.

    In the U.S., Michelin Guides are city-specific, and there are just three: New York, San Francisco, and Chicago. It would be a serious stretch to find other star-worthy places in Orlando, or at least enough to make a Guide. One for all of Florida, perhaps, but it would still be pretty slim.

    Beyond that, it's pretty much a black box as to the criteria, and it infuriates more restauranteurs than it pleases.

    Las Vegas as well (although the stars weren't reviewed this past year), but yeah, that's what I thought too. I just don't think they have gotten there yet unlike AAA.

    I was worried about this before our visit in January but V&A well exceeded my expectations and blew my husband away. Well, I wasn't really worried until just a few days before when my husband said he was sure the restaurant was all hype!

    Curious, for a V&A newbie, my husbands attire is pretty straightforward...but I'm having a hard time defining evening. In theory, its easy. Practice, not so much. There's not a thread somewhere hiding on it, is there?

    As long as he's wearing slacks and a jacket, be it a tuxedo, suit, or separates like khakis and a blazer, there won't be a problem. Ties are optional.
