    I really enjoyed our experience with Chef Mickey's but we felt that the price didn't match it.

    The other place was Flying Fish, was let down by that place.

    For me my biggest letdown was LeCellier. For two years on the DIS I kept reading about all these rave reviews where people were saying the Mushroom Filet was the most incredible steak they have ever had; often describing it as that of an out of body experience (OK, a little exaggeration). But when we went there, what a big let down.

    While waiting 30 minutes past our ADR, we kept seeing people attempting to walk in to dine only to be turned away and then having CM's joke about them afterwards once they left. We were seating next to the entrance leading to the rest rooms and right next to the server station. We asked politely if we could be moved to a different location and that we were willing to wait longer and was told we could not. I asked to talk to the manager and she came out and told us it was there or we could go somewhere else that evening. Again we were polite and these were her exact words. We had a constant flow of people walking and bumping into us on their way to the restroom. We had constant clanging of silverware at the station and servers complaining to each other about how their table guests were or how long they are taking or how cheap they were with their tip.

    As for the food? it was nothing like I was expecting. The steak was cooked fine and it was decent. But the mushroom sauce to me was like Campbells Mushroom soup poured over the steak and on a bed of Minute Rice called Risotto. If it was just the filet without all the other stuff around it I'd give it a solid 6 out of 10. I'll admit this was just prior to LeCellier going signature, but it was such a terrible experience and one of the few I've ever had at a Disney restaurant I'd call terrible that I highly doubt I will ever give it a second try. I make the walk over to Yachtsman Steakhouse when I'm at Epcot when I want a steak.

    I am eating at Le Cellier for the vert 1st time this coming trip. I have read many poor reviews on it. I have fingers crossed and hope it works out good. With that said I had a great filet mignon my 1st visit at YS. Second trip was a disaster. Poor waiter who could care less and the meal was very salty. I was disappointed to say the least. To date Shula's is my favorite steakhouse. I highly recommend it.

    Shula's is an excellent Steakhouse and go there when I'm paying OOP. When I'm on the DDP I will visit Yachtsman. As for LeCellier, I always tell people to go and try something out for themselves, I may not like it but others may. So many love LeCellier, I don't. I've read so many say how they hate San Angel Inn, I love it! Just an example. I hope you have a great experience at LeCellier and share on the DIS how great your time was there. :goodvibes

    I could wait to eat at San Angel for years. Finally I did last trip and it might have bene one of the nastiest meals I ever had in my life. I also couldn't see crap in the place. To each there own and that's the way it goes. I love mexican food but wow that was awful. I don't think I would ever give any other Mexican restaurant a chance. I ever had a awful taco at food and wine. I always pay oop for Shula's. I am not eating there this trip but I hope I don't regret it.

    Rose and Crown was a disappointment to us, as we went in expecting authentic British food - unfortunately, the food wasn’t the same as back home.

    We weren’t big fans of Be Our Guest, as we were seated in the empty side room and felt like we missed out on the restaurant’s ambience.

    Cinderella’s Royal Table also perhaps didn’t stand out as we had expected it to. The food options paled compared to Akershus, and the service wasn’t good - I’m guessing in part due to the fact that gratuity was already included in the cost of the meal.
