I'd like to hear about everyones opinion regarding a romantic evening without the kids. We've done the California Grill twice and were hoping for something different. Please help us plan that one evening alone.
Victoria and Alberts is our favorite romantic restaurant on property but it is not for everyone. If you prefer quantity over quality, you will not like v&a's because the portions are very small but the flavor is out of this world. actually there are so many courses that i could barely finish my dessert. had a fabulous time and will go back again when i can afford it!!!!!!!
flyingchef, it isn't just a quantity vs. quality thing with V & A's...It's the type of cuisine. I, for example, don't like French cuisine (although I can certainly appreciate that many more cultured tastes than mine do). V & A's menu just serves dishes out of the norm, with a presentation that is bound to not satisfy the average pallate. I don't appreciate highly sauced foods and while an hour and a half is fine for a meal for us anything more will become excrutiating.
I only mean to say that V & A's is certainly the creme de le creme, but it is intended for a particular demographic and that demographic isn't the average Disney restaurant goer. But it isn't necessarily better or more romantic than its more, seemingly, pedestrian counterparts...Only in varying degree.
If V & A's fits your budget and the menu appears pleasing, then this is by all accounts the proper choice, but their are other options on other levels...
BlueZoo looked good, but kind of "trendy" and very crowded when we were there...not exactly romantic.
I like The Yachtsmen Steakhouse for a nice dinner, and then a stroll along the Boardwalk. Another fun thing to do is have anice dinner somewhere in the vicinity of the MK (one o the GF, Poly, or CR restaurants) and go down to the water and watch the EWP. We have done it from the Poly beach...very "romantical"
