The first time
going to the California Grill was in December, 2009. Cindy
and I went with Karl
and Terri Rosenhan, as part of their 10th
Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal, along with the Bransons
(Mike, Sondra and their son, Hayden).
We had an absolutely
wonderful time, from our server, Walter, to the food... We
experienced both quality service and delicious food, and vowed
to come back...
so we did... In July, 2010, Cindy
and I once again enjoyed the fine cuisine at the California
Grill. This time we brought a little group of our own,
including my mom, Martha Covington, my sister Dianne Wright
and brother-in-law, Jeff Wright, and my younger daughter,
The food was just
as good as before, and all our guests thought it was there
best dining experience overall, although they enjoyed every
place we took them.
|I think they
were impressed (as were Cindy
and me) from everything we experienced there, starting
with the 'elevator lady' Larana taking us up to the restaurant
after we checked-in with our reservations, to the seater
Steve (who happened to be from West Virginia University),
on through the entire dining experience.
The setting was
awesome, with a view of Cinderella's castle from our table...
Who could ask for more than that, and with the California
Grill being situated on the 14th floor, you could pretty much
see all of Disney from anywhere in the restaurant.
our server at the California Grill, and he was just as
professional as expected (Walter had set the bar during
our first visit). Abdou had a very thorough knowledge
of the menu, and his recommendations were right on target.
Wow! The folks at the Disney
World Resort restaurants really know their stuff!
I had the Asian
Shrimp Salad for my Appetizer and the Filet of Beef for my
Entree, and thoroughly enjoyed both. The California Strawberry
Napoleon for Dessert was a nice ending too.
I'm glad Cindy
and I decided to have dinner at the California Grill near
the end of the trip, since everyone enjoyed it over the others
(and their was some stiff competition... Citrico's,
Turf Club, Artist Point, etc.
and I both rated this and the previous visit with a 5-star
rating, and I highly recommend it.
