California Grill

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...

The Family at the California Grill (Dianne, Mom, Renae, Me-Julius, Cindy and Jeff And 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, Renae Covington.

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.

Jeff and Dianne with Abdou (standing center) Abdou was 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, The Turf Club, Artist Point, etc.

Cindy and I both rated this and the previous visit with a 5-star rating, and I highly recommend it.
