I have never been, and I will never go. However, I like following these threads to see how the other half lives.

PS - I hope you get your answer.

Well, we certainly aren't the "other half" but we have been there twice. I am really upset if the reports of a decline there are true. Not only did we enjoy the food and wine but the service and whole experience was so special. In fact the last time there we took our son who was 22 at the time. It was nice that his first experience with this type of dining was in such a comfortable atmosphere. The servers explain everything, and answer any questions, without "judgement."

Just curious...where have you seen other reports?

Please no one base my "report" since I have only seen the food From recent menu.
I have eaten 4 times before. Last time was 2016.

I'd like room see or read other new reviews if someone could post a link.

And one thing I habe noticed. The sample memu online. Is practically the menu you get. Not the case before. I woukd get one or two items that were similar.
Not that it had a bering on quality. And Sulawesi Island Coffee by Joffrey's. Not a bad coffee. Just wondering if Disney is making them use it for advertising? That did started a few years ago.

We had the Miyazaki A5 at V&A last year and it was the best steak I've ever had in my life, which includes many of the country's best steakhouses. Just like Disney, you pay for the experience and the lasting memory. If you have the margin for it, it's a great experience.

For the wine, my wife and I give the waiter a budget and ask them to bring us full or half pours of wines that pair well with our dinner. It's cheaper than the wine pairing cost and is always outstanding. We used this strategy a few weeks ago at Napa Rose and it was outstanding!

Cheers!

I have been thinking of this as well. I havent been yet, but our appetites are smaller nowadays so 10 courses (I do understand the size) are still a lot of food and inevitably will feature foods we aren't very keen on. I guess one day we will try and this would help cushion our feelings on spending so much knowing we will not fully enjoy everything.

Signing on to see if you get your answer. Good luck!
