Had a late lunch here while visiting Disney. Service was excellent and ambiance above average. Would have been better had the staff not been so noisy setting up for dinner. Our server was constantly apologizing for the noise. The food and wine was very good and worth the noise. Would definitely eat here again.

We made a dinner reservation at this place since we were already at California Adventure and we wanted to try something new. When we arrived there were several staff at the desk. No one asked if we needed help or anything. We had to approach the lady by the door and informed her of our reservation. She then told us... More

Great service, amazing food and surrounding that make you feel way underdressed for the meal. Disney really makes you feel like you are special in this one of a kind environment. I had the quail and it was simple perfect. The meal was pricy but in the end I felt way better paying the amount I paid for what got.... More

We booked the Frozen package. The restaurant itself is very grand. When we arrived there were around 7 members of staff all stood at the desk. Not sure why so many and it was a bit off putting. We were given a Frozen lanyard and badge which was a nice surprise. Lunch was at 12.30 and it was the 3.30... More

Having grown up with going to Disneyland, I was so used to spending all day getting on as many rides and possible. Dining was something that did only to hold us over while we were waiting in line...a turkey leg here, churro there. Needless, we always chose quick eats over full-service dining options when visiting. However, on my most recent... More

We were so excited to celebrate two family members' birthdays at this special restaurant but were so disappointed in the outcome. The food was cold and 3 of the 4 different entrees we tried had a very sweet flavor that didn't seem right for the dish served. We made our reservation using the app and noticed several days later that... More

We enjoyed a lunch at the Carthay Circle. It is inside Disney's California Adventure and is more of an upscale place to eat. It doesn't seem to have the reputation of the Blue Bayou in Disneyland because it was not very full at all and reservations were easy to get. Granted, it does not have the ride ambience of the...

Bad experience began when we arrived for our 6:00 reservation at 5:55. The hostess standing guard out front would not let us in until EXACTLY 6:00! After we had checked-in, we were told to wait in the nearly empty lounge. We waited for about 15 minutes while waiters tried to get us to order drinks and then we were finally... More
