After a long day we had made reservations for 9:30 primarily to see the fire works. While initially only wanting desert, we all decided to get an appetizer as well. As soon as we got there, we were greeted nicely and asked if we were celebrating anything, which we were, our sons Graduation. We had a bit of a walk... More

Each time I visit California grill it gets better. Request a seat by the window and get there a little early to have a cocktail outside on the roof.

A little disappointed by California Grill this year, and I don't think either service or food were as good as that we enjoyed two years ago. I have a gluten allergy - perfectly handled by the Disney park restaurants - but not great, in the restaurant considered to be the park's 'hot ticket', that the choice of appetisers was either...

Dinner at this restaurant was a delicious and very pleasant affair. I ordered striped bass, as did another member of my party, with clam cream sauce, and we devoured every morsel. The seafood cioppini and the steak were also outstanding. The restaurant is beautifully appointed, and we enjoyed watching the Disney fireworks from our seats. It was a fantastic experience.

Celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here. Special from the start, checking in down stairs, you get an escorted elevator ride to the top of the Contemporary Hotel. I prearranged flowers to be delivered and had the table decorated. Nice job done by the crew and the food is fantastic. Wait staff is very helpful and knowledgeable concerning the menu etc......

We always have dinner at the California Grill whenever we go to Disney World. The food and wine are outstanding and so is the view.

This is not a typical Disney restaurant. The setting is quite spectacular. It's on the top of the Contemporary Hotel, with views of the surrounding hotels as well as the Magic Kingdom. There is an outside deck for viewing the fireworks. The menu is quite out of the ordinary, including an AMAZING wine selection. I recommend bringing older children and... More

We recently ate dinner here and it was great. It is at the top of the Contemporary Resort. It is much bigger than we initially thought, with plenty of dining space and a bar area. I highly recommend making a reservation, but if you don't you can try and sit in the bar area and eat there as well. We... More
