We’ve always wanted to try this restaurant purely for the view and the great things we’ve heard about the food. The view was as spectacular as you’d think, especially since we booked out reservation right around fireworks time. The restaurant actually puts everything on hold...More

We arrived in Orlando yesterday and I booked the California Grill for our first night because this was our favorite restaurant while visiting 2 years ago. It did not disappoint! We had a 7:10 pm reservation and arrived about 20 minutes early. We were promptly...More

This has been a favorite of ours for 8 years. Sat at the bar and noshed on several small plates and all were amazing. The spicy kazan roll always a winner followed by poached pear pizza with prosciutto and a short rib with hominy grits....More

Food is very tasty thought restaurant is often very busy. Great place to go for dinner and then watch the Magic Kingdom firework display from the balcony. Great steak and fish dishes.

The one recommendation I would make is to try and tie this in with the fireworks. Wonderful views from the walkway, with the music playing. Great selection of wines. The steak was very nice, and Chris (our server) was very knowledgeable.

Having a 3 year old, my husband and I rarely get to dine out where the food is exceptional. This was the case with California Grill. It’s one of the more pricey places to eat at the Disney resort but well worth it. Make sure...More

Every time we come here, both the service and food are extraordinary. You can't beat the view especially during the MK fireworks. Their oak fired filet of beef is amazing, very tasty. My wife LOVES the Sonoma goat cheese ravioli. We order the same thing...More

I have heard the lounge is open seating. While we waited for our table to was packed. In fact I had a tough time getting a drink while we waited. I’m thinking they do allow it depending on the available space at the bar.

Any booking around the fireworks scheduled time should be good. The staff will delay the arrival of a course if you indicate that the fireworks are a priority for you, even for the full 18 minutes of the show. If your... More

We didn’t have any luck with this request but my son eats pizza so we were ok. Most restaurants can always make a grilled cheese even if it’s not on the menu, we learned that along time ago. But specifically chicken tenders... More
