Fodor's Review

The view from the surrounding Disney parks from this 15th-floor restaurant—the World's signature dining establishment since 1995—is as stunning as the food, especially after dark, when you can watch the nightly Magic Kingdom fireworks. The space has stylish midcentury modern furnishings and chandeliers, while the exhibition kitchen is so well equipped that it has a cast-iron flat grill designed specifically for cooking fish. Expect locally sourced foods where possible, made-from-scratch items such as the housemade charcuterie sampler appetizer, and many items cooked in the wood-fired oven. Sushi is a highlight, alongside creative, globally inspired entrées. Specialties include oak-fired filet of beef with heirloom tomato risotto, and scallops with piquillo pepper rouille.

My husband and I went there on our honeymoon and they brought us a beautiful dessert that said congratulations. It was wonderfull. the staff was nice, the food was great, and the restaurant was neat looking. We watched the MK fireworks to. It is our favorite restaurant.

A wonderful place for the Adult crowd at Disney. Food and wine were great. After reading other reviews, I am thankful that the manager has enough guts to say something to the parents of a running 3 year old. This is not the Magic Kingdom!

Great Place

We really enjoyed our meal here except for the manager getting on to us because our 3 year old was running around a bit...this is Disney after I would say that the filet at Jikos is better than the filet at California Grill. The California Grill has a great wine list and has diversity within its menu. The service was outstanding aside from the manager's comments....the guy ought to be re-assigned to a walk-up. The decor was very

dated and the temp quite cool along with the manger's attitude towards small children.
