Artist Point

Fodor's Review

If you're not a guest at the Wilderness Lodge, a meal here is worth it just to see the giant totem poles and huge rock fireplace in the lobby of the hotel. The specialty at this restaurant, which focuses on foods of the American Northwest, is cedar-plank salmon, served with seasonal items like rainbow cauliflower, root spinach, lemon-butter sauce, applewood-smoked bacon jam, and short rib strudel (worth its $35 price tag). The buffalo is another signature item, sometimes char-grilled and served with luscious enhancements like Zellwood corn–sausage hash, Yukon gold–potato smear, and blackberry Pinot Noir reduction. There's a good Northwestern U.S. wine list and a wine-flight-pairing option for an additional cost.

Artist Point Review

We dined at Artist Point when we went to WDW last year and had an exquisite time. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. I would highly recommend dining there. Yes, it is more expensive, but it is excellent.

Meat that jumps off your plate...literally

I am prepared to love all things Disney, and I really did try to like Artist Point, but I'm sorry, this restaurant was terrible. I dined with two other adults, and they didn't care for it either. My biggest complaint was that the meat was virtually raw. Not rare, RAW - all three of our meals. I know this degree of "doneness" is popular in certain areas of the country, but the waiter should have inquired as to our preferences. In addition, my

veal, although raw, was also tough. I thought the whole idea of not overcooking meat was to avoid toughening it. The sauce served with the meat was thick and gloppy. I sent my entree back for further cooking, but it didn't help much. The waiter was kind of snooty, even before I sent my plate back to the kitchen.
