Via Napoli-Found at Epcot's Italy Pavilion, Via Napoli is famous for their pizza! When we visited, we ordered the Spaghetti e Polpettine (spaghetti with veal meatballs), Carciofi Signature Pie (artichoke, mozzarella, truffle oil, etc), and a basic cheese and pepperoni pizza.
Our Grade: A
Comments: Both pizzas were excellent! They were fresh, different, and so so good! This is especially true of the Carciofi Pie. We have never had anything like that before; and if you haven't experienced Truffle Oil, you don't know what you're missing! The spaghetti was good, but nothing special. That's the only reason why Via Napoli didn't get an A+.
Le Cellier-Another Epcot restaurant, tucked away in the Canada Pavilion, Le Cellier is a very popular steakhouse famous for their Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup and Filet Mignon. We ordered both dishes!
Our Grade: A
Comments: The soup was as smoky and unique as always; however, when we visited, Le Cellier was experimenting with the popular Filet Mignon dish. It was once served with Mushroom Risotto and Truffle Butter Sauce, but chefs were beginning to add other ingredients. Recently, it has been confirmed that chefs now serve the Filet Mignon with Spinach Risotto, bacon, and Parmesan butter sauce. So while we haven't tasted the newest version, and even though we've heard it's good, we wish Disney wouldn't have messed with perfection. That's why we gave Le Cellier only an A.
Diamond Horseshoe Saloon-Only open seasonally, this counter service spot can be found between the Magic Kingdom's Liberty Square and Frontierland. The saloon is large and offers seating on the floor and up in the balcony and the menu consists of a selection of sandwiches. We had the Portobello Sandwich with Kettle chips.
Our Grade: B
Comments: The sandwich was good and fresh, but wasn't amazing. However, it's much better than greasy burgers and fries!
Boatwrights-This is Port Orleans Riverside's only sit-down restaurant and features a cozy, shipbuilder's theme. The menu here consists of Southern-style dishes, like Crawfish and Jambalaya and Pecan Pie. We had the Voodoo Chicken served with Red Beans, rice, and Collard Greens with the Bananas Foster for dessert.
Our Grade: D
Comments: The chicken and the gravy served with it did not have a good flavor; and while the red beans and rice were okay, it wasn't enough to compensate for the main dish. We ate what we could, but definitely were not in the mood to try Boatwrights again any time soon. However, the Bananas Foster was excellent!
Columbia Harbor House-A Magic Kingdom favorite, this Liberty Square counter service restaurant is known for its yummy menu and plentiful seating. Dishes include New England Clam Chowder, Fried Fish, Lobster Rolls, and more. We had the Fried Fish, Chicken Tenders, and the New England Clam Chowder.
Our Grade: A+
Comments: The fish and chicken was both excellent and had great flavor. Our favorite is always the New England Clam Chowder and it's consistently good with generous hunks of clam! Quality and taste were considerably high for a counter service restaurant.
Be Our Guest-This Magic Kingdom Fantasyland restaurant is the most popular restaurant at Disney World right now, and for good reason! First of all, the restaurant is the Beast's Castle and there are three different dining rooms to enjoy, such as the West Wing, the Rose Gallery, and the iconic Ballroom from the film, complete with falling snow out of the window. It's a counter service restaurant at lunch, but a sit-down restaurant for dinner. We ate here for dinner in the creepy West Wing with the enchanted rose glowing nearby! We enjoyed the Potato Leek Soup, Grilled Strip Streak, and the Grey Stuff!
Our Grade: A+
Comments: The Potato Leek Soup is one of our most favorite things at WDW right now. It's mellow and creamy, but not too heavy, and the taste is delicious. Trust us, you will be raving about this dish. The Grilled Strip Steak was tender and juicy, sure to satisfy meat-eaters. Did we mention it was topped with garlic butter? It was also served with pommes frites, which are french fries, but served with a special dipping sauce that we've been craving ever since. Without a doubt, Be our Guest deserves an A+.
