Wonderful attentive staff and beautiful restaurant. Nothing more you could ask for either with the staff or food except maybe for a bigger stomache...

“A worthy splurge.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

I had been wanting to try Victoria and Albert's for a long time. Since we like to use the Disney Dining Plan and it does NOT currently participate on the plan, it was never convenient. This trip we planned for it and splurged. Our bill with gratuity and taxes (without the wine pairings) was $316.25 for the 2 of us. It was worth it! A 6+ course meal with every choice WONDERFUL. The service was excellent; timing was perfect. The hostess welcomed us by name; we received menus with our names printed on them; I even got a rose at the end of the meal.

“An exceptional meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

My wife and I went to this restaurant as our one night without kids while at Disney. Victoria & Albert's did not disappoint. Each course was truly fantastic and the overall experience was one of the best dining experiences we have had. I do recommend that you do the wine pairing if you go. We could not be happier with our evening and would recommend this place to anyone that can afford to eat here. We had several disappointing dining experiences while at Disney but this was NOT one of them. Congrats to the whole staff on a great restaurant.

“Over the top awesome - the Chef's table experience is worth every penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

Expensive - but totally, totally worth it. My husband and I and our 11 year old, very sophisticated 'foodie' grand-daughter choose this for her 12th birthday event. I reserved 180 days out - as required - and we opted for the Chef's table with it's 10 course tasting menu. The Chef's table is located in the kitchen - 3 sides are wooden bookcases - the fourth side is open to the garde-mange station and the rest of the kitchen. The chef's interact with you while they are cooking - there are at least 4 different servers that present your courses, put out fresh napkins if you go to the toilet, and clear away your dishes. In our case the female sous-chef did the presentation of the dishes, explaining all the components of each dish. There was a butter tasting - and when I asked for some salt - they presented us with 6 different salts to enjoy - including a black Hawaiian sea salt and a red Himalayan salt. The 10 courses started out with an amuse that included a soft-poached quail egg with Caviar, there was king crab leg (the real thing - not that fake stuff that you often get served), a wonderful dish called cold smoked Niman Ranch Lamb that featured the servers pouring hot apple juice over dry ice on a special plate that then 'smoked' the meat, and a divine Alaskan Salmon poached in soy sauce. I particularly enjoyed the Kobe-style beef with over the top garlic mashed potatoes. There were 2 desserts - a play on baked green apple that turned out to be a cake, and a chocolate 'cylinder' that was so good it was hard not to lick the dish. When they presented the bill (be prepared - a meal this good doesn't come cheap) - they also presented a tray of chocolates - many of which were filled with various liquors. The breads - different breads at different times - were delicious as well.

But the icing on the cake was at the very end. They presented my grand-daughter with a Toque Blanche signed by all the cooks and the chef in the kitchen. They then came into our 'space' for a group photo. The look on my grand-daughter's face says it all - this meal was a 10. A meal by which all other meals will be judged.

A few additional notes - they are playing around with some 'modern' cooking techniques - foams, 'caviar', the 'green apple' and the like. But they are using them to complement traditional cooking techniques, and top-notch ingredients - so while sometimes a 'modern' cuisine menu can leave you thinking - what were they thinking - this menu is quite different. It is unique - but in a way that allows you to appreciate the food.

My husband opted for the wine pairings - which while not stunning - they are well paired, and ample pours.

Service is perfect. The staff is highly trained - and they delight in proving that they can this well. The mission is clearly stated and just as clearly delivered - highly professional cast members proudly providing top notch service and food in a Victorian setting.

If you are a foodie - and my husband, grand-daughter and I definitely qualify - the chef's table at Victoria and Albert's is clearly a notch you will want on your belt.
