Fantastic ambiance. Very very classy place. Felt like I was in some exclusive club. Reservations are a must as the queue can stretch quite long. Fantastic service from our waiter Michael. Food was amazing. Fire cracker duck wings and biscuit were out of this world....More

The food here is incredible, the servers are the nicest anywhere and will tell you all about the restaurant. Expect to pay at least $100 for two people, maybe more with drinks. This was an awesome experience, but I won't be dining here regularly.

This is the best restaurant in Disneyland/California Adventure. It is gorgeous and the wait staff is very kind. The steak I had was amazing and the signature biscuits were the best thing on the menu. The chicken satay was decent, however, I am not a...More

Do you need to pay for admission to California Adventure to eat in this restaurant or can you just go in if you have reservations?
