    :tongue: Im asking this one on behalf of an office friend, honest

    She's really worried about the after wedding meal for their party since they've been unable to get v&a for several reasons and have been suggested california grill.

    Anyone have any comments on whether the california grill would be any good or should she look elsewhere

    The Californian Grill seems to have mixed reviews, some folks love it and others have had cause for complaint about the service etc.etc.
    Other WDW venues that your friend may consider are Citricos` [right next door to V & A`s], the Blue Zoo, the Bistro de Paris or the Yachtsmans Steakhouse, all of which seem to get a favourable response from many who dine there [me included!].

    I had my wedding meal at the California Grill. We only had a small intimate wedding (there was 6 of us) and I wanted to extend the day a little, so we decided on CG. Mainly as I wanted my mum and dad to see the fireworks. Our wedding was 6 years ago so it may have changed a little since then, but I was allowed to wear my dress etc and we had a table slightly away from the main area so it felt like we had our own small little private reception.

    Food was good too

    I hope I'm allowed to say that I was priviliged to be there and had the BEST time, it truly was really really great. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it for the evening meal on the special day. Of course we had great company as well ;-) which always helps.

    I wore my wedding dress on the monorail I needed to go get changed, so my mum and me left the California Grill and rode the monorail round to the Grand Floridian where we were staying the night. Never had so many people stare at me, don't think they could quite believe that I was riding the monorail in my wedding dress :tongue:

    We had ours at V&A and were still in our wedding outfits. As we stepped out of the lifts a little girl saw DW in her dress and said ooo look mommy a princess getting married will she live in the castle now? which we thought was just mega cute.

    That's one of the truly special things about getting married at DisneyWorld, it's all just so right. Everyone we passed said congratulations, we had photos taken as we walked past. Just really brilliant.

    I think if we'd had more people in the wedding party than just the two of us we'd have gone elsewhere though. V&A was great for two people but I think I'd have felt a bit self conscious trying to talk to a more than a few people. The california grill was great for that!

    I think CG would be spectacular but I'm not sure they have like a private room where your wedding party could be. I believe that Citrico's does have one however. I don't think you would go wrong with either choice.
