    If it`s a REALLY nice restaurant, then the ultimate is Victoria and Albert`s at the Grand Floridian. It is essential to make a reservation but it is a great venue for that "special" meal.
    Also at the GF is Citrico`s, which again is recommended, and there is also Narcoossee`s there which we enjoyed on our trip recently.
    Alternatively, there is Artist`s Point at the Wilderness Lodge, the Yachtsman`s Steakhouse at the Yacht Club Resort, Jiko`s at Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Flying Fish at the Boardwalk, and the Blue Zoo at the Swan all of which are great dining venues.

    Any of the monorail resorts or the EPCOT resorts could be a good choice. The transportation between the resorts is convenient and easy. Monorail resorts perhaps a bit more convenient.

    You'll still need ADRs for the most part, unless you're visiting during a very slow period.

    We were booked in for the Aloha show at the Poly last year, but it was cancelled due to the rain and storms.:(
    We ended up eating in the restaurant there, which was fantastic, if you time it right, you can watch the fireworks from MK from your table:p015:

    Would also cast a vote for Ohana at the Poly...though you'd not go wrong with Slowhand's suggestions either!

    OK, let's do it this way. These are what I consider the best.

    Grand Floridian - Citrico's, Narcoossee's and the ULTIMATE Victoria and Albert's

    Contemporary - California Grill

    Boardwalk - Spoodles and Flying Fish

    Yacht Club - Yachtsman Steak House

    Animal Kingdom Lodge - JIKO and BOMA

    Wilderness Lodge - Artist's Point

    There are other restaurants in the Disney Deluxe Hotels which are also good but I consider them below those listed.

    I'd say Jiko, but i haven't eaten at any of the grand floridian restaurants yet.
