i'm presuming i can't have the lobstah on the dining plan
I don't see why not.
It s a 2 credit table service after all.No different to Jack ordering the most expensive $30 steak on a 1 credit.
I didn't think there were any exceptions in the DDP?
I'm sure someone will know for sure but fingers crossed!
You sure can. We loved the restaurant and the lobster was so good. Make sure you have the almond crusted cheesecake too. IMO it is the best dessert in WDW.

Nice food, shame about the restaurant itself.
What's wrong with the restaurant? Never been there
yeah what's up? decided to pay out of pocket for candelight processional package so i have a spare 2 credits...
Well if you do a search you'll find a lot of threads on the subject but basically, the service and quality of the restaurant are highly variable. In recent years, things have gone down even further meaning that although the occasional nice experience is possible, a poor experience is more likely.
(and when I say poor service, I mean REALLY REALLY awful service)
What a shame
It was lovely when we went in 2006, had a brilliant server who made sure everything was perfect for us.
Us too. We had a lovely meal with a seat by the window, saw the water pageant and had a very nice evening.
Since then we've had nothing but awful experiences, mainly with terrible servers.
I remember reading some stuff. That's a shame that the servers are bad :-( GF is so nice.
I think that's partly why it feels SOOOOO bad. GF is so elegant and everyone is SO wonderful, to receive poor service is very jarring.
that's why i won't be going to the California Grill
We were there last year and had the exception to the rule I guess. The food was great as well as the service, I believe we had surf and turf! I don't know if the menu will be different for a special event though.
I have to say that I went in 2010 and the service was impeccable. My friend went in June and said the same. I would be very disappointed if it went badly next year. I had not heard this before and read a good few forums. Such a pity really as the setting is gorgeous.
I find the place to be very much "hit or miss", but sadly I`ve experienced more "misses" than "hits" there.
On our last visit a few weeks ago, the server that we know very well was fully booked for our ADR time, so we were assigned another server who looked after us very well I must admit.
BUT [and this was the first time ever that it has happened at WDW with us], my DW`s entree was almost stone cold when it was delivered so we sent it back and, full marks to the chef, he prepared a new meal rather than just warming up the one that she had been given.
The following day we had dinner at the Blue Zoo which has a much more "up market and adult" feel to it, and there we had a far superior meal, with excellent service and at a much lower cost to boot.
Just back from WDW went to NARCOOSEES had an excelent meal would definately go back again
By the way had a great scottish beer by INNIS AND GUNN recmended by BRIAN
Are you talking about the server Brian? Im sure that is the name of the guy who served us. He was excellent. He told us of his travels throughout the UK and in Edinburgh in particular.
BRIAN WAS THE PERSON WHO CHECKED ME IN I KNOW THEMANAGER IS CALLED BRIAN ALSO
