    If I could only pick 1, it would be LTT. It means so much to Dh and I that I just can't do a trip without it :D

    you know we've not been there for years but I used to love it. One trip, I was so ill that all I could face was LTT because the food was "proper" :lol: rather than the burgers and chips everywhere else

    Isn't it great that we are all so different? I really didn't like the meal we had there and wouldn't be in a rush to go back :D

    I honestly don't know at this point if it is the food we are rushing back for, if that makes any sense. It just means Disney to us and some of the time we've spent there and decisions we have made there make it feel almost like our own kitchen table at home :)

    We think the food is good and haven't been disappointed (thank goodness!), but we wouldn't miss dinner there for the world :D

    Tough q... I have to say it depends on the circunstances.

    It would be CRT for the girls, but The Brown Derby for the food hahahaha

    I like the idea of no kids after 8, but as it is we rarely eat that late anyway.

    At CG, John? You would recommend her? I'd love to have someone to ask for in October, as we LOVED the experience at California Grill, but were less than impressed with our server.

    Some things just feel like home. For some their favorite meal would be something fancy and for others it would be how right it felt

    We really like it. But I guess I have to say that we are not super fussy when it comes to food. V&A would not be something we would ever do as we like simple and good food, nothing too fancy :)

    I know I say this every time but me too! I'd place a hefty bet that I would be the fussiest/plainest eater you've ever met. Despite the v&a menu looking all fancy smancy, when it comes down to it, you can have a very simple but quality meal there. I know it's expensive and so it's tempting to look at the menu and think no way but if you ever get the chance to give it a shot, I guarantee you'll be surprised.

    I always hear wonderful things about V&A yet I cannot fathom spending that much money on food. I am a fairly adventurous eater though but I do not like having to google things to know what I'm eating

    We will do V&A someday, we're both agreed. But it will be a "special" occasion :)

    I always feel Im being uber-defensive about v&a which I so don't want to be but here I go anyway :lol:

    We don't see it was just food, we treat it as a special evening. I've spent more than this on a burger&chips in the context of an expensive vegas dinner show ;-) so this is an evening's special event.

    In terms of googling the menu items, I sometimes think that restaurants go all out to make themselves seem fancy to justify higher price tags by deliberately obfuscating the menu. So no, I don't much like that myself. However, where I'm ok about it is when the item listed is a good description and it's just my own personal lack of knowledge that stops me knowing what it is. I do expect to be ok to ask for more details as well and not have someone get all snotty about it ;-)

    I kinda feel v&a passes on those points

    For me, it has to be the Flying Fish. I think I have tried most of the restaurants mentioned above, but FF still remains where we had our stand out meals in 2010 and 2013.
