    Over the years, I think I have done about half of the TS restaurants but this year we have gone for quite a few that we havent done before. I have of course looked at lots of reviews before choosing and have geared this year's choices towards what I want and my adult kids' choices - especially their love of fish (included in other restaurants not listed below). Could I ask what you all honestly think of the ones on the list (never eaten in any of them) before I decide whether to 'tweak' our choices?

    Cape May - Dinner

    Les Chefs de France - Dinner

    Sanaa - Dinner

    Liberty Tree Tavern - Dinner

    Be Our Guest - Dinner

    Via Napoli - Dinner

    Cape May - I'm a native New Englander and I was terribly disappointed. Probably will not go back, though others think highly of it

    Le Chefs de France - only done it once as part of Candlelight Processional Package, was not impressed but menu seems to have improved and we have it back on our list of places to try.

    Sanaa - Did it shortly after it opened. Mixed reviews, but definitely on our list to try again.

    Liberty Tree Tavern - good basic food, was much more fun when they had the characters

    Be Our Guest - Lovely surroundings. Both DW and I had excellent meals. This place gets mixed reviews from what I am reading. Could be because it is still "cutting its teeth" so to speak

    Via Napoli - haven't done it, but it is on our list of places to try sometime.

    I'm afraid I can only comment on one location on your list. We've been to a few of the others, but it was either for Breakfast or Lunch, not dinner.

    The one I *have* been to for dinner is Liberty Tree Tavern. We quite enjoy this menu, though I agree with John that it was a bit more entertaining when there were characters. I always enjoy the food (even if I have to ASK for cranberry relish) and Jon loves the lemonade (strawberry?) they serve!

    I am slightly worried about Chefs. The only thing I am certain we will like are those profiteroles. Hopefully all will be OK. Sanaa - well I hope it proves better for us that the evening buffet at Boma as we gave it a second chance and disliked it even more second time around. LTT was a strange choice for me as I know the food is basic but it does seem to be 'good basic' at least. Great to hear good reviews on BOG. Thanks for your input John. :yes:

    No cranberry relish? Dont they know that every day is Christmas/Thanksgiving? Im quite looking forward to it Becca.

    Good news again. Thank you.

    When in September Robert? We will be there on the 21st September.

    At LTT dinner, you have to request the cranberries. They are not automatically served. Probably too much waste. Love the dinner here.

    I love dinner at Cape May. Breakfast too.

    Haven't been to the others. Except chefs for lunch.

    Love Cape May. Breakfast or dinner. Maine owns my heart, and I lived in Rockland... they do a nice job. It's one of the cleanest restaurants on property and they keep the buffet sparkling. The chef will cook whatever you need if you let them know (allergies, food preference, etc).

    Les Chefs. Ummmm... depends on the day. We've had lovely meals there, and not so great ones. We order a variety of things, salade niçoise, charcuterie, cheese plate, and share.

    Sanaa. We've heard it's come a long way. We weren't thrilled when we went. Had a chance to go again this year but the menu just didn't speak to us.

    Liberty and Be Our Guest: Never been.

    Via Napoli: I RAVE about this place!!! The pizza (order one of the signature pizzas) is the best you'll get in Fl. It's so good that we found a supplier for the flour and ordered some over the internet!

    Enjoy, Mags!

    Cape May, we really likedit. Food, atmosphere, service, etc...

    Sanaa, very different food, however, we thought it was very good, plus the restaurant is super nice and you cant beat looking at the animals while you eat!

    Liberty Tree Tavern, basic but delicious food!! Like eating at grandma's :)

    I think I'm ready to give them all a go. LTT appealed to my kids as they love their meat. I showed them a few photos of the loaded plates and that did it for them. Can anyone tell me if the plates come with gravy on them or is it served separately. My dd (strange girl) hates gravy so that would be her dinner ruined if the gravy was poured over the food. Thanks for everyone's input.

    Actually all if the meal is served on separate platters. Well the meat and stuffing are on the same plate. But gravy is in a little boat

    Yes, it's all served separately, family style. And they are happy to bring you cranberry relish, you just have to ask :)

    Also, they'll bring you more of any specific thing you ask for...so if your kiddos want more "meat" just ask!
