Depends....

I have seen plenty of children here, behaving appropriately, having a good time. It really depends on you and the children. I would think ages 5 and 8 would be no problem unless they are particularly overtired - because you cannot make a last minute adjustment (cancel) for temperament - there is a cancellation policy (I can't remember if it 24 or 48 hours notice - or $10 or $20 per person).

My suggestion is to try it and see how it goes. If it doesn't work out, just don't repeat it. My guess is that you'll be fine - and love it.

My boyfriend and are planning on eating here during our vacation July 9th-14th. I noticed the restaurant closes at 10p.m. and this is when Wishes fireworks begin. Is there a way to still eat our meal and enjoy the fireworks? I was considering a 9pm ADR and then enjoy fireworks after our meal.


Edit: I spoke with the ADR staff and my reservation is at 9:30 p.m.! They offered me 9:50p.m. but I felt bad. I don't wanna hold up the restaurant staff. Yay, I'm thrilled for our 9:30 meal.

I have been there to watch the fireworks that late, and the restaurant is still going full steam. If they offer a 9:50 reservation, they will staff to service the guests - in other words, you won't be holding them up - they are used to it and plan for it. I used to work in the restaurant business some time ago and usually they plan for last reservation +2 hours for the staff. I wouldn't worry about it!

Your pictures are beautiful! I can't show DBF though because he will get sad... especially the pictures of the Tuna Three Ways... he might break into tears. We have been back for over a month and he is still talking about how good of an app that was. We ate there 2 nights in a row because he had to have it again! I had that strawberry meringue (sp?) dessert you posted a picture of and it was fabulous (well... actually everything we had there was fabulous)!

Chocolate Cake - taste test

Yes, it is as good as it looks. Worthy of note, though - many of the signature restaurants had some variation on this cake - most of which were quite good.

All of the sushi is great, but the yellowfin tuna is my favorite. Hopefully, you live near a Southwest direct flight - they make long weekend getaways possible. Sounded crazy to me the first time I thought about it, but we've been doing it!! Armed with only the DDP and PI pass, we "made do" between annual passes!!

Hope it meets (or exceed) your expectations. Let us know!

-------------------------------------

BTW - all servers are good - but I thought Gary even better than that! Never hurts to ask - although I don't know if he has a window station (if that is what you plan to request).

My suggestion.....
  • All of the staff is very friendly and accessible.
  • You can request to sit in front of the sushi bar if you are REALLY into sushi
  • Even if you elect NOT to sit there I recommend taking a stroll over to visit Yoshe at her work station. She may be too busy to chat, but you can watch her work and take her picture. If she is not too busy, someone can take a picture of her WITH you. She is a real food artist.

P.S. - You may want to make a second reservation for the "other" week - you may find that you want to go twice!!

We're back! We had an amazing meal at CG. My boyfriend had the filet, and I had the red snapper with coconut curry sauce. We shared the 4 cheese flatbread with pesto sauce and sundried tomatoes. We could have been seated right at 9:30pm but opted to wait 20 minutes for a window seat, it was well worth it.
