Our reservation was for 6:45 but at 5:45 we thought we would see if they could take us earlier, DH was starving and wanted to give it a try...I thought I would be shot down with a laugh by the CM but they actually said, Sure we can seat you now. DH said, told you so....I gave him the look that said ....well you know the look it doesnt have to say anything!

We had a great waitress, she was so attentive! There were alot of empty tables, about 5 in our section....Here is the menu





Our waitress brought us out a basket of fresh super hot and delish pretzels and butter





DH opted for a bowl of the cheddar cheese soup, had a green onion and bacon garnish. Todd loved it but I thought it was very rich and heavy and 2 spoonfuls was enough for me. It was great when you dip the pretzels into it!



I had the caesar salad, it was huge, cold, crisp and loaded with thin shavings of parm cheese that melted on your tongue. So good I could eat it every day!



We both ordered the mushroom filet. DH had his medium and I had mine medium rare...they both came out exactly the same and I thought DH would send his back but he ate around the red middle (ha) and gave the good red juicy part to me and I did the same for him...but his filet was 100% better than mine..it was so tender and melted in your mouth, mine was stringy and tough and not the best....it was good but nothing like his. I forgot how rich this dish it, the risotto was awesome but super heavy on the mushroom flavor so if you do not like mushrooms do not order this! You can sub the risotto for mashed potatoes which we saw alot of people doing.

The first one is Todds and the second one is mine





Despite my less than perfect filet we really liked this place, DH says Jiko is still number one for him but LC comes in second. We didnt get dessert here because we wanted to go to France or Norway...coming up next!

We waddled over to France and had a tough decision...what to drink? We each had a Nuvo...gawsh I love these wonderful things!



In line at the France bakery nothing really stood out to us but I snapped a few pics anyway.















So then we head over to Norway....

At Norway I went picture crazy, they had a lot of new items since our Oct visit.































I decided on the cappaccino cheesecake. It was blah..no taste at all, no coffee taste no cheesecake taste...the bottom was a flavorless cake, the middle a flavorless mousse topped with a flavorless cheesecake.



DH ordered the rice cream. It was thick and pasty, the rice was hard and the topping was very very gloopy....not how we usually get it.



So desserts were a bust, and here I sit still craving something sweet!

Our day tomorrow was DH's decision...we have a couples 80 minute massage at the Grand Floridian at 8am and we decided to keep our late breakfast at Chef Mickeys, I really hope we make it! The Poly said we can stay until 1 and then we will go over to DTD, do some shopping and have a late lunch before getting on the road at 3pm to go home...boo hoo.

I will not update until I get home so stick around.

We have been kicking around coming back in May.. I want to come back in early May but DH says June...ick..too hot then and the FLower show is over with. Maybe we can compromise and come back the last week of May?

Have a good night all!

Sorry that the Cheesecake wasn't better. I saw the picture of that and thought that I would have to try it, after reading your review though I will be skipping it. What a bummer though, it could have been really good. I'm really glad that you had a good time at Le Cellier. I am now sure that we will be going there instead of the Yachtsman. I will miss your dining review. Tell our hubby that you need to come back in May so that you can continue your food research and keep the dissers happy. Thanks so much for taking time out of our trip for us. I love reading about all of your dining experiances.

I hate mushrooms, and always get the cream cheese mashed potatos--they are heavenly. Sorry your piece of steak wasn' as good as Todd's, but glad you shared. And hope you have a great last day and look forward to the last of the reviews.

Clarification please..... On my list of drinks to try, I've written down Peach Schnapps Oolong Tea, which I found in one of your reviews. Is that the same as the Peach Snap? I'm hoping I can get it at dinner in Nine Dragons. If not, I'll try it later that night or the next day.

I'm very curious about the Nuvo. I started to get it a couple weeks ago, but chickened out. Would you mind describing it for me?

Thanks for the Tony's review. I'm looking forward to our lunch there now. It looks & sounds better than I expected from all the bad reviews. The Norway bakery pics were great too. We usually go to Boulangerie Patisserie. Like you, we were a bit disappointed last time. I think it's because we've "been there & done that" so many times. I think we'll give Kringla Bakeri og Cafe a try on our next visit.

Oh The PITHIVIERS is a MUST DO! for me.

Last trip I met a girl that worked in the patiseriere waiting on line to purchase. I asked what she was getting and she said "oh that Pithiviers is delicious. It is a perfect recreation and reminds me of home"

So I had one.
Then I had another the next day
And another the day after that.
It was that delicious. An Almond treat of goodness (and I don't even really like almonds but this is yummy) GO BACK AND TRY IT!

They add a small bit of sparkling wine to the vodka mixture in this to give it that cute little fizz. I think this is a tasty drink but I would really caution anyone against trying it at Epcot - at last check they're selling it for $15 per glass which is ridiculous considering that you can buy a large bottle for $25 at the grocery store or from on-line retailers.

I'm all for vacation splurges but I'm not paying that kind of mark-up on something that I can buy right here at home.

It's the perfect girly drink, though, isn't it? I wish they'd had stuff like this when my friends and I were all getting married - it would be a great drink to serve over ice at a bridal shower.

Enjoy your last day Nicki and don't despair ... there are more trips looming on your horizon.

15 for a glass?!! I love WDW price jack ups! i got a 200ml bottle for $14 (that includes lovely MD tax )
It is a great girly drink even the bottle is pretty and girly it looks like a bottle of perfume! yet men love to drink it as well.. it takes a real man to drink a sparkling pink drink

I am amazed at the dessert/pastry selections in Norway! Whenever we have been in there, its been late in the day and the selection was very limited. Our standby is cannoli from Italy as a result, but I'll be taking a gander through this spot for sure! Too bad to hear the cappucino cheesecake wasn't the best, that was what I had my eye on

I had to lol when I read that Todd still doesn't know that the meatballs are made of lamb.

Have a safe trip home.
