Yay! So glad to read your review. I never caught BOG when it was open during previews but we did get to tour the dining rooms (and got the Hidden Mickey tour!) I can't wait to eat there in May.

Glad to see another review!

I never quite understood the menu for dinner. You have wonderful apps and entrees but sub par desserts. That makes no sense to me what so ever!

But is a cupcake really dessert?

Oh my gosh, Ro Z!! That's the exact time and date of my ADR too! :D

It is always interested to me to read other reviews of the same foods we ate. I know everyone has different tastes but I also think it says something about the consistency of Disney food. DS and I had both soups and the pork chop for our meal and we were so disappointed. The pork was so salty and dry it was inedible. And we both thought the French Onion soup was bland and no where near as good as Chefs.

The thing we liked most? The chocolate cupcake. Go figure.

I know BOG was in preview-mode and truly believe that the food could have been great one night and awful the next. Or perhaps even the same food on the same night could have varied.

I am glad to read that your meal was good. Gives me hope that maybe some day in the future we will give it another try. I don't think it will be any time soon though!

Great review; very helpful!

We are dining there twice in January. I'll be sure to avoid the cupcakes: what a shame.

Great review, too bad about the cupcakes - the chocolate one looks so good too! I can't wait to try the potato and leek soup if I ever get an ADR...

Great review and pics. Sad news about the cupcakes - maybe it was a fluke? They look so good too.
Can't wait to eat there in May. Just made our ADR this morning.

Ifeel the very same. We ate there last night and it was OK but nothing to get excited about. The onion soup was very bland, and actually the entire meal was just "OK". Really kind of disappointed.
