One of a Kind Dining – Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot
While planning our ADR’s for our October 2010 trip, I knew one thing was for sure, we were going to Le Cellier one way or another. Many Disney World enthusiasts suggested the restaurant and just by looking at the menu, I knew I had to try it out. The thing about Le Cellier is that their food is so awesome that it is hard to get a reservation! It is a highly sought after dining experience in Epcot, and really needs to be booked as early as possible so you can try them! You cannot just walk in this place, a reservation is a must!
To find Le Cellier you must go to the Canada Pavilion at Epcot. Once you arrive, you will check in with the host/hostess outside of a beautiful landscaped area with a very small fence around it. Le Cellier is located near the O’Canada! attraction and also has a Kidcot Funstop area. When we went, we checked in and headed directly to the Kidcot Funstop area until it was time to actually check into the restaurant. The kids were able to color cut outs of Duffy the bear and take them home with us.
When you actually go into the restaurant there is ambient lighting and it is a little cool. It is made to resemble a wine cellar that would be seen in a classy Canadian Chatauesque hotel. Our wait was 10 minutes at the most and was seated in a location close to the kitchen area. We were given our pretzel bread as soon as we sat down, let me tell you, it is AMAZING!! I am not much into pretzels usually, but this bread was so yummy! I dipped my bread into some Canadian cheese soup that I got for our 2 year old. She didn’t eat much and she decided to try it my way as well!
When the server took our orders, our wait was minimal, the kids were given activity menus and crayons for the wait. Everyone got something a little different. I ordered a Filet Mignon with Mushroom Risotto, my hubby ordered a Steak with Yukon Gold Potatoes, our son ordered Steak and Fries, and our toddler ate Meaty Macaroni and Fries. All of the food was amazing! My filet was cooked to perfection, it didn’t require any steak sauce as the taste was magnificent. Upon cutting the steaks, they were very juicy and succulent. The sides were delicious, especially the mushroom risotto.
Since we were on the dining plan, we ordered desserts! My hubby and I both got chocolate moose (yes it is moose, you will see why!), our son had an ice cream sundae topped his way, and our daughter got fruit salad. The chocolate moose was smooth and divine! The chocolate creaminess was so good it put a smile on our faces! My son was raving about the ice cream sundae and our daughter loves fruit, so she was a happy little girl!
Bottom line, Le Cellier is a MUST DO!! The atmosphere, staff, food, the whole package is just wonderful! If you love good food, you need to at least go here once. All it will take is one try and you will want to come back each trip, I guarantee it!
Le Cellier is now a signature dining experience as of March 1,2011. If you use the dining plan it will cost 1 credit for lunch or 2 credits for dinner. For more information call (407) WDW- DINE or contact your travel agent!
