    The queues were justified as the place was lively, had great food and great drinks. The cocktails were great, got you in the mood, service was great - made you feel very much at home, food was varied and tasty. Options for kids and vegetarians was very good, everyone really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend to others - but definitely need to book as it gets very busy!

    We went to this restaurant twice in a week. The first time we had a nice quiet table outside. The food was excellent and the service really good. We told the waiter that we weren't in a rush and he delivered each course with a reasonable gap inbetween. On our second visit I asked for a table outside near the entertainment. They honoured my request with what must have been the best table in the house. After a moment though I noticed the Mosquitos! Loads of them as you are right on the waterfront and it was a very hot day. As I am allergic to mozzie bites I sheepishly went back inside and ask if they could reseat us inside. No problem! even though they were very busy I was not made to feel a trouble. Just take your mozzie spray and enjoy.

  • Cruise ship food

    Dined on 3/31/2014
    We were seated right away with our reservation. The scene, servers, and drinks were good but he food was not. We orders 4 separate meals and they all showed up less than 10 minutes later. It was obvious by the temperature and taste they were prepared well ahead of time, just like a cruise ship. For the price I would rather go to House of Blues or walk to Buffalo Wild Wings. Will never eat hear again.

    *Had a reservation, but still had to wait a while for a table. Server was EXTREMELY friendly, but quite overwhelmed and hard to catch until the middle of our meal when tables were finally emptying. Ordered a platter, skirt steak was wonderful! But then we found not one, not two, but THREE inch long pieces of bamboo skewer in one of the flautas. Food got sent back, manager came up and explained that she didn't have anything like that in her kitchen so she didn't know where it came from. Others in our party had ordered burgers. The burgers had bamboo skewers holding them together. I had to borrow one of their skewers to send back with the server to show the doubting manager that she did in fact have the exact inedible item I found in my food.

    Not sure how OpenTable can support a restaurant that does not honor a timed reservation. Arrived at 7:57 for an 8:00 reservation. There were 50 to 60 people in line waiting to get in. I said to my wife that we were lucky to have a reservation as this must be a popular restaurant. I went to the hostess stand and was told that all of these people also had reservations and to get in line. Never again!!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/3/2014
    My group of 6 people (3 adults and 3 kids) all really enjoyed the food. The skirt steak was outstanding. Servings were filling. Drink lists were good. Dessert was late getting to us as their computer system had issues and needed to be fixed so no orders could be placed until it was back up and running. Once it was fixed all was fine. The only dissapointment was the wait time to be seated. We had made reservations and still had to wait at least 30 minutes to get in. Why make reservations if you still have to wait in line? Other than that it was a great place to eat and I would recommend to anyone.

    while you would think that disneyworld would host a kid friendly environment, the amount of alcohol consumed (obviously before ariving to the restaurant) made for an interesting specticle. That aside, the appitizers were great, the food was fair price and the waitresses were friendly.

    Very interesting and varied menu. Most dishes are on the spicy side, but a few can be found for the milder taste. I look forward to going back again and trying something new. The service was excellent, and the place was quite crowded - so kudos to the staff with keeping up. Food was quite good and I'd definitely recommend it. However, my one complaint - (and it was VERY) annoying, is the ceilling lighting in the main dining area. It constantly changed color, so the light level changed to such a degree that it was so distracting, I couldn't wait to get out of there. Next time, I'd request to sit upstairs or outside.

    While waiting for our dinner, our server brought us complimentary chips and salsa to apologize for the kitchen being backed up. We had not complained or even noticed that it was taking more time than usual. The honesty from the server made the experience even better than it already was. I will definitely return to this restaurant.

We had a terrific corn appetizer, my ribs were delicious and we shared a really yummy chocolate cake for dessert. It was very noisy, but heck, it's Downtown Disney on a Friday night! I would go back.

    Located on the water in Downtown Disney, this restaurant has a nice outdoor dining area. There was live music in the area right next to the outdoor dining area, which provided a festive atmosphere. The food was very good. Our party of 6 shared a few appetizers, all of which were delicious. The entrees were delicious as well. I had a seafood entrée that included salmon, which was perfectly cooked, and a very refreshing shrimp ceviche. I also tasted the burrito, which was also very good. Also, we enjoyed a nice bottle of ZD cabernet. I would definitely return on a future trip.

    We had a 6:30pm reservation but that doesn't mean that they have a table for you. We still had to wait until a table became available, it just meant that we went to the top of the waiting list. All the windows and doors were open and it was a cool night so it was pretty chilly inside. The food was decent and the server was attentive though.

    We were seated fairly quickly and had a great server, Stephen. He was attentive & super friendly. The chicken sandwich was tasty and served piping hot. We were outside and it started to rain. Stephen found us indoor seating almost immediately. Great service, food, music! It was loud though so probably not a good choice for a quiet night!

    Only my second time dining here, but I think I'll be back more often now. It's a nice relaxed atmosphere, though the live music can be a *bit* too loud. The servers were very good. My medium-rare steak arrived pretty close to Raw, but the server asked me to cut into it to make sure while she was still there, so when I saw that, she had no problem taking it back for a few more minutes of cooking. When it was returned, it was very very good. Our drinks were refilled many times without problems. Prices aren't too bad (remember, it's on Disney property, so adjust your expectations accordingly).

    I'm not a foodie in the slightest. But I must say, it's quite hard to mess up enchiladas, rice and beans. Sometimes about it tasted so generic and bland, that I actually stopped eating when I wasn't even full! My enchiladas were bland, my girl's fish tacos looked like fish sticks in a tortilla... oh and can't forget the watery guacamole! On the upside, I think this place is super energetic and has a fun bar scene... but don't go here thinking you're going to get an amazing meal. I will say, they have HUGE margaritas & frozen drinks, and super fun music! It would be a good place if it's a big group of people looking to drink into the night.

    This was our first time here for lunch. The food was delicious even though a bit pricey. The three fish tacos were very good with the corn salsa. The two arepas were delicious, could have just had a few of those for a lunch. Skip the macaroni and cheese bites, they were probably frozen not made fresh and tasted similar to boxed mac and cheese. Overall we enjoyed our lunch.
