This upscale restaurant offers a leisurely, quintessentially French meal in quiet, elegant surroundings. And, no, it’s not as stuffy as you might think. The escargot ravioli with parsley cream was a refreshing take on a classic, the filet of beef forestier spot on, and our companions were equally pleased with their picks. We see no values on the optional prixe fixe menu. The wine list is excellent, but pricey.

The food was ok. Having to dress up in Epcot is not very practical after being in the park all day.

This is our go-to for celebrations! We go to WDW often and try to book this only when we are staying at one of the hotels on Crescent Lake. It makes it easier to head back to the hotel and dress up a bit for dinner. The food is very french, and splendidly prepared. Please do yourself a favor and get a sitter. It isn't really a child friendly establishment. It is one of the most special dining experiences you will ever have. Think of it as Victoria & Albert's with training wheels, or a good alternative if you really didn't want to pack a suit. You can't see Illuminations, unless you are there in the dead of winter and all the leaves have dropped from the trees outside the window. If you want to see fireworks from a restaurant, try Tokyo Dining, or California Grille.

Feels like fine dining-I am always sad to feel underdressed. We sneak in the back door of EPCOT and use this as a nice change from the resort dining. It's handy to the lesser used entry, and if you're staying at an EPCOT resort, it's a nice walk before and after dinner. The servers are very kind.

The staff is rude and not friendly, the food has a lot of foam in it and was not to my taste at all. Ate there because I was told front window seating was good for night time Illuminations, only to find that they only have tables for parties of two in front of the windows and they did not offer to add a third chair so we could sit there.

Very pricey, but the food is outstanding & the experience is something you should not miss. Everything we have every eaten here has been upscale and excellent!
