    The one place we will probably not go to again is Artist's Point.

    Not that we had a bad experience - to the contrary, everything was fine. It's just that we live in the Pacific Nortwest and to be quite honest the overall atmosphere and menu is something we can get anytime we want and it just wasn't anything special to us. It was nice to be able to get some favorite local (to us) wines, even if I did choke at the prices.

    If I want to get a gourmet Northwest meal in a rustic mountain lodge, I can drive an hour to Timberline Lodge (the primary inspiration for the Wilderness Lodge) and have a true 5 star meal. Likewise, we don't stay at WL for similar reasons - it's a beautiful place and very true to the real thing, but it's just too much like home for us want to stay there on our vacation.

    But then, that's what I like about WDW. What's different, unique and enjoyable for me may not be for someone else. And vice versa.

    Kouzzina -- just not our type of food flavoring. Atmosphere was neat though, with the open kitchen...

    Mickey's Back Yard Bar-B-Que -- Picnic tables and crowds elbowing for everything was just not our idea of fun....Maybe if we had kids to join in the dancing with the characters...Better ribs at Flame Tree!!!

    Kona Cafe -- Food was OK, but (and it just might be the evening we were there) the atmosphere lacked...Would MUCH rather go to 'Ohana.

    Ours would be Rose and Crown. We were there in August 09. LeCellier lost our reservation and called around to try to accommodate us and the R&C was the only restaurant able to. We quickly found out why. From beginning to end, we were there for 4 hours and we never received half of our food or our dessert. The table next to us was sat and served 3 times in the time we were there. The manager was more rude than our server. I have never left with out paying the bill, but we did here. We were on the dining plan, so I promptly went to guest relations and made sure we were not charged a meal, especially since we were about to go back to our resort to eat at the food court! My husband and I had gone in'98 on our honeymoon and had one of the best meals of our trip there, so I was completely taken aback by the disgraceful service!

    I know its touted as one of the best things ever but I've never been treated so badly as I was at California Grill. The server was just angry we were there, it was the resturant I fought to hard to get us into for Mom's birthday cause we heard such good things, the service was appauling, food was stone cold, we saw our server I think twice. He never had one nice thing to say, not even a smile, we talked to a manager and she was just as bad as he was...We ended up calling the resturant line because we were both waitresses at the time and knew there surely had to be someone to hold accountable for us being treated barely above bugs, but noone had answers...I ended up in tears by the time we got back to our hotel while Mom tried to lie and tell me it didn't bother her, shes waited tables close to 15 years and I did it for 6, I knew it bothered her. Broke my heart, even now years later I still have a dislike of the entire contemporary resort because I know "those" people who were so awful to us were there at one point. I honestly wouldn't recomend that place to my enemy.

    OTHERWISE...ABC comisary was the worst CS we ever did, but we got to watch the Star Wars show while we tried to force down that icky food lol I wish they would do that place into a Star Wars themed cantina resturant like Pizza Planet but with the Blue elephant guys on the walls! ...sorry I'm abit of a Geek

    Oh, I know what you mean!! My husband is a log home builder and we live in the mountains of Alberta - and we feel exactly the same away about poor old WL.

    Le Cellier. The wait was long, the food was just medicocre. The whole reason we went there was DH was Canadian, and wanted the rest of us to experience Canadian food, but he said it wasn't even close.

    The Yacht Club, before they changed it to Portobello. DH got veal and it was so salty... everything we got was gross.. We haven't been there in like 5 years, but I have no desire to ever go back.

    I would add Big River Grille to my list. Very mediocre. Years ago, I liked the one in Chattanooga, Tennessee, but this one pales (I think they're part of the same group).

    Ohana

    I know it's a favorite of a lot of people here, but we just didn't care for it. We don't like coriander so the wings weren't good to us, and the steak was really fatty and gross. Plus, I got horribly sick the next morning (stayed in the room the whole day, and was pretty much done for the last 3 days of our trip). I don't know for a fact that it was the food, as my husband had been sick two days before, but I'm unable to convince my stomach otherwise.

    Also wouldn't go back to the Liberty Tree Tavern for dinner. I still don't know if that gravy was supposed to be turkey or beef - it was gross!

    I know what you mean. I got the stomach flu really bad the day we ate at Cindy's. Even though I KNOW it wasn't the food, the thought of being there again makes my stomach turn. Weird!

    PS - sounds from the posts above like the ABC Commissary is a universal thumbs down!

    Cape May for dinner (love the breakfast) and the Sci-Fi Dine-In. We had advance dining reservations for the Sci-Fi Dine-In and still had to wait over an hour to get seated. Not repeating that experience.

    I don't know that there's any I absolutely wouldn't go back to, but the least likely are Tony's and Marrakesh. Tony's because the food was mediocre. And for the Restaurant Marrakesh, we went during a free dining period and it was horribly crowded. We had an ADR, but still had to wait quite a while. It was warm outside so everyone was trying to wait inside the small air-conditioned waiting area. Unfortunately they kept needing more chairs for the restaurant itself and would come take them from the waiting area, leaving a crowd of people standing around. Then when we were finally seated, it was at a table crammed back into a corner, far away from the belly-dancing and so close to other tables that it was difficult for our servers to wait on us. Can you tell this experience left a very negative image? It's a shame, because the food was not bad.

    We stopped eating at H&V after three tries. The food is very plain, much like Crystal Palace, but the outlet was just filthy. Food was being mixed among the trays by guests and the staff was not doing a good job of keeping up on maintaining the line. The last time we were there I don't think we even finished our first plate before leaving.

    I agree with MNNHFLTX in that I wouldn't say never, just not very likely. I am slightly conflicted but still think I have to put Bistro De Paris on my list.

    It's not that there wasn't a lot of good in my experience, though. The service was good, and my server was well versed on the menu, offered great suggestions when asked for advice, and was quite attentive. Also, some of my meal was excellent. My gratine' crab pasta appetizer was memorable, but the rest of the meal was just ok. Not bad, but not amazing as I expected. With the look, pricing and feeling of exclusivity I wanted to be wowed by the food, and I just wasn't.

    I think it should be done once by anyone who is a foodie or a WDW fan, but the only feeling I got was like I was a kid and the grown up's table. Not sure I'll do it again.
