Hi everyone...which Disney restaurant would you choose.. Napa Rose or Carthays Circle? And do you need advance reservations for them? Thanks! :)
I would personally choose Napa Rose. I looked at Carthay Circles menu and nothing looked all that great to me. I dined at the chefs counter at Napa Rose and it was very good. A reservation is definitely a good idea. Enjoy whichever you choose :) - Nicole 380.2 #572 12-27-12 8:18PMLike(2)Reply
That's a hard choice. Napa rose has superior food, yet the food at Carthay is fantastic yet the decor is more appealing to me because of the nostalgic feel to it. And Carthay has amazing house biscuits. No wait I meant outstanding. - madsdad 1868.2 #88 12-27-12 8:36PMLike(2)Reply
The Chef's Counter at Napa Rose is fantastic - the food is indescribable and the experience is unforgettable. If it is within your budget, I would do Chef's Counter or Napa Rose, in general. You will not be disappointed. - EpicDio 460.3 #453 12-27-12 9:42PMLike(1)Reply
Carthay is Park food...The head Chef Andrew Sutton has really had his work cut out for him on getting this place in order with what he has and some things are good but its in no comparison to the food quality, unique dining choices and level of culinary experience that you will find at Napa Rose...The menu is unique at both places however you will find that if you are looking for a finer dining experience and have an adventurous palate, Napa Rose is your place...The menu changes on a weekly basis and is made from the freshest seasonal ingredients and cooked to perfection...There is a reason why its ranked each year at the top of all lists of Restaurants in Orange County - Dave 13397.9 #2 12-27-12 9:42PMLike(1)Reply
I have yet to get to Carthay but I will tell you that my experience at Napa Rose lived up to the expectation and will be the top of my Disney dining experiences, at least until the day I get to ride the 33 elevator up to the lunch buffet and live the dream! - cynDOLEwhip 1175.5 #146 12-27-12 10:16PMLike(1)Reply
Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions! I really appreciate all of your input! I'm going to try to get a reservation for Napa Rose chefs counter! It's sounds perfect for our celebration! - lovetrustpixidust 5.8 #15886 12-27-12 10:04PMLikeReply
