Location

Disney California Adventure in Buena Vista Street

Entree range

$28-$44

Summary

The chefs of Napa Rose developed the Southern Californian menu. A downstairs lounge serves appetizers and quick meals, while the larger upstairs restaurant takes reservations. A three-course fixed-price World of Color menu is also offered (Lunch $39 adults, $18 kids; Dinner $59 adults, $39 kids) which includes access to the prime center-stage viewing section. Terrace seating is available.

Though service is sometimes unexpectedly inattentive, is is among the finest restaurant found inside the gates of any American theme park (including the vaunted Club 33) and one of the best dining experiences at Disneyland Resort outside of its sibling at the Grand Californian, at a slightly less astronomical price point. If you don't want an entire meal, stop in the downstairs lounge for a classic craft cocktail and spicy sushi roll or charcuterie tray. Or for an educational look at the historic photographs that festoon the wall, take the free tour offered daily 10:30 a.m.

Setting and Atmosphere

Intimate booths, wood paneling, and candle sconces evoke the setting of the opening night in 1937 of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

House Specialties

Crispy firecracker duck wings with chili sauce, grilled Angus steak, Skuna Bay salmon, and fried biscuits with Cheddar, bacon, and jalapeno.

Other Recommendations

For lunch try the 'ultimate' beef sandwich or strozzapreti pasta; for dinner, try the fish ceviche with avocado or heirloom tomato salad. Salmon is served mid-rare with 'forbidden' black rice. For dessert, order the fried banana split Monte Cristo sundae or warm country pie. The kids menu offers fresh fish with veggies, mini crispy tacos, or pasta.
