Summary

Napa rose may be the best restaurant in Orange County and has been at the top of most critics' lists since its debut. top talent in the kitchen and in the dining room, beautiful space with panoramic views and a wine cellar second to none, make this an incomparable gustatory experience. every server has earned sommelier status, a designation that takes years of study and practical experience with wine and wine-making. look for unusual ingredients (tahitian vanilla, smoked sturgeon, truffled quail eggs, lemongrass, almond oil) married to top-notch staples (Colorado lamb, Berkshire pork, pheasant breast), all deftly handled by a world-class kitchen crew. and although staff are very accommodating in the usual Disney manner, this is definitely not an adventure for the kids. Napa Rose should be on every adult's Disney bucket list, a must-do at least once. If the full menu is too rich for your blood sit in the cozy lounge and order appetizers.

Setting and Atmosphere

Napa rose is Disneyland resort's flagship fine-dining experience. the Grand Californian's Craftsman theme is carried into this premier room with sweeping views of Disney California adventure from virtually every table. a large, open demonstration kitchen lets you watch the magic happen, and wine, in all of its glory, is displayed at every turn. Fine linens, china, and flatware are the norm. this is an absolutely gorgeous room with food and service to match.

House Specialties

The menu, rotated seasonally, focuses on the cuisine of California's wine region, ranchlands, farm belts, and coastline. wine finds its way onto most of the menu in sauces, reductions, infusions, and dressings. the grilled angus new York strip steak features an understated cabernet reduction; ocean trout is crusted with cashews and served with baked apples and sauteed coastal mushrooms.

Other Recommendations

Game meat, ranch and free-range beef and poultry, and the chef's prix fixe Vintner's table are constantly changing and always exciting.
