Fixed price, $135 per person or $190 with wine pairings; Chef's Table and Queen Victoria's Room, $200 or $295 with wine pairings.
Setting and Atmosphere
Frette linens, Riedel crystal, Christofle silver. With only 18 tables in the main dining room and Queen Victoria's Room, a new private space with seating for eight, this is the top dining experience at Disney World. A winner of AAA's Five-Diamond Award (the only restaurant in central Florida so honored), Victoria & Albert's is civilized, lavish, and expensive. Waitstaff in the Queen Victoria Room expertly revive the European art of tableside finishes for each dish.
The menu changes daily, but chef Scott Hunnel's favorites include Jamison Farm lamb, Florida seafood, and Japanese Kobe beef. Any of master pastry chef Erich Herbitschek's desserts are divine.
A harpist or violinist entertains from the foyer. But the best show is in the kitchen when you book the Chef's Table, where Chef Hunnel starts the evening with a Champagne toast and crafts a personal menu.
Hunnel and his team prepare modern American cuisine with the best of the best from around the world. While the main dining room and Queen Victoria's Room are whisper-quiet, the convivial Chef's Table is a whole other experience. For foodies, it's a bargain. Note that the Tables in Wonderland discount card is only accepted for standard dining here (not Chef's Table or Queen Victoria Room).
