Bunch at Disney’s California Grill was on my wish list of new things to do. On a recent trip I had the opportunity to book reservations, so I knew I had to try it.
Dinner at California Grill is one of my favorites. Since I had such a good experience having brunch at Narcoosee’s – I figured this one had to be equally as good.
When we arrived, there was an entire section of the bar with mimosas waiting. Little did we know that these were bottomless and soon found out that our waiter would be bringing us new ones before the first one was done.
There was a bloody mary bar available for an additional cost if that was your choice of drink. While they looked delicious, we decided to stick with our mimosas.
We reviewed the menu to make our entree selections. My sister Becky selected the Chef’s Frittata and I chose the Grilled Hanger Steak.
Once our entrée order was placed, we were able to visit the self-serve stations. There was real variety of things to choose from.
I’m not a fan of seafood, so I tasted everything that I thought I might like. The food was good, really flavorful and visually appealing.
When our entrees arrived, I was regretting having the second helping of bread and mimosas, but I powered through. My steak was delicious, cooked exactly as I had asked with no pink in it.
Becky enjoyed her frittata and said the potatoes were exceptional.
We took a small break before ordering tea and waited for our dessert plate to come. If you’ve read my blog before, you know I’m a huge fan of dessert – but I have to admit, I was underwhelmed.
The plate didn’t look as yummy as the dinner dessert does. While I tasted everything on the plate, there was nothing that made me say “wow, I need to have that again”.
When the bill arrived our total for brunch was $165 USD including our Tables in Wonderland discount.
Since I’m a gal who is all about dessert, Narcoosee’s was my favorite of the two, based solely on the desserts. I think on my next trip I’ll save California Grill for dinner so that I can enjoy the Chocolate Pudding Cake.
