We began our reservation by waiting for about 10-15 minutes to be seated for our 6:40pm meal. Once seated, I was surprised how loud and busy the restaurant was. I don’t know why I had the silly notion that it would be zen like! This…
This will look about the same as previous trips. Disney has replaced the French Meadow Bakery brownies and cookies with OMG brownies and cookies. This is a big disappointment to me, since the OMG products have dairy! Now the dessert selections on property seem to have been cut in half for the gluten free dairy free crowd. At Biergarten, they brought us chocolate rice candy bars from Rice Dream, instead. My daughter can handle some dairy, so she has brownies. The chef gave us more than we needed for this one meal, which was very nice of him. We enjoyed our dinner, as always. Love those pickled veggies!
During the Food and Wine Fest, we stopped in here for a safe place to get a gluten free, dairy free meal. Once again, this is a very slow spot for ordering food. Wait in line to order, wait for a manager, and continue to stand and wait while your order is prepared. The upside is that they can prepare the food safely, so it is worth the wait.
My daughter had a gluten free (not dairy free) mac and cheese with grapes, and a chocolate chip cookie from French Meadow Bakery.
I opted for a grilled chicken (see below), which comes on a flat bread. Instead, I asked for it to be served on a gluten free bun. They left off the aioli, though I believe it is gluten free and dairy free from reading the ingredients. The chef was uncertain, so she omitted it. We have had the bagged grapes in the past, and they had an odd plastic flavor. This year, they tasted very fresh and good. We enjoyed our grapes and we saved the cookies and brownies for later. Liberty Tavern used to have a help yourself bar for tomatoes and pickles, but this has been removed.
I had heard again and again that we needed to try this dining establishment, so I joined those crowds who book 6 months in advance to give it a try. We started with EnerG rolls and an oil sauce for dipping (which I requested…the rolls are a little dull without it).
I loved my salad. It was the highlight of my meal!
Bean enjoyed steak and potatoes. She is a “grown up” on the disney dining plan for the first time this year, which means her dining choices are larger in both selection and portions.
This surprised me because I didn’t expect to like it. I only booked it because I knew my husband would LOVE it.
Well, it was my favorite meal of the trip! I adored the salads! The red cabbage salad and the tomato onion salad were my favorites. The fruit gel for dessert was nice. It was a terrific meal. My daughter ate mostly hot dogs (although I am sure they had another name).
We all ended up stuffed! She also had a packaged brownie for dessert.
