The impeccable standards of Victoria and Alberts are noticed from the first moment of the visit. The restaurant is lovely but understated, with crisp linens and soft candlelight. The piano plays softly and the service staff is immediately attentive without being intrusive. A personal menu with each diner's name awaits, with choices for each of the several courses from appetizers to dessert. Most tastes (my wife - traditional, myself - experimental) will find an appealing dish throughout the meal. Every course is exceptional. The courses appear smallish, but after five or six that perfectly complement one another, the diner is pleasantly satisfied.
The only thing that could make a meal here more satisfying would be a view of the park, but the ambiance of the restaurant makes up for the lack of an external view. In fact, I personally found myself forgetting that I was in the sometimes-too-touristy Disney, so compelling was the delicious meal and exquisite service. It is an absolute must for my wife and I every time we are in Orlando.

Members of the kitchen staff kept asking us how we were doing and if we had any questions.
Since we did not get the chef's table when we made the reservation (it was reserved 6 months out), we felt like we won the lottery when that party did not show up. It was a truly memorable evening, with great food, impeccable service, and an atmosphere to please any foodie.

The first time we dined here in 1995, we had vension consomme followed by an entree of lamb with vegetables. Following was a course of a pear poached in burgundy wine, Stilton cheese and port, then dessert. Meal is prix-fixe, wine is extra.
The second time we dined there was in October 1996 to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. Again the food was fabulous, we selected venison as the entree, again with the wine-poached pear, Stilton cheese & Austrialian port.
Since it was our anniversary, the waitstaff mentioned it through the meal as well as presenting us with a little cake.
TIP: Dress well (jackets required for men) for an elegant multi-course dining experience with impecable service. Leave the kiddies with hotel babysitter unless they are well-behaved - screaming, free running ones will spoil the experience for yourself and other diners. I have actually seen a couple of mature well-mannered children while dining there.
Victoria & Albert's was recently given AAA's 5 Diamond Award, the only restaurant in Orlando and only one of 3 in Florida to earn this rating.
