Le Cellier Review: Jan. 2006
In all my years of visiting Epcot, I had never been to Le Cellier at the Canada Pavilion of the World Showcase. However, I must say that Le Cellier is one of the most impressive eateries in all of Walt Disney World. Set up as an intimate and elegant steak house, Le Cellier is some of the best table service you're likely to encounter. The service is helpful and informative, and goes out of their way to pamper you during your dinning experience. There's a wide variety of drink and dinner specialities to choose from, and I'm pretty sure that this is the only location in a WDW park where you can get a Martini.
The Steaks at Le Cellier are delicious and are cooked to perfection. Each dish comes with some kind of potato, but vegetables are scarce unless ordered as a side. There are a few other entrees to choose from, such as roasted chicken, salmon, pork tenderloin, and few specials. However, a must order item at Le Cellier is their famous Cheddar Cheese Soup. As our waitress claimed, it's the only item on the menue that hasn't changed since Epcot Center opened in 1982. The cheese soup is fantastic, hearty, and delicious. Le Cellier also provides you with Pretzel Bread, which are bread sticks made out of pretzel dough and lightly salted. Eating the cheese soup and dipping your pretzel bread into it is reason alone to eat at Le Cellier.
If there is a draw-back to Le Cellier, it is its hefty price tag. The entrees average at about $34, and all sides are a la carte. In fact, the only thing included with your meal is all the pretzel bread that you can eat. As a result, Le Cellier is one of the most expensive places to eat in all of WDW. However, our waitress did mention that Le Cellier has a secret option for lunch that isn't advertised. You may order the cheese soup and the pretzel bread to go at the reception desk during lunch hours, and option that we're more than eager to try on our next visit.
Final Verdict: 5/5 - One of the best restaurants on property. If the prices for dinner are too much for you, then definitely stop by for lunch for some Cheese Soup and Pretzel Bread.
