With so many dining options to choose from, it can get overwhelming when deciding where to eat in Epcot. One of the most popular restaurants that guests love is Le Cellier Steakhouse in Canada. Combining a lovely setting with decadent food options, it is no wonder why it can be hard to secure a reservation there! Here are six things that guests love about Le Cellier Steakhouse that will make them want to dine there on their next visit to Epcot.
Le Cellier Steakhouse is designed to feel like a cozy wine cellar complete with vaulted ceilings and rich color pallets. When guests first enter the restaurant, they are greeted with a massive wine rack covering the nearby wall. Once inside the main dining room, guests will notice that the restaurant is rather small in comparison to other locations in Walt Disney World which contributes to what makes it so hard to secure an Advanced Dining Reservation. Once seated, guests will immediately forget that they are in Epcot as they start to enjoy the low lighting provided by candle filled chandeliers, beautiful architecture, and rich details.
5. Knowledgeable Servers
The servers at Le Cellier Steakhouse are always willing to share details and suggestions at every meal. While being seated, guests are told about how the interior of the restaurant was inspired by the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac and the Fairmont Chateau Laurier which are home to two of the most impressive wine cellars in Canada. Once guests are ready to peruse the menu, the servers are very knowledgeable about the food and drink options and willing to make suggestions based upon guests’ preferences and likes.
