3. Amazing Customer Service
Apart from having an amazing menu and a great atmosphere, an important feature that would help any restaurant in scaling up its business is customer service, and this is an aspect where Le Cellier Steakhouse excels.
Most people walk into a restaurant because they want to have a great meal in an amazing atmosphere while feeling like a king, and when they get anything less than this, it can be a huge turn off.
Luckily for those of you, I can assure you that your experience at this restaurant will be pleasant. Cast Members at Le Cellier Steakhouse sees you as their one and only Guest, and treats you as such.
As soon as you step into their premises, you will be given all the needed attention by their ever courteous and respectful group of Cast Members.
On my visit, I was welcomed by friendly Cast Members as a walk-in right away. I came after the lunch rush which most likely contributed to my ease of getting a seat.
The cozy environment embraced me and I knew I was in the right place. The Cast Member presented me with my menu which took me forever to decide what I wanted.
There were way too many options, but I decided to go with the Iceberg Wedge Salad, the Le Cellier Signature Poutine and the Ottawa Apple cocktail.
Iceberg Wedge Salad
For a hot summer Florida day, the Iceberg Wedge Salad was just what I needed. It was refreshing with crispy lettuce and a creamy avocado buttermilk ranch dressing that combined the melody of bacon, cucumber, tomato and blue cheese so well.
It was a great start to an afternoon meal.
Le Cellier Signature Poutine
This was by far one of the hardest decisions I had to make as this Disney dining location offers 3 types:
- The Annual Passholder Poutine
- Montreal Poutine
- Le Cellier Signature Poutine
After going back-and-forth between the Passholder one and the Signature one, I opted for the latter. And I am so happy that I made that selection. I love fries PERIOD! And doing it the Canadian way with a Disney twist had me all giddy inside.
The fries were thicker than your average, but not as thick as steak fries. It was topped with Canadian cheddar, truffle and a red wine reduction that combine all the best savory ingredients needed for a top-notch poutine.
This is quickly starting to become one of my go-to drinks at Epcot. Its refreshing, slightly sweet, with a delicious apple note to finish.
Ottawa Apple Drink Recipe
- Crown Royal Maple Whiskey
- Apple Infusion
- Cranberry Juice
After finishing up my meal, I was too full to take advantage of an entree or the Prix Fixe dining option which allows you to choose one appetizer, one entree and one dessert for one low cost.
