Best Restaurant: Victoria & Albert’s
Inside the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is one of the highest rated restaurants in the country. Victoria & Albert’s has received AAA’S Five Diamond Reward, as well as many other recognitions and rewards. Victoria & Albert’s is one of the best restaurants in the Southeast, and is great for adults and older families. While children can dine at the restaurant, it is more designed and aimed towards adults.
Inside Victoria & Albert’s are three separate dining rooms that guests can experience. The dining rooms offer different menus, each more intimate than the last. The Main Dining Room is the first one you will see when you walk inside the restaurant. Guests who dine in the Main Dining Room can expect superb service with two waiters serving you throughout the evening. Guests will be able to indulge in a seven-course prix fixe menu, which includes everything from cold to hot appetizers, to a filling main course, and rounding out with two desserts. The dining room itself has some of the most gorgeous, ornate decorations anywhere on property. Complete with white linens, an intimate fourteen tables, a beautifully hand-painted dome, and fine china—and on top of all that, guests are entertained with soft music from a harpist throughout as they dine.
If you want an even more intimate experience, guests can dine in the Queen Victoria’s Room. Queen Victoria’s Room only allows for eight diners to be seated at a time, and is perfect for those celebrating a special occasion and looking for a little more privacy. There, guests will find a ten course prix-fixe menu, exclusive wine pairings, and more specialized service from the wait staff. The dining room is inspired by the Old Word dining rooms of London and France for a truly otherworldly experience.
The most intimate and amazing dining option at Victoria & Albert’s however, is the Chef’s Table, where diners are given the opportunity to dine in the kitchen. While enjoying up to thirteen diverse courses, guests can get an up-close viewing of the workings behind-the-scenes in this first class kitchen. The chef chats with guests and explains how things are done throughout the course of the meal. Wine pairings are also available with each course.
With such a high-class dining experience, there is a dress code. Men must wear a sports coat
with dress slacks and shoes (ties are optional). Women may wear a cocktail dress, a nice dress, a pantsuit, or a skirt and blouse. Jeans, shorts, capris, sandals, flip-flops, and tennis shoes are not allowed. Guests also receive special gifts after their dining experience.
