Narcoossee's Restaurant Review

: Wander across the pretty grounds of the Grand Floridian and down by the water, and you'll find this octagonal-shaped restaurant jutting out over the Seven Seas Lagoon. Casual but still upscale, the experience just might be part of your fondest vacation memories. Fresh seafood specialties are always on the menu, featured in starters such as slow-poached and chilled shrimp cocktail, and clams in tomato, white wine and saffron broth with chorizo and shaved fennel. The market salad combines garden vegetables, house-made pancetta, candied walnuts and honeyed mascarpone. For entrées, the coriander and shichimi spiced seared ahi with charred beans, green papaya and sticky rice in a ginger, makrut lime and soy broth is a standout, as are the pan-seared Georges Bank day boat scallops served with trofie pasta and sultana raisins with grilled elf mushrooms. When it’s on the menu, go for the wild Alaskan halibut. Narcoossee's is one of the few places at Disney World where you can find a whole steamed Maine lobster. They'll happily pair a wine from the notable collection with your dinner selection. End the meal with a Narcoossee's "candy bar," a dark chocolate-mocha bar with smooth house-made Guanaja chocolate gelato.

Great Food, Great View

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at Narcoosee's. Their specialty is seafood, though you'll find a little bit of everything. Since the restaurant sits out on the water, you'll have a beautiful view of Seven-Seas Lagoon and Cinderalla's Castle, if you can wrangle a seat by the windows. Actually, every seat in the house can still look out through the picturesque windows. We purposefully had a later reservation so that we could watch the fireworks display over the Castle -- lovely.

The seafood was excellent and the staff was attentive, detail-oriented, and quite friendly. Every request that I made throughout the evening in order to make the night special for my wife was met with enthusiasm.

Some reviewers elsewhere have pointed out that the wood floors carry sound so that the atmosphere is not quiet. Well, it's true that the wood floors do carry sound, but the critique needs to be qualified. Narcoossee's is not excessively loud, by any means. True, it's not whisper-quiet like some top world-class restaurants, but compared to 97% of all restaurants, you'll have no trouble with the noise level. It's as quiet or quieter than the average steakhouse.
