We were very, very surprised at how good Be Our Guest was for dinner. Our expectations had been set low by the other table service restaurants in the Magic Kingdom. The fact that we had better service at Be Our Guest than we did at the new Monsieur Paul at Epcot is a real statement. (Well, it's a statement about both restaurants.)

Be Our Guest seemed a bit apologetic about it's menu. After all, it's serving fussy French food to theme park goers. We had the Assorted Cured Meats and Sausages (a.k.a. charcuterie), French Onion Soup (no confusion here), Sautéed Shrimp and Scallops (a.k.a. lobster Newburg, without lobster), and Ratatouille (we know this one because Pixar showed it in a movie). All were great except for the Ratatouille which was undercooked, but quickly replaced with a perfectly prepared pork chop.

In fact, there was so much concern over the quality of the Ratatouille that we were visited by two managers. They were very concerned about keeping up standards and seemed to make it a goal to be the best in-park restaurant.

To be clear, this is not fine dining. The surroundings are rich and detailed as to be themed like a palace, but the culinary goal is more brasserie in style. The service was efficient, but we were never rushed. The food was not composed of expensive products, but did not taste mass produced (an achievement for a 550 seat dining room). The wine wasn't anything to talk about, but it paired well with the food (another thing Monsieur Paul can't claim). Overall, we had a relaxing meal that blew away our expectations. Reserve a couple hours to eat and walk around to see each room.

One warning: after a long day in the park and a couple glasses of wine, you will be tempted to by a beverage in a blinking, color changing goblet. Try to resist. They don't look as good in the light of day. :)
