We chose the grill mainly on reputation and as the time coincided with the firework display at nearby Magic Kingdom - Wishes. Contemporary Resort looks great at night with the Christmas tree outside, and it is unusual to register arrival on floor 3 and then get in a lift for the top floor (15) for your meal.

I would never have thought of fine dining at Disney World but the California Grill proves me wrong. Probably one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The view of the Park is spectacular, as well if you plan your dinner getting to watch the fire works from the top of the Contemporary hotel is incredible. The Service... More

Up front-1 appetizer (shared), 2 pina coladas, 1 hard cider and 2 entrees-$190-ok now that I got that out of the way-everything was excellent (for Disney food standards). This is not the same excellent I would give a stand alone restaurant in a major city-it's not THAT good-but the best possible meal in all of Disney (I have never had... More

What I could eat was very delicious.Portions were small and prices were astronomical. Desserts were wonderful. The restaurant did not seem to be for children or families, but more sophisticated adult... More

In the mall so a great place to eat, relax and regroup. Get a window seat for people watching. Clean, bright, airy. The waiter was excellent taking time to explain the menu and make suggestions. I had the meat variety pizza, very thin and tasty. Wife had the pasta and could not eat it all. Pretty much a standard California... More

I like California pizza kitchen. They have a varied menu not just pizza. The pizzas are tasty but they also offer great salads, pasta, salmon, chicken. I have eaten here several times and never had a poor meal.

Serve and food was just okay, would not go back. First time there, waited 45 min. For a salad, was told if we wanted read we should have asked. Very disappointing

The title says it all, whether you eat the pizzas or try their individual dishes, you wont be disappointed. Fresh, tasty, and none of the heavy 'surprise' calories.
