Narcoossee's Undergoes a Sea Change in its Seafood Menu
Narcoossee's, the seafood restaurant at Walt Disney World's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, has never been one of my favorites. It seemed to let its commanding view of the Magic Kingdom across the lagoon be its best draw -- the food was secondary.
But now chef Joe Wilson has revamped the menu. It's still seafood centric, and, oddly, Asian influenced, but the quality has skyrocketed. For the first time since it opened in the late '80s, Narcoossee's has earned my recommendation. Here's my full review.
Didn't it used to be more Southern themed? I remember it used to be a favorite of my family, but it kinda fell off the radar about 10 years ago.
The food, when we ate there, it was fairly good without being outstanding. The service was acceptable without being memorable. The view, which is it's big selling point, was obscured by people standing outside on the verandah.......some without actually having eaten there.
I've eaten there twice and neither time was memorable. Well not memorable for the food anyway. I remember not really being able to see the fireworks and the guests next to me kicking their lobster under the table....
I had the snapper whole fried and it was fantastic. I had been a fan of the restaurant for years but it had fallen off the quality map. From my expereince it is back with a vengance and I will have it on my lis to fplaces to go during my next trip.
I wasn't impressed from looking at the photos. The appetizers are downright skimpy. They are individual portions. They are not enough to share, which should be the point of them.
