      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Excellent service
      Cons: over priced, signature salmon dish was tasteless

      “Over rated, not worth the two dining credits Sad

      My party of 8 dined at Artists Point on March 19h at 6pm and our waiter was Martin. He was very nice and an excellent server as he spent time with us answering our questions. The restaurant is elegant and the noise level was never too loud.
      I expected an out of the world meal but it was just average. The food was better and tastier at Harbor House in Magic Kingdom. I ordered the salmon. On the menu it is described as their signature dish. "Cedar Plank roasted Salmon with sweet potato mash, house smoked bacon, winter vegetables and apple cider gastrique" for $39. The salmon tasted like farmed Atlantic salmon, it had no taste. The sweet potato mash was about 2 tablespoons spread on the plate. There were 3 small brussel sprouts that were halved. They were dry and the tops were hard and inedible. There was 3 small broccoli florets that were over roasted and dry. The bacon consisted of one piece about 2 inches. For $39 I would expect a few more vegetable and more than one small piece of bacon. The root vegetables did not taste good and I did not eat them.See the attached picture that shows my description. I could have complained about the dish but I was hungry and didn't feel like causing a disruption. My daughter also ordered the salmon and barely touched the whole plate. I had the suggested wine that was paired with the salmon and that was the most memorable part of the meal.
      For dessert I had the chocolate creme brûlée which was good but nothing memorable.
      Artists Point was a disappointment. The service was excellent but the meal fell flat and I expected more from this restaurant

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Buffalo and Ambience

      Cheese sampler for appetizer was wonderful. Had the Buffalo as the main entry. It was incredible. Wife had the filet and the Buffalo was the much better option. Berry cobbler for dessert was also excellent, however next time I would opt to ask for Vanilla ice cream on top instead of the Raspberry ice cream since the primary berry for the cobbler was blueberry.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Solid food, great wines
      Cons: None

      Had dinner here on Feb 24. Chef came out to talk to me, since I stated some allergies while making reservation. This because I'm vegan. There is a great l'o mein on the menu which is vegan as is, so that was easy. Hubby had the salmon. We both really enjoyed our meal here. Hubby's salmon was amazing, so he stated. Lo mein was great, but I scored it a 9 (and not a ten) because it was a little to oily for me. Wine pairing to both dishes was spot on. Hubby had cheese plate for dessert, looked good and tasted great, or so he Saïd. Would definately go back again.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food and Atmosphere

      Always our "special night out" meal at WDW.
      We had the Cold Water Mussels and Jumbo Lump Crab Cake appetizers - this was DD first try at steamed mussels - she's 11 and loved them.

      DD had the "Coast to Farm" Pan Fired Halibut and Glazed Pork Belly - not a single speck left on the plate.

      DW and I had Hickory Char-crusted Filet Mignon - same.

      This was the busiest night We have ever experienced at Artist Point - I was worried we would see a slip in service - nope! Wonderful evening.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great Mushroom Soup, Views and Service
      Cons: this time - slight problem with Salmon

      This was our fifth time dining at the Artist Point Restaurant – it’s one of our favorites at WDW. In the past we’ve always had best food and experienced the best service of any restaurant at WDW. On this occasion the food fell a little short. Our ADR was for 5:30pm; we arrived at 5:25 and were seated in about 10 minutes.

      My wife decided to get a salad and the Smokey mushroom soup, I opted to get the cedar planked salmon and save room for dessert. My wife’s salad and soup arrived at the same time – not a real big deal as the soup was smoking hot, so she are her salad as the soup cooled. My salmon arrived and looked great, unfortunately, it was very fishy tasting!! I’ve had the salmon on every occasion we’ve dined here, and loved it!! But this time I had to send it back and decided to just go with the mushroom soup and desert.

      The rest of our meal was great as we had a great table with a really good view of the pool area and lake. Our server was excellent throughout our meal and handled my problem very professionally. We will still return in the future. Everyone has an off day occasionally.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Realtively quiet, Outstanding food, Fantastic Service, Excellent Wines, Beautiful view
      Cons: none

      Our waiter was Steven, who was exceptionally knowledgable about the offerings and wines. We ordered the Artisan Cheese Sampler, which was beyond wonderful. I had the game trio, husband had Korean pork loin and mom had cornish hen. All three meals were outstanding. I'm a big fan of CA Grill (haven't been since the refurbishment) and this outshines Grill any day. This is our new "go to" for special occassions. The wine list isn't huge like Grill, but the offerings were perfect. We were too full for dessert but we overheard that they were wonderful. We will certainly stop in some evening for the Artisan Cheese plate, some wine and dessert before our next dinner here. Not alocation I would recommend for kids under 12, certainly not small kids, but this is the ideal location for "date night".
      ($250 before tip: three entrees, one soup, one appetizer, one cocktail, two glasses of wine)

      Cons: Nothing

      The absolute best dinner we had. The service was wonderful. The atmosphere perfect.
      The filet mignon was wonderful, the desserts delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant and stop by the lounge prior to dinner. I will definitely put this on my next visit list.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Service, Food and Atmosphere
      Cons: NONW

      My husband and I dined here on March 12th. We were seated without delay at our 7pm reservation. At first, we were given a table right in front of the kitchen. When I asked to be moved, we were given a beautiful table in front of a window overlooking the WL courtyard. Amazing!!!
      We both had the portobello soup. It was delicious. For entrees, I had the filet and my husband had the trio, both mouth watering. For dessert, we both had the cobbler, and it was truly one of the best desserts we have ever had at WDW.
      Our waitress surprised us at the end of our meal with complimentary champagne to celebrate my husband's birthday, with a glow in the dark Buzz Lighyear clipped to its glass.
      This is a MUST when dining at Disney!!!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Ambiance
      Cons: Food was disappointing for a signature restaurant

      Both of us were most disappointed in Artist Point. We enjoy signature dining and had read many very positive reviews. However, we found the food mediocre at best. Our appetizers were rather up eventful-- my beets had three TINY pieces of beet although they were tasty. The entrees (pork and scallops) were fine but nothing special. Desserts were again plain (cobbler and creme brûlée) that could be found at many table service restaurants. We expect that signature dining should offer a special meal experience and Artist Point just did not offer anything that would justify signature dining to us.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good food

      Both Food and service were excellent. My wife had the chicken which she said was very good and two of us had steak which was excellent and two had the Salmon which was great. Another had the buffalo which was they said was very good. Our server was very attentive even though they were very busy the evening we were there.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Pretty setting; good food
      Cons: Wine list without vintages

      My husband and I had dined here a number of times since it opened, but had not been here for a couple of years. On this visit (November 2013), we had a nice dining experience - but one that did not reflect the outstanding experiences we had on previous visits.

      We started by looking at the menu and wine list. We were surprised that the wine list did not include vintages for any of the wines. In the past, Artist Point had one of the most impressive lists of Oregon and Washington state wines that we've seen outside of the Pacific Northwest. Given that these wines routinely vary from one year to another, we requested vintage information. Our server said that the wines turned over so quickly that it wasn't feasible to provide this. (Note that other restaurants we visited on this trip - e.g. California Grill, Flying Fish, etc. do provide vintages on their wine lists.) Our server responded to our request to identify any of the Oregon Pinot Noirs that were from 2008 or 2009, by offering only one choice - a 2009 - which we accepted.

      We ordered the mushroom soup and green salad to start - both were very good. For entrees we chose the chicken and the scallops. The chicken was OK, but the sauce with it was overwhelming. The scallops over risotto were delicious.

      Overall, our meal was good, but not as great as we had expected based on previous visits. For the price, there are other restaurants at WDW that we prefer.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food, wines
      Cons: seating

      When we checked in we were seated at a two-top with an uncomfortable bench seat. There were many empty tables. After insisting on being seated somewhere else, the rest of our time was fine. (Hint to Artist Point staff: If you are offering a free amuse bouche at one table and don't at others, folks notice) Our meal was very well done. We both had a wonderful mushroom soup. The cedar plank salmon was great. My wife said the pork tenderloin was great too. The Pacific Northwest wine list is nice touch.

      Dined here on 25th September, our server was Orisis ( think I spelt her name right), we were introduced to a new menu.
