Romantic Dinner at Napa Rose
Napa Rose located within Disney’s Grand Californian Resort has a well-known reputation for exceptional food, service, atmosphere, and wine menu. Napa Rose is the perfect romantic dinner at Disneyland Resort.
Andrew Sutton, the chef at Napa Rose, was highly recognized in the Napa Valley scene before opening Napa Rose in Disneyland.
According to Disney’s Website, “Since its launch in 2002, Napa Rose has received accolades and awards from a number of esteemed organizations including the Wine Spectator, Zagat, The Southern California Restaurant Writers and the Orange County Business Journal.”
Napa Rose is located on the first floor of the Grand Californian Resort. The entrance is located outside near the pool and Storyteller’s Cafe. The resort is decorated in frescos of wine country scenes in California.
Napa Rose features a seasonal menu that changes throughout the year. We dined during the fall season and our menu was different than the current holiday offerings.
Appetizers currently include scallops, artichoke fritters, meatballs, salad, meatballs, and pot pie. When we dined, I enjoyed an Arugula and fresh green salad with marinated cucumbers and a house made vinaigrette dressing. I do not typically enjoy cucumbers, but these were delicious. It was the perfect starter on a hot fall day.
Entrees are also rotational throughout the year. When we dined during the fall season we enjoyed the Filet Mignon and Duck Breast. Our favorite was the duck breast which was extremely flavorful and unique.
We finished our meal with dessert. Our table ordered the Valrhona Manjara Chocolate Indulgence. We had noted on our dining reservation that it was our anniversary, and the staff decorated our dessert. The dessert was small in size but extremely flavorful and indulgent.
Our service at Napa Rose was exceptional. As in most signature restaurants we had a main server and another server who assisted with drink refills, cleaning the table, etc. Both were friendly and prompt. They were both knowledgeable of the menu and answered any questions we had. All of the cast members acknowledged our anniversary to help us celebrate the occasion.
On your next Disneyland trip, enjoy a romantic fine dining experience at Napa Rose.
