Jason has always dreamed about eating in Canada so he was happy to help with our Le Cellier Review. Underneath the Château in Canada, within the wine cellar area is Le Cellier Steakhouse, a signature restaurant. It was one of the original restaurants when Epcot opened in 1982 and has remained a popular dining option ever since. It is a very small restaurant which is why it is always so difficult to get a reservation there.
When you enter the restaurant, the hostess is stationed in front of the gates that guard the Château’s wine selection.
Beautiful paintings line the wall as you are escorted back to your table.
The ceiling of the restaurant is curved with open support beams to make you really feel like you are dining in a secret restaurant under the Château.
The dining room is very small and intimate. There is low light which makes it a very romantic choice for couples celebrating special occasions (we were celebrating the reopening of Epcot).
They do have a bread service with a selection of 3 different breads including a delicious pretzel roll.
Le Cellier is a steakhouse with most of the menu options being different cuts of steak. It also has an extensive wine list since it is themed to be in a wine cellar.
For the Le Cellier Review, we both ordered the USDA Prime Rib-Eye Steak. It came with Warm Fingerling Potato Salad, Bacon, Wilted Spinach, Capers, Whole-Grain Mustard Sauce and a Bordelaise Butter. Interestingly enough, the steak’s literally sitting on these sides.
The steak itself is an excellent cut of meat. It’s seasoned just right and literally melted in your mouth. The sides were a great accompaniment, but there isn’t a generous portion of them. The focus is all on the steak.
Jason practically licked his plate. To the point I offered him the remaining piece of steak that I had because I felt like must be ravenous.
The price to dine at the restaurant is steep, so make sure you plan for it. One entree was $59. Our total bill was around $150 for lunch after tip (and we only drank water).
