This review appeared in the Sunday edition of the Torrance Daily Breeze. It was written by Linda Fields Gold. [email protected] @sgvnfeatures1 on Twitter She desribes the restaurant as being in the Mission Revival Style and that it is a scaled-down replica of the movie theater where Snow White premiered. She reviewed the bar on the first floor and pronounced it "incredible." She ate the Lobster Pad Thai Imperial Roll and sampled the Crispy Gordita and the Pacific Ono Ceviche and the Fire Cracker Duck Wings. For the main dish, she had the Short Rib Raviolis. A colleague had the Twice Cooked Beef Taco and the Sauteed Salmon with Saffron Couscous and a neighbor had the Petit Beef Filet Mignon Braised with Kobe Beef Cheeks, Fingerling Potatoes, Watercress and Zinfandell Essence. For dessert, there was Rocky Road Brownie with marshmallow ice cream, drizzled with caramel sauce; toasted lemon pound cake; and a pear tart. She had wine with each course and said they were excellent. She even reviewed the 9-and-under menu and said two boys she knew both cleaned their plates.
Ms. Gold gave the restaurant her highest grade, four stars and said she'd be back for the items she missed this time around.
This is quite a coup for Disney, showing people there's more to theme park food than hamburgers, hot dogs and pizza (not that there's anything wrong with that).
