Epcot Le Cellier Steakhouse

The Epcot Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canadian Pavilion of World Showcase is one of the most popular restaurants in the whole of Walt Disney World. Second only to Cinderella’s Royal Table in difficulty of getting a reservation you really do have to plan ahead to snag a table at this Signature Dining Restaurant.

How do you get a reservation at Le Cellier? Call 407 WDW DINE or book online up to 180 days ahead. You do have a better chance if you stay at a Disney resort as you can book 180 days ahead for up to 10 days of your reservation (effectively giving you up to a 10 day head start on everyone else).

Le Cellier translated means, yes you guessed it, The Cellar. If you didn’t know it was there you could walk past the entrance without noticing it. Le Cellier is located below the Chateau in the Canadian Pavilion. There are no windows in this small restaurant and it is designed to look just like a wine cellar.

Le Cellier has long been known as one of the best restaurants in Epcot and gained a reputation for being very very difficult to get a reservation. It took me many attempts before one day years ago when I simply decided to see if I could get a ‘walk in’ reservation at lunch and hit lucky. So even if you don’t plan ahead it is sometimes worth asking when you arrive. Just don’t rely on it – and have a back up plan!

In 2011 Le Cellier was designated a Signature Dining Restaurant so will require 2 Dining Credits for dinner if you are on the Dining Plan. Is Le Cellier really that good? Many now feel that it falls a little short of the mark, particularly on service. I have not dined there since the Signature Dining designation so perhaps they have upped their game. but for me, the standard of the food and service just wasn’t as high as the other top restaurants in Disney World. Diners consistently rate the food very highly.

Why was it always so difficult to get a reservation at Le Cellier. Not only the good reputation and serving a popular type of cuisine. But also the simple fact that it just isn’t very big! Le Cellier is one of the smaller restaurants in Walt Disney World so it just can’t accommodate many diners.

When Le Cellier became a Signature Dining Restaurant, you guessed it, the prices went up quite a lot! If you are set on dining here you may want to try for a reservation for lunch. The menu is very similar to the dinner menu but there are slightly lower prices. Also if you are on the Dining Plan then lunch only requires one Dining Credit.
