Disney World’s Victoria & Albert’s named Orlando’s most iconic restaurant by Zagat

Zagat has named Disney's Victoria and Albert's as Orlando's most iconic restaurant (Walt Disney Co.)

The Walt Disney World Resort’s restaurant, Victoria & Albert’s has been named Orlando’s most iconic restaurant by Zagat. Zagat just released a new list of fifteen U.S. restaurants that “embody the essence of their city.”

Zagat included this review of Victoria & Albert’s“A ‘once-in-a-lifetime experience,’ this Grand Floridian ‘celebration destination’ earns ‘superlatives all around,’ from chef Scott Hunnel’s ‘exquisite,’ ‘beautifully presented’ New American prix fixes to ‘impeccable’ service — and an ‘über-romantic, high-end’ setting where ‘elegance rules’ (jackets are required for men); you may ‘need to hock one of your kids’ to pay, but those ‘trying to impress’ say there’s ‘no finer place.'”

This is not the first recognition the restaurant has received though. Victoria & Albert’s became a James Beard award semifinalist for outstanding service in 2013. Also this year, Victoria & Albert’s Chef Hunnel was named a semifinalist for the Best Chef South category. The restaurant has received the AAA Five Diamond award for thirteen straight years. Victoria & Albert’s is also a 22-year recipient of the Forbes Travel Guide four-star rating and has won numerous Foodie Awards over the years from the Orlando Sentinel.

Orlando Sentinel Food Critic Heather McPherson says “Hunnel’s creative genius, along with one of the great chef’s table experiences in Central Florida, an impeccable service staff and an exemplary food and beverage pairing program, has made V&A a crown jewel in the local dining scene.”

Victoria & Albert’s is found in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, one of the deluxe resorts at the Walt Disney World Resort. It is classified as a “fine/signature dining” experience. The price tag on these meals reflects these awards and recognition though as Disney classifies it as a “$$$$” restaurant, averaging over $60 per adult meal. Victoria & Albert’s offers 7 prix fixe courses in the Dining Room, 10 in Queen Victoria’s Room or 10 at the Chef’s Table as well as an award-winning wine collection. The menu changes daily and guests are required to follow a formal dress code.
