"Anaheim--Napa Rose showplaces California's wine country and cuisine at the highest level"

By The Editor


It would be difficult to find a more beautiful dining room than the Napa Rose located at the California Grand Hotel in Disneyland. Designed to bring to the world the beauty and charm of California’s wine country this restaurant combines the setting with an exceptional dining experience.

Impressive with its high vaulted ceiling and 20 foot windows that overlook a segment of Disneyland Napa Rose also includes a showplace exhibition kitchen and an extraordinary collection of wines from every part of California.

Matched with a truly professional culinary and service staff it is designed to showcase California’s wine country cuisine. Heading this culinary team is Executive Chef Andrew Sutton who opened Napa Rose after a career that included being Chef at the renowned Auberge du Solei in Napa Valley. At Napa Rose his inspired wine country regional cuisine has captured national attention.

General Manager Philippe Tosques, who has been with Napa Rose for ten years, pointed out that just as much attention is given to the wines and the paring of food and wine. Here there are quality California wines that have not yet earned the recognition they deserve. The number of labels is huge with many available by the glass including some from premium high end wines.

Reading the list may be compared to discovering the ‘who’s who” of California’s diverse vineyards.

Our Waiter, Mickey, is typical of the service staff where many have been with Disney for many years. He has been with Disney seventeen years and with Napa Rose since the day it opened over a decade ago.

Included on the menu are featured four course, prix-fixe Vintner’s Table selections that are paired with a hand-selected wine, and new dishes are created each week by the chef and his culinary staff.

Starters at our table included Sea Breeze, sauteed Branzino with Heirloom tomatoes and Grilled diver scallop with porcini bacon.

Our menu, included Braised Wagyu beef cheeks with mushrooms; maple leaf farms duck a l’orange; grilled Colorado lamb porterhouse and cast iron roasted beef filet mignon, all prepared by Sous Chef Steven Ruiz, each course served with a matching wine.

Desserts included pineapple streusel crumble crunch bar and grilled angel food cake with strawberries and an exciting ice wine from Canada.
