Looking for a romantic restaurant near Disney

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a romantic restaurant near Disney. Of course V and A's is a great place, but it's more then I'm looking to spend on this trip. I'm looking for something more in the price range of an Emeril's (I guess about 50-75 per person) and somewhere in the vicinity of Disney/Universal parks. All rec's are welcome and appreciated. Thanks for the time and help.

    Todd English's Bluezoo at the Dolphin Hotel, Cristini's at Sand Lake & Dr Phillips, and Victoria & Albert's at the Grand Floridian. All will fit the bill.

      What about Columbia in Celebration? The wonderful new La Nuova Cucina is a great bet and reasonably priced. Chathams? http://www.lanuovacucina.com/

        oh yeah I just realized V & A's = Victoria & Alberts. Christini's is going to be in that approximate price range too. Go to bluezoo, that place is really cool. OOH it's a 15 minute drive from disney but you want somewhere that has to be the most romantic restaurant in orlando, go to "The Boheme" at The Grand Bohemian hotel in downtown orlando. that place is both spectacular and has romance oozing out of it's pores. and don't miss the lobster bisque, it has like 23 ingredients, most of which they have to custom order and aren't readily accessible in FL

        agree victoria and alberts, and bluezoo fit the bill , if you happen to be over by seaworld. I think Normans is wonderful

          What about the Venetian Room? I've been reading about it and I think it's my front runner. Any thoughts/experiences?

            Guess I should have mentioned that we'll be dining on a Monday evening. I was about to book The Venetian Room when I realized they're closed on Mondays, which really kind of shot down my plans. Still looking for more suggestions if you have them. Thanks again!
