California Grill, located at the top of the Contemporary Resort, is a beautiful restaurant. They also happen to have a wonderful celiac- and food-allergy-friendly menu. We loved our first visit to this special place. Here are the highlights:

I started with a Cucumber Fizz. Yum!

My tuna roll. This was the first time I'd had sushi since developing a shellfish allergy. I loved it!

Cale couldn't decide between the chocolate pudding cake and the creme brûlée - so they brought him both!

This is a great place for special occasions – we had my husband’s birthday dinner here! It is a bit pricey, so it won’t be one of our regular go-to restaurants, but I’m certain we’ll be back at some point. Have you been to the California Grill? How do you think it ranks among Disney’s table service restaurants?
