Narrowed it down to Kona Café, GF Café or The Wave. What’s your favorite and why?
I have heard AMAZING things about the Wave. Have a family member who dined there on a whim and loved it so much they go back every year. She said dinner is especially good!. I have eaten at Kona and it was good, although I don’t know if I’d do it for dinner again, I think I’d try the wave over Kona or GF Cafe.
We do dinner at the Wave most trips. There’s no fun factor, but the food is really good.
The absolute WORST service I’ve ever had at WDW was at the Wave. The food was OK, I guess, but the service really ruined the whole experience. I know, every restaurant can have a bad night, but I have no desire to go back…
My favorite monorail resort meal is Ohana, delicious food, fun atmosphere. My family and I went one time and now it’s a must do everytime we go.
So what you read here is what I have heard a million times over about The Wave: it is inconsistent. One person can have an over the top fabulous experience while the next will have a terrible time. So there’s that…
Thanks for the feedback. Going to do some more research and look at menus again before booking.
I had an experience similar to @bswan26 at The Wave for breakfast late last year. The server talked us into the buffet which was pretty meh. There was maybe 4 other occupied tables in whole restaurant and 10 or 12 dirty tables that had not been cleaned after the people left.
We’ve eaten at Kona cafe 3 times in the past year, 1 breakfast and 2 dinners. Each time we had good food and service.
We LOVE Kona and, for us, The Wave was DNR. (Do not return.) Do you like a buffet or a la carte? We prefer a la carte, so Kona is for us.
Kona is a must for me because of the macadamia nut pineapple pancakes!
