Walt Disney World's signature restaurant, Victoria & Albert's, has received the honor of becoming a AAA Five-Diamond restaurant for the 14th year in a row. Along with unique menus and the freshest ingredients, the staff must "exceed guest expectations by attending to every detail in an effortless and unobtrusive manner." Victoria & Albert's rises to meet those standards and then some. The restaurant features "Italian Sambonet silver, fine Royal Doulton and Wedgwood china, and Italian Frette tablecloths" that are hung to avoid creases. Female guests are given a stool on which to rest their handbags and are sent home with a rose. If patrons are cool in the restaurant, servers will offer a cashmere wrap for their shoulders.

Maitre d'Hotel Israel Perez, Chef Scott Hunnel and Master Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek lead the team at Victoria & Albert's, offering Modern American flavors created with international ingredients and paired with wines for each course. The restaurant offers seating in their main dining room, the Queen Victoria's Room and the Chef's Table in the kitchen. The dining room seating offers 6 courses and is $135 per person and $65 if you would like wine pairings. The Chef's Table and Queen Victoria's room offer 10 courses and are $210, plus $105 for the wine pairings.
