Space 220 Is So Much More Than a Space Elevator and Cool Screens

When Disney released details about Space 220 years ago, I wasn’t focused on appetizers, entrees, or desserts. I was excited about this restaurant’s cool tech. A 220-mile-tall elevator? An entire wall of screens looking out into space? Yes, please!

The space elevator was cool. And walking into the dining room was pretty incredible. We ogled the room for a few minutes after we were seated. Then the food arrived and we forgot all about it.

That’s because Space 220’s food is off-the-charts delicious.

It’s a prix fixe menu. Unfortunately, you can’t split a meal. Trust me, you won’t want to.

Lunch is $55 while dinner is $79. Children are $29 for either meal. Lunch doesn’t include the complete dinner menu, but many favorites are there. Dessert is also not included at lunch.

I’m not a drinker, so this review is all about the food. First up, the apps.

Neptuna Tartare

I ordered this Yellow Fin Tuna appetizer and was positive I made the best choice at the table. The tuna with the creamy avocado crema and tangy Yuzu dressing were the perfect start to my meal. Then I tried my wife’s cauliflower.

Blue Moon Cauliflower

My wife hit the motherlode. This app was the best thing we ate all night. I never seek out cauliflower. In fact, I usually avoid it. But this crispy vegetable changed my mind. The hot sauce and blue cheese dust didn’t overwhelm the dish. 100 out of 5 stars. Get this when you go.

Big Bang Burrata

This cheese app was fresh and delicious. I’d order it again and again, as long as those other appetizers I’ve talked about weren’t available.

The appetizers set an incredibly high bar. Unfortunately, my entree did match that bar.

Filet Mignon

My steak had incredible flavor but was overdone. I always order medium. This came out medium well. I should’ve asked for a new steak because everyone else had a perfectly cooked filet. Not sure why I didn’t. Also, the sides have changed since this photo was taken. Instead of a croquette and carrots, it now comes with mashed potatoes.

Half Lobster Stuffed with Jumbo Crab

Once again, my wife nailed it. She ordered a 1.5-pound baked lobster overflowing with jumbo crab meat. It also comes with corn, broccolini, and Mornay sauce. Everything was delicious. There is an upcharge for this dish, but it’s only another $18. Pretty reasonable for Disney prices.

I’m not sure how we did it, but we also ate dessert that evening. Unfortunately, our dessert review is going to be a little thin since we all ordered the…

Chocolate Cheesecake

This was light and fluffy and a perfect end to our meal. I’ve heard great things about the carrot cake. I guess we’ll have to go back.

Our dinner at Space 220 is a top-3 meal for my family, and that’s with the slight overcook on my steak. The elevator ride back to Earth was once again cool, but not what any of us were talking about. And I don’t mind that. I’ll take substance over flash every single time.
