Like everyone else has mentioned, both are excellent! On my personal rating scale of WDW restaurants, I have Cali Grill one spot ahead of the Yachtsman’s because of the location, décor, ambience and of course, the ability to watch Wishes w/the music piped throughout the entire restaurant.
But as I mentioned, I do love the Yachtsman’s as well.
So since you’ve been to Cali Grill before, it basically boils down to what y’all will be in the mood for on vacation. If you want an excellent steakhouse experience, then the Yachtsman’s is the way to go. We have a Shula’s 15 minutes away from us so when we’re at WDW, we strictly “do” their restaurants… And IMO, it’s the best piece of beef you’ll find at WDW (excluding the non-Disney restaurants) but I have to say, Jiko’s Oak-Grilled Filet is a close second and Jiko’s is the BEST dining experience we have ever had at WDW by and large (but we still haven’t eaten at Victoria & Albert’s nor Citricos, which are the last two “signature dining” restaurants we have left)!
Anyways, give the Yachtsman’s a shot and then YOU decide which restaurant you like better. Either way it will be a fantastic experience… Have fun!
But on a side note, if you’ve never eaten at Jiko’s, I would scrap the above two mentioned restaurants and book a ressie there. It’s AMAZING!
