best place to eat in both parks, reasonable, neat atmosphere and can sit down and get cool, need reservations most of the time, good selection of food, highly recommend this
Mythos has a great reputation, but I have found it to be just average as far as restaurants go. The theming is impressive, but the wait times are generally long (although I think you can make reservations if you want.). The food is decent, but not anything to rave about. The only reason I would eat at Mythos as opposed to one of the nearby counter service places is if I really felt the need to sit down and be served on real plates. Sometimes, you just need to feel real silverware in your hand rather than plastic, so if you are in that kind of mood, Mythos is a perfectly decent, average restaurant to eat at.
I tried Mythos after hearing how great of a restaurant was and I was slightly disappointed with the food. Firstly, there is almost always a wait for the restaurant. The best part of eating at Mythos was the inside decor and structure of the building. It is very cool to see at least once. The service was not the greatest and was a little slow. I ordered the Pad Thai and it was a very big portion, but a little lacking in flavor. I had very high expectations for the restaurant, but I felt that I could have gotten better food somewhere else. Would rather have spent the money at the Three Broomsticks. Overall, the scenery of the restaurant is great, but the dish I had was seriously lacking in flavor.
If you are worried that you will spend too much if you go to a table service restaurant at a theme park, know this...it's maybe $3 more and worth it to relax and be served! We dined at Thunder Falls in Jurassic Park (which is quick service waiting in line) on our first day and spent almost the same amount at Mythos. I'm a HUGE HP fan and only wish IOA would keep the Lost Continent for this restaurant! The plates have fine dining presentations. The sushi roll is beautiful and fresh. The Asian salad was great and the grilled fish. We didn't have kids with us but I was amazed at the selections on the kids menu. You won't regret picking this place instead of one of the quick service places.
Chose Mythos in the hopes of finding a gluten and dairy free meal for my wife. We weren't disappointed. Staff were very attentive and went through the menu to ensure we had a great dining experience. Meal was great and service was as well. Great place for a family meal for those with or without dietary restrictions.
