The Key lunch in the MDR

On LOS last week, Key lunch was in the MDR. It was a Chops menu, but it was MDR temp food. I was disappointed. I've come to realize I don't want my food under a cloche. I ordered the burger and the bun was crunchy and the burger itself was dried out and meh. The final breakfast, also in the MDR, was ok. I had the french toast and it was soggy. These were the only two meals we had in the MDR and it reinforced my #NoMDR philosophy. #don'tclochemyfood #nobanquetfood #Iwanthot&freshfood

However, the rest of the Key perks were well worth the purchase of it at 19.99 a day. Our disembark process wasn't as smooth as others have reported only because they only had one person escorting people off and we got lumped in with a family of 20 who had a few members that had not settled their accounts. Once we got through the sea pass scan point, it was very smooth. 

I was worried about that  :(  We too had only lukewarm meals when we ate in the MDR on Anthem.  With eating specialty dining for all our dinners, it was very obvious that the food wasn't up to standard.

Yes, we are now UDP people for sure and the Key meals in the MDR reinforced that mindset. A "meh" burger in the MDR was still better than fighting the madhouse that the WJ is on embarkation day. My wife had the branzino and really enjoyed it. Our salads were good and the cheesecake was good. The couple next to us ordered the filet and said it was good. However, I don't know how the temp was on it of course. With so few tables, I don't get why they didn't have food runners. As a former server and front manager, it drives me nuts when I get food that I can tell has been sitting.

This has also been my exact experience but I have only been on NAV since they started the Key so its the only thing I have to reference. Please report back because I am hoping with them moving Key people to MDR it frees up Chops for everyone else. Also, aren't you happy they aren't putting Jamie's on Allure? I am and I am hoping Jamie's starts to fade away. 

Yes, I am happy that Jamie’s isn’t going on Allure. The only thing that would make me happier would be to hear that they are putting Portofinos back in. 😉. Of course I already know that it will be Giovanni’s with an expanded wine bar. Not a wine drinker but I think this sounds like a good design. Getting rid of  Vintages which is nearly always empty.

Seems like a good idea for Giovanni's. They are just incorporating the wine bar concept of Vintages, into the new design. As @WAAAYTOOOmentioned, Vintages in the past was a waste of space. We did find on Serenade that Vintages was a nice quiet, comfortable spot to relax and read awhile.

My sister like you isn't fond of Jamie's.  We will be checking out Giovanni's next year on our cruise on Oasis  :)
