First off, it is a gorgeous restaurant, the service was top notch, and the food and drinks...for the most part...were excellent. My duck was a bit dry, but I think that was the only real complaint.
As for the kid part, our kids are usually very well behaved, open to eating a variety of things, and have been to a number of signature spots at WDW. Still, even though this wasn't Napa Rose and was in park dining, we were some of the only ones in there with children when we dined. In fact another patron came by our table on the way out to compliment our girls on their good behavior. While it's nice that people notice, it made it feel more obvious that they were some of the only children there.
I definitely think it's worth dining here, but you'll have to decide if you're comfortable bringing your children as it is a rather refined setting.
We did this for the World of Color package. It was the holidays and we didn't wan to deal with the crowds. The one lighting tower in the way was a pain, but we liked the spot beyond that. It was a chilly night and we definitely didn't want to be anywhere where we might get wet.
Cons:Minor Food Issues/Maybe not the best for kids

I don't think anyone has written a review since the NEW World of Color menu was introduced (turns out the ALL the menus have changed). We like our dinner so much...we came back and ate (Salmon) again! While the WofC pricing is unreasonable IMHO, the same food on the "regular" menu is priced more appropriately. Everything from the salads to the main dish to the dessert (chocolate cake) was excellent and consistent from night-to-night. This restaurant is the closest thing we experienced to WDW "sit down" dining during our stay. Highly recommended!
Pros:Food, Atmosphere, Staff (really everything)

Organic Chicken and Ruby Red Grapefruit Salad on shredded savoy cabbage with mustard-grapefruit dressing. This salad was fresh, delectable, and such a treat! I drank a Pisco sour (a little heavy on the bitters but otherwise very good), and for dessert had warm, gooey, lemon pound-cake with marinated blueberries and chantilly cream. This was a delicious lunch. I can't wait to eat here again.
