Check the dinner menu out in the morning (posted in front of the dining room or it will be delivered to your cabin if you are in a full suite) and then make your decision if you want to go to the Odyssey that night or to the dining room. There is no trouble getting a reservation, so you don't need to make your decision until the day you decide to dine there. The 'best' dishes to order would depend on what you like or what you feel like eating that night. The steaks are fabulous, far surpassing what is offered in the dining room; a much better grade of beef than the dining room. Aside from beef Pacific Northwest cuisine is featured, so there are wonderful fish dishes. You might want to go to the Odyssey several nights. Would I order more than one entree- personally I would not, the Odyssey is a fine dining restaurant, but I don't know what they would say or do if you did.
