Food, and service is exactly the same whether you choose Fixed dining or Anytime dining. IMHO the food is more freshly prepared to order and comes out hotter when we have chosen anytime dining. The surcharge for the speciality restaurants is miniscule and certainly worth paying.
Anytime dining is just another option, and usualy takes place in a dedicated restaurant, the food is usualy the same and you still dress for dinner on party nights but share different table companions each night.
