Nice dinner show; mediocre dinner

My experience was similar to that of many of the reviewers here. The atmosphere of the restaurant is fairly typical for Disney. The decor does seem a bit dated. I was seated just a few feet from the tank wall which provided a nice show. Certainly it would be nice way to entertain children. The... read more

Had a great experience. The staff was nice and helpful. The food was ok. I have had better but it wasn't the worst either. I had the lobster manicotti. My husband had the pork belly and it was delicious. Some reviewers said the decor was old but we felt like we were immersed in an underwater world. Ask for a... More

The lobster bisque is the absolute best thing ever! Yes it's pricey but I think it's worth it and my daughter loves it also. Highly recommended it here.

We booked this as soon as it became available and had high hopes. Having the Reef beside the restaurant is fantastic for the kids but the quality of the food was very poor. The steak was chewy, the Pork belly dish was accompanied with terrible beans and mush and they replaced my sons Mac and Cheese as it was by... More

I made our reservation 180 days in advance for a party of 8 with a wheelchair. This place is NOT very handicap friendly due to its layout, especially if you have large party. So when we got there they first attempted to sit us at a rounded booth and place the wheelchair out in the aisle. This would not work... More

We ate at the Coral Reef on our 3rd day of vacation, which was a Monday in September. It was our splurge on our honeymoon 11 years previously, so we wanted to experience it again with our children. We had a side-by-side stroller, and there was space out in front of the restaurant to park it, which was nice. What... More

This is a really neat restaurant. The food was delicious and they had something for everyone. There was a lot of seafood but there were other options for children, who are picky eaters like mine. The wait staff was amazing! My son asked many, many questions about the fish in the aquarium and he answered all of them. It was... More

The food here was great - kids meals to adult entrees; butter and bread to dessert - all great. I had the vegetarian entree which was one of the best vegetarian entrees I've ever had. Fish tank views are a lot of fun. Great experience.

We had dinner during a recent visit. The restaurant is very pretty and we'll set up to see the tanks. The services was not great. The food was also not really that good.
