We booked this restaurant, because we were on the dining plan & wanted to try something different. We expected a similar setting to that of the Garden Grill all open that people could view inside the restaurant. But we were pleasantly surprised to find it very different from your average restaurant. It feels like you are under the water because... More

We chose the Coral Reef as part of our Disney Dining for dinner one evening while visiting Epcot. It's located just beside the Nemo & Friends ride. Upon first entering, it does have a seafood restaurant kind of smell, but that goes away once immersed into the main dining area. Once inside the main dining area, you can see all... More

My wife and I had a FP+ for this restaurant. We have now eaten here 3 times in all our Disney visits. We had a table beside the aquarium glass or had a booth with good vision of the aquatics. Let's face it, it's all about the view in this venue. Personally my dish was excellent. It was the seared... More

This was our third experience at the Coral Reef. We've traveled with different people, and I wanted them to experience the ambiance of dining while viewing incredible sea life. Each time it's been a minimum 30 minute wait past our reservation time to be seated. Everyone's food was only average this visit. I do not understand why this restaurant "in... More

Food wasn't half bad and we got a dessert for our honeymoon. I had reserved months ahead and made a note that I would wait until the ends of time to sit by the tank. We got an amazing seat near a great spot by the tank. Apparently the waiter knew how excited I was to be by the tank.... More

We had supper this past Saturday night at the Coral Reef. I read some of the reviews and was a little concerned. After eating Saturday night, no worries. Very good food! 6 of us ate there and all meals where very good. All cooked perfectly, good quality products. We ranged from salmon to chicken to pasta. Complemented the head chef.... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by a friend so I made reservations months before our trip. We selected the quick service dining plan so we were not bogged down by set eating times so we knew we would pay cash. When we arrived my husband was asked by a newer employee if we had a dining plan. When he responded... More

First, we were told we would be seated soon but it took about half an hour. Then we were seated so far away from the water tank, so we didn't have a very good view. That's the reason we chose to eat here and that was disappointing. The food was average. It was hilarious when the waitress said that the... More

We came to the Coral Reef for a late lunch around 3 pm (the lunch and dinner menus are nearly identical). The main centerpiece in the dining area is the big aquarium tank full of fish, a few sea turtles, and a shark. Divers entered the tank during our meal and brought all the fish to the front, which was... More

We booked this restaurant weeks in advance, to be a celebration meal for our 28 year old son (who was traveling with us). The trouble was when we ordered drinks, the waitress refused to accept his driving license as id. She claimed that Disney policy was that anyone looking under 35 must show a passport. A driving license was only... More
