Despite making a reservations months in advance we still had to wait 40 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. The check-in area was chaos! Our waiter made us feel like the whole experience was rushed! The dining area was noisy with little atmosphere. Menu choices were very very limited. Am unmemorable but expensive meal.

Does not offer a great choice for vegetarians. Food was good quality, the service was prompt and friendly. Nice to watch the fish etc swim by.

great view of the fish tank, but limited menu for a seafood place. Very busy, had to wait even with reservations.

The food was good. Dessert was exceptional. The atmosphere is interesting with the large aquarium. However, there was a damp smell to the restaurant.

What ambience! A lovely place to get cool, watch the fish, sharks, sting rays, etc and eat a delightful meal. I recommend the turtle cheesecake. So yummy!

There was just a 5 minute wait with our reservations which is pretty good for Disney. You can't go anywhere there and expect to just walk in. You have to realize how many people are in those parks every day and how well they handle everything. Ok, moving on. It was my wife and daughters birthday and I told the... More

Had an excellent rainbow trout at the Coral Reef. It was served over Arugula and white beans and drizzeled with a light sauce. Wife and daughter both have gluten allergies and chef was very helpful. The best part was dessert. We don't usually have a lot of dessert at restaurants but all around this was excellent. Gluten free lava cake... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday at The Coral Reef while on vacation at Disney World. I called in advance, and they had a scuba diver, in their enormous tableside aquarium, swim down to our table with a sign wishing my husband a happy birthday. The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere spectacular. One Disney's best restaurants!
