We did not have a bad experience here but it wasn't a mind blowing experience like at O'hana during the fireworks. We had been wanting to eat here for a while and I am glad that we finally did, but it was just an average experience. The food was good, but not great and honestly, all of the deserts that... More

We were excited to eat at the Coral Reef restaurant for the first time. We arrived and were seated at the very back of the restaurant even though there were plenty of tables toward the front of the aquarium. They said it was because we had a disabled person in our party. Even though she told them that she could... More

The service was good. The view of the huge tank was amazing. I ordered the steak . My brother the chicken. Maybe that all fault for ordering non seafood food. At a place that specializes in seafood. The steak & cheesy mashed potatoes were ok . My brother hated his meal. He says the chicken had no favor. He said... More

Staying in Disney Resort. We made reservations. Disney says allow 2hrs travel which we did. Got there an hour early and tried to check in and was told you cannot until 20 minutes before you appointed time. So we come back at our appointed time and received a pager. Waited another 30 minutes and still no table. I asked for... More

Ok Disney, this is far below standards. I would have preferred microwaved pizza over this meal. This restaurant is very over priced for the quantity and quality of food presented. Most of the food is not fresh...frozen and poorly cooked. I enjoy food from all sorts of places provided it is cooked well. Crab dip had no crab! Over cooked... More

We were staying at a Disney resort and decided to trek into Epcot one night to dine at the Coral Reef. There were six of us and we had, of course, made a reservation far in advance (which is absolutely necessary). We arrived at exactly our reservation time and we were promptly handed a buzzer and told to wait for... More

A must try for Disney dining. Great food, outstanding service, and quite the backdrop for a great meal. The seafood was top knotch and the desserts were quite the treat. Request a table by the aquarium walls for the best views.

It took them an hour and a half to bring us our food. This meal was during passover(for you non jews, on passover we can’t eat bread), and all the waitress could say to us is more bread. I was ready to take the bread and throw it at her, it was just so taunting.

We saved Coral Reef for our final dinner before leaving Disney World. It has always been a favorite. We had a 6:30 seating. We arrived to a lobby full of screaming, cranky children. Understandable because it is Disney, but very surprising since in past years this was a quieter and more relaxed restaurant. We waited for about 15 minutes for... More
