We recently had lunch at the Coral Reef Restaurant. We had a reservation and we arrived about an hour early and they said they would seat us early. They gave us a beeper and we took a seat on a bench filled with crying kids. One parent came back and told his wife he found the mens room and it... read more

It took forever to get served. We were just forgotten! The mahi mAhi was tasty, and desert was just meh! We did not get a seat near the fish tank. So average. Never again!

We have eaten at Coral Reef during each one of our visits and always enjoyed it, but due to so many bad reviews, we almost canceled our reservation. I'm so glad we didn't. Our meals were just as tasty as we remembered. Our steaks were juicy and cooked just right, and our daughter thoroughly enjoyed her shrimp and grits. The... More

From 5/17/14, 8:20pm reservations for two for my girlfriends birthday. Just got home. Do not order the manicotti. It was so bad they comp'd our entire meal. The noodles were very tough and the sauce tasted like Chef Boyardee. The dish was comparable to TV dinner manicotti with a small, poorly plated lobster tail. When the big group sitting next... More

The restaurant has a view of the large aquarium tank of the Seas with Nemo and Friends attraction in Epcot so you eat dinner with fish swimming next to you! Food is good, but not the best I've had at Disney. Atmosphere wins here!

There are so many great places to dine in at EPCOT, this is definitely not worth it. If you want to see the tanks, you can do so just by walking around the Sea building, at no cost. We were disappointed all around. The decor feels dated, drab, and a little oppressive. Rather than feeling like you're under the sea,... More

Found some fun photos for Coral Reef ... Did a bit of a reminiscing .. Decided to write a review even though it's been five months. Our visit was in November 2015. Have been to this restaurant probably five other times before, always had a good experience. When booking our dining plans I always read over lots of review (even... More

I was very excited to try the coral reef restaurant having never eaten here in my many travels to Epcot. Lots of my friends have been to the coral reef restaurant and all of them spoke highly of the food and the experience. We had a group of 4. We were seated in the very first table against the aquarium.... More

We found this by mistake after leaving the Nemo show. This restaurant is against aquarium and you can eat lunch while watching the fish.

The surroundings are great. Seeing the fish, shark, turtles are wonderful while you are enjoying a meal. The decor very tasteful and comfortable. We have eaten there before years ago and thoroughly enjoyed everything, but this time around not so. I had the trout. Very salty and thin. Had to return it and the waiter suggested the MahiMahi. It was... More
