Our particular experience was just ok. Waited 25 minutes over our reservation time. Octopus was good, but not enough. Grilled Snapper and trout were great. Kids meals included grilled fish, but only came with bland white rice. Unfortunate we were seated in rear of restaurant. Charged for birthday cupcake. Why? If you can get a reservation somewhere else, do so.

Food was so so. Bread and butter was yummy! The server was wonderful. But that view! So relaxing, so awesome! We watched sharks and manta rays and turtles and tropical fish swimming around, it was just way too cool!!

This restaurant got great recommendation from Birmbaum. We liked our meal but it was nothing special. Too much $$ for an average meal.

The giant aquarium is a fun feature to occupy small children until dinner arrives. The chicken was undercooked the mashed potatoes were made with olive oil I could not detect a trace of butter or milk or cream. A cold lump, appearance and taste of adding water when whipping them. The sever was pleasant but food way overpriced for portion... More

I went with all the recommendations of our waitor. Mahi Mahi was ok but paired well with the wine recommendation. The rainbow trout was pitiful. The view of the aquarium and lighting made up for it. And the cupcake my nice had as her birthday treat was tasty!

Six in our adult party, 4:15 PM reservation, seated after 10 minute wait. Seated in front of aquarium/reef, wait staff prompt, attentive and familiar with menu. Somewhat disappointed in limited seafood menu selection as well as what was included with dinner. Comparing this restaurant with other WDW food eateries, I rate it just little above average . Highlight was our... More

We are here for a family meal on vacation to Disney. We were all (especially the kids) for the aquarium view. We were seated on the back row and the kids couldn't see the reef without standing. The food was ok but not great. The fish didn't seem well seasoned. As with anywhere I've been in disney, the employees were... More

We have eaten here almost every time we have been to Disney. I am gluten free so we talked to the allergy chef as is customary with diet restrictions. The best thing on the menu, hands down, is the Lobster Soup. TO DIE FOR! My husband and I both got orders of this. My husband got the Baked Cheese Manicotti.... More

We had a great time here. The server was excellent. She was swamped, it was Christmas time and the park was busy. We had quite a few questions regarding the dining plan, it was our first use of a Table Service Meal. I was afraid the server would be impatient with all of the questions..... She was not. She took... More
