My husband and children ate here on our wedding night and it was abit of a let down.The waiter knew we were celebrating and didn't say a thing.In fact it had on our receipt we we're celebrating and he turned it over I front of us. Talk about making the customers feel special especially in Disney! Apart from spoiling the... More

We made a reservation several weeks ahead of time so our wait time was less than five minutes. The atmosphere was nice and our large group sat together in a booth. I wished we would have had a better seat to view the tank of fish though. The food was excellent. We had the appetizer with crab cake and lobster... More

My husband and I ate here on April 4th for dinner and we both highly enjoyed our meals. We were sat in the middle section, so not right up against the aquarium, but the seating is tiered so we could still see. I had the steak and it was very good, my husband had the short rib which he enjoyed... More

Made reservation several months in advance, and wee waitinf 30 minutes past our reservation time. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the food was good. There are no bad seats in the place and eveyone can see the tanks with the fish. Agiain, good, but may have preferred a different reastaurant. I wouldn't miss it but not sure I... More

We ate here on a recent trip on the Disney deluxe dining plan and I have to say that this was the only restaurant that we would not return to. While the food was edible, it was very bland and unremarkable (best part was the bread). Our server seemed jaded and disinterested. While the tank is pretty cool, we were... More

This is a cool little restaurant as you are able to see fish, sharks, a turtle and StingRays while you dine. I had the steak which was very tasty. The desserts were also excellent. Some portions are a bit small on certain meals but the steak was nice size. You dine here more for the experience of the aquarium then... More

The restaurant is beautiful, and there are aquariums on all the walls. But the food is terrible - I ate the lobster pasta and it was awful - the past was undercooked and there was almost none lobster at all! If you enjoy a good place to sit and realz, go to Coral reef, ask for an appetizer and some... More

We always look forward to eating here. This time was not as great as in the past. Our service was not stellar, the food was great and we were next to the aquarium. Unfortunately one of us did have an allergic reaction to a lobster dish, but Disney has been very helpful with getting the ingredients for us.

We love the Coral Reef. On our most recent trip, we made reservations noting it was our 10th anniversary. We also had our daughters (grade 3 and kindergarten) with us. We sat right at the glass of the aquarium, and the large sea turtle spent our whole meal right beside us. Our waiter was very friendly, and even brought us... More

I have been to this place many times since my first trip in 1986. The food is always good and well prepared. I had the swordfish and it was delightful! My husbands steak was cooked just right and very flavorful. It is fun to watch the fish swim in the big tank, We had a table right next to it... More
