Great Steak and dessert

The dining room is nice. Our table was located very far from the aquarium in the furthest corner I don't think my kids noticed the fish. The steak was awesome and the desert was awesome. Service was okay. We would return.

We ate here 4 years ago and really enjoyed it, sadly it didn't live up to last time. We arrived a few minutes early as advised the waiting area was packed with people sitting on the floor, we waited about 15 minutes after our reservation time. Our server was run off her feet she seemed to have too many tables... More

We ate here for our first meal at Epcot. It was great to watch the fish. We also have the chance to watch scuba divers in the tank during our meal

We booked this restaurant 6 months in advance as a family party of 10. When we arrived we were told that there would be a long wait and were eventually shown to our table - which was actually 2 tables, one for 4 and one for 6. Very disappointing and not what we had booked. We were also at the... More

We pooped in at 2:00 on a Wednesday- party of 6 to get out of the sun. What a pleasant surprise. We third row from the huge fish tank windows but even at that distance my kids were riveted to the glass trying to check all the fish species off the list they gave us. My grilled shrimp Cesar salad... More

We had late reservations but we waited for more then 30 minutes which was not cool. Why even make reservations then? We were seated very very late and the place was very dirty. I would have left but the kids were hungry and we had no where else to go as it was closing time. The food was okay. The... More

We'd booked this months in advance, and after waiting quite a long time (the longest of any of our dining experiences in our week at Disney) we were taken to a seat at the very rear. After being given a glass of water each, I asked could we please be moved somewhere closer to the aquarium so we could see... More

Poor service,booked five months ago and ended up with a table at the back...food was only ok for the price. Our waiter did not explain the menu,when asked,he could not be bothered. Why should you tip 18-20% when the service is so bad...? I normally tip 20-25% as I know the staff rely on this...but not today. I will not... More

Members of my family love the ocean, especially my seven year-old son and me. I also love seafood. My impression of Coral Reef, then, is a bit mixed. The food was okay, nothing spectacular. I had the trout, which was nice (the salad with it was tastier than the fish), and my husband had two hors d'oeuvres, the beets and... More

On our recent trip to Disney, we booked the Coral Reef for our Anniversary dinner! I hadn't been to eat there for quite some years, and I loved the dining room with the aqaurium view! We had manicotti with lobster, and salmon! Both were excellent! They gave us some champagne and a dessert to help us celebrate! Thanks, Coral Reef... More
