Nice atmosphere, service slow

My family ate there on a Friday evening. We made reservations several weeks in advance. Items on the menu that we tried were the rainbow trout with arugula and beans and mahi mahi with jasmine rice and a coconut lime sauce. The rainbow trout was salty. The mahi mahi was good but the sauce... read more

Have eaten here for lunch, twice in the last 4 weeks. Both times we found the ambiance to be very peaceful. We are sure to arrive at opening time, this assures some time before the crowds with kids arrive. The music is a very nice light jazz, last week it was piano only and was great. Wine and beer are...

Well worth a visit. Food average but service exceptional. Ask for josue to swim you to your table. Bruce (yes really) is a very good server and knows a lot about fish. By far our best restaurant experience. Definitely recommend because of the staff.

- after hours of walking on a very hot day in Epcot, we decided to try this restaurant - Service very friendly and organized (you get the usual timer and when it sounds you are ready to be seated) - Seafood: excellent! We had grilled octopus and raw tuna, we were surprised about the classy, fancy level it was served.... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem, I think because it is not located in the World Showcase but is in Epcot. It is busy, but not like some in World Showcase. The atmosphere is stellar with all of the seats having a great view of the beautiful tank filled with sea creatures and the occasional diver. We have been to... More

Don't waste your time or money at this restaurant - it is not worth it. Food was not that great and overpriced.

This is among the hidden gems at Epcot. Located to the right of the Nemo ride, the restaurant views the giant aquarium. The food was excellent, though the service was a bit slow. We found the wine selections to be uninspired, but the food was really very good overall. The seafood was fresh and well prepared. No complaints.

Made reservations thru Disney for 810 we arrived at 805 and were told they were running behind up to 15 minutes. We were asked to wait along the wall. While waiting we looked thru their menu so we would know what we wanted once seated. It was at least 25 minutes past our reservation time before we were seated at... More

The Coral Reef Restaurant is definitely the number one restaurant on our list when we visit Disney. We first visited a few trips back and we were absolutely amazed by the beautiful interior and the food was amazing too. We got to watch the giant aquarium that had a few scuba divers in it as well. I remember vaguely the... More

We had a table right next to the aquarium, and there were a great selection of sea creatures to be seen during our meal. We opted for the steak and it was good. Portions are large and service is good. The atmosphere is the best thing about this restaurant. We did see some scuba divers during our meal, but I... More
