We used one of our WDW Dining Plans to have a meal here during our Disney holiday, a d what a fantastic place to eat. We sat facing their HUGE aquarium whilst we ate our delicious meal. A very strange, but wonderful experience. We saw sharks, rays, turtles and numerous other fish swim past as we ate. I would thoroughly... More

Surprisingly delicate flavors, though the teenager servers were more suited for an high end McDonalds than a $100 plus meal. Typically profit minded Disney some how allowed the chef to get high end ingredients and decent cooks. Expect limited visits from the busy servers but you will get a nice meal though overpriced, compared to NY. But NY just has... More

Staff checking us in was rude. Did not accommodate our big party well. Food was just OK. Server was nice but other staff was bothered by us.

Food was the best here that we had at any Disney park sit-down restaurant. (All food everywhere was great though). Great ambiance, and waiters were all very friendly

This restaurant was a hi-lite for all of our family. So glad we made reservations 4 months in advance. We all enjoyed looking at the aquarium, the scuba divers, the sting rays, sharks etc., while we enjoyed a delicious dinner. We'll definitely come here again!

My family recently visited Disney World. I generally don't review such places UNLESS something was extraordinary and I found it at the coral reef restaurant. The appetizer of calamari with corn relish I will never forget and will judge all other calamari from. Simply OUTSTANDING and a must order. I know I will never have a better calamari dish, ever.

Had a great table with a great view of the tank which was great because the food was overpriced and on the cold side. Very disappointed in the food so it was great to have the fish swimming next to me
