Food is always fantastic - we've been here 4 times - always busy so make sure you are booked at least 2 months in advance sometimes 3 to get the time you want. You look out of the dinning room into the Sea's aquarium - great for the kiddos and allergies - Chef Tom is amazing. Took care of our... More

Wife and I did this place on a whim... we were very surprised. The food is excellent, not priced bad (for disney), and the view of the fish are amazing! Dessert was ok at best... we actually switched desserts because we liked each others better. But I had grouper and it was very good and my wife had a pasta... More

We were disappointed they didn't have a lunch menu. Food was great, but we all had salads and appetizers because we didn't feel like a big entre for lunch.. Request a table close to the aquarium.

We dined last week at Coral reef Restaurant, 8/9/2016. We were fortunate enough to get a tank-side table. It was very entertaining for our children to see the fish as well as the scuba divers while we were eating! Our meal was fresh and delicious. The deserts were as good as any we have had at a signature restaurant at... More

The food is always quite good and we often eat here when we visit WDW but dining often takes up to two hours from reservation time and the service is a bit unpredictable. Went this time with another family and although they wouldn't seat the first family until we were both there, they made no effort to seat us at... More

This is a really neat place below/behind the living sea exhibit. It serves seafood?! but it works. Dimly lit so you can see the creatures swimming around in the tank through the large windows. We save some divers in there while we there. Made reservations and didn't have to wait too long. I don't know if anyone else noticed but... More

One of our favorite meals here at Disneyworld. The ambiance is pleasing. The aquarium is massive. The are plenty of species of fish there. They give each table a guide to the fish (which passes the time away for the kiddos searching for the different variety of fish.) The food was so good. Our family of 7 really enjoyed their... More

How lucky was it that we got a table right against the aquarium! It was lovely. The service was good, restraunt clean, food was a bit pricey for the portion size though. There is not much here for children to eat, so that was the only bummer. I enjoyed the lobster soup, it was quite good. I enjoyed our visit!

W e had a group of 10, which can be difficult to seat together. But Coral Reef put together two tables and we got to all visit together. Our waitress, Patty, did a great job of managing a large table. Everyone really enjoyed the food, and we got to watch the fireworks through the window. Drinks were refilled timely. Food... More
