Tiered seating is advertising at this restaurant in Epcot near the Nemo ride. Great, I thought my short height would not be a hindrance. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Not only was I unable to get a good view of the aquarium, my meal was more than $70, the service was average, and the food was nothing special. The serving staff kept... More

Sadly a nice idea that is plagued by the standard Disney approach of that you can't easily go anywhere else anyway. We were on time yet had to wait 20 min with 3 tired and hungry kids. Our table was far enough away from the aquarium as not to really matter that we were there. Our server was very nice... More

If you are seated near the windows expect your meal to be rushed. We hadn't even finished the appetizers before the dinner was plopped in front of us. The server kept trying to push the fish dishes for ordering (no offense but I don't want to eat fish while I am watching fish). The food was really average. It was... More

As is the case in many of the Disney restaurants, the reservation time was not honored. I guess it's almost understandable given the amount of visitors each day, but perhaps another system is warranted. Once seated, we enjoyed the atmosphere, especially the divers in the aquarium. We were on a dining plan, so choices were great, and the food was... More

Beautiful setting for a nice sit-down lunch. The food was definitely up to Disney's high culinary standards but I expected a higher level of service at this price point. We paid $161 for lunch for three adults and two children after our 10 percent Chase discount. When the server took away our salad dishes to prepare for the main course... More

I had reservations but showed up a little early. I waited about 20 minutes and the wait was worth it as I was seated in front of the huge glass window to view the amazing fish (and people swimming around)! The food was gourmet and the wait staff very accommodating. I had the shrimp and grits which were excellent. I... More

Located in the front of Epcot (not World Showcase) next to Nemo ride. Lots of seafood options, traditional children's menu. Dining area is situated around an aquarium. While we were eating, someone was scuba diving which was neat to watch. We ordered 4 different desserts & they were all fantastic!

Ate here with my family while visiting Epcot November 2016. In Disney World everything is driven by time, parks open/close, show start times, fast path, ect. So when you have a dinner reservation for 7:05 you should be seated at 7:05 not 7:35. Given the Disney time structure this is unacceptable. This needs to change. Other than that the food... More

Should have read reviews closer. There's an aquarium inside restaurant that is a big draw, after that it goes down quick. Although our waitress (Kimberly )was very good, the food was not. Mahi was dry, Scampi had a flavor that was not appealing. I would not go back since there are way too many other places to dine at.
