We had reservations but did not get seated until two hours later. None of the food we ordered was spectacular. The restaurant is so much smaller than I expected after looking at pictures. The aquarium was neat but would recommend not going to this restaurant and going to a dedicated aquarium instead. We loved every other restaurant we had reservations... More

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Epcot, this lovely restaurant is well worth seeking out. The entrance lobby is a long corridor that looks a little like a queuing area for an attraction, but instead opens up in to a large (72 tables from memory) space, one wall of which is mostly glass, a barrier between the restaurant and...

Like most WDW restaurants, this place is over priced but the food was tasty. Took a little while to be served but no crazy bad. A table next to the aquarium is the best, that's the whole reason for going there after all. Biggest problem is parents don't watch their kids and they will let them go up to the... More

Since our last visit about 1 1/2 yrs. ago the menu changes have spoiled what was one of our favorite restaurants at Epcot. We'll think twice before making reservations there again.

As every restaurant on the Disney premise is expensive, thus one was moderately expensive. The shrimp and grits were very good. The fish of the day was a red snapper and it was prepRed very well. The soup of the day was a seasonal vegetable soup and combined with a salad, this was very good also. The kids menu was... More

The restaraunt is beautiful, and the food is great. The dessert is exceptional and you can enjoy the huge aquariums from any seat.

Reservations are a must at nighttime if you are planning to go- it got booked pretty fast! Ask for a seat by the tank for the best view while you eat. The calamari appetizer is delicious. The waitress was very courteous and helpful, it was a pleasure to dine there. I had the New York steak and it was the... More

We have gone to the Coral Reef several times. We have always had good setvice and food there. The table views of the fish tank are great. We had reservations and were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation. We were seated, and we waited for a good 10 minutes before the server, Johmmie, came to greet us, although he... More

Ok, it wasn't really romantic. We had a reservation but still had to wait. Nobody seemed to care that it was our anniversary. I would've liked to sit closer to the aquarium, would've liked more individualized attention, would've liked a little more space from our fellow diners. I had an Abyss, a specialty drink to start. My husband had the... More

Food is OK but really nothing outstanding. I will say the ambience is pretty cool and it is part of the charm. You're eating on the opposite of the aquarium although you don't realize at first until start looking closely at the tank and pick out features that are very familiar. I have to admit that's pretty smart of the... More
