My family has been going to DisneyWorld every year since 1997. We stay for about 11 days and love trying new restaurants. We discovered blue zoo last year when we ventured out from the regular Disney properties and went to the bluezoo for dinner ( we walked there from Hollywood studios). The food, service, ambience was so great we made sure to go her fr diner this year as well.

I am glad to say that NOTHING as changed!! The food was fantastic ( best homemade pasta I've had in a long time, great fish entree, and heavenly desserts to name jut a few highlights). All the personnel from server to manager are friendly, caring, and compassionate. This is one of the best restaurants we have even at anywhere. If you come to Orlando this should be a must visit. Thanks blue zoo!!!

Only our waitress kept this from being a perfect dining experience. At 8:15 on a Sunday it was relatively quiet, but our waitress seemed in a hurry to be elsewhere. I told her I was having difficulty choosing a wine (all super expensive) but she just walked away rather than offer to help. We had questions about the appetizers and again she left saying she'd give us more time without offering any advice. When we were clearly more than ready to order, she spent forever socializing with the family at the next table.

All the food, however, was outstanding. Loved the very unusual Kale salad. Another in our party raved about the beet salad. Fish is their strong suit. The sea bass was wonderfully prepared as was the "dancing fish" which is filleted at tableside. Also, the "simply fish"--choice of simply prepared fresh catch with a sauce--was excellent.

Two adults, two children, fantastic bread, great fish and deserts. The decor was lovely deep turquoise and copper, very unique feel to the restaurant. Our children were treated with a great deal of respect and the staff were very friendly and "real". No stuffy dining here!

If I had to pick anything to improve on, it would be the waiting area. No room to sit, or even stand really. The hostess didn't seem concerned about it either, which was off-putting.

Overall, a fantastic experience, second only to Le Cellier and Lobstahs for places we've eaten in Florida so far ;)

Oh! And if you have children, it's the perfect excuse to order the children's dessert! Over the top!

Did not have the pleasure of being able to dine in the dining room, however a friend and I sat in the bar area. Served by an extremely friendly and knowledgable server. We enjoyed two appetizers- the sea scallops with cauliflower purée (which could be put in a cup to drink on its own!) the scallops literally melted in your mouth. Absolutely delectable! The second appetizer was a delight! We had the tuna tartare with a major twist! It comes with dry ice within the meal and the server did something that made me laugh harder than I have in the longest time. If you'd like to know what they did then you must go and order this as an appetizer. We also enjoyed an award wining cocktail "serenity" by one of their very own! It was bursting with flavor!
Needless to say, you may look at the "terrible" reviews of blue zoo and notice that these folks may not exactly be well traveled or clearly expect portion sizes that fit the size of the person. Those of you who know how to enjoy fabulous food and drink and not have the need to stuff your face or nickel and dime... Then you will absolutely be delighted!
