“Delicious food, but limited options”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

The cold hard truth is that this restaurant is at Disney World. So there were a lot of kids running around and screaming. It's not going to be a real fine dining experience. The ambiance is a bit off. I think every kid that entered the restaurant had to stick their hand into the waterfall fountain in the front... I realize I sound like a curmudgeon, but it’s one of the fancier places at Disney. They charge a lot for food and have tried to make the ambiance hip and sexy. It comes off as a playground instead.

The menu was ok. There were some raw bar options and appetizers. The entrees were a bit limited. They had about 5 kinds of fish. I had been expecting more shellfish and other options. I had the Cesar salad with a poached egg and the fish of the day, which was a triple tail. Both were great. The portions were smaller, but the food was good. The fish was cooked perfectly and came with an amazing lemony sauce. The prices were a little high, but once again that is Disney. All in all, one of the better meals available at Disney World.

“Very nice”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We thought this was a bit off putting as the waterfall wall means you cant see inside so were going to avoid as thought it may be too upmarket for our family. We decided to give it a try and were impressed. The staff were lovely, live music was great and we all enjoyed the food. It was not cheap but was memorable.. Very stylish inside.. Good sea food and some meat choices.

“Hands down - Best Seafood Resturant at Disney”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

My family and I have been coming to Disney for 16 years. The meals that we always remember first are Blue Zoo meals. It is a "Must Do" ! For appetizer try the "Chilled Poached Jumbo Shrimp" very fresh. For salad try the "Beet Salad". Most important is the Entree, "Simply Fish" with the warm crab meat sauce. ( you will want to drink all of it out of the bowl - it is that good!) As for the fish selection ask for the fish of the day. They select fantastic white , mild fresh fish. On our last visit it was "Tile Fish". WOW! One of the best waiters at Disney is Doug. He makes great suggestions and the service is perfection. Always we have a visit from Chad the Manager, what a great combination of food, friends and family. Tell them you want the meal that the Wolfe Family gets...
