“Always good”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

We have been coming here for years and we always look forward to our dinner here. The service and quality of food keeps bringing us back, and this was no exception on both counts.This visit produced one of our better meals and the absolute best dessert of our whole trip. Server was very good and personable. The décor is attractive and upbeat. We even loved the breads, especially the onion one. My son and I split the soft shell crabs and the whole lobster. The crabs were the only disappointment of the whole night. They came out alone on the plate and were salty and a little greasy, the flavor was good so maybe some type of accompaniment would have helped both issues. The lobster was very flavorful and we both enjoyed it very much. The others had the swordfish and they claimed it was one of the best they have ever had. Dessert, the chocolate banana torte was good and enjoyed by my wife and sister in law. Now for the best part, my son was disappointed that they had replaced his favorite dessert but, the new passion fruit cream puff with pineapple was a masterpiece of flavor, (please note that if you do not like pineapple you won't enjoy this as much as we did.). His new concern now was keeping the new cream puff on the menu for our next trip. The flavor popped in every bite and we had no choice but to order another one, even though we were full. My only regret was not ordering a couple more to go to enjoy later. Another good meal made better by an awesome dessert creation. This will continue to be one of our favorite restaurants, already looking forward to our next visit.

“Blue Zoo at the Disney Dolphin”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

My wife and I decided to spend a week in Disney for a very special anniversary. With us we had our children and grandchildren. A party of 12 which included a 3 and 4 year old and 2 infants. This is not the dream table for a server. Our waiter Brandon was the most patient, gracious and sincere person we had met at any restaurant this week. Getting seated with my group can be a chore. I had apologized to Brandon as my group decided who would sit next to who. Brandon said, "I'm here for you, just relax and enjoy." The food was great but that was secondary to the treatment we received. Without asking Brandon brought out the food for the two toddlers very quickly. We decided not to have desert because the two toddlers were getting restless and wanted to go to Downtown Disney. Brandon asked us to sit just one more minute and presented us with a desert with a candle so we could celebrate. Brandon made our dinner an experience that we will all cherish. Thank you Brandon.

“Super Fresh SEafood”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We returned here for the third time, on a weeknight. Not very busy. Service was relaxed, attentive, & very friendly. Raw oysters were top notch with a lot of options from both coasts. Worth every penny. The fish dishes we had were some of the best on property. Desserts were insanely good. The place is loud even when its not full, but the vibe on weekends is a real drw. Its great just to watch the action in the dining room, Sorta like a well choreagraphed dance number.

“Awesome service and awesome food”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

The Blue Zoo was one of our highlights on this past trip to Orlando. We spent every evening in the lounge enjoying the best nachos we have ever had. The crab nachos were absolutely amazing and the cocktails were unique, tasty, and full of flavor. All of the food we tried was exquisite. Take the time to try this restaurant out if you are in the area, and be sure to request Elizabeth as your server. Elizabeth gave nothing but top notch service and always went above and beyond our expectations.

“Good... But not great!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

18 dollar glass of wine = so so... Very limited menu with lots of sugary sauces.... Over priced and slightly over rated ... Good service, although they rushed us out...
