This place has everything going for it... besides the food! Such a wonderful atmosphere. What an experience to dine in an aquarium with exotic sea life swimming right next to you as you dine! If only the food matches up. The food at this place has to be some of the worst in Disney. It's. it good at all! I... More

Coral Reef Restaurant, located in Disney’s Epcot is wonderful in so many ways. Sitting in Future World, it is a great family friendly restaurant that boasts delicious food options and fun for the entire family. It is the perfect option for entertainment that does not break the bank like many other restaurants located on property, with tons of beautiful sights.... More

We made this a stop on our trip so my 4 year old could check out the large fish tanks. The staff was accommodating of our 3 children. We both ordered steaks and agree - this was the best steak during our entire Disney dining experience!! Though this is known for high end seafood, I highly recommend the steak! Great... 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 good, and the food was... More

I really want to love this restaurant. I really do. The views of the aquarium are spectacular, the waitstaff is wonderful to work with, although you can tell they are under a ton of pressure to rush you in and out, and the food is pretty good. But there's just something off. When this opened a few years ago, it... More

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

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
