This restaurant is set in what feels like a grotto. There are great views of the aquarium as the tables are tiered as you are further away from the view. It was quite refreshing. I ordered the mahi-mahi mahi-mahi with mango shrimp salsa and it...More

The aquarium makes for very nice scenery. The food was very good, as was the service. Out of 18 meals at Disney, this was one of our top 5.

Review should be 4.5 star, but that's not an option. A very good meal, but definitely a step down from our last visit. Portions seemed smaller and plates seemed a lot emptier than our last meal, but still quite tasty.

The worst part was the service! Forget the usual Disney level of quality service. We were not given refill on tea or coffee, and we only saw the server when we ordered. It took her 8 minutes to bring me change and then she tried...More

We walked in at 5:15 without a reservation and were able to get seated immediately! It was even better that they put us at a table right next to the tank. Food choices are very limited, especially if you don't like seafood but still very...More

visiting Disney during Halloween week. I looked to reserve and that time is greyed out. Is it too early or is this restaurant not open then?

hi! its actually too early if you have your disney dinning plan you can only reserve reservation 60 days in advance. =)
I planned on visiting the restaurant in late May early June and I was wondering if more choices would be added to the menu, not a lot on the menu to choose from.

I've dined at Coral Reef since it opened, and I never recall it having a particularly big menu. If you need a variation on a menu item, or something not on the menu, you can always request to speak with the chef. The last... More
