We had a relaxing, delightful lunch. Seated on lower row so had perfect view of the rays and sharks and fish. Plenty of room between tables. Service was excellent. A little pricy but that's what the Disney Dining Plan us for!! Food excellent and elegant The steak was not great, but all of the seafood dishes and desserts were wonderful.... More

I have never written a 1 star review until today. This was a legitimately bad experience. Our waitress was rude and the food was not good. They offer 1 vegetarian entree and my daughter ordered it since she is a vegetarian. It was terrible. She couldn't eat it. This was the worst meal we've ever had at a Disney restaurant.

The atmosphere includes a massive aquarium with sharks that can be seen from any seat in the restaurant. Decor and menu choices compliment this. I had lobster soup and steak. Prices are a little high but well worth it for the experience. I have eaten at this restaurant at least once per visit while in Disney. It has changed over... More

Is a Restaurant that is located within Epcot, a la carte menu. Before entering, a few meters you will find everything related to the sea, Nemo is great, and in the hall while you wait for your table, you notice the elegance of this. The big salon is giant, its beautiful blue background, which are great fishponds gives you a... More

It had been about 30 years since my last visit to this restaurant. The food was excellent. This restaurant is off the main path so it might be easier to snag a reservation. I was very happy with the service.

Back in 2008 I came here with my family and absolutely loved it. They had an amazing steak and the sea life was awesome. So finally we had a chance to eat here again in October of 2016 and things have certainly changed. First off, our waitress was having a tough time. I don't blame anything on her but she... More

Tried be too fancy. Fish cooked well, but accompaniments just did not work. Far too complex, would be better with simpler attempts. Views excellent and service good, however.

Family of four ate here with dinner reservations on New Year's Eve. Unfortunately, we waited nearly an hour even with a reservation made months in advance. However, once we actually received our table, our service was excellent. Our server quickly brought hot bread and butter to our table. Three of us ordered the steak which came with mashed potatoes and... More

Recently learning gluten was keeping me sick, I thought dining out would present a real challenge. DISNEY is on top of their game catering to any food allergy you may have! 95% of their gourmet menu is gluten free! They choose to prepare and cook without it and you would never feel deprived in any way! I ordered a special... More

It's a staple. From being seated within view of 4 large underwater viewing windows. To excellent service and food the Corel reef always has us coming back. Low key and quiet away from the rush and noise of the outside crowds. Have never had bad service. Is part of the meal plan so splurge with something extravagant and different
