    Doug - DM & DD15 going to WDW in June. Have ADR @ CR for dinner in Epcot. Never been. Have read some poor reviews on service and food quality/quanity. Any experience w/ this restaurant & any special recomendations you could give us? Thank you.


    I have eaten there, and I thought that the food was just fine. I thought that the seafood was good, though I will confess that I prefer the Flying Fish Cafe at the nearby Boardwalk. The price tag is high at both restaurants, but I feel like you get a better bang for your buck, food-wise at the Flying Fish.

    My concerns with Coral Reef are that I think the setting, while providing a wonderfully captivating view into the tanks of the Living Seas Pavilion, was a bit cold. Service, food quality, and food quantity were just fine.

    If your reason for eating here was strictly to get the best seafood possible, I would recommend switching to the Flying Fish. Otherwise I think you will find that the setting is pretty amazing, and one that your teen will find a nice change from some of the character-rich experiences that might start to get repetitive for her.

    Don't waste time fighting for a bottom row seat to get closer to the tanks. I prefer sitting in the middle row where I get a better look at all levels of the tank

    Glad to offer other dining recommendations if you let me know your interests!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
