We went with 7 of us and the bill ended up being around $800. We got appetizers, entrees and dessert. The waiter did a great job of explaining all the different fish selections, etc. Atmosphere was good and dinner took about 2.5 hours.. kind of an odd location in Disney but it works.

The bartenders were quite friendly and accomodating (Justin, Danny and Danny) but when we were seated for dinner, the server was very stiff and unfriendly. Next time we should consider eating at the bar.

Celebrated anniversary dinner at Blue zoo a few weeks ago. We were going out and drinking some after dinner, so we did not want to eat too much. So we did not partake in any of the appetizers but they all looked great. I had the Tempura Lobster, I thought it was very good, but the batter was thicker then... More

Have eaten here a few times when staying at Disney World. Have had excellent food every time. Service is top notch. Atmosphere is contemporary. Fine dining, more relaxed than restaurants at Epcot. Easy to get there, located in the Dolphin on the boardwalk. Love the Sea bass.

On our last night we went here with our 2 grandkids. Turned out to be a fabulous choice for everyone. Ask to sit in the large bar area as the prices are extremely reasonable for the serving sizes. If I lived in the Orlando area this is a restaurant we would go to once a month.

I remember when Todd English opened Olive's in Charlestown (Boston)...people stood in line outside in the cold to get a table for months after Olive's opened...the place was a sensation. I recently attended a conference in the Dolphin Hotel on Disney property and ate alone at the Blue Zoo bar one night hoping to be blown away by a great... More

Fantastic experience. Food was amazing, oysters, fresh catch and excellent service. Ulyana our cocktail server in the bar area was really, really knowledgable about the menu and helped with our selections. We will certainly be back for our next business trip to Orlando.

We came into Orlando for a conference and this place was in the hotel. We went appetizer crazy and shared. We had no complaints and the food was exceptional. The vibe is very relaxed and, aside from a slight Disney price bump, there are no detractors.

The Blue Zoo is a cool place but a bit pricey. Stick with the lounge menu and arrive for happy hour and you'll be good to go. The food is very good though especially for a tourist/convention hotel situated in the Disney park areas.

This place is not what you expect. My food was so cold. I when I bit into I yelled shamalla because of how bad it was. I then asked for another dish of the fish sticks and they brought me Salome on rye. I had enough and asked for a Coke and then I got ketchup and fell to floor... More
