A word from Coral Seafood - Worcester
Why does our seafood taste so good? We hand select our fish directly from the source at the Boston Fish Pier. We never get our fish delivered by a third party. All our fish is brought in our own truck. We hold our fish in specially designed Refrigerators that have oversized cooling capacity to maintain the fish at a perfect temperature. Since we go to Boston Daily, We buy just what we need for that day. We throw away any fish that does not meet our quality specifications.

    the service was slow and inconsistent. the waiter seemed to have an attitude. food was inconsistent as well. the pomegranate martinis were terrible and send back. a bowl of chowder was forgotten. overall not a good experience at all.

    Have been to Coral many times and am always pleased with the quality and freshness of their seafood. This time there were 5 of us celebrating my sister and my daughter-in-law's birthdays. We were all pleased with our meals. Would highly recommend it. Mike was a great waiter. Very friendly and attentive.

    This was a first time visit to the Coral Seafood Restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised by the experience. In addition, on this night there was a jazz trio playing. They were a nice addition to our dinning experience. The sound of the trio was just right for back ground music. We will go again.

    We had a nice Father's Day dinner at. Coral Seafoods. The lobster my son got was great and my husband and I enjoyed the large scallops. The waiter was excellent and the menu was quite large.

    Coral Seafood does seafood well. My grilled shrimp, 7 large, were more than I could eat. Service was good and attentive. On this Saturday evening, we were curious about how slow business was, many empty tables for a place with a good reputation but being in the restaurant business ourselves, we understand ebbs and flows. The crowning glory in my opinion, was the jazz trio they had playing in the dining room. Excellent musicians playing all the standards from the American Songbook. A much preferred, by me, dining addition than heavy rock played loudly enough to drown out conversation. Job well done.

    Coral Seafood offers guests an overall wonderful experience. The seafood is fresh and uniquely presented. Our server was polite, prompt but non-intrusive. We enjoyed the ambiance and décor very much. We will definitely return in the future.

    The restaurant is getting a very "tired look". The meal was OK but not exceptional, our waitress was very good.

    The server said she could not make a Mai-to. And then when we ordered a Long Island ice tea she said she would have to google it. It fortunately came out tasting fine. My husband had raw scallops and dry tough shrimp in his baked dish. While mine was tasty it was so heavy. Dessert menu average. The kicker was the booth was dingy and the menus were dirty and the plastic cracked. We will not strays from 111 or the sole again. They are superior

    I have had an excellent experience at this restaurant in the past, so for my mother-in-law's birthday, we wanted to take her out for a special birthday meal at this restaurant. The restaurant was not crowded, but there was a large function going on upstairs and this is the main reason why I think our experience was not good. From the time we sat down, it took an exceedingly long time to receive our meals and when we did receive our meals, the server brought them out at different times, so we were all left waiting for several minutes to eat because everyone had not yet received their meals. Then, my mother-in-law's salmon was under-cooked and she was only able to eat part of it. But, our server was very pleasant despite slow kitchen times.

    We have eaten here before and had great food, great service and great ambience. This time, the food was just a little humdrum and there were no specials that called out to us. The lobsters that day were around 1 pounders which makes for a puny lobster. There were several parties going on (one upstairs only visible, not heard and the other right next to us but not too loud). The problem was the sound level of the band playing their music-it got so we were having to raise our voices to be heard at our table. We were actually glad when it was time to leave into the relative quiet of outside. Maybe turn down the sound system or just have music without vocals as that was what contributed most to the sound levels.

    Food was amazing and waitress was attentive but not overbearing! I did not love my first time at Coral Seafood a few years ago (my scallops were overdone and my vegetables were undercooked), but am so glad I tried it again!!!

    Food - OK, service - horrible. We had to wait much longer than expected for everything, from meeting our server to getting our entrees to paying the check. The server said 3 times he would refill our water and never did. Not planning to go back.

    This is a great restaurant with a good menu. The prices were less than other sea food restaurants in town. The tables are nicely spaced apart, allowing for privacy, and the portions were large! I would definitely go back here again.
