The food was good, the issue was with how closely we were to the other guests. The restaurant was not packed and we grouped closely together and didn't really feel as safe as we have felt at other dining locations.

Been trying to go here for awhile and hadn't been able too. Decided to try it when we stayed at a nearby Disney resort last Friday night.The restaurant is beautiful and we had a fabulous server. We took advantage of their magical dining menu which was a great value. The classic chowder and pork bao bun taco were very good first courses. We had the simply fish and the linguini. I do wish I had one more clam on my pasta but it was very good. I liked my cocktail but we didn't care for the whiskey in the old fashioned. Dessert was a work of art especially the strawberry angel food cake. We'll be back. It's great for date night or special occasions

The experience was phenomenal. Jenny, our waitress, made the experience even better.Har personality and knowledge was beyond fantastic. Food was great, from appetizers to dessert ( and we experienced pretty much everything because we ordered different everything so we could taste everything). Drinks were great, we had a martini and a new fashion. It was a weekly date night date for us and hands down, we will add this to our list of restaurants to try again and again. It was free valet parking because we dined at the restaurant. Please Enjoy as much as we did.

Food was amazing. Restaurant look is beautifully done. My second time going. Service also great. We did magical dining so it was nice to try new options this time. Hotel is also very nice with a beautiful atrium and bar. Would love to stay here and go to Disney. I am so glad they were back on magical dining this year.

It seemed to be hit or miss. My steak had good flavor and my scallop appetizer was excellent. But my chef wife was very underwhelmed by her ricotta pasta and she used to really like Todd English.

Food and service were excellent. Started with scallops and short rib appetizer, which was delicious. Ceasar salad was as good as I’ve ever had. Entrees were mahi mahi and snapper, and both were excellent. Would definitely return.

We did the Magical Dining. The Pros were that there was a huge amount of food and it was high quality. The Cons were the hostess at the front desk had an attitude which I didn't appreciate. Secondly I had to send my fish back because it was overcooked and the second time around, which took an excess of 10 minutes, it was the same situation.

I have never eaten here before, so I decided to try the magical dining experience. I ordered the pork belly boas for my appetizer, simply fish for my entree, and the strawberry angel food cake for my dessert.

My waitress’s name was Niki, and she was SO attentive!!
I ate dinner by myself and it was really nice having someone take care of me. She made sure my tea always had hot water in it.

Sam was also someone helping to attend the tables. When he saw that my water was almost gone...he would always make sure to fill it up and clean the table of my dirty dishes.

All the food was divine! The only tiny suggestion that I have for the boa buns is more sauce (they only give you 3 dots) and more veggies! My boa buns only had 2-3 string size pieces of veggies and pickles on the side. It was delicious but gone in one tiny bite!

The fish and risotto was perfection. They served the wine wine sauce in the CUTEST mini sauce pan.

I know the dessert may sound boring...but it was truly the perfect choice. Fruity and light. The perfect way to end a dinner.

Could not have been more disappointed. Do not recommend. Went for Magical Dining. They do not need to participate next year. The odor was terrible, the photos of the restaurant show great lighting, it was dark and it seem like we were in a disco with loud music. The waitress was pushy and asked 6 time how was our food. We were in an out in 55 minutes. The risotto was bland, the cobia was good and well cooked, the plate had no pizzaz, all white and bland. Thank you Disney. Oh the wine list was super expensive and the wine by the glass was $14.00 and not good. Will not return. And we are locals not tourists.

Not for a Magical Dining experience… the food was mediocre: the linguini and salmon, the desert (chocolate cake and the strawberry one) was not good either: almost tasteless … the presentation was alright, however it did not make up for the taste. However, I would not go back for regular dining either. No ambiance… and the food is not worth the price. Not for my taste.

This has always been one of our favorite restaurants at the Swan & Dolphin resort. It’s definitely on the expensive side but the food is very good and the service is excellent.

For starters, Server was delightful. Food portions were sadly quite small. The potatoes you only got about3 of them, each of these three were the size of a marble. Steak was fatty and also don't think it was portioned to a full 6 oz. The kitchen is cutting corners, and it really shows. Surprisingly for what was a seafood place, very few quality fish selections were available. Selections similar to what had been offered previously. There was no Atlantic Char, seabass, even trout would have been nice. No longer the dancing fish that was fun to watch - used to be a great raw bar and its gone now. Now it smelled disappointingly like a Gortons processing plant. For example; only tuna, salmon etc. was offered. Fairly cheap ingredients for this level of dining, and WAY overpriced for the lesser quality anticipated, sorry but portions are small. no salads come with the mains either. Herbed butter is very strange considering it was not actually butter, it was some cheap processed whipped oils being passed off as butter with strong herbs so you wouldnt notice. I worked in this industry and have owned a restaurant before, so Im well versed in this trade. However a few of your servers were very personable and attentive. Wine list was extensive and although again overpriced a few decent selections. The place seemed clean and otherwise well appointed. I hope BlueZoo can return to its former fine dining experience. Hopefully you all will bounce back. One other odd thing was seeing a pasta on the menu called "nudi" which is filling but without the pasta. I thought the chef was kidding. Alas, not. Why would someone order a plate of pasta without the actual pasta included? The menu just doesn't provide much to get excited about, however maybe you all will get back to your former glory! Best of luck Blue Zoo ~*~*
