      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Everything
      Cons: Nothing

      My husband and I ate here on 9/27/14 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were stuff from all of our food and wine eating throughout that day, and we still managed to happily eat 2 apps, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts. On top of the great food, the service was impeccable. Sometimes it is hard to get really great service in touristy spots because it is unlikely you will be a repeat customer. Not here. Todd was our server and he was the perfect balance of knowing when to show up and when to stay away. He was very knowledgeable and made the meal even better with his great service to match the great food.

      To start with, I got the drink "Serenity". Wow, was this thing good. Sucked it down in about 2 minutes and got another one (which I did drink a little more slowly). My husband got the "signature" or "most popular" -- can't remember which now. It was a lemonade/blueberry concoction that was good (but not as good as mine).

      We had the heirloom tomato salad and the yellowfin tuna tartar. Both were unique takes on routine dishes and we loved them both. It was nice to order something familiar and get something so special.

      My husband got the Miso Glazed Mero. That dish has Hawaiian Sea Bass which was spectacular. We normally eat Chilean Sea Bass so sea bass was familiar to him. He loved the Hawaiian as much if not more than the Chilean.

      I got a special of the night which was a filet medallions in a rich sauce with potatoes. It was juicy, tender, and cooked perfectly. I ate the entire plate (and remember, I was full).

      For dessert we had the signature truffles (all yummy) and the Citrus Pavlova (that was beyond fabulous). I know that Todd English is known for his truffles, but I found the Pavlova much more to my liking.

      We will absolutely be back on our next trip, and all thereafter. At least until we have tried everything on the menu. If our meal that night is any indication, we are missing out on some excellent, inventive food, accompanied by excellent service. For us, this is a "must do."

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fresh seafood, service, cocktail menu

      My husband and I dined here November 9, 2013 and had the best meal of our entire Disney trip.

      Over the last few years, we've found that many of the upscale Disney dining experiences have become a bit lackluster. Either the menus don't change at all, or they're reduced to accommodate less exotic tastes. Plus, it's always a bit unfortunate to have so little attention paid to dress codes at the fine dining restaurants.

      Bluezoo, however, was exceptional! The atmosphere was truly elegant without being stuffy and the staff was top-notch.

      Our meal started with outstanding cocktails created from house-made herbal infusions. The bread basket included light flatbreads and a smooth butter enhanced with nutmeg.

      The server was especially knowledgable about the menu and made some expert suggestions. Her recommendation of the tuna tartare was perfect! The tuna was tremendously delicate and included just a hint of cilantro for flavor.

      Our meals were just as good. I had the dirty south swordfish, which featured a smokey rub and wonderful tomato and shrimp sauce. As a side, I couldn't resist the grits, and was excited to find them every bit as good as the gourmet versions I've had in New Orleans. For dessert, my raspberry molten chocolate cake was perfect.

      Being located in the Dolphin hotel makes this restaurant a bit off the Disney path, but it's well worth the journey. A wonderful seasonal menu full of fresh seafood, exceptional service, and an overall upscale experience makes Bluezoo an ideal dining option for adults.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food and presentation
      Cons: Service

      The food was delicious. However, the service was extremely slow. Some of our entrees had to be sent back because they were cold. The manager visited our table and apologized. I would try Bluezoo again but not any time soon.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros):

      This is one of the few very expensive restaurants in Disney where I think the quality of the food really matches the prices. The dishes are innovative and unique and very well detailed. Presentation is great. This is a great adult place to go.

      For an appetizer, I had the tempura green beans with truffle aioli. It was pretty good, standard truffle dip. Some people in my party were very impressed by the clam chowder.

      I had the simply fish entree, bass, with the mustard and crab meat sauce. It was delicious! I really appreciated the side dished too. The pork dish was impressive as well.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): fabulous service and food quality
      Cons: none

      We had a wonderful meal at bluezoo. It has become one of our must do restaurants! Fabulous service, we never felt rushed...really well paced meal. It was an expensive meal but compared to the Disney signature places, worth every penny.

      I had the scallop appetizer and the chefs pasta with shrimp and crab. I loved every bite. My husband ordered the tuna appetizer and tuna entree. Both were excellent. My non-seafood eating 16 yr. old son ordered the filet and said it was the best steak of the week. My 18yr. old son enjoyed his wahoo with the warm crab-dijon sauce. Everyone loved their entrees.

      Desserts were also very good. My husband ordered a dessert wine that he enjoyed and I ordered a chocolate dessert that had 5 different bites...so good. My teenagers ordered the apple lasagna and some kind of molten chocolate dessert. We cleaned our plates.

      We will be back! We love this place!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): amazing food and service
      Cons: nothing

      I had one of the best meal experiences of my life here in late July. It was made all the sweeter by a $25 restaurant.com certificate combined with a $75 resort credit. However, if I'd paid for it all out of pocket, it would have been worth every penny. Our dinner reservation was early, and the restaurant was not at all crowded. The blue lighting and decor was soothing and peaceful after a hectic day. Service was just stellar from start to finish. Our waitress listened to my particular wine tastes as I was trying to decide what to order, and suggested bringing out two for me to try. I was amazed at how accurately she understood what I was seeking. Both wines were very good, one was phenomenal. We got the "Simply Fish" and "Dancing Fish" entree (snapper), both so good we were transported to culinary heaven. I have to say, after reading rather mixed reviews on this site in advance of my trip, my expectations going in were very modest. I could not have been more surprised - it was a wonderful dining experience that far surpassed my expectations.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Delicious food & drinks
      Cons: people not dressing for dinner

      The food here is some of the best around. Unfortunately it's in tourist hell, but most avoid it because of the prices and it's not exactly a good place for kids, at all!

      So we started with the Low country jumbo shrimp made with grilled shrimp, white cheddar hominy, okra, cherry tomatoes and a smoke bacon butter. OMG, it was soooo good. The hominy was a little runny for my taste but the rest of the dish made up for it. ($14)Hubby started with the yellowfin tuna tartare with miso cavier and a scallop cream with freeze dried pickled ginger cubes and wasabi powder. Just an amazing presentation! ($18)

      For dinner I had the heritage chicken ($29) The BEST chicken dish ever! Made with separate servings of white and thigh meat, smoked to a delicious doneness served with grains that were prepared like risotto, fave beans, English peas & maitake mushroom sauce. You can't believe the flavors in this dish.Then hubby had the dirty south swordfish ($34) served with risotto, littleneck clams, and rubbed with a barbeque sauce which is unlike any barbeque sauce you've ever had. It tasted like smoked tomatoes and spices, none of the ketchup crap most people call barbeque. Simply amazing.

      Usually when we go out I can taste a dish and duplicate it very closely to the original dish at home, These dishes I could not. It was molecular gastronomy at it's best!

      Yes, it is expensive. Very expensive, but oh so worth it. Service was nicely paced, never rushed, and always there when we needed it.

      Afterwards, we had drinks at the bar you can't even describe. Flaming oranges in tequila, pumpkin pie flavored cocktails, the tastes here just leave you breathless.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Location, atmosphere, best seafood
      Cons: A bit on the expensive side

      My husband and I ate at bluezoo last month -- we've eaten here several times before and it is one of our favorite restaurants at Disney World. This time did not disappoint. My husband started with a half-dozen oysters on the half-shell, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I started with the beet salad, drizzled with a bit of goat cheese sauce, and just loved it -- different colored beets made the presentation so nice, not to mention flavorful. For entree, my husband had the night's Dancing Fish, which was bass, I had the grouper with the crab and dijon mustard sauce. Both outstanding. Yet again, we were too full to try dessert. On the plus side, bluezoo now accepts the Tables in Wonderland 20% discount. We'll definitely be back.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great food & service, different
      Cons: Not a Disney feel

      Our 1st time venturing over to the Swan & Dolphin to eat. They're very nice hotels, but there is no Disney feel or theming here, which some folks might be looking for. That being said, the food was outstanding. DH and I shared a flatbread appetizer and then each had fish for our entree. The varieties of seafood offered were great and then the ability to choose sauces really made the meal. Our only food complaint was that we were too full to sample dessert.
