Coral Reef or Chefs de France

My family is going for four nights this December and we are trying to figure out our last ADR. I think we have narrowed it down to Coral Reef or Chefs de France. Which one is better food wise? Several people in my party are big steak eaters if that helps.

Both are great restaurants but I wouldn't order the steak at either. The best steak places count as two. After that, Ohana would be the next choice. Check out the menus online.

Both are good. I agree not the best steak places though. If you do Coral Reef you often have to wait 30 or 40 minutes even with an ADR. The restaurant is small and can get backed up. Last time at Chefs, the head waiter brought around a small animatronic Ratatouille. Very fun if you have kids in your party.

Neither are great but Coral Reef has the aquariums and Chefs has Remy!

Personally we think Chefs is a must do. Never been to Coral Reef.

We eaten at both a few times and though neither is great Coral Reef is better to us. We like the uniqueness of the aquarium and I have enjoyed the steak there. The steak we had on our last visit to Chefs was very thin and my teenage son who will eat nearly anything didn't finish it. I think the desserts are better at CR if you plan on dessert. If you are really into good steaks we like Yachtsman steak house a lot and it's only a 10 min walk from Epcot.

Chefs was good whenever we have gone there, but Remy isn't there any longer. So sad. He was cute.

Chefs.
Neither are spectacular, but I'd choose Chefs based on food quality. Coral Reef is not what it once was.

Between these two there is an easy choice, Chefs. Their food and service is much better than what you get at CR.
