Extensive wine list, great food, atmosphere is delightful and staff friendly & accommodating. We stayed at the resort for the holiday weekend and dined there each night. We love Maritana grill and will recommend to friends. We plan to return to this great restaurant. Thank you!"

  • "Our group of six was seated immediately, followed by solid service that was attentive but not intrusive. Drink orders included a fabulous Pink Pearl cocktail, a nice mix of Chambourd and Champagne. Others had the Fashion Week, a sultry sip updating the Old Fashioned, a divine Hendryx Gin and tonic with lime, and a choices from a good beer and wine list. Appetizers were interesting as well as delicious. Entrees exceeded expectations, from the Cobia to the perfectly seared scallops with flavorful larder and several fish choices. Desserts were artful and tasty, but the cheesecake with brulee crust was exceptionally smooth and good. A great experience on a holiday evening, sending us out for fireworks just in time. In a word, wonderful."

  • "This is an expensive dining experience, and the food was very good but not as elegant or exotic/good as comparably priced restaurants. I think it either needs to be more casual with a tapas style menu or move to the full elegant with a number of signature dishes but also multiple tastings menu with full menu variety and wine pairing and customization of the actual menu item. For example, a filet full or foie gras is a turn off for the person that love filet and wants to see it paired with a lobster, scallop or oyster or other sides from other meals. I felt that the quality and service were very good bit overall this was overpriced especially considering the other choices in the area for true fine dining."

  • "Our server was really slow getting to us. We waited 10 mins before she came over. I ordered the steak and it was not a filet mignon like she said but more like a roast. I also didn't know a steak did not come with a potato."

  • "Atmosphere great, but Oceana fixed price menu menu not a good value. Portions way too small and taste average. Reality did not match menu descriptions. Maybe it would have been better to select from the regular menu. I would give the place another try."

  • "We had eaten here 2 times before and the food was wonderful - restaurant is beautiful and service good . We had party of 6 and had made reservations 2 weeks in advance. There was also a party of approx 16 and some smaller parties but restaurant wasn't full. We sat at 745 and ordered our entrees. Food not served until after 945 !!!! FINALLY told the large party had backed up kitchen !! We ordered dessert after dinner arrived just to beat the other table. The poor planning was quite surprising from a Loews and lack of info from staff and manager until I started asking at 9 wasn't handled well. They comped appetizers but would much rather had eaten and been out in less than 2.45 hours!! But will go back again - food was that excellent "

  • "This was our first time here! My daughter and I were celebrating my birthday by staying at the Don and someone told us we had to try the Maritana!! Our waiter done a great job at explaining everything that was brought to our table. The food was presented so beautifully and they even added a little something special to the dessert for my birthday. We would recommend it to everyone staying at the Don and anyone who would like a memorable upscale dining experience! It was perfect!"

  • "Our Anniversary celebration dinner at Maritana Grille on May 17th, 2014 was absolutely wonderful! The food and presentation was outstanding. The service was terrific but unfortunately I can't remember his name. Our server recommended a red wine was excellent and he even suggested that I take a photo of the label for future reference. I felt that he went out of his way to make our evening special. Our topic of discussion the next day, for most of the day, was how excellent dinner was at the Maritana Grille. "

  • "We celebrated my husband's birthday at the Maritan Grille. Everything was perfect. I had called ahead to request a slice of cake or other dessert to be served with a lighted candle and our attentive waiter served a special dessert called "the reveal." Under a dome of white chocolate there was a beautiful citrus flan, revealed when our waiter poured hot mango sauce on it and the dome melted away. A truly delightful was to finish an excellent dinner. We'll be back."

  • "We have been to Maritana many times, enjoying the chef's wonderful and creative constructions. He is one of the few in the area that keeps his menu fresh and exciting. The wine list works very well with the menu (although they can use a few more French white selections), and fairly priced."

  • "what a beautiful restaurant in the don cesar. We were seated at a table with drunk noisey people next to us so we asked the hostess if we can be moved and she did, that would have ruined my whole experience. anyway started with the cheese plate so good, had the cobia with gnocchi and that was so tasty, two large pieces of fish the hubby had the scallops he loved his so full could not have dessert but it looked great. service is so good as well"

  • "We ate here twice. The first was on a Friday night. We had an absolutely fantastic evening all around. It was simply perfect. We loved it so much we went again on Sunday night. Clearly the chef had a night off. The food was notably deficient from our initial visit. I would still recommend but in future I will inquire about the regular chef."

We had the tasting menu, and I had the wine pairing too (husband had to drive, unfortunately). Everything was so delicious, the pairings were just great, and our server was wonderful. We'll be back next time we're on vacation in the area!"

The service was outstanding and I took note of the fact that we were allowed to dine at our own pace, which made dining here even that much more enjoyable. The menu selections were creative and we appreciate the highlights that include Gulf seafood."

  • "For the third year in a row, I have enjoyed a fabulous birthday meal at Maritania. Everything was "as good as it gets". We shared four appetizers: beet salad; fois gras duo; sweetbreads and pork belly. It was plenty of food for two hungry diners. There are the extra touches - amuse bouches, even a tiny sweet in case you don't have room for dessert. The setting is contemporary, with lovely fish tanks. Our waiter Brad, was very well informed and just attentive enough. Upon completion of the meal he took us into the kitchen area to see the site of the "Chef's table" where small groups of 2 - 6 can enjoy a fabulous dining experience served directly by the chef. Wonderful wine list, too. Come hungry, bring money - but it is worth it!"

  • "As a location and for ambiance the MARITANA was perfect. The service was excellent. But I have to give 3 stars to the food. There was much more effort put into the presentation than content. The amuse bouche was delightful. Crab cakes were perfect and a generous portions compared to the beet salad which was very tasty but 4 micro leaves of arugula does not a salad make. Intermezzo was a refreshing sorbet of 3 tangy fruits. The sea bass was a soupy mess. The bean and sausage base did nothing to enhance the delicious fish. Would not order again. The red snapper w quinoa was delicious but a bit dry and could use a squiggle of some sauce. The REVEAL was Devine on all levels. You should go just for this visually amazing dessert. Outstanding!"
