  • I had the Macadamia nut encrusted
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/23/2008
    I had the Macadamia nut encrusted fillet of snapper and my GF had the ribs. Both were excellent! Service was very good. The decor was not fancy but nice. It did seem that there was too much noise mostly from customers. I did not like the decaf coffee and it looked like they use skim milk for creamer(yuk). Overall, I was very satisfied and my GF and I plan to return.

    Went for the Restaurant week promo, ordered dinner at 7:15 and they were out of the fish selection, would be understandable had they been busy, ordered a coffee drink with desert and they were out of whip cream. This is a joke for a restaurant with these prices and reputation. Definitley mismanaged will not go back nor would I recommend this location. Have been to other location in Naples Fl. on numerous occassions and never experienced them running out of anything.

    I always enjoy my visit to this restaurant although I will say the bar staff is not nearly as congenial as the wait staff and not as willing to accomodate a change to a menu item. My husband and I enjoy sittng at the bar for lunch but when we ask for something like -- sauce on the side, grilled vs. raw onions, a light amount of sauce on the tossed salad.... we get the rolled-back, evil eye. The table-side staff is so accomodation and Manager Joe is just GREAT. I would like this comment to go to the restaurant but there is not enough allowable caracters below in "Note to the Restaurant" section.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    What a great experience... As a former restaurant GM my tastes/standards are very high and they were met by the Tommy Bahama Tropical Cafe! I had been there when they first opened and was not impressed by the menu or the service but they have since improved. My date and I arrived at 9pm on a Friday night. We were seated immediately in the "patio room" with gorgeous views all around. Our server came immediately & took our drink order and offered suggestions for our meal. We started with their signature coconut shrimp, excellent, then I ordered the "cowboy" fillet, his recommendation which was excellent, & my date ordered the NY strip which was excellent. We finished off our meal with their famous Pina Collata cake. Food & service

    Service impeccable, food outstanding. The best experience we've had at Tommy Bahama's (though we've never had a bad experience there). The Cafe Manager visited our table and was especially friendly and accomodating. Once he found out we were visiting Maui very soon - he recommended several "things to do". Additionally, he introduced us to one of the managers getting ready to transfer to Hawaii in order that we might "have a friend" when we visit the Tommy Bahama's in Hawaii - great touch.

    The service was very good. On the negative, you don't make customers wait at the door and then tell them they HAVE to pay their drinks separetly from their dinner tab when part of the pleasure is precisely that, having your drink before dinner at your dinner table with your party. And it's my drink and dinner tab so what difference does it make? The music was nice, by that, I mean pleasant as to the ambience, but extremely loud making it very difficult to talk at the dinner table. Sore spot with me. Otherwise, very very nice and I would return.

    Great service, the menu is a little pricey for the portions (I had the mahi sandwich). The women’s restroom had a plumbing problem and the door was propped open and a horrible smell was coming into the bar area. It's a good thing it happened after our meal or we would have gone somewhere else.

    elevator didn't work when we got there (indoor dining only in dining room upstairs--also 100 degrees that day) and we had a handicapped person in our party. We left but eventually were called back as the repairman got it to work for us. When leaving, we were notified it was again, broken, but were able to get it to work somehow. Server was friendly but disappeared frequently. Far too dark for anyone to read the bill and, in fact, I just realized that gratuity may have already been added and we didn't even notice--i.e. couldn't read it! (party of 7) Maybe that's why it seemed pricey. Waitress did offer complimentary dessert as it was a special occasion for someone in our group.We took one.

    Most impressive was one of the hostesses. We first went to the hostess stand on the first floor, the hostess at that stand informed us that if we had a reservation we had to check-in upstairs. When I inqured if we could sit outside, I was told we could not that the patio was for walk-ins only and there was no current availability. A different hostess, the impressive one, watched this exchange and proceeded to followed us upstairs and spoke with the hostess upstairs to make sure we got a table as close to outside as possible - that was really kind and observant of her.

    My husband and I have been to Tommy Bahama's several times, we enjoy it very much and always like to take out of town guests there. The food as usual is excellent. However, we were very disappointed with the service, expecially considering you are at a nice restaruant trying to enjoy your company. On this occassion we felt very rushed, as if our server wanted us out of there asap. We just received our first cocktail order and appetizers when our main dishes came out. We were stunned that we were so rushed, and our server was more or less an order taker not that welcoming. Further, we were never offered dessert at the end or our meal or for any additional drink orders. We had to ask for refills on our waters and ice tea.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/5/2008
    The food and the atmosphere were lovely. The only set back to speak of was the waitress we had that evening. She appeared to be a little fidgety, it made us a little nervous when she would bang dishes together because her hands were shaky and she was moving very fast. She also seemed to be less attentive to the women at the table but was very accomodating to the men. For example, the women had to request more water where the men were asked frequently if they needed anything at all. If we could guarantee not getting that same waitress, we would go back every day and take all our friends!

    We were very disappointed with this restaurant. We frequent the one in Newport Beach and love it. We were ignored by our waiter for most of the meal. We saw him twice:to take the order and to hand us the bill. I ordered a glass of wine that came to the table filled about a 1/4 of the way. I assume it was the end of the bottle. We then waited for about 15 mins trying to get the waiters attention. When that didn't happen I went ahead and started drinking, because I was wasting my dining time. When I finally mentioned the issue to the waiter at the end of the meal, he appologized, but didn't offer to add to the glass to remove it from my bill. The food was very mediocre and way overpriced. Awful! A shame as we've a condo nearby; won't go back!

    We've eaten at Tommy Bahama's in Palm Springs and were excited to take our friends to the one in Scottsdale. The food was as good as always, but the ambiance was completely different. This one was more of a strip mall location (albeit a nice strip mall) without a lot of charm. Palm Springs also has someone playing steal drums which adds much more to the charm. Not sure we'll go back to the Scottsdale location since there are so many other great restaurants there.

    We thought the bill was high for the type of restaurant this is. $37.00 for our entree, which was the special that night, and we were not told what the price was. $170.00 for 2 entrees, 2 salads, 2 drinks and 2 glasses of wine + tip. I would probably dine there again, but I feel the entree prices are too high.
