Waiter kept bothering us
We had a table of six and the service could not have been better! Nathan was our main server but there was a team and they were excellent. All of the food was fantastic until the entrees came. Those of us who ordered fish were very happy but half the table ordered steak and it was tough. The steak was cooked properly ( med rare in some cases), but was barely able to be cut with a steak knife. We were disappointed in the main meal but everything else was top notch. Stick with the fish, it was fantastic!
Excellent but a little pricy . Quiet with with top level service and great food. Date restaurant.
We went for an early valentines day and it was an amazing sunset and good view of the beach. I would for sure like to go back.
Had both dinner and Sunday Brunch. Good selection at Brunch, although deserts a little bland.
Good service. Interesting choices on main menu. Crab cake excellent
We arrived early and enjoyed drinks on the deck before entering the dining room. I wanted to try the grouper, for which the area is famous. I ordered the prix fixe dinner option (with choices for each course), and it was delicious, and a good value. I selected the tuna roll, the tomato soup, the grouper, and creme brulee for dessert. My husband had the veal, also excellent. We timed our reservation just right and enjoyed a beautiful sunset view. Our waiter did a good job of offering suggestions and was initially very attentive, but didn't check back with us that much later on, which would have been nice. Overall, an excellent meal and experience.
I made this reservation 4 months in advance for a Birthday dinner. I requested a window table. When we arrived at the restaurant there was not a window table reserved for us. When we inquired as to why since our reservation was made 4 months ago, we were RUDELY told that they do not reserve window tables but it is on a first come first serve basis. We were not told of this policy when we booked. We were disappointed about the window table but understood the restaurant's policy. What upset us was the manager's attitude.....very non-caring and the manager basically said if you don't like our rules, then get out. Even though I mentioned a special occasion of a birthday when I made the reservation and also mentioned it to the manager upon checking in, nothing special was done for the birthday, ie - free dessert, etc. As far as the food, we waited 45 minutes for our meal after appetizers were served. The filet steak was over done and hard as a rock to cut through. The salmon was ordered medium and was over cooked past well done. This would NOT be a restaurant that would deserve our recommendations.
Fabulous food and service. The view was amazing. People at the next table were a little loud but wasn't a total turn-off. We learned an awful lot about them! Definitely not the fault of the restaurant.
Everyone should eat here at least once. It's amazing
Excellent food, service, and views! We are local and this was our second visit. The review could end there, right? But I have to say, every bit of food was delicious. I had the Braised Short Ribs appetizer (perfect), the garden salad (exactly what you want in a salad and pretty enough for a picture!), the Cod (unbelievably well prepared and exceptionally tasty), and the Crème Brulee desert (done just right). The two person serving team was very attentive but not obtrusive and helped with questions on the menu. The view is absolutely perfect Florida Beach. Time your arrival 30 + minutes before sunset and you will have an amazing show throughout your entire dinner.
While the waiter and manager were very attentive, the service was very slow. We waited more than 45 minutes to get our appetizers. And then a long wait for the main courses. My sole was over cooked so the manger brought me a filet steak instead. Another long wait. The steak was very good.
The place is always a pleasure to visit. We live in Tampa and don’t mind the drive. The food is great and so is the service.
I surprised my hubby with a stay at the hotel and opted for dinner at Carettas....The atmosphere is gorgeous, our server Dane was awesome! He was on top of his game. Both he and Michael were so...helpful when we came across an issue with a class in our appt times with dinner vs the spa. We truly appreciated how they helped us work through it. Customer service goes a LONG way! Thanks again!
The food was very fresh and delicious! We would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning for another visit.
Everything was wonderful if you want to experience Sunday brunch in a beautiful, relaxed setting.
Lovely brunch with outside sitting overlooking the beach and pool. Good food with ample variety. Great location and beautiful hotel. Thanks will come back.
This meal was perfect in every way. The four course tasting menu had all the selections I desired. The crab cake was perfect with a spicy aioli. The garden salad was a work of art with a beautifully composed selection of lightly dressed vegetables. The black grouper was seared with a nice crust and served on a bed of favorful risotto, artichokes and mushrooms that was perfect with a pinot noir. The blackberry sorbet was a cool ending. The service by Nate and Todd was perfect.
Michelle in the Dining Room and Sam in the bar are fantastic! Weekends are really fun.
The ambiance cannot be beat but and although the appetizers were great, the dinner portions were small for the price.Service was fantastic and the valet parking was very convenient.
Disappointing from our expectations.
Nice experience, but selection at the buffet seems to have gone down.
