    We came to kick off my daughters bachelorette celebration and had a lovely evening. The view, service and food were fantastic. The live music playing was really great! A pasta selection on the menu would have been nice but what we did order was so good! My husband and I will be back for date night!! Thank you

    Jessica provided excellent service throughout the meal. Unfortunately, both filets were over cooked and there is no recovering from such an error. Menu offered great value, if only the steaks had been properly cooked.

    After being seated, service did not start for ~25 minutes, the hostess saw us waiting, was apologetic, brought us drinks (did not charge us) and took appetizer orders, which were promptly served. The rest of the evening was amazing, food was delicious, one of the best filet mignon I had. Great ambiance and music. Service was great after the initial wait. Definitely would go back and recommend it highly. We went to their rooftop bar afterwards, great view!

    We were really excited about this place but our expectations were let down. Service was awkward and poor and felt rushed. Their special, surf and turf mofongo looked amazing but was so over cooked. We orderd medium and it came out well well done. Server asked how it was and I said it’s over cooked and she just stared at me. An item was forgotten that we had ordered. For traveling 45 minutes to check this place out we weren’t impressed.

This was our 3 time eating at Castile abc will make a reservation when on vacation!

    Love the variety of both appetizers & overall menu, always something for everyone in our party. Spacious place to dine & ambiance very pleasant, nice that you can have a conversation without shouting over loud music & also have ample privacy, tables spread out. Excellent service & food. Enjoy the grand piano in the hotel lobby & their welcoming my sister who is classically trained to play whenever in town, an added bonus for all. Very consistent & reliable place to go & also have nice rooftop bar for sunset. Worth the trip.

    Waiter was great. Really professional service. Had a specific reservation which was not initially honored or even mentioned by enthusiastic hostess. Negotiated with great waiter to get seated in the area originally reserved. Unfortunately the ambiance just didn’t deliver. Would not recommend for sunset/biew dining you could find elsewhere with a bit more of a professional courtesy.

    The calamari was good, and my friend enjoyed his pasta. The rest of our dishes were bad. I had high hopes after reading the reviews and maybe we just caught the staff on a off night. I had the snapper with mashed potatoes and it was dry, tasteless. I don’t know how you can mess up mashed potatoes. They took it off the bill so I was grateful. They had a good wine selection. Overall it was underwhelming for the prices.

    Quiet weeknight for dinner. Sat on the deck and were the only diners outside. Dave was a very attentive server and did a fantastic job! The manager rolled back the awnings so we could enjoy the evening, which there was a lightning storm in the distance providing a wonderful show for us (which was better than the hotel guests in the pool below). Interior of restaurant is beautiful, so we will try it - and the rooftop bar - next time. Only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is the wine list could be a bit better to go with the food options - maybe a Sancerre or more rose options for this nice Florida spot? Look forward to the next visit!

    Ok place for a drink and the inter coastal view. The bar and inside dining are too close to each other. Bar was crowded and loud preventing any conversation at the dining table! Food, Tapa of Burrata was delicious as well as the Clam Chowder soup. Our meals were not very good and too over spiced to enjoy. Service was ok but did not return to refill water glasses. Recommend this restaurant for a drink and the view (weather permitting). But leave before it becomes too noisy! Meal prices were much too high compared to the quality of our dinners.

    Very nice place and very friendly staff. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived but by the time we left it was getting busy. It’s located in a hotel which also has a rooftop lounge bar. All our dishes were prepared well and how we ordered. My teenage son loved the crab stuffed grouper over risotto. He would love to got back just for that. We would definitely come back if we’re back in this part of Florida again.

    This is a vibrant restaurant. It was relatively quiet at the time of our 6:15 reservation, but around 8:00 the place is bustling with activity. Our waiter, Jason, did a nice job pacing our meal, we were not rushed. The cauliflower appetizer was excellent. The main courses we ordered were the Snapper and crab stuffed grouper and both were prepared as expected. This is a vibrant place as the sun sets and the small band in the bar was a nice added touch.
