Loved the nice romantic ambiance and the service was excellent - thank you Jessica. The food was really good. Hubby had fish and chips and my daughter and I had the short rib cavatappi which was a wonderful comfort food because it was cold outside…..for Florida….in the 50,s. Had the rum cake for dessert. It was just ok. I think dessert choices could be upgraded for such a nice restaurant. The only complaint would be the live music that started right before we were ready to leave. Not that the band or music was bad, but just too loud for such a small space. Rooftop was closed because of the weather but they still let us go check it out. It was really nice so we will be back to eat again and to hang out up there.

Outside Terrace level has great view of the canal. Only about 10 tables though. Was there in the evening, you could hear a generator or motor from the residential dock in the background, moderate, not too noisy.

We enjoyed the service we were given at this restaurant. Our server in the restaurant was friendly and attentive, while we indulged in the Tomahawk meal! Best tasting beef ever! Our server completed our meal with tasty desserts. The bartenders at the bar in the restaurant were also top notch! We had a lot of good laughs during our stay. We had an over perfect experience with all who made that happen for us.

Granted, it was New Years Day, crowded, and they were overwhelmed in the kitchen. Food preparation and quality was unacceptable. The shrimp was undercooked, tasted bad and made our stomach’s queasy after eating one. Had to be sent back. Grouper was not cooked properly throughout and barely edible. We eventually quit trying and got the check. We’ve had better experiences there in the past, so might have been just a bad night for them. But probably won’t be going back anytime soon.

Menu limited a over salted, my steak tartare came our in the shape of a hamburger with a white indescribable powder on the the bottom nothing Asian about it, no quality egg!!! I had salmon it was seared to protection but so salty not edible. It can with red potatoes, spinach and an oil slick! What happened here???

We hadn’t been here in a number of years. However, we were pleasantly surprised how the culinary quality had improved. Our server Jessica was off the chart fantastic, and very attentive. Especially on New Year’s Eve with a full house. The Executive Chef, Jay came by our table, and we complimented him on our meals. There was a great band as well, which heightened the overall ambiance. A must try restaurant if you are a local, or visitor to St Pete Beach!

We ate dinner at Castile on NY Eve. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was very good. All of us ordered the same twin lobster dinner. Unfortunately, one of my lobsters was undercooked and the other over cooked, so was quite disappointing. I did not complain, but was surprised the waiter did not comment when he took a mostly full dinner back. Might try again some time.

Very frustrating experience due to staff.

There were more empty tables on the patio than occupied tables, yet, they refused to put our two tables near each other. We had made reservations weeks and weeks in advance simply wanted to tables ( one table for 3 and one for 4) that were adjacent we finished our meal and they were at least eight empty Tables....yet they sat us at tables on opposite sides of patio

The staff were completely unwilling to be accommodating..despite repeated requests

Our server, although friendly, seemed either "out of it" or very inexperienced as he dropped things multiple times and as he opened the bottle of champagne at least a glass quantity sprayed out of the bottle onto the ground..of Veuve!

Food was good.

Unlikely to return due to attitude of staff. Ruined our experience.

While the views were outstanding and lovely, the service was not very good. It took almost 45 minutes to receive our food. When it finally did arrive, the steak was cold, the chicken was very tough, and the waffles were like rocks. I had to ask our server where the food was and when he brought it out, it appeared to us it had been under a warming lamp for a long time causing the chicken to be over cooked and the waffles to turn hard. Plus the steak was lukewarm at best. We were disappointed.

We ordered medium well and it came literally all black crosted burned. We were not in a hurry so we wanted for a new one and it was good ok. Overall we recommend it. Jason made the difference.

Even though we have given this place numerous chances, the last visit was an epic fail of monumental proportions!
The underlying problem is poor management. Of the kitchen, of the wait & the bartending staff.
Every employee studiously & successfully avoids eye contact as they scurry aimlessly by and customers wait.
For menus.
For drinks.
For everyone's meals to arrive.
For the check, for returning the check.
We had ordered the prime rib which was a featured Christmas Eve dinner.
When it arrived, it looked nothing like any prime rib we'd ever seen. Full of gristle and sinew, it looked like trim from the slaughterhouse floor. And, everyone acted like that was normal...
Here was a meal that should have been comp'ed completely.
Although if it had been, this review would have been written anyway.
Deficiencies have been brought to the attention of management on previous visits.

Been here many time sand food is always consistently good. Was disappointed in the stone crab appetizer as it was expensive (as expected for stone crab) but the accompanying sauce which was supposed to be a brandy Dijon was tasteless. Entrees and drinks were excellent as was the service. Maybe they just gave us the wrong sauce?

Nice but the bacon wrapped scallops were over cooked and that includes the bacon. The scallops also has a very fishy taste. The cauliflower dish was good, and the fries were okay. For as much as the dishes cost, the overall quality should have been much better than average to below average. Our waiter was lovely though as were the the folks at the host table.
