We like high end restaurants. Waitress was very nice but needs training. Finesse, Wine presentation, wine pouring/tasting. Several menu items unavailable. Medallions very poor quality.
Alex assistant waiter was great! Made up for a lot of it.

I'm in the area on vacation. I visited this restaurant based on other OpenTable reviews. The food was very good! The service was also very good! They easily accommodated my allergy, which you'd be surprised how many restaurants can't or don't. I had the special, chicken parm. It was a good size piece of chicken with a large portion of pasta on the side. My hubby had the seafood pasta. It was filled with shrimp, scallops, clams and mussels as well as some tomato, peas and mushrooms. It was a very large portion and tasted amazing. The mozzarella caprese app was fresh and also delicious. The balsamic glaze on top was sooooo yummy! I'd definitely return to this restaurant again in the future.

Excellent experience and meal! On a lark, I chose this restaurant, because it had a reservation available at the time we wanted to eat. Our normal place was booked solid. We were seated right away. Our server, James, broad smiled, welcomed us, explained the menu and specials, and provided us with exceptional service. The meals were well prepared, with great portions, and simply delicious.

I'm glad I found Cesare at the beach, and will most definitely return.

We always enjoy the patio, even though the traffic can be a bit noisy...no problem really. All other aspects of dining at Cesar's overshadows the traffic noise as they deliver a remarkable experience.

As always, the food ( Veal Parmigiana) was awesome...exquisitely prepared with old-world quality and flavor and served with perfectly al dente pasta. The salad was garden fresh and full of a mixture of greens, tomatoes, onions, etc. with a delicious and light italian dressing.
Our waiter - while clearly overwhelmed with three other very large parties gave us every attentively and courteously service. A five star experience! Well Done!

The food was terrific. We were greeted and our order was taken promptly but that’s when the service stopped. We never got checked back on. A server assistant boxed our food and it was still a while before our server came over. E we decided not to order dessert because we had waited so long

Waste of money. Overpriced generic Italian food in a strip mall. Service was poor. Food took over an hour to get. Fish was overcooked and they never brought out salads. They charge $4.50 for soda or lemonade. Total tourist trap. Never again.

Kitchen was severely backed-up; restaurant was too crowded. I know staffing is difficult and it's a holiday, so I would not recommend it on a busy night. However, I like the restaurant under normal conditions and return there nearly every time I visit Clearwater.
