Courtside Steakhouse - Sanibel Harbour Marriott
The WORST possible experience!!!!!!!
We got to the Courtside Steak House to celebrate my 63rd birthday and it was CLOSED!!! Yes it was closed!!!!!!!
We made the reservation at n 9/6 2019...we found from speaking with Jesse from Open Table, who was very helpful that The restaurant changed its schedule to be closed on Tuesdays on 9/7/2019. Even though they had a MONTH to notify us of this change we never were notified!!!! We even got a confirmation email three days ago!!!!!
Screw the Marriott Sanibel Harbour Reaorr!!!!
Screw the Courtside Steakhouse!!!!!
I recommend to all who see this to not go to any of the restaurants and bars at the Marriott Sanibel Harbour and ho to the Bimini which is right outside the Marriott property.
They treat you right there and have live music!!!
A great find, service and Food exceptional. This will be a regular stop for us on the Sanibel area Dinner scene.
Wait staff and bar staff were great! Completely enjoyed our dinner. Food was excellent and drinks were great. Looking forward to going back.
Way over priced and meat was not tender. Won’t be back
We ordered one steak medium and one medium rare but couldn't tell the difference in the temperature. The brussel sprouts were more than carmalized- they were burnt. The waiter while good, told us to contact the reservation stand if we needed the shuttle back to our hotel room. We were staying on property. I wouldn't return.
Nice place to eat ,been there twice in a week.
My husband and I ate at this steakhouse because we were staying at the Marriott. The ambiance was ok, we sat next to some windows but it over looked the tennis courts which wasn’t cute. The inside of the restaurant is nice. The waiter was ok. Now the part that sucks the most was the food. The food wasn’t good at all! To start I had a tuna poke which tasted super salty and my husband had a shrimp cocktail which he said the shrimp wasn’t clean properly and it tasted old. I had a filet mignon, he had a cowboy & we shared the truffle Mac & cheese, everything tasted so tasteless. We both asked for the steak to be cooked medium and they both were well done! The best thing we ate was the Creme brûlée and it wasn’t amazing! Paying $200+ on a dinner we didn’t enjoy hurts!
Nice place staff was attentive food was delicious .
We had been looking for a good Steakhouse experience. We now know the restaurant has been going through chef changes recently and according to staff has been struggling to keep up the quality standards. This was obvious as my steak (ordered medium-rare) was completely and entirely burned on top - not ‘charred’ as one might choose. We do hope that the staff will make it well through the transition.
This restaurant is truly great-great staff, drinks, food, service-overall a wonderful experience. We will be back!
Excellent everything. I’m surprised you’re not busier!
We live on Sanibel and dine here a couple of times a year even though there are a few of the well known named steakhouses within a half hour from here. Compared to them this restaurant is quiet and upscale with excellent steak and fish dishes and better service and ambiance. It's a shame it's located at a hotel because there is very little outside advertising and "locals" don't dine here because they simply don't know about it. Absolutely will not be dissapointed.
The food, staff and ambience was esquiset. It was my 20th Aniversary and they made it special. We would defiantly return again.
A great place to celebrate Mother’s Day ! Our meals were delicious.
2 of 3 meals were good but the special ribeye was terrible.
the place was about 50 degrees and the average age was about 70 not a great mix. our candle was fake which could be a safety thing but seemed cheap for what i was paying. the fixture on our table was specked in a light coating of rust once again that fine ... just not for the price. she had a lamb for 40$ i had a steak for 40$ we have got a side and an alcoholic beverage bill was 129.00 for 65$ per person before tip it could have had a lot more wow factor
An excellent place to dine. Atmosphere is great and the food is outstanding. Make it a point to go there every year when visiting Florida. Won't matter what your order to eat you will be very happy. Our waiter David was excellent too.
Greeted by hostess and offered a corner table.
Celebrating a 70th bday and waiter offered a free cocktail to the bday boy.
Food was awesome from apps to salads to entrees. Portions more than adequate.
This place is such a gem!
Very disappointing! It took 2 1/2 hours to get our entree which turned out to be tasteless. The server was not too concerned about it. The restrooms were filthy, I will not go back to this restaurant. Fair food, overpriced and slow service.,
It was Easter, food was very good, steak a bit over cooked, service excellent!
Hidden gem that is out of the way, great food and service, treat yourself to an amazing meal.
Great steaks great service great deserts. Great place you can’t go wrong.
Very nice dining experience. Waiter and hostess were very personable and attentive
We have eaten there several times, food was overcooked this time and service was OK. For the price it needs to be a lot better. My filet was supposed to be medium and it was medium well. Too hungry to wait for another to be cooked. The veggies were very soggy, not crisp.
Server was slow & seemed short with answers on entrees. Generally wasn’t what we have come to expect from your facility.
I was hoping for a better view, not tennis courts. The food was excellent!
Always a favorite when we travel to Sanibel Harbour. Very attentive service and great food.
Great service and excellent food. We will always recommend Courtside and we will be back.
Everything we tried was outstanding! Filet, scallops, asparagus, truffle Mac& cheese.
It's very loud, and chilly, so bring a sweater.
Cocktails outrageously expensive.
It was an outstanding dinner at Courtside Steakhouse. My husband had lamb and I had scallops, both were prepared just right. We drove over from Sanibel and will certainly do it again.
Great food, had a large corporate group come in and make the noise level off the chart...
Excellent service and delicious food. I loved the creamed corn.
Perfect meal cooked as requested with large sides suitable for sharing
Great food, service and ambiance. We shared augratin potatoes and brocolini. Filet mignon and Chilean Sea Bass were excellent! Side dishes are huge and shareable; you will not be disappointed. My daughter and I are very reasonable and tolerant, but I was not happywith Open Table as well as Courtside's management because the only reservation on Valentine's Day was 9:15 PM. When we arrived there were only 5 occupied tables out of what I would guess was 50 tables. They need to coordinate their schedules a little better.
It’s one of my favorite restaurants. The food is amazing and although it is pricey it’s no more than any other steak house. They have s great wine list with all levels of prices. The service is also spot on...definitely worth the price!
Excellent Steak Diane ... beet salad divine and burrata and tomato salad wonderful. This restaurant is a nice walk from the Sanibel Tower to the restaurant .. A short walk on a Boardwalk through the REAL Florida.
The rack of lamb was cooked to perfection and the flavor combination was irresistable and fantastic! The filet mignon was delicious as well. Service was outstanding. Absolutely recommend to go again.
Amazing food, wine and service! Will definitely dine there again.
Always right on! Food was perfectly done: filet and lamb. Sides are plentiful for two and service is impeccable!
We booked a weekend getaway at the Resort and opted for the Courtside steakhouse for our 5 year anniversary dinner. From start to finish our expectations were exceeded! He ordered the lamb and I chose the steak oscar. Both were delicious. You will not be disappointed with this restaurant!
