Way too crowded during Covid, not enforcing mask wearing at a Marriott resort and service was terribly slow for a place that was not overcrowded.

Service was terrible as they only had three servers and no hostess. Our waiter was continuously searing others and ignore us. Not his fault but managements. Ordered filter med rare and got a filet almost med well. My wife’s was cooked as ordered. 20 min later my second steak arrives (my wife is finished) and my steak is raw in the middle. Are what I could and had to almost grab server to get check. He asked if everyOK and we said no and told him why. He said he would call the manager and see what he could do. He returned later with our bill at full price! No comp, no desert or drink. For a rated 4+star steak house we both were surprised. I’ve had better food and service at a chain. Will not see us again.

The ambiance and service were great, the food was awful and extremely expensive for the portions and quality - wish we chose a different place to spend $200 for 2 people.

Wife ordered a filet mignon cooked med well.
It came out med rear the waiter apologized and brought out another one which was cooked medium.
For the price of the steaks the chef should know how to cook a filet.
Service was excellent and so was the rest of the food.

The restaurant was out of two preferred entree selections. My husband's strip steak, ordered medium rare, had to be returned as it arrived at medium well. My chicken selection was miniature and rather dry. My accompanying "mushroom risotto" was literally just rice with mushrooms. Little culinary talent displayed. A very costly dining mistake.

The restaurant itself was ok and service ok but the food was terrible starting with the what seemed like 2 day old frozen rolls that were cold, any nice restaurant will start with some type of nice warm bread or rolls, the bone in ribeye ordered medium rare had no red at all and was tough, the mac and cheese seemed like it was from a box of kraft mac and cheese, do mind paying for a nice restaurant with quality food but this was worst I can remember and would advise any of my friends to avoid

We are locals and tried the restaurant for the first time. Iceberg and Beet salads were good. Recommend splitting. Large in size. I ordered a MR filet and got a MW and he ordered M and got MR. The steaks were okay. Nothing to write home about. Our server, Calbert was very nice. The cheesecake seemed very old. The Courtside is close to home but for the quality and price we will drive to Naples for a good steakhouse.

We love to go there when we are in town. They have the best She Crab Bisque. They knew it was our anniversary, although I didn’t tell them, and treated us to champagne! They may keep records from previous visits, but it was a nice surprise.

Will be back!

Vacation stay at Marriott’s Sanibel Harbor and a short walk over to Courtside. Food was excellent. Service was superb, and was great to be able to support food service workers during this time. Appropriate social distancing and extra cleaning in place.

We were there on New Years Eve. Whatever could go wrong, did! The only good thing about the evening was the company we were with! It appeared they were totally understaffed. Waitstaff, kitchen, limited bar! Did not live up to the standard of previous dinning experience!

We had our Christmas dinner here and enjoyed the quietness of the restaurant. There were some tasteful Christmas decorations, but sadly, no Christmas music. We had wonderful service and a lovely spot to sit overlooking the tennis courts. The menu had many attractive offerings and we tried both the filet mignon and the rack of lamb. The lamb was served nicely, but the steak was a tiny piece of meat on a huge plate with nothing else on it- a little disappointing presentation. Both of our meats were fairly tender, but they didn't have much flavor, except for the sauces. There were no seasonings used in the cooking, and that left the meats a bit tasteless. We were surprised that there was no mint jelly available for the lamb- such a standard feature. In general, we enjoyed our experience and will probably return, but we would want to try other offerings.

So horrible we walked out even before we ordered. There were literally 4 tables in the place and waited 15 minutes for our server and got up and left. Do NOT bother evening considering this place.

Food presentation was unimpressive. A single 5 oz filet laying along on a large plate. Nothing like the pictures they advertise. The place was basically empty and they had run out of all desserts. Very disappointing for how expensive it was. Stay away if possible.
