There was only one server for the entire restaurant. Needless to say, he was slammed. Took 45 min to take our order and we finally got our dinner over 2 hours after our initial reservation time. We would have left, but all the restaurants at the Cheeca Lodge are in the same space, so we didn't k ow where to go. Management never came by to apologize and several tables were complaining.
Food was better than most places but very expensive. Also setting needs to be updated.
While staying at Cheeca Lodge we dined at Limoncello. Our server, Ben, was attentive and personable. My husband and I both ordered the shrimp scampi. It was delicious. The pasta was fresh and the shrimp were well-prepared.
I don't understand the reviews here at all. This place is horrible! We had pasta and pizza. The pasta was with out a doubt from a box and the pizza dough was for sure defrosted. The pizza sauce tasted like tomato concentrate. Ugh!
The food was very good with the exception of the calamari... I was very surprised when dining at this resort in the Florida keys to be served calamari rings, no squid, just what appeared to be frozen rings you buy at the store.... the snapper was excellent, very nice job with the pizza for the kids, thoroughly enjoyed the burrata. The Hummingbird was a very well crafted dessert.
Amazing food with an outstanding view. Couldn't ask for better service.
Not the best Italian restaurant I've ever tried but the atmosphere outside is wonderful.
Great location, great view, understaffed badly! However the pizza I had was very good
After sitting for an hour with bread only and watching our neighboring table arrive eat amd leave they informed us the kitchen was backed up and it would be 5 minutes till we were served. 10 minutes later still no food so we walked out and left money for drinks. NEVER AGAIN
The service was excellent,the seating outdoors was very comfortable and the food was cooked to perfection. It was a most enjoyable evening for both of us.
The food was good, the price was reasonable, nice experience overall.
We had a wonderful time there, the food was delicious, the dining was relaxing and of course the lighting was perfect. We like a restaurant that is light enough to see what we are eating. The view at evening also made for a pleasing eating experience.
Standouts are the tuna tartare, the mushroom risotto and the lasagna. Salads are quite large and varied. The menu offers classic Italian, meat and fish dishes and are reasonably priced. The restaurant provides intimate table seating but also can accommodate larger groups, with spacious booths and round tables! The service is impeccable, and it appears the management is making every effort to satisfy. What more can you ask for.
The veal cutlet was amazing and the Gnocchi hit the spot. Fresh mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes was to die for
The waiter service was good is about all I can say positive about this place. Waited 5 minutes for a hostess - no one at the station, with very few customers. Ordered a seafood medley that consisted of 3 shrimp, 5 mussels and some fish on 2 lbs of pasta. $30. Also had fish of the day which was overcooked snapper. $37. All in all very poor value.
The food presentation was great but it went down hill the mussels and spaghetti and meat balls sauce was like something you would feed the kids out of a can, totall void any fresh spice . The red snapper wasn't cleaned properly. The dark fat/bloodline was left on resulting in the fish tasting strong. We have a gift certificate and won't be in a hurry to use it.
Poor food and service . We were ignored by the staff. Our food was delivered to table and never did a server return to check on us
While we really enjoyed our meal, the dinner menu that was posted on Open Table had been discontinued months prior to our visit.
I went to dinner here with the 1 yr old I nanny. Service was great, the view is gorgeous and they were so kid friendly. Would definitely go back when we return to islamorada!
Nice place, great service, good food, beautiful atmosphere.
