Marker 92 Waterfront Bar & Bistro
We sat for 25 minutes before a server came to our table. She was less than attentive. We were told the restaurant had a quiet ambiance, yet extremely noisy people were seated immediately adjacent to us. When making the reservation we asked for a quiet, romantic dinner; It didn't turn out that way. We will not return.
This was our first time to Maker 92 and while in Orlando we went back several times because it was so good!! Service was great and food was amazing.
VACA! Our server Chris was great. My burger cooked MR was delicious. Flatbread Margueritta disappeared as fast as it took to serve. My wife’s Fish Taco’s were good, a little too much mayo dressing, needed something more acidic... Chris suggested a corn-citrous-cilantro addition (in lieu of missing pico de gallo). The drinks kept coming... & the evening was nicely fulfilled! Thank you!
I have seen Marker 92 ads pop up from time to time and as we wanted some waterfront dining with friends on Mommy Day, though we'd check it out. Sooooooo, what we had was a $131 dinner (incld $20 tip, no alcohol) meal with a view. The venue is really great - service was perfect, good was as close to mediocre as it can get. When you pay top dollar - filet was $45 - you expect near perfection. And that plate was not cold but approaching it, so much so, mentioned it to the server who offered to replace. Everyone else's food was OK but again, when you're looking at over $50/person without booze, it needs to be pretty superb.
The outdoor setting was excellent. We love the marina life and there was great breeze, perfect temp. It was not crowded at all - again tells you the food prep could have been better as no one was rushed to get it out. We saw a lot of people ordering fish tacos - looked great - so our conclusion was - def come back - hang at the cool marina bar - eat some fish tacos, enjoy the view and the great staff serving it all up.
one last comment- when we were leaving, we walked past the kitchen/warming counter area - now i know NOTHING about warming counter area light/heat but first thing that struck me was the lamps were too high above the food to have any real affect. realize there's a balance between warm and dried out but something def needs to be looked at around food serving temps.
back soon for those fish tacos and a cold one.
I was expecting the food to be top notch, but it fell flat in taste. For the price I expected better quality and flavor.
Beautiful evening and we sat outside. The restaurant was quiet and consequently the service was excellent and the timing of the cocktails, appetizers and entrees were "spot on." Our waitress Nicole was very attentive. However the menu was over priced. A crab cake for $16? and the tenderloin for $45, altho very good, didn't justify the price. It was a celebration of my daughter's birthday, who requested your restaurant however, it'll be a long time before we return.
Friends visiting from out of town
We were staying at the Haytt on vacation and ate at Marker 92. The food was very good as was the service.
My husband loved his perfectly cooked medium rare prime rib, I enjoyed the short ribs
The view is beautiful, the Westin property great, the breakfast expensive and disappointing.
To order breakfast and then have to pay $5.00 for the English muffin to go with the eggs, was ridiculous. Give me a break, $5.00 for fresh squeezed multiple juices, ok... For toast or English, no.
My husband and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We were staying overnight at the Westin hotel which is where Marker 92 is. There are two other restaurants attached to the hotel, but we thought Marker 92 would be the nicest out of the three. I'll start with a positive - I was able to book a reservation at very short notice. Our shrimp cocktail appetizer was pricey and the shrimp were not cooked well. My husband's entree was scallops, four scallops...he said they were tasty, but expected a few more for the price. I had plantain crusted grouper, I don't think it was real Grouper. It was very dry and rather small. The sauce and rice that came with it were pretty good - the vegetables not so much. Our waitress was very nice, but it seemed to take a long time in between courses. There was live music playing by the entrance for a while, but it was too loud to have a conversation at a normal voice level. And, for some reason, there was a large table of tween boys in the center of the room that didn't seem to have an adult with them. They were a little loud, and frequently going in and out of the doors leading from inside the restaurant to the outdoor area. My husband and I don't get out much, and we were hoping for a much nicer dinner experience than the one we had. I'll end on a positive note as well...the chocolate cheesecake was absolutely delicious! We will definitely stay at the Westin again, but I think we'll dine elsewhere.
We celebrated My birthday at Marker 92 and it was an excellent choice. It was our first visit but it won’t be our last. The food was excellent and the staff outstanding. Thanks for a memorable evening!
Nicole is the best server at Marker92!
Lots of outdoor seating overlooking the marina at the Westin Cape Coral. The inside of the restaurant was very nice and had an open kitchen. Both inside and outside views were scenic with the marina, palm trees and the sunset. Bathrooms were clean and what I would expect in an upscale restaurant. There is a medium sized outdoor bar overlooking the water with lots of surrounding seating and a fire pit. They had a live band playing near the bar on the evening we went. The band ended early and we wished they had stayed longer for some after-dinner dancing. Our server was attentive, we were not at all rushed, the food was delivered timely and overall the food was very good. There are a few shops along the marina and a long dock that circles around the marina which makes for a nice stroll before or after dinner. We enjoyed the experience and would recommend this restaurant, especially during the winter when it's comfortable to sit outside and enjoy the panoramic view.
Normally I don’t leave comments but the food here was not very good. First class hotel , prime waterfront views, amenities, but the quality of food leaves a lot to be desired. Hard to believe Westin doesn’t hold the standard across the board.
Appetizer was very bland and waitress was horrible! She seemed annoyed we were there, took forever for everything, did not smile one time and we really felt as though she assumed we either couldn't afford to be there, or weren't welcome. Maybe this is because we had a baby with us (who was perfect the eintire time) or because my husband has a bunch of tattoos? Either way, unless you appear look like a typical well off family, don't bother expecting much from this place. Outside seating are was great and all of the other food was delicious. Too bad our time was ruined by being made to feel they would prefer us to be down the road at Hooters or something. We come down to Cape Coral every year and are always looking for new places to eat. We will be sure to take this one off of our list, which is a shame because the setting is fantastic!
Family dinner - was nice. The shrimp fettucini alfredo was one of the best meals I've ever had. Service was a bit slow, but there were 7 of us. My husband's steak was overcooked - probably trying to time it all together was an issue. Overall, it was good. Would recommend sitting on patio - great views of marina.
We saw Marker 92 available through Open Table and since we hadn't been there, decided to try it. We drove from Ft. Myers to Cape Coral during commuting time, so the traffic was horrendous. But once we got there and saw the view, it was worth it. The hostess didn't think there was an outside table available, but luckily found the last one. Inside was quite empty, so we were so happy to be sitting outside with all the people and the gorgeous view. we both ordered the fresh catch salmon, and it was absolutely delicious including the rice and vegetable. A wonderful dining experience.
My family had a nice dining experience here. We had their fresh fish and jerk chicken which everyone really enjoyed. It was a busy night but we didn't have to wait too long to be served. We would definitely consider returning.
This was a big disappointment. It certainly was not my idea of fine dining. Would not recommend.
Great view of the water and marina. The musician was very good. Service was very attentive and the food was very delicious. We will be back again and bring our friends and family. It's a really nice outdoor dining venue.
Our food was okay, thought the meals were expensive for the food that we received. Also our waitress was nice but not very attentive, but to be fair the restaurant was very busy. I would go back and give them another try when it is not season.
The apple cobbler was watery with uncooked oats. My husband's grouper meal was very underwhelming, with just one small piece of fish, two carrots, and a small bit of broccolini. Jerk chicken was good, but overcooked plain white rice and a hard plantain chunk as a side left much to be desired. Definitely not worth the price. For over $100 for two, I'd go somewhere else.
Slow service not all on new server either
Dinner took 3 hours, food over priced for quantity nothing to write home about.
We had terrible service, took over an hour to receive our food and it was just barely warm. They did comp us for the food, but will never return here. Serving size was a joke for what they would of charged us for it. Worst experience we ever had in a fine restaurant.
We were told that we had to wait 45 minutes for a table despite our reservations. The hostess said they had too many orders to fill and they couldn’t keep up. She was very apologetic but clearly a poorly managed situation. The restaurant is at a resort, where we were staying. We won’t return.
Wife's grouper was undercooked. She loved the band, people watching, and sunset. My back was to all three and I could not hear due to band. However, my prime rib special was perfection on a plate. If we had sat inside I think the ratings would've been much higher.
We had terrible service at The Nauti Mermaid on March 2nd. We went there for cocktails before dinner. We essentially had no service. We had to get our own drinks. No one ever asked how we were doing. We we're there for an hour. There were 2 staff serving other tables. One of them seemed to be spending a lot of time with 1 table
The food was excellent altho the waiter Chris was a bit snarky and, although attentive at the beginning of the meal, was a "no show" at the end of our meal. However his attitude was more then made up by the chef coming to our table twice to advise us when we could expect our meal due to customization of a meal due to food allergies of one of our friends. The atmosphere, as always, was fun and exciting and the views wonderful.
The waitstaff was not as you would expect for this type of restaurant. Apparently understaffed and everyone was rushing around. While we were eating our first course, they delivered our main meal. Then we waited forever for items we requested; i.e. lemon, ice and additional sauce for the fish dish.
Absolutely the poorest service on the planet. The hostess asked if I wanted to sit inside or outside and I requested an inside table. Her response was “ thank god, that makes my job easier”. While we were waiting for our entrees, I asked the waitress to take a photo my table and she stated “that will need to wait”, I am busy. The manager served our second round of drinks and the security guard brought the bread and oil to the table . Bottom line, I would not recommend to anyone
The food and service was amazing in the view was spectacular. Definitely coming back again
We had the best server ever! Nicole was friendly, funny, pleasant and on top of things and readily available! She may have been the best server I have had in a very lonfg time! She made my boyfriend and I laugh and feel comfortable for his birthday :)
El servicio es bastante lento y poco atento
My Bride and I use your for special friends that visit from many areas and on many occasions for ourselves. Never again! The parties over.
Made reservations online, arrived early, had a drink at the waterside tiki hut. As our reservation time was approaching we all went to the check-in desk and there was a long line. Not to be impolite, I asked the young man if we have a reservation is this the right line. You could tell he was "IN the Weeds" or very inexperienced by his gruff response. We were concerned due to the long line we might loose our reservations due to late arrival.
After about 20 to 25 minutes I saw a mature lady seating customers and asked if there was a problem as the dinning room was empty. I told her we had reservations 30 minutes ago and she said I can seat you immediately.
Having a experience in food and beverage and many years in customer service our night was a complete disaster just trying to get to a table. Once we arrived at our table a VERY experienced server turned things around for our guest. Very pleasant and friendly, sorry I can't provide a name. I really feel sorry for her having to calm customer down after they have ran the "Gantlet". Must really effect her tips.
I don't understand how a wonderful get a way for me and my Wife could turn into a "Fast Food" operation.
Welcome Staff/ Customer Service------
Have a NICE DAY.
They did not honor the reservation. We arrived exactly on time. Waited nearly 10 minutes for someone to appear. They actually told us to our face that they gave walk-ins all the tables. Told us we would have to wait 20+ minutes until a table opened up. Maybe! The restaurant was not very busy at the time but they claimed they were understaffed for waiters. We left...totally unsatisfied and unserved. Actually, they should be ashamed to take reservations thru OpenTable. Very disappointed!
We loved sitting outside, live music, and beautiful boats to look at. Cocktails very good. Food just average.
We waited 20 minutes , then had to ask someone if they were going to wait on us ... the manager did come to our table to apologize and offered an appetizer or bottle of wine for our inconvenience. We opted for the bottle of wine which we thought was a generous gesture , however, it was added to our bill !!! $62.00 !!!
Somewhat disappointing considering the prices and that it’s located at a Westin hotel , our reservation was. For 7:00, we received our entrees by 8:30 pm
I came in expecting a lot. We had reservations for 8 pm and were seated at 8:45 pm after we were told we were waiting for an outside table they seated us inside. After 10 minutes sitting down they brought water and our waiter came. The hostess , the manager , the waiter were all not great at all. We spent 300$ for 4 people and for half that i could have gone to many other places and received better service. The food was not bad , but it wasnt great and the service just made it that much worse.
