    We definitely enjoyed everything about last nights first experience at Alta Marea. From the first second walking in to see the clean modern look of the restaurant, to the excellent professional service and attention to detail, this was a treat. The wine list is something special as are the cocktails. The food was fantastic. Unique dishes, served perfectly left nothing to be desired. We will be back to this gem regularly.

    In a word, fabulous. If you really like food and appreciate the subtleties of flavors, spices, and great wine this is your place. Our server, Jay, and the manager, Brian helped us select an outstanding Brunello that paired exceptionally well with our meal. We had several courses, all perfectly prepared, including a misto seafood appetizer to an unbelievable burratta salad to a fine rigatoni and filet tip Ragu. We couldn’t have been more pleased. Don’t miss this gem in St Augustine.

    Given we've eaten there 4 times in a row, we clearly love this restaurant ambiance, the attentive staff and the cuisine! The only reason I gave this review was this one time we ordered the lamb and it wasn't a 5 in our opinion. Very well prepared, but not much there.

    The food was ver good when it arrived. Twice they tried to deliver meals that weren’t ours. We dined late when the restaurant wasn’t that full but it took over 30 minutes to serve our food.

    Over priced. Server was non existent- and they were not understaffed. Enjoyed the bartender, Brace. Meat has funny taste and small portions of sides. We found they catered to the locals who were regulars - not visitors which was unusual from all the other places we visited.

    Absolutely fabulous experience in every way! From Stacey our bartender and manager and her partner Brian ( I think lol) to Ryan our waiter, we were treated special in every way. We had first eaten here a week ago with my son visiting from Boston and he is still talking about the amazing experience! The filet mignon was one of the best I’ve had and our out of town visitors meals were fabulous as well. We celebrated our relatives birthday in what she described a beautiful setting with fabulous service, food and libation. Can’t wait to return!!

    It was extremely disappointing experience. It took more than an hour for our mains to arrive and 2 out of 4 dishes were cold, the server was clearly dismissive and at the end they just automatically charged 20% “service fee”.

    Food was overly salty and undercooked. When it was brought to waiters attention all he said was he would let the chef know. After paying 50 plus dollars a plate I expected better resolution to our disappointment. This left the experience flat.

    We came with family to celebrate our 4th anniversary. We split the meal between four people so we could try more options. The food was delicious. They have a great wine list. We had the octopus salad and antipasto plate to start. The octopus was cooked perfectly. We had scallops, seafood risotto, and whole grilled branzino, which were all fabulous. The pistachio cake is a must have. The down point to the meal was the service. It started out great. We had two servers, so when they dropped off food and didn’t tell us about it or ask how it was we were quite surprised. We asked for the food to be coursed out and only one dish come at a time and instead the first two courses came together and then all three entrees came at the same time: we were rushed to eat and it got cold by the time we got to the fish. Quite disappointing.

    Was extremely disappointed with this place. They were reservation only, yet when we got there at 7:30, they were out of all their specials except one. Seems like poor planning when you should have a pretty good Idea of the volume of customers you should be seeing. They were also out of many of their desserts. My daughter and I ordered the remaining pasta special, which we were told was filet mignon slow roasted in a tomato sauce. Sounded delicious - however we were very disappointed as the “filet mignon” was like shoe leather. Slow roasted means it should be fork tender, not to mention a filet mignon. The meat was steak tips at best. My daughter and I ate some of the pasta - and honestly did not care for the dish at all. When our waitress came by to ask if we wanted to take it home, we communicated are dislike for the dish. The three remaining members of our party were somewhat satisfied with their dishes, however one member ordered a martini that was not a full pour. We did order a dessert and a coffee, and were disappointed to see that nothing was comped off of the bill. Given the fact that the pasta dishes were $38 a piece, I would not be writing this review if they had simply taken the dessert (one piece of cake) and the coffee off the bill.

    From the moment we arrived and checked in with the hostess, the staff was welcoming, friendly and very attentive. The restaurant is beautifully done, the color choices are fresh, clean and relaxing. Our server was exceptional, our courses were paced perfectly and she checked in with us throughout our dining experience. The food was original and everything was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. We will surely return again.

    The food was adequate but not for the price. The bread service was good, and the pistachio dessert was excellent. The service was subpar for the environment but not bad. It may have been an off night, however I doubt we will try it again.

    This was a return visit to St Augustine and a return visit to this lovely restaurant. The food, atmosphere and service all lived up to our high expectations. My husband had the octopus and I had lobster cannelloni, and both were excellent. The grilled Cesar salad is a great starter. We’ll be back.

    Visited Alta Marea a few days before Christmas and the interior was decorated beautifully for the season. The service was excellent and each staff member greeted us upon entry and when leaving. The drink menu is lacking but the food makes up for it. Definitely would return when in the area!

    Started out with the octopus salad. It was delicious! My daughter had the seafood risotto. Was not good. The seafood was good but the “risotto “ was basically just rice, and wasn’t cooked all the way. I had the tagliatelle pasta with clams. Fresh made pasta was good and the dish worked. I would try it again.
