    Would not have made reservations here if I had realized it was a hotel restaurant. But… we decided to stick it out as menu sounded good. We asked for outdoor seating. We were not taken to the “front” quiet porch but to a secluded area around the corner and off the busier street overlooking landscape littered with trash. When I asked to be moved to one of several empty tables on the main porch I was told no. I agree with other previous comments that the bar menu iPad is really strange and hard to navigate. The food was just average. Almost everything was overly sauced and sort of greasy. The server brought us our check before we were even done with our entrees. Still most tables were empty. There are clearly better options in this town for dining out.

    We sat outside on their patio and the ambiance was very nice. Food was good for a casual restaurant. Red wine selection was not impressive, mostly low-end options. The iPad menu was really hard to use as it had categories but the filters didn’t work properly. The hotel renaissance cocktail was very good.

    Gave 4 stars for food bc the desserts were dry. We ordered 2 - the chocolate skillet cake and the bread pudding. Brussels sprouts were amazing Prime rib sandwich was delicious Mexican street corn not worth it. Glad we went. Too many restaurants in St Augustine to try so won’t be back.

We hope that you will give us another opportunity in the future!

    We waited for an hour for water after our dinner drinks ran out and asked 2xs. We also got one wrong meal but they comped us that meal. I will say $45 for a monte christo (same price as a prime rib) was crazy.

    We paid a $30 deposit to reserve a table for Castillo’s Craft Bar & Kitchen. It was included in the $45 per person Easter brunch. On top of that, a 20% service fee was added. And then, as we never saw a drink menu, we thought at least non-alcoholic beverages were included… nope (my mistake). $12.50 for two coffees and a small orange juice. Also, because we assumed the service charge was a part of gratuity, we didn’t leave a tip for the server. After reading up on it, we know now that a percentage is taken for the restaurant, and then the rest is divided amongst the staff. So we paid $29.50 for a service charge and then needed to also leave gratuity that would go to our server? Is this practice becoming commonplace now? If so, I will be checking to make sure this isn’t being practiced at any restaurant I go to. If I’m going to be automatically charged 20% for service on a bill, I’d expect stellar service and food… which it was certainly not. The restaurant was not full nor was our server rushing around. $186 for 3 people. Lesson learned. I understand $45 per person for a meal is a moderate price, but when you get food that isn’t “where culinary artistry meets unwavering passion” as this restaurant claims, it’s just not worth it. Frankly, a majority of the food we had was not presentation or taste worthy. Furthermore, there should also be a disclaimer that states beverages are not included in a dining experience that has a set fee per person. To end on a positive note, it was nice to have complimentary valet parking for dining, and the restaurant was warm and inviting. The staff we interacted with were pleasant and friendly.

    The service was excellent and the food was good. My martini was delicious but not as chilled as I normally get. The dessert did not meet my expectations. I would suggest offering a chocolate lava cake topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Overall it was a pleasant experience and the service was excellent.
