    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 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.

    I ordered the $80 ribeye steak medium rare. But it was cooked medium at best, very little pink. I did not send it back, the flavor was still good but it was overcooked for my liking.

    We asked to be seated outside because the inside was overly air-conditioned and far too loud in which to have a conversation (a loud Friday evening wedding in the adjoining hotel didn’t help). The outside dining area was fine; it’s on a busy street, people are coming in and out of the hotel (it turns out this is a hotel restaurant), and there are propane heaters if needed. Food was hit or miss, mostly miss. Two appetizers - coconut shrimp and crispy brussel sprouts - were good, although the sprouts were very greasy. Entrees, not so much. Our friend said his duck confit pot pie was good, not great. My fish fry batter coating was soggy, as were the fries. My husband’s pasta bolognese was pretty tasteless. Desserts (butterscotch bread pudding and key lime cheesecake were good. Service was friendly but our server disappeared for long periods of time. My biggest complaint was the pacing in the kitchen - our waiter tried to clear our appetizers when we were obviously still eating them, then brought our entrees anyway a minute later. Of our three dinners in St. Augustine, this was our most expensive and the worst food. I would not recommend - you can do better elsewhere.

    Very nice restaurant with minimal fuss. The drinks were quite interesting and lovely still seasonal on the fall side of things. The appetizer of coconut shrimp was a bit overcooked and hard. Served with tartar sauce and cocktail sauce, not sure why when it should’ve been with a Thai sauce or orange marmalade. The main course were excellent and very well thought out. The Maui was done to perfection as was the New York Strip Steak. Overall decent enough restaurant, probably go back to drinks at the bar when the new menu comes out.

    We were looking forward to this experience having heard great things. Alas, they don't know how to cook meat to well done. I personally enjoyed my fish, and the coconut sauce they provided was really good. But my companion, who can only eat well done meat, was not pleased. Twice the swung and missed with the rather expensive filet. They fouled off the next attempt at showing inability to cook a hamburger to well done. Strike 3 finally came when they informed us that they could not supply her with a simple slice of bread. Just a very disappointing visit.

    Waiter was great, food was great. The table next to us was loud. The man had his phone volume up and on speaker watching videos. The staff heard the same thing we did but never ask him to lower it. He was very old but it went on for over 10 mins right in our ears. We could not wait to pay and leave.

    We always enjoy going to Castillo for brunch but it seemed like the menu was limited as opposed to our other visits. The food was still excellent and delicious. The only downside/disappointment: whomever is in charge needs to explain to the staff that when we request regular sugar, we mean more than 5 little packets. We were 6 adults, drinking coffee, and some like it sweeter than others. None of us use sugar substitutes and that was all that was in the little dish. When we were brought 5 packets, we immediately asked our server for me. He brought 5 more?? We then had to ask another server, who brought us 6 more.

    Superb! Cocktails, appetizers and dinner were all great. Bar could use some 4 tops as they only have doubles and one 6 top table. The bar front seats were taken and our party of 4 had to split up. Many 2 tops tables open. Other than that… excellent service and attentive staff. Had reservations at 6:45 but valet for the restaurant was full, only hotel clients could valet. We parked a block a way in the parking garage. Not a big problem, but unexpected. Great location for walking and sight seeing. Indoor and outdoor seating.

    Everything here was delicious! I am a local born and raised and so glad we found this new place. My boyfriend ordered the duck pot pie and it was filled with so much duck and the sauce was divine. I ordered the almond coconut crusted mahi and it was cooked perfectly. The sauce was delicious too. We ordered the datil pepper bread pudding and both agreed it needed more datil but still wonderful. Even with all the food being as delicious as it was the best part of our experience was our server. I believe her name was Kristen or Krista but she was outstanding and had a contagious smile. I highly recommend

    This location is attached to The Renaissance Hotel. I booked dinner because of the convenience to our stay. The bar has ample seating and the drinks looked great and wine pours were generous. We were served our appetizers (coconut shrimp) within 5 min of ordering it. It was delicious. Our dinner came right away and we enjoyed my salmon and my husband’s fish and chips. My dissatisfaction was with the rush. The servers drop the dessert menu at the tables while you are eating dinner. This is how you say “hurry up” with saying it. We were in at 6pm and out by 7pm. There were empty tables all around. Not sure what the hurry was.

    Very loud, very expensive and very underwhelming . Also, way too bright for a nice couples dinner. I don't know what restaurant the other reviewers ate at but not this place! Food was definitely over-priced for barely Ok quality. One of the menu items featured a $60 pork chop----Yes you read that correctly ---$60 for a pork chop! Service was barely OK--did not even check back to see if the meal was OK. Save your $$$ and go to Outback Steakhouse where I had a great meal(steak perfectly cooked and a delicious salad for only $20. Plus the ambiance was just as good and the service better!

    Food quality mixed. Scallops and Salmon were very good. Pasta Bolognese was blah. Little flavor. And I had to laugh at the rating for noise as “energetic”. It was loud. Very loud. They initially sat us next to the open kitchen, and the noise was horrible. Lots of pots and pans clatter. They moved us and it was much better until a party of 10 arrived. We were far enough away that it shouldn’t have been an issue, but it was. If we go again, we’ll try to sit outside.

    Thanks for the feedback, Dolysk. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the scallops and salmon, but we're sorry to hear that our pasta Bolognese didn't meet your expectations.

We hope you'll give us another chance to provide a more enjoyable dining experience. Thanks again for your insight.
