The food here was of a good quality and presentation. The views of the beach were excellent. Staff were friendly but professional which I liked. Drinks were very good with a wide variety available. They were happy to make changes to cocktails to allow for my dislike of pineapple, thank you.
All in all we had 4 evenings at this restaurant and enjoyed them all. I would have given 4.5 if possible.

Hi Oalexanderg1981- Glad to hear our new look exceeded your expectations! We are pleased that your dining experience was nice and we appreciate you taking the time to share your review! Sincerely, Neil Hopgood – General Manager
I don’t write a lot of reviews so when I do, it’s because my experience was exceptional. Costa Island Cuisine was one of those pleasant surprises in a rather unexpected location — a small hotel on the beach. But don’t let that scare you away — it is worth the visit!
First of all, the ambiance and decor is contemporary, but very tasteful. Of course the large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beach and Gulf of Mexico only enhance the dining experience. I mean, is there anything better than a martini at sunset! The service was very good and attentive without being overdone.
But the real star of the show is the food. I had what I consider one of the most flavorful and perfect preparations of grouper I have ever had (and I am a bit of a fish snob). My wife had the salmon which was also wonderfully prepared. I was so impressed, I had to compliment the chef personally after dinner. A young, gracious and creative chef!

A top-notch dining experience! First off the setting is excellent with great views of the beach / water! All of the food was excellent, topped by brusells sprouts and lobster mac for starters, and the grouper for entrees! Overall service was nice and the price was right in line, if not cheaper than what you'd expect for quality received.

El restaurante es espectacular, una barra muy elegante y una vista al mar excelente.
Las entradas todas buenísimas, los Mongoliam Shrimp, los crispy Brussels sprouts y los crab cakes. La vieras muy buenas, mi hija pidió el salmón y le encantó.
El Martini clásico que pedí de entrada, estaba perfectamente preparado. Los precios me parecieron un poco caro.
Fue una excelente elección para celebrar el cumpleaños de mi esposa y el día de las madres al mismo tiempo.

Cenamos en familia por el cumpleaños de mi esposa.
La comida excelente, el servicio no fue muy bueno, la mesera se olvidó de traer la torta con la velita y nos asesoró mal sobre los tamaños de los platos.
El precio un poco elevado pero razonable.

We enjoyed our visit immensely. Excellent food, creative menu, good service. We dined outside on patio. Given the cool ambience inside the restaurant the Patio could do with some color, a little more ambience, table covering.

Hello Sharka- We are pleased that you enjoyed our menu selection and view of the Gulf. We appreciate your suggestion and will discuss it with our culinary team. Thank you for taking the time to share your review! Best Regards, Neil Hopgood – General Manager
We had a 6:00reservation and was seated by the window. What a beautiful view!! Our waitress was very nice but maybe not seasoned?? Had Sangria with a different twist. White with coconut rum & fresh fruit! Wine choices were reasonable. Brussel sprout & cheddar soup appetizer was very tasty. The crab cakes were not warm enough. I had the seared scallops which were absolutely delicious. They were 4 large & very sweet. The Black grouper was also very tasty. Our waitress did not bring us bread until I asked. They were cooking the rolls & they came out when we were done our meal. I would recommend Coste (pronounced Coast)for the classy atmosphere & food!

Nice decor and ambiance. Server was very nice. Food was good - but definitely overpriced. Did not love some of the seating as it overlooked the hotel pool and an adjacent property with hanging towels on the balcony - just not pleasant to look at while eating.

We come to Fort Myers every year for vacation and it was a nice change of pace. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. The Alaskan King Crab kegs are served cold which we were unaware of when we placed our order. Just a heads up as they are usually from my experience served warm with drawn butter. Other than that we had the grouper and short rib which was delicious.

Went for dinner last Friday. We ordered the peel and eat shrimps. They were perfectly cooked. Would have been nice to have some cocktail sauce.
Then we got the scallops. Nicely prepared and presented.
Food was delicious. Service was a bit slow.
But overall it was a nice experience!
Made a reservation several weeks in advance, but were told to sit at the bar when we arrived until our table was ready (almost 30 minutes). The “view” of the sunset was of a pillar and almost no direct view of the beach or the sunset that we mostly missed due to our late table seating (we picked our time based on the when the exact sunset time would be... oh well). Service was mediocre as we waiting another 20 minutes to even place our order. Food tastes good, but I did get sick from the crab cakes that night. Would not recommend or ever go again.

Beautiful decor, awesome service, and delicious food. We started with the Brussels sprouts (amazing and crispy), and our entrees were the snapper and scallops. Both entrees were awesome. Cocktails were spot on as well. Will definitely go back to check out the seafood tower.
Vacation and birthday

The portion size was very small for the cost and it was not the greatest. They made a mistake on her order and it took forever for them to bring out the new order and then a large party came in they forgot about us it was a bad experience.
The restaurant is beautiful and that is only eclipsed by the excellence of the staff. The experience can be influenced by whether you sit near or away from the lounge.
Dear Guest- Thank you for visiting us! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience. We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review and we hope to see you again soon! Best Regards, Neil Hopgood – General Manager
Great meal and a welcome new addition to the beach!
We have been coming to FMB for 23 years and always enjoy staying on the island as much as possible. We were thrilled to hear of this new restaurant and were very pleased with our experience. Great food, ambiance, and service. It is on par, and maybe beyond, Bayfront Bistro, Fresh Catch, and South Beach (all our regular go to’s). Thank you Coste for being on FMB!
Have already suggested this to friends.
Great variety on food item
try brussel sprouts and crab cake appetizers
If you have drinks downstairs at Cabanas you can get a free appetizer upstairs
had pork chop, snapper, lobster primevera and short ribs
didnot have dessert
dessert menu limited
Only draw back would be wine list id very heavy on California

New restaurant / renovation, soft opening late Fall of 2018. Environment is really cool and modern with incredible views of the gulf/sunset. There is not a more high-end / foodie destination in the area. Incredibly well prepared scallops... pork chop was very juicy and tender... even the kids meals were well prepared.
If your looking for a solid meal and service with the best views available, this is the place. This chef is definitely an up and coming chef that takes his craft very seriously... he is also very friendly and comfortable to talk to table side.
Some of the points of attention are easy fixes... musician playing from the bar area was too loud in dining area, boutique NAPA bottle of red wine ordered was on the warm side and needed to chilled, and some other minor tweaks to timing and service, none of which impacted our overall experience.
This place is clearly trying very hard to be the best in the area and the effort shows... great job!

Our table was overlooking the wide beach and palm trees so that was very lovely.
Beautiful view of sunset. Quiet enough we could talk. Multiple wait staff were helping each other trying to provide good service but still a little slow getting bar drinks. Food was fabulous. Loved beer cheese soup. Crab cakes were very good. Would have preferred a crisp crust on the cake. They were served Luke warm. Better hot. Presentation was beautiful.
