Horizons is one of our all time favorites on Amelia Island. The chef and owner, Courtney Thompson, is a genius with fresh fish. Everything we’ve ever eaten there has been wonderful, but the fish is outstanding. Don’t leave without having a piece of her coconut cream cake - outstanding!

Our favorite place to eat on the island. One of our guests said best meal she’s ever had and could eat there every night. Don’t forgo the soufflé for dessert. Incredible!

We are foodies and felt the food was great, better than the food that we had at the Omni Plantation restaurants, and 1/2 of the price. Went for dinner and Hubby had the meatloaf which he loved, I had the flounder with corn relish- it was the best meal I have had while down here this week. Try the coconut cake, it’s fantastic!

Not well prepared for large Valentine crowd. Ran out of food, didn’t have any house Cabernet. Wait staff was very young and not as attentive as they should be. Food was awesome though! I think it was just an off night for them and I’d still go back.

Made reservations though "Open Table". Called restaurant to confirm, and they replied that no reservation had shown up. Reserved over phone. Seated promptly after arrival @ 1815. Chose from "Restaurant Week" menu. Both of us had same entree and thought the green beans could have been cooked about a minute longer. Pretty crunchy, even for "Al Dente". Consistently good food over the years we have been coming. Understand changes are coming to Horizons. Will try again after they're made.

We chose Horizons because they served Beef Wellington on their special restaurant week menu. The entrees were brought to our table with a 3/8-1/2 inch fillet of beef wrapped in mostly RAW pastry dough. We ordered the beef cooked medium, brown with a red center. It arrived medium rare, to rare, fatty and stringy. After explaining that the pastry was still raw, ie: semi translucent uncooked, it was taken back to the kitchen. What was brought back was my beef with the old pastry removed put between 2 layers of pre-cooked cold pastry layers. Certainly not beef Wellington. The vegetables that were served had been precooked, sitting in a warm plate. We were offered two glasses of wine, (or a dessert which was already included with the meal) as compensation. My idea of restaurant week is a time when restaurants are trying to gain new customers. Never again! Don’t waste your money! This was most certainly NOT $41/dinner quality!! The price point FAR exceeds the quality. And, the “compensation” was insufficient to offset a ruined meal!

I have had many great meals at Horizons, but was disappointed in the citrus encrusted fish that I ordered during Restaurant Week. The fish was definitely overcooked and looked blackened (although this was not the description). Also the Bread Pudding had little flavor and was very dry. I am hopeful that this was a one time experience and other's at the table who ordered different entrees were very pleased with their meals.

Odd experience; on a Saturday night, only 3-4 tables were full, or even set. Good food, thoughtfully prepared, but with zero atmosphere. The overall experience belies the kitchen.

We have enjoyed dining at Horizons for years. The food has always been fresh and excellent. We are at the beach and expect fresh seafood. Horizons does not disappoint. Please do not expect deep fried. This seafood is much more elegantly prepared. My father prefers beef and he declared the medallions excellent. The waiter did an excellent job too.

This restaurant greatly exceeded my expectations! There were so many entrees that appealed to me and everyone in our party loved what they ordered. The appetizers were excellent, salads were fresh and the main dishes (rack of lamb, seafood cioppino, chicken piccata and salmon dish) were all amazing. We will be back. Great find and would definitely recommend!

Great food meets great friends. Just off First Coast Hwy, a restaurant with gourmet food that you are craving. A relaxed island atmosphere . One side with while linen table cloths and the other with booths and place mats. I met a charming and loving couple, The Hooves, so delightful and friendly. Chef Cortney ( and owner) is wonderful...so talented!! The food is good; cooked to order. Gluten free available upon request. The day I went, they launched a new menu.
