    We have been to the Island View before, we did not know that it was being renovated. Therefore we expected a great view of Ft Myers beach, instead it was moved to the 1st for durning the renovations with a limited view. The service was extremely slow. At one point we were told that our drinks were delayed do to the bartender leaving. We order a sea food tower that was good but there must have been a 30 minute wait for the main course. When the main course did come out we had no plates. We had a great time with our friends but not such an enjoyable evening with service and a marginal view. We will not be returning till the renovations are done.

    This was not at the rooftop restaurant because that’s undergoing renovation. We knew that. The room being used in very dated. The singer was too loud nd not very good singing old songs. The whole scene was from 50 years ago. My wife ordered a dish that should have been mild but was very spicy so that she had to scrape off the toppings. We got various explanations but apparently there was a spice added that was not listed on the menu. We did not get an offer to replace it but did get a 10% discount on the entire bill and a free dessert. Server was friendly but only mediocre. I wouldn’t go again but will try when rooftop is renovated.

    The experience at the Island View was a surprise. It was absolutely perfect on every level. The Host was so welcoming, the waiter couldn't have been more attentive, the food was special and we had an ocean view. It was our Anniversary and they have us a special dessert on the house. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    We had a spectacular night with dinner, appetizers, drinks, then dessert. We enjoyed their pasta dishes for just Two-for-$30 every Sunday evening, from 5 to 9 p.m. Our waiter was awesome and so attentive. The manager or person over the restaurant came over to check up on us. Our table was at a location where we saw the sunset. We celebrated my 19th wedding anniversary and my friends birthday. Thanks everyone for a most memorable night.

    Booked based on a recommend from a friend. Unfortunately, "unadvertised" changes. Restaurant going through refurb, no notice on website, temporarily downstairs. Menu was not what is on website. Server was fine, just had to be apologetic. The "entertainment" was horrible, in a word. He could not carry a tune in a bucket, and was very distracting. Cannot recommend and will not be returning.

    We were greeted by the hostess and manager, Sean, both were very accommodating to make sure our party had a nice comfortable table. Our server, a gentleman was so kind and helpful. He was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Sean circled around ensuring steaks were done perfect and food tasted wonderful. Clearly they take pride In their food! We had a party of 6 celebrating a Birthday. We had a variety of dishes from pasta, to surf and turf. Everything was outstanding! We loved the rainbow cookie cake as our Birthday dessert as well. What a great night! Prices were very reasonable and portions were generous!

    We were a group of 29 people. And the service we got was really friendly and very nice. The bad thing is that in the end a waiter threw a bill on the table that was not ours and he yelled at us that he earned very little money and that he was complaining about why we gave him so little money on his tip. In the end, it resulted in an error because the bill was from another table and the man apologized to my group because I asked him to. (he doesn't want to do it). It was extremely unpleasant and uncomfortable, but I can't stop congratulating the hostess who was always very kind as well as the other waitress (a very nice woman), who always attended to us with a smile. Despite the unpleasantness of the moment, we enjoyed it very much. the musician was wonderful. Angelica M.

    View was awesome. Food was excellent. Happy hour had really good deals. Dinner prices were reasonable. Our group had seafood pizza, oyster Rockefeller, lobster flatbread, grouper Oscar and linguini with clams. Everything was really good and the service was first class. Don’t judge the restaurant by the hotel you walk through to get there. It’s very casual and a big party atmosphere but the restaurant is very classy.

    Food was good. Staff was friendly. Large portions. Only problem we had was they lost our order ticket and had to wait 1 and 1/2 hours for our entrees. They tried to compensate for that by giving us free desserts however we are not dessert eaters so it wasn't much of a compensation. However, that being said, I would certainly go back there.
