    We had never been here before and were very impressed. Food and service was superb. Staff very attentive. Was a bit noisy though as we were sat next to the bar. Next time we will definitely try to sit in the front room

    Old Captiva HouseResponded on September 18, 2022Thanks Roxychick for the great review! Our apologies, the main dining room is usually a bit quieter than this past weekend, we did have the Island Hopper Festival on property so we hope that you got an opportunity to at least enjoy some of the live music too. We will happily share your review with our staff and we hope to see you again in the future!

    Went to Old Captiva House for our anniversary dinner tonight. Had drinks, roasted shrimp cocktail appetizer, salad. I had the chef special which was golden tile fish and hubby had the NY strip. We then shared crème brûlée for dessert. Our meals were fabulous and the ambiance was quiet reserved and very classy. It was a great end to a beautiful anniversary day.

    The cocktails and food were very good! The service was great! The restaurant, inside and out looked nice! The parking was difficult. Not enough spaces! The very short walk across the street to watch the sunset was convenient! We’ve been there for breakfast and dinner and will def return next time we are in the area!

    Old Captiva HouseResponded on September 12, 2022Thank you KristenL! We are glad to hear how much you enjoyed your visit with us, the sunset view is pretty special.

    Bkfst is excellent and moderately priced with some unusual, tasty choices, like homemade shrimp sausage omelette and Grand Marnier French Toast. Many bkfst choices, compared to dinner which is good, but expensive, with fewer choices, and hardly anything for Vegans.

    Old Captiva HouseResponded on August 29, 2022Thanks for your review Tiki, happy to hear you enjoyed your meals with us. Next time you are in the area just ask to speak with the Chef in duty if you have something in particular in mind.

    Pretty venue and nice menu but the coking was not quite as good as it should have been. Bisque was lukewarm and bland. Wedge salad was drowned in dressing and whatever they added to make it red took away from the blue cheese flavor. Mains had a sour taste to the sauces. Key lime pie was extraordinarily basic for such a nice place.

    Old Captiva HouseResponded on August 29, 2022We are disappointed to hear of your experience DidNotLuv and wish we had been made aware of your dissatisfaction on the evening you dined with us when management visited as a table touch to inquire about your meals. We would have been happy to offer alternative suggestions and replaced what you were not happy with if you were dissatisfied as we take all of our guest experience into consideration for areas of improvement. Best of luck with the rest of your Island dining experiences in the area.

    We arrived a few minutes early, but were seated straight away. Foul weather and being on motorcycles meant we were drenched and bedraggled, yet still welcomed as warmly as anyone else in attendance. Our server Hannah was very friendly yet efficient, as were the various others stopping by to refill water glasses, clear plates, etc. The food was impeccable, three of our party order filet at three different finished temperatures, yet all came out simultaneously along with my Gruyère chicken Alfredo, We lingered over the food, really enjoying the meal and did not feel rushed. A lovely experience, and one we look forward to repeating next time we ride that way.

    Overall, a VERY nice experience! Warm greetings from the host table as we entered! Our server, David, was attentive and helpful, so was Tavari when we had a little service mishap! Nice quiet birthday celebration with a pleasing water view that reminded us of our "tropical" location. Our party of 4 enjoyed all of their cocktails! The cioppino and steak were excellent, but the blackened fish with polenta, no so much AND the iceberg wedge was drowned by an over abundance of so-so dressing French blue cheese dressing. We shared a slice of carrot cake (with a birthday candle) of which we all agreed was one of the best we've ever had! We would definitely come back!!

    Waitress was fully engaged with another table that came in after us. Forgot to bring bread as promised. Food was a split, scallops were good, but overpriced. Prawns on lobster risotto was not good. Risotto was sitting in the pot/kitchen too long, it was mushy and the lobster claw meat was overcooked. The risotto also had too much wine in it. Topping the risotto were three prawns that were not prawns just extra large shrimp (only three in serving as well) and were severely overcooked. I do not mind paying for quality food, this was not quality food. We spent $150 on 2 entrees and two drinks.

    Old Captiva HouseResponded on August 19, 2022Thank you for your comments Kerry, we will share this with our team.

    10/10 recommend dinner here! The service was terrific. We come here every year during family vacation and this is our one nice family dinner out. The wedge salad and blue crab soup were delish. I got the filet and it was mouth watering cooked to perfection. My husband gets the Fisherman’s Stew every year and loves it. My dad enjoyed his sea bass. The decor is very beautiful like old Key West or Old Captiva style hah.

    The fish of the day was excellent The starter dish lobbster Pasta was also delicsious The dessert, chocolate with berries in grand manier was very nice One person of 4 was vegeterian. Unfortunately there was only 1 vegan menue on the card- basmati rice with grilled vegetable. This was a little disappointing.

    Our server, Hannah, was very professional. She knew the dishes and the wine list. My only real complaint was that the wine and beer lists were quite abbreviated, particularly the beer list (see attached photo). I mean, not a single local brew and there are several available in Lee County, home of this restaurant. A disappointment.

    The hostess Samantha was very friendly and welcoming. The food is of high quality so worth the price. We dined two evenings here and two specials were offered each night and they changed. One was a local fish and one a steak. Everything we ordered was delicious-escargo , lobster crab cake & lobster ravioli apps; Ribeye and Crab/lobster encrusted scallops, and I prefer Tri Tail over Pompano fish. Key lime pie is amazing! Highly recommend dining here!

    Food was okay, and nice presentation, but not up to a fine dining experience. This place wants to be fine dining according to their prices, but it is more of a family style. Very noisy and lots of children running around. Not really a good choice for a romantic meal.

    Great food. Well prepared. Very fresh. The ambience is great-- reminds one of an upscale island restaurant from 1903. Our waitress was courteous and attentive. Bring your wallet.

    6 escargot18.50 2 scallops Cooper was cold and still wet three drinks our bill was $200

    Old Captiva HouseResponded on August 7, 2022Dear DENNISH, Thank you for your feedback and review! Our escargot is comparable in market price right now but we offer a different spin on the plate with our Executive Chef's creative recipe. Our scallops are usually a big hit! We hope you spoke with a manager that touched your table that evening. Keeping our guests happy is our main priority. Thanks again!

    Came with a party of 8. Very welcoming. Beautiful decor inside. Excellent service. Wine selection and quality was great. Food was exceptional. The triple tail, grouper, and Chilean sea bass were phenomenal.
