    Delicious! The service was excellent and the food very tasty! One improvement could be more variety on the menu. I had the bolognese and the husband the cioppino . Both meals were delicious and the portions were just right.

    I ordered the pasta carbonara with chicken. The chicken looked & tasted as if it was boiled. Asked the waitress how they cooked it & she said it was grilled. She made no attempt to take it back or even comment further. The pasta itself was not worth it. Thankfully I ate enough bread & some of my wife’s sea bass which was good.

    Everything was just okay. Nothing exceptional and nothing I would rush back to get. I think it was pricey for the quality. The view out the windows to the pool and ocean were definitely the best part in my opinion.

    Service was decent, food was just terrible. Had the swordfish, it was so dry I sent it back. Wife had the seafood pasta dish(can’t recall the actual name) it was not terrible but it wasn’t good either...had a hair in it, could have been hers at least that’s what we told ourselves...kiddo had the surf and turf which was actually ok. Key lime pie was just bad, what ever that neon green sauce they put on it is just bad. Tiramisu was hot and that’s just weird, flavor was decent. Overall it’s your typical resort restaurant with a captive audience. Steer clear if you can.

    The restaurant overall was a very good experience for my wife and I. We did enjoy the food but there wasn’t a whole lot of choices on the menu for food wise. However that would be my only knock against Rae’s. Our server Lloyd was great and he was very friendly.

    Service was horrible they need to do a better job at training the waitress. We ordered 2 appetizers received one and 20 minutes later we still had not received the second order. Our waitress no where to be found. Finally we cancelled the appetizer. Waited another 15 minutes to receive meal. No refill on water and no checking to see if we wanted more wine until we were done. Wine was not good, spaghetti bolognes was good, tiramisu was delicious. I would not go back.

    We had a party of 6 adults and 3 children. 3 of the adults enjoyed their meals and had grouper, pork, and shrimp. I had the chicken and I felt it had been sitting for a while. The potatoes were fingerling, not mashed like the menu said, and the chicken was chewy and just didn't meet the expectation considering the name of the dish was Ida's favorite or famous chicken...something like that. Our server was very personable, helpful, and attentive. Rae's is a VERY small restaurant with limited hours, so I can see why you might need reservations. I had it built up in my mind, considering it was a very advertised restaurant by the resort. And I really try to give places the benefit of the doubt, but I was underwhelmed.

    Service was good, attentive. Italian wedding soup all cheese. Never had Italian wedding soup made this way. Filet Mignon was well done, not medium rear as ordered. Pasta was good. My wife finished her dinner before they brought out the corrected Filet Mignon. Waitress & manager were apologetic and nice. No atmosphere in the restaurant. Selling point is seeing the sunset from your table. It wasn’t worth it. Pink Shell needs to reimagine this restaurant.

    Service was good until other customers arrived. Had to ask to have our drinks refilled as my beverage was empty before the meal came. Food was good, however cut back on the fettuccine sauce, it was far too rich to eat the whole plate.

    Indoor dining. It food was decent. We ate there since we stayed at the resort and spent our time at the resort for the day. The special birthday accommodations never happened or was acknowledged. After spending $1000+ at the hotel, that is the least effect that can be done for a birthday request. Quite disappointed in that front. As for the food, it was good relative to hotel food.

    Our server Ali was awesome. There was a limited menu which didn't offer much. The Caesar salad was fresh and delicious, however they were served in warm bowls, that's a real no no in the restaurant industry. My husband has some pasta with seafood, shrimp, mussels, fish and calamari. He said it was delicious but a little spicier than what he was expecting. I had the meatball, which was delicious. 2 things to note for an Italian restaurant: they did not offer parmesan when they served our meals and they did not offer or even have any pasta spoons. We asked and was offered a teaspoon or a soup spoon. If you're Italian and eat pasta, you know what I'm talking about. The Moscato was also on point. They did not have espresso either. Great staff, great food, great staff, great views. Just missing a few key items to be a top level Italian restaurant.

    We enjoyed Rae’s several time already and enjoyed the food and service levels. When the restaurant is full the noise level is too loud. Definitely need better acoustics! Having said that , we’ll go again, but pick a quieter less busy time slot. Fix the noise, and you’ll deserve a 5-star rating

    We were celebrating a friend's 65 birthday and she wanted to go to a nice restaurant on the beach with a view of the Gulf so we could watch the sunset from our table. The Manager was so kind to accommodate our request and gave us an awesome table next to the window with a perfect view to watch the sunset which was amazing! All of the courses were spectacular and did not disappoint. The appetizers, entrees, desserts and cocktails were spectacular! We will definitely return again soon.

    First ones to dine and said they were out of Fettuccine noodles.. How could they if we were the first diners? It would be nice if we could understand the waitress.. She was very nice, but could barely understand her. Very expensive for a bad meal.
