This was our second time eating at the Chateau . We very much enjoyed last week’s dinner and invited our friends to join us this week! Bella our server was excellent as was the meal! It did get a little noisy near the end of our stay. We will be back!
What a wonderful culinary experience! The ambiance is very charming, from perfectly dimmed Edison inspired lighting and candlers,to beach wood tables accented with cozy upholstered seating!
The fun-crafted cocktail menu, fresh ingredients, a American gusto /French inspired menu and a wait staff that truly cared about our experience, made it a memorable evening! Our new favorite place on the island!

Thank you for taking the time to leave this 5 star review! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your experience as we strive to make The Chateau Anna Maria more than just a great meal but a full experience with innovative drinks and menu items to enchant and delight! Please come back soon.
Start with the smoky river old fashioned! For dinner my wife had the chateaubriand and I had the chef's cut... both were some of the best we've had! Complimented with a bottle of French Medoc... reasonably priced! Finish with the homemade doughnuts! A perfect evening!
We are so thrilled to hear you enjoyed your smoky old fashioned, dinner, wine and dessert at The Chateau Anna Maria. Thank you, Avdtrvlr for taking the time to leave this review. We strive to create food and drinks that our customers can "experience". It sounds like you experienced two of our customer favorites in the smoky old fashioned and the homemade doughnuts. Please join us again soon for another unforgettable meal.
Have to say, that after a great anticipation,we were extremely disappointed.
They overbooked and put us in a room with 4 tables.
Our server was great.
Appetizers were fine. Meals were disappointing.
But will try them again, as everyone can have an off night.
And maybe they are still working out the kinks.
sf88 we would like to apologize that your meal did not meet your expectation or our goal of providing a delicious entree. Please come back again to give us the opportunity to make this right and provide the 5 star experience that we strive for all of our guests.
Charcuterie was good. Beet salad not very flavorful. Steak excellent. Halibut was slightly fishy Wait staff was very pleasant. Face shield’s while more attractive, are not as effective as face masks and create a false sense of security.
We will be back at some time and I realize location is new.
Hopefully they will reach potential of other location.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this detailed review. We will take into account your specific remarks dishes when speaking with our chef and planning future menus. Our servers are more than happy to put a mask on upon request. If you wish for further social distancing we have a ballroom & outdoor seating where tables are well spaced. Whatever we can do to make you comfortable will be done. We welcome the opportunity to wow you with your entire experience when you join us again.
Our server “Bella “ did an excellent job ! We love this new restaurant on Anna Maria Island ! Beautifully decorated with candle light and linen table clothes. The food was excellent regardless of what you may order ! We are fortunate to have this new 5 star restaurant on AMI .
Thank you Sacandaga for your detailed five star review. Bella is a wonderful member of our staff who works hard to ensure every guest receives five star service. Our decor reflects our desire to create a comfortable, relaxed and memorable ambiance. Please come back soon to taste additional menu items as we are adding new culinary delights & imbibe experiences all the time.
Excellent new restaurant for Anna Maria Island.

Average food. Service good.
JBRAUN thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to review your experience at The Chateau Anna Maria. We apologize that our food did not meet your expectations or our goal of providing excellent food and service. Please come back to give us a chance to make this right.
Everyone was mask compliant. Ate in dining room. Food was wonderful. Service excellent by Alex. Dessert was lovely. Felt safe in these crazy times. Wonderful experience. We are on island locals and welcome this fine establishment to AMI.
dreamweaver thank you. We appreciate the fact that you took the time to tell others about your positive experience with this review. We have been working hard since June of 202 on making our family owned restaurant a safe and clean enviornment with multiple seating options and enforcing facial coverings within our establishment. We will continue to provide you with a romantic island dining option for many years to come and are so happy to be a part of this beautiful local community.
We ate at The Chateau for the second time in a week and it did not disappoint!! The restaurant is beautiful and tastefully decorated. Our servers were Alex the first time and Bella the second visit. They are both wonderful and attentive servers. Highly recommend the mushroom ravioli, the chateaubriand, and the halibut. My daughter loved the chicken dish. The wine list is lovely and we enjoyed a bordeaux on our fist visit and the Chianti on the second. The cocktails are also beautifully presented. WE are so very glad to have this restaurant on AMI!!! We will be back for sure!!!
Lucky us to have had you twice in one week! Thank you for your patronage and for taking the time to let us know about your experience. Alex and Bella are both awesome servers who strive to make every dining experience a 5 star dining experience. We are just as glad to be on your lovely island. Thank you again for the warm welcome and awesome review. Introduce yourself MauraK when you are in again.
Food was very good. Service was good, too. Very pricey.
Bwils, from our family to you, thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We strive to provide a stellar experience on all levels and input like yours is invaluable to ensure we are doing so. As the owner, I look at these reviews daily to ensure we are meeting the needs of our customers. We welcome the opportunity to have you back to experience our five star food & service again. Once again, thank you for your review and visit.
The Chateau is a pleasant addition to the Anna Maria dining scene. While higher priced than most other island restaurants, The Chateau provides a much higher-end dining experience for those who may be a bit tired of Grouper specials and/or a loud restaurant.
Thank you for this 5 star review and pointing out the ways in which we stand out from the other local offerings. We pride ourselves on providing a beautiful setting and ambience in which to dine on delicious food and drink the night away! Looking forward to hosting you again soon.
Dinner at The Chateue Anna Maria was fantastic. The interior is beautiful and very romantic, but not intimidating. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and the food was great. My ravioli was absolutely amazing. Great addition to the area.
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to provide this feedback. It is our absolute pleasure to serve you and hope that you come back again for another 5 star experience.
Drove all the way from Naples to come to place and it did not disappoint. The food and service were top notch. Thank you!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We love that you took the trip to us from Naples and are proud to have exceeded your dining expectations. Come visit us again soon!
I was at the Chateau Anna Maria for my anniversary, what an experience. The place is absolutely beautiful and perfect for a special occasion. I had the Black Grouper it was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had the chefs cut, beat steak I have ever had. This place is above and beyond any restaurant in the area from Tampa to Naples. WOW!
Thank you for the wonderful 5 start review. Date nights and anniversary celebrations are so important to my wife and I. We are honored to have been a part of yours. Thank you for the specific remarks on the menu items you enjoyed. Our steak is legendary. Please join us again soon.
I had an incredible dinner at the Chateau Anna Maria! The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and our entire experience was top notch. I had the chicken francaise and it was delicious! Our server, Kim, was very knowledgeable and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It’s a great addition to Anna Maria!
It is wonderful to hear you had a 5 star experience at The Chateau Anna Maria. As the owner, I find feedback such as yours invaluable to meeting the needs of our local community of residents and tourists. Kim is absolutely dedicated to our customers needs and I am happy that you recognized her for that. Please join us again in the near future.
The food and ambiance was impeccable. The owner Buddy talked with us for a while which we really appreciated. We will definitely be back.
As the owner, I love coming out and taking to my guests! My restaurants are an extension of my home and of my Italian values of welcoming friends and getting to feed them. Thank you for coming to The Chateau Anna Maria. I look forward to enjoying a chat with you again soon.
When we arrived the front of house guy was lovely very friendly. He walked us through the beautifully redecorated restaurant out to the patio which was just ok. Our waitress was very helpful and always had a smile for us. Menu is nicely done but there isn't a good vegetarian selection which my husband eats due to health reasons. There are 3 salads offered which are ok but nothing special, my husband ended up ordering the Ceasars, very disappointing which even for this classic is hard to do. Arrived on a small plate that looked as if no one cared, when this salad is done well it has fresh anchovies and crispy croutons and fresh Parmesan. I ordered the Pasta which was lovely, freshly made with mushrooms and a light cream sauce, it was delicious. They do have a great wine list and cocktail list, love their beautiful oversized wine glasses. This restaurant has great potential, they work hard in the kitchen but have a few tweaks to work out. Ps..please over an appetizer of fresh Oysters
EatLoveFood1 thank you for your honest and detailed review. We love to receive feedback such as yours as we take it into account when menu planning. We just opened in late December and have plans to fully renovate and build out the outdoor patio space. We hope that you will give us another opportunity and come back to see the updated outdoor spaces.
My husband and I had a great date night at Château Anna Maria!
One of the things we strive for is providing a romantic and casual vibe and ambiance that is perfect for a date night. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are thrilled to hear about your night!
We used to frequent Eliza Anne’s quite a bit when it was open so we were excited to try. The service was SLOW. Our reservation was at 8 we actually got seated early around 7:45 and didn’t leave until 9:40 and we were pushing to order because we had a reservation at a bar at 9:45. We ordered one steak and half of it was medium the other half was purple and cold in the middle. The chicken was described to have a crust and there wasn’t any sort of crust on the top. Scallops were the best thing we had. Presentation wasn’t great. For almost a $300 bill I wouldn’t return unless it improves. Maybe because it’s newer they are working out the kinks?
BSMG we would like to offer our sincerest apologies that your experience did not meet your expectation. We strive to make every customer leave wanting to come back and input such as yours goes a long way towards meeting that goal. We do not like to rush our diners as the experience and ambience is a huge part of our vision. If you ever join us again and have somewhere to be, please let us know. Our staff will make every effort to have you out on time with efficient 5 star service.
Many good reasons to try this restaurant. The food is excellent.Ambience is delightful in a relaxing atmosphere. Lovely wine list. Our 1 concern about this restaurant is the price point on the wine list. Too many very high end bottles of wine along with the French wines. Not sure if many ( in this area) are familiar with the French wines.
barbarapio thank you for this detailed review. It is feedback such as this that ensures we are making every experience a 5 star experience. We will share your recommendations with our sommelier who will be sure to take this into account when making future wine selections. Please join us again soon and let us know your here so we can enjoy a glass of wine together!
What an exquisite way to spend our anniversary and NY EVE ! The entire family is on location from Lake George . The service was impeccable and The Chateaubriand ( I couldn’t resist ) melted in my mouth . The restaurant is attached to a hotel and is on the water , giving it a wonderful ( safe and open ) outdoor ambiance. What a GEM we have on AMI !
Thank you for taking the time to give us this 5 star review. This is what we strive for and hearing it from you is priceless. Please join us again soon.
Good quality ingredients worth the price , the chef obviously knows what he is doing . The service was awesome from the owners daughter getting us set up and Jessie who was our server was very sweet and knowledgeable about the menu and super attentive! ! We even appreciated the awesome hostess who seated us . This was our first visit and we will be back with friends and definitely referring others !!!
Thank you for your 5 star review. I am so happy that you enjoyed the food and service. We appreciate referrals and word of mouth as this is how my wife and I find all of our favorite restaurants. We hope to have you join us again real soon.
The food was excellent as well as the choices on the wine and drink menu. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed sitting outside and were delighted to chat with the owners table side. They are going the extra mile to assure a successful dining experience and make Chateau Anna Maria a go to place for fine dining.
We will be back soon!
Hello Patricia! We appreciate you taking the time to write this 5 star review. Thank you for recognizing the pride we take in our restaurant- we always love a table side chat with our valued customers about our passion! We hope to welcome you back soon for another 5 star dining experience!
This place is great happy to have something new on the Island. Great cocktails and the staff was very nice and our waitress Kim was great, make sure you try the blood orange cocktail very tasty.
5 stars is what we get out of bed for. Thank you for this stellar review! We are very happy to be on your beautiful island and have felt welcomed and embraced by the local community. Here is too many more blood orange cocktails and quiet nights on the island! Please join us again soon.
Had a great lunch on the patio with Freddie from the TV show. We can’t wait to come by boat next time.
Aww thank so glad Freddie took good care of you.
The service was on point, very attentive. We dine at a lot of Zagat rated 5 start restaurants and The Chateau far exceeded our expectations. The tuna tartare was phenomenal, the drinks were excellent and the steaks were honestly the best we’ve had in a very long time, even better than Burns in Tampa. We will definitely be back!
AngelaA, wow we love hearing this feedback. As foodies ourselves, we also dine at Zagat and 5 star restaurants and we strive to be in those categories for each and every guest. Please say hello when you come back and make it soon! Thank you again for your review.
Nice portions of food especially with price but temperature of food was a bit off, not hot enough. Also needed a bit more salt. Service was outstanding.
hikerbabe, thank you for taking the time to leave this review. My family takes into account all of your comments as we strive to create a menu and experience that will leave you wanting to return! When you do come back, please let us know is anything is not to your liking and our chef will gladly make it right. Thank you again for your visit and review!
For our anniversary we wanted to try this new restaurant. When we arrived for our 5:30 reservation through Open Table we were told our table was outside. When we questioned why, we were offered an inside option. I enjoyed my Alaskan Haddock that was great but My wife ordered steak that was a tough cut with gristle. On the bright side, our server Bella was great. There new and still finding their rhythm.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this detailed review. We offer outdoor, ballroom and inside seating and are happy to work with you to ensure your seat is comfortable and meets your expectations. In the current COVID climate, we have found that having multiple seating options is appreciated by our customers. We apologize that your wife's steak was tough. This is not the impression we want to leave you with and we would like to welcome you back to make it right!
We decided to eat outside. With COVID. Dining room seemed crowded. It was chilly outside and there was only 1 heater outside and the other table had the heater. There were 3 other heaters , but none of them worked. Service was good. The waiters wore clear face shields versus mask. Felt very uncomfortable with waiter talking down to us. All the service people had mask which the waiters should have had as well. The 1st wine selection we order they were out of. The 1 st entree we order , they were out of! The quality of food was good, but value was not there. The entrees were expensive.wines were expensive. The ambiance looked nice inside, but outside was just plain tables. Old furniture. Hopefully they will feel they are over reaching as far as clientele and adjust their prices or they need to up their game. Maybe it will be a better place for lunch! High prices does not mean fine dining. Will wait to hear how our friends feel after they visit. But for now, very doubtful we will return. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience
Thank you for visiting. Our servers are happy to put a mask on based on requests. We do wear the plastic face covering as we were very successful with them in NY with over 45,000 customer touches, no COVID cases to our staff nor our customers. We apologize for being out of your first selection of wine/entrée the response to our opening has been greater than expected and we're working hard w our venders. Also, offer seating in the ballroom you would like a more socially distant experience.
Cocktails were great
Meals were wonderful
Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed yourself and hope to see you again soon.
Great atmosphere, great service, great food. Need I say more!!
Thank you for the kind words Barbara!
Had a great time dining there last night, their staff from New York is a great addition to the island. Very excited to have them on the island.
Thank you so much, We are happy to be on the island and glad you enjoyed yourself.
We had our Christmas dinner there & it was wonderful! Can’t wait to go back.
Thank you Kathy we are so glad you chose to join us on Christmas. We hope to see you again soon.
Christmas Day and they were busy but everyone was nice and food was good!
Thank you for choosing to spend your Christmas with us.
We are part time residents of Anna Maria and just enjoyed a fantastic Christmas dinner at the Chateau AMI. Bella our server did a great job. Attentive and friendly, she gave us some background on this latest culinary addition to the island. I Had the Halibut, my partner had the Caesar salad and mushroom ravioli. The food was quality, fresh and flavorful. The service and ambiance spot on. And the key lime pie, was, I agree with the other reviews the best out there. A very welcome addition to dining on the island. We will be back and back and back.....
Thank you for the the glowing review, so happy you chose to spend your Christmas with us. We hope to see you again soon.
Our entrees were excellent: Chateaubriand and mushroom ravioli.
Thank you Roberta so glad you like your entrees.
We had an amazing dinner. This was our second time dining here. Highly recommend the halibut and I had the prime rib special for the night. Our waitress Bella was excellent.
Vic, thank you so much for joining us we are glad you enjoyed yourself so happy Bella took good care of you. We hope to see you again soon.
Menu is full of unique choices. Substitutions were honored where requested. A great addition to dining choices on AMI
Georgie thank you for the five stars we are so glad you enjoyed the menu. We are so happy to be part of the island family.
