We decided on this little romantic spot based on 5 star trip advisor reviews. Im so glad we went . Summer was our waitress. She kept things flowing all night & made sure we had everything we needed.

Excellent family owned restaurant. We had the charcuterie board & beef carpaccio to start . Chateau Briand & the Ribeye special . The finishing touch was the in house homemade key lime pie . Summer was our waitress & also the owners daughter . She was not only very polite but very knowledgeable about each & every menu item . We enjoyed our date night out & will look forward to the next time . Don't miss the opportunity if you get the chance to go to this establishment, you wont regret it .

The service was very good and attentive.

The problem is that the food is at best mediocre. We live part time on the island and know the restaurants well. This is clearly the worst of the high end ones...food is NOT FRENCH in any way. The word “Chateau” means quality service and food....name is very presumptuous.

The risottos, both pea and lobster, were bland. The blue cheese dressing was, of all things, sweet!!! The signature steak would be better at most any chain resturant. Finally, the 2008, $140 wine had not been treated properly. The cork had almost no wine color...probably standing in a wear house for years. Could be a close out somewhere. It did open reasonably but not a $140 worth.

Overall, this is an “All hat and no cattle” restaurant.

Would not consider returning....too many excellent options in the area.

The total bill with tip was almost $400. I can name 5 restaurants that would dazzle a patron for that price.

This is not a good option for dining on the island. We have much better choices available.

I chose it for a business meal because, most likely, the party would be on a business credit card. Never would I advice paying for this privately.

Wonderful experience at this lovely fine dining restaurant. Located within in the Waterline Resort, it has a wonderful assortment of menu choices, especially the appetizers. We ordered the seafood tower, generously stocked with lobster, shrimp, king crab legs, oysters and clams. Fresh and delicious! Great seafood and steaks as well as specials. Extensive wine selection and other specially made cocktails that we watched go by our table throughout the evening. Topped off by wonderful service that accommodated us at every step. Shout out to Adam our waiter and Fred, the personable host who both treated us as if we were regulars and made us feel at home. We’ve already been enchanted with our visit to Ana Maria Island and this experience made it even better! Highly recommend it if you’d like a special dining experience!

Great drinks! Great Food! Great Service! Our server Joey took very good care of us. Not a big thing, but be aware that if you dine outside the view of the marina overlooks the resort pool. We moved to a table inside which still gave us a nice view and a bit better ambiance. Really nice experience. Cool place to add to our fine dining rotation.

The food was good but expensive. Improperly greeted by hostess which got us off to a poor start. Outside seating area no very attractive due to proximity to swimming pool. Big fences and dirty towels on chairs obscure the water view we were hoping for. Noisy. Thought it could have been more pleasant inside but when we left it was crowded and noisy. We had heard good reviews but came away very disappointed.

Becky we are sorry to see the 2 stars. We do our best to moderate the pool area but being a hotel during spring break that is not always easy. We do hope you will give us another chance to win back your patronage.

This was the best meal my wife and I have had at any restaurant in Florida. The food was spectacular, I had the steak with rub which was outstanding. I’d put it up against the best steakhouses in the country.

My wife had the Yellowfin Tuna which was amazing also. This is a must go to restaurant! The owners (Summer Rush, The Food Network) were making sure everyone had a first class experience.

Wonderful dining experience and great ambiance - perfect for a date night or dinner with friends.

Food and drinks were amazing. Ribeye special was cooked to perfection - would highly recommend. Sweet pea risotto was also delicious. Paloma was our go-to drink, and we also enjoyed the lemon drop martini.

Service was top notch. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Would highly recommend for anyone visiting or in the area.

We plan to come back very soon!

What a wonderful experience start to finish! Mark the manager greeted us at the door and immediately set the tone for the rest of the evening. He asked my husband and I if we were celebrating anything and we just thought it was such a beautiful gesture. We were early for our reservation so we had a drink at the bar. Cat and Sadie were the bartenders and they were sensational. Their knowledge of the wine and cocktail menu was impressive. Our server Evan was attentive and sharp. He helped us navigate through the menu and was so helpful. We had the chateaubriand and the snapper. Absolute dynamite!!! I don’t think I’ve ever had a steak cooked that well! Freddy also came to our table and introduced himself. He is the other manager, and he was so informative and cheerful. We ended the dinner with the key lime pie. YOU MUST TRY!!! Again we can not thank the Chateau Anna Maria enough for our incredible evening! What a hidden gem.

AMAZING!! Came in and was brought right to a perfect table. Our request was waiting for us on the table with a cute personal note from the GM Mark. We love our Tequila!! Thx!! Mark told us all about the place and how we can also visit up North. He really knows how to make you feel welcomed and made us feel right at home. We started our night with some aps tuna tartar and the lamb PERFECT!! We then followed it with the wedge salad and clams OUTSTANDING!! Chef Ty then came out and chatted with us and helped us pick our entrees. Our choices steak and fish were EXCELLENT!! Our server Fred was so funny and personable. We were too full for dessert but ended it with a lovely night cap at the bar. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Took my daughter for dinner. We got drinks, dirty martini and the new drink with empress gin. appetizers, tuna tartar, carpaccio, and Brie. Tuna tartare and carpaccio were excellent. Probably would order the charcuterie rather than the Brie next time. Finished off with donuts
I have been before and gotten lollipop lamb chops which were excellent. Love the ambiance and the music was not loud and nice background. Second time I had the same waitress end she is excellent
This is one of my favorite restaurants to bring guests to.

This is the dining experience Anna Maria Island needed. More upscale than other places...this is a really nice restaurant. I ate outside which ended up being a bit sunny and lots of kids in the adjacent hotel pool. But it was a spring break week so it was as expected. It’s a resort town...keep your expectations in check! The food was sublime. I am hard to please and can cook anything. I go out to eat to have a break and usually just endure the food. Chateau was a lovely escape. Excellent, delicious preparations. From our cocktails to dessert...we loved every bite. And no, it’s not overly expensive for the experience. It’s perfectly priced. Don’t change a thing!!

$60 steaks and paper napkins ? Service could have been better for the prices. The Donut “Experience “ dessert seems like it was stolen from the Donut Experiment on Pine. Donuts were overcooked. Trying to be fancy but missing the mark. Hopefully still working out the kinks

Anyway he was very familiar with the menu, respectful, personable, and had great recommendations. The red snapper was amazing!!!

Overpriced for Easter brunch considering food presented for the $60/pp. All mussels on buffet were closed, apparently they were not cooked properly. If you managed to get one open, the meat was stringy and over cooked inside. Shrimp undercooked. Desserts available were scarce and unappetizing. Pasta and oysters were best offerings on the menu. Its not the type of French restaurant we are used to. Wait staff were polite.
