Seafood
Steps from Gulf Coast sunsets, Sails recalls the finest coastal flavors of France, Italy and Greece in each bite. Pairing the freshest food with exceptional five-star service amid beachy-chic décor, relaxed sophistication prevails at Sails, with a nod to the gracious manners of traditional fine dining, ever-so-slightly modernized. A display of whole fish delicacies from deep-azure seas are hand selected by each guest, then prepared to personalized perfection via wood-grilling or searing a la plancha. Sip craft cocktails or Sancerre while savoring just-shucked oysters at the sail-shaped hand-carved marble bar. Watch chefs in the open kitchen prepare tantalizing seafood towers. The menu encourages multitude courses in true European style starting with raw bar, crudo and tartares followed by luscious lobster or seared Kobé over just-picked organic produce. Elevated homemade pasta preludes composed seafood selections plus mouthwatering superior cuts of beef, redefining refined indulgence.

We had high expectations because we had been to Ocean House several years ago. We were there with friends at 8 on Saturday night. Most of the fresh fish on ice was gone. The menu was some what limited. Service and food was very good. I would suggest not sitting outside because of the traffic noise of motor cycles going by (no fault of the restaurant). Extensive and pricey wine list .

This was our first visit to Sails. It is surprisingly small and awkwardly laid out trying to fit as many seats as possible.

The menue is interesting and fit for the food adventurist. The fresh fish bar is particularly interesting and unusual here in Naples. The presentation of the food is good and the preparation is very nice. The service was also very good. The prices are a little high compared to comparable area restaurants.

Certainly can do away with the live music. Nobody listens and it just adds to the already high ambient noise level. It is just unnecessary.

We went for an early dinner birthday celebration and everything was outstanding- The service was fantastic interactive without being invasive, very polite and upbeat! You can tell the staff enjoys being there. The food was delicious from the appetizers to the pasta to the seafood and the dessert was wonderful. Best martini! The ambiance was so delightful especially for an early evening dinner. We will be back again and again and again! Wish I lived closer!

What looked like the start of a very nice evening unfortunately turned it to be NOT to as expected . When we sat down outside we noticed that the lighting was set up for a surgical event. We mentioned this to the person who sat us and she very nicely agreed and lower the lighting to a much better level. We then greeted by a bus/server/cocktail person. Who was very nice he asked to go view their fresh fish on ice for our selection for our meal. We sat down at 7:20PM. There were only a few choices left. We came back to our table and sat for 7-10 minutes that when a different person came up and very directly asked for our order. The fish we had wanted was gone already. He then suggested that we each order our own fish instead of split what appeared to be very large Red Snapper. We said okay based on his reasoning. We had also ordered 2 apps one tuna Tatar and oysters, along with 2 salads. We now sat for almost 30 minutes and we were surprised when the two women that were sat after us were being served their apps and then their entrees. We had only received bread and butter. We asked an employee if they could check on our apps. The oysters came out almost immediately. These weren’t good they we extremely fishy tasting and told our server. He accommodated by removing them immediately. Next our salads came about 10 minutes later. My salad was served in a hot plate ! I immediately asked the server about and he was apologetic when he took the dish he had to switch hands the bowl was that warm. The salad that came was the highlight of my meal. It was very good in an ice cold bowl. The entree (2 red snapper ) came out after another 10-12 minutes. The presentation look very nice. My wife and I took the first few bites and both asked is yours warm?? Neither one of these are any warmer than room temperature( would have been delicious if hot ) we never got tartar. All this for just under$500 wow! 2 wines per person. We could have easily split 1 fish almost 2 lbs each ? Hmmm?

Just returning to SW Florida we met friends for a Saturday evening dinner at our favorite Naples restaurant. One is immediately impacted by the friendliness and professionalism of every staff member from those pouring water through the hands on owner. Having a number of people paying attention to each table might result in either no one accountable for service or just being present too frequently. The Sail staff has managed to have multiple people provide seamless and excellent service.

Likewise the uniqueness of having fresh fish of a size allowing feeding multiple people and having hard to find species provides a different tasting experience. The food is excellent, the wine list impressive, and the desert menu unique and tasty. This is a true dining experience where 3 hours flys by!.

First visit. Very nice decor, although tables are jammed together a little too closely. Outdoor seating very pleasant.
Imaginative menu with impressive selection of fresh seafood. Food was exceptional.
That all being said, the service was extremely disappointing, especially for a restaurant of this caliber. Lots of different servers moving about, but no one person seemed to be dedicated to our table.
Pace of dining was perfect, but once the entrees were served, we never saw anyone. Took forever to have our plates cleared. No one offered dessert or coffee. They did respond appropriately to our dissatisfaction, however.
Food and atmosphere are so good, though, that we'll return.

We had dinner at the bar which is one of our favorite things to do. Marina made the perfect manhattan as well as a delicious ice cold shambord martini. My tuna was delicious and the presentation fabulous. Great location. Also, we were celebrating my wife’s birthday and was surprised by a complimentary (and delicious) dessert. Give Sail’s a try. You will not be disappointed. Almost forgot, the live music was awesome!

I start by saying that the food was excellent. I have tried many of the fine dining restaurants in Old Naples. Went here for first time for the sunset dinner special, a nice three course meal. The appetizers were great, good portions, delicious. I got the linguini and clam sauce as my main and the strange thing was that it was more of an appetizer size portion, much less than I would expect for a main, especially a pasta dish, pasta is cheap! Didn’t feel fulfilled or full. Deserts were good as were the craft cocktails. Sails is certainly very good as well as one of the priciest restaurants in Old Naples. For the price, would want larger size mains, don’t need to even consider I might go there and leave hungry. Regards. Ned.

A little bit more than other places in price but it is well worth it. Once season starts you will find it hard to get in. Loved the food. Martinis were great. Service was wonderful. Attention to their customers was A+++. We will definitely go back. A very special celebration place. Gerry M.

Our first visit to Sails was AMAZING from the atmosphere, food to the service. So when out of town friends wanted to take us to dinner, I chose Sails. We were expecting the same level of atmosphere, food, and service. We were given a choice of tables..the first in the front of the restaurant, but the air conditioning was very cold and the sax player too loud, so we opted for the back room, near the open kitchen. Unfortunately, the neighboring table was obnoxiously loud! (I realize Sails can not control that, but there were 2 open tables in the wine room where we could have been seated and they remained empty all evening.) As a table we selected the 5 course tasting menu. Our choices: stone crab (with an up charge) were served on an ice bed and the claws were watery; pork bellies were excellent; pasta choices were OUTSTANDING but very rich; halibut was excellent, but other fish choices ordinary. The chocolate soufflés were delicious (also an uncharge). Presentation of each course was well done. The wine list is superb, and the Poseidon Adventure cocktail is a favorite. The service level varied throughout the meal, from having 2 servers to waiting for the bread to be served. However, after raving about Sails to our friends, I was almost apologetic given the ups and downs of different courses, the on again off again service, coupled with the high cost of the meal.

Sails is an absolute Gem! The kitchen is outstanding (I’m a food snob); the menu is creative without being pretentious. Wonderful service. No detail is overlooked by the young couple who own this restaurant. It is a little pricey, but worth every penny! Best restaurant in Naples right now, IMO

Hands down the best meal we have had in Naples in a long time. From creative, tasty cocktails, to perfectly prepared appetizers, we thought we were in for an amazing meal. We had no idea how true that would be. Our Wagyu ribeye steaks, grilled to perfection, were accompanied by the smoothest potato puree and buttery mushroom side dishes. As good as the food was, the staff went above and beyond to make sure our experience was top notch. Thank you Sails!!
