Such a shame. We had reservations at 7:00; if you want to be up in the front room get there earlier. Our waiter was very hard to understand and seamed to be a bit nervous to serve us. We ended up leaving not because of the cost but because of the overall first impression. We have been there before and... More

Menu is varied enough to meet palates of many but specials are always interesting, too. The salsas add a great dimension to the dishes, atmosphere is calming and watching the sunset over the gulf is a plus.

First time there, beautiful restraunt and amazing location. Perfect to have dinner and then walk across the street for sunset. My food was perfect. Filet was cooked beautifully and the bisque was heaven. The service was slow and somewhat poor( I think he was busy, but for then pr

Great food and service! Servings are small but it's well worth the money! The kids loved the bread and dipping oil. Blue crab bisque was amazing!

This restaurant was outstanding! All eleven of us ate there. We were so surprised to hear of their special. If two entrees were ordered you got a free bottle of wine. So we drank for free all night. Every dish was delicious. Hats off to all the staff.

The Old Captiva House on Captiva Island, FL was just perfect for that early evening dinner with the sunset in the background and the beautiful garden environment out on their patio! My waiter, Nile, was just as pleasant as anyone could possibly expect. Attentive, polite and handled the delivery of my perfect meal just perfectly! The food there was unique... More

Dinner tonight was average at best. I've had much better Grouper ($34) at other establishments on the island for much less. My husband had a steak ($35) which he enjoyed, but nothing special. The atmosphere was very nice. Service was OK. Piano music was enjoyable. Felt that everything was mediocre, overly priced and probably would not return.
