We had dinner at The Maritana on our first night of two, staying at the Don Cesar. The decor is pleasant but not outstanding. The waiter - although very excitable and agitated, was very attentive to our needs (including that one of us is vegetarian). The meals were good, but tiny in that way that this kind of upscale restaurant... More

Though we had a "limited" selection for our meal due to our size, no one seemed to notice. The kitchen was great at accommodating some special dietary needs and the service (planning & execution) was excellent. Thank you Radhika!

When in St. Pete Beach and looking for a first class restaurant, the top of the food chain is the Maritana Grille. Lowe's Don CeSar resort is a throwback to Gatsby-esque days of Grand Hotels when elegance, quality and service was a standard. The pink palace on the gulf still delivers on that promise. The decor is modern/nautical with tanks... More

The chef is true to his mission for utilizing local seafood in a creative and flavorful way, well prepared dishes, outstanding presentations from what we observed on the tables of our fellow diners. The staff is well trained and attentive without being obtrusive, thanks. One day, we would like to come back to try the "Prix Fixe," 5 course meal.... More

Jeff at the bar is the place to be even if you can get a table! My sister-in-law and brother had heard rave reviews at the beach bar about the food to die for. It's all true...exquisite food, over the top service and an evening I will never forget!

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at the Don Cesar and the primary reason we wanted to spend the weekend here was to enjoy a "night to remember" meal at the Maritana Grille. I'm so happy that we did! We considered enjoying the paired wine and food menu for the evening but decided that it might be too... More

This is a beautiful hotel and a lovely restaurant. The service was so good and the food was quite good. I had the turbot the first night - it was good but a bit 'thick' and more 'chewy' than I have had before, also there was a lot of it! The second night I had the scallops and they were... More

We enjoyed the experience and the atmosphere very much. The food was also very, very good! Both servers, (Jeff 1 and Jeff 2) were very good at what they do. Ina edition to providing impeccable service, their knowledge of the menu and the preparations was amazing. We had a great experience!

This was our third time to have our Thanksgiving meal at the King Charles, Don CeSar Hotel. The food was excellent and it would be difficult to name something not on the buffet - ham, turkey, seafood (crab, shrimp, various kinds of fish), prime rib, many salads, many types of vegetables, omelets and a large dessert section. The quality and... More

It was our honeymoon and we decided that we would treat ourselves. My husband and I ordered several courses and savored them over 3 hrs. The service was incredible. The waitress was present when we needed her, but allowed us the space to immerse ourselves in the culinary experience. She also suggested a spot-on red wine pairing that went with... More
