From the moment you enter the Maritana Grille in the lobby of the Don Cesar, you know you are in for a glamourous evening. Start with a drink at the bar (ginger ale for me, please). The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, making sure you know everything you need to know about the menu. This is Florida so fish is... More

We were told the chef had changed since last year-not quite the same menu selection. My dinner partner had a super meal (gave me a taste)-mine-so/so. Had the Snapper it was a little bland and not quite up to the cost we paid. Dessert was not what I expected. Our last meal was out of this world. Everything seems to... More

This is my first review and I am proud to say that the food met my exceptions. This was our 5th year anniversary, so we went all out. We had the hearts of romaine and the crab cakes for a app. Both were good but not mind blowing. Should have had the pork belly or froe gras. Got the grouper... More

Best seafood for certain on the east coast and rivals The Crab Catcher in La Jolla, maybe better! Save room for dessert as well, fantastic! Very beautiful surroundings and... More

The food was excellent but with all the awards in your face and the descriptions on the menue, you expect a culinary sensation, which in my opinion it wasn't.

We ate here for our anniversary. It was delicious. Wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. Food was great. Ambiance was lovely. We had to wait to be seated, even though we had reservations.
