Nice bistro on Sanibel

We're repeat customers-- Late night after movie coffee and dessert, Family meals, Holiday brunches. Food and service always has been great. Particularly late night after dinner, movie, or shopping-- we are welcome even if just getting coffee and a snack.

went in after a 14 hour drive... had what they called a grouper panini which turned out to be jar tartar sauce and a cheap hamburger bun with one piece of lettuce and tomato on it. The tomato was the best part... waiter explained that they usually put the sandwich on a nice ciabatta ... but apparently the gas station... More

When I am on vacation I hate long lines, overcrowded restaurants with gimmicks that rely on okay food and service. Driving down Periwinkle Way looking for something better, we stumbled across the Greenhouse Grill. Not much from the outside and we were worried because it was not very crowded in the lot, but gave it a try. Great greeting by... More

First Class, this was one of the nicest meals we had during our time on Sanibel Island. The owner Diane was adorable and the service from John was impressive. A real good food, home cooked experience was had at this restaurant. It doesn't look much from the outside, but it all takes place when you get in there. I was... More

Atmosphere was rather depressing, pretty empty feel about it, no warm welcome. The home made lemonade was good but the food more than average, with frozen avocado and dry chicken. Worst part of the experience was the service. It was not terribly friendly which is unusal for Sanibel Island. The final straw for me was the fact that the waitress... More

3 of us for lunch, 2 of us had grouper sandwich. mine was so smelly & unpalatable, I could not stomach it. I discretely advised the owner & she said she would take it off the bill & apologized. Several minutes later, she came to the table with a stainless steel bin containing a few pieces of fish & told... More

I loved the Chicken Marsala and my wife raved about the Pork Shank! I would recommend it for a night out for fine dining!

Cute environment good fresh Italian cuisine. Great kids menu. The service was a little lacking but not bad. Whatever you get, you have to get a plate home cut fries.

We stopped here for lunch. We had 4 different dishes (2 kids) and everyone cleared their plate. Their fries are homemade and delicious. We all had dessert too and again weren't disappointed!

I wanted to try this restaurant because of the overall good reviews. The service was wonderful and we felt very welcomed. The food was really good (I cleared my plate!). I appreciated the fact that it wasn't terribly busy and the wait time for the food was very good.
