I can't believe these last two negative reviews!!!

We read these reviews and ignored them since we had been here our first time two years ago and LOVED everything about it. It has a comfortable country, Italian "Feel" and the food is just great.

I stopped for lunch hoping that the name implied some fresh, possible good salads or something. When I walked in I knew I should turn around - the place just felt depressing. The servers were very nice, but even the best service cannot save a badly cooked meal. There is hardly anything on the menu, so I chose a panini... More

We were greeted by the owner, Diane, who was friendly, inviting and engaging. We had the shrimp with gorgonzola cream sauce and it was DELICIOUS. The restaurant is very charming. Loved this place. You will not be disappointed!

We stopped for lunch because it was convenient and had a delicious meal with attentive service. We had vegetable soup, arugula & pear salad, crab cakes and a steak sandwich. Each dish was well prepared with fresh ingredients. Definitely plan to return for dinner.

The crab cakes were on special and were absolutely fab! We also had the calamari which was tasty and fresh, the... More

Every year we visit the green house grill on vacation. We are impressed with a wide selection of wines and the food entrees are delicious and exceptionally tasteful. Our favorite menu items are the desserts. Frozen gelato and tiramisu are superb! And the music...... A blend of oldies from Dean Martin to Sinatra! Perfect!

We live on Sanibel and just returned after a four month trip out of the USA. Unpacking was dreary and boring but relieved by the wonderful brunch and dinner that we had at the Greenhouse Grill last week! This is a small restaurant, very easily missed since it sets well back from Sanibel's main road, Periwinkle Way. The restaurant also... More

I come to Sanibel Island every year and always make sure to visit the Greenhouse Grill. The food is excellent, tasty, beautifully presented. The service is good and attentive. Diane is the perfect hostess. Can't wait 'til next year. Ilse Wilnewic, Chicago, Illinois
