Liked the service, the atmosphere and the great seafood. I thought the hostess was terribly accommodating and our waiter knowledgeable. Nothing to dislike.

Went to the lounge area a couple of nights as was the only place we found that had live music and a dance floor. Much of Sanibel turns down very early so this is the place to go for "late" night. Only had some "bar" food and beers served by friendly waitresses.

The entrees were variable—the veal piccata w/capers was tender and tasty but the shrimp paradiso included far more linguini than shrimp. The salmon was flaky, tender and prepared as requested. The asparagus was steamed just to crispness, but the warm bread was flavorless. . The baked potato was hot, but served without butter until we requested it. Our server, Katerina,... More

We love The Jacaranda. You can be dressed up or down, and either is fine. The food is excellent, from the rosemary-infused dipping oil to the pastas, fish and fresh sorbets. But by far the best dish is the tortellini - it is prepared in a tomato cream sauce with sea scallops and shrimp. The portion is very generous, and... More

Jacaranda has a great happy hour. Hors d'oeuvres are half price and drafts are 2 for 1. They also have live music later in the evening.

This was a perfect restaurant and the best we ate at during our vacation to Sanibel island. The stuffed grouper was very fresh and cooked to perfection. The sesame encrusted tuna was very flavorful. The kids menu was adequate for our two kids. The key lime pie and cremebrule were awesome!!! Not only was the food but our server Dylan... More

Excellent service. We missed happy hour, but we heard that it's excellent. 5-7pm discounted drinks and apps. I've heard it's the best night life on the island. But we did not stay after dinner.

Food was good and service was great. It wasn't crowded so there was no waiting. We are on the screened in porch. It was not what we expected for an expensive restaurant. We essentially sat at a plastic table and chairs. The food was good but prices were high. Recommend for a special occasion while on vacation. But there are... More

Went here with friends for New Years Eve. They were super busy but seated us immediately. Our server Joe M. was acting a little strange, he seemed to be distracted but otherwise the service was attentive and prompt. The wine list is eclectic and complete. Everyone enjoyed their food I would recommend the crab cakes. Overall an enjoyable evening.
