“Good but needs improving”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

We went to Dean's and both ordered the filet mignon. I ordered mine medium and my husband medium rare. Both came out medium well. Sadly, the meat was a nice cut and was ruined by the preparation. The au gratin potatoes were also served cold. No one came back to check on us and at the end of the evening when we told the hostess the meal was less than great; she said we should have told them, but that would mean we'd have to flag down our waitress and that wasn't happening. She then told us that they had a rush - there were only 2 tables seated when we arrived, one left and one more came in, so I don't know if they consider that a rush or not, but cold food is not acceptable. I do think I would give them another shot and express up front that I would want the meat cooked properly and the sides should be served hot.

“Delicious and Enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We visit St. Maarten every year in November for a couple of weeks and are very familiar with many of the restaurants on the island. We went to Dean's Seafood and Steakhouse when it first opened in November 2013 at the recommendation of a someone who is from and lives on the island. We can't say enough about the food and the service. The food ranks with the best of the island's restaurants; portions were very generous; and the price was reasonable (especially for expensive St. Maarten)! Service was very gracious and friendly. We met Dino while we were in the restaurant and told him how much we enjoyed the restaurant. Everyone should patronize this very nice restaurant...we hope this one lasts! C&C

“big disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We got there early....5:30 on Friday, so that we could enjoy happy hour. We were the only ones there except for the waiter, cook and bartender. I inquired about the price of the lobster..."sorry, the tank is broken so we don't have any lobster !!!!!!!!" Ok...we'll start with appetizers.calamari please...."sorry we are out of calamari." We opted for the crab stuffed mushrooms, which were delicious, and then decided we would go elsewhere for dinner. What a shame...it is a beautiful place, but the menu ( or lack there of) needs to be revamped!!!!!!!!!
