Latitudes has been around a year or so and my wife and I have seen it often from the water as we cruise the canals around the intracoastal. So we finally went there for dinner last week. Parking was easy and free (!). The restaurant is on the 3rd floor so there's a stair climb or elevator. The restaurant is small-ish but very "real". Not overly decorated with Florida kitsch, very open and bright. There are two outside balcony eating areas, again, small-ish, but cozy. Both face the interior marina and intracoastal (nice view!), but the north balcony allows some gulf views as well (sort of). Portions of both are covered, with the remainder open, so you can sun or shade. The menu is diverse enough to satisfy most folks. Their wine selection is small but well thought out. I was happy to see a good Pinot Noir there which many places wouldn't have at all, or would have a cheap version. Prices are a bit steep but the food is excellent (and isn't that why you go?). I had the grilled tuna with veggies and a glass of pinot noir. The tuna was a good size and cooked EXACTLY how I asked for it (between medium rare and medium. I'm picky.). The veggies were a great mix of steamed zucchini, yellow squash, and other things that all blended very well together. My wife had the grouper special with rice and veggies and a glass of merlot. Her fish was a little on the small side but it was well cooked and very tasty. She finished her plate, I had to take some of mine home! I can't find the receipt but I believe, all told, with 2 pre-dinner glasses of wine, 2 glasses with dinner and the dinners themselves, the total came to $54, with tip added after that. We'll definitely go back when we want high quality food and wine with a view!
