I ventured out to the Key after many years away and discovered this little gem. First, the service was wonderful-- Tess, Hannah, and all the other girls were attentive, friendly, and capable.
The food was dynamite. Lots of fresh fish,civiche, a sweet pea risotto was a highlight, along side a perfectly cooked tuna steak and some tapas-style appetizers. Hannah makes one of the best Bloody Marys I've had in a while, and out back there's a cute patio.
I rarely gush (you can see my other reviews) but considering that despite the turnover and number of restaurants in SRQ the restaurant scene is a bit vapid, The Cottage on Siesta was a pleasant surprise.
