My husband and I came here after we saw the amazing reviews, and the front desk at The Sandpearl recommended it. We had reservations for I believe 7:15-7:30. We left a note on Open Table that we were celebrating and would like a nice table. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant, in between two tables of family's,... More

I’ll be direct. If you want a detailed review of the food and wine offerings at the Cesare's at the Beach restaurant in Clearwater Beach, please look elsewhere in these reviews. This review is focused more on the restaurant’s pricing and location (and inherent parking challenges) because at Cesare’s you’re paying for, and dealing with, location-location-location, in my opinion. First... More

Went here for valentine's day and have been a few times before. Place is delicious and the staff is great. It's a nice romantic reservation, not loud and provides a nice ambiance. Plenty of options to choose from. Be sure to make a reservation especially on Fri. Or Sat. And anytime during spring/summer season.

The view is so so - just north of Sand Key bridge. Little strip mall with outdoor seating Kitchen us small so be patient but food is worth it. Seafood and pasta were delicious. The kids were thrilled too although no burgers, pizza or hot dogs (thank you) Their best Chianti was a wonderful Ruffinio - almost worth the visit... More

We were here for our anniversary. I found a Groupon and based on reviews decided to try. Wow! The food was outstanding! The service was impeccable! I had the Pollo Cesare, yum! My hubby had gnocchi and they were perfect! It is pricey but hey with a Groupon totally worth it! Make a reservation. I too was surprised by the... More

We made reservations for our Sunday night dinner on Open Table, which is recommended but not required. Upon arrival, we were seated right away. We enjoyed the perfectly cooked escargot, but missed the bread/cracker accompaniment that we are used to. Hubby enjoyed the pasta trio which include 2 types of ravioli and a pasta with vodka sauce. My lasagna was... More
