Pros: -The food. Everything was delicious. Cesar salad was wonderful. Lobster pasta was one of the best meals I've ever had. Huge chunks of lobster and homemade pasta did not disappoint. -The service. We had a waiter named Jesse and he took awesome care of us. -The atmosphere. It was really nicely decorated, and the hotel itself is beautiful. Cons:... More

Nice place to have dinner if you are staying in the hotel. We made reservation well in advance of our arrival. I requested a special table and our server Raymond took great care of us throughout the evening. He went out of his way in search of a special tonic for my husband's gin and tonic. My husband had Oysters... More

My husband and I had a lovely anniversary dinner here. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. The presentation was fabulous as well. Each dish was a work of art. The chocolate egg dessert was DELICIOUS. If you eat here, you cannot skip that dessert. The dishes are pricey for the portions. Other than that, everything was fabulous.

This is our go-to romantic spot in St. Pete! For a special occasion, The Maritana Grille is worth every penny. The food is decadent yet satisfying and the service is top notch. We eat here at least once whenever we take a "staycation" at the Don Cesar. A great reason to put on your Sunday best and fill your belly... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a reservation here and I was amazed at the food & service. We had the privilege of having "Janet from another planet" as our server and enjoyed every second! She was attentive and so very sweet. We had the ahi app, seabass and lobster entrées; however, the best part was the desserts! I had the... More

We had a group of 10 for a birthday dinner celebration and received excellent customer service with a great atmosphere! We brought our own cake which they cut up and served to us. Everyone ordered a different entrée and we shared appetizers. All the dishes were delicious:). I can't wait to go back!

For starters...I think our server, Janet, had more fun than we did. She really made our meal an experience. We weren't incredibly hungry, so we shared the stone crab claw appetizer (just as good as Joe's Stone Crab...Dijonaisse and all). We also shared an entree...the Cobia. My wife is a big fish fan...but I very rarely order fish in a... More

Hotel is gorgeous...restaurant is very nice..speed of service and food delivery both fine, we were not rushed. The 'breads' plate with sea salt butter was yummy, as was the one-bite 'taster' of the evening (ours was bruschetta w/ farm cheese and house made pepper jam..very tasty morsel). I had the "wedge" type salad..very good, a little pricey at $18. My... More

We had a delicious dinner, Jess, our server was one of the best servers we have had. We had the Delmonico for our main dish and it was mouthwatering! In addition, the rest of the staff was top notch as well. Great experience.

While the service was excellent, the chef needs to up his/her game for this restaurant to earn its reputation. I had the sea bass, and it was a bit undercooked and lacking in flavor. Nice atmosphere, and the bar service was very good.
