We went downtown to get a view from the Skybar outdoor bar. The place was packed with people enjoying themselves at 5:30 - 7:00. We had front row seats for the nice sunset. The happy hour wine was only $3. The waitresses were cute in their angel costumes. It's a great place to spend time waiting for your table in one of the restaurants on the 1st or 2nd floors. We didn't eat there this time, but maybe next time. The restaurants looked inviting. Go on a warm evening. The breeze off the river can be brisk. Bring a hat if it's sunny out. Fun place to people watch and make new friends.

This new restaurant in the resurgent Fort Myers downtown area (now branded as the "River District," has been jammed with people since it opened about two months ago. There are good reasons.

First, Chef Marbin Avilez, formerly of Bayfront Bistro, has put together a menu of old favorites with a dash of new imagination. And there are some new creations, too.

He also paid special attention to wine pairing, so the moderately-priced wine selection matches up particularly well.

We've been there many times in the last two months (when we could get in) and enjoyed it. Service staff is excellent, as well.

We have dined here twice and both times my wife has had the butterfish. It has been truly outstanding!! I ordered it the second time.
We also have had drinks on the fourth floor Skybar. Beautiful view and a happening venue!!
We will be back!! Manager always checks with the customers for satisfaction.

I've been to the restaurant on 3 occasions now and feel its a hit and miss. On every occasion I would say the food is nothing to write home about.. It's average at best and for the prices it's not worth it. The atmosphere at the martini bar and sky bar are very inviting and enjoyable to have drinks at. The only reason I will not be returning is because of the staff. In general, they all seem unhappy and lacking guidance. Each time we came we have ran into crowd control issues in the lobby and no one seems to step up and organize this. I feel this establishment has a ton of potential but really needs to focus on its poor service and management.

Another place where you can spend $60 for two people, not have any drinks, have to wait and leave hungry. The dining area has tires on an assembly line to give it a unique atmosphere, after sitting there I couln't wait to leave from the tire fumes. I guess the Health Department doesn't care which is typical of Lee County government not caring about public safety.
