The Island Cafe was a wonderful eating experience. We started and ended with pleasant and excellent waiters and servers. The menu is interesting with something for everyone. I had the seaford dish with wonderful shrimp, lobster, mussels and scallops. They were so fresh, large and delicious! The pasta and sauce were wonderful! My husband had the two petit filet mignons and raved about it as well as the sauce. My daughter had the stuffed chicken. She liked it but didn't give it raves. The onion soup and house salads were top notch. When in Marco Island, be sure to give this restaurant a visit. You won't be disappointed!

Easy to drive by this place due to the non-descript location but it's truly worth a visit. The food is excellent and one of the best places you're likely to find on the island. The fixed price menu was very good. Wine list could have had a few more choices but the sancerre is always a standout with seafood. I'd definitely go back again.

Island Cafe has everything I would want in a restaurant. It is small, intimate, excellent lighting for a special evening, great loyal staff, nice greeting upon arrival, superb service and excellent menu and perfectly prepared food. Everything is always wonderful, no disappointments here. Early Bird always a treat, Chef's Table exquisite, delightful regular menu. The chef is marvelous and the food continental.

We "discovered" Island Cafe last year and have become frequent visitors. The food had always been outstanding and the service is friendly and very efficient. The daily Chef's Table offering is always creative and outstanding. The location is okay but belies the gourmet food inside. The only change I would make is to expand the wine list.

Wife had the prix fixe veal chop - very disappointing (too well done on the outside, raw on the inside). My filet was OK. The menu was innovative, but our choices didn't work out so well. Could have been an off night, but, for these prices, I'll go to Verdi's twice instead.
