We had wonderful dinners of Sea Bass and Swordfish. The dining rooms were cozy and the staff was excellent - the waiters/waitresses work as a team, so you get twice the attention. Highly recommended!

Had an awesome dinner this past Monday night, certainly not cheap, was well worth it. Great ambiance, service, and outstanding food. We were taken care of byTania, very attentive, but not in your face. We always like to take our time & enjoy our wine before ordering, didn't feel rushed here. Highly recommend Sanibel Steak House.

For the dinner of a lifetime, you MUST visit the Sanibel Steak House. Husband and I each had Surf and Turf (lobster tail and steak dinner) which was absolutely 2DIE4 ... and believe me, we don't say that lightly. SPECTACULAR service, SPECTACULAR dinners .... and, of course, a spectacular BILL ~!~~~~ but worth every penny and we'd do it again in a heartbeat.

For above mentioned heavenly dinner, expect to pay nearly $200 (including tip and a couple of cocktails) for 2 people.

We ordered the Tuna Sashimi and Beef Carpaccio appetizers and the Lamb Chops in a Fig demi-glace and Kobe Strip Steak (one of that day's specials) entrees. For dessert we ordered Creme Brulee and Bread Pudding with creme anglaise (also one of that day's specials).

The Tuna and Carpaccio were excellent. The Lamb was very tasty but the demi-glace detracted from the dish. The Kobe beef was very tender and tasty, prepared as I ordered it (rare) but it, didn't taste different from conventional prime beef. I learned later that the Kobe served is the American breed; not the Japanese breed; I would not order it again as it is more expensive and tastes the same.

We were seated at a table for two that felt like it was wedged into the dining area; I had to pull my elbows in whenever a server passed our table.

Both desserts were excellent, the Bread Pudding was a real treat.

Prices were typical steak-house. We would return again for a good steak but with reservations for better seating.
