the worst thing i can say about the Hatter is the room was on the small side; everything else was excellent. The gracious hostess squeezed us in at sunset -- we had no reservation, both of us in ripped jeans, and they treated us wonderfully. Fantastic waiter and servers, pricey food well worth the $ in taste and presentation. And after the sun goes down, walk just behind the restaurant for the most romantic spot looking out over the Gulf (or up at the stars). Highly recommended.

Here's what we had: Tapenade & fluffy butter on ciabata, a tasty amuse bouche from the chef of crab leg vinegrette, blackened grouper with asparagus risotto, beets, mushrooms; beef filet (super) with gratinee potatoes (which were disappointing for lack of tastiness), roasted beets & mushrooms, great. We had the sampler dessert: Death by Chocolate, Drunken Ice Cream
(probably the best I've ever had), Creme Brulee with espresso (not my fave).
Excellent service. Since we dined after sunset, we did not see their great view of the Gulf.
I look forward to returning.

Fantastic meal,one of the best servers we have ever encountered! The space itself is somewhat dated but who cares when the food and service make up for it. Dessert was Drunken Ice Cream fantastic ,had red wine reduction. they gave us each a complementary glass of moscato wine! Nice touch!! We throughly enjoyed our dining experience. Best we had while on Sanibel and Captiva!

the food was very expensive and no place to park. Expect to spend over $120.00 not including wine for a couple. Service was good.

A lovely view of sunset, from our table. We both had the lamb....it was awesome. Very romantic spot...have had duck on past visits also good. They do it very well from service to yummy meal.
