Description: Nestled in Siesta Key Village, The Cottage is a casual and quaint, old Florida beach house with a menu that will never disappoint. Our fusion cuisine appeals to locals and globe trekkers alike with Latin American, Asian and Hawaiian influences. We offer indoor dining and two options for outdoor seating--a front patio that overlooks The Siesta Key Village, and a garden-setting back patio with live music nightly 7pm-close. Happy Hour runs Monday - Friday from 11:00am-6:00pm. Late Night Happy Hour offered Friday and Saturday evenings from 10pm to 1am. Known for attention to fine food, lovely cocktails and great service, The Cottage has quickly become everything that is raved about on TripAdvisor and more.

Tried the cottage after reading reviews and it was great. The service was good and the back patio had a great atmosphere. The lobster bisque was amazing. A few of us had the filet which was very good and the short ribs were also good. Our whole group enjoyed the dinner and we hope to have a chance to go again.

This was the third place we ate during happy hour. We walked up and were seated promptly. Alyssa was our server and she was good. I ordered the truffle cheese burger and it was very good. I did make the mistake of asking for it to be well done. I expected it to be charred and rubbery but it wasn't. It wasn't as juicy as it would have been had I ordered medium but that was my mistake not theirs. It took about 30 minutes for our food to be served but the well done burger contributed to the delay. One of the margaritas appeared to be watery. The second was better. Compared to it's neighbors the Blue Q and the Hub, the Cottage was a better find.

We wanted to try The Cottage as it was rated #2 on Siesta Key. We sat on the back patio which was nice but it had a bit of a trash odor. The food was decent. We had about 7 tapas plates. For the price they were pretty expensive for the quality. The crab sliders were very dry. The best thing we ordered was the tuna tacos, those are the one thing I would order again. Our cocktails were so watery they did not taste like there was any alcohol in them at all. We even sent one back because tasted just like water. We were sadly disappointed in the Cottage.

Ate at the Cottage last night and the restaurant was very busy and had a great feel to it. From the host to the service staff to the manager was very impressed! And the food was incredible. Simply the best meal my family has enjoyed out here.

Not impressed. We waited a long time and when we were seated the waiter thought we just claimed a table! Sent an appitizer back twice. Lobster bisque was great! Better places to spend your time in the village!
