“A real foodie experience (but affordable)”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

This was a very interactive experience between the chef, the table and the waiter (Michael). The had a special and a couple standards which the chef offers to cook a variety of ways to suit you. Our table ordered veal, duck, steak and Chilean sea bass (which I haven't seen on a menu in years.) Salads, were great, bread is yummy, cocktails are fine, entrees are loved and slaved over happily slaved over. Service by Michael was out of this world. We almost could not tell about dessert because we were too stuffed to experience it. The atmosphere in a mall is lacking, but that keeps the prices low. Apps are $9 or $10 and entrees run in the 20's. So go enjoy, and stagger out of there....

“Wonderful Restaurant”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

My husband, son and I were on our way to Sanibel and stopped at the Publix plaza. We stopped in at the restaurant ...we had a excellent meal. Service was great and staff were very nice and friendly. Looking forward to stopping on our next visit to Sanibel.

“Just average”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 via mobile

From the escargot appetizer to the Caesar salad and veal piccata, all was just average. Lacking on flavor, I will not return.

“Excellent chef/restaurant returns to Ft. Myers area”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Chef Dale started at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Ft. Myers, then opened his own place nearby, then moved to be part of the Holiday Inn on Sanibel Island. We did not go to the Holiday Inn as the atmosphere was "motel-ish" and too far to go. We were delighted to see he opened his new restaurant on Summerlin Rd. in Ft. Myers. We ate there 3 times in 12 days during our recent trip to Ft. Myers. The food is creative, perfectly prepared, and served with a tantalizing presentation. We had the special Sea Bass with crab and hollandaise on our last visit and it was perfect. The desserts are home made, and this night Dale created cheese blintzes filled with ricotta and a lemony sauce that made us want to lick our plates. One of us had the filet (2x) and it was also perfectly prepared. These people know what they are doing and do it extremely well. Dale's son is a waiter and his wife is the hostess and both are warm and friendly and make the dining experience even better. We winter in Ft. Myers for 4 months and this will be one of our regular stops weekly. We also did a Sunday brunch which offered the same innovative food perfectly prepared and presented. They take reservations, which will be important from Nov.-April. The strawberry shortcake is made with homemade pound cake and is better than sex! Enjoy.

“A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Courtney's Restaurant truly impressed me and I am hard to please. Beautiful atmosphere, polished wood bar, and gorgeous wood carvings decorate the cozy space. The food was delectable, tastefully seasoned and cooked perfectly. The staff was pleasant and helpful. No complaints, I will definitely be returning to Courtney's.
