We had an absolutely amazing experience at Island View! Once you get up the elevator it's very classy and the manager, Chris, was very kind and accommodating even though we didn't have a reservation. Our server Kris was also very attentive and warm. It was my birthday and the restaurant provided me with a free small champagne bottle and a free desert! The live singer also sang me happy birthday. It was so much fun and the food was delicious. We ordered a salad and our entrees came with salads and soups, and we also were provided with delicious warm bread with cheese stuffed in it. Vodka pasta was a 10/10! Everyone was so nice and checked in on us several times. Beautiful views and not too loud or dark in the restaurant. I will definitely be going back 👏🏻
This restaurant is located on the 6th floor of the Lani Kai Resort. We were in the outdoor section by the bar. Parking is not free. The parking attendant, an older bald, heavy set man, is pretty gruff and does not appear to like his job. He was yelling at people constantly. He even yelled at our Lyft driver for wanting to drop us off closer to the elevator as I have a disability. We took a Lyft over here. In order to get to the restaurant part, you need to go up an old elevator that holds 6 people, go through a loud, rowdy bar and then you get to the outdoor seating. Even though we called early in the morning to reserve the swinging table next to the view, and were promised it, they said they did not receive our reservation and it was made for another indoor restaurant up there! So then we had to speak to the manager, 2 servers and finally after waiting for other diners to leave, we were able to get the table we requested in the morning. We ordered Crab Cakes, which tasted mediocre and Clam Strips with fries. Nothing special. Our main reason for going there was to catch the Sunset, which they advertise. And we did get to see it. Just don't expect much and you will be happy if you get the view tables. The entire place needs remodeling badly. No one was wearing a mask that we could see..neither staff nor customers.
Amazing views in air conditioned area. We sat at the bar so we could see the gulf and it was great. Top notch staff and the musician was playing chill island vibe music. We had the octopus.
What a hidden gem on Fort Myers Beach! We ordered the Mussels for an app and they were absolutely amazing! Fresh and delicious!! Our meals were perfect, our Server Stephanie was helpful and prompt, and the Manager Sean brought us the most delicious dinner rolls we have ever tasted - butter and Parmesan outside and cream cheese inside!! YUM!!! We cannot recommend the Island View highly enough!!
Nice little breeze with a view and a lot of selections on the menu. I would definitely go back again. The service was good and live music.
