Caretta on the Gulf at the Sandpearl Resort Ratings and Reviews
We are locals who have heard good reviews from friends, so we thought we'd treat ourselves for our anniversary & looked forward to getting dressed up for a rare night out without the kids. Unfortunately, other than our few very expensive cocktails, we were very disappointed. My husband got the filet and I got the snapper, but to be honest they were not good. We make much better steak & fish at home. Next time, we'll send kids to the grandparents, make our own dinner & save $200! 😒👎
Always enjoy my dinner here. Excellent filet dish. Always perfect. We had a beautiful table outside with amazing views. Michelle was our waitress and she was absolutely amazing. It was here birthday and we were honored to have her serve us. Always 5 star experience here.
Modern, clean lines decor, the restaurant offered a spectacular sunset on the Gulf of Mexico. That ambiance sky rocketed at the first sip of a Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon. I ordered a plate of a delightful carpaccio well suited with other condiments. Then came the main course which was two pieces of pork with an exquisite sauce that was just the best combination for it! That was absolutely revealing. I had the courage to order something I usually don't order: a strawberry cake, with other layer of fruit jelly. With a zesty sauce that accompanied that, I could feel the flavor jumping in my mouth.
I absolutely recommend that place for myself to go back to Clearwater and to SandPearl, but also for whoever has the chance to go there.
Not what it use to be, I have great memories of this place. Amuse bouche and bread arrived after the starters. Waiter seemed half hearted. My fillet steak was tasteless, lacked seasoning. The only people happy with their food were the children.
The decor was dated and the restaurant was too dark.
Most expensive meal in Clearwater and the worse one. I will remember it this time for the wrong reasons. Come on Sandpearl management, your restaurant is letting the hotel down.
Einfach ein gelungener Abend, bei dem alles stimmte. Wir werden sehr gerne wiederkommen. Das Restaurant wird seinem hohen Anspruch mehr als gerecht.
Gekrönt wurde es noch durch den beeindruckenden Sonnenuntergang, welchen wir bei hervorragenden Essen von der Terrasse beobachten konnten.
Sehr aufmerksames und geschultes Personal.
I've been spending my summers in Clearwater, Florida since I was a baby with my family. Now in my late twenties, I've seen the main strip grow and have always wanted to try a higher end restaurant with someone special. This year I got to bring my fiance along and we wanted to have a really special date night. Caretta on the Gulf was the perfect getaway. The location was stunning (we had reservations at sunset), the food was amazing and our server Dane was so genuine when discussing what our menu options were. This is will definitely be one of our go-to date nights the next time we are back in town.
We were in Clearwater for our 35th Wedding Anniversary Weekend and Caretta's made our dinner celebration fantastic. Mike, our waiter suggested the Chilean Sea Bass and it was melt in your mouth good. Everything from appetizers to dessert was simply outstanding. Thanks for an awesome evening Caretta's. We will return for sure next time we are on the West Coast again. Regards......Erik H.
We loved our night here. First my wife and i were greeted by our waiter, chris, and he was very curtious and prompt throughout the whole night. Food was cooked just as we asked, and had great flavor. Atmosphere was comfortable, and elegant. Very good overall.
I have been to Caretta on the Gulf several times and I have never been disappointed. The food changes seasonally emphasizing local availability. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding, the ambiance is perfect for a romantic or family dinner. Tables are arranged so that every diner has a great view of the Gulf of Mexico and sunset is quite spectacular.
My wife and I have some complicated food restrictions and our server and the chef handled our needs beautifully.
If you are visiting Tampa Bay and you only have time to dine at one fine-dining restaurant, I recommend that you choose Caretta's.
The scenery was beautiful. The food was good, seafood and steak mainly. We loved the desserts we ordered. The meat was not cooked as we ordered but still ok. Maybe the seafood dishes would have been better. The server, hostess, valet assistant were all very friendly.
