The staff was great and attentive. One of the bathrooms were down and had a long wait. Besides that... there weren't any other problems. It's an average restaurant with... More

Had the grouper sandwich, which was delicious, but you can't pass up any of the appetizers!! All fresh and delicious. Tropical backyard patio, but arrive early to be able to sit in the Backyard!

We arrived with party of 7 for dinner. We were initially seated at a tall, narrow bar table which was too tight. I requested a larger table, so we were ushered to an outdoor patio area in back. They seated us at a large, covered table that was perfect! Not sure why they didn't offer that one at the start.... More

She took the time to explain each of the dishes and how they are prepared. She is a true professional! The ambience was relaxed and quaint. The... More

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.
