Amazing food and timing was perfect for drink and food. Enjoyed our server, Madelyn. She gave us great direction on the menu and was very quick with drinks and service. The Bouillabaisse looked like a work of art ( our compliments to the chef) and tasted even better! Highly recommend!!
Made reservations for my wifes 51st Birthday. I arranged for flowers to be delivered to the table and a bottle of Champagne.
The Manager Janet was very accomodating, my server was very attentative.
AWESOME window seat with a view of the Ocean.
Highly recomend this restaurant.
We had a wonderful experience. The waiter was exceptional and very attentive. The ambiance was just what we were looking for.
Beautiful view, especially if you are seated near the windows. Our waiter was excellent - very kind and attentive. Food was good, but extremely small vegetable portions and somewhat odd preparations (salmon was served IN a broth with a very small piece of bok choy and broccolini in the broth, so it was all soaked - seemed more like a soup than an entree; pork chop was served with a large amount of fries covered in cheese and chorizo). Filet and scallops were good. We will go again and try something else - maybe ask more questions than rely on the menu description next time!
Went here to celebrate a fiftieth anniversary with relatives. Great place for a special dinner.
Took great care with one member of the party that was gluten free.
Food was Outstanding and the service was Excellent! I highly recommend it!

Food was pretty good. Portions are small. Didn't feel the menu was as varied as other places we've eaten at on Ft Myers Beach. Didn't feel it was a great value

We went to Coste to celebrate my birthday and everything was amazing. Our service was great, the view, and excellent food. Do not miss out on the Bread Pudding!
Happy Birthday Corin! We are honored that you chose to celebrate with us and glad that you had an enjoyable experience. We think the bread pudding is even better than birthday cake! Thanks for leaving us a review! Sincerely, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
Not too crowded in the actual restaurant but complex was a zoo. Decent service; food was good but not memorable. Calamari appetizer was huge but lacked flavour definition. Snapper was nice simple no sides included other than four asparagus spears and it too was on the bland side. A bit disappointed to be honest we expected more wow for the money 😩
Hello nsbirdie- Please accept our apologies for your disappointing experience. We regret that your visit was not more memorable and the food was just ok. We will review your feedback with our culinary team so that we can identify areas to improve. Thank you for taking the time to share your review, your feedback is very important to us. Sincerely, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
we reserved a table for 6pm on New Year’s eve Carol seated us at a great window table with a great view of the beach and sunset (must arrive before 5:30 to see sunset)
The appetizer was fantastic (brie with garlic cloves)
The main course (short ribs) were dry and not that great. We also got the fish with asparagus which she enjoyed
The prices were very high in our opinion but the view and service were good
We appreciated Carol seating us at a great table.
Hello Ray- We are very grateful for your feedback and suggestions. Our goal is to continually improve the manner in which we serve our guests and your review will be discussed as a team. We regret that your short ribs were not delicious and apologize for the disappointment. Thank you for dining at Cōste, it was a pleasure to have you as our guest. Sincerely, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
New Years eve at this restaurant. Service by Traci was excellent. Drinks were excellent. Short ribs and lobster carbonara were great. Fish was just a bit overcooked, but very flavorful. Brussel sprout appetizer was also wonderful.
Hello Scott- Thank you for joining us on New Year's Eve. We are thrilled to hear that Traci took good care of your table. We appreciate all your feedback about the various items you ordered and regret that you fish was not cooked perfectly. Your feedback is important and we discuss all reviews with our restaurant team so that we can continually improve. Best Regards, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
Food was excellent. We had the snapper and lobster carbonara. I was surprised how much lobster was in the carbonara. Our server Kyle was excellent. We always had what we needed. Will definitely be returning.
Hi Joseph- We are thrilled to hear that you will definitely be returning, that is the best compliment we could ever receive! It was a pleasure to have you as our guest and we are so glad your evening was enjoyable. Best Regards, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
We had planned on watching the sunset, but traffic on Ft Myers Beach was far worse than the normal mess. We called ahead and when we arrived almost an hour past our reservation time, the restaurant was still holding our table. We did catch a bit of color in the sky as we ordered. The elegant space is a welcome contrast to the beach/tiki bar vibe of most restaurants on the beach. Our party of 5 shared a few appetizers (the roasted brussel sprouts were fantastic) and each got a different entree. Everyone was quite happy with their dinner. The lobster carbonara was notable for the huge amount of lobster meat it contained. We also enjoyed the salmon, volcano scallops, bouillabaisse and short ribs. We'll definitely be heading back, but probably waiting until after "season" when the traffic on the island has died down and sunset is at a more amenable time for dinner.
Dear Guest- We are pleased that after you endured your battle with holiday traffic, you had an enjoyable evening with us. It's great to hear that your apps and entrees were all delicious. It would be a pleasure to serve you all as our guests again! Sincerely, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
Watching the sun set over the water on our first Christmas in FL was perfect. Everything here was exceptional. Our server was attentive, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was was lovely. We enjoyed being able to order half-sized salads which allowed us to also enjoy sharing the yummy calamari appetizer and dessert.

Stayed at the Diamondhead resort for the first time and was thrilled to find this amazing restaurant in the building. We enjoyed it so much the first night, we came back the day after too! Our servers Madeline and Efka were amazing.
Hello Elisabeth- We are thrilled that you found us too! Thank you for visiting Cōste, we are delighted to hear that we provided a dining experience worth coming back for. We will be sure to pass along your kind words to our team. Happy New Year! Sincerely, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
The Bengals football game in the bar with beer cheese and pretzels was fantastic. The salmon after with our reservations was not bad either. The service all around was just great.
Thanks for choosing Cōste, it was a pleasure to have you as our guest! We're happy to hear you enjoyed the service and apps while you watched the game. I'm sure the Bengals being in first place only added to your enjoyment! Hope to have you back again soon. Sincerely, Neil Hopgood, General Manager

Food. Service and ambiance were great !
Hello Etreair- We are delighted to hear the food, service, and ambiance were all great! Thank you for sharing your feedback, we really appreciate it! Sincerely, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
This dining experience was a very pleasant surprise. Being new to the area I took a stab in the dark and we were both very pleased. I had NY strip cooked perfectly & my wife had fish. The seasonings were excellent. The sides on my steak were scalloped potatoes with caramelized onion cooked perfectly. The dessert were tasty too and my wife’s dessert was free due ti celebrating her birthday!
Service from server Tracey was excellent. The only wish I had is to arrive during sunset, the Nicely appointed restaurant is right on the water. Unfortunately it was dark & all we could see is sand.
We had 1 wine, two desserts, and a soda. Our bill was $105, far better than the same price I paid for a cheesy dinner inland in Naples restaurant.
Hi Foster- Thank you for joining us for dinner, we are glad your wife's birthday celebration was pleasant! We will be sure to pass along your compliment to Tracey. Your feedback is so meaningful to us and we are thankful you took the time to share it. We enjoyed the opportunity to have you as our guest! Sincerely, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
Service was excellent. Food over priced for quality. Calamari extremely salty, crab cakes mushy. Salads good.
Hello Stephanie- Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We apologize that your food was subpar and we hope that our service team was given the opportunity to make things right.

Cote was excellent in every way, from being sated near a window to watch a spectacular sunset! Our waitress Tracy was excellent! The clam chowder was a perfect stater served with fluffy yeast rolls. I normally would order seafood but chose the Frenched Chicken instead. It was beautifully presented on a scoop of rice with asparagus spears, topped with the chicken and a light beurre blanc sauce, garnished with kiwi and greens. Perfection! My husband chose the lobster pasta and again, perfect in every way!
We finished with Key Lime Pie, the best we have had on this trip. I highly recommend Cote and we will return!
Hello KSFoodie- We are so pleased to read your review and glad that you and your husband had such an excellent experience. Key Lime Pie is pretty common in our area so to hear that ours was the best is such a tremendous compliment. Thank you for taking the time to share this, it really means a lot to us! Best Regards, Neil Hopgood, General Manager
We had the most amazing dinner. Mark was a great server and went above and beyond. The Bouillabaisse and Lobster Carbonara were really good. Beautiful views of the sunset and live music. It’s a must if you’re in the area.

What an outstanding dinner! Our first time at Coste and it couldn't have been any better. From the outstanding wait staff, to the absolutley delicious food and drinks, everything was perfect. And to top it off... the view at sunset is amazingly beautiful. Our dinner for 4 people consisted of Island Chowder, Baby Beet & Goat Cheese & Caesar salads, Seame glazed salmon, bouillabaisse, crab claws. Delicious. You must try.

Coste is a wonderful place to dine, with stunning views, comfortable chairs, a great Happy Hour and excellent service. It is pricey, but no more than other fine restaurants. It’s got to be the cleanest restaurant on the beach! Service was excellent as well. The appetizers are amazing!

Two years ago we treated my wife’s parents to an anniversary dinner here and had a wonderful time. Last year my mother-in-law passed away. This year we took my wife’s dad to celebrate what would have been their 70th wedding anniversary. A bitter sweet celebration. Thank you for a great meal, good service and a wonderful evening.
