Any type of dining at the beautiful Don Cesar Hotel would have felt special, but the Maritana exceeded my expectations. The renovations are so beautiful. Service is wonderful, everyone is helpful and knowledgeable (Thank you Don). I had the tuna tartare - so memorable and excellent. Fresh oysters were great. Followed by the Butter Poached Maine Lobster. One of our party had the halibut and said it almost brought tears to his eyes. Crazy. Dessert was nothing I have ever had before and incredible. We were in town for the Indy Car race and will definitely return.

Service was excellent and the wines were a very good selection. The menu selection is very light but the filet and corvair were excellent choices. Very expensive.

We expected a lot and were not disappointed. Food and presentation were excellent. It isn't cheap but for $135 per person including drinks, wine and gratuity, we all felt we got our money's worth. Service was attentive but not overbearing. All felt like their choice of food was delicious. If there was anything to criticize, it might be the noise of the restaurant. It was loud enough that I could not hear what one of our group was saying and she was sitting one chair away. Not a big deal, though. All in all, a good choice for a fine dining experience.

Lamb chops appetizer was awesome. New take on lamb chops and that rub and sauce just goes with nice freshness added by the apple squares. The filet mignon perfect bite is with that quail egg on top. I would take 7 more of those quail eggs on that plate, just yum! The ambiance and service on point. Jess, the server was awesome. Great wine pairings and suggestions, fast and perfect service. Definitely would be back soon to try other menu items.
