I always chose to come to this restaurant for my Birthday as the food and staff are excellent. The Shrimp starter with Asian salad is to die for and worth every penny. All of the food is well presented and tastes delicious. The staff are very courteous and friendly (also great with young children). A perfect menu at a perfect... More

This place is by far the best restaurant that I have had in this area. We live in Sarasota and come down about once every two months. This month we have come 4 times! We just devour the Truffle Fries" and the Oysters! Yum Yum! I would like to add that with the food and beverage being outstanding and the... More

I love Pink Elephant. I have been a regular, in and off season, since 1999. I celebrated birthdays there, listened to fishing tales, had girls night outs, date dinners, and watched my kids grow from high chairs into "Itrain" addicts. It is a safe outing for good food, quick service and strong drinks. Pink is a perfect opposition to bright,... More

Shanice was our server for this meal. I must say she was one of the best servers we had on the Island. She is very attentive and familiar with the menu and products. The beef brisket made my husbands mouth water. It was tasty and tender. Large portion. The fish tacos were some of the best I have had anywhere.... More

We went there after a day of sailing. The AC was great! The interior was dark, but the front windows let a good amount of light in the place. I ordered a pink mojito, delicious French fries, and the Asian salad. All of the food was good, but it didn't justify the prices.

Excellent food. There is a casual floor and more "refined" floor. The fancier floor has great service and very good food.

First of all the inside of a The a Pink is dark. Second the menu was not what I was expecting in Boca Grande. I don't think that grouper was even on the menu. My husband ordered the brisket which was horrible (he said). I ordered the salad with blue cheese and tuna. It was delicious. Give it a try... More

I would like to begin this review by saying all of our previous visits to the Pink Elephant were very enjoyable. We chose this restaurant for our wedding dinner because of these previous positive experiences. Not sure what happened on the evening of our wedding but we did not experience our usual level service. We went to the Pink Elephant... More

We had lunch here shortly after checking into the inn this past April.It was a great place to kick off a two night stay on lovely Gasparilla Island!! Sitting on the patio in the warm sunshine sipping wine and enjoying a delicious meal was just what we needed! We returned that same night to try out their dessert menu (ice... More

We've been to this restaurant a few times, and usually like to have a couple drinks at the bar on a lazy Sunday. In the past, the food has always been good and the service impeccable. This last time we went, the chicken wings must have been microwaved forever, as they were tough and stringy. The shrimp were soft and... More
