I have never been disappointed with this fine restaurant. The somewhat "art deco" design provides a most inviting atmosphere. I have eaten at this restaurant at least a dozen times and have never been disappointed. The menu and fine wines are always pleasing. The cuisine is as close to Paris as you'll get in the U.S. (I relocated from Manhattan...even... More

This is my favorite restaurant - worldwide. Food is simply outstanding --- fresh, different, well prepared but simple. Try the octopus - great -- not what you would expect. Meditteranean Sea Bass is great. Grilled with skin on. Everything is good. Service is excellent. We have lived around the world - Europe, Asia but this is one great restaurant.

This is a gem in a non-assuming location. Fantastic French food with a Florida flair. I plan my vacation around this restaurant!

We went to Maison Blanche to celebrate an anniversary. The food was exceptional and would make our list of best meals. But what set this restaurant apart is that the entire staff seemed committed to making sure the guests had an extraordinary experience. Can not wait to go back.

A taste of France on Longboat Key. Very good offerings on menu. A "special occasion" type of restaurant.

My wife and I made online reservations for a special occasion on a Saturday night. Small, hidden, quiet, but polite. We were greeted to an authentic French staff with simple and clean decor. They offer a great selection of wine, and a complimentary first course palate tickler. The risotto and salad were perfectly executed. World class rib eye and suckling... More

LaMaison Blanche is tucked away next to a timeshare condo on the Gulf of Mexico. Once inside, you will be awed by the elegant style created by the owners...orchids and billowing material set the mood, and then the fabulous selection of wines and the most delicious offerings of culinary delights. Expect to be there for a few hours to enjoy... More

This is a terrific place for real foodies. The servings are small but exquisite, the service is great and not overbearing , and the wine list is really good. If you are looking for "all you can eat" and a gulf view, you will be happier at a different eatery. This is a fine French restaurant with a perfectly prepared... More

This place is tucked in an old hotel but they did a great job of making you not feel like you are. They're pretty fancy so be sure to dress nice to avoid feeling uncomfortable. Their menu is what you would expect in a high scale restaurant. The fois gras the steak tartar and the suckling pig were all amazing.... More

If you appreciate well executed and delicious French food and don't mind paying the price, this is the place for you. We visit the Sarasota area three to four times a year and alway visit Maison Blanche. It is the highlight of our vacation. It is better than Danielle in NYC.
