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.

A couple of years ago, a friend recommended Maison Blanche to us. It had been recommended to him by a friend while he was attending a conference in Sarasota. He was wowed by the experience and urged us to try it. Before we left on our June/July vacation in Florida, I called to make a reservation. Sorry, but the restaurant... More

There is nothing like this restaurant in our area - and it probably the top restaurant in FL. Chef Martinez has incredible credentials, working with some legendary French chefs - and his technique and presentation reflect his experience. Each item is meticulously prepared, and the service is what you would expect from a high-end restaurant - and we especially enjoy... More
