This was our second visit to Maison Blanche and everything was exceptional. Martin was a wonderful server and helped with our wine selection. It was the perfect French white wine to complement our seafood dishes. I had the salmon special which was so fresh and tasty. My husband loved the herb ravioli and sea bass. The raspberry soufflé was a... More

We were party of 4 and thought they should sell wine by the glass as bottles were SO expensive that we had to choose a bottle to suit all 4 ... We would have taken 4 glasses of different wines but had to drink same wine ... We could not order a bottle each .. It was the most expensive... More

Went to celebrate our anniversary. I had the duck and my wife the scallops, both of them fantastic. The octopus appetizer was delicious. For dessert, my wife really liked the hazelnut puffs, I enjoyed the chocolate cake with raspberry sorbet. Service was very attentive without being intrusive. This place is fantastic, a most while in the Sarasota area.

Excellent dinner. I ordered the pasta w/shrimp&lobster. Yummy and a perfect serving. Hubby's crispy duck was too good as was the sautéed foie gras. Short ribs are worth ordering too. My birthday dessert was the best surprise and our server was so friendly and fell into our humor easily. Not as straight-laced as it appears. LOVED IT!

Maison Blanche is an example of the good life. It has it all: Food fit for foodies, outstanding wines, remarkable ambiance and great service. The menu is Prixe Fixe consisting of a starter, entrée and dessert. We substituted a mesclun salad for dessert which we elected to be served after our entrée. The Foie Gras terrine was smooth and full... More

My wife and I accompanied another couple to dinner here upon recommendation from the Concierge at Longboat Key Club and had an excellent meal. Two of us ordered the fixed price 3 course meal and the other two ordered a la carte. Every dish was very well prepared and extremely tasty (including the amuse bouche). Additionally, the wine list was... More

Small, expensive and elegant restaurant in an unlikely location, housed in a corner of the ground floor of a small condo building on the Longboat Key gulf side beach. Ambience, service and food (for the most part, except for slightly turned scallops) were first class.

While visiting our children, we had the pleasure of dining here. It's decor is elegant yet relaxing, the staff attentive but not overbearing, but the food was the real star. To me, a French restaurant must have fois gras, it did and was delicious. We each had something different from steak to fish to suckling pig (my choice and it... More

Everything was perfect....the food looks great, is precisely prepared and tastes even better than it looks. The atmosphere is calming, the tables well spaced and the service excellent. The wines on the list are well chosen and match nicely with the cuisine. I'll be back!
