After reading the reviews I was expecting a Michlin starred restaurant on LBK. We have visited several Michlin restaurants in Paris, San Fran, and NYC. Maison Blanche restaurant was very good but not at that level. The menu is very limited, and appetizer specials from the prix fix menu were not available ala cart. my wife and I both ordered...

Our dinners at Maison Blanche were excellent, equal to those we've had at other Michelin-starred restaurants in France. In fact, the set up is very French, with madame overseeing the dining room and monsieur the kitchen. A 3-course dinner is $65--or a diner may order a la carte--pricey, but not exceedingly so given the quality of the cuisine. As is... More

A Small gem of a french restaurant on long Boat Key Sarasota. Food is high quality and wonderfully presented. A really good wine list and champagne if you prefer. It is quite pricy but for special occassions a wonderful place to dine. Igt is our Anniversary and Birthday choice.

If you are looking for food of the quality generally found in New York, London or Chicago, Maison is for you. If you are used to Chili's and Carrabba's, this may not be for you. It's an establishment run by a husband and wife team who really care about food. The precision of each dish is amazing - everything is... More

My husband and I enjoyed the setting and cuisine of this incredible restaurant. The care in presentation and the representation of each flavor on your plate was just exquisite! The setting was calm and elegant but still relaxed and comfortable. The service was impeccable yet I never felt rushed or intruded upon. If your looking for amazing food and a... More

Six family members visited Maison Blanche December 18th. The restaurant is quite attractive. The service was impeccable as we had three people contributing service. There weren't more than two tables occupied the entire evening, which gives one the weird feeling that the place is not very popular. I'm not the first reviewer to note that. The meals themselves were fine... More

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.
