Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous! The chef and his wife own and operate this wonderful restaurant. They have an incredible menu. The only thing better than the menu is the actual food itself. The chef is world class. The wait staff is top drawer. No need or desire is missed. You will come away satisfied. PS The wine list is exceptional.

The atmosphere is elegant, but understated. The service is impeccable and the food is exquisite! One of the best restaurants in the area and that is saying a lot.

Perfectly beautiful restaurant, quiet atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food. In addition to all that, one can actually have a conversation without shouting in order to be heard.

Quaint dining with wonderful food and atmosphere! Enjoyed a glass of champagne with beef carpaccio while waiting on fish entree. All three diners loved the meal and dessert! Will go back every time we visit Longboat Key!

Driving up to the restaurant you may be a little concerned at the resort it is located in and question whether this will be a true fine dining experience. Once inside the ambiance changes to urban chic. The service was excellent. We had the lump crab appetizer which was very light and refreshing. Next I had the Suckling Pig which... More

If you've been to Bouley and Jean Georges in New York, the Maison Blanche is in a similar category but with less courses. The quality is there but we left looking for more desserts.
