We went on several occasions there and we had a good experience. Decided to bring friends the next time and everything was a disappointing. Tripping A/C on table, chipped carafes & glasses, lousy service and food not authentic & americanized. Food was not impressive - must have been a different cook than before. Contacted the management - waste of time... More

This is a restaurant perfect for a trip with friends-the more the merrier! I've been to the various locations numerous times and still have not sampled even half the menu. A favorite of mine is the mediteranean salad. There is something for everyone but leave room for desert. We usually move from the restaurant area and have our desert near... More

I needed a place to chill-out for a while and get some food. I was very happy with my experience at Ceviche. Dined outside and enjoyed white sangrias and interesting and delicious seafood crepes right off their Brunch menu. Many interesting offering and was had to choose. Must go back many times to try them all.

My husband and I went for Valentine's (our second trip to this restaurant). As with the first time, the food was divine... Staff was helpful in picking out the right wine. The restaurant was busy, but well run.

WE had them cater our daughters book signing affair a few months back for about 100 people and the food was good but ran out. We paid for 100 people but lots of people was not able to eat because of the shortage. The manager was more concerned with the bar tab then with the quantity of food provided. We... More

Went to Ceviche, which is located in an old historic building downtown Sarasota. It occupies 4 floors with food and beverage service. My wife and I went to the third floor which featured "Flamenco". The Musicians and Dancers were obviously Spanish (Maybe Latin American?). They played and danced just as I remembered seeing in Sevilla. They were followed by a... More

Go to Ceviche to watch the sunset then go down a level and listen to music with a drink. If you eat there, don't expect too much. Their namesake dish, ceviche, is subpar.

It was exactly what I had hoped plenty of choice on the menu right size to enjoy variety and served very efficiently . However for me the most important aspect of this restaurant was we walked in with no reservation on a Saturday night at 10 pm . Sarasota if not most of Florida except maybe Miami can be a... More
