Another Good Find!

We called our regular hangout, Marcello's, and they were busy, so we stopped in here. What a pleasant surprise. It was a Tuesday night and wasn't very busy in the dining room, but the bar was packed. Looks like a local hot spot. It was about 8pm and we were one of the only tables in the dining... read more

This place is absolutely amazing! The food is out of this world. I had the Steak Blue and Oreo Cheesecake. They were both perfect! We also had a great server named Mae. If you can request her, she's the one you want! We never once had to ask for anything. This was the best experience we've had in a long... More

In the past 6 months we've been here for dinner and for Easter and Mother's Day brunches. Food and service are always the best. Menus are usually a mix of old standards and unique new items. Brunches are buffet style and sumptuous, with a wide variety of hot breakfast and lunch entrees, fresh fruit, pastries, and desserts. We like this... More

I've been here in the past for dinners and for Mother's Day brunch buffet and the food was always very good. Especially the brunch. However, this time around, the food was barely ok. First, the service. My favorite server works here but we were not seated in her section. If she was serving our table, the experience might have been... More

Hard to find a better meal in Sarasota, or anywhere. Interesting and creative American cuisine from Chef Paul, excellent wine selection, classy light entertainment.

We can't express our thanks to Heide, who helped us to celebrate our daughters wedding with a superb catering experience. The food was fabulous, the staff was professional. We want to thank Paul for attending and assisting to make sure everything went well. We are happy to finally found a resturant and catering company we can rely on every time.

We have eaten here every year since 2009 for Mother's Day and have always had a great experience, albeit pricey. This year will be our last time dining here with our party. The food was average at best with a few standout items (Prime rib, omelets, and crepes). The biggest problem was the changes that have occurred this year that... More

I was surprised that fish tacos were the special, but, then again, it was Cinco de Mayo -- so a Mexican favorite was a logical choice. The fish was grouper + swordfish, and it was accompanied by pico de gallo and sour cream. Darn tasty...and, OLE!

My husband took my family and me to Mattison's 41, my favorite Sarasota restaurant, to celebrate my 65th birthday. Tonight's celebration didn't disappoint. Helena was an exceptional waitress and really made me feel special. My family, who had not been to Mattison's 41 before, raved about the service, the food and the ambiance. Thank you Mattison's 41 for a wonderful... More
