Fun Happy Hour

While we usually dine in the restaurant, last night we took advantage of the happy hour in the bar. Great happy hour specials, and live piano music made for a lively and fun evening. We treated ourselves to a variety of small plates Food is excellent, as always. The service is top notch.

We enjoyed our meal tonight. The scallops were perfectly done and the chicken was excellent. I enjoyed the tender pot roast reconstructed, which was super moist and the gravy was excellent. Service was perfect and we will be back. The set menu was perfect. The salads were well done, artichokes were perfect. Deserts were a good size. A great deal... More

If you are looking for a good lunch in a quiet setting with attentive service, this is it. I use this place for business meetings and catch-up social luncheons with friends - especially in the southern end of SRQ county. The half sandwich and cup of soup has never disappointed me.

We recently went to Mattison's 41 on a Friday night for our wedding anniversary. I had the duck and my wife had the savor Sarasota menu with calamari, pot roast, and chocolate espresso torte. Everything was excellent! Some of the best we've had. Our waitress was Courtney. She was very pleasant, informative, and patient. We would ask for her again... 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
