From previous trips to South America, I consider Peruvian food some of the best in the world so we wanted to try Darwin's on 4th and we are very glad we did. The service, drinks, micro brewery selections and food were all very good. My dinner was one of, if not the best, duck entre I ever tasted. Darwin's overall... More

Having lived in Sarasota for over a decade now, I wonder how this place was never known to me. It's a fun place in every way, the tavern, the bar the restaurant, the entertainment, the service, and then the beer, oh yeah the "Summerdayze" a brew from the in-house microbrewery. I am actually a red wine drinker, but this brewsky... More

We visited on a Monday night for a meal with our international business guests, while the food was visually stunning we felt the main courses were a little overpriced. The server was very knowledgeable on the menu and everyone enjoyed their food, however the service was lacking given that the restaurant was nearly empty and we had one drink throughout... More

The skirt steak at this restaurant is consistently good I have eaten here several times. Also they have an excellent selection of ceviches especially the steak. They also have excellent cocktails including a really good pisco sour if you want authentic Peruvian this is it. The service is also excellent

What a gem for Sarasota! Unique, vivid Peruvian food flavors. Great change of pace from the usual run of restaurants. Beautiful building and decor with Peruvian antiques. Fun and comfortable ambiance. Occasional small music acts add a nice touch on certain nights. Interesting in-house micro brew with a variety of beer flavors, including unique Peruvian ingredients in some. Always a... More

My spouse and I had an overnight trip to Sarasota. We got rained out and had to improvised. We discovered Darwin's on 4th. It was a nice restaurant. The first part was the brewery that housed the bar and the live music and a small space for dancing. The second part is the restaurant with an opened kitchen. The entire... More

This restaurant had amazing food. We had the appetizers first (do not sit in the main dining area or they will not serve you happy hour from 5-7pm). The food was great. I will say the mojitos were not the best but everything else was....especially the pork tacos. The dinner was amazing. They accommodated my food allergies and it was... More

Dined there for the first time on our August trip to Sarasota. Liked the place as soon as we walked in. Although it was midweek the place was still busy, that did not slow down the service at the bar though. The staff were knowledgeable and very good. Went into the restaurant section and dinned on some very tasty and... More

Dawrins is one of those tucked away places that offer a surprisingly interesting menu and their own craft brews. The beer list changes often so be prepared to go more than once. Their crab cakes are tiny but the lump crab inside is wonderful. The beef dishes are the best.
