I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday. Growing up in Florida and living near Sarasota, I just never got around to dining here. I guess the prices fit the area. Heck, Tommy Bahamas' clothes and home accessories are not affordable so why did I think the food would be? ($87.50, for one appetizer, two margeritas and two entress) excluding... More

After traveling from Orlando to Sarasota with a stop over in Clearwater, all I can say was we were hungry and tied. Checked into the Ritz Carlton and then immediately headed for our favorite restaurant. The food was tastefully prepared and the staff was took an extra few moments from the business dining room to listen to my daughter share... More

We had someone say everything was excellent while looking outside at the menu. Turned out to be excellent, nice wine list, prompt, fresh, food, live music at night and the guy was quite good Saturday Oct 11th.. 9pm.

Had some drinks and small plates at the bar, everything was amazing. Bartenders are very good and helpful. Didn't have room for desert that night so went another night for desert. Amazing!

We visited for dinner and had an outside table. I ordered roasted vegetables with chicken and my daughter had the cheese burger. The complementary bread did not arrive until after we had got our entrees ( apparently it had just come out of the oven ). At first I thought the food was good, the chicken was moist and tasty,...

Great food, great service. Try the grapefruit basil martini and ask to sit outside on the upper level. Fun and great view.

we visited this restaurant with friends for the first (and last time). It gives the impression of being "up market" hence the prices. We ordered the Cuban sandwich and fish sandwich. Both were very greasy. The next day my husband and I both had upset stomachs and felt queasy. I did not like the attitude of the waitress, who was... More

As locals we frequent this resturant 2 or 3 times a month and it's usually good. Service has and is always a tad slow but food usually good. However our most recent visit for lunch was an all round waste. The service was very bad and the chicken on the tacos and on the ceaser salad was chewy and almost... More
