This was our first visit to Selva Grill. It was delicious! We had two different ceviches (shrimp and lobster)! Delicious! My husband had the skirt steak. It was very flavorful! I had the Chilean Sea Bass. The flavors of the dish complimented the fish perfectly! The service was perfect. It was the perfect wait between the next drink or the... More

Every dish that arrived at out table was presented beautifully and was really tasty. The crab cake was superb, and the duck entree was perfectly cooked. Would go back here in a heartbeat!

Selva has been my go to dinner spot for years. They also have a great happy hour and late night menu. Ambience is beautiful, great wine selection and the food stays consistently impressive. Try the ceviche and the spring rolls for appetizers and then go on to the skirt steak with plantains for an entree. You will not be disappointed!

We visited Selva Grill last weekend for the first time. Granted the 4th of July weekend is challenging for Sarasota restaurants, with the huge crowds in town for the boat races and fireworks. Selva Grill is near the bayfront, so of course it was mobbed. The restaurant was crowded and noisy, and the service left a lot to be desired... More
