We read about this restaurant in a Magazine in our hotel and thought we would try it and we were so glad we did. The restaurant is very funky serving excellent Peruvian food, the cocktails were also superb. The dishes are beautifully presented and everything we ordered was delicious. We had a spring roll to start - it was light... More

From the time I entered the restaurant - it oozed South American (Peruvian) charm. Gas lit torches, an attentive and chic staff, beautiful decor and tables, and a hubbub of activity throughout the restaurant all added up to an exceptional evening. Our table of 7 was handled with kid gloves - our reservation assured immediate seating, our service was impeccable.... More

Professional service with a friendly attitude coupled with first class standard cuisine and an excellent selection not found anywhere else locally all together makes Selva one of, if not the, finest restaurant in Sarasota. (Not cheap though!!)

Visiting friends and they took me here. One of my friends needs gluten-free and they had and entire menu for her! There were so many ceviche choices; luckily there was a sampler so I got to try 3. All were very tasty and the presentation was stunning. Two of us had the seafood paella - such a wonderful variety and... More

Went on a Groupon to this Sarasota City Centered Eatery. Very New York sophiscated atmosphere but you can still dine casual. If you are a plain eater - Steak and Potatoes type this is not that type of place. South American with alot of unusual fusions but very well done. Pricey for Florida but worth a trip.

Selva Grill is a very stylish restaurant serving Peruvian fusion food. The dishes are so well presented it seems a shame to eat them but they are absolutely delicious. Try the ceviche!

Ate dinner here last Friday with some girlfriends, and it was unbelievable! It was a recommendation from our bartender at the Ritz Carlton. Three of the six of us had the Sea Bass and it melted in our mouth. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the service was good. One of the girls had the pork which I tried... More

We liked the ceviche and beef empanadas to share, and all of the tapas selections. The sea bass with custard flan, bok choy and black bean puree was fabulous. The beef was cooked perfectly. Our only disappointment was the desserts.

When we walked in, the atmosphere was delightful. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and shown to our table. Our server,Mario was very helpful in selecting both our wine and food. It was fun watching the beautiful plates coming from the kitchen.and wishing we'd ordered something different. However our dinners were amazing and we were very happy with... More

Parmesan Fries = Amazing Empanadas = Average Spring Rolls = Good Skirt Steak = Delicious Amazing Sirloin = Good Sauce We where five girls and ordered two entrees plus 3 additional sides and about 3 appetizers and that was more than enough. Good restaurant!
