We stop by Selva Grill for dinner without a reservation, and they gave us a table right away. The decoration caught our attention immediately, (the canvas are impressive). The service was very good, and the staff very professional. We had delicious Peruvian dishes, to finish with El Rey Brule for dessert that was the best chocolate dessert that I have... More

Went with my family and had a great experience. Food was amazing and well presented. but my daughter and son ordered cola and lemonade and they tasted VERY off. The restaurant was a bit dark but mainly all the light was on the mural on the wall. Overall the experience was wonderful but the food was a bit pricey.

One of my favorites in Florida. Consistantly excellent, main courses, appitizers good and some unusual, hot rolls served as you sit down, nice drinks slightly different then the ordinary Martini. Never had a bad meal, Steaks, veal, lamb, all delicious, and the peruvian dishes are wonderfull. Not to be missed when you visit Sarasota.

The food is delicious and the service was just as great! We had starters and ordered entrees as appetizers too to be able to sample more. Rack of Lamb, Spanish Caesar salad, sea bass, and ceviche are a must! Selva sundae and mousse are a great ending! Would live to go back but am on vacation :(

I am one of those people that like to go to a restaurant and try foods that I can't make or get just anywhere. Well Selva's Grill is one of those places. They have some of the most unusual offerings I have seen on a menu. They use a lot of lime and mix up a lot of there own... More

Decided to try Selva on our last night in town, and were not disappointed. The restaurant is advertised as Peruvian, but was glad to discover some of the typical dishes are infused with modern twists that exploit their flavor. Everything was very tasty and accordingly priced. Tacacho was crispy but not dry, cebiche was fresh and with just the right... More

This is by far my favorite place to go in downtown Sarasota for dinner or happy hour. The happy hour is priced very reasonable for the quality. The duck on the French baguette is mind blowing. The service has always been exceptional. The quality and creativity of the dishes are great.

The prices here are crazy! Food is good, but not worth what they charge. Don't go unless you have some kind of discount, or you'll be ripped off!

We have eaten at Selva three times since we moved to Sarasota in December 2013. It is always a pleasure to dine there. You can eat tapas style or more traditionally. The food is varied and satisfying.
