What a great, interesting,happening place in Sarasota. This Peruvian (influenced?) restaurant features great service and amazingly fresh ingredients. The ceviche was unlike anything I had tried before - the Triologia sampler is a great way to experience several varieties / and the skirt steak, one of their specialties, was better than any skirt steak I have had previously - and...

The Selva Grill is still fresh. The menu changes are always nice. A nice night out for dinner on Main Street. Not too many tourists!

This was our first time at Selva Grill ... we were not disappointed ... and will be going back. There are so many very good restaurants in the Sarasota area so for Foodies like us, having too many choices is a nice problem. Selva Grill has an upbeat feel with nice background music, interesting coloring and art on the walls... More

My husband and I decided to go to dinner here after hearing several recommendations from locals. The atmosphere here is very nice, dimmed lights , very sleek. After asking our server for recommendations we ordered the crab cake appetizer to start.. The crab cake appetizer was delicious, the flavors were intense and fresh and it consisted of very little filler,... More

When my meal came to the table, I realized that I was in for a real treat. The presentation was something that one would expect to see in a high end restaurant in a major city. I cannot say enough about how delicious my meal was tonight. The paela that I ordered was absolutely the best I ever had the... More

We have been twice. It is very noisy so don't go with people who have trouble hearing. The food both times has been great. We had the paella and the seafood duo. Happy hour in the bar has good deals on beer and house special cocktails (but no margaritas on the special menu). Service is quick so good for pre... More

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
