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.

I went with a group of 6, on my birthday. Most of us had been there before, but not in a while. Truffle fries were really good. I ordered the duck, which was tasty, but not quite medium rare (more like medium). My friends had the seviche and spring rolls, that both raved about. The service was professional and timely....

We decided to hit Selva Grill as part of a little downtown appetizer and drinks restaurant tour my wife, son and I decided we would do. We tried the roasted tomato salad which was very good but under seasoned. The crab cake appetizer was good but not real exciting and we wished we would have ordered something more interesting from...

We recently went to Selva Grill for dinner with friends during the "Savor Sarasota" promotion. Our three course dinner consisted of shrimp ceviche, a choice of an entree (I had the duck and my husband had the salmon) followed by a choice of a coconut gelato or mocha mousse in a chocolate ring. All of the dishes were artistically displayed... More

We have dined at this establishment no less than ten times and the food is consistently very good. It is exotic fare mainly Peruvian with flavor, spicing and taste. The service was impeccable, attentive and efficient. Kudos to that female server whose name starts with an e.

I've been here a few times, so I knew going in what I was getting into.. but I did expect good food and on this occasion they did not deliver. First about the noise level.. the issue here is that its a small space with lots of tables, and it can get VERY LOUD. I mean so much that you... More
