Had a fantastic meal here. We had a large group and service couldn't have been better. Someone started with the chopped salad - it was a huge portion. It was terrific but had a bit too much cheese on top. I had the ceviche trio and that was amazing. Small portions of 3 different types of ceviche. So fresh and... More

Amazing food and presentation, and excellent atmosphere make this a 5 star. Kendra on the serving staff is a one star, so meeting at 3 seemed fair. Once Kendra found out we weren't drinking and ordering tapas and salads, not entrees, she scoffed and showed us a poor attitude and service, noting gratuity of 20% being added for a 6... More

We stopped in here late one Friday night for drinks and sat out on the sidewalk patio. The chocolate martinis were great and the atmosphere was pleasant. Service was good and the patio offered a great vantage for people watching.

Enjoyed the paella last night. Absolutely packed with seafood. Love the art work on the wall. Waiter was attentive and thorough. Great food, artfully presented. Dessert was beautifully presented & was a perfect size for 3 to share.

Great range of food and patrons: casual snowbirds, flash-dressed women, long term diners and newbies like us. Most of the food very well cooked, although had to send back some overcooked snapper (very disappointing). Creative seasonings and preparations.

Choose this place for our "date night" meal during our week at Siesta Key. It did not disappoint. We started with ceviche and our entrees were pork tenderloin and leg of lamb. All the food was delicious, with fresh flavors and satisfying taste. As always, we shared and savored each bite!! The only negatives were finding parking nearby (quite challenging),... More

Five star ratings are becoming harder to give anymore, however Selva Grill earned it and more. The service was top shelf the appetizers were amazing, excellent hot bread. The Spanish Caesar salad was delicious, and the entries were fabulous. This is a must stop when in Sarasota. Reservations are a must.
