This is a wonderful choice for lunch, although I haven't had dinner there yet. There is a good variety of dishes that aren't the same as every other place in town, especially the tartines. The service is good, the place is pretty, and there is a parking lot!

There were nine of us with reservations. Everything was ready for us when we entered and we were taken care of with wonderful, friendly, and professional service. (and the rest of the restaurant was completely full with patrons!). The group had an assortment of items from soups to tartines to entrees and by all accounts everyone was delighted. I personally...

There are no Almond Croissants anywhere that beats here and C'est La Vie in Sarasota. Go early morning before they run out.

Recently, I met a friend for lunch at Lolita Tartine. It was my suggestion as I had been there before and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere This time, however, after we placed our order, we waited and waited and waited -- about 45 minutes. When we inquired politely of the young Gallic waiter (perhaps one of the owners?), he... More

Can't comment on the food because we left after waiting one hour for our order to be served. We sat at a table that became a battleground for a harried, officious, poorly dressed Frenchman and a pleasant and shy waitress, each of them soliciting our orders and then squabbling as they proceeded to wait on other people. It was lunchtime... More

Their staff is amazing which goes along way in Sarasota. It is the perfect place for a lunch meeting or getting a group of friends together. Patio seating and wifi are a huge bonus. I hope they continue to expand the menu.

The place is really cool and modern looking a tad big for the vibe they are going for. The service is not good ( fake acting waitress ). The tartines look really good when they came in, but taste wise did not blow me away. It was good (average). Cappuccino had too much milk ( even a latte would have... More

Started out not great... Came in and the lady behind the counter did not say hello or even acknowledged us. Waited by the register for about 5 minutes while she finished and came to us. Kind of awkward .. Do we sit? Do we pay ? Do we order and then sit? When the food came it looked really good.... More

If you can find the restaurant, you're golden - it's on 5th Street, but the street breaks off and starts again twice... Be forewarned! The decor is really cool - kind of Art Deco/1960s vibe. The silverware and plates were crazee! But... the food was really good! We had a three-course meal of beef burgundy, salmon app and vanilla creme... More

My wife and I had dinner on a Saturday night. The décor was bright with reds and greys and black and white. There was no carpet or tablecloths. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. For appetizers, I had the fresh asparagus with bacon, pine nuts and shaved parmesan; my wife had the Tartine Gauguin which was smoked salmon and... More
