My wife and I were staying across the street and walked in Friday evening without reservations. We were offered a seat at the bar and were happy to accept. It gave us the opportunity to meet the owners Javier and Mary and watch them work. It was obvious to me that they were truly invested in and proud of their... More

This for me would be a place for special occasions as it is a little expensive for my budget, I wanted to take my Sister and Brother-in-Law out for a nice meal as I was visiting Sarasota, staying in their Condo. We had a reservation for 6:30, our corner table was ready when we arrived, seated by the owner himself.... More

A charming establishment albeit in the corner of a strip mall. Very nice owners. I actually took our meal to go on New Year's eve and it was superb - ceviche was quite tasty and their version of 'surf & turf' was excellent. The Caeser's salad was also quite good and all was prepared very timely

Our server was not accommodating to food allergies or questions. The management questioned our requests, and even after explaining there were food allergies, we were still talked about. There is no kids menu and the atmosphere is not welcoming for families.

Visited Javier's twice and I must say it is a very good place to eat with a menu that offers tapas along with their own Peruvian dishes. There is a great variety in the menu from a la carte to a very good all inclusive deal. Our food was served in a very professional way with a great deal of... More

If you like eating in strip malls, this restaurant is right up your alley. The food is good, I wouldn't say it's spectacular but satisfactory. I enjoyed the tapas, they had a nice variety. I had a cilantro risotto that was a little overboard on the cilantro but the risotto was a nice consistency. No hard liquor sales which was... More

Conveniently hidden in a strip mall, Javier's is a cosmopolitan place with many wonderful choices of appetizers, dinners, desserts, and wines. Interesting taste combinations, wonderfully cooked. Truly excellent. Unique and not a chain restaurant, with quality ingredients well prepared and tastefully served.

This small restaurant is charming and cozy, with good food at reasonable prices. On a Friday evening it was full with older couples, groups of ladies and families with young adult children. Service was attentive. We had the four course fixed price sampler which gave us a nice variety of tastes. Definitely save room for the bananas foster! Try the... More

This is a little gem hidden away in Siesta Key. The service was spot on (each course followed perfectly after each other with no waiting), food incredible and beautiful setting. We loved this place and will return for sure the next time we are in Siesta Key. It is very rare to have such a wonderful experience but Javier has... More
