“EAT HERE * also in Sarasota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Tried both Eat Here cafes in AMI and the upscale version in Sarasota. Both has in sinc. Menus, Food, Service are a stand Out! Favorite starter is the Smoked Fish Dip: fresh catch smoked and puree served with a crown of cavair and capers. WOW

“Very good food, a little pretentious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

We visited the restaurant during a little getaway. We started with a very good Mediterranean appetizer. We needed more bread to go with it, and they were happy to bring us more. I ordered veal meatloaf and my wife had a tasty salmon with a horseradish sauce. We were happy with the food and enjoyed sharing.
Our server was fine, but not great. The atmosphere is a little pretentious, but I didn't think it was overpriced, especially for AMI.

“'Dont eat here'”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

stayed for 5th time on AMI and first visit to this establishment. Food was awful, menu is limited and they put things together which don't go. Had the fishcake which were puny and mostly made up of potato, the dish came with a sauce and nothing else, this was meant to be a main meal. Against my better judgement I ordered a dessert which was supposed to be a light sponge with a ginger glaze. It was a ginger sodden sponge which had been microwaved served with a couple of strawberries. It tasted even worse than it looked and asked for it to be removed from the bill. Needless to say give this a wide berth.

“Definitely Eat Here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Had dinner there after getting fed up & walking out of Lobstahs up the street. Service at Eat Here was great. Lobster tacos, veggie pizza, Mediterranean platter, and onion soup were all fantastic. Apple dessert was delicious. This wasn't the first time we ate here and it certainly won't be the last. For a wonderful meal and all around great dining experience: Eat Here!
