“Fabulous x”

This was the best restaurant that we ate at during our recent trip to Sarasota.

The food is excellent.

The service is outstanding and the staff really know their menu.

The Tapas is a must.

“Tapas Tuesdays are a Must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Four of us decided to take advantage of Ceviche's Tapas Tuesday menu -- all tapas on this menu are $4. The full menu is also available. We ordered eight tapas, which was a bit too much. They left no room for dessert. Most of the tapas had excellent flavors, except for the fried calamari, which was over-fried and mostly tentacles. We were quite surprised by the size of some of the portions, which were fairly large for tapas. The dipping sauce for the bread is also delicious. Our server was very nice and enthusiastic about the restaurant. We're definitely planning on going back for Flamenco night (second Friday of every month). Also, the rooftop bar and view is wonderful.

“Do Not, I repeat Do Not Miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Four stories of restaurant. Roof top bar to watch sunset - we had rain, but I could see how nice it could be. The food was phenomenal - each plate they brought out was better than the last. The service was top rate as well. We were well catered to and the place was crowded. That says a lot. The server's knowledge of the menu helped us in choosing and he was right on each time. The pitcher of Sangria was delicious. You must try Ceviche's when you are in Sarasota.
