Had dinner at Duvals last night with my fiancée, daughter and her boyfriend. The restaurant is in the heart of downtown Sarasota, which is a place I like to visit, as there are a lot of independent shops, galleries and restaurants.
The restaurant itself, is somewhat minimalist, but still elegant in it's simplicity. I really enjoyed being in a restaurant where you could hear yourself talk, so many good restaurants are too noisy. The service was really attentive, just right.
My daughter had the filet, which was beautiful - she ordered it medium rare and it was cooked exactly how she ordered it. She enjoyed it very much. My fiancée had the crab stuffed salmon, which was very fresh and grilled to perfection. They offer a chocolate soufflé, which must be ordered with dinner, as it takes around 30 minutes. We didn't have any, but I'm sure it is very good.
There's not a lot of parking around the restaurant, sometimes you may need to park on a side street.
Worth a visit!
