Description: The Eat Here restaurants in Sarasota and Anna Maria Island were recently selected as two of Florida"s "Best New Restaurants" as part of Florida Trend's Golden Spoon Awards. The award was particularly gratifying for the team at Eat Here's parent restaurant, the Beach Bistro, which has long been enthroned in Florida Trend's "Golden Spoon Hall of Fame" and ZAGAT's "Top Restaurants in America. Eat Here was previously selected “Best New Restaurant” by newspapers on Anna Maria Island and in Sarasota. The third Eat Here has now opened on Siesta Key to similar rave reviews. Eat Here celebrates chef-crafted, Gulf-Coast cookery featuring presentations of local farm products, fresh, locally-caught seafood and inspired pizza and tacos. The Eat Here bars serve traditional and creative cocktails, craft beers, and wines from pimarily family-owned vineyards. Eat Here’s chef staff is trained in the Beach Bistro's school of commitment to culinary excellence.

“order the salmon”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Went there three times in one week. First two times , great food and great service . Third time the swordfish was raw and the tenderloin was mostly fat . The manager said they couldn't do any better and gave us credit for the fish and the tenderloin . The salmon was good all three times . Be careful what you order !

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Very good food. Busy, crowded, noisy. You really need a reservation and service is not consistent. Worth the trip because the food is good.

“The Best Restaurant in Siesta Key”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

You have to eat at Eat Here when visiting Siesta Key! It's now been open for just over a year, and the food continues to be excellent. The menu has a variety to choose from, and we're never disappointed with our choices! The service is always excellent and they are well informed of any specials. My only complaint is that it can be loud and noisy at times, but it's because everyone is having such a great time! I strongly recommend reservations, but as all restaurants in SK it's an early dining crowd, so go later to have a more leisurely dinner. Will go back again before we leave on this trip........ the food is amazing!

“Great menu and atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

This is a fun, funky atmosphere to have a great dinner in. The dining area is big an open which can lead to a noise problem, but not on the night I visited as my reservation was for 8:30 pm and as we were seated the restaurant slowly began to empty (This is Florida wear the state bird is the early bird). I ordered the salmon. It's on the menu as a wild salmon (not farm raised) and it was absolutely delicious. The fish was firm and flaky, unlike the farm raised which can be soft and mushy. It was cooked perfectly and had a sauce that had a nice bite to it. My guest had the mahi which was good, but the salmon was definitely the better choice!
