Nice mall
Apr 2021
Since COVID, this was our first experience in a mall - now that we had our vaccines. We felt comfortable and the majority of the shoppers in and out of the stores had masks. The mall was brightly lit, clean and very pleasant. One thing we noticed is that there were fewer salespeople and places to check out in Macy's.

Very surprised at the pro mask in all of the shops. Going and not supporting the governor anti mask is awesome. Signs on doors saying masks required...felt safe and thankful

HORRIBLE MALL. COMPLETELY IN VIOLATION OF ALL CDC GUIDELINES.
Dec 2020 • Solo
ABSOLUTELY DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU ARE REMOTELY CONCERNED ABOUT COVID. About 50% of people are not wearing masks and the mall is PACKED. There is NO enforcement for mask wearing and many of the people have no mask in sight and they are not even eating or drinking. Every store is packed and has little to no limits on people who can come in. It is also extremely difficult to exit the mall. Complete COVID nightmare. Please do not go here.

Thank you so much for sharing your review and concerns with us. Currently, The Mall at UTC is not under any masks and capacity limitation mandates in Sarasota County. While we encourage mask use for all guests, and we even hand-out free masks at our customer service desk for guests, they are not mandated for our area. As such, our area is also not under any visitor capacity restrictions within our building, but we do monitor social distancing, and have social distancing line markers at the entrances of our stores, as well as have signs throughout the center to remind all guests that social distancing practices are in effect. We do understand your concerns and are taking all precautions necessary for cleaning and maintaining distancing practices, while also encourage mask usage for all guests.

disappointed
Aug 2020
Ordered the steak and cheese sub and will not do it again . The bread was like chewing on tire rubber . There was 3oz of steak at most and not very good . 16 dollars and if it was 7 dollars I still would be disappointed . They are know for large portions, not my experience.

Hi Scott! Thanks so much for leaving us feedback. Can you let us know what restaurant you placed your order with so we can share this review with them (since this page is for the entire Mall at UTC and not one specific restaurant/store)? Thanks so much!

Attractive modern shopping center
Feb 2020
There is easy access to this mall for travelers as it is located at I-75 and University Parkway. It seems that unlike unfortunately many malls all over the country this relatively new one managed to preserve its attractiveness for shoppers and staying very much alive. It is anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, and Dillard's besides probably a hundred other stores. Clean and pleasant with many restaurants, mainly reputable chains.

Shop Till You Drop
Feb 2020 • Couples
My wife and I always pay a visit to Sarasota’s Mall at University Centre when we spend several weeks on Longboat Key each winter. The range of shopping opportunities is considerable, including Macy’s, Saks, Banana Republic, Dillard’s, and many more. We always stop at the excellent Saks tearoom for lunch, which certainly beats the usual food-court offerings. If you like to shop, this mall is a great place to stop.

When you need to get out of the heat and sun!!
Jan 2020
If you love to shop and want to have a nice day out, this is the place. Great shops, good restaurants (my favorite is Season's 52 for lunch) and just a nice place to sit down and enjoy the day. Highly recommend if you love shopping (even has a Louis Vuitton store) and then have a nice meal outside. Sophie's in Saks Fifth Avenue is really good also - definitely hidden within the store. Won't be disappointed - excellent food and good wine menu.

Gorgeous mall with upscale shopping
Feb 2020
We stopped here to shop, and to pick up some things we had ordered online from Best Buy. First of all, the scale of this shopping area is HUGE. And they have a wide selection of stores like Best Buy, Dillards, Macys, Saks, etc along with a number of restaurants. The shops are in areas with plentiful, palm-tree lined parking. We had no trouble finding shade for our vehicle. There are fountains and decorations of white lights and it is very pretty.

The selection is on the upscale end in the stores and the stores themselves are new and CLEAN. I was particularly impressed with the selection of electronics at Best Buy; we have shopped there for years in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and never saw the high end items that we saw here. It's nice to know you can actually look at these brands on the floor here.

Overall, a terrific experience. We will come back.
