Had another wonderful dinner at Farlow’s. The stuffed portobello and the coconut shrimp were outstanding starters. The St Croix Seafood Pie was decadent and rich. The seafood plentiful, puff pastry as buttery as can be, and the sauce perfect. My wife had the Anguilla Hog...Fish which had a perfect crust of macadamia and coconut with a nice light sauce. We finished the evening with The Biggest Chocolate Cake ala mode. Drinks we’re great too and the service by Rita was perfect. Did not rush us and timed everything perfectly. Thanks to all for a great birthday dinner for my wife!More

Finding both great service and seafood is hard to come by these days. Farlow's provided both along with an authentic Florida ambience. Our server, Rita, did an excellent job of answering questions and helped guide us towards top shelf dining choices. Triggerfish, Sea Scallops, Crab...stuffed Shrimp all were prepared to perfection. Thank you for helping make our "date night" a perfect 10.More

My wife and I and two other couples had the pleasure of dining at Farlow’s on the Water in Englewood last night. We were immediately blessed with a phenomenal waitress (TERRI), who enhanced our experience. The food was delicious (Ossobucco, Triggerfish to highlight a couple...of items on the menu) and we just barely had room to taste the Bourbon Pecan Bread Pudding ~ amazing!! Thanks again, Terri, for taking care of us.More

This restaurant is one of the very best. Took new friends here last night. They were blown away. Both are from Europe and used to fine dining. Said the food rivaled those in Europe and were so glad we took them there. Always a pleasure....By the way, the seafood pie is to die for.More

After staying in Rotonda for three weeks we visited here four times. This is our favourite restaurant and go every time we stay at Rotonda which has been regularly over many years. Farlow’s never let’s us down the food, ambiance and staff are all excellent....The choice and quality of of the food is excellent, my favourite is the Crab salad and the Clam Chowder. The entertainment they have on from Wednesday to Sunday makes it special along with the setting. They now have on-line booking reservations which worked very well you can choose the area you would like your table we usually go for the Garden Patio just in case the weather changes and a shower arrives whilst having our meal, it is covered but still outside.More

We decided last minute to try this restaurant, we had driven by several times but didn't have the time to stop. Well, this time we did and so glad we did. Food was amazing along with the beautiful view. Our waiter, Doug was so knowledgeable...about the menu and the history of the restaurant. He was extremely friendly and we enjoyed having him wait on us! We will definitely share our experience with family and friends and can't wait to come back.More
