We ate at Connors our first night visiting Sarasota. The food was so good we almost came back again but wanted to try different restaurants. I had the sea bass topped with crab meat over cous cous. It also came with large asparagus spears and...a generous bowl of roasted brussel sprouts in a sweet balsamic glaze. My husband got the 9 oz. filet mignon and really enjoyed it. Highly recommend!More

Returned after great experience last time to Siesta Key. Straight from the Airport to Connor's to be sure we got it in this trip. Will definitely return. Love the steak and lobster.

A waiter that didnt listen. My salad was brought with the wrong dressing ( I asked my friends if I ordered what I thought I did and they said yes ) I wanted a 6 oz filet that was cooked medium. I got a steak...that was very rare. It actually was barely edible and hard to even cut. I have been to this restaurant 4 times in the last month and everything was very good. This restaurant is too expensive to get this type of treatmentMore

Food and service were absolutely superb. I was very pleasantly surprised at the price. For 3 steak dinners ,2 included very large lobster tails, and a bottle of wine, bill was only 316.00. Will most definitely return.

Nice menu with all food reasonably priced. Very large portions of food. Must make reservations for evenings. Service was excellant. The steaks are well cooked but not quite as good as prime. The biggest issue is how loud the room is. When dining I feel...a more subdued room makes for a more pleasant experience. Parking is on site. Nice spot.More

For a restaurant server to be a true professional they must offer an amicable greeting, be totally knowledgeable of the items on the menu, ensure that items ordered are correctly despatched from the kitchen and continue to check that the customers at the table are...happy with the food presented to them. Such a professional is Emily at Connors. Her attitude was a bonus to the excellent experience of lunch with a totally delicious (but inauthentic) fish and chips proceeded by delightful creamy lobster bisque.More

Great food and great service! Went with friends for their anniversary dinner. John was our server and was outstanding! Personable, helpful, funny and prompt. He was on top of refreshing our drinks and cocktails, made suggestions for our sides and made sure our friends got...a nice dessert to honor their anniversary. We never felt rushed. A totally relaxing and enjoyable experience. The steak, burgers and Chicken were perfectly prepared and well presented. The bussers and food runners were equally friendly and quick and helpful. Just a great dinner.More

This restaurant is the best in Sarasota. Pricy, but less than the well known chains and the food is much better. Best calamari I have ever had. Not the tough rings and tentacles that most serve. I had the prime rib sandwich for dinner, although...it is only on the lunch menu. This isn’t a sliced chesesesteak, but a thick prime rib on a roll. Best steak sandwich you will ever have. It is more of a local restaurant and not the normal tourist trap.More

Hit or miss! Both times we were there the steaks were horrible! We went 2 weeks ago for my husband's birthday. Service acceptable as could be.... Seafood tower fresh and reliable Steaks mediocre at best! My salad came with all the components missing and served...by different people at different times. He's a steak man so he knows what is great or not. His NY Strip came out cold and like hard rubber. Second steak was hot but with tons of fat and grizzle. My Chilean seabass came out cold and missing a side His birthday dessert came out without a candle because it was in the servers pocket and he clearly forgot it. Jasmine, the manager, did her best to make our experience great, but unfortunately, the kitchen and chef were the problem. We won't be returning any time soon.More
