My wife and I love this place. A sophisticated atmosphere (but not snobby or stodgy), a wonderful menu, very good wine list, and truly professional servers. Also one of the few restaurants (let alone one with live music) where you can still hold a conversation at normal volume. We have been a number of times and each time found a... More

I ordered a Paella and the serving was so small I thought they were giving me an appetizer. The dish didn't resemble Paella in any way, shape or form.However when... More

I have lived in Sarasota for several years now and have never tried any of the Mattison's restaurants until this past Sunday night when a friend of mine invited me to dinner. Although my first impression of the place was old school and somewhat dated (dark foyer, bizarre artwork, traditional crooner at the piano singing Frank Sinatra standards), the Maitre... More

Wonderful menu and preparation./presentation. Like the extension of the Savor Sarasota to reward the locals for not being able to get in easily in the tourist season!

They will try to please you. Cooked my meal the way I asked for it. Very good. Just wasn't hot. Still pleased, however, and I would go again

Mattison's Forty-One schedules wine dinners on a regular basis. These require reservations in advance and are held in a separate room in the rear of the restaurant. They are prix-fixe dinners with a set menu of 6 courses with a different wine pairing for each course. A host, representing the winery or the distributor describes the wine before each course....

Great ingredients, interesting choices. Pricey but the $15.00 lunch includes appetizer and drink. I had the Artichoke started and the salmon entree. Delicious.

I came here after going to Escape Rooms Sarasota with my family and the food was very good. However the service was bad, the waitress was very nice but very slow.
