I took my friend here for her birthday lunch. It was while Savor Sarasota menu was available. We both had the quiche, which was delicious. I was so looking forward to having French onion soup, as I have vivid recollections of the soup I had in Paris a year ago. While the soup was good, it did not have the... More

It looks right — a narrow rectangular room, calm French wallpaper, well-space tables. The menu is limited, as you would expect from a small kitchen; but the dishes are basic, gut-warming, and unpretentious — beouf bourgignon, duck breast, fillet of flounder in lobster sauce, chicken breast (alas, not thighs!) in a creamy sauce Normande. Two aooetizers to keep me there... More

We went to 62 Bistrot as we wanted to try a small place with great food. It is small like french restaurants should be about 35 places. And the food was great if you like interesting sauces. The waitress was Rosemary who was very friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. It was only Savor Sarasota menu but had duck for... More

A delightful, small bistro with easy parking in Sarasota. Although the menu is limited, it offers authentic French eating. After many travels to Europe, I was delighted to find true French-style cheese and pate plate, in-house made pate. The Boeuf Bourguignon was superb also. The service was great, helping us to select a delightful wine to suit our tastes.

Small neighborhood bistro near Sarasota Memorial Hospital. Mom and Pop owner and chef. Good wine, excellent sauces and outlandishly good dessert crepes.

Highly recommend this little French jewel close to Sarasota hospital. Food was excellent and totally fresh prepared by French chef. Served by a delightful French server as well. Everything was wonderful from Gorgonzola Salad, Dijon Chicken to BEST crepes ever. Will definitely return.

A party of twelve people might be more than a small restaurant should have to take on. We sat for over an hour before our food order was taken. It was a prix fixe menu for "Valentines" (always a scary proposition). I ordered Onion Soup and Beef Bourguignon to avoid experimentation, and both were mediocre. Service was appallingly slow, and...
