Thanks to Nicole (concierge at the Ritz) for a great dining recommendation, well within walking distance and right in the Main Street/downtown area of Sarasota. Our visit was not without a little drama, but the staff made it right...we were originally seated in the dining alcove in the bar area (way too loud, and we had a drunk lady knock... More

We have spent a great deal of time in Sarasota over the years and don't know how we have missed this restaurant until now. This was the best meal we have ever had in Sarasota. Food was excellent, beautifully presented and different. Menu is varied and Peruvian based. Best authentic Pisco Sour cocktail we have had outside of Peru. Lovely... More

The main restaurant has indoor and covered patio options, but the bar, which is along a dimly lit corridor, is a comfortable place to drink and dine during the designated happy hour. What would usually be quite pricey small plates run from $6-$8 in the bar and include offerings such as fish croquette, spring roll, a well sauced skirt steak... More

We had one of the most testy seafood meals, appetizer I had crab cake and the main course sea bass finished it up with chocolate brûle.... each one of them were great. The terrasse was great for people watching while enjoying a great meal.

We have been coming here annually during our October visit for at least 6 years and have never been disappointed and we are "foodies". Great service, awesome ceviche (which we love), well executed and beautifully presented entrees. Only minor glitch was not enough basil and too much simple syrup in "grapefruit basil martini" and we would love to see expanded... More

My husband and I had our first dining experience at Selva tonight. The food was incredible. This chef is talented. Everything was cooked to perfection! I had the beef short rib with pearls of cous cous & grilled asparagus! Delicious! Every bite was tender & flavorful. My husband had paella - my fork kept wandering over to his plate. The... More

The food was good but way over priced and the portions are small. I won't be back because of the prices.

As a vegetarian and visiting Florida regularly I am always searching for restaurants that have vegetarian selections. Selva Grill's Plato Vegetariano was fabulous!! My dinner companions had the salmon special and thoroughly enjoyed the fare. There was quite a flourish as the wait staff served our party at the same time. We all thought our meals were delicious and the... More
