Dozens of visits to this SARASOTA mainstay have consistently been rewarded. Happy hour is perhaps the best in town because of the filling and tasty bar menu. The main dining room is always busy, so plan ahead...they use Open Table. Nothing on the menu will disappoint... So be adventurous with this Peruvian style menu. However, the Peruvian style is often... More

We had a nice meal with great service, but who wants a nice night out to be over in an hour. Our food, though good, was served within minutes of our order. Dinner arrived as we were putting our forks down from our first course. We finished eating and had a half a bottle of wine left. There should be... More

Best tuna and watermelon appetizer. You can't go wrong with any choice you make, food is great!! Perfect place for a lively dinner, a bit loud so not so great for a romantic dinner.

First visit to this restaurant and the last one. My husband and I waited a long time for the waiter to take our order, I was ready to get up and leave and during our meal she only came once to refill our drinks. I ordered the Cevice Mixto and what a disappointment!!!! I can tell you my dear Peruvian... More

This restaurant had been indicated by one of our neighbor, it was really exceptional and the Chilean note is surprising in the good sense. The place is a bit dark if you want to see what you eat or if you want to work but it's romantic.

First visit here but will be a repeat customer. Service was great--Colin did an excellent job of explaining the menu and making some excellent suggestions. This was the bestmeal my wife and I have had in our 32 years of marriage. Such a wide variety of choices and we tried several. Loved it all--will be back soon.

Everything about Selva is top notch. My wife and I splurge at SG twice a year while visiting Casey Key. Great service. Attentive. High Quality cuisine. Wonderful atmosphere. Eclectic menu.

Let me start by saying that the food blew us away. I have heard great things about Selva and the food definitely lived up to the recommendations. Would have given 5 stars, however service was mediocre at best(the stars are really for the food in this case). When we arrived there were 2 girls at the hostess stand who were... More

A great meal tonight! We had a table for four and experienced an amazing flavor filled meal. Our table split a trio of ceviche with a white fish, a shrimp, and a tuna version. The shrimp ceviche was so amazing with the lime, cilantro, and red onion blast of freshness! The second appetizer was beef empanadas that were light and... More
