Back to Sarasota so wifey and I took son and GF to dinner on a quiet Monday night. Mixto, empanadas, scallop appetizers followed by whole snapper, short ribs, lamb chops, and skirt steak and then tres leches and banana flan- every dish was a winner. Total with tip was about $280.00 which is a lot for us but it's the... More

We got appetizers and they were great very colorful purple mashed potatoes and the service was good as well. Can be very busy so get there early. Kinda pricey but a great spot for a special occasion and worth it for the unique mix of food.

Selva Grill has the best Spanish Caesar Salad. The only problem is it's addicting! I also like their empanadas & rack of lamb. Great cocktails too. Try to get an outdoor table on the patio - great people watching spot. Love the inside decor! Kudos to the interior designer.

Recommended by our hotel, we were able to get reservations on a Friday night, with 2 hour notice. When we arrived, it was packed so we sat at the bar for about 30 minutes til our table was ready. The bar area is dark, lively and really cranks up later. Our table was seated right next to the bar so... More

Selva Grill is a South American Restaurant. Their food is incredible. We love the empanadas, cerviche, and just about anything else that is on the menu. The service is excellent as well and they make amazing drinks! If you don't like drinks, they have a very good wine list. We love this resturant.

I love the atmosphere and the painting on the wall is amazing. They have a very good selection of wines by the glass and I choose the Cabernet that I really enjoyed.

Quiet Sunday night dinner with the wife after returning from a long vacation. Enjoyed a very nice dinner for sure. The service was perfect. Started with the shrimp ceviche, we shared, excellent! She had their version of Caesar salad. Also excellent. I had the pulpo/Octopus app which I rate very good. Flavored with high quality olive oil and olive tapenade.... More

We recently went to Selva to celebrate a friend's birthday. The basil grapefruit martini was delicious! The tuna special was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Two friends tried the short ribs, which melted in your mouth like butter. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. We followed her suggestions and we were not disappointed.... More
