My wife and I went to Ionie for lunch today -- somehow we have missed this gem before -- and it was five-star in every regard. Delicious and creative food, interesting drinks, lovely staff, beautiful atmosphere, and all-vegan/organic. We cannot possibly recommend it highly enough!

This is our new favorite place to eat! The whole experience was uplifting, and the food is unique, nourishing, and SO delicious. If you’ve never tried raw food cuisine, you’re in for a treat! This is not about a carrot on a plate. This is...a symphony of flavors and textures that delight the palate. We highly recommend The Martin handheld and the sushi. The cheesecake is incredible too. Go here with a sense of adventure and you’ll be back for more!More

This place is, hands down, the best health food restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. From the Fresh, Unique and Original recipes, (how do they even think of this stuff??), to the insanely delicious health drinks....I would literally eat here every day...if I lived close by. A small family owned restaurant run by a genuinely kind woman. At these prices, they clearly do this for the love of it, not for the $$$.More

This isn’t just a great restaurant for Sarasota - this is a great restaurant period. Raw vegan and everything looked delicious. Plus, if you’re in a rush, you can take all the options straight from the fridge to go. Prices are reasonable for what they...are offering and service was attentive and thoughtful. An absolute must visit while in Sarasota for clean healthy eating.More

Grabbed an Italian pizza and Thai noodles. Both outstanding! The pizza was tiny but the best tasting pizza ever. The noodles were two meals!

I was so pleasantly surprised by the delicious taste of the food and by the ample serving sizes that I had to write a review. My husband is the proponent for healthy food, I love food but it usually doesn't love me back. We ordered...a salad and the falafel. My falafel was superb!! The onion bread was terrific and the salad was fresh with delicious dressing. We went back 3 days later to try different items. The zucchini pasta bowl was in a creamy delicious sauce and I must admit I repeated the falafel I liked it so much. Hard to believe something that tastes so good can also be good for you!.More

Their strawberry cheesecake was so mouthwatering that we couldn’t stop talking about for hours! We ate the salad and it was also good. Nice oasis for vegans.

This sophisticated community lovingly supports the richness of raw foods. Entering seems like a walk in a flower garden. The vibe of tasty good health seems to generate around this lovely yellow clapboard house. The taste surprises arise from fresh herbs, chopped nuts and veggies...ripe and full. It’s a serene experience to mend the day!!More

Incredible health food option within walking distance of the Westin and Ritz resorts. My husband and I were attending a conference at the Ritz and one of the other guests had highly recommended we try Ionie for lunch and we are so glad we did....The food was so fresh and flavorful, and the staff and chefs were all very personable and attentive making sure we were taken care of and enjoying our visit and the food. They even took the time to explain the unique health benefits of their food which is all served cold to preserve the digestive enzymes and nutrient integrity. I was also amazed that not only are they completely plant-based/vegan, but they are also GLUTEN AND SOY FREE which was a huge benefit for me since I have allergies to both, making traditional vegan options at most restaurants even more limited. I was elated that I was free to eat everything on the menu! I ordered the Mac and Cheese, and my husband ordered the Lasagna and they did not disappoint. Loved it! We will surely be back before our trip concludes! Thank you, Ionie - we wish we had more options like you back home!More
