Wonderful food all around.....Chef Jim never disappoints. Tonight I had a Moroccan Lamb Shank and my wife had the Seafood Tagine. Both were beyond perfect....the flavors were a party for your mouth. Reasonable $10 corkage fee for our own wine plus a poached pear and perhaps the best carrot cake on the planet for desert. Nice entertainment as well -... More

We looked up most romantic restaurants and this was in the top 10!!! We were lucky as they had live jazz playing on Monday nights which was soft and enjoyable. Service was exceptional and the owner stopped by and gave us a little history of her and the restaurant. Good wine selection and the Super Tuscany selection was superb.

This "bijou" restaurant housed in the Bradenton Art District is a real gem, Chef Jim turns out the most interesting menu's with tastes and flavours to waken your taste buds. Don't be surprised to see dishes with Mexican influences alongside Mongolian, Asian and European and just to make things even more interesting he applies his own twist. But there's more,... More

We were a party of four. We came here on a Monday evening expecting a great meal and to listen to some jazz. We had reservations for 1830 hours. We got there at 1800 when they opened. The waitress said, "I can seat you but can't take any orders until later". The entire evening there seemed to be one waitress... More

This is a great place for foodies, with the most charming 'old florida house' atmosphere. Don't forget to save room for dessert! Vegetarian friendly. Also, pricey.

Hummus type menu you pay more for fancy names and I mean alot more. Small crowded and noisey. Menu was not my fare. Better places to go for much less. Scenic neighborhood all done with bright colors to try for a artsy place.

We were quickly welcomed to the quaint little restaurant. Every dish had the perfect amount of flavor and portions. You know when dining here that everything is fresh and carefully made. Service was excellent. We'll return many times! Music was great too!!

Description
Arts & Eats Restaurant and Gallery, located in the center of the Village of the Arts in Bradenton, Florida, features an international menu created by Chef Jim Copening, and broken dish mosaics and jewelry by Donna Slawsky. Dine on the enclosed porch or main dining room of the newly remodeled 1920s bungalow, on the front lawn, or in the shaded backyard "park" graced by a huge banyan tree. Donna and Jim have created a colorful restaurant and gallery that is casually elegant with an emphasis on great food, international flavors and lots of love. We also cater events.
