Tucked away on a side street, the Mar Vista initially doesn't look like much on the outside, but don't let the first glance fool you. The outdoor ambiance is awesome (you can sit on a patio, under the trees, or inside if you like). The restaurant is right on the Sarasota Bay, and you can walk on the dock if you so desire. Service was excellent - both the server and manager repeatedly checked on our party. The food was great, and they were very accomodating to the children in the party (they even have a 'treasure chest' where kids can get a free toy). Our server Carol was very conscientious and friendly. Would definitely go again! The only downside is we've been coming to Longboat Key for years and had never eaten there before!!
