“For fine dining and a large selection of wine”

For fine dining, try Harry’s Continental Kitchen. Harry’s is a very upscale restaurant serving gourmet seafood dishes and offers an extensive list of fine wines. Try the lobster parfait – it’s delectable. You won’t get any ice cream with it, but you will get large chunks of lobster. The hogfish, a local fresh fish, recommended by our waitress, turned out to be a great choice. Harry’s also offers a premier catering service.

“Always delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

We dined at Harry's during their $25 summer special. The food is superb! The filet, while not huge, was deliciously prepared with a sauce that was wonderful. The death by chocolate cake was simply out of this world. No water view, but the lovely gardens are delightful! Give it a try!

“The best meal I have had since moving to Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2011

I picked Harry's Continental Kitchen from Savor Sarasota. I had never been there but wanted to try different restaurants during the Savor Sarasota weeks. Everything I ordered was amazing. The ginger cashew coleslaw with the soft shelled crab, crab cake and corn relish was amazing. Each bite was fillled with flavor! Out of our group of 4 I picked the winner! Although- every single thing we ordered was fabulous. The wine list was quite extensive as well.
You absolutely have to try Harry's Continental Kitchen- it is worth the drive.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2011

This was the best dinner we have had all week.

The staff were friendly ( I can't stand pretentious wait staff) and happy to be working there.
We sat at the bar for a drink, chatted with the friendly bartender, and a nice young man named Jose. I loved the atmosphere, quaint and super comfortable.
We enjoyed our dinner outside. My favorite was the wedge salad. They had charred the lettuce a bit, and caramelized the bacon, I had the filet mignon, which was awesome. The whipped potatoes were not super hot, so that would be my only complaint.
It wasn't cheap, but we will definitely be back.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2011

Having been here many times in the past this visit was very disappointing and we will not be returning. We had to wait over an hour before any food was served and we were dining with our 7 year old daughter, who was almost too tired to eat by this point! The rest of us had snapper which is a beautiful fish which had been destroyed by overcooking and served with a dressing which was overpowered by a predominant balsamic vinegar flavour. All in all a complete waste of money.
