“Farm & sea to table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Dined at this cool resto with gourmet friends from NYC...loved everything. Had wonderful chassagne montrachet; parmesan pear beignets were delicate puffs with a perfect blend of sweet and salty flavors; smooth and earthy wild mushroom bisque with tiny crunchy truffled croutons; perfectly cooked arctic char - we're huge fans of arctic char and this was one of the best we've had anywhere; and surprisingly terrific mote marine sturgeon, tender with a hint of sweetness, and again perfectly cooked. Brioche pudding with rum brown sugar ice cream was to die for, light, not too sweet. Service - Alberto - was excellent, he was attentive, charming and well versed in the intricacies of the chef's culinary magic. So happy Chef Steve stayed in Sarasota!

“Reservation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is another restaurant that will try to have you dine when it's convenient for them, rather than give you a reservation when you want to dine. Don't play their game and insist on your time or go somewhere else where you can dine at your desired time.
