We took friends along having heard positive things about the restaurant and their $25 three course summer dinner. House wine is offered at $15. The room is well laid out with most tables having a water view. The low ceiling combined with a wooden floor does mean that the restaurant is noisy. We were four people and could converse easily but a larger group might struggle. The summer menu gives a choice of three appetisers, four mains and two desserts. The appetisers we tried were just wonderful. The pear salad a real treat. All of the main courses were exceptional. The sea bass with risotto was heavenly. The one disappointment was the Stilton custard desert. We had a lot of debate as to what it might be but it was no more than a creme caramel with a tiny piece of Stilton sitting on top. Perhaps a rush of blood to the head when preparing the menu. Service is brusque but efficient. Great food..generally, great value and a nice location. Would certainly revisit.

This eatery was formerly located on Hillview street in Sarasota, and moved to their current location on Philippi creek.
My wife ordered a speciality sangria which arrived with a large dead fly smack in the middle of the $12 drink. We ordered dinner which was very good, especially the potato dumplings. Our server was apologetic but the manager never came by until we were done eating. She could have comped the drink but didn't, which we thought was totally wrong on her part. Don't know if we will go back because of the managers attitude.

We went to dinner with another couple with reservations for Saturday night. We sat at a high tp table in the bar area.
The service was very good and he knew all of the menu items in detail and was able to answer all of our questions.
They serve these fabulous bread / yukka / mozarella bites before the meal! We had the braised short ribs, the lobster pasta, the bacon jam appetizer, grilled peach salad, the Mardi Gras shrimp, a grilled peach salad and a side of their black stickey rice. All of the food was very high quality including on site made pasta.
It was a great view overlooking the water in addition to the good food. I definitely recommend this place!

Wife had the roasted chicken which she was very pleased with. I had the salmon which was also good. But the vestagables were pretty bad..broccoli rub ($5.5 )...it was down right bitter. The vestagables that came with entrée were just as pathetic.
And do not pay $8 to $10 for their desserts...The upside down apple cake was pretty bad.
And finally, having eaten there several times I have noticed the staff is well...a bit prissy. And I dine in New York often so that says a lot !

We stopped in for Father's Day and enjoyed the Happy Hour drink specials and $5 appetizers.

We will be bringing our Venice Dining Club here in the near future.

Special Thanks to Lara, the bartender, for great service!
