“Happy Hour with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We met friends here before dinner and were very happy with the food, drinks and service. Plantain Chips were crispy, warm and just the right amount of salt-great with the $5 premium drinks. Cozy atmosphere. A repeat when I'm back in Sarasota.

“Always Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

My husband and I had dinner here last night with friends. The atmosphere here is great. The food is as beautiful as it is good tasting. I had the rack of lamb with a truffled risotto. It was tender and delicious. My cousin had the red snapper. OMG it was beautiful. This has been my second visit here. I am looking forward to going back soon!

“Food does not live up to the praise. Nice atmosphere though.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

I was excited to try this place based on all the good reviews. The atmosphere is modern and the decor is pleasing. So far so good. After that, it didn't live up to the praise that the other reviewers lavished on it. I started out with a crab cake and it was one crab cake for $16. I was hopeful that it would be a sensational crabcake. It was not, and I might say even ordinary. They put a little dollop of this and a sprig of that and fu-fu it up but underneath, not a lot of taste. My husband had ceviche (which in general he loves) but it was very limey. Lime is good, but it was a little too limey. He had bouillabaise which he said was decent but not great. I forget my main course but the truffle fries were good and the best value on the menu. Just go in, have one drink and the truffle fries. The desserts looked fantastic. I don't eat dessert so I cannot say how they taste but they looked divine. They are very big on food design here. If I wanted pictures of food, I would go here, but I won't return because the price they charge is too much for the taste they deliver.

“Best Restaurant in Sarasota”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Selva Grill is in a Class by Itself.
Superior food, Service, Bar and Presentation. Jeremy manages Selva with his quiet presence, overseeing every table and is responsible for its superb reputation. Aldo assists and does the same. Steve's Bar Tending is Extraordinary and creates the most delicious and beautiful drinks in town and beyond. The dishes are all masterful in their presentation and exquisite in taste.
The dining is comfortable/casual/elegant.
They are open for dinner 7 days and are almost always full. If planning a dinner at Selva I would highly recommend a reservation well in advance. A Jewel!

“Busy and good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Found this on TripAdvisor, and tried it as it was a reasonable walk from the hotel. It was busy, but we got a good table on the patio. The food was very good, with large portions, and the bill was reasonable.
