The food is absolutely Delicious!! My favorite dish is the Veal Sweetbreads, just like my father use to make!! My husband & I shared the shrimp appetizer & the sauce was Outstanding! We used the crusty bread to wipe up every drop of sauce...:-) We have always been very pleased & satisfied with all our food selections! We highly recommend Roessler's for a special occasion. It is a beautiful & very romantic place.

We have been going to Roessler's for over 20 years. Met friends this past weekend for another outstanding meal. Linda was charming, as always. Mark our waiter was top notch. Escargot was very good and the Hawaiian Butterfish with lemon butter sauce and almonds was absolutely delicious. Of course the atmosphere is beautiful. On of the best restaurants in Sarasota. We will be back soon!

The "beaten path" in Florida is Route 41, the old (and still) Tamiami Trail. The Trail was so named because it used to be the main highway between Tampa and Miami, but is now supplanted by Rt 75, a four and sometimes six lane thruway. However, there are still some wonderful restaurants, motels and other sights worth stopping for on the Trail and a visit to Roesslers for its Continental menu would be one reason to take the slower highway. It is located in extreme southern Sarasota just north of Venice, about a half block from Rt 41.

I had eaten at Roesslers some years ago when the menu featured German/Swiss specialities but now is entirely Continental and the only item which I remembered was Weinerschnitzel (sp) and of course that is what I ordered complete with anchovies, capers and topped with a fried egg. Others in our party had crisp roast duckling, the fish special called "butterfish" and veal scallopini (franchese style). Each of these were served with small side dishes of several vegetables, all tasty and perfectly cooked. The food was fresh, attractively plated and presented on fine china. The portion size was adequate without being gross and nothing came covered with sauce to cover the fact that it had been sitting on the stove for hours.

The main dining room has windows with a Garden view on two sides and the only distraction was the fact that the noise level of diners was magnified because of a hard surfaced ceiling and floor resulting in reverbration from normal conversational sounds. Reservations are suggested and honored and in the summer "off" months there are specials offered so be sure to ask your hostess. The menu pricing is average for this upscale restaurant and worth trying.
