The Hostess/Owner has an attitude and was somewhat arrogant, in answering questions concerning the Menu.
The food was fine, but not exceptional.
A return visit is not planned, because of the Hostess/Owners attitude.

Roessler's is excellent in every way. The wait staff is professional and friendly simultaneously--and infinitely patient. The ambiance of the main dining room was lovely--understated but elegant. And the food! My husband had escargot as an appetizer then wiener schnitzel and mixed vegetables (an unlikely combo of carrots, red cabbage, onions and greens beans); all were cooked to perfection and the flavors of the vegetables & entree mingled beautifully. There wasn't anything on the menu for me as a vegetarian, so the chef produced one of the finest vegetable plates that I have ever had--with a melt-in-your-mouth mushroom ravioli on the side. The wine was excellent as well.

This family owned restaurant is one of the best in Florida and certainly the best in the Sarasota's area. They have 3 different dining rooms overlooking a spectacular garden with lack. Ideal for special occasions. The wine list is impressive and able to satisfy the most demanding. Some specialties like the lobster tails or the Crispy duckling are amazing. More than excellent value for money. An unforgettable moment ! Unfortunately they are only open for dinner.

This is one of the places where folks like us go for special occasions. Upscale décor, food, service, and wine. The rooms are upscale and the view of the gardens, especially at night, set the mood for fine dining. The service is very professional and the food is prepared and presented by folks who know how to please appetites that are out for a big night on the town. Please, don't drop in wearing your tank top and flipflops and take your hat off cause this ain't Denney's....

Tucked away a short distance off of rte. 41 Roessler’s is a total surprise. The grounds are very tranquil and offer a nice place for a short after dinner stroll. Once inside the tables are spaciously separated as compared with most other area restaurants. Most tables offer a view of the lake or the gardens. I have dined here several times and have never been disappointed in the food or the service. The menu offers a good selection for most any palate. One of my favorite meals begins with the Vichyssoise (french onion soup is great on a chilly night). For a main course I enjoy the Crispy Duck which is served with a cherry glaze. Would also suggest the Steak Diane. There is also a great desert selection, providing you save the room.
