“You cannot miss it! Extraordinary”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

My wife and I went to Antoine's to try the mussels, and it was an extraordinary experience. From Olivier's super warm welcoming to the ambiance and o food, everything was perfect. Olivier has an unique way to make all the patrons feel special.
My wife had the creamy garlic mussels, and I had the Asparagus mussels. Two totally different flavors, yet each one were wonderful. One was full strong flavor to the palate, whereas the other was balance and aromatic.
We had a sample of sorbet for dessert, and it was the grand finale!
Eating experience in Sarasota is not complete if you don’t stop by Antoine’s.

“Very good restaurant”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

We had dinner there with friends and kids during our summer holidays in Florida. Dispite our very late call to reserve a table of 9 persons, the owner accepted to keep the restaurant open and warmly welcomed us. The food was really good, belgium, french style and we enjoyed the special attention we had from the owner that gave us some good advice on what to do in Sarasota on a week end. A place we really recommand.

“Best Mussels in Sarasota”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Antoine's is a small intimate place. Even before you sit down, you feel welcome. Olivier, the host and owner treats diners like guests in his home. Every evening they serve a complimentary "mise en bouche". It's a little taste for your mouth before the appetizer and entree. It changes from day to day, but it's always delicious.
The menu choices, focus on modern European (not heavy sauce) selections with an emphasis on seafood. However, I must admit we go there for the mussels and fries. You get a huge pot of mussels. The twice fried fries are served in a parchment cone. Be sure to ask for the home made mayonnaise for dipping.
If you enjoy wine with your mussels, be sure to order the Schlumberger Riesling. This dry white goes perfectly with the mussels.

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

You would be hard pressed to find a better fine dining restaurant in the greater Sarasota area. From the home made bread to the exquisite dessert, EVERYTHING was fabulous! Great wine list, romantic atmosphere, perfect service. The Diver scallops and braised short ribs were to die for. Cant believe it took me a year to eat here. Kudos to Chefs Olivier and Angela. A truly Magnificent dining experience.

“Fabulous dining experience”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

My husband and I had dinner at Antoine's last and it was absolutely fabulous. It Monday, "Eat all the mussels you want" night and eat we did. There were five different choices and we tried two. The portions were huge and the flavors were delectable. The passion that Oliver and his wife have about food come as well as in the warm welcome you receive when you arrive. Their frites are the real deal and the chocolate mousse is simply outstanding. I have also had lunch there and the quiche is excellent. Going to Antoine's is truly a fabulous dining experience. My husband and I will definitely be going back!
