If you are looking for a not-too-expense restaurant with a nice atmosphere and good service when you are in the Sarasota area Stonewood is a great choice. Have dined there dozens of times over the past five years. Menu has meat-fish-pasta dishes with great appetizers and yummy desserts (try the floridaorange cake).
Wine list has many bottle offerings as well as a wide selection of wines by the glass. Domestics as well as unique offerings from around the world.
Service is always consistent. Great place to hang out by the bar pre-dinner and enjoy a cocktail. Great food, great service and not too pretentious.
