If your a local or not, this place is great for a stroll with friends, to grab some good food at one of the restaurants or do a little window shopping!

St Armand's is a great place to visit especially if you like to shop! There is also a wonderful variety of restaurants, varying in ethnicity and cost. So many to choose from; it would take awhile to go through them all! Parking is a challenge but worth the visit.

St Armands is always a good stop. Plenty of shops and dining options. Might be boring for young teens and under but there is no lack of places to poke your head into.

We went to St Armand's for two dinners and for day time shopping. It was packed with others doing the same. Clearly a place with nice shops, good gelato, and good restaurants. The traffic was heavy and parking is an issue. But, with perseverance and luck we found spots. If you are in the Sarasota area, this is an area... More

I've been to St. Armand's Circle many times with my family and I've always had an enjoyable time. We've eaten at the Columbia (delicious!!) and gotten ice cream and sweets at Kilwins, and picked up amazing goodies at the Spice & Tea Exchange. It's so easy to walk around with the family. I will continue to return whenever I visit.

A pet and kid friendly slice of the high life. Walk the circle, smile at the statues and window shop to your hearts content. Dine al fresco and pretend you are one of the beautiful people. Oh wait, you are there. So you ARE one of them. A great way to spend an afternoon at leisure.

Restaurants in Downtown Sarasota and the environs are better in general. It is very thick with pedestrians and parking is tight. You will enjoy more of the feel of Sarasota if you venture away from the circle and even go see Siesta Key or downtown. Go here if you need t-shirts and flip flops!

St. Armand's is always a great place to visit. Whether food or shopping, everything is there. The variety of restaurants will meet anyone's palate. The shopping is good for anyone and the weather is almost always great.
