The inside of the restaurant is very pretty they usually have a piano player and the atmosphere is nice however ........the food doesn't match the quality of the expectation we had. My friend ordered the ceviche and did not like it at all I'm vegetarian and there was very little to choose from but what I did have was just... More

Skip the over-priced small entrees. You'll walk away hungry! We had the salmon-a one inch scrid. More sauce than fish. Four stalks of asparagus. Never again.

We had a delicious meal tonight at this very popular spot. The restaurant is very attractive in its decor. They offer a wide variety of entrees as well as tasty soups and appetizers. I had onion soup first which was excellent followed by salmon with a wonderful citrus glaze. My husband had the prime rib which he loved and our... More

We always make a point to come here every time we're in Sarasota. This visit did not disappoint. I love this place. Even if it's crowded, it never has that "noisy restaurant" feel. You can still have a quiet conversation. Even with the live music from the bar. The lighting is low and very romantic.

Very nice restaurant with excellent food. Serve both lunch and dinner. Varied menu with more than adequate wine choices. Our service was superior with an attentive staff.

A lovely, warm atmosphere for adults who like a sophisticated, yet not fussy, evening. The booths in the main dining room are perfect! The food is locally sourced and delicious. They also don't give you over-sized, mammoth meals like some restaurants do. Service is always excellent and professional. The bar is a particular favorite! Bartenders are attentive and professional, music... More

My wife and I love this place. A sophisticated atmosphere (but not snobby or stodgy), a wonderful menu, very good wine list, and truly professional servers. Also one of the few restaurants (let alone one with live music) where you can still hold a conversation at normal volume. We have been a number of times and each time found a... More
