We went to Burns Court last night because we were told they had dinner with live jazz. We made a reservation and all that was available was seats at the bar. Fine with us, we love sitting at the bar. Ari took such good care of us. The wine selection is out of sight and the food was great. We... More

My mom introduced me to this cafe and wine bar. We just had some coffees and dessert but I can't wait to go back for an evening visit. The atmosphere is really nice with a very European/New Orleans type vibe that is pretty hard to find in Sarasota. The gentleman that served us was charming and friendly and our desserts... More

We had just arrived in Sarasota and needed somewhere to eat and came across this cafe. The Jazz was just about to start so we gave it a go. The atmosphere was great, as was the Jazz. We ordered one salad starter to share and then two Paella. I had a beer and my wife a glass of wine and... More

burns Court Cafe is a nice intimate jazz spot on Saturday night. The food is deplorable. Having said that, perhaps I should say the evening food is deplorable but if you are lucky enough to want quiche or a homemade pastry then I would say good.

Best part of the evening was the Cuban entertainer on Tuesday night....great music and quite a showman! Also, loved the pate! My friend ordered octopus and it tasted spoiled...so she had a mushroom quiche instead that was fair.

We couldn't even get past the first item on the menu: the Rueben sounded so good, on marbles Rye and with a side salad (greens, tomato and balsamic vinaigrette), that we both ordered the same thing and sat outside. There are no bells and whistles, but you get delicious food, very friendly service, and a nice place to fall back... More
