I like a restaurant that allows conversation at the table, without needing to strain. That's not possible at Selva Grill. The background noise generated by the other patrons and, I believe, some Muzak on top, made conversation very difficult and substantially diminished our enjoyment of...More

My wife and I love Latin inspired food and were excited to try this restaurant. We were impressed with not only the flavors of the food but the presentation of each dish was well thought out and very special. The wine menu was also inspiring,...More

i would give it 4.5; 5 for service, 4 for food. Food was very good, but service was excellent. It was also a very nice restaurant overall. I would go back.

Found this place on Open Table and booked a few hours before we arrived. It's located in a wonderful walkable area of Sarasota with loads of food choices around. We enjoyed two of the ceviche starters. The tuna and watermelon was a nice flavor combination...More

This place was fantastic. Walking on Main Street with my wife on a Sunday evening. This was the most crowded place on the strip for good reason. Seated promptly at the bar. Excellent Selva Classic martinis with delicious blue cheese olives. We had several small...More
