This is a lovely niche in downtown Sarasota. Helpful, pleasant and attentive waitstaff. Food is excellent. My companion was pleased with a steak choice and my pork dish was tasty. I would think that opening for lunch might be a great idea!

It was good. Cerviches and tiraditos were the stars of the show. A bit heavy on the vermouth in the martinis, but that is minor. Nice experience.

I love this restaurant, and so my comments come from love - please try a little harder! Your food is very good but I feel that your menu has not changed in 2 years, and I'm afraid that you'll get stagnant. Also, please work on your desserts. I had your Tres Leches Cake but it was not as good as... More

Really great restaurant with unique offerings. We loved the cerviche and the other seafood items. Not your run of the meal place, offers many exciting dishes some highly spiced and enjoyable. Seems to appeal to a younger crowd

I have been to this restaurant three or four times and each time, I am delighted with the presentation of each course. The food itself has also been excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I ordered the skirt steak and it was cooked perfectly. Every single bite I was saying, "mmmmmm!" So much flavor and it was super juicy. I really liked the vibe of the restaurant and would come back next time I'm in Florida!

After attending the Sarasota Opera on Saturday night, my man and I headed to Selva for a night cap in the bar. Our timing was great, since the late nite bar menu is served after 11 p.m. on Saturday nights. We each ordered a cocktail from Jessie the bartender. My Canadian Club Manhattan was great-well mixed with a good pour.... More

We usually get to Sarasota once or twice a year from our home in Naples. This is the second time we have been to Selva Grill and it's time I did a review. We have tried a number of the fine dining restaurants in Sarasota. So far, Selva is our favorite by a pretty good margin. Here are the four... More
