On a remarkably chilly evening, we opted to be indoors rather than our favorite spot on the patio. The dining room was packed, but service didn't suffer. Upscale dining, fairly pricey menu, but worth the splurge. Go early...avoid the crowds if possible....you'll enjoy it. Valet...More

This is a "special occasion" place on the intracoastal waterway in Siesta Key. Fine Dining at it's best, indoor & outdoor seating (under cover or right on the dock). Marvelous food, great service. We go there every year. Valet parking, reservations strongly recommended.

One of my favorite restaurants ever! The setting is gorgeous...always try to get outside dining! Main courses were delectable and key lime pie for dessert was perfect!

No we are unrelated. Originally that was a family member of the previous owner here. Unfortunately that restaurant changed hands and went out of business.

Ophelia's on the Bay is one of Sarasota's premier fine dining waterfront restaurants. Enjoy beautiful vistas of Little Sarasota Bay, from the floor-to-ceiling windows that line the dining room. Or join us for al fresco dining on our open-air patio, as the dolphins and manatee swim by. Winner of many awards both locally and nationally, including an Excellence rating from Zagat as well as being listed as the number one restaurant in America in Power and Motoryacht Magazine for dock and dine. Ophelia's on the Bay has also been voted most romantic, best waterfront and best restaurant with a view by its loyal customers. The menu changes nightly using fresh and seasonal ingredients, fresh fish flown in from all over the world and specialty meats. There is certainly something for every palate! We feature an extensive wine list, specialty martinis, as well as a full bar. Family owned and operated for over 27 years, we have an experienced staff that prides itself on exemplary service.
