This is a great place for foodies, with the most charming 'old florida house' atmosphere. Don't forget to save room for dessert! Vegetarian friendly. Also, pricey.

We were quickly welcomed to the quaint little restaurant. Every dish had the perfect amount of flavor and portions. You know when dining here that everything is fresh and carefully made. Service was excellent. We'll return many times! Music was great too!!

Sorry you were disappointed. We wish you would have said something so we could have seated you elsewhere (away from the music) and fixed the meal issues. Thanks for the feedback.

yes -- we don't add seasonings to most of our proteins until they're ordered. Just tell the server that you want no salt in the preparation. Thanks!

The food is individually prepared so I think they could accommodate a low sodium request. Call first and ask.

Arts & Eats Restaurant and Gallery, located in the center of the Village of the Arts in Bradenton, Florida, features an international menu created by Chef Jim Copening, and broken dish mosaics and jewelry by Donna Slawsky. Dine on the enclosed porch or main dining room of the newly remodeled 1920s bungalow, on the front lawn, or in the shaded backyard "park" graced by a huge banyan tree. Donna and Jim have created a colorful restaurant and gallery that is casually elegant with an emphasis on great food, international flavors and lots of love. We also cater events.
