Great local spot with an upscale feel. Wide variety of choices including an excellent Osso Buco. Was our second annual visit while vacationing in the area and we plan to return again. The wait staff was attentive but unobtrusive. Loved how the meal ended with a lovely dark chocolate bite for each member of the party. Easy to find parking nearby. Fun atmosphere and good experience!
“OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT”
This is a very nice restaurant in downtown Sarasota. Not only is it in a quiet location with on street parking available, but it is very nicely appointed with a small quiet bar and outdoor seating available. In side divided into separate dining rooms so it is never too noisy. Open for lunch and dinner. Food is very nicely prepared and as visually appealing as it is tasty! Menu offers something for everyone. This is an upscale restaurant and is not inexpensive. Valet parking available.
“It was a delightful evening.”
The crab cakes and escargot were very good. The lamb, shrimp, pepper steak and crab cakes all were excellent. The wine list very good and service wonderful. It was a delightful evening.
