Great salad bar, including caviar! We had a very good experience marred only by a subpar dessert (which was removed from the bill without our even asking). Our server was excellent as were the other staff members. Great bartender too! Go there.

We had great food and drinks at happy hour - sat outside on the terrace with gorgeous views of longboat key. Would definitely go back but wouldn't pay the regular prices for food and drinks as it's very pricey. Thanks for the happy hour option!

While the food was very good and the view excellent, the service portion of the meal made it quite a disappointment. We went with another couple during Savor Sarasota Week Restaurant Week where local restaurants offer a special prix-fixe menu for lunch and/or dinner depending...More
