We love Roessler's! We usually go for special occasions, but have been getting there more often, because the food, service and atmosphere are wonderful. Tonight our waiter was Ted and he was very helpful and attentive even though he was very busy. We never felt rushed. We sat in the fireplace room (also our favorite). The chicken was so light...

This was our first does it to Roessler's, and we will be back. Spectacular attention to detail in service, food quality and presentation. Expensive and well worth the price. Excellent wine selection.

I had not been to this restaurant in years- it was just not a convenient location. Then I moved and started hearing good reviews so I went there with a group of six. The setting is a huge surprise - really lovely! Small bar and three dining areas, one of which can be used for a private party. We dined... More

My wife and I had previously eaten in the main dining room, and noticed the smaller bistro area with more limited (and cheaper) menu just inside the front door. We tried that on this visit and were quite happy with the choice. They do a 3 course menu with just 3 or 4 selections for $29, a great value for... More

Always a fantastic treat. We have been enjoying meals there for over 20 years. Everytime we leave we say "This place is so good....Can't wait until we come back."

Roessler's limited menu is always dependably good. The entrees our party of six had were all very tasty. The sides sometimes are a bit mundane. For example, five of us had spinach as a side, and it tasted basically like plain boiled spinach. Service can sometimes be spotty. On our most recent visit, our server was more chatty than efficient.

Good food, generous drinks, very good service. The grounds are beautiful. It's a nice place for an upscale meal with traditional service.

Been there many times and it is still a fine restaurant. The facility is nice and is well run. This is a good place for friends or family. It is a formal dining room (table cloths and napkins) that is very clean and well maintained. The food was pretty good. Of the six meals served only one wasn't up to... More

It was my wife's birthday and she has been asking about going to Roessler's for quite some time. This restaurant has been a staple of fine dining in Sarasota for decades. I had not been there since I was a kid, over 20years ago. Our dinner began with the 7pm reservation that he made 3 days prior. It was a... More

First visit but won't be our last! News Years Eve dinner included a special price fixe menu nut I believe most of the items are on their regular menu as well. Don,to think you could go wrong with anything. We ate in their smallest room, the Wine Room and after looking in the main dining room, we would prefer where... More
