A restaurant for a special nightFinally, a restaurant for an "occasion"! Excellent service, food, and ambience made the celebrations of our birthdays perfect. The staff was just the correct amount of friendly, courteous, and discreet. We will be back for every special occasion.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service superbGreat dining experience, replete with conscientious service and enjoyed trying my French with the wait staff. Not as fond of all the white curtains. Seems a view of the outdoors would be more pleasant. Otherwise top notch!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBy far our favorite restaurantBy far our favorite restaurant in Greater Sarasota. Always a fantastic dinner. Equal to the best of NY or SF. Reasonably priced for the quality. Jose and Victoria are simply delightful.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCassis.The best place faraway for the quality of food.

Food is superb as is the service and ambience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want something specialIf you want something special this is the place in Sarasota. Better than the Beach Bistro!!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an exquisite meal DinedAlways an exquisite meal Dined there probably 10-15 times and it's always great4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat french foodThe french food is very good, service great, romantic atmosphere and overall very enjoyable. One quibble was we sent the shrimp appetizer back to the chef as we didn't think it tested right. They did not take our input well. Classic French chef I guess.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother excellent dining experienceAnother excellent dining experience. A consistent special meal.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench FoodThe place could use some added touches, some updating as it seems like it never changed from its opening. Is there such a thing as too quiet. Maybe some white noise would keep you from whispering so others won't hear your conversation. The food is amazing in that, while a beautiful blend of flavors, you marvel at how those modest portions fill you completely. The interlude courses are always a nice tough and keep the focus on the food. Always pricey, but for an occasion, it fits the bill.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a place I've beenThis is a place I've been eating at since it's opening Light's out I have 30 years of owning top echelon restaurants and this is France inLongboat Outstanding Chef wife owners Can't say enough4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAgain and AgainWe thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Maison Blanche. Not only did the restaurant live up to our expectaions, it surpassed them! We are pleased to have discovered this little white gem tucked away on Longboat Key. We will be returning Again and Again.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMScrumptious!Another outstanding experience here. It was Easter Sunday and I had the lobster risotto followed by the rack of lamb--both were scrumptious. We shared two desserts which were a perfect top off to a perfect dinner. Service as always was excellent.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMReputation over-exaggeratedHighly overpriced. Inflexible menu. Side salads only available thru price fixe. If you had food allergies you were plum out of luck, food was not spectacular exc. for my husbands short ribs ( portion size was offensive considering the price). Very disappointed.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food & service!Excellent food & service! Expensive but you get a lot 'extras', making it relatively well priced. We shell return!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best restaurantsOne of the best restaurants in Sarasota. In the middle of the dining room, there is a huge pot of large white orchids( phalaenopsis) two words to describe the decor UNDERSTATED CLASS. The food is consistently good. The dishes presented by Chef Jose are authentic French, and very refined. The Cote de boeuf is especially good, as is my personal favorite the Mediterranean Sea bass. If you like Grand Marnier, the soufflé is to die for .3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were outstanding. We were greeted and served with great professionalism. We hope to go back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect, Again!Once again, we had a terrific "last night" dinner on our vacation. Everything was simply perfect!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMagnifique Maison BlancheAlthough this restaurant featured a minimalist contemporary decor the interior was definitely warm and inviting. Service was impeccable, attentive but not overbearing..and the food was outstanding. In fact all of us at the table want the short rib recipe. The restaurant works perfectly for both a business meeting or a romantic night for two and the noise level was conducive to actually carrying out a conversation..but of course it is the food that was the star attraction.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best restaurantsOne of the best restaurants we've ever visited. We'd put it up there almost on a level with Per Se and French Laundry. Everything was perfect!!!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a special experienceOur dining experience at Maison Blanche was outstanding and one of the most enjoyable we have had in several years, including meals in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, London, and Paris. The dining room is tranquil and beautifully appointed. Our server was engaging and knowledgeable. And the tasting menu was superb! Each course was delicious and beautifully presented, and the wine choice was wonderful. We only wish that we lived closer so that we could dine here more frequently.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining on Long Boat KeyMaison Blanche is a superb fine-dining experience on Long Boat Key. The French-oriented menu is broad enough to offer diners a good selection. The dishes are prepared with great skill and served graciously. Highly recommended!3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNot to be missedThis is, by far, our favorite restaurant in the Sarasota area. MrSeriousFoodie and DinnerDoctor have dined here many times, and it never disappoints. We always look forward to the wonderful treatment by all the wait staff, and especially from Victoria who runs the restaurant with her chef husband Jose Martinez. We are impressed with their philosophy of value wines, impeccably matched with Chef Martinez's food. Can't miss dishes, always on the menu, are the suckling pig (best we've ever had) and the sweetbreads (again, the best we ever had). We give this place high marks because of the restaurant's consistency. It just misses getting our highest marks because the menu does not vary much, and the desserts need help.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding in every respect...MaisOutstanding in every respect...Maison Blanche is a culinary delight!2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSo very nice to have a placeSo very nice to have a place right on Longboat that makes you feel so special just by eating there!
