The duck is my husbands favorite and it didn’t disappoint. The grouper special wasn’t special. It was just ok. The duck however is worth traveling for. We have been coming for the last 30 years. The same chef has been there. We will return.

First time at this fine restaurant. It came highly recommended from several friends and family. It certainly lived up to the high expectations. The food was amazing! My husband and I enjoyed everything about our dinner including the friendly and attentive service from Billy and Ian!

Waiter could have been more attentive. He had a table of 6 near us and spent way more time with them. We had to get his attention to order more drinks and get the check.

The food was excellent and the chef was very nice. Unfortunately the server we had did not seem to like our ethnicity. I hope other servers in the restaurant are not like that as the food and ambiance were great.

While this is a lovely venue with upscale ambience and a lavish-looking menu (with prices to match), the execution was circa 1970 and the service was only so-so. Plates were loaded with the kind of parsley garnish you'd see in an old time Vegas steakhouse, flavors were bland and/or mediocre (my shrimp pasta dish tasted like institutional cafeteria soup), and the overall energy of the place just felt dated and lifeless. Our waiter barely made eye contact and seemed to be inconvenienced by our very presence there. I've been here before, NOT during the pandemic, and it was better in the past. But this was borderline depressing.

Wonderful meal and great atmosphere. Coming from out of town we didn’t know what to expect but they exceeded any expectations. Owners even took the time to strike up a conversation at the bar while we were waiting on our table. Nice touch and very personable.

Birthday Dinner! Excellent food. Great ambiance and staff were very attentive. Caesar salad was phenomenal and made the old school way. It was a very large portion for a salad. Peppered steak was incredible as was the duck. Chef Raymond Persia lily came to the table to ensure the evening and food were excellent. We then went upstairs for dessert. Don’t miss their selection! You will want to come back soon!

We've been there often but this was the first time since the Chinese virus. The ambiance that was worth the high cost was virtually gone. Masks, cheap paper table mats with printed menus , inaudible mumbles of servers trying to communicate through masks, rushed presentations to avoid contact, no opportunity to peruse the wine list--all these took away from the experience. The food, as usual, was superb, but the overall night was a letdown. We will be back, but not until the restrictions they are forced to operate under are gone.

So intimate and romantic. All that would have made it better was a violinist or a pianist taking requests. We look forward to returning when you have music upstairs. Food was heavenly. Chef visit a classic touch. Table by the window a romantic haven. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

It has been a while since we have been in the dining room. They have done a great job with making sure the guests are social distancing. The dinner we had was excellent! We both had the caesar salad and my husband had the peppercorn steak with homemade steak sauce and I had the duck. Everything was fresh and delicious. The steak was the best we have had. Don't pass this gem up! Fabulous

Love the ambiance, it felt very intimate and cozy, classy. Had an excellent meal, great wine selection and then went upstairs to the dessert section of the restaurant. No wonder they have many decades worth of awards, wish it was closer to where I live, went here for a special occasion during a vacation. Was highly recommended to us and we will do the same . Thank you for providing such a nice venue for people to enjoy.

We were celebrating our daughter's graduation. The restaurant is old and tired, the carpeting is ancient. We were seated in a corner of a small room with zero atmosphere. The menu was printed on a paper placematt but did not include descriptions of the food items so we had to use our phones to look up the menu. This is considered a fine dining restaurant with menu prices to match The food was not up to par considering the high price and the service was very casual. We called in advance to make sure the dessert bar was open and would include all the items specifically the flambe item of the day. When we arrived, this was not the case. A major disappointment. We will not return.

I consider this to be one of the best restaurants in Sarasota. The ambience is homey and the food is outstanding. If I have anything negative to say, I would say that the portions are almost too large. However, there is always the doggie bag!!!
