We moved to Saint Pete 2 1/2 years ago from Ft. Lauderdale. This is by far the best restaurant we've been to. My wife and I are former international banking executives and traveled a lot and always felt that Peruvian Cuisine is the best. Selva is our go-to restaurant from now on! The food was delectable. The paella my wife had was perfect, as was my Chilean Sea Bass. Our daughter had the Malbec infused short ribs that were simply amazing. We topped it off with the white/chocolate mousse for my wife's birthday celebration. Our server, Kendra was exceptionally amazing. More

Italian | Sarasota, Sarasota / Bradenton

Good entree but the prices are a bit high for ordinary Italian menu. Bread was a bit dry and balsamic vinegar was very acidic. The seat yourself where ever attitude seemed too casual for the restaurant. Veal special was good but to put an up charge if you wanted pasta instead of potato was a bit ridiculous and cheap on the part of the restaurant. More

Fondue | Sarasota, Sarasota / Bradenton

Once again, the Melting Pot delivers. We were celebrating twin graduations with mother in laws from out of town coming in. Set us up with perfect table. Manager addressed us like old friends. Knew my wife's preferred drink order and that I don't drink. Blended my 3 kids in perfectly. Assisted greatly with my MIL who had never been to a Melting Pot and is mostly blind and physically disabled. My wife and family have been there several times from romantic date nights, to dinner with friends, and celebrations. Yet I am always amazed with the staff from top to bottom. The only issues I had is the dressing/sauces came out in these metal ramekins. I liked the size of the container but you can imagine the number of little individual dishes of sauce spread around the table with 7 people sitting at it. It seemed remarkable inefficient for the staff, led to a lot of reaching and confusion at the table, and just didn't match with the rest of the table settings and ambience. My son and I, in discussing the issue, thought that integrating the sauces into the plate itself would be a great idea. The plate already has a big space for the cooked food and then the sauces. If you removed some space from the flat plate side and enlarged the indents where the sauces went, you could cut down on costs in hard goods and increased efficiency. Anyway, another phenomenal outing to Melting Pot and hats off to your staff. More

Our 1st time dining here, we appeared to be the early arrivals (6pm Res.) which was OK, we were seated inside in the heart of 'antica", a nice old fashioned decor tastefully arranged, the atmosphere was quite genteel initially but did get somewhat louder as the room filled with patrons, as we were at the end of our meal we were not bothered bythe overly loud couple who appeared to be attempting to broadcast their selections, not just for the room but for every nook & cranny in the restaurant. Overall it was a nicedining experience, very good food, nicely served & presented by our attentive and pleasant waitress. More

Discover Sarasota

There are two times of year that define life in the Sarasota area: peak and off seasons. Population numbers may spike by about 20 percent in the peak season, and the change is evident as commercial activity ramps up. The local dining scene is especially susceptible to the changing seasons. Peak season is the best time to sample the diverse cuisine, which ranges from soul food at hole-in-the-wall diners to fusion menus in hip bistros. There are also plenty of fine dining options at white-tablecloth restaurants. Sip on a good wine while enjoying fresh cheeses or stop by the local pub to sample one of 50 different beers and chow down on thin-crust pizza. You're sure to get your fill of fresh seafood in this Florida town, or maybe you prefer vegetarian dishes featuring super foods like quinoa, goji berries, and sweet potatoes.
