Fantastic restaurant. It's difficult to distinguish between the food and the service level. Both are off the charts good. Highly recommend Made!

Server was very attentive during our meal. However she was going off shift and we were asked to settle our bill while we were enjoying our company after we finished eating. This has happened before so it is not the server. Is there some way to have someone else close out a ticket when the customer and not the staff is ready to leave? In any case, the food was great and MADE remains one of your favorite local spots.

First visit. Very casual atmosphere, no real ambiance. Tempting menu with a lot of cool offerings. Very good burger! I’ve had several unsuccessful burger experiences in Sarasota, so finally! Special artisan cocktail menu intriguing and the two we ordered were delicious! However, the drinks were small-sized (with one of those giant ice cubes) at a hefty $14 price tag.

The food at MADE was delicious and the whole experience was excellent. We dined outside and there were heat lamps available to keep warm as the evening became cooler. The service was good- very attentive. My husband ordered an old fashion which came in a treasure chest with a mini smoking fire pit inside. Wonderful presentation! The pan fried cornbread and strawberry butter melted in our mouths! There is also free parking. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Amazing! All 5 of us liked what we ordered. I loved the fact that everything was sourced locally. The dishes were unique and not your standard breakfast fare. I was with my husband and kids ages 16, 13, and 11.

Menu looks great but....don’t be fooled

Ate their for Easter. We had high expectations after looking at the menu. Staff was unattentive and borderline rude. Tried to seat my 73 year Mom outside (it was cold) or at a high top table (really..almost comical) despite inside reservations. After a brief argument, hostesses moved some empty tables and sat us at a regular table.

Poached eggs were overdone and huevos rancheros had no flavor. No water or coffee refills throughout the meal. I will admit, the spicy Bloody Mary was pretty good.

Bottom Line-unless you really need a reservation, I’d look elsewhere. Too many better restaurants to eat at in downtown Sarasota, especially for the price.

We had the best waitress Chloe! She was very responsive and attentive. The food was good but not outstanding. I had the smoked chicken taco salad which was delicious. the chicken was a small portion (even when I paid for a double portion) and was a little dry. My husband had a burger but it wasn't anything special. Drinks were good and so was the beer.

A little disappointed that several items on brunch menu were unavailable --we had 1:15 reservations and were there on time. Friendly service, albeit a long wait for one of the entrees after the other two were served.

Good food and filling.

My friends and I had Sunday brunch and it was very tasty. The kitchen was having a little trouble with orders, but it did not impact us much. As long as the $3 mimosas kept flowing, we were fine with the wait. Each of us enjoyed our meals. I had the brisket Benedict. It was pretty spicy. If you like food with a kick, this plate is for you. I would go again for brunch.

What are the chances out of 100s of restaurants in SRQ, the ONE restaurant you bring your friend to for her birthday dinner is the very same restaurant her other friend took her to days earlier for a birthday dinner? Apparently REALLY good. Thank goodness, she loved it both times.
It was my first time and I really enjoyed it as well. I have tried to get in before. Either booked or unfavorable time available.
Normally when you drive by, all the outside seats are taken , especially for Brunch .This restaurant is one of those locally owned ones that locally source their ingredients.

It has also been listed as one of the Top Sarasota restaurants. Tonite it was empty and glad because many people have complained the inside noise does not allow for conversation . It being slow really allowed for us to engage in conversation with our server and get to know her personally.
Sandra was very polite and accommodating and ensured our beverages were always kept full.
We had the disco fries, Caesar salad , the MADE meatloaf with Brussels and Mashed potatoes . Full of flavor and big enough to box up 1/2 for a snack or light lunch the next day. My only suggestion would be ( and I told our server, I would not recommend putting the meatloaf on top of the Brussel sprouts and wish that I had known that. Because I would have asked for them to be put on the side . Brussels have a distinct taste and the description of theirs sounds delicious but its taste is hidden with the meatloaf laying on top.
Great service , great food and nice ambiance for any kind of dinner group. Definitely recommend this local gem in Downtown SRQ.

Food was okay. Chicken was a little dry. Honestly though, this is a lunch place not a dinner place. Most entree options were sandwiches. And if you don’t like collared greens don’t go here. That’s the only vegetable option they have, and they put it on everything.

The menu at Made is beyond fantastic. We all had a hard time deciding what to order. And everything was incredible. My tequila based cocktail had ice infused with lemon and cilantro...in the ice cube! Gorgeous, inventive and delicious.

We loved the fried tomatoes and bread service. The tater tots are the best I’ve had. The burger was out if this world as was the fried chicken/French toast dish. And the fish tacos and poke bowl were also top notch as was the vegetarian option tacos. Good for kids who are adventurous eaters but they also have a small kids menu.

We sat outside with heaters but the interior is adorable. I would return to this place in a second. We loved it!!
