The food as amazing overall, especially the fried chicken. However, the cheese steak sandwich dissapointed all 5 of us when we tried it.

We always eat here when we're in Sarasota. Great food! However, it's time for them to replace the chairs outside. They are unraveling and not comfortable.

Well....reviews looked really good for this place. Interesting menu with a Southern American influence. Food was truly not good - texture, flavor rather insipid. Service was fine and atmosphere good. In general, we were disappointed.

I have been a few times and the food is always good. The only complaint I have is that I normally get the Duck Confit sandwich, but apparently that is now only on the lunch menu. While the other sandwiches are still available for dinner, for whatever reason the duck is not. This was a huge disappointment, as I was there to entertain someone from out of town and had talked up the sandwich quite a bit before arriving. If this is seen by the restaurant, then I hope that they consider adding the duck confit to the dinner menu.

Amazing brunch - great selection, all dishes were wonderful - French toast, breakfast tacos, omelette all hit the spot. Our server (Joya) was a delight. This was a perfect Mother’s Day brunch. It was a table of 7 and all were delighted.

The food, service and setting were wonderful. We have food allergies and the waitress was very patient going over the menu or asking the chef about certain dishes. We had plenty of choices and enjoyed every bite of our meal. We look forward to our next visit and trying some of their other dishes.

We took our son here for dinner when he was visiting from the west coast. We had loved the food on a previous visit and knew it would be a great place to take him. He loved the flavors and the wind range of cocktails! It was a hit!

We arrived close to closing yet they were friendly, welcoming and the service was superb. Add to that the exceptional food and drinks and we found a winner!! The disco fries were to die for, as was the margarita with mango popsicle. Everything was just divine!

The Brunch at MADE is not to be missed! The BGFT Benedict is soooo good - our party also had the MADE Brunch burger and the vegetarian breakfast tacos. You'd better arrive hungry though - portions are very generous! Service is super friendly and attentive, and while they have the normal brunch mimosas, the cocktails menu is too interesting to pass up. Will return again (and again)

Was expecting a brunch on Easter Sunday but it was called a brunch item selected from same menu. Eggs arrived cold for all 3 of us, never got glass of ice requested, had to ask 2 times for a steak knife but the manager paid for our cocktail prior to eating. Noisy, no tablecloths, difficult to choose from menu.

We chose MADE based on reviews to meet some new friends and we were not disappointed. Service was great, the Disco Fries, well lets just say we had to restrain ourselves and share. Our friends both had salmon, which they said was wonderful. I had the scallops while my husband had the chicken stuffed chicken. Food was very good and the corn risotto was fantastic. I highly recommend MADE for great food and service. But, bring a sweater if you plan on eating inside.

Location, value and service is very important to me and they have it all. This is not my first trip and will not be my last. I am a very impatient person, this Restaurant is my kind of place. The appetizers come out quick and they give us a chance to enjoy them before out main course is presented to us. I love it and highly recommend it.

Great corn dog appetizer. Scallops were very good. Fish tacos fell short of expectations. The smelly water was a turn off and never should have been poured. After we complained we were offered bottled water. Invest in a water filter.

We had been here for brunch and came for early dinner before going to a movie. Waiter was attentive and amenable to special requests. Wanted plain mac&cheese without meat. He suggested not ordering second dish saying it would be too much food. We lingered over coffee. Very pleasant experience.

Wonderful comfort mood menu as conceived by a CIA Chef! Mark Woodruff’s interpretation of a 4-meat meatloaf and a chicken fried steak with a kick are both culinary creations AND delicious!
Purple deviled eggs sound a little strange, but the taste is amazing! Just order them.
Theo was an over-the-top experienced waiter who knew the ingredients and preparation of the menu items as well as specials. He made the dining experience smooth from beginning to end.
It was our first time at Made. We will definitely return. This place is a true gem.

Made has incredible food and selections. Their fried chicken, collard greens, Brussel sprouts are delicious. The onion rings and cheesy tater tots are scrumptious.
The last time we visited there the service was terrible with several calls made to the management. This time are service was much better. The waiter was polite and knowledgeable about the menu. Only flaw, he could have checked in a little more frequently. We had to ask for more beverages a couple of times.
I am happy the service at Made is starting to catch to their food!

Everything was well made, presented, delicious and great service staff. Only suggestion would be that with a limited menu, there were several dishes that featured bacon or jalapeños and some not eating those items would have only a few options left to chose from (at least from the dinner menu).

I requested outdoor seating on my reservation and manager said he didn’t see that. After looking he said “ Oh, I guess you did request that, but I missed it, sorry”. Didn’t make any attempt to correct the oversight. I ordered a duck BLT. The duck was excellent but the toasted bread was burnt and the tomato was very under ripe, green in the middle even. A BLT is pretty simple ingredients, so they should at least be good ingredients. It just seems like if they are busy, they don’t have any attention to detail. In the past I had been very happy with this restaurant. Maybe just need to avoid the busy brunch times.
