Maison Blanche is truly one of the most outstanding restaurants along the Tampa Bay/Sarasota coast. I initially was a patron of their original location in Paris for many years and was delighted to find them again in Long Boat Key. The extraordinary quality of the French modern cuisine and wines, the fine service and refined, contemporary decor make for an exceptional evening for any resident or visitor to the area.
Excellent service, exquisite food!
This may be one of the best meals my husband and I have ever had. From beginning to end our experience, food and wine pairings were amazing! Can’t wait to return.
Superb from the moment we walked through the door until we finished our after-dinner Sauternes. The quality, flavors and presentation of the meal was outstanding. The service was professional and impeccable, the ambience understated elegance. So looking forward to our next visit.
shockingly good. by far the best food and experience in the sarasota area and probably SW florida. modern french served with style. not much more expensive than other sarasota and island choices but way better. my sea bass entree was equal to top notch paris or new york. intimate quiet dining room. a very very special place.
We have been to Maison Blanche many times, and it never disappoints. This is the best restaurant in the Sarasota area. Chef Jose's excellent combinations of flavors are a treat for the palate. Service is uniformly excellent and the ambiance is lovely. It is rather expensive and/but remains an excellent value. We recommend Maison Blanche without reservation.
A defining French restaurant.
In an experience of over 15 years we have
never doubted Jose’s ability to create the defining French Cousine
The wine list,particularly the white and red burgundy,is unique to this area and there are many rare gems.
Lovely food and excellent service in a beautiful peaceful atmosphere.
Delicious in every bite! Beautiful setting! Excellent staff!
Fabulous and professional!
We have been here before and alway look forward to going back. During the week is a better time because the dining room is small . Great food and service . 5 stars
Interesting dining experience. Old school French . Lobster ravioli was the hit of the dinner! Dining chairs are a bit odd, menus looked like they were glued in place by a kindergarten class. Wine list was very nice and varied. Waiters French accent came and went. Red Snapper and Salmon were both very good, pig was meh. Overall good evening.
We love dining at Maison Blanche. My husband loves the chanterelle risotto and the beef filet with peppercorn sauce. I love exploring the menu. I recommend exploring the menu, every dish is delicious, try a different each time. Be sure to save room for dessert. The wine list is also very nice, something for everyone. The staff are terrific, attentive and very knowledge.
We brought our daughter with us this time. She had never been to Maison Blanche. She told us the sea bass was the best fish she's ever eaten. As always, the food, service and atmosphere was impeccable. An amazing restaurant!
It was goid
Best restaurant in Sarasota area!
Having moved to Sarasota from the Washington DC area a few years ago, we have sampled all of the top restaurants in Sarasota. Maison Blanche is one of the 2 best. The cuisine is French cooking at its best with creativity and perfect preparation. The management and staff are outstanding and the room has an understated elegance. Value and price compare favorably with the best restaurants in DC. It is always the right choice for a special occasion.
Absolutely the finest restaurant in the area. Every course is excellent. Wine offerings are broad and deep. Service is impeccable
I brought as my guest a wonderful person, a Holocaust surviver. Unfortunately the filet mignon he requested was not raw but well done.
This was our 3rd visit to Madison Blanche. The service, ambiance, and food are consistently superior.
My niece and I loved our dinner! Victoria is amazing and helped us greatly with the menu and suggestions! Thank you, Victoria!
This is a very good restaurant. The food is lovely. So are the surroundings & ambiance. Full French service!!
The curtains are a clever way to sound damper.
Be prepared for some sticker shock. As advertised this is a $$ restaurant.
A lovely restaurant for a special event. Our evening which was for a Birthday Celebration was shared with
3 other birthday guests.
I enjoyed myself.
Our dinner was very enjoyable. The ambience was excellent, the food was very good, and the service was polite, if a little slow.
We loved the cuisine, the ambience, our server, and our hostess.
We will return again (this was our fourth visit over the last five years).
Exceptional. We have homes in southern New Jersey and longboat key and have been fortunate to travel most of the world. Maison Blanche was simply exceptional. Obviously the outside in an old condo is deceiving. Interior is by a French architect and truly elegant. Dinner from start to finish was one of the the best meals we have ever had any where in the world. Appetizers of the tart and lobster bisque ravioli were sensational. Entrees of sea bass and snapper were beyond delicious and desserts , soufflé and apple tart crisp were all memorable. For the level of food the value is good and we will make sure to include this as a regular dining spot. We simply cannot rave enough,WOW!!
Maison Blanche never disappoints. Five stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great food and wonderful service!
Just the finest restaurant in the whole area. Fancy expensive and worth it
Our first time at Maison Blanche. Our Waiter from Belgium, was super friendly and knew the menu well. Our food seemed very fresh and was hot, which is important to us. The cheese for dessert was OUTSTANDING and the Latte' was the best.
Food excellent, service disorganized and inattentive
French food is my favorite cuisine. Chef Joseph is a master at getting it right. He is a top rated chef as well. The wine has something to suit most anyone!
Probably the best restaurant in Florida - superior to many of the best restaurants in New York
This could be the best fine dining restaurant in Sarasota. The dining experience is superb. The dining room is lovely: rather spartan, except for the plateau in the center of the room which has a large array of flowers that change with the season and add color, form, and a lovely focal point. The
service is attentive but not overbearing. The food is superb. The wine list has an excellent selection with price point for all tastes.
Great experience just like the last time we were the last time. it is expensive but we'll worth it.
Exquisite! We loved everything about this restaurant. The prix fix was very reasonably priced for what was offered.
It was wonderful!
On a scale of 1-10 it was an 11.
Very good dinner. Service was excellent! Interesting menu and good domestic and French wine selection. This is the best restaurant on Longboat Key!
Although expensive, food was very very good. Attention to detail was impeccable
