Very disappointed after hearing such positive feedback from locals. We were totally underwhelmed.
Wonderful service, fantastic food and pretty surroundings. Always a great experience
We always enjoy dining at Maison Blanche and think it is the best restaurant in the Sarasota area.
The food is delicious, the wine list incredible, the ambience elegant and the service outstanding.
Very good service and well prepared food. I will happy go back to taste the rest of the menu.
As always outstanding service and communication from Victoria. We use Maison Blanc for all our special occasions.
It was my sisters birthday! We have a wonderful evening. We had been in Paris in March and had met a Maître d’ on a dinner cruise on the Seine who had worked with the chef in a past life! We were so excited to find this little hidden gem in our home town, at the recommendation of someone 6000 miles away!
Service was impeccable!
Food was amazing. We had “the best soup in the world”, as one of the servers told us. The mushroom soup, you must order this! On feature was an asparagus soup that was out of this world as well. It had prices of asparagus as well as diced kalamata olives. A green salad. Seared ahi tuna that melted in your mouth and salmon with zucchini that was amazing as well!
The ambiance was just perfect as well. It’s a small establishment but long white curtains surround you and a huge floral centerpiece is center stage. Elegant!
I highly recommend this restaurant! You won’t be disappointed!
Went for our 25 th anniversary dinner. Food and service were fantastic
Sublime food and service, as always. A very special place.
One of the finest restaurants anywhere
Amazing meal from the former Michelin-starred Chef...we drove 1.5 hours to come to dinner and it was totally worth it. Best meal i've had in the CFL area....
The food was delicious but some of it was somewhat overpriced.
Loved the quiet. So easy to carry on a conversation without constantly having to ask ‘What?’
Lighting was very low and frankly gave an aura of dusky S opposed to romantic. Because the restaurant was so draped , it felt somewhat claustrophobic.
Decor a bit dated.
Our server was delightful and very attentive.
Love this restaurant...
Maison Blanche has become a favorite destination for us. Top notch food and service combine for a wonderful experience. I have to remind myself to slow down when eating there as there is no rushing about and service is done professionally and at a reasonable pace for a 5 star restaurant.
Off the charts!
Great food,quality. Somewhat lacking in ambiance and decor could be updated.
We had a very romantic evening. The food was excellent
The ambiance was subtle and elegant
The food and service was fantastic . We always have a remarkably great experience. We have been going for years and have never been disappointed. You will enjoy the fine dinning experience!!
Consistantly the best food in Sarasota! They never disappoint!
Delicious food, lovely and polite staff, and all around a peaceful atmosphere inside. The prices are very fair for what you get, great value. I will warn first time diners not to be startled by the humble hotel that the restaurant seems to be physically connected to. Once you get inside, everything about the meal will blow away your expectations.
Food was awesome, service excellent, ambiance great
I have been to this restaurant several times and the food is of highest quality along with everything else. This is a great restaurant for special occasions because it isn’t cheap but worth it.
This restaurant is located across from a Publix/CVS shopping center as part of a condo or cheap hotel that is nearly invisible compared to all the grandiose places on the Key. We heard it was a great meal so we decided to try it (once we found it). It was so disappointing I don’t know where to start. Suffice it to say there’s nothing about this place worth visiting - unless you like false pretentiousness, overpriced food and white curtains to hide it all. The worst ever.
Maison Blanche is an absolute dining treasure in the Sarasota area. It just never disappoints. No matter what we have tried on the menu, it is delicious and cooked to perfection! No matter how short our visit may be in Sarasota, we always make it a point to dine at Maison Blanche. The restaurant is elegant, the food is scrumptious, it is romantic. It is truly a dining delight!
Excellent food, beautifully presented. The restaurant is beautiful, perfect for evenings, music was relaxing, dreamy and white, a bit quiet, no bar. Our server had a strange personality, he was nice, just awkward and not warm and smiley, but we don’t take it personally. We met the chef and he didn’t speak to us in French!
Best meal in years
Best restaurant in Sarasota area and best I have been to in Florida. Impeccable service. Unrivaled food. Impressive wines
The experience was wonderful from the ambiance to the delicious and unique food. Definitely a special occasion place to dine!
What a gem of fine dining! I especially love the mediterranean crispy skin sea bass. You can't go wrong with that and the lobster ravioli appetizer. Both of these dishes are excellent. We will continue to return.
The food is exquisite, and the service divine. Add a fabulous wine list, and you can't ask for anything more!
The food and presentation were wonderful. We appreciated the attentive, but unobtrusive service. The music could be heard but the atmosphere is peaceful and everyone was totally able to hear the conversation around the table.
Every detail of this dining experience was outstanding. Each offering is perfectly prepared and presented. You simply feel the love that the owners have for their life’s work. We try to make Maison Blanche dining fit into our travel plans when we are in Sarasota.
This is a special place. The food, service and ambiance are outstanding.
Jose Martinez and his family elegantly serve the finest cuisine in southwest Florida without doubt. This restaurant is always our special occasion number 1!!
A well deserved reputation as one of the finest restaurants.
Great quality food - which can be challenging to find in FL sometimes...but not in Longboat Key!
The food and atmosphere at Mason Blanche was amazing. I ordered the fresh fish special and it was delicious. We also ordered the chocolate soufflé for dessert. I would highly recommend this restaurant and it was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary.
Excellent Food and Service
Maison Blanche never disappoints. The food is wonderful and exquisitely presented and the service is incomparable. My favorite restaurant on Longboat Key. Thank you - I will keep coming!
Service not as attentive as we would have expected for fine dining. Water glasses sat empty and we had to ask to have them refilled.
