The best restaurant in the Sarasota area. Food and service is superb. Restaurant is beautiful and the owner is on the floor. We went here when they opened 16 years ago and it is still the top spot in Florida

Always lovely, they make you feel welcome regardless of how long it has been between visits. As only seasonal residents, we visit perhaps only once a year. Food is delicious. The risotto with French black truffle was an extreme indulgence but no better place to have it expertly prepared than Maison Blanche. Timing was wonderful, service was wonderful, but the food was definitely on the rich side.

Maison Blanche is our favorite restaurant in Sarasota. It is a hidden gem on Longboat Key, tucked away in the Four Winds Beach Resort. The space is simple, yet elegant. The food is superb, the best French food in Sarasota and possibly in Florida. Service is impeccable.
The wine list has something for all tastes and all price points. When we dine here, it is like a trip to Paris. This is one of the best restaurants in Florida.

Our favorite Sarasota restaurant. Consistently delivers great food with superior service. Sarasota has plenty of “ok” restaurants but less than a handful of restaurants that can regularly impress with food preparation, creativity, quality and service.

Maison Blanche delivers it all at a fair and reasonable price.

Superb winter dishes. Steak, snapper, braised vegetables. The atmosphere is also pleasantly removed from the surrounding by the minimal decor and drapes that surround the restaurant. Great value too, and wine list

Maison Blanche has been our favorite restaurant for almost 18 years. Exquisite tastes for even a seasoned palate- Jose has demonstrated consistency and artistry to every plate. This elegant venue has captured our hearts for every special occasion and remains our go-to for a predictable treat, classic ambience and welcoming patronage by Victoria and gratitude seen in Jose’s smile.
