The best meal I have had in a while. The mushroom risotto and the rib eye were a phenomenonal pair, then top with Bernaise sauce was to die for!
WE EUROPEAN ARE A LITTLE SPOILED ON THE FRONT OF GREAT FOOD...SO WE FOUND IT TOO EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT IT IS...ALSO THE SPECIAL MENU ( $65 WITHOUT ANY SUPPLEMENT OR WINE !!! ) AND A LA CARTE ARE TOO COMPLICATED TO UNDERSTAND : YOU CANNOT CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER SELECTION AND ON TOP OF IT, THERE ARE HIGH SUPPLEMENTS EVEN ON THE MENU...
THE FOOD IS GOOD BUT NOT ANY MORE THAN AT ANY OTHER GOOD AMERICAN RESTAURANT ( WHICH ARE USUALLY LESS PRICEY...)
ALSO THE SETTINGS IS OLD STYLE, CERTAINLY NOT ROMANTIC, I WOULD EVEN SAY NOSTALGIC !!!
BUT ALL TOGETHER FOR AMERICAN PEOPLE, IT IS A GOOD SENSE OF FRENCH "GRANDE CUISINE " AND IS WORTH A VISIT.
Very nice place with excellent food and service. Hidden spot in Longboat for a great meal. Highly recommend.
Interesting menu, great steak choices and classic French choices
Fit for foodies!
Excellent all round and our server/waiter Michel made our night special with his all round attention, professionalism and sense of humour,we’ll be back 🙏🏻
Highly recommed this special restaurant! World class French cuisine - a hidden gem.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Maison Blanche. Our food was delicious, well presented and the proportions were ideal.
My husband and I have been noticing how consistently Maison Blanche receives excellent reviews over several years. I’m not sure why we waited so long to go. It was a true French experience from the delicious food, beautiful presentation, fantastic wine list to the perfect service we received. The evening was amazing. It was the best meal we have had in the Sarasota area in three years. It is priced comparably with other area high end restaurants and we walked away feeling we absolutely got what we paid for.
Maison Blanche is the best fine dining restaurant in Sarasota. If you want authentic French food, this is the place. The food is superb with varied starters and entrees. The wine list is excellent with reasonably priced with domestic and foreign wines, especially French wines.
The desserts are super and I would recommend the chocolate soufflé.
The dining room is white, elegantly simple, except the central spray of sumptuous flowers which change periodically.
This is certainly the best restaurant we have been to in the Sarasota area. It equals many fine restaurants in Europe.
The Colorado lamb and bread puddind were wonderful! The service was suitably attentive and it has an excellent wine list. I thoroughly recommend it.
Best restaurant in Florida!
A gem of culinary excellence on Long Boat Key! Fresh, French and Fantastic.
A wonderful dining experience from start to finish. Welcoming hosts, varied and large wine list, a menu that will please all, what more could one ask for. Oh yes, professional service.
All delivered for your enjoyment.
Maison Blanche is a special place. We go once a year each season to remind ourselves of just how good the food is. It is a top notch French restaurant. Food was again amazing and service was great.
Love this restaurant, best on Longboat Key! Had the Colorado Lamb this evening. What a treat! Thank you for the wonderful food, great atmosphere and fabulous service!
Top of the line. Food excellent, service refined but not snooty, nice white-curtained room. Poultry pie (duck and chicken) excellent, snapper in buttery sauce very tasty. Asparagus soup just ok and music a bit too loud, but on the whole as good a dining experoence as any in Sarasota. Expensive, but not unreasonable for what you get
This is the second time I have dined at Maison Blanche. Each experience was wonderful. The presentation is magnificent and the waiters are very attentive. I look forward to coming back again. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the Sarasota area.
Elegant setting with delicious food and excellent service.
As usual, the best food in Southwest Florida and beyond.
Service was impeccable! Food was outstanding. I recommend the mushroom risotto. I felt underdressed for dinner due to most of the men were wearing sport coats, so dress up.
Best classic French restaurant in Sarasota. Original flavours and outstsnding presentation.
Best modern French cooking in the area. Ambience is casual but beautiful with flowers and clever table centerpieces. The chef has a mssterful way with fish and seafood. Octopus appetizer was tender and very tasty. My wife’s crab roll appetizer was also a delight. Her sea bass entry with beautifully crisped skin was to die for. My salmon was done perfectly and served on a bed of spinach purée that enhanced the flavors of the salmon. Desserts are decadent: apple tart is light but skillfully caramel iced, the strawberry vacherin rich with ripe strawberry flavors. Service is friendly, responsive and knowledgable. I am sure that you will not find some of the older vintages of burgundies, bordeaux’s and Loire valley wines anywhere else in Florida, especially with such value driven pricing. Well worth the trip to Longboat Key.
We love the quality of the restaurant
We had a fabulous experience. Would definitely go back!
Best classical French food around! Impeccable service and friendly vibe - every time we visit!
This restaurant never disappoints. Every element of one’s dining experience is first rate.
The food was good but not good enough to warrant the price.
Inventive menu. Delicious food. Wonderful service. Nice background music. We especially enjoyed hearing Madeline Peyroux. We woke up the following morning remembering fondly our dinner at Maison Blanche. Would love to dine here again on our next visit to the area.
The various courses were well prepared and presented. The wait staff were very pleasant and very knowledgeable about the menu offerings.
Consistently excellent! What more can be said!
Repeat customers for a reason!!
Consistently good. Order Soufflés for dessert in advance. Menu is limited but choices are all wonderful! We always go twice in a week because it is that good!
We always enjoy dining at Maison Blanche.The food and service are excellent.We have never been disappointed.
Great meal and great service. Menu features many classic French dishes all served by a wait staff that is both attentive and unobtrusive. Maison Blanche is fine dining at its best.
Refined French in minimalist modern setting. We prefer more bistro cooking with varying textures and a warmer atmosphere. The vacherin was beautiful with luscious meringue. Suckling pig did not have crispy skin though extremely tender meat. Lamb chop with no bone. Very good mushroom risotto
The birthday dinner for my wife with our friends was flawless. The food was exquisite, the service from Victoria was an exceptional special touch, and the room was elegant and vibrant. Our friends from Manhattan could not stop extolling the experience. This is easily our favorite restaurant in the Sarasota area. We look forward to many visits.
Simply superb! Thank you!
From the moment we entered the restaurant, we knew this would be a special dining experience and it most definitely was! This is a restaurant that deserves at least a Michelin Star! What an incredible night of dining! Hats off to the Chef and his staff! If you find yourself on Longboat Key, do not miss dining here!
Great restaurant and dining experience...would highly recommend.
