Ophelia's on the Bay
We were 6 for brunch and everything was great. The lobster bisque was wonderful and the Parisian Benedict was perfect. All of this at a great location right on the water. Beautiful view. We will definitely be back!
What a unique dining experience. Fantastic food paired with outdoor seating with views of a tranquil bay with manatee and other species entertaining you with their presence.
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at your restaurant, and had a very enjoyable and romantic evening! The food and service were outstanding. You made our special day so memorable!
Service was great and so was the food! Will definitely return!
The food was very good. We went for a Sunday brunch. The inside table had a great view of the water. BUT the restaurant was very HOT. And it had been open for 2 hrs before we arrived. Sweat poured down all over my body so it was hard to enjoy a great meal
The meal we have had in a very long time. Superb and view spectacular. Thank you Ophelia for a memorable birthday dinner celebration!!
Food was delicious as usual and service very attentive. Took advantage of the Savor Sarasota menu which turned out to be a great value. We will be back!
Our server Cassie, made our time at Ophelia’s on the Bay amazing! We loved the food, the service, the scenery, etc. Everyone was very nice and my girlfriend loved how special she felt during her birthday dinner. They had a great selections of wines to choose from. We were also impressed with how they change their menu daily and make everything fresh.
Excellent menu with friendly and attentive serving staff. The location is great - but the interior could do with an upgrade to improve the ambience.
Excellent service and food. Perfect for a delightful meal!
Great restaurant great food
Amazing food! Beautiful view the staff was extremely nice! Best restaurant I've ate at, just a phenomenal filet there.
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. When we were taken to our table, the flowers that I had ordered were there and we were even given some champaign. The waitress was very pleasant without being overbearing. Sorry that I don't recall her name. When we left she even carried flowers to the car. We'll be back. Thanks you for making our anniversary so special.
My Birthday and they gave no greetings or recognition
Ophelia's used to be my favorite restaurant in the Sarasota area. We always went for all special (and not so special) occasions. When we went on Tuesday evening, it was not a special occasion, and I am glad about that.
The food was mediocre at best. My husband's steak was extremely tough and difficult to cut. My duck breast was just okay, saved by the blueberry sauce.
We expect Ophelia's to be expensive, but there used to be value. This time it was just over-priced.
I wish they would of had a sign outside that said AIR IS NOT WORKING. We were so excited to be there and once I walked in, the heat hit my face with a vengeance. I had to pick up many hair, my face had two cherry red tomatoes on the cheeks, my back was dripping sweat. We rushed to eat and ask the waiter for our bill. My husband mentioned to the girl in the entrance.....”it’s pretty hot”.... and she looked at him like.....”yeah..... all the time....” not happy with my experience at all
My wife and I come to Siesta Key every summer. We celebrate our wedding anniversary at Ophelia’s every year. It’s always a treat!
Fantastic food, service and view as always, alas a table with noisy teenagers and uninterested adults nearby - not the restaurant's fault!!
Rainbow enhanced ambiance from the covered porch made for a delightful August dining experience.
I enjoyed the such and Oyster's Rockefeller enter'.
This was our first visit. We shall return. Very enjoyable evening.
Even though the area where we ate was a bit on the warm side for a brunch, it still did not detract from the exceptional quality of the food and our waiter’s professionalism and personality. The view was worth it for a lazy, hazy, relaxing respite allowing us to totally enjoy a few getaway hours. We will return...
This was hands down the best service I have ever had! The server overheard us talking about the mosquitos and brought us bug spray. The food was amazing. The service was amazing and the view was ever better!
Outstanding service, food and ambiance. We thoroughly enjoyed our Birthday dinner and will most certainly return : )
We received a gift card for Christmas. We requested outside. We sat by the water however there wasn’t any shade so we requested to be moved to under the porch roof. Still had a great view of water and fountain.
We both ordered from prix fix menu for $32 for 3 courses. I had duck and husband had Mahi Mahi. Both were very good. Drinks were also good. Pear martini and Long Island tea.
They only have valet parking because it’s a small lot.
We recommend Ophelia’s especially for a special occasion.
Very pleasant fine dining experience. We ordered from the Savor Sarasota summer special menu, a $32 special which included appetizer, entree and dessert. Food, service and ambiance were all outstanding. Highly recommend.
You know those once-in-a-lifetime meals that you'll never forget?!? Well, that was my experience at Ophelia's On The Bay. I have travelled throughout the world and eaten in some of the most distinguished restaurants in foreign locales, but Ophelia's has unseated my #1 most memorable meal. The food was unparalleled, the craft cocktails were as beautiful as they were delicious, the ambience and waterfront view perfectly lovely, and the service truly outstanding. This restaurant should definitely be on your bucket list!!!
Great food and service. Disappointed we couldn’t sit by a window or outside but will be back when we visit Florida.
Great Food, Great Location all be it lighting was a bit subdued and so hard to see food as we were outside by the water.
Menu, food, and service were very good. The ambience was serene and a great place for an intimate dinner. I had expected a better view inclusive of the ocean and sunset vs the inland waters and mangroves. All in all, a nice experience.
We enjoyed Ophelia’s for a special occasion. Beautiful setting. Wonderful food!
Loved it all. Been at Ophelia’s many times....always a great experience.
What an amazing place. We went for Sunday brunch and it was perfect. The food was delicious, service excellent and the location beautiful. Great value for money, not the cheapest but it felt like a really special experience. Highly recommend for a special occasion.
Great as always!
The food was spectacular and with the Savour Sarasota menu price, a real steal. Our first table, down by the water's edge, was in direct sun, so we asked to be moved. We were. The only negative was the pesky flies who appeared with our entrees. When our plates were removed, they left. No problems during the desert service.
We had a great dinner and the service was awesome
We enjoyed our entire dining experience, from drinks and appetizers to our entrees (we each chose different ones) to dessert and coffee. The service was excellent. We’ll go back the next time we’re In the area.
Beautifull, delicious and great service!
Service and food were excellent. Our server Mike was a pleasure to speak with and the view was beautiful!
Absolutely wonderful! My husband and I went for our honeymoon and loved everything about this place. Amazing food!
We wanted a table outside but were talked out of it by the staff. The table we got was in the back next to the bar and two large parties. It was very noisy and not a great view of the water. As it turned out the evening was beautiful. Next time I will take the outside table! The food was excellent and so was the waiter.
