    We really enjoyed our first trip to Baker & Wife... it was a very pleasant surprise! The facility, the service & the food were excellent and a great value. I was a little disappointed at the wine selection (by the glass) and the seats (at the bar & at the table) were a little "hard" for someone with a bad back... like me. All in all, it was a great experience and we'll be back!

    We haven’t been to Baker & Wife since before the pandemic. It was good, but not as outstanding as I remember. We will go back, but it is not at the top of our list. Cocktails and food were very good, but our server, Kanon, was unenthusiastic and uninterested. He was definitely a negative. The noise level was higher than I would like. By the way, I ordered a cucumber martini, a grouper special and flourless chocolate cake.

    Our favorite restaurant in Sarasota ! We are very peaky (We are French ahah !!), going to the restaurant twice a week, from Paris, to Montréal, Geneva, Seattle … Baker & Wife is perfect, from the cocktails, to the deserts. And the Service is great too.

    B&W is quickly becoming our favorite restaurant in Sarasota! The menu evolutions are always a surprise, and then a delight upon ordering the new goodies. Last night, the pork dumplings and burrata salad were both perfect! And, how is it that other restaurants can't manage to come close to this Caesar Salad? Congrats and keep it up!

    All the servers who came to our table (3) were professional, personable and efficient. The menu was outstanding giving us great choices. The quality of our meals were above average and well worth the cost, which by the way wasnt bad either. Will for sure be back !

    A local favorite, Baker and Wife has become our go to for special occasions. We like the casual atmosphere and consistently delicious food and interesting cocktails. Fresh catch is always wonderful, while hubby sticks to the short ribs. Plates served piping hot which we think is a must. This time we ordered dessert, a flaky pastry filled with cream and covered in a raspberry sauce. Delicious! We don’t like the seating along the benches on the east wall. Tables are too close together. We had requested window seating, which they did not honor, but not a big deal. Limited bar seating. Wait staff is always friendly, efficient, accommodating. Menu of entrées is somewhat limited but feel there is something for everybody. Quality is outstanding.

    Had dinner Friday eve with wife and son…..everything was stellar from start to finish. Very impressed with the service (Perla was our server). Most importantly……the food was excellent! Everything we ordered from apps to mains and drinks was superb. Cant wait to get back…as it will now be a “regular spot” for me.

    Arrived at 6:15pm and our window table was available as promised. Our server, remember his name, was terrific. It was pretty busy for a Wed night but our service did not suffer. he checked on us periodically but not obtrusive. The food, as always was perfect and our courses were timed perfectly.

    Diversity of the menu was great but the food was just average. the noise level made conversations difficult at times. our server was inattentive which left us waiting to get drinks and dirty plates on the table. if the service and food quality matched the menu it would be much better

    Been meaning to try this restaurant since we moved to Sarasota. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that we didn't try them sooner. Everything about restaurant is great! All members of their staff are very nice. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The cocktails were fun and tasty too. Can't wait to go back soon!

    Excellent all around. We were a party of 5. As first timers, we didn't know about the great table in the back. We were delighted that they moved us their. It was nice and quiet for us. Otherwise the main dining are would be rather loud. Food was outstanding, cocktails were hand crafted and as good as they looked. We will definitely go again.
