Waiter had no personality . Hostess sat us against wall and I asked to be seated at empty tables in middle of room. She said it was reserved but when we left still empty

This was our first visit. The ambiance is wonderful. Casual American bistro with a nice selection of small bites and full dinners. We started with the tuna tartare and enjoyed a skirt steak entree as well as an Asian-inspired tiger shrimp and noodles. The wine list is very fairly priced and offers some good choices. We will be back!

Produce was sub-standard. I ordered the cauliflower panzanella and the entire dish felt as if assembled from items purchased from a supermarket. The short rib tagliatelle was also bland, and the peas were not fresh. This restaurant used to be excellent after having patronised it for many years and we were extremely disappointed on this occasion.

I grew up in Sarasota, but now live in Atlanta. I didn't know Sarasota had a restaurant that could rival Atlanta's top restaurants until I ate at Baker & Wife a few years ago. Now whenever I'm in town visiting family for the holidays I make sure to have at least one dinner here. During my most recent visit we had an appetizer of the brussels sprouts and sausage, which was very good. I had the lamb shank special, and it was one of the best meals I've had this year. My wife had the short rib pasta, which she very much enjoyed. My family member had the pork tenderloin, and he said it was great. The service was top notch, and the cocktails were enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Baker & Wife for anyone who wants a great meal in a relaxing dining room.

Always enjoy Baker & Wife. Food is terrific, our server Michael was great and the vibe is very comfortable. The pumpkin salad is outstanding, skirt steak cooked perfectly and delicious, calamari were tender and lightly sauced, which was also great. The brussels with sausage were a little too salty but that could just be me. Look forward to returning again and again.

Two differentiating factors you can count on:
1. Something new and delicious on the menu.
2. Old favorites you look forward to (such as the beet/goat cheese appetizer).

Bankers and Wife is one of the best, most consistent, and enjoyable restaurant experiences in Sarasota.

They are located far off the tourist path offering free, plentiful parking.

Without a doubt, the best professional bartender in Sarasota, with every drink crafted to perfection. Who else has berries in their tap water?

The food is excellent, with a wide range of possibilities to suit any pallet—great fire-baked pizza to the catch of the day fish. Our table had both.

We went on a weds night, and it was crowded but not annoying so. Noise level is moderate to high depending on seating.

Get reservations on the weekend, even at the bar.

They were out of one of the specials, I hear for great reasons. I got the Gnocchi with pancetta and peas in a garlic cream sauce and it was wonderful! We shared desserts, loving both the chocolate square and the Creme Brulee.

I brought my mom for her 80th birthday and we were greeted with a wonderful welcome. All of the staff is incredibly accommodating and positive and very knowledgeable about the menu. I guess I was a little bit disappointed that they didn’t bring my mom a little birthday treat. That aside I’ve there several times I’ll return happily!
