The service was slow and not very attentive.
We sat next to the kitchen and could smell every piece on schnitzel they cooked. Crazy poor ventilation system.
The food was delicious.
We would try again but sit further from the kitchen.

Went there for the Octoberfest and had a fantastic wiener schnitzel. Love the piano player which makes it a great date place. My wife had the end cut prime rib, very tasty and done right.

We had a great dinner experience. We enjoyed the food. Delicious with generous portions. Wish we could have tried more things. Everything sounded so good. The live piano music was very good. Servers were great. Baked cheesecake was out of this world. A must try!

Chef Rolf’s was absolutely delicious. His gumbo is the best I‘ve ever had. Very friendly atmosphere and a beautiful restaurant. We had crusted salmon and prime ribs that were outstanding. I double highly recommend it and can’t wait to go back.

We enjoyed the early bird specials, with two exceptions. I had the Gazpacho Soup which was very spicy and the early bird chardonnay and Pino Greigo were not to my liking. Overall, very pleased with the early bird special.

The restaurant was short staffed, due to covid I’m sure, so I’ll give them as pass on that, but the food was mediocre. Shrimp appetizer seemed to have freezer burn (certainly was not made from scratch) and the soup came out with the meal. Nothing tasted bad, but nothing was fantastic either. Probably would not try it again.

I presented the coupon for a free appetizer which was a" Bruschetta". Chef said it was an old coupon and wanted to give us calamari. We don't eat calamari. He made the bruschetta 1 piece each. didn't even toast the bread and the oil from the salsa came through and it was soggy and it was awful! Pomegranit martini I ordered was too sweet and I sent it back and the second one came back in a much smaller martini glass but it was better. Chef advertised that on Saturday nite you get $10 off a bottle of wine but again he said that promotion was no longer available although it was on the bottom of our check. food was very good though! our waitress Rali was excellent! I will be dropping Open Table for the above reasons and the Chef has to get his act together.

This was a great place to celebrate our 40th Anniversary! The Savor Sarasota special was a great value and an opportunity to try a few extra items! A main course, appetizer and dessert for $32! White table linens, live piano playing (soft, lovely), friendly staff and delicious meal! We won't wait another 40 years to return!~ We will be back soon!

Enjoyed dinner with friends one who was having a birthday. It was our second visit and certainly will not be our last! Our server, Rali, couldn’t have been nicer or more attentive. Our dinners were all delicious and we each had a special consisting of 3 courses...a good value. The “birthday boy” was celebrated and your chef came by to be sure we enjoyed our meal.

Food has been great both times I’ve been here for lunch. Very good value for the 3 course lunches. The service was not good unfortunately. Our waiter messed up our order so one of our 3 guests got their correct order after the other two had finished entree. My friend asked for a box to go so we could make another appointment on time after lunch. It took 35 minutes to get our “gelato” in styrofoam cups and our check. And the boxed entree had been tossed in the trash, retrieved, after asking about it, and handed to my friend. makes it difficult to go back. Will give it one more try, maybe.

Amazing amazing experience and perfect food. Very attentive server (though, we were one of two tables). Food is not cheap, but very much worth it. Would highly recommend this place and go back every week if I could! Will give free appetizer of the month on request.

Had a delightful dinner on Sunday night. House salad contained a great mix, prime rib cooked to perfection, we both ordered medium rare. The grand finale was our desert of fried apples with ice cream.

Our hostess went above and beyond to help us celebrate 2 birthdays and a newly commissioned Lt. graduating from a ROTC program. A beautiful floral arrangement awaited us at the Table of 7 when we arrived. The talented pianist was wonderful providing live music in the background. The best dinner after coming out of the pandemic quarantined period. Thanks to Chef Rolf and staff!!

It was our first time there, our friends has been there before. We had a wonderful experience. The food was really good, waiter was so friendly and helpful. Great personality, and checked on us many times. The Beautiful White Piano was not only stunning, the music was a beautiful touch. The noise level was good and not noisy, we were next to piano and the noise level was not a problem. Location is perfect and parking was good. The Chef was amazing, and has a great reputation. We will definitely be going back!

Restaurant seemed short of help and caused us to wait often for service. Also the quality of the meat was not up to our expectations, however, the sides and salad were tasty.
