Great food and service as always. Eerie quiet due to coronavirus fears driven by ridiculous media hype and government response.
The Food and Service were very good. It was somewhat pricey, but worth it.
Food and service were excellent, as usual.
Excellent as always!
Katelynn H. did a wonderful job as our server. She was excellent in describing the various menu items and with all around service in general. Food was outstanding as usual. Best seafood in Sarasota!
Disappointed on our second visit. Had a late lunch on Sunday. Kitchen took a half hour to prepare our food even though the restaurant was empty. One of the Catch of the Day was tasty, but the other was a piece of unappetizing brown flesh from the belly of the fish that should never have left the kitchen. The server comped a dessert, but we still had to pay for the uneaten entree. Will not go back.
Celebrating spring break with daughter and mother
This was a return trip to Duval's. We've been there several times over the last few years. It doesn't disappoint in terms of fresh local catch. I had triple tail for the first time based on our server Alli's recommendation. It was delicious as were the accompanying roasted vegetables. My wife had Scottish salmon and she Wass delighted as well. The helpers wore black gloves when pouring water or delivering bread as an indication of how they are dealing with the coronavirus. By the time left at 7:15 PM, the restaurant was just about full as were the outside tables. We'll be back again for sure.
Since Duvals opened in Sarasota, it is our go-to restaurant
We are a regular.This time not so good. Oyster PoBoy half reg size and soso.
Great inspired cuisine. Small but interesting wine list. Exceptional and friendly service.
This was an amazing evening on the outside tables at Duval’s ! Seafood was excellent and service was great! Highly recommend!
We brought out of town guests for dinner. Chris was attentive and friendly, he didn’t miss a beat! Everyone loved their meals and were very pleased with the entire evening.
Great, fresh seafood. Excellent server who knew the menu and made good suggestions.
Happy hour cocktails were excellent as was the bartender. We were seated for our reservation promptly but not rushed to leave the bar. Service tableside was excellent as well. We all enjoyed the calamari app as well as our entrees, though my Ahi tuna was rare but not warm. We chose Duval's for a thank you dinner to our hosts here in Sarasota. You did not disappoint
It was delicious. 2 had the best grilled swordfish they have ever had. The other 2 had excellent fish
Marvelous seafood combinations of flavor and texture. Very creative dishes.
First class service. Great drinks, Mike is a very good mixologist.
I was t too hungry so I got a salad and an appetizer. A lot of places frown when you give them that order but our server, Lilly was absolutely wonderful! My husband had Mac and cheese ( Lobster) and loved it, and the others loved their meals as well. We will be back!!
From the moment we walked in we were treated extremely polite and professional at the hostess stand. We were seated at a great table. Aly who waited on us did an amazing job and I will always request her section from this point forward. The Black Grouper and Red Snapper dinners were absolutely fantastic and extremely well prepared. Great wine selection also. Overall 5 stars!! Thanks Aly for making sure we had a great dining experience!!
Thank you for the 5 stars and kind words! We are honored to have met and exceeded your expectations and will make sure to pass along the praise to Aly. We can't wait to see you again soon!
Food and service were excellent!
Somewhat disappointing considering the reviews. Food was good, not great. Too many other very good restaurants nearby to settle for OK.
What a great place! This is not a tiki hut fish place but a lovely dining experience. My wife and I started out sharing the Eggplant Rollatini--it's like an eggroll in a rolled thin piece of eggplant. Try it. I had a local Florida fish called Triple Tail and my wife had black snapper. Both were excellent. Our server was very personable and knowledgeable. I'm only sorry I have forgotten her name. Highly recommended!
Loved the food! Creamy Mussels Dijon was the best I’ve had. They accommodate special dietary requests and the value for food received is quite good. Service by Angie was superb!
Great restaurant! One of my favorites
Mussels with light mustard sauce and tasso was excellent. Gazpacho has wonderful tomato taste and just enough spiciness.
Both of our seafood dishes were outstanding! And the service could not have been any better!
Food was very good, as was our server. However, the entire staff seemed somewhat frantic because people were waiting for tables. We had to wait past our reservation time because people were “lingering”. We also saw the hostess asking two or three tables to please leave because they had people waiting for the table. They are booking reservations too close to one another
I would like to personally apologize that we were unable to meet and exceed your expectations on your recent visit. Occasionally, we have guests who dine with us longer than expected, but only a manager will ask a table to relocate in the rare instance it is necessary. I would love to discuss your visit further at your convenience to make sure to coach the right members of my team. Jonathan VanDyke General Manager 941-312-4001
The crab & shrimp cakes were awesome as always. They are the reason I go whenever I'm in town. The clam chowder was also good. Our server Angela L was great.
Always have good food here. Dessert (apple something) that my guests had was way overcooked. Otherwise perfect evening.
We ate outside and they accommodated a party of 8. Very good food and attentive waitress!
Great place for a wonderful meal - family or friends group dining! (Noisy for couples romantic evening out)
Very good experience on a very busy Saturday night. Excellent selection of great seafood. Fairly tight seating. Attentive service. We'll definitely return.
Eggplant appetizer was fantastic, Fish, Rice and vegetables were excellent, bread pudding was a little dry, but key lime crème brulee was very good. The seating outside was difficult with the sun and noise but not terrible. Overall a great dinner experience.
The house salad I ordered for lunch was fresh and crisp. Balsamic rosemary vinaigrette was very flavorful. I ordered crispy calamari as an added protein and it was the perfect lunch entree. Very filling, perfectly fried and obviously not a frozen addition. I like Duvall’s but the noise level for a late Saturday lunch made it hard for my mother to hear me. I wish they could fix that issue.
Duval's was perfect for a Saturday lunch with our visitors. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. It was our first time there and we will certainly return.
The mussels were fantastic, and brought fresh bread to to finish off the sauce, which I quite honestly I would have used a spoon if I had too- wonderful! Then the wedge salad was the perfect transition before the meal with that blue cheese crumble and bacon, just call it billionaire bacon, forget the millionaire types. The sampler with lobster tail, scallops, shrimp and the added the crab shrimp cake was delectable and portion perfect. Service was great- personal and genuine! I’m a local for 10+ years and this was my first time here and will be back very soon... well done Duval’s, well done!
ALI provided excellent service. The grouper was very good but the rice and vegetables were cold. The boulabase was just OK. Not enough broth mainly muscles and calamari. Had high hopes but the food will probably keep us away.
Celebrating a special reunion with family.
We went to Duval's on Thursday before going to Van Wezel. As always we had an amazing experience. I had the Red Snapper with veggies, and it was soooo good. My s/o had the pork chop, and he loved it. We were able to take the shuttle to Van Wezel for the show. Talk about convenience. Thank you.
Friendly staff, good food and reasonable priced. This restaurant always looks clean!
