The food and atmosphere were very underwhelming. At least three couples were seated and within a few minutes got up and left the restaurant, not due to anything the staff did or did not do, but likely the limited menu and number of options outside of the hotel.
The bar staff and waitstaff however were exceptional even though they were very busy (the bar was slammed when the rain started and the rooftop bar closed and our poor waiter was sweating from running around)the entire time we dined.
Too many people were dining without an adequate amount of servers. My food, an impossible burger, was inedible and burnt. The server was so slammed with other tables that he never came to check on us after food was delivered. Therefore, I never had a chance to get another dish and had no dinner.
My dinner companions thought the food was mediocre at best.
The food & drinks were simply amazing
Outstanding service and accommodation. It made my daughters first 4th of July in Sarasota memorable.
Thanks Westin - EvoQ
Visit rooftop bar at Westin for great views, but skip Evoq. Much butter food elsewhere.
Father’s Day and my wife and I need a place to eat,, it’s a Westin hotel restaurant and we are vegetarian ,, tuff call here but waiter was great no crowds and the crisp Mediterranean flat bread and Asian noodle dish were perfect great presentation ,, just a perfect setting and then drinks on the roof deck that’s a wrap
We had a few meals at Evoq and it was so good, we had the same dinner again! Chef chef combinations of excellent fish preparation and the sauces were the draw. While here a week at the Westin, we tried fish at several known restaurants and Evoq won, hands down! An additional plus was the expert bartender who made a top notch Vesper for my husband!
Very overpriced hotel breakfast. Not many options outside your typical toast and eggs.
Very limited menu and very limited wine list full of production wines. I try to avoid booking restaurants in hotels but missed that this one was in the Westin.
Food came out warm, not hot. Service was not good, my husband got a glass of wine and it was served in a high ball glass. Very expensive, windy and noisy as we sat outside and the seating is right above street not on top floor like we thought.
We had a great night thanks Evoq.
Beautiful ambiance on patio. It over looks a busy intersection, but the view is still nice. Have some vegetarian options that are okay. Great cocktails.
One of the least memorable Mother’s Day dinners in memory. Although the food was adequate it was overpriced and very forgettable.
The only memory was leaving the restaurant and going to the roof deck to watch the sunset.
EVOQ won’t have a return visit from us.
Great food. Amazing service and gorgeous ambulance!
Made a reservation for an outdoor table to watch the sunset while eating, but was seated inside which is not worth the experience.
Food and service was amazing. Would most definitely go back.
I was very surprised by the fact that the only parking available was valet. It was not easy to find the place either and a hard place to navigate. I thought we would have a nice view sitting outside but it was in a very high traffic area/intersection so it was also loud. The water was kind of visible but not easily. The food was very mixed. My bison flatbread was very underwhelming. The waiter said whatever I wanted to hear, which was incredibly unhelpful! When I was thinking about getting the flatbread it was good, when I didn't like it he didn't care for it either! My friend's curry noodles were excellent! The actual service was pretty mediocre. I would go back and sit inside for the noodles but that's about it.
Great service besides the fact that they billed us for something they brought out on accident.
The fish tacos are very good. I just felt that they could have a more extensive menu. Choices were very limited. However since I am sulfide intolerant I appreciated them having a organic Prosecco. It was delicious.
Great food and service! Our server was attentive and the Chef prepares amazing food!
Easter , Family get together absolutely beautiful could not have been better
Our server was incredibly kind and helpful!
Food was OK to good and served barely warm. We had the grouper sandwiches which I bet would be really good if served promptly. Overall our major complaint was it took 45 min to get our food. Couldn’t figure out if the kitchen was just backed up with room service or if our server was too overwhelmed. We expected better from a Westin:
My boyfriend (who is a chef) and I came here for dinner. Wayyyy overpriced for the quality of food - because it’s at the Westin I guess. Nice view if you sit outside. While we were eating, the table behind us got up to leave and the lady came up to me and grabbed me and started saying awful things about my boyfriend. Ruined our entire night which I understand isn’t the restaurant’s fault but says plenty about their entitled patrons.
Our waitress was very nice and loved the noodle dish. Great view and felt safe at the facility. Quality of food was great.
Great food and great service.
Good for when you’re staying at the Westin and don’t feel like leaving hotel for dinner. Not a huge selection of entrees but skirt steak sandwich was good. Our server was really nice/pleasant.
Our dinner was amazing! I had the skirt steak and my husband had the grouper sandwich. Our appetizer was the Mahi Mahi tacos which were amazing! Atmosphere was good and server was great!
Slow, cold food, too expensive
No hostess, so we didn’t even sit for our reservation. Other diners at the bar said the waiters were rude. The atmosphere was not welcoming at all so we left after waiting for over 5 mins at the hostess desk. We won’t be returning.
Food was excellent, caramelized soup very good, the short rib was amazing, service was very friendly, one of our go to places.
We had reservations and were staying at the hotel. After having a fantastic breakfast, we decided to book dinner. It took almost 10 minutes for someone to greet us and we ended up having to flag down a server. Once we got to our table it took what seemed like forever to get menus, drinks, dinner ordered, etc. As a result, we didn’t go back for the rest of the trip.
The experience was incredible. We have a baby and are cautious with Covid-19 so they sat us safely away from everyone and we’re extremely polite and understanding. The food was one of the best in town. Will return !
My whole experience was fantastic. I would definitely return.
Valentine’s day dinner with very poor service. We were clearly in between two server’s areas which resulted in both of them ignoring us for most of the night - barely got anything ordered and everything took for ever to get to the table. No apologies. Not the customer’s fault if the system doesn’t work.
Food was mediocre at best. Not the valentine's day dinner we were hoping for.
Extremely disappointing! Possibly the worst dinner experience I ever had - service was terrible and food was barely edible.
Evoq is lovely. The food was very good and the ambiance perfect. The service was good but a bit slow to get started.
