Our first visit for 18 months. Menu more familiar, found several things to like. The swordfish special was delicious. My wife like the sliders--blue cheese and steak gets her every time.
Very good and service was good as well.
Rosearello, Thank you for the great review look forward to serving you again soon. Libbys
It's a fun place, friendly service, but VERY NOISEY. For older people,
it is especially difficult to carry on a conversation. Perhaps some
mufflers installed in the ceiling would help.
SusieQ, Thank you for the feedback on your visit we are looking into something to control the noise level in the restaurant.
Libby’s nails the steak frite perfectly - every time. The mussels are delicious but I wish they could back off the salt a little in the awesome creamy broth in the bowl. We are grateful for our neighborhood bistro!
Lovegoodfood Thank you for the great review! We are pleased you enjoyed your visit with us. We are glad to be your neighborhood bistro!!! Libby's
Please confirm that I have received the 100 points for my visit.
Excellent restaurant! Very friendly staff. I highly recommend it.
Luana, Thank you for the 5 star review and the kind feedback! Libbys
Food and service was excellent. Great choices for brunch!
First time here . Needed something close to downtown SRQ, Florida Studio Theater ( 8 mins)The ambience of this restaurant is absolutely beautiful and inviting. Very classy.
The drinks were good. Missed happy hour by a few minutes to at least one cheap drink and small bites.
Got the black n blue sliders, truffle fries and orange chicken with jasmine rice and a side order of parmesan fries.( i have to say the parmesan and seasoning was not coated on fries, all on the bottom of container ) that waa a bit disappointing.
Our server was really not around much except to clear our plates. Didnt ask how our meal was or if we wanted more drinks , but I guess its better than someone every 5 minutes interrupting our conversation. He was very polite though.
Definitely would go back here. Food was really good. Probably sit outside next time , the noise by the kitchen and door was a bit much where we were seated.
The bathroom was not very clean, would be my only real conplaint
Decent lunch and good ambiance, but a little disappointing. Entree salads were fresh and nicely presented, but mostly greens. Had to pick around to find the supposedly featured ingredients. Sidewalk chairs are too low for the table heights, so not very comfortable. Also, big kudos for offering a vegan burger option, but why only as a giant double cheeseburger? I'd have ordered it as a single, but our server (who was nice and did a good job), said it's only available as a double burger. Weird.
Our server was terrific, the menu servings perfect and great service
Thank you so much Kate, exactly what we strive for - can't wait to see you again. Libby's
Great friendly service. Early dining (5.15pm) was a good move. By 7pm many groups arrived, was impressed with how the wait staff kept up the great service. When seated the patrons were well spaced both inside and outside.
The food was terrific. Special Soup to start was Real French Onion (excellent). Had a Salmon and Shrimp combination as the main dish with Excellent sauces. Wide menu choices from sandwiches to full course meals.
Had not been to Libby’s for a while and was impressed with the modern clean well decorated restaurant. Free parking across the street in Morton’s parking lot.
It will become high on our Open Table list!
Courtney Courtney server was fabulous. And even the managers stepped in to make sure all our needs were attended too. Promptly. Great.
Vinnie Just wanted to say thank you for the great review and kind words about Courtney! We look forward to serving you again soon. Libby's
First time to Libbys. Was much better than expected and far exceeded our expectaions. Diverse menu and selections for all. Server was great. Parking at site is not conducive to the restaurant size. Minimal on street parking, and lot in rear is sparse but supports employee parking also. Locals probably know better parking areas close by, but out of town visitors may have a parking issue.
Thank you for the review. Parking is an opportunity here with the shopping area. There is a big parking lot behind our building that can be used by all but you are right the out of town guests would not know this parking lot. Thank you again for the review and glad the service and food exceeded your expectations. Libby's
Excellent service, food and ambiance !
Thank you for the great review
Wonderful service and food!
Sara, Thank you for the great 5 star review we are so glad you enjoyed your visit with us. Libby's Crew
Anonymous, We are pleased your visit with us was a 5 star visit! Libby's
Great local find! We love their Happy Hours and Brunches.
Nice place for lunch, dinner or happy hour
I've been to Libby's before and we decided to go there on a Saturday night. It is a good value for the quality of food and service provided. The main courses are presently with care and the quality of the ingredients is first rate. My only complaint is that there are no booths, tables set against a wall does not necessarily provide much privacy, although they do have a room for parties, it is separated from the main dining room by glass.
Rob, Thank you for the 5 star review we are glad you enjoyed your visit with us. We are at a disability with the private seating but would be more then happy to move your party to anywhere we have available to accommodate your dining experience. thank you again for the 5 star review! Libby's
Food was outstanding! We ordered the crab cake as an appetizer and I had the dynamite shrimp plus jalapeño Mac and cheese as an entree. SO good! We will definitely be back.
Rebecca K. Thank you so glad you enjoyed your visit with us and looking forward to seeing you again.
Whenever I visit my mom in Sarasota, she wants to go to Libby’s. Why not? The food and service are consistently excellent.
Thank you for bringing you mom to enjoy her time with you and Libby's. We love connections like this at Libby's
As always, our experience was exceptional. Always going beyond to accommodate. Luis, our server, was incredibly attentive and when there was a small hiccup with an item at our table, he handled it quickly and politely.
The bone-in bourbon pork chop was amazing
Thank you so glad your visit was 5 star rated!! Come visit again soon Libby's
So, so good. We were in for vacation and I see why it was rated so highly. Great service-and incredible brunch items….recommend the bananas Foster French toast and the brunch burger.
Thank you for visiting us and so glad you enjoyed your foster french toast and Brunch Burger!! Libbys
Secon time their. Ordered ribs delicious and ordered chicken Malanase. Very good
Wanda, thank you for the great review we are pleased you enjoyed you meals with us! Libby's
We went to Libbys last night and sat outside. I asked for a different table (didn't want to sit too close to anyone else during Covid, and they were happy to accomodate us. Our waitress couldn't have been more helpful and was on top of refilling drinks, bringing food and clearing our table. The food was really good. I had the chicken milanese and my husband hot the cajun pasta. The coffee was the only disappointment. It wasn't very hot and was bitter.
Nancy, thank you for taking the time out and giving us a 5 star rating!! If the coffee or anything is not to your liking please let us know we will make a fresh pot for you!! thank you again for the review! Libby's
Amazing service, high quality cocktails and menu choices. Food was tasty and perfectly executed.
Melissa, We are pleased you enjoyed your visit with us and the 5 star review. We strive for 5's!
Always dependable for a good meal. This was our third visit to Libby's since moving to Sarasota a month ago. Wife believes it will be one of her regular 'go to' places. Me, not as much as I prefer places that provide a bit more of an 'experience' when dining. If you are familiar with the Great American Restaurant regional chain in the mid-Atlantic, you will probably be comfortable with Libby's although the concepts are different.
Great outside venue with good food and good service.
Cathy, Thank you for the great venue review we look forward to your next visit!! Libby's
Honestly, I really do love Libbys. However we went for Sunday brunch and we were on the early side so it wasn’t too crowded. We asked to be placed at a certain table and the staff move the table and chairs to another place-sat us down at another location other than what we had asked for then they moved us to another table then they moved the original table back THEN they switched the tables around AGAIN. The Mimosas were mainly orange juice. Barely a sparkle at all. Our food was not hot when it was delivered to us and I desperately needed some additional bananas Foster French toast sauce. I was literally eating plain French toast with about four sliced bananas thrown on top of it. So, all in all not a great experience. Usually we have a better one I must say. Disappointed in our “brunch” at every level.
Our daughter and friends had dinner for her 15th birthday and everyone was great!
Thank you for sharing your daughters birthday with us. We look forward to more celebrations with your family.
Our server, Mia, was wonderful. She was very attentive and friendly. We had a very good meal. We love Libby’s.
thank you very much for the great review!! Mia does a great job for us and glad she made your dining experience great. Libby's loves you too!
good but a little disappointed from the last time I was there. Very little coleslaw on my crab cake sandwich. But it was very filling and tasty. Our friends did not get their dinner for a long time after we got ours. I guess it’s COVID times
Everything was great. If there was anything I could change was the noise level. The restaurants could use some sound attenuation..
Thank you for the review we are workin on the noise level with some soon to come noise reducing filters. Look forward to seeing you again soon Holly. Libby's
Look at my other restaurant reviews, as they are always awesome! This bad review is due to restaurant was dirty, hostess sat us in direct sun, even though there were tables in shade, flies were horrendous, food was average and they double charged my credit card. After leaving numerous messages and an email, it still isn’t corrected. This one is never go to again! Management is the worse and you can’t blame lack of staff on the double charge on my credit card.
Mediterranean Chicken and try
Furled fries are worth the calories.
Thank you so much for your review, we look forward to seeing you again!
We loved the ribs! Nat is an excellent waiter. The drinks are nice too.
Great place for weekend lunch and brunch. Dinner is wonderful, too. Lovely food, great service and friendly atmosphere. One of my favorite restaurants!
Love dinning here but matter what the day or occasion.
