Terrific food, varied choices with summer specials. Unique cocktails. Diego was our server, he was courteous, attentive and made our dinner a pleasure. Great experience, will def return!
We live in the neighborhood and always bring friends here when the are visiting. Great vibe. Active with people but not loud head banging music. Very nice casual and comfortable- like being entertained at a friends home that has a fabulous chef and friendly and professional wait staff!
Excellent food and service. Brought water bowl for the puppies without asking. One if the best Manhattans I've had that I didn't fix myself.
Thank you so much CigarMan for taking the time to give us a review! We look forward to serving you again soon!
I have dined at Libby’s several times. They are predictably excellent. I will always return. This is a hidden gem!
My husband and I had dinner on the patio yesterday evening. Our waiter was very kind and personable and did an excellent job. I believe his name was Nat, but I'm not certain. Food and drinks arrived quickly. My husband rated his hamburger as excellent. I had the vegan cauliflower. The cauliflower too much oil on it. The accompanying brussel sprouts were burnt.
A must try when visiting Sarasota!!! Everythung about Libby's was on point!!
We can always rely on Libby’s for a delicious meal and fine service!
The food was very good. Our waiter was excellent. However, we waited at least 20 minutes after we were seated before a waiter appeared and that was only after we flagged down a manager. Apparently there was a miscommunication between the hostess and the waiter. We did appreciate the free appetizer that was offered. It seems to be understaffed for waiters.
Libby’s was such an exceptional experience! The Asian inspired wings + macadamia chicken are must haves! The service + ambiance made it feel upscale without the stuffy environment. Definitely looking forward to a future visit!
We got together for our family dinner. Service and food was outstanding as always. Our server and the manager Brian made sure to made us feel like home and we’re very welcoming. 1000% recommended
Thank you so much Andrea for taking the time to give us a review! We look forward to serving you and your family again soon!
We ate outside for lunch and had the ability to hold a meeting lunch with little to no trouble. It was loud a few times, but you can’t control the trucks that pass. The food was excellent, and the neighborhood was so cute. Our waitress was on it and always wanted to know if we needed anything else. I will be back for sure.
I like the new rewards program. Server was great along with the food and presentation.
Amazing experience! Yummy food and quiet environment
The middle of the pretzel bites were cold though the dip was excellent. The eggs on the crabmeat Benedict were well done and the benedict was lukewarm. For $4 extra, 2 strips of very thin bacon. I thought it was one bacon broken into 2. Service is very slow due to lack of staff I guess. There were 2 guys dressed in dresses who walked around the restaurant stopping by tables and making loud noises - one went up to a guy and grabbed his neck and yelled out “daddy”. Very odd. They obviously had a bit too much to drink. The establishment did nothing to stop them.
Great brunch! Love the bottomless mimosas!
Very pleased. Will go again Food was awesome. Great menu. Good service. Too many flies outdoors
Thank you StephenR so much for taking the time to give us a review! We look forward to serving you again soon!
Amanda was our server & made our experience so special!!
We live Libbys and the whole team makes every dining experience great!
Great brunch/lunch with friends. Food excellent with a wide variety of choices. And love those $5 Bloody Marys. Not a major issue but inside in the middle of the day it was very dark. Maybe add some more light? We will be back!
Great food, great ambiance, great staff! We will be back! The chocolate flourless cake was our favorite!
The food was excellent and the service was even better. Server was very knowledgeable about menu. Crab cakes were delicious. Chicken club was also delicious.
The food and service was really great. We like the outdoor seating option under the patio roof!
Table was ready when we got there. Food was great. Service was impeccable.
Excellent food and cocktails.
I took a group from work for lunch, and everyone loved it. The food and service were both outstanding!
Libby’s is awesome!!
Terrible experience! Rude wait staff, poor service…would not recommend.
Sat outside on covered patio with only 3 other tables filled. Music blaring loud above our heads entire meal. Should have requested it be turned down….next time I will. Service very mediocre. For so few people in the restaurant, service should have been much more attentive. 2 meals cold and sent back to kitchen. 1 of the drinks was forgotten, and server was reminded just prior to meal coming out that we were still missing a drink. Not the best visit. May try again. Maybe just an “off” day for the restaurant.
Bourbon salmon and glazed Berkshire pork chop were excellent in a lively atmosphere.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We look forward to serving you again soon!
This was my second time going and we loved it.
The food was delicious!
First time diners. Lively and energetic place. Seated right away, with OpenTable reservation. Ordered drinks and took awhile to get them. Having said that, their bar was very busy. We ordered the chicken croquettes for an appetizer. They were very good but at $9.00, overpriced. For entrees, my wife ordered the crabby patty sandwich - a patty of crab and shrimp. Nicely fried, not greasy and very tasty. Accompanying aoili was fantastic. She was asked if she wanted Parmesan garlic fries instead of normal ones and she did. Unfortunately we weren’t told there was a $3.00 upcharge for these. I ordered the ribs. Slightly dry. The only taste was from the glaze which wasn’t great. To their credit (and I am grateful) when I complained they immediately took them away, offered me another entree on the house, and took the ribs off the bill. As a first timer, I didn’t know what to order and obviously ordered wrong. Because if their great customer service, I will be back.
The food was great, the service was great. The only criticism I have it was very noisy. Perhaps you should consider putting some sound deadening material on your walls and ceiling.
Libby’s has great food and so fresh!!
Great food and nice atmosphere. One of our go-to restaurants in Sarasota.
Deceptive. Went for the happy hour specials with 6 people. They were out of 2 of the 6 happy hour appetizers. Asked which happy hour beers were on tap and ordered one, however when we got bill we were charged full price and waiter stated that it wasn’t one of the happy hour beers. We had specifically asked which ones were included. Service was very slow.
Good for a cocktail and a salad/ burger/ sandwich
Amazing value for money.
Really tasty food and good service!
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review! We look forward to serving you again soon!
We love Libby’s ! The food is a great value , is always delicious and we have always had good service .
Good food; waitresses all helped each other. However, not their fault, but not enough help for the evening. Outside - too many flies,
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review! We take alot of pride in our team work! We look forward to serving you again soon!
