Always amazing food!
Mozaic is a fantastic restaurant with a wonderful menu. On one side of the menu booklet were the daily specials and on the other their standard items. With many fine choices we turned to our server, who by the way was excellent throughout the service, for advice. He suggest a duck confit noodle bowl which he sampled when given to him by the chef. It was a terrific suggestion and the meal was truly excellent.
Delicious food and impeccable service, friendly service. Nice ambiance.
We are very happy that Mosaic is located in downtown Sarasota. It is an excellent choice for dinner before going to a FST performance.
I was visiting town and took a group of five of us to Mosaic for dinner on a Tuesday evening. The service was excellent - attentive wait staff and they could advise us as well on different menu items as well as the wine/beer. The food was good. I would have said excellent too but a couple of our party asked for their steaks medium rare and both came in as medium well. They didn't send them back so I can only assume they also enjoyed the food as I did. Downtown Sarasota has a few restaurants that aren't chains to choose from and we were definitely glad to have had the opportunity to enjoy Mosaic.
Not cozy, not good for special occasions there was nothing special about it, food was way over priced, service was shootie, food was not dependable - some things very good, most very bad. I ordered the scallops - they were good but cold; my husband ordered the skirt steak - it was stringy and tough and cold; my sister ordered the salmon - although it tasted fine it was also cold, all the food was on 1/2 of a large plate and the rest of the plate was empty - very poor presentation. My grandson ordered the surf and turf most expensive $39- it came on a tiny plate with 1/2 of a lobster tail, a tiny piece of overdone steak and they forgot to plate the crab cake - unbelievable! The bread was served by a someone who wasn't trained on how to use the utensils and had a hard time getting the too big rolls to each persons plate. The butter was so hard that it just crumbled when we tried to take some. The dessert menu wasn't interesting - mostly ice cream. The menu in general did not have very many choices.
The lighting was bad - and there was a cold breeze all the time.
When making the reservation - wasn't able to talk to anyone, could only make it thru their website or leave a message for them.
I have been a repeat customer many years....this visit was bad. Three people, three bad entrees. One diner had a filet, first one was full of gristle, sent back to kitchen, second filet full of gristle and practically raw. The other two diners had the hogfish special....served lukewarm, very small and mine was overcooked. The side vegetable had to be sent back, undercooked and braised as described on the menu. We spoke to the manager about an adjustment on the check....he seemed very lackadaisical but did deduct a round of wine and gave us a small gift certificate, for 3 people, to use on a future visit. I felt the entrees should have been removed from check, we were more than happy to pay for our wine. On top of the problems, both diners who had the hog fish were slightly nauseated the next day. Unacceptable for this restaurant.
Food was great but the service was really bad!
Bad food. The fish of the day was not fresh nor tasty. Decided to returned back. No follow up from manager about it, just ignore the issue. Two other tables next to us also have issues with other food. Not a good night. Felt like we wasted an evening in this restaurant . This was our third visit . We used to enjoy the food there, but we found out they change the chief.
We dined with our freinds early on a Saturday so there was not a lot of business yet. Our server was very attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent-my Cioppino (off the daily specials menu) was full of a variety of fresh shellfish and fish and had a delicious light tomato broth that I had to stop myself from picking up the bowl and slurping it up. My husband' s Ahi Tuna was equally delicious and plentiful as was the Pad Thai. The only negative we encountered was the portion size of the short ribs was quite small. A very nice dining experience overall. We definitely will return.
