Enjoy your libations while taking in the gallery exhibitions, scoping out the action in the Hotel’s working artist’s studio and enjoying a view of Sarasota’s arts district.
A new hidden gem in the Art Ovation hotel!. The ambiance alone is worth the trip, with artwork of many different mediums and genres throughout the lobby and restaurant, many of which are for sale. But the food is outstanding as well. From the crispy Brussel sprouts with sriracha agave to the crab-crusted grouper and delicious desserts, this is a must-stop on every Sarasota foodie's list!
It was great except I got stuck in the ladies bathroom stall due to a broken deadbolt. I was in there for 25 minutes screaming until my husband got worried and a hotel person said someone is screaming in the ladies room. It was pretty frightening !!!
Lovely place for lunch. Food is good and the room is beautiful. Have been there for lunch on four occasions and will be there again!
Pleasant surprise for a hotel. Frankly one of the better restaurants in town. have a rooftop drink first.
Service was impeccable as was the food we ordered. The cocktail was ‘the best’. Impressed.
My husband and I were celebrating his birthday. The manager came to our table and asked if everything was fine. The wait staff came to our table with a beautiful dessert. We will be having dinner there again soon.
Thought this restaurant was upsale. When we entered, we discovered it was not. Very loud rap music was playing. Lights were bright and harsh. Very loud overall. Had atmosphere of a cafeteria.
We started with cocktails at the roof top bar then had dinner downstairs. We opted to eat outside as the weather was pleasant. Very quite outside by the way. Food was excellent . We all ate different dishes: steak & frites was on point, fried whole snapper was perfect, raviolis and shot ribs were tender and so tasty! Service was friendly and very competent ! We met one of the very talented and friendly manager “Freddie Mercury” who made our evening even more personable. We will return... we had a lovely evening !!
Amazing experience, service food and facilities were all wonderful. Definitely now on our favorites list. Great value for money👍🥂😊
We started on the rooftop bar. Lots of kids as the pool is there. Noisy but fun with fancy unusual cocktails. Most are $12 each. Nice view of downtown and the gulf. Dinner is on the main floor. Restaurant was almost empty. Most people were in the lobby bar and the rooftop bar. Food was excellent. Loved the sautéed Brussels sprout appetizer. Scallops also very good. Prices are all ala carte but seemed reasonable. Nice hotel restaurant.
Poor wine selection. Fish over cooked.
Food and service was excellent. Definitely will be going there again!
Food was excellent. We were the only table occupied and it took tooling to get out food
AWFUL. Management was HORRIBLE. Server was excellent but too many things out of her control. It is clear to see why the restaurant was empty. Truly a shame. will never return and move the idea of other banquet functions away from the property.
We waited 50 minutes for out food. The restaurant wasn't even busy. We won’t going back.
The entree offer on the menu was not available. Our second choice took forever to be served. Very disappointed at the unprofessional service. Had guess with me and it made me feel embarrassed.
Delicious food and exceptional service.
Loved everything about it!
Unusual for a restaurant in a hotel to be good enough to go to for a meal even when we are not staying there. Rooftop bar is cool.
It wasn't as good as I remember it the first time. Maybe a different chef? It was worth the price the first time, but this time around, not so much. I was a bit disappointed.
It was uncomfortably cold. The service was hurried. Our appetizers were brought as our cocktails were served with no interval to enjoy our drinks. The serving dishes are attractive but not functional.
It was a shame because overall the food was good.
We will not be back.
We had so looked forward to our night out at Ovation. When we walked into the lobby, where was an overpowering perfume odor. When we were sitted, we asked the waitress about the smell and she said it's a floral scent they have pumped in through the air system in the hotel and they have no control over it, but many complaints. This is a very sad for this restaurant has it totally overpowered any smell from the food.
It’s always a Special Occasion to Dinner there.
Our dinner looked like a work of art on a plate. Great service and a delicious dinner - our first visit. Everything was served hot and timely. We look forward to many more visits to Overture Restaurant. It is also very convenient to the local theaters.
Love the shishito peppers. The ice cream sundae was bland & servers interrupt a little too frequently.
The valet parking was $10
Need to address the roof top bar soon. Too much sun and not enough shade. I feel sorry for the bar tenders.
Not up to Marriott standards. Couldn't get a Vodka Gimlet, no Rose's Juice? Tom Collins instead? Wife's first glass of wine was white, switched to red, the server poured it into the same glass. I let her take my knife and fork with my salad plate, but only got a new fork, no knife for my entree course.
I chose this spot to have a girls brunch and celebrate my “daughter’s” 30th Birthday! We loved the entire restaurant and Darhoda was a wonderful waitress! We shared some meals and everything was delicious! We finished the meal with infused donuts!
$50 buffet that had the value of a $15 buffet. Nothing special.
Our server was very polite and professional. The scallops I ordered came almost completely raw. It was disgusting. I let them know and they kindly remade my plate. They were then cooked perfectly the second time but the risotto was cold. After reading the reviews this seems to be a common problem. We won’t be rushing back.
Great service and great food.
Wonderful food and service....looking forward to our next visit.
Buffet on Sunday was average quality and service was terrible
Menu limited. Portions small. Food not cooked to correct temperature. Service amateur.
Not a good except the wait staff was very good
Easter brunch amazing!!
Good location. Limited menu but did order all appetizers for dinner and it was very good and satisfactory. Live music in the lobby which we could hear while dining. Rooftop bar and lounge quite nice on top of hotel - a must stop.
The restaurant was amazing, as was the food. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly. I stayed at the hotel as well as ate at the restaurant. I proposed to my now fiancee at the rooftop bar. The staff helped with all the arrangements and made my life allot easier. We enjoyed the experience so much, we will be having our rehearsal dinner here as well. This was by far my best experience at a hotel and I stay at hotels over 100 times a year, all over. I would like to thank all those who took part in making a great memory for us, that we will never forget.
Lively restaurant in a hotel that welcomes locals as well as guests. There are always art shows and just a really comfortable place to be. The food is quite good and reasonably priced. Service is attentive and low keyed. It is becoming a neighborhood favorite.
