    We own a vacation home in siesta key and have been wanting to try Selva for a long time, we finally got to last night. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived till the moment we left from the food to the service to the manager checking on us it was all incredible. We sat on the sidewalk and the people watching was amazing. The food was so delicious we cannot wait to go back we want to try everything on the menu!

    Very good food and excellent service. The atmosphere is energetic & festive so it makes for a fun date night. It gets very loud on weekend nights inside the restaurant so if you’re going with 4 or more people you might want to request an outdoor table so you can hear each other.

    Awesome food, impeccable service. Wellmade interesting cocktails and food. We had a wonderful evening at Selva, sat outside and enjoyed the free sidewalk entertainment. Ask for Christine, service was friendly but not intrusive, knowledgeable, attentive and very professional and pleasant.

    One of the best skirt steaks I've ever had. So juicy and tender. Charred perfectly and a perfect MR in the middle. The potatoes were cooked beautifully and very tender and flavorful. The service was amazing. I will definitely be back.

    Selva was the first restaurant we ate at in Sarasota and it has been among our favorites ever since. We always eat tapas style, getting 5 small plates for the two of us to share. The food this time seemed slightly below their normal high standards. First, we understand that they change menu items from time to time; that’s healthy. But does it have to be our favs that get dropped? 😉 we still lament the loss of the late, great shrimp piri piri. Now crab Napoleon is gone. Also, the tuna triadito seemed slightly more salty and the Galina Spring Roll didn’t seem as great as usual. It might have been a slightly off night for them or us. The service was terrific as always. We will be back when we return in the Fall, and I’m sure Selva will remain among our favorites.

    Both the food and service were phenomenal. The crab cake was the best we have had at any restaurant. The paella and skirt steak were both very very good. We were surprised with a special Anniversary dessert which added to the service being impeccable

    Absolutely loved the food and the ambience. We were disappointed with our waiter who was a bit arrogant and not helpful. We wished we had another waiter/waitress - the others seemed lovely
