Got my order in the wrong order after making it clear how I wanted it served Ordered two appetizers One of them was to be brought out with my husband’s main dish and they brought it first so the first appetizer I didn’t want after so I had to change it to something else I was disappointed! I had wanted to share the dips with my husband as he had his soup
Good food, pretty place, friendly service. Some of our food was good and some was amazing. Try the yellow heirloom soup. Addictive!
Wonderful staff and the food was amazing. A must try restaurant.
Our third dining experience at Shore. We all had fish: 2 Halibut specials, 1 grouper and 1 snapper. All were delicious, as was the lobster crab salad and the shrimp/guac ceviche we shared as appetizers. The flourless chocolate dessert was also top notch yummy! Waitress was great and restaurant was very accommodating when we arrived sat reservation time but asked if we could push our res 1 hour later till 8:30 so we could do some shopping. Will be back again and again for "shore"
Service was top notch. We had a superbly cooked tomato soup with chevre, which was the best tomato soup I have enjoyed in my life. Then we followed with a ceviche and guacamole appetizer that frankly, left a lot to be desired. It had no taste. Finally, we followed with a lemon risotto covered with scallops and shrimp that were as good as the tomato soup. We ended up with a chocolate mousse pie that was out of the world. I would recommend this place, to anyone. Just skip the ceviche and guaca appetizer
Nice evening with friends but reservation system was strange...couldn't have 6 people at 5:30 or 6PM, only 5PM but the tables were not full by the time we left after 7! Then we also couldn't have the tables with chairs that had backs, even though they were NEVER USED in the time we were there. Plus the evening special would not be known to the staff until 5:30! The special is usually delightful so we wanted to know about it, but our reservation was for 5PM -- odd "rule" which eliminated us ordering it!
I was pleasantly surprised by my recent visit to Shore. The food was wonderful and even better was the early dining menu. My friend and I both had the bronzino and polenta, which were wonderful.
My husband has been reluctant to try the restaurant again, but with the new menu, I hope I can change his mind.
We enjoyed the cauliflower app and it was amazing. We were a party of four who each enjoyed All very different dinners which were uniquely made. I’d highly recommend.
One of our favourites in the beautiful St Armand’s Circle are of Sarasota. Make sure you ask for a table on the outdoor terrace to enjoy the late evening sunshine.
Very very good .....will be back again soon ...thanks for a great meal
Beautiful scene on balcony with great vibe. Too bad the food did not match the decor. Disappointed.
The service and food were excellent. I meet a girlfriend for lunch and we enjoyed our glass of wine and fish tacos, which were excellent. One more thing to add, they have a nice wine list. Sometimes it is hard to find a good wine by the glass.
Food was excellent. Very well cooked. Service was attentive and polite. The ambience was ok (but possibly impacted by it being an unseasonably cold and wet evening). Value was reasonable for the location. Worth a visit.
Love this restaurant!!!
Nice enough place but not as "special" as some would have you believe. The food is decent without being outstanding, the noise levels greatly exacerbated by some bad choices in music. The waitress was very good, informed and prompt. The bar? Get your waving arms ready. Understaffed for a Saturday night in my opinion. Not a bad place by any means but the fare is not a match for the line to get served.
Celebrating our anniversary, food and choices were very good, enjoyed this restaurant.
Service and food was excellent. My friends were impressed!
Greeted with a smile. Great service, wonderful atmosphere, and delicious food.
Joseph our waiter was very professional smart good looking polite and one of the best waiters we have ever had. Oh and the food was fabulous too. Definitely returning and recommending. Thank you for a beautiful lunch experience!!👊🏻😊👍🏻
Never been disappointed in any meal at Shore. Loved the black grouper special and the red snapper. Fish has always been fresh tasting and well prepared. We are fishermen and know fresh fish! Meat loaf is a delicious comfort food dinner and always take some home for the next day.
Always a lively and fun spot. Food is consistently good. One person in our party was vegan, and unfortunately, our server did not know “vegan” definition, and neither she nor the manager had seen a recent Herald Tribune restaurant review, lauding the vegan options. There was only 1 vegan choice contrary to the review.
We loved our first visit to Shore, after hearing consistent raves from friends. From our perfect waitress, to the food, to the retractable roof, everything was perfect! Even entering from the rear parking lot was easy ...thought it might be loud, but animated chatter added to the ambience. We will return, with family and friends.
We met good friends at Shore for lunch. It was a perfect Florida day so we sat outside on the patio above the street. The ambiance was wonderful and the service was great since they allowed us to linger over two hours. The food was wonderful - light and tasty. I had the salmon salad with the most delicious red and yellow beets. My friend had one of their bowls and said it was outstanding. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Average, staff did not know much about menu, and was told we would have a comped desert for occasion- they never brought it- we got the check.
It was just ok
I ordered scallops.....3 scallops for $31!
Ryan is a fantastic server. We had a great time at Shore, catching up with old friends and he didn’t make us feel rushed or pressure us into ordering or turning the table. He was attentive but not overbearing. The atmosphere was great as usual, especially for a night with great weather to be outside on the deck. Every dish from apps, to entrees, and beverages, were well plated, dressed, and complimented each other. Can’t complain about a thing. Looking forward to returning!
Service was better than it has been.
We stopped coming for about a year because service had been so bad! Glad to have a good experience again.
Had a great meal. The branzino and ribs were fantastic.
Had Sunday brunch. First we were told the bar was "running behind " and had 30 minutes for drink(an average bloody mary). Next my wife was brought the wrong meal 4 times (must be a record). The computer kept telling waitstaff to deliver the original wrongly placed order and finally we received another diner's order. We kept dealing with random food delivery personnel and not our lost waiter. Never offered further drinks despite our marathon brunch. Never offered any compensation or even an apology. When finally delivered the food was mediocre-certainly not worth the trouble. Perhaps better service if you sat at the bar. There is a cool and trendy vibe-they have a DJ for brunch so maybe more a social place than a dining establishment.
Excellent food and service!! The Bloody Mary’s are not up to par though. The tomato mix used is waaaay to weak for my taste. Highly recommend the meatloaf they do for breakfast. Also the smoked bacon egg Benedict is phenomenal!!!
We went twice on our visit for brunch and after dinner drinks. Great service !
delicious, fun, great service, it was a really fun night, thank you!
One of the best places on the Circle. Great food and a great place to people watch from above too.
Great food, excellent service
Great service, friendly place, consistently good food. We were there for happy hour, had the peppered salmon. Excellent! One of my favorite places to dine
We tried this place last year when we came to Florida on vacation. We loved it so much we went twice while we were down there this year! The restaurant is beautifully decorated--cool color scheme, creative seating. You can eat in their open, airy dining room or out on the terrace. The food is phenomenal. Each time we went we got the tapas. The portions are large, I recommend only three for a couple. The tapas menu changes, but we enjoyed the shrimp ceviche, guac and chips, and the shrimp with soba noodles. But our favorite plate was the branzino with polenta. Out of this world! And don't forget the craft cocktails! My favorite is The Thai One. Just be aware it has a tiny sliver of a super hot chili in it! I don't touch it with my fingers; it is extremely hot! We will definitely go back next year when we visit St. Armand's Circle in Florida!
This was our first visit. We’ll definitely be back
We love going to The Shore when we are on Longboat Key. The food was delicious our waitress Brooke was great. We did ask for a table outside and called to make sure we could sit on the balcony but when we got there there was not a table on the balcony. We sat in the back room which was not what we expected and was disappointed.
