No doubt our expectations were unreasonable from all the overwhelming reviews. In short, the second floor ambience is lovely and the open air dining at the rear is perfect on a warm evening. The service is excellent, although a bit rushed. Having perhaps 2 minutes between when appetizers leave the table and the entrees arrive doesn't allow you to finish a conversation, your cocktail and consider and order what wine would go best your entree. Guess I can live with that. But although the food was well prepared, it was essentially bland and tasteless. Perhaps the Sarasota crowd doesn't take too well to strong seasoning? Anyway, we'll give it another try, but at a minimum, salt and pepper (seasoning) should be a kitchen prerequisite rather than an option.
Great food & ambiance!
Met old friends there and had a wonderful time. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. Ambiance is perfect for catching up. Will go back often.
We were visiting Sarasota for my birthday weekend. We decided to have lunch at Shore. We had as appetizer the ceviche, guacamole with chips and as for entrees lobster salad and salmon salad. We enjoyed our food . We will be back next time we are in the area.
Table was ready at time of reservation. Menu was varied but not overwhelming. Service was efficient and pleasant. Food was quite good, especially main dish, nice combination of flavors, dessert sounded exceptional but was not. Wine by the glass was very good. Overall the dinner was a very pleasant experience. First time there and I will go back. Open rooftop fantastic.
Love a lunch with friends..no noise, bright, friendly with wonderful healthy options
