Shore restaurant is our expression of a mid-century, al-fresco coastal eatery. Creative recipes are our specialty, combined with local favorites, all served in our open air dining space. From your first sip of our signature cocktail, to your last bite of our Key West Shrimp and Scallop Risotto, the entire Shore experience is nothing short of a beach day makeover, with laughter, cool vibes, and delicious eats.

We had an excellent dinner and we loved the atmosphere and vibe of Shore. However, there was a board that had apparently fallen off the edge of the booth and my husband cut is leg on the exposed nails. The manager apologized briefly, but I would have expected a little more attention to matter...maybe offering a bandaid of a free drink.

The service was friendly and not obtrusive. The menu provides good choices and the dishes we chose turned out to be excellent -- well prepared and beautifully served. Add reasonable pricing and it is hard to find any fault at all with this restaurant.

Lovely setting and decor. Original artistic elements. Very good service. We were seated in the quiet section of restaraunt which was perfect for that night. Flatbread topped with grilled veggies, hold the goat cheese, sub some San Danielle ham- yum. Very accommodating if you have food allergies, btw. Small salad and a glad of red wine. My dining companion loved the clam chowder.
Not cheap but priced accurately, the value is there.

Beautiful ambiance, good portions are small compared to prices (ribeye & seafood risotto, burger/fries, mac & cheese side to frued chicken), taste of food was a bit blah (fried chicken). Over $125 for family of 4 - should not leave hungry. Service was ok, nothing spectacular.

Food was amazing. We had the kung pow calamari, the chopped salad and the lemon risotto with shrimp and scallops. So flavorful in all the right proportions. Sizes are moderate and if you are used to what most American serving sizes are, you may want to order a few appetizers. Sitting outside on a nice night is so wonderful. Restaurant is on the second level so you get to look over the street without having people walk right by you. Will definitely be back.

My waiter (Austin) was excellent. Food was good but the sushi was too fussy. The Thai curry mussels were incredibly tender and yummy but the broth was flavorless.

This dinner was a celebration of our 46th anniversary, so we wanted it to be special. First trip here, we arrived about 20 minutes early for our reservation & were seated right away. We sat in the lounge area which was nicely decorated and comfortable. Our server asked about our drink order & what we ordered was not well known but he thought they might have just received some so he went to the bar to make sure, yes they had it. Our food was tasty & presented very well, portions were perfect, filling but not to the point of feeling stuffed. We were a little worried about parking since the area of the restaurant has many shops & restaurants, previous trips to this location often resulted in driving around hoping to find a place to park. Voila, there is a new parking garage right behind the restaurant, free on weekends...that's why were were early for our reservation, no driving around.

We had a reservation and went to the bar for a cocktail before we sat down. The bartender wasn’t very friendly so we only gave her a 15 percent tip. She never came back to see if we liked our drinks. It doesn’t take too much to be nice to people.
Then we were seated and had Casey as our server. She was absolutely a breath of fresh air! We mentioned that it was my birthday month and she took it upon herself to give us a dessert on the house. Thank you!!!

The two of us really enjoyed our dinner at Shore and would recommend it to others and go there again ourselves. We were there at 6:45 p.m. on a Tuesday and they were very busy. When we reserved on OpenTable we requested a quiet table, so were seated along the back wall, where tables for two were lined up along a banquette. The tables were far enough apart that we did not feel like people were right next to us or could overhear our conversation. We both have some hearing problems in noisy places and had no problem hearing each other here; there was constant noise but it was not intrusive at all. The service was friendly and efficient; the only thing we had to ask for was salt and pepper which wasn't on any of the tables. The food was very good. We asked to split the brussels sprout salad and were offered the option of having this done in the kitchen for an extra $2, and the waiter said we would each get more that way so we did it. The salads were plenty big and were what we needed salt and pepper for as we found them a little bland; they could have used a bit of sugar or more of the candied nuts. One of us had the Ahi Tuna Mignon, which was very good, and the other had the Miso Marinated Black Grouper, which was outstanding. We also shared a dessert, a chocolate Irish bread pudding with pistachio ice cream, which was good, similar to a lava cake but not gooey in the middle. In all, this is a very nice spot for a good meal.

My The Thai One drink had a birds eye chile pepper in it. Normally it is very tasty. I couldn't drink it because the chile made burn my throat. I had the branzino dish. It was good. My husband's cocktail, The Barrel Aged Cocktail, which had bourbon it was very good. He had the miso grouper for dinner and he liked it.

I have been to Shore three times now and the food is always excellent. This is one of my favorite places to eat in the Sarasota area. I usually sit inside but the last time we went we sat outside in the front where they opened the awnings after the sun went down. It was perfect. I love this place.
