Rebecca provided the best service one could imagine. The Shore is the best restaurant on the circle.

Our second visit did not disappoint. Amazed by their ability to mass produce food, serve it efficiently and keep the quality high. We had grouper which was prepared perfectly. The Butterscotch Dessert is the stuff dreams are made of. Their prices are a bit on the high side but not out of line for the area.

Shore had a well balanced interesting menu with well executed inotive dishes Kung pao calamari was a good way to start followed by Florida shrimp with scallops a real winner. Just one thing we find with American restaurants ( barring high end/ Michelin standard) is the lack of imagination and flair with desserts that doesn’t match the main menu

We really enjoyed our meal at Shore. We both had fish dishes which were delicious! We had a great table right along the rail looking down on the sidewalk. Great for people watching. My only negative comment is that our table had stools instead of chairs. It's difficult to have a relaxing meal when you are teetering on a stool. I realize that you need to sit high for the view, however, if the stool had a back at least that would have been slightly more comfortable. I noticed this in the restaurant as well, that the tables had benches instead of proper chairs. This is my only complaint, other than that, the evening was great! We will definitely return!

Very creatively described menu.......poor on execution, and greatly overpriced.
Dishes were heavily salted.....especially the risottos.
Pork chop had to be sent back (overcooked).......replacement was delivered timely.
Mid level quality wines were priced too high.

Our waitress misunderstood our order (a salad and an entree where we planned to split both) and she brought them to the table at the same time. As soon as we explained we had hoped to get the salad first, eat it, and then enjoy the entree, she took the fish entree away and said she would have the kitchen prepare another one once we were ready. I was quite impressed with her quick resolution leading us to be very happy with the experience.

Great location after Sunday theater matinee! Be sure to share the full-size calamari- it’s different and delicious! The four of us had a turkey w/ Brie sandwich, a Seafood Cobb salad, the Bronzino & a Shrimp w/ soba noodle - each wonderfully unique.
Highly recommend- and love the dinner menu even more!!

Quirky service this time around, but the food is just so good. We've always had excellent service at Shore, but this time around our server was not at 100%. Two guests received their cocktails, while the other two waited another 10 minutes to get theirs. We gave an order for appetizers, and then the server never came back to take our dinner order. We had to flag him down. Didn't matter, however, since once again the food was so delicious! Still our favorite restaurant when on Longboat Key!

Dinner for four with friends from out of state. Highlights - stylish decor, furnishings, lighting and design; menu variety and originality; outdoor seating; friendly/energetic server. Lowlight - a cool night so we elected to sit in the indoor back dining room. Table seating was comfortable and the lighting/design was cool. But, the music playlist projecting into the dining area was waaaay too loud. Okay maybe for a bar but not a classy dining room of this level. Just inappropriate for the setting, regardless of the age range of guests. It made dinner conversation difficult and unpleasant. Really, our only rap on Shore was the noise level in the dining room - from the piped-in music. And we are all music lovers. Come on, Shore owners, think of these details!

Go early. Have a reservation. Or prepare for a significant wait. When the retractable roof is open and the temperature is mild or cool, Shore is perfect atmosphere. Absolutely jammed at the bar and waiting area. Food/menu was very good. But hardly worth the crowd. I would amp up the menu and add $10 an entree and make Shore THE restaurant in Sarasota. Again, really good, go, enjoy! But, so much more potential.

Shore has been around for a few years and consistently does a nice job. Two at our table had vegetarian selections. I asked that my kale salad not have nutritional yeast in it and was told they complied, but there was still a faint taste of it in my salad. All other aspects of our visit were fine.

While not touristy, its a lovely setting to take out-of-town biz guests for dinner. Thanks to the roof retracted on a lovely evening, atmosphere was lively, but you could hear one another without yelling. Kale salad and shrimp ceviche were a hit. Good wine list.

It was my first time at the Shore Restaurant but it won't be my last. It is a good restaurant with good service and a fun atmosphere. It does have an inside but you feel like you are having dinner outside. I had the lobster/shrimp/crabmeat cob salad and it is simply divine. The wine list is good and so is the drink menu. Can't wait to return.

 (Dallas)·Dined on October 17, 2017

The restaurant is beautifully furnished and designed in a mid century coastal look which I hope is a trend in Sarasota. The hostesses were helpful. The waiter we had was very knowledgeable and friendly without being overbearing. The food was eclectic. We shared the olive bread and spreads which tasted ok, but didn't knock anyone out. One diner has the meatloaf which she enjoyed, yet wasn't too impressed with, another, the shrimp and scallops over rice which didn't have many shrimp or scallops in the dish, and I had the branzino which was fresh, but very mild tasting without much interesting flavors in the dish. The cocktails were fun and delicious. I would come back for the atmosphere and the outdoor dining, however the food wouldn't draw me in. Updated 60's classics would be fun to eat, but there doesn't seem like there is a food direction in this menu or any outstanding dishes someone would return to have.
