This was my first visit to Shore. We brought another couple that was visiting for brunch on a Sunday and we were very pleasantly surprised at the high quality of food and moderate cost of this restaurant. The atmosphere was lively but not too loud to talk. We will surely be back!

Food was uniformly excellent. Everyone loved their dining experience. Drinks didn't seem as strong as we are accustomed to, less alcoholic, lots of ice. Tasty food, (calamari app was tasty, but could use more calamari), good service & pleasant ambiance. Branzino & shrimp were nicely cooked. Ribs were tender and tasty. Polenta was tasty with nice texture. Tuna tartare was delicious. Salads were good. We'll return.

My favorite restaurant in Sarasota. I have never been disappointed. The other night was no exception. Our server was pleasant and very friendly. Food (cauliflower appetizer, ahi tuna, burger, brazino, and shrimp/scallop dessert) and drinks were expertly prepared. I loved the white sangria. Can’t wait for our next visit.

The service was ok. Not very attentive. Probably due to the fact we didn’t order drinks so the bill wasn’t going to be large. Guacamole was bland. Ribs were good and ahi tuna was good as well.

Service was great. Presentation of our meals was very impressive. However the food was actually tasteless. We had the seafood salad and the chicken sandwich. Neither one of us enjoyed our meal and last over over half.
The lunch menus was limited. If you need gluten free options ... even more so.

LOVED this place, went back 3 times during our most recent trip to Sarasota! The drinks could have been slightly fresher/better for the price, but the food and portions more than made up for that. We loved the atmosphere and ambiance, and will definitely keep coming back/ recommending!

I've always loved Shore and it was nice to be back. Great food (loving that lobster & avocado cobb salad tower!, amazing kale salads and lovely truffle fries), good value for money and lovely outdoor seating. However. service was really lacking this time. Our male server didn't smile once, didn't ask how our food was, never asked for a refill and was very distant, almost to the point of being rude.

Wonderful modern feel to the Shore. I love that, whether you are inside or outside, you feel like you are outside. The patio and padded benches with fire pits are a great place to start or finish. I had the sushi sampler this last time which was great;however, their meatloaf and hamburgers are amazing so as you can see they have quite the range of choices. Probably one of the best places to go on a date but that being said, I am usually with a friend or with one of my adult kids, so really any grouping of people will fit this restaurant. It is also nicely situated over "The Shore" clothing store, also very cool and beachy. Because this restaurant is on St Armands Circle, you have the added ambiance of shopping, ice cream shops and art stores. Really can't beat it!

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. I did not have a great experience in the past, so had avoided going. I will be back! The parking meter situation was confusing for my guests and two of them got $25 tickets. It took me an additional 10 minutes to figure out the app parking, ugh!

Shore is one of our favorite places to eat in Sarasota. Love the location in St Armand's Circle. The open concept is very nice. We especially like sitting out on the balcony overlooking the activity in the circle below. The food is always outstanding and the service as well. Highly recommend! We are locals and we love taking our visitors here to dine.
