Great menu and selection. It was our second time there, and our waitress from our first time went out of her way to say welcome back even though she wasn’t our waitress. The meal was perfect and they accommodated a couple of special requests. And we highly recommend the lumpy lobster bisque.

The food, service and decor is fantastic. We could literally pick every item on the menu and enjoy it. Every time we come to Sarasota this is one of our dinners out. And, during Covid they are following all the guidelines to keep everyone safe.

The cocktails were amazing! I had an old fashion and it was delicious! Also had the bone in veal chop - amazing. I wasn't nuts about the sauce but you can always ask for it on the side. I highly recommend and will definitely be going back!

We social distanced & ate at the bar - service was excellent. Had the Lobster Scampi which was good but could have had a bit more flavor. Chunky Lobster Bisque is a must try!

Great meal, even better service. It is hard to find a restaurant with a diverse menu to accommodate different tastes, Speaks does it very well. We first visited was last year when we stayed in the area, this was our second visit. We will definitely return when we are in the area again.

Food was over cooked and dry. Pasta was sticking together. We had to ask to replace the pasta and by the time it arrived, we were done with our food. No bread on the table

We were seated upstairs at the suggestion of the hostess as it Asha’s a “better view”. Since we were not seated near the window that was not as delivered. Also, we were next to a large family group with several children under the age of 7 that were basically unsupervised and running around their table area screaming until their food was delivered. Made the entire upstairs seating area sound more like a noisy bar instead of a semi-intimate dining area.

Found Speaks last October while in Sarasota. Loved it! Just brought some friends there to celebrate a milestone birthday and I was so happy they also loved it. Food was incredible, our server Samantha was the best, and they did a great job with social distancing. Can't wait to go back this October !

Third time I had dinner here in2 weeks! Jesse was our waiter this time and he was just fantastic too. He was friendly (but not too hovering), and gave great recommendations. Our meals were once again delicious as well as the bar drinks. It was a great time and I highly recommend you don't miss this great restaurant!

Loved the place upon walking in and it didn’t disappoint! Excellent & knowledgeable waiter named Scott. We took some of his drink and food recommendations and were so happy we did. I personally went for the Hot Lobster Roll and it was the best I’d ever had! Portions were a good size and we were too full for dessert. Can’t wait to go back!

It was all going well till my fish arrived well done after asking for it to be medium rare. I was then told that their policy prohibited that ! Shame they forgot to mention that when I ordered my food.

Great ambiance! Staff were wonderful and the food and drink selections outstanding! Will definitely go back as there are so many great options to choose from. Love how it’s readily accessible near the busy circle in St. Armand’s but located a short distance down a side street to steer clear from large crowds.

We sat outside on the veranda on a rainy night. It was beautiful. But, our waiter Jessie made it even better. He was funny and attentive but not over-boding. My friend and I shared the crab /spinach dip which was delicious with plenty of crab. We also split the clams linguini. Just as good. The homemade pasta made a big difference.
