    We went to Tripletail a year ago when we were visiting Siesta Key. Based on our first experience, it was a "must return to" restaurant, and we were not disappointed!! Heidi, once again, took great care of us...fun, friendly and efficient. The food was amazing, and the atmosphere, great! I highly recommend giving this place a try!!

    We eat here a lot but the service was not our usual experience. We got no bread and butter and the server never returned during the meal to check on drinks, etc. Not a deal breaker as the food is terrific!!!!

    Overall positive experience. Dined outside and enjoyed patio ambience. Excellent service from Colton. Our party appreciated the bourbon selection. Calamari appetizer had an excessive amount of breading unfortunately. Three fish entrées (snapper, grouper, tripletail) were delicious and well prepared. Rice and accompanying vegetables unremarkable. Crab cakes heavily filled and small for price point. Crème brûlée acceptable. Enjoyed our dinner but would not rush back.

    Eight of us enjoyed dinner last night at Tripletail. Everyone loved the food. The tripletail with the cream sauce was divine. The crab stuffed shrimp was delicious and they allowed my friend and I to split it at no charge. The guys loved the ribeye, they said the seasoning made the steak. We all had drinks and appetizers as well. We were shocked when the bill came in under $600. We all agreed Tripletsils was a great choice and we would be back! I would be remiss if I did not give a shout out to John for his excellent service that definitely made our experience very enjoyable!

    Excellent food, good value and service. We ate outside on the covered veranda and it was very nice but a bit noisy. Also someone was smoking a cigar OUTSIDE the restaurant but the odor filtered into us since we were the closest to the street. But he left fairly quickly. Will definitely go back. Very fresh, well prepared food. Worth going.

    With family from out of town, we wanted to showcase Florida seafood. When we arrived, we were not rush and we could enjoy our beverages (good selection of IPA beers and NZ sauvignon blanc.) We started with Triple Tail's great calamari dish for an appetizer that was more than ample for four people. We enjoyed different dishes, each excellently prepared. Three of us were able to taste their offering of key lime pie. We spent several enjoyable hours. We marveled at the vitality and energy in the restaurant. If you want sea food, to Triple Tail.

    Our first time trying Tripletail and it did not disappoint. Service was excellent and food was superb. We had the mussels and all thought they were some of the best we have had. All 3 of us had snapper for dinner, each of us chose a different preparation and all were wonderful! We will definitely return!

    4 of us dined here and our meals, appetizers, drinks and service were excellent. We started with oysters Rockefeller and bacon wrapped scallops which were wonderful. Also the crusty bread with regular and cinnamon butters was so good. Crab cakes, shrimp and tripletail entrees were all excellent. We love Tripletail and look forward to our next visit.

    we had mixed reviews from my group of 5. My dinner was great, coconut shrimp and grilled scallops. Grouper sandwich also good. and the red based fish chowder was tasted by all of us and was outstanding. Fish salad appetizer mixed reviews, lobster bisque too much sherry, tripletail entree tasteless, and chicken marsala too salty. Of course, our shared dessert of chocolate mousse cake was liked by all. Christine our server was very, very good at her job. Overall, Tripletails is one of my favorite Sarasota restaurants.

    We had never been to the restaurant before last night. It is an amazing place - great food and very friendly service in a nice environment. We sat indoors but they offer outside seating as will. My wife and I both had the tripletail entree (which we had never heard of) blackened. It was terrific. The friends who accompanied us are foodies and they were both impressed - "best mussels ever." We will certainly tell others and will return again.

    Our food was disappointing because we asked about crab cakes and were told they had them but not that the price had gone up so much since our last visit ($10 more than before). The food on the plate came lukewarm at best.

    Their entire staff was very friendly and courteous from the person holding the door upon entering to the ones opening the door upon leaving. Our waitress was Teri and she was excellent in all aspects of her job. The food was plentiful, but we all found the tripletail to be so mild, it was almost tasteless. However, the crab, lobster and cheese dip appetizer and the fish camp chowder were delicious. We will definitely retun but perhaps grouper next time.
