Great atmosphere
But my filet was sub par and for that price we could have gone to Capital Grill

As Always Zandore and the team pulled off a flawless evening to celebrate Mother’s Day. Mom was very happy & impressed. Chef was right on last night and the oysters and muscles fresh as can be. Loved discovering the back story to the name Veronica’s and how it ties to the art work through out! 5 star…. Can we give 6?

Good food: we had halibut and redfish and raw oysters. Excellent service. Good selection of white wines to go with the seafood.

Our last experience several years ago was amazing. So we thought we would go again for Mother’s Day. The service was great. The staff is friendly and professional.. Two of us ordered the catch of the day (Red Fish) and the dish was so bland. It was disappointing. We enjoyed the Lola wine and the oyster appetizers. This group owns several other restaurants in town that we love , we all agreed that we will stick with those in the future.

Second time dining there and requested the same table and the same waiter, CB, who is absolutely terrific. Oysters were amazing and the Caesar Salad is a must! Highly recommend the halibut. Excellent food and great place for any occasion. Will be back next week!

Outstanding food, wine, and ambience. Outside music way too loud for conversation and communication with the wait service. Wine list B-grade for a restaurant with such superlative other attributes.

The food and the presentation was outstanding. This is an underrated superstar. It’s a little loud, but it’s not a white tablecloth restaurant, although with the quality of the food it could and should be. Some of the best food in the area. We will be back again and again.

The entire experience was fantastic. Our waiter CB did a great job. He was professional and made us feel as if we belonged in your restaurant. Loved my Halibut and my wife felt the same way about her muscles. Also the Oysters and Caesar Salad were fresh and tasty. We will be back.

First time here. Celebrating wife's birthday. The food was excellent had the oysters for our appetizer they were very fresh and delicious. I had the special Red fish entree that was very good and my wife had the Branzino which she enjoyed very much.
I will definitely be returning Veronicas in the near future.

We love love love this restaurant. We celebrated a friends birthday and Daniel and Erin made it special but they make every visit special. The good is always incredible. The oysters were superb, the Mezze plate is oh so good. Two of us had the whole snapper and it was so fresh and tasty. And don’t forget the banana bread foster. We always gave it and also tried the apple crisp which was also a winner. Can’t wait to get back there.

My husband and I had a terrific dinner on a Thursday night recently. The restaurant was a little short staffed so the service was slower than it should have been, but our server acknowledged the situation and comp'd our starter and dessert which was very, very nice.
The raspberry PT and Unami oysters were fantastic as were the Steamed Black Mussels in the most amazing broth which included orange peels. Delicious! Next was the Crab & avocado with wasabi ponzo which was melt in your mouth delicious. We shared the special Thai Crispy Snapper whose presentation was fab and flavors mild yet complex with the spicy sauce. We finished with Banana's Foster Bread Pudding which was good, but not out of this world.
All in all, we loved our experience and will definitely return on our next visit to Sarasota.

I love the food here. I do wish that they had more local fish choices but I always enjoy the food. Had a drink at the bar before we sat down for dinner and as always enjoyed the ambiance and vibe at their bar. Bartenders Daniel, Erin and Christine are always so welcoming and this visit was no exception. Dinner was fantastic and it was a first time visit for visiting family. They were thrilled with the food and can’t wait to return. Our waiter Adam was very attentive and professional always making sure we had everything we needed. Veronicas is my go to place in Sarasota.

Love Veronica’s! It’s our neighborhood restaurant and one we go to frequently because of the consistently good food, friendly staff and wonderful ambiance. So nice to have a place that recognizes “regulars” and makes a point of making you feel valued.

Three of us fined here at this busy cool place. It has a lively bar action, mixed ages of patrons, cool vibe. The food has been very good each time we have fined here. I mentioned in the reservation that it was our granddaughters birthday and upon seating three glasses of champagne showed up. Made the dinner more festive.
