They never disappoint. Everything was great. We will be back soon.
None of the servers wore masks. That bothered me. I can't recommend it until that changes, either the need to or the use.
Great service. No masks on hostess server or bus boy
An all around great experience! Our server Katherine was amazing! Prompt, friendly, very knowledgeable about the menu, and anticipated our needs throughout the dining experience. Hostess and Manager were friendly and accommodating. Food and drinks were prepared perfectly! A must visit when in the Sarasota area!
We had Adam as a waiter who was excellent, food was very good, my drink was pricey which for what was ordered surprised us. We knew we were there during happy hour but it was never mentioned until we asked. We always feel that this should be mentioned up front. Like feature items, etc.! We were at another restaurant that we actually handed a couple our happy hour menu after the waitress left and they were like wow didn’t know. I would have tipped that waitress half of what she deserved for this absence of information. Our only problem was we had flys that swarmed our table with e open windows when our meal was served, very annoying. Because Adam wasn’t right there we just kept shooing them away. Then he came back and closed the window which I wish we had just done! Great place would return.
Love, love love this place - their burger 🍔 is divine? Drinks are too strong for me, but I’m sure most people love them!
The very best of the best.
Thanks to a great chef, and terrific staff
Excellent food and service!!
Great atmosphere and food. Returning this weekend with a group.
Very nice evening. The Crab and Avocado appetizer was outstanding. We had Halibut and Pork Belly with Clams for entrees - both were very good. The standout was the sweet potato side covered with pesto (highly recommend!). Thanks to our server, David, for excellent advice.
We brought our friends from Reno to dinner at Veronicas. They loved it from our waiters first introduction to our last sip of wine.
We had the snapper whole fish which we have had many times (never can go wrong).
They had the Branzino and couldn't stop raving about it.
We had the fish dip, oysters, ceaser and mussels to begin.
Fabulous meal. Cannot say enough about Veronica's. Bring your friends, you'll never be embarrassed:)
Food was terrific. I had fish, others in the group had pasta and steak. We all loved it. I was concerned hostess and others were anti maskers and packed in like sardines
As always Zandor and Caroline greeted us as old friends!
Met Christine at the bar she was friendly and fun. And Dillon was our server outdoors and as usual handled our request to perfection.
Thanks everyone who makes Veronica’s the special place that it is .
Great food, service and ambiance!!! Definitely a top dining destination in the Sarasota area.
Job celebration. First time to Veronicas Excellent
Crispy fish, which has been fabulous in the past, was over cooked and disappointing
This was our favorite restaurant while in Sarasota. They could be more accommodating with outside dining requests but otherwise very enjoyable and very good food.
Best oysters in Sarasota/Venice area!
We go at least once a week.
EXCELLENT food! Beautiful outdoor dining!
We always enjoy the decor and the food, but I ventured off the seafood to order the steak frites and it was not authentic like a bistro steak frites and not very good. I’ll stick to fish next time.
Our overall experience was fabulous!
The food was outstanding, superior quality.
Our server Parker Was exceptional, extremely professional and courteous. The whole evening was a home run! We’re going back four days later!
Everything was perfect again
We had a mediocre dinner on one of our prior visits to Veronica's last year, with the rest pretty stellar. This time, our experience helped us order better. We had another outstanding dinner, especially with the help or our waiter Dillon. He was helpful with selections, timely and efficient in handling his group of tables serving us hot food. He didn't hover yet seemed to notice us when we needed something. The portions were very good, and our beverages were also top quality.
It had been over a year since we went to Veronica's - pre-pandemic, and this visit was noted as our anniversary on the open table reservation. We also asked for an outside table and our reservation was for an early seating. However, they gave all the outside tables away within the 10-15 minutes prior to our arrival without reserving one for us, while inside tables apparently get reserved (with a note on the table). I was also disappointed that they were unaware of our special occasion as well. The waiter was happy to provide a dessert when he found out.
The food and service was wonderful! The food flavors were delectable and so fresh! The restaurant’s decorations were delightful and unique. My family will definitely be returning. This restaurant is one of a kind!
This was my first visit to Veronicas..the food was exceptional,our waiter Adam was excellent and we’ll definitely be back.So many items to choose from,I want to try them all! I especially recommend the mezzo plate as a starter..the bahn mi crispy chicken sandwich was wonderful,so was the mahi BLT..
Love the oysters!
We were there! We had a great meal! Server and manager were so friendly. Please credit us for our visit. Thanks!
Veronica never disappoints- their oysters are always my favorite part. Very knowledgeable and attentive service too. CB is my all time favorite server there!
Good food but I’m a stickler for good service, it should match or surpass the quality of the food which it didn’t. Simple things like not having water in 3 out of 4 glasses at the table and not wiping off spills or excess food between courses are both personal pet peeves of mine.
Katherine V is an excellent server and was very accommodating and friendly.
My wife and I had a very enjoyable meal. Our server, Katie was great in a casual sort of way. The food was generally very good. I would have rated 5 stars, but the crab and avocado app that others reported having really liked fell short for us. It was more akin to a Japanese roll when I expected more. However the raw oysters, scallop/mushroom app and whole Branzino were exceptional! Good but not great wine selection in my opinion although the back bar was full of options and the cocktails looked tasty (we only drank wine). I wouldn't hesitate to return.
All was wonderful.....server should offer the price on specials
The hostess and house manager, as well as most of the staff were not wearing masks. The Bar area was full, and there was no social distancing. I questioned the manager about it and he gave me a rude answer. Our server and most of the kitchen staff had masks on. We stayed and ate, but I did not like the attitude of the manager and I will not be going back. I realize Sarasota has no mask mandate, but many restaurants and shops are keeping the rule, as well as trying to space patrons out a little. Veronicas is upscale and the manager did not have good people skills.
Love this place, the food is always amazing - and the outdoor aesthetic is great!
Best of the best
If you are looking for a tourist fish restaurant - book somewhere else - Veronica's is an amazing restaurant that could be in any city - reminded us of the Smith in NY - the service - Katie(Katherine) our server could not have been more attentive - she was well versed in the menu and helpful in selecting dishes that complied with Celiac - Gfree - go to Veronica's hungry - you will want everything on the menu - which is what we had. Oysters - briny to perfection - we had to order more - the potato rolls with Lobster Salad - the best! - mussels in the most incredible broth - scallops - shrimp cocktail - tuna cocktail - mushrooms- we ordered a lot of small plates and loved every single one! The whole branizno was served with an entire plate of hummus and veggies - which is a dinner in itself- enough to share for the table - we will be back - wish we could transport Veronica's to NY/NJ to enjoy year round!
Helpful, friendly staff and well-prepared fish in a trendy setting.
Wonderful food , service and atmosphere
