At Wink Wink Food & Drink, we're inspired by the classic food and atmosphere of the 50s and 60s, like the chic supper clubs and breezy Tiki bars, but we serve it all up with a fun, modern twist. Our chef blends local ingredients and flavors to reinvent old favorites, offering dishes that are both a nod to the past and a taste of the contemporary.

In our lounge and pool bar, you'll discover a thoughtful selection of classic cocktails, each with a playful name that perfectly reflects our easygoing vibe. This blend of past and present creates an ideal setting for everyone – families, friends, and anyone in between – to come together and enjoy the moment.

We're dedicated to ensuring the quality and creativity of our cuisine and drinks--we take them seriously so you don't have to.

    Even having lived in Sarasota for decades, Wink Wink was a discovery for me, a happy one. The food was exceptional, as was the ambiance and the service. This will now be my go-to restaurant, surely when going to the Van Wezel..

    Beautiful restaurant, nice bar, outdoor and indoor seating, very modern. The food was meh and the service was sooooo slow. Nice server, just terribly slow and it wasn’t busy at all. Overall, I may go back to sit at the bar and have a drink, I wouldn’t go back to eat.

    Went for breakfast. It is a very beautiful restaurant, great looking place, very modern. The food was just okay, nothing to write home about. The service was very slow and there were only 3 seated tables. Our server was very pleasant and did a good job, but it was just terribly slow service and it wasn’t busy at all.

    Great atmosphere and cozy feeling for a restaurant located inside a hotel lobby. Drinks were fantastic and everything ordered was amazing. Definitely a great place to go for a laid back experience. The outside seating looks amazing and decor is whimsical yet tasteful.

    We had a great time at Wink Wink. The drinks were unique, the meal was presented very well, and the flavors? Crazy good! If you can’t decide, my recommendation is the meatloaf- literally the best I’ve ever had, anywhere. Five stars for service as well. Our waiter (Jack) was great - not hovering, but always there when needed for something. We’ll definitely be back in the future.

    The patio was pretty. There were items missing from the menu, the 4 of us each got something different and all of the dishes were meh. No favor!

    Was disappointed that we were at 2 separate tables. Service was sooooo slow. Our server was very pleasant and did a good job, but it took so long to get drinks and food. Too many food dislikes to get into here. Won’t be returning.
