Wonderful authentic Italian. The Branzino, served table side, was incredibly moist and delicious!
Gute Küche sowohl für Fisch wie für Fleisch, sehr freundliche Bedienung und angenehme Live Hintergrund Musik
Such a nice place — live music we got there late after my sons graduation but the waitress and Kitchen was super accommodating and allowed us to order even after the kitchen was probably scheduled to be closed. The food was awesome we had the veal saltimbocca and it was excellent!
Always consistently good and great outdoor atmosphere. A favorite place to go when visitors come to town.
Martinis, Lasagna and Veal Saltimbocca were excellent! Our server, Tim, was very good!
amazing! loved it!
Wonderful experience, as always. Our guests had always wanted to try Salute, and said they will definitely be back. Food was great, there was a great duo playing, and service was great!
I have walked past this restaurant for awhile, I’ve been drawn to the beauty of the outside and finally had a chance to try it. Highly disappointed and won’t be back. No happy hour, only if you sit inside at the small bar. Beef carpaccio was more like roast beef lunch meat, way too thick. Needs to be shaved, sliced thinner or pounded down. Gnocchi and the penne pasta, I honestly think the penne pasta was out of a box and the gnocchi was just as disappointing. I won’t be back. Beautiful restaurant for outside seating but too many other great authentic Italian places to eat.
Quality of several entrees was disappointing.
Our server, Aaron, was very accommodating and friendly. The food was amazing, I had the sea bass that melted in my mouth. Hubby had the special risotto overflowing with seafood. A little pricy but definitely worth it! We will be back🙂
Food good. Service excellent. Barbara made the night special.
Service lately has been hit or miss. Not impressed lately. Service not that great. Too many other restaurants in the area. Not sure we will be back
Very good restaurant. Asked for the wine room, but it was for a private party, which was fine.
Sat in the main dining room which was nearly empty, so the noise level was very very low.
I did get a email stating that this reservation did not qualify for points. did not explain why I am not getting points for this visit, but If I would of known that I was not going to get points, I would of chosen a different restaurant .........
Another nice evening at Salute” for us. Dining outside was great on a mild evening. Service was very good. Our choices were really well prepared: Caprese salad, lobster ravioli, artichoke chicken, and veal parmigiana were all excellent. Drinks and wine were also good. Salute’ remains one of our Sarasota favorites!
Second tune in a week.
Great food, great service, great ambiance.
Salute is a great restaurant with amazing food! We really enjoyed the excellent service.
food was delectable; service perfect; nice seating outside, but band and singer too loud
always excellent food & wine.the servers are attentive,friendly & knowledgable.
Despite working downtown for almost 15 years, this was our first time visiting Salute and we had a lovely time. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and had a great attitude. There was a singer there (we went on a Tuesday evening) and that added a nice ambiance. The weather was perfect so there were no issues with dining al fresco. The menu is varied enough to not be boring and offers several vegetarian options. We will go back to try some other dishes.
Been to Salute several times and never was disappointed.
Poor quality ingredients, amateur preparation. Very disappointing considering the cost.
We had an enjoyable time
This is our second time at Salute! We are from CT and visit Sarasota once a year. We decided to come back again because the food was so good the first time. The Branzino is the ONLY Branzino I’ve had in the US that is truly like our experience in Rome. This time we came on a Sunday night and there was a fabulous background entertainment as well that made the experience even more enjoyable - Melanie Masse. The food is top notch, service is great and the atmosphere is very casual and comfortable.
One of our favorite downtown Sarasota restaurants. The Bronzini is excellent.
The Whisky Festival was
We love it here everything great love the staff love the ambience we will be back many many more times
This was our first time at Salute but won't be our last!! Had such a good time. Our waitress Natalia was great very attentive. We all (7 of us) especially loved our cocktails. Food was very good and it was a busy Friday night. They had live music too but it was too loud or distracting. There was indoor and outdoor seating with little white lights around the foliage so pretty. Glad we found this gem!!!
Friends from out of town. Our “go to” restaurant.
Disappointing. Food was pretty good. Service was matter of fact and without friendliness or interest. Server did not check back at all during meal and had to be reminded for additional drinks. Indoor room had no ambiance or decor. Outdoor patio was loud with their music and music from Mattison’s next door. Would not have allowed conversation. Has potential for nicer Italian decor and better service. Return unlikely.
Fresh & fabulous. LOVE broccoli rabe on the menu! Tiramisu one of the best so far in Sarasota...
There was a lot going on downtown that evening we were seated inside which was perfect we got to visit and we could hear each other talk. But outside it look like everybody was having a good time they had music nice couple singing!!I’m sorry I cannot remember our waiter’s name but he was excellent I ordered them the Bolognese sauce and he suggested a different type of noodle to go with it and it was excellent I need to come back and get the dish again bread pudding was very good and my friend enjoyed her meal also I know I will return
Trop chère pour la qualité de la nourriture. Le serveur est vraiment peu courtois car il voulais absolument nous vendre une bouteille d’eau. De plus la rapport qualité est pas bon. On avons commende 2 plat de patte au champion qui été trop moyen. Pour ses 2 plats, 50$
Vraiment trop chère

Great outdoor dining experience!
Music much too loud. Service was unbelievably slow.
It’s always a pleasure to eat in the lovely outdoor setting and this time I brought my two houseguests for the first time and they were wowed. Our appetizers, the olive trio and a shrimp and calamari over arugula were tasty. The food was delicious and although our red snapper was a bit overcooked, we still ate it all! It was a busy Easter day so I’m sure the restaurant was stretched.
Delicious food but poor service. Would go back again because of the cuisine.
Salute has always been my go-to restaurant , especially before theatre. However, the
"entertainment" they have hired recently is so loud we were unable to complete our dinner in peace. We will have to rethink returning if they insist on this loud, lousy music duo.
attempted to go to Tommy Bahamas, but no room at the inn. So chose Salute, and never looked back. Food was excellent, risotto perfectly prepared. Tuesday night they had live entertainment and the vocalist was remarkable..to top it all off the weather was sublime.
Two of my party were less than satisfied with the veal parmigiana, myself and my other dinner companion enjoyed our meal. The cannolis were delicious.
the server,Mary, was friendly,knowledgeable, attentive & very helpful which all made the 60th anniversary celebration most memorable.Of course the food also contributed to a great meal.
