Ordered calimari. Rather tough.

Had party of 6. While I waited for group to arrive, went to bar which was empty. Fellow behind bar texting and looking at phone. Then turned back on me and proceeded to fill a bin with sliced fruit back . It was around 3 minutes before another worker advised I was there. Food was good but one guest asked for medium well on filet. Came rare. She sent back and center still rare. I noticed very few tables occupied recently. Not as good as it was. This was my third time here.

There consistently were long waits for food/drinks among may patrons. One couple waited 45 minutes for an olive appetizer and waited 10 more minutes before walking out. We waited at least 45 minutes for our food. It’s a nice place but they need someone to run a tight ship here bc service is everything!

Nice location and ambiance. Good service and fabulous live music. Food was so so. My company had the shrimp special which was over cooked and dry. I took a bite when he mentioned it and it was very over cooked which was a shame as it was an interesting dish. Our starters were good. Buratta for me.
But I would go bs k for the duet. The woman singing was fabulous and the songs chosen were great.

Service was terrible. Our food took over an hour, and then meat was rock hard. Saturday night, don't think the kitchen or staff can handle the number of seats they have. We've been before on a week night - good service and food that time.

Salute' was very busy.
Service was very slow both to get drinks and food.
Waiter didn't have any personality and was hard to call for more water, food status etc.
He seemed overworked - Looks like the place could use more servers

Was good for family getting together with young teens and a grandma
Service little slow but pleasant
They sat us in quietest place in a restaurant that’s noisey outside. Loud music
Food was good and everyone finished all dishes
Good everyday meal not very special

This dining experience was by far the most disappointing experience I have ever had. We came here to celebrate my mother’s 75th birthday and what a mistake with so many quality restaurants in Sarasota. The service was so bad and slow, 25 minutes to get 1 drink. 3 hours for dinner. Wrong orders delivered, my wife ordered Dover sole that was supposed to be deboned tableside, which it was but not correct. The fish had so many bones in it my wife had to stop eating. The manager and owner were not helpful at all. I was told they were busy with people showing up late for reservations! Unreal

It was the worst - waited over an hour for our food at the bar and then everything came at once - appetizer and dinner. Said I was allergic to shrimp and ordered grilled shrimp and grilled calamari and said yo eliminate the shrimp. - said no problem and it appeared. We left and didn’t eat - never been treated so bad and have been there many times. Never again
