Awesome place for date night!!! Great food and atmosphere!!!
We love Selva Grill and it is one of our go to favorites when visiting Sarasota!
Very pleasant well appointed clean restaurant with well trained wait staff. Very creative Chef with beautiful preparations.
I was served a drink in a cracked glass. The food was mostly flavorless. The new york strip was the only thing good about the whole place. The dessert menu was awful. Clearly made by the cooks not by anyone with any experience. So sad.
Excellent as always
The bartender and server were great. The decor is slightly odd but the presentation of the food is great. Prices are high, but food is good quality. Ceviche was excellent.
Selva Grill never disappoints. Took some friends with us who had never been there before and they loved it!
The space was tight so it was hard to get around. But overall best food I’ve ever eaten and as a culinary student, it was beautiful food!!!
Great flavors. Great service. Reasonably priced. The atmosphere is also very upbeat.
Always a treat. Service was perfect. Not a fan of the section off the bar. Was not blown away with the Sea Bass (this time). Still very good.
my daughter and her family were visiting and had not been to Selva. They LOVED it! Ceviche, steak, server, etc!!
Best place! The food and service is always amazing!
Our favorite place to celebrate birthdays and happy family events. Our whole family loves Selva Grill!
If you're looking for the consummate dining experience Selva is the place to go!
The food is devine and the service is excellent.
A very enjoyable evening for my wife and I plus our two guests. Everyone's food was delicious and memorable.
best food in sarasota. love this place food is great servers are polite. atmosphere is excellent
One of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure to dine at. Our server Glenda was incredible, ask for her. She is so knowledgeable and attentive !! Enjoy !!!
Fourth time we’ve visited Selva. We make it a point to come here whenever we travel to Sarasota.
We eat out alot, and its become a challenge to find new and delicious foods. Selva is all that.
The flavors are wonderful, with new plays on tastes that are inspired. Cocktails prepared just right. Service
Is great too. This trip we had wild ceviche, then Empanadas, then Seafood Paella, followed with a dessert.
Wine selection is the only thing that could use a little improvement, but still workable.
For appetizers, The Empanadas were so good! The Selva Ceasar Salad were amazing! I highly recommend skirt steak & Seafood Paella
Amazing food and presentation! Service is always top notch. Wish I could afford to eat there everyday:)
Everything was great, food was delicious. L Lemonade could it been better for the price you pay. Just be ready to spend $60 per person.
The food was outstanding overall, and the server was attentive, though seemingly nervous. I found the chairs outside to be somewhat uncomfortable. I am fit and not overly tall. If a complaint was to be made it would be one that's somewhat common for restaurants of this ilk. I ordered the surf and turf and probably could've eaten a bit more. A 6 oz filet, one prawn, a crab cake that was largely the 1/3 of a zucchini that housed it (not my favorite btw) and a perfect ice cream scoop of starch. That being said everything on the plate was cooked perfectly and well presented.
This was our first time to visit. A very good dinner. The single issue I had; is that the restaurant prides itself in being a "date night" restaurant. Maybe it was the luck of the draw. We made it on bachelorette party night... We will go back. But I think next time we will sit in the bar area where it seemed to be more subdued.
Love this place!
Always a great experience!! Definitely will return again loved the skirt steak
This is one of the top foodie experiences in SRQ!
The service mirrors the top notch food for a compete experience
Always have fun drinks and the best flavors to go doing with them
Tried a bunch of apps -yum
One of my favorite restaurants in Sarasota. The food is inventive, different, and delicious. I never get past the Cerviche or appetizer parts of the menu, as I love these offerings. I take anyone who comes to visit to Selva, and often, they want to go back before they leave.
Everything at Selva is wonderful, food, drinks, service, presentation, artistry, ambiance. I have only one complaint and that is the table water, which is unfiltered and therefore has the unpleasant taste and smell of sulphur. We all immediately noticed it. A restaurant of this caliber can surely afford to finish the dining experience and treat its customers to filtered water!
The whole fried snapper and the sea bass were cooked to perfection and very tasty.
The veal chop special was delicious.
As always, great service, great food and great ambiance. What was even more amazing was that our server, Michelle, remembered our names from 2 years ago, from our first visit. We have been back quite a few times since then, and she was on leave, but amazing memory and made us feel so welcome. Great staff retention, and great place. Always recommend this to our friends when they visit.
I live in Jacksonville and surprised my girlfriend by proposing to her on our trip to Sarasota. When I looked up dining options for a post engagement celebratory dinner, I discovered Selva and was impressed by the reviews, menu, photos, etc. I'm pleased to say they were accurate. Creative cuisine, elegant presentation delicious food and drinks, great service and a wonderful atmosphere. Obviously we were in a great mood but still, well worth the price if you are looking for an awesome dining experience!
Octopus, salmon, bone in veal chop (special) and chocolate crème brûlée were all delicious.
Food and service and drinks were outstanding!
Interesting and exotic menu. Excellent presentation with different flavors.
Dined early, modest crowd. Good server. Ordered Wild Ceviche; excellent, tangy. Ordered black grouper special. Overcooked, plate did not have the usual WOW factor, overpriced. But regardless, Selva competes against itself as no one in SRQ has such fare. But, but, my favorite cocktail, the Pisco Sour, was not cold, and inch below the top, and did not taste right. Better checkout the bartender on July 16.
Excellent food. Lots of Flavors. Great service.
Excellent food and great service. I always order the skirt steak because it’s delicious...and it was this time as well!
The fried whole Yellow Tail snapper is a must try!
The perfect restaurant for, We love it
