over the world, including from the New York Times, which write that Selva is “serving possibly the best food in Sarasota,”
and that “everything on the menu is worth trying.”
Salmon was not good. Very fishy tasting. Last time I had the duck - not good as well. Prob will go back but only for drinks and apps. Too bad.
They know how to treat the customer. Great service and food, waiter and drink server quiet and quick. Great experience!
Awesome meal as always.
Our go-to when we want superb food in Sarasota. Never disappointed.
A truly great experience!
Fresh, Authentic - the best Ceviche I've ever had. Can't wait to return.
I sort of gave up on Selva a some time ago, thought I would give another try. Several issues: It's not the season, so there isn't much effort to please (e.g., only one special beyond the basic menu). The paella was not bad, and the sea bass itself was actually very good, but accompaniments -- corn "paste" was sweet like candy and just weird; the vegetable served with the sea bass were very ordinary and not very tasty. The bread was totally tasteless - no imagination there. Ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir -- the one on the by-the-glass list, and it was quite awful. Frankly, in Sarasota, many better restaurants don't even try in off season. This is one of them.
Always an excellent meal The food has such flavor
As always an excellent meal. Great knowledgeable staff, exceptionally friendly server. Fantastic evening.
Great service and superb food. The duck is outstanding.
Great staff. The drinks and food was spectacular.
Two out of four courses were outstanding - one was good and one was not to my liking.
Server (name unknown)was awesome-very busy atmosphere.
Fabulous food always consistent best tuna main course anywhere
Food is exceptional, presentation so creative, flavours fabulous. Stephen, our server was great..... he did not rush us and offered great suggestions. Selva is a favourite when we visit Sarasota. Highly recommended.
Selva Grill is becoming one of the best restaurants in the theatre district, if not THE best. Everything so tasty!!
We always enjoy Selva Grill. This time focused on appetizers and Ceviche. Tuna Tiradita is a must have. The crab cake was amazing and the scallops were excellent. Cannot say how much we enjoy every meal we have at the Selva Grill.
Great food and drinks. Service was outstanding. Decor is a little tired. Noise level too high.
Awesome short ribs. Beef Empanadas were great as well.
Had a beautiful evening with great friends. The waiter was kind and attentive. Food was really good. The tomato appetizer was full of flavor, a must try, presentation was excellent. I had the skirt steak which was cooked perfectly, and it was tender. I applaud the chef for his skill in making it! The lighting was unique as the color changes periodically on the back wall, which has a cool painting. We will defiantly be going back!
We were happy to find we would be arriving during the Happy Hour and were planning to try all the different food items. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were informed you could not get any of the Happy Hour items outside of the bar which seats about 6 people. Our server told us people actually line up and wait for the doors to open in order to get a seat. So we sat in the empty dining room because the
Don't pass this resturant up it's great.
Second time this week.
Main Street's Sarasota finest.
We have been to Selva Grill 3 times since we moved to Florida and it is always excellent. Very interesting menu and great presentation. Would definitely recommend Selva Grill!
Fantastic food prepared and presented fantastically. Service wasn’t what I would call the most attentive.
Awesome as always. Clients always appreciate the experience and food.
Always a good evening. Fantastic knowledgeable and friendly staff, Blake was really attentive and observant. Great evening.
I was pleased to see a nice selection of ceviche offerings. The taste and presentation of the meal was exquisite. The wine selection was good, yet not overpriced. Our server was friendly yet quite professional and attentive. Thank you for the birthday chocolate surprise! Will definitely return with friends. Highly recommend.
This has to be on your list for an exceptional dinner, the best food in Sarasota. Greatest staff.
Thank you for a delicious dinner, fun night out, great group of people.
Keep up the good work
A little too loud, but a great restaurant. Food is wonderful and the service is attentive.
The best restaurant in Sarasota...
Solid restaurant. Always a winner never a disappointment
Food was oversalted on 3 of 6 dishes- not the best meal we’ve had there
Pre show dinner. Consistent awesome food and drinks
Selva never fails, still our favorite... Great location
Awesome, everything was great
There for 10th anniversary. Everyone and everything was perfect. Ambiance was perfect. Music. Special was amazing.
Great food. Seafood was outstanding and the sides were creative. Lamb portion was generous and delicious. Wonderful spot for a special occasion or just a great meal
The service was great, food was beautifully plated but taste wise average. Very loud. We waited 45 minutes for our meals but it was packed Saturday night.
We always have an excellent meal at Selva Grill - always perfect.
Sensational! Simply fantastic is every way! I’ll be back!
