A must when we visit SRQ. Creative seafood centric menu, love the ceviche. Great drinks and wine list, nice bar, cool vibe.
The first thing you notice when you enter Selva Grill is the noise. The background noise is extreme. Maybe I'm just sensitive but it overshadowed our meal. My wife and I, seated at a 2-top could hardly hear each other. Food was very good, but a little pricey, as are many downtown SQR restaurants. I had the braised short ribs and my bride had the skirt steak (each $35-37). We both enjoyed our dinners. I had a nice glass of cabernet with dinner. Again, a little pricey at $13. Server did an excellent job.
Due to the background noise, we will try a different place next time.
Always great food and service. One of the best restaurants in Sarasota.
Our Meal was excellent. The flatiron steak signature dish was outstanding.
We have eaten here many times and the food is always excellent.
This is an ideal venue for a meal before the theater etc
Visiting from Maryland and ate here on a cold Tuesday night. We were right by the windows so it was cold but everything else was perfect. The food was fresh and inventive and our waitress was able to answer our questions about new flavors we were trying. We shared the cervice and Peri Peri shrimp to start, both excellent. I had the rack of lamb which was perfectly cooked and generous and my husband had the fish special. Definitely our best meal in Sarasota, in fact we booked to return tonight as there were so many enticing items on the menu we didn’t get to try on our first visit.
We had friends from LA visiting us. This was their first exposure to Sarasota....They were very impressed that we have such quality restaurants - they had never had Peruvian food before and
loved it. First for Pisco Sours as well. From Siesta Key to Selva, Sarasota left them with a very different opinion of what Florida is like. The food was creative, and very good. The restaurant is lovely, and there were lots of young people having dinner and congregating at the bar- totally
disproved the idea that Florida is all Blue Hairs.....
The food is always excellent but it is a noisy place when it is full -- and it always seems to be full!
Hadn’t been here in several years but had great experience with friends visiting from out of town!!! Food and service were great and look forward to returning!!!
Food was good but a little pricy
