OpenTable Diner (Tampa)

Today marked our six month anniversary. Jeff was our sever and was charming, witty and knowledgeable about the menu. We didn’t expect any special favors because of our special occasion until we received a complimentary dessert at the end of dinner. Of course after we left I realized I left my credit card back at the restaurant. I was about four blocks away when I realized this, and Jeff chased after my partner and I to return our credit card! To say that this restaurant shows extra care and appreciation towards their customers is an understatement. My partner and I will return for every anniversary dinner we have from here on!

This was our second visit and just like the first time we were not disappointed. It’s on the pricier side but the service and the food was outstanding. Look forward to our next visit!

The noise level at Selva is the only detractor for this rating. My daughter has an app on her phone that determines the level of noise and it was at 82 decibels!

Excellent table, very busy night. Our friends did. Not get drinks for ever! The server never came back to see if they wanted another. I guess if was just really busy. My dinner was great.

Blake was our server and couldn't have been more wonderful! He made great suggestions (which we followed) for our Mixto ceviche and I loved my paella. My husband loved and would suggest the Whole snapper which was excellent as well and definitely save room for dessert - we loved the bread pudding! We will definitely recommend this place and will visit again soon. Thank you Selva Grill and thank you Blake! Keep up the great work!

We love Selva and also sitting on the patio. The food is always perfect and the wait staff cannot do enough for you, Do yourself a favor while in Sarasota and make reservations! It’s worth every penny.

As always the food was excellent and service was impeccable. Our table was available at the exact time of our reservation and the entire staff was very focused on our needs. Our fish dishes, salmon and swordfish were top notch. One of the best restaurants in Sarasota and for that matter many other cities as well.

We tried the Selva Grill on a friends recommendation. We found it to be extremely noisy and the seating to be tight. The food was fine, but not great. On the plus side, the service was top-notch.
