It is much too noisy for a nice dinner with friends.

And, for some reason, I did not get my Open Table points despite the fact that the four of us were there for our 6:30 reservation on June 15.

Amazing Peruvian food...all 4 of us tried as many options as possible...simply one of the best meals/experience/servers that we have ever had. We had been told by a number of people that SELVA was "thee" place to go and we were not disappointed in any way!

Their ceviches are the best! Shrimp mango is our favorite. We took advantage of the Savor Sarasota restaurant week which offered a prefix 3 course. Lovely choices. We are never disappointed here!

The food and service were incredible. The noise level however inside the restaurant was loud and it made it difficult to have conversation. It’s too bad because otherwise the restaurant would be on the top of my list.

I went during "Savor Sarasota" week and was so impressed with several things. #1 the portion size was so much that I couldn't finish it. #2 The foods presentation is so unique and even artistic. #3 the service was prompt and friendly. My meal tasted amazing from the shrimp ceviche appetizer (brought in a martini glass), to the salmon with red pepper tamale rice which was wrapped up in a banana leaf, to the pot of chocolate mousse that looked like something out of a magazine. I highly recommend this place. It's also in the heart of a vibrant nightlife area.

I went their for Savor Sarasota seek. The choices were very limited. Two ceviches for the appetizers and three main courses. The salmon was delicious, but the rice was luke warm.
I still think this is an excellent restaurant if you are ordering from the normal dinner menu.

Great food even with the limited Savor Sarasota menu. Service was excellent and so was the atmosphere. The noise level is very high and that was the only negative here.

Second visit to Selva, wife brought me for my Birthday. This is a find. One of the top three restaurants on the Suncoast in my opinion. Cervice, interesting and inventive menu choices. Fabulous Spanish Caesar Salad and the Best Chilean Sea Bass I have ever had. Just tops all around.

Selva is always great! The wait staff is attentive and friendly. Their cocktails are awesome (especially their blue-cheese stuffed olives). Extensive ceviche menu. I would highly recommend the Aji de Gallina spring roll appetizer (Classic Peruvian spring roll filled with creamy spicy pulled chicken, pecans & avocado aioli) and the New Zealand Rack of Lamb (with truffle chive risotto, roasted asparagus, macadamia nut herb pesto & rosemary demi-glace). Really, though, you can't go wrong, no matter what you order.

The food here is easily the best in Sarasota, the staff are great, the service timely
We come here regularly, sometime there is no valet, and this is the only downside if the weather is wet
