Excellent as always. Only complaint was the air-conditioning was a little too cool but it was early and there were few patrons. They happily turned it off until others showed up. Very accommodating.
Very busy. Service slow and erratic. Food not as good as usual. Management good at looking but not good at helping!!
Food was amazing and service was excellent!!!! A must go to in Sarasota!!
Great food and ambiance. Service is top notch and professional.
We had a reservation for 8pm and we only got our table at 8:20pm. What is the point in making a reservation if they are going to delay your party in 20min???
Good was excellent. Def a scene and bar was busy. Service was a bit slow. But overall very good.
Really wonderfully prepared food. Loved everything. Paella was large and delicious.
Drinks excellent. Expensive but worth it.
Our food and beverages were excellent. Our server was attentive without interrupting our discussion. Everything was perfect!
Selva Grill is consistently good ! Whenever we visit Sarasota we always come back . The service and flavor of the food is excellent !
Once again, Selva Grill is one of the best restaurants in Sarasota. I come here with friends every time I'm in the area and it never disappoints. Creative presentation on the plate, efficient service, and scrumptious food. One of the best around!
Great but noisy. If you are going with more than 4 people it is hard to hear over the noise.
Our food was beyond amazing and our service was excellent. Our dessert even said “Happy Anniversary”. This is our go to place whenever we get a night out.
Came here with my mother for a nice dinner. We’ve been here before and it was amazing so we wanted to try again. We got pork tostadas and a crab cake. Both dishes were delicious as well as the drinks we had, Fire and Ice and Starburst. The service was great again and I can’t wait to come back!
Great food and dining room was nice. Will go back!
We love Selva Grill! It’s our go to place when we bring friends from out of town. Everyone is SO friendly. The food is amazing; best crabcake in SRQ!!!
Blake was our waiter and he was amazing!
Every dish (four people) was excellent. We had classic ceviche, spring rolls (yes, Chinese influence), paella, flank steak.
Loved the ceviche!
Selva is always delicious
We waited a rather long time for the waiter to take our order,and we also waited a long time to be served .
The fish in my ceviche was tough and the salmon in my main course had a mushy texture.
What I love about this place is that when you go you know you’re going to have a great experience. The food is always perfect and the service is impeccable.
Our dinner was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable.
We come to Selva Grill each year with our cousin when we visit him in Sarasota. We always enjoy ourselves and the other night was no exception! For my entrée I ordered a standout grilled tuna with guava glaze with crab-stuffed mussels and it was just the kind of unique and special dish that Selva Grill creates consistently! My husband and cousin ordered the Ahi Tuna and the Skirt Steak. We just love it here!
Food is always great. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Love the tuna, the short ribs are great too!
Terrific authentic Peruvian cocktails (Pesco Sour) and ceviche dishes. Great flavors.
Usually we frequent this restaurant when we have a special occasion or want a nice night out.
The food is usually great. However, on Friday evening our meals were uneven. We still enjoyed ourselves but were a bit disappointed that our usual go to dishes were not up to snuff. We understand every restaurant has an off night and would return but we were a bit disappointed.
Hard to give any stars to food as we didn’t get any. We were on time for our 6:15 reservation, told the server we had an 8:00 show, ordered quickly-nothing fancy-at 7:25 still no food. To their credit they comped our wine but terrible service from a place we generally enjoy.
Vacation trip - Selva for dinner with the family. Great menu options with wonderful specials. Service was fantastic.
The food was outstanding. The service was excellent.
Noise level was high and difficult to have conversation across the table.
Wow! What awesome presentation of top notch food!! Ahi tuna ceviche was explosive with flavor. I had bouillabaisse with shrimp, scallops, octopus, black grouper in a tomato broth that melted in my mouth. My wife’s mahi-mahi in a coconut sauce with calamari was fabulous. The dessert was amazing!! A triple mouse in a ring of dark tortufo chocolate with homemade whipped cream helped us finish off our smooth and complex bottle of Pinot Noir. Our waitress Debbie was outstanding.
We were vacationing in Sarasota and was told about Selva on Main Street in downtown... it's a Peruvian style restaurant, so delicious, different ceviches, tappas, good beer great atmosphere.
The table we requested was ready for us right on time. The food was great (as always) and our waiter was outstanding. The crab and avocado salad and the Spanish Caesar salads were both great starters and the steak entrees with amazing fries were perfect.
Food and service were fabulous as usual!
We ate outside on the sidewalk with 5 adults, two elementary school kids and 3 dogs during the week before Easter. The staff was unfazed. The food was fabulous! We are already looking forward to our return. Do not miss this wonderful delicious experience!
A great dining experience
Food was excellent with good presentation and portions
Had a Birthday celebration and all four of us enjoyed our means and appetizers very much!
The Paella and Duck dishes were excellent. As was the Tres Leches dessert. Serve was impeccable and our waitress gave us excellent suggestions from drinks to appetizers to dessert. She also made sure that we would make it to the Van Wezel on time. We will def be back.
Short Ribs are Excellent!
We were there for our wedding anniversary. Great choice. There were many items in the menu that we wanted to try but settled on two different ceviches and the skirt steaks with chimichurri over a bed of plantains. Both courses were excellent. Blake, our server, was friendly and knowledgeable and the overall service was excellent. Highly recommend for special occasions.
