Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar - Sarasota Ratings and Reviews
Two things: First - received a call from the hostess who was very rude asking about if our reservation was for teenagers and then did not listen and asked if they would have people with them. Very Rude!
Second, the music was very loud. Our table was located at the top of the stairs and we could
Not hear to talk. Fortunately, he took a break. I am not elderly and I found it very loud. I was with 4 70’s + and they were very bothered.
Lunch was lovely today, outside overlooking the street on the upstairs veranda. Crab bisque was creamy and delicious. My shrimp and grilled vegetables plate was very filling, I loved the grilled cauliflower. This is a go to spot for me at St. Armands circle, always a nice island decor paired with fresh healthy food. Wait staff is very attentive.
Bad experience. We waited an hour for a cold dinner after tracking down the waiter. The appetizer was the famous coconut shrimp that tasted like it came out of a frozen food box. Manager and staff overworked with zero customer service. This is a tourist trap not worth the high price our hassle! We will not be back, beware!
Our waitress,Julia, gave us the rush as soon as we sat down for our 8 pm reservation. She was taking unfinished appetizers away, constantly asking if we were ready to order and attempting to take unfinished meals away. We spent over $450 and felt we were in a whirlwind. Definitely not the place for a leisurely dinner. She should consider being a drill sergeant.
We always cringe when we are being seated on the first floor at TB at St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota. The dining area on the first floor across from the bar is very loud and not a very desirable place to sit. We were told there was no upstairs dining available due to two large groups. TB needs to put some sound reducers up to deflect the loud bar scene from the dining area... long past due!
We visit the Sarasota area every year after Christmas and always shop at the Tommy Bahama Retail Store. This year we decided to use one of our $50 rewards to eat at the restaurant. We were not disappointed!! Great music, tasty food and the pineapple creme brûlée was excellent!
Two entrances to this restaurant but no one manning either one. Waited for 10 minutes before we asked for assistance only for the waiter to ask me if I was looking for the bathroom. Service was good but the restaurant was old and very plain compared to other Tommy Bahama restaurants I have eaten at.
Server lied about charging our gift card $80 when he took $96. We actually even overtipped on the balance. Very disappointing. I have the gift card balance charge which he showed as $80. We have never had an experience at any Tommy Bahama restaurant or store before like this. I even asked him before we left...and left him more cash. Shame on you!
