We arrived at 11:00 when the restaurant opened. Beautiful day on the water, lots of slips to dock. Food was fantastic, coconut shrimp salad, drinks, service was great! 5 adults and 4 children. Kids played at the water's edge, we ate out under the trees!

We were seated under twinkling trees, by the water, gorgeous setting. The hostess who seated us was lovely, our server was very pleasant. I had a Greek salad which was good, my friend had the grouper sandwich, the fish portion was tiny and over cooked. We both had fries that were not near hot when they arrived. I would go... More

The name tells almost all you need to know. Restaurant and Pub on the water. Mar Vista has an absolutely charming beachfront seating area shaded by an ancient banyan tree.The rest of the place is a pretty generic outdoor covered deck area with plastic chairs.I did not get a peek at the indoor dining area which their website describes as...

We had friends visiting and went to the beach for the day. Weren't dressed to necessarily go "fancy" and had been here before so we knew you could go either fancy or casual. The atmosphere on the inter-coastal side of the water is quiet, festive and relaxed. The food was wonderful... and Yanni was more than happy to help us... More

Sadly the menu has been changed, prices have gone up and portions tiny - such a shame - one of our favourites on Anna Maria but now won't be going back - huge disappointment

Stunning venue, with great food. Located in The Village, this restaurant was our "find" of the trip. Our server was delightful, and completely focused on making our dining experience memorable. The setting was charming and romantic. We dined al fresco under one of those beautiful, giant spreading trees with strung party lights. There were families having dinner beside us, so... More

We will return to this place. Food was great, staff were happy and helpful. Rainy night so outside under the trees wasn't opened, it looked beautiful

We love the Sandbar and today tried the Beach House restaurant. Our waiter suggested that we tried their third restaurant the Mar Vista and was kind enough to give us a coupon for a margarita. We went this evening and it was not busy and were immediately seated. After 10 minutes someone finally brought ice water to the table and... More

Stopped in for lunch. Menu was varied, but mostly seafood. Prices on the high side, I suppose due to location on the water. We were tired of fish, so ordered a hamburger and a chicken sandwich. Both came with fries. They were okay, but nothing exceptional. Service was okay.

Great service by Yanni the Greek. Stop in soon. I can't believe they require 100 characters for these reviews.

Enjoy a delicious fresh Florida seafood meal inside the quaint dining room, on the outdoor covered deck or under the ancient Buttonwood Trees overlooking picturesque Sarasota Bay. Farm to fork, gulf to table and pasture to plate. It's waterfront dining with a unique atmosphere. Leave a dollar bill on the wall and a little bit of your heart to find on your return visit. Voted #1 place to Dock and Dine with our own private 14 slip dock. There is no place quite like the Mar Vista for real Florida dining.
