Scallops Rumaki are to die for as well as the Mar Vista Seafood Platter. The view is outstanding and so is the service.

Mar Vista currently suffers from a renovation that has actually closed the entire interior restaurant. Combined with a no reservations policy, it is difficult to plan an evening since the tables are few and the waits quite long. The only tables were outdoors, arrayed willy-nilly,...More

We are holding off on the renovation of the inside until sometime next summer. We do not want to interfere with our busy season.

Unfortunately the county nor the city has a defined ordinance regarding doggie dining and we cannot take the chance on one customer putting our health certificate in jeopardy. So sorry because we love dogs!

Description
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.
