It was Taste of Sarasota week, and we dined here 3 times -- once for burgers and wine at the bar, twice for dinner. The crab cake appetizers were wonderful, as well as the crab-stuffed grouper and chicken cutlets on polenta with mushroom sauce. Both desserts -- flourless chocolate cake with raspberries -- were sinfully good, and the chef had... More

Enjoyed a quiet table by the window with a lovely garden view. We had delicious brioche French toast and steelcut oatmeal with coconut milk and pineapple chutney and almonds. Server was prompt with the coffee and water refills. Beautiful start to the day in Sarasota.

Stopped in for drinks and dinner after a conference. The bartenders immediately make you welcome. The food was good and reasonably priced for Sarasota standards.

I think the inconsistent reviews are from the inconsistent clientele and expectations of staying at a Hyatt. Let’s first and foremost point out that the bar is open til midnight and they serve food up to that point. They have a happy hour and great bar snacks. Alla is the greatest bartender. She is caring, attentive and very funny. She... More

A group of 8 of us including adults and children had dinner here while staying at the hotel for several days. Normally I try and avoid dining at a hotel restaurant- I want to go out and see Sarasota! Due to several circumstances, it was easier for us to stay in to have dinner. While we had dinner on the... More

We had four meals in this restaurant. The breakfast buffet was varied and quite good. The dinner selections though somewhat limited were also good quality and tasty. The staff was pleasant and efficient. All in all a very good hotel restaurant.

This restaurant is useful to you only if your situation is the same as ours was: you've traveled all day, checked into the hotel late, and need a dinner that's conveniently at hand. The menu is quite limited, the dishes are uninspired, and the service is lackadaisical. The brutal truth is that I do better than Currents on a nightly... More

For a hotel restaurant in Florida, this isn't bad. Nor is it that good, but since we didn't feel like leaving the hotel in the rain, and as we dined here our first night after arrival, I can speak with the experience of having eaten here two nights in a row. Since the menu is small, that is challenging for... More

We never went to the actual Currents restaurant but ordered room service from them twice. My husband's fish tacos were excellent. Fresh tasting and ample, they were quite a hit. The roasted asparagus was also a savory delight. However, they advertised fresh fruit smoothies on their menu. I ordered a blue antioxidant smoothie and was shocked to receive what I... More
